Seahawks | Pete Carroll blames hormones for first-half call

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll blamed his hormones for his choice of going for it on fourth-and-two from the three-yard line with 14 seconds left in the first half of the team's Week 8 game. The Seahawks ran RB Marshawn Lynch up the middle on an inside draw, and he got the first down, but fell a foot short of the end zone. Without a timeout, the Seahawks could not stop the clock and a minor scrum ensued as Seattle tried to lineup, without success, to run another play. "We learned about what happens when a coach gets hormonal and tries to freakin' jam it down their throat for the touchdown there right at the half," Carroll said about the play. "That was a mistake. It would have been a good call if we made it. But we didn't."
