Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll made a surprising admission to reporters following the team’s dispiriting 13-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.

Carroll was asked if Russell Wilson’s absence is the reason the Seahawks have failed to finish in the past three weeks.

“I’ve been here a long time,” Carroll said after a lengthy pause. “And if we didn’t have Russell, I probably wouldn’t be here a long time.”

Indeed, the Seahawks have relied extensively on Wilson over the past few seasons as Carroll has largely failed to adapt to a changing league. They are currently 2-5 and have not won a single game since Wilson suffered a finger injury against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5. Geno Smith simply has not been able to elevate the offense in Wilson’s place and Seattle has looked unprepared and poorly-coached as a whole.

The calls for Carroll’s firing are louder than ever before, and it looks like it’s a real possibility. However, it is surprising to hear Carroll admit that he probably wouldn’t be in Seattle for as long as he has without Wilson.
