Pete Carroll said the Seattle Seahawks are ready for the Super Bowl after their final walkthrough practice on Saturday.
"We're ready to go," Carroll said. "That's kind of how we are. I don't know if it's loose, but we're where we're supposed to be. This is how we always prepare. This is the exact routine we always do. And the guys did it perfectly today. It's been great. We have no hesitation saying it's been exactly what we hoped to get done. We're physically right and mentally right and we're ready to go.”
Among the guests at Seattle's final practice were former running back Shaun Alexander and former linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski, both players on Seattle's other Super Bowl team eight years ago that lost to Pittsburgh.
"It's always great to see Shaun and those guys," Carroll said. "It's good to have them around. It just kind of reminds us what we represent.”
