Pete Carroll confident Seahawks will improve pass rush
by Michael Hurcomb |

The Seahawks have totaled just seven sacks through their first six games. Though, coach Pete Carroll remains confident in the defense, especially pass rushers Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett, who have combined for no sacks in the last four games.

"These guys have rushed really hard and been very aggressive," Carroll said of his starting defensive ends, per ESPN. "I’ve looked at every one of their rushes and situations and I think we’re going to count on those guys to continue to do what they’re doing and try to help around them."

Carroll said the team will try to make changes to improve the pass rush.

"We’ve got to get Mike active inside and get him to be the disruptor that he can be," Carroll said, hinting they might use Bennett on more snaps as a defensive tackle. "We need to help him with some stuff there, some stuff scheme-wise we’ll tweak here and there. Those guys are bringing it. In my mind it’s going to happen and we’ll just keep working until it does because we know it’s there."
