What Pete Carroll told Tyler Lockett on the sidelines after his brutal start

The Seahawks continue to lead the NFL in feel-good stories this season by a comfortable margin. Seattle fans were treated to a few more this afternoon in their team’s 27-13 win over the Giants.

One of the best was the redemptive performance by wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who got off to an absolutely brutal start. His fumble at the two-yard line led to the Giants’ first touchdown, followed by a couple of rare misses near the end zone. After the second – an unthinkable drop on a wide-open play – Lockett was despondent on the bench on the broadcast.

That’s when head coach Pete Carroll came over and spoke with him.

After the game, we learned what he said.

According to Greg Bell at the News Tribune, Carroll told Lockett that he’s the best receiver he’s ever seen.

Lockett made up for his mistakes by making a couple of clutch plays – including the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter. He finished with five catches, 63 yards and one score.
