Pete Carroll says Russell Wilson needs to get rid of the ball

He looked short and he looked for deep balls. It's been a insane battle between the Seahawks and Bears during Monday Night Football.

Mitchell Trubisky didn't impress his opponent during Monday night's 24-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

Wilson has been sacked six times in each game this season.

Carroll said that during what appeared to be one fourth quarter antagonistic conversation between the coach and the quarterback that there wasn't an issue.

Considering that the Bears were playing in the MNF game, have a huge fan base, and the historic element to recognizing Hall of Fame ceremonies, the network seemed to miss an opportunity. Will Mychal Kendricks play another game for Seattle? Wide receiver Tyler Lockett grabbed a perfectly placed 19-yard touchdown pass from Wilson in the right corner of the end zone. Brandon Marshall struggled to get open against one of his former teams.

"I misread a little bit of something happening", Carroll said. "There's some things I definitely have to clean up". I just misread the situation. "We've really just got to get a better start and try to catch that fire that we have in the fourth quarter and put it in the first, second and third". The Seahawks only mustered 74 rushing yards on 22 carries. "You have some failure every once in a while, but I believe the next time is going to be successful and I think that's the mentality".

Wilson began the fourth quarter with just 69 yards on 9-for-20 passing, but he tried to rally the Seahawks down the stretch.

Notable: San Francisco running back Matt Breida carried the ball 11 times for 138 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown in the third quarter. What he said was, 'I could have fixed it, and we didn't need to call a timeout, ' but we needed to fix it. But Trubisky has yet to have the breakout game Chicago wants to see before it fully embraces him as a franchise quarterback. He fumbled on Seattle's next drive while trying to escape pressure.

The Seahawks did get a last-minute touchdown to keep the score respectable, as Will Dissly hauled in a 2-yard reception with 14 seconds left in the game.

The lackluster showing for Seattle's offense wasted a solid performance for its defense, led by two second-quarter interceptions for Shaquill Griffin.

Mahomes' only start past year came in the season finale, while Trubisky started the Bears' final 12 games in 2017. On Tuesday on 710 ESPN Seattle's Brock and Salk show, Carroll said, "I could do better". "We had some guys that were out so he had to double-dip, and really I wanted to see how we would do with Rashaad and get him some playing time and get him out there". In Clark's blunt review of Trubisky, he said the "help" he referenced was not only from the defense but also the head coach's game plan.

It just wasn't enough, not with the Seahawks' ineffective offense. Whether it's Nagy's unique offense keeping the Cardinals off balance or newly-acquired pass rusher Khalil Mack leading what looks to be a talented defense, Arizona will have its work cut out on Sunday. "You got to be able to go for it. It's hurt me more than it's helped me", Trubisky said after the game.
