The Seahawks are in crisis mode following another loss, this time to the division rival Cardinals on Sunday in another pathetic showing from their offense.

Coach Pete Carroll just finished his weekly press conference with the media. Here are a few notes from that conversation.

Updates on Tre Brown, Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny

The Seahawks had another potential season-ending injury yesterday, with standout rookie cornerback Tre Brown suffering a patellar tendon injury. Pete Carroll says the sooner he can get operated on, the better.

Running back Chris Carson will also need surgery on his neck, which has kept him on IR since Week 5. Carroll says a disc needs to be fused.

Carroll also said Rashaad Penny is dealing with a minor hamstring issue.

Penny only got two carries against the Cards on Sunday.

Offensive issues are "pretty clear"

On the subject of Seattle’s flailing offense, coach Carroll said that Russell Wilson and him are connected and the things that need to happen to correct it are pretty clear.

Carroll also said (again) he’d like to see more effective running.

No surprises from Arizona

Carroll says the Seahawks were not taken off-guard by anything the Cardinals did defensively yesterday, echoing what he said on Sunday that the issues were about execution as opposed to scheme.

For what it’s worth, that’s a different story than what Tyler Lockett told. He thinks teams are showing one thing on film and then presenting different looks on the field. Carroll seems to disagree.

Determining which is true is over our paygrade, but they can’t both be right.
