Pete Carroll and John Schneider (US Presswire).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

On Friday, Pro Football Weekly released a report that claimed Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider aren’t getting along so well (not unlike perhaps a certain pair in Kansas City -- coincidentally enough, both squads are 0-2).

PFW publisher Hub Arkush said Caroll is very unhappy with many of the moves Schneider made this season (Tarvaris Jackson, Sidney Rice and Robert Gallery). But if the two were to duke it out for their jobs, Arkush said Carroll would be the victor.

But after hearing that report, Carroll was upset. After Friday’s practice, though he and Schneider goofily pretended like they were going to fight in front of the media, Carroll said this (via the Everett Heralh).

"That's extraordinarily irresponsible," he said. "It's inaccurate, it's lazy, and I wouldn't believe a word they said. That's so far from true. John and I are as close as you can get. I've never been closer with anybody I've ever worked with and every decision we make, we make together. They don't even understand, so whatever that was -- I don't know who those guys were or where they came from, but they were just dead wrong."

"It's just weak that somebody would say stuff like that. They know nothing, they never talked to us, they've never seen us. They know nothing about what we're all about. "

And if you need more ice water thrown on the PFW report, consider what writer John Boyle (aka as the CBSSports.com Seahawks Rapid Reporter) penned in his article: “Even before Carroll addressed the report, it did seem a bit odd to those of us who are around those two on an almost daily basis.”

That's lazy? It seems PC always says that when people write bad stuff about him. Why doesn't he say that it's not true or is a lie. But lazy? What college did he "graduate" from?

in the offseason they made many bold and risky moves...surely Gallery,Rice,Miller are very good players..but who decide to give the keys of the team to Tavaris Jackson_Whitehust(if i remember correctly they gave up a 2nd rounder..and this is enough to be fired)must pay for his mistakes...
also the last draft was questionable(Carpenter 1st round..)..the team has to switch to a permanent 3-4 def..fit better with their personals..i think Brayant and Mebane(brock too) could thrive as 3-4 ends(in 4-3 format are thin at DE)...
now it's just time to ride Lynch..no other weapon outside Rice(but WRs need QB!!!!!!!!)..control the clock..try not to go under soon(forcing Jackson to become a QB)...and rely on special teams and big plays on defense...

So what he's saying is he's okay with the aquisitions of Jackson, Rice and Gallery? What a joke of a team. I thought I had it bad.
