Morning links and notes: Seahawks leave San Diego happy

The Seahawks headed home late Thursday night/early Friday morning after their trip to San Diego, having gotten much of what they came — a win, and lots of chances to evaluate young players.

Here was Pete Carroll’s official statement afterward:

“Well, we started out pretty sloppy. We had some trouble with some penalties and stuff like that. We were a little overly aggressive with some late hits. We didn’t get started very well. Otherwise it was really good. Everybody got to play who we had hoped to. The defense got a couple good series. We stopped them, which was good. We got a conditioning workout, which was good. I think once we settled down we played really solid football. ”

Asked if there were any surprises, Carroll said: “Not too many surprises. I was just disappointed we had so many penalties. It was tough getting started. The rest of it kind of fell in like the way we like to see our guys play. We know we have good depth. Our depth in the preseason games is really going to show up. At first we didn’t do what we like to do with the offense in the first half. Other than that, Russell (Wilson) they (the Chargers) couldn’t get him. They ran around him. They didn’t hit him.”

The Seahawks are off now until Sunday, so there won’t likely be much news from the team for a few days.
