RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Pete Carroll was thrilled to be in the postseason but knew it was a mirage.
Two seasons ago, in his first venture back in the NFL from the college game, Carroll guided the Seattle Seahawks into the postseason with the dubious distinction of being the only team in NFL history to win a division title with a losing record. Seattle at least showed itself worthy of the playoffs by upsetting New Orleans, but was quickly dispatched at Chicago in the second round.
He knew the Seahawks needed to be younger, faster, more athletic and deeper. A makeover was needed.
When the Seahawks (11-5) face Washington in Sunday's playoff opener, they'll do so with 33 new faces on the 53-man roster from just two seasons ago.
