The Seahawks missed 12 tackles, more than they whiffed on in any game last season, per Pro Football Focus. Kam Chancellor had 11 tackles, but he also missed three. Pete Carroll said on 710 KIRO today, “Kam Chancellor was just banging folks. He was hitting them. He might’ve missed the strike zone a few times.”
As for Earl Thomas’ poor decisions not to make fair catches, Carroll said, “We will keep working on it to get better.” Thomas did not seem to think he did anything wrong: “I can’t control what happened.”
