Let's give Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks a lot of credit for a giving Kevin Williams a chance to add a Super Bowl appearance to his career. Carroll, who was a defensive assistant for five years with the Vikes a long time back and almost became their head coach in 1992, has been head coach of the Seattle Seahawks since 2010.
