Pete Carroll is less of a great coach and more of having a **** ton of talent on that team. They have a ton of great pass rushers, a very talented secondary, a very talented linebacking core, a good O-line when healthy. Honestly, a ton of us could coach that team to a winning record lol.
I will give credit to Carroll with those defensive back injuries not hurting the D. But it does help to have the best pass rush in the league (see the ESPN article on controlling the line of scrimmage using time to throw).
