By Danny O’Neil | The Seattle Times

Coach Pete Carroll did not throw down a gauntlet, but he did make his intentions clear. He wants to run the ball.

And that reality was enough to make you wonder if he was bringing a knife to a gun fight, which is what makes this year’s Super Bowl so encouraging from Seattle’s perspective.
