Carroll asks fans to ‘give the guy a break’ after Earl Thomas’ obscene gesture
RENTON, Wash. – Pete Carroll said Monday that he hopes Seattle Seahawks fans will cut Earl Thomas some slack for the obscene gesture he made on his way off the field after breaking his leg during Sunday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals. “I get it when people want to try to pass judgement and cast aspersions and all that or something, but in the heat of the moment, with all the emotional part of this, and the injury and the pain and all of that … shoot, I mean, give the guy a break," Carroll said.
