Carroll's pre-game speech: Play loose and have fun

Pete Carroll isn't going to change what has gotten his Seattle Seahawks to back-to-back Super Bowls.

NFL Media's Albert Breer reported that the coach has created normalcy for the team the last two weeks. In his pre-Super Bowl speech on Saturday night he was "the same ole Pete," one player told Breer.

Carroll's speech to the Seattle players sent the message they should have fun with the opportunity in front of them and play loose.

The Seahawks have run one of the NFL's loosest and most confident teams since Carroll returned to the NFL from USC. Seattle's players take their lead from Carroll, one of the coolest coaches in the business.
