After the Week 11 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the Seattle Seahawks have slumped to a record of 3-7 on the year and dead last place in the NFC West. While the blame for the team’s recent failures should be spread around fairly, it’s not surprising coach Pete Carroll is willing to take the lion’s share himself.

Carroll was asked whether or not he might need to tweak his coaching style to right the ship this season.

“It’s a really good question because we have done things in a particular way with commitment, based on the philosophies and the approach of how we do things,” Carroll said Monday. “When things aren’t working out right, you have to be open to whatever you have to do. We have to do whatever we have to do and that’s competing to me. I’m not trying to stick to the script, I’m trying to do what’s right.”

The Seahawks still have a statistical shot of making the playoffs this year, although their chances are slim at best and Carroll isn’t going to overhaul Seattle’s entire philosophy for the second half of the season.

“We aren’t going to make wholesale changes at this time, but the subtle changes that we make to try and enhance our chances of doing better,” Carroll stated. “That’s what is at hand, and I am wide open to whatever.”
