Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carrol points out his Croatian heritage to journalists

Seahawks uncertain what to expect from Newton as Pats QB

Sunday's matchup between the 69-year-old Carroll and 68-year-old Belichick will bring together the two oldest coaches now in the National Football League and teams both seeking 2-0 starts after each had impressive debuts in Week 1.

And while that admiration was clear when their teams met in the Super Bowl almost six years ago, it seems to have only grown since. So, Belichick requested to talk to reporters who cover the Seahawks on Monday, taking questions for 17 minutes.

Seattle's history with Newton goes back to 2012. "There's not enough games for us in their new thinking to know what to expect here", Carroll said Wednesday.

"It's quite a different group from the time we've played them before", he said.

Bryant played 25 games over his final two seasons at Washington, grabbing three interceptions in 12 games as a senior.

Seattle Seahawks' coach Pete Carroll pumped the brakes on the "Let Russ Cook" bandwagon that shifted into overdrive following the Seahawks' win in Week 1.

After a year out of football, Carroll jump-started his career at USC, then came to Seattle in 2010.

When Bill Belichick replaced Pete Carroll as head coach in New England 20 years ago, neither could have guessed two decades later they'd be viewed as two of the better coaches during that span.

Carroll was sacked after going 27-21 in three seasons with the Patriots and making the playoffs his first two years but going 8-8 in 1999.

"This guy is a tremendous player", Belichick said, according to Mass Live's Chris Mason. I don't know. But I don't really see anybody better than this player.

"No", McDaniels countered. "Really, it's more of a function of what is best to do against a specific opponent that we were playing". The Patriots limited the Miami Dolphins to just 182 passing yards and intercepted three passes by Dolphins' quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick during their 21-11 win in Week 1. Newton also rushed for two touchdowns and 75 yards to lead both teams. The fact that we're still coaching and our paths are still crossing, I guess we've done pretty well or somebody would have replaced us, " Belichick said. He's obviously got great leadership, playmaking skills, he plays very well in the most critical situations in the game, his decision making, running, passing.

"I don't think people understand, we played Seattle in Carolina like they were a division game", Newton said. "We'll have to be better than that". At left is head coach Bill Belichick.

"He kind of controls the middle of the field, " Belichick said.

" ... He nearly plays like a safety around the line of scrimmage and some of the things that they do where he has to over routes and things like that".

Belichick is very familiar with Jamal Adams, who played against the Patriots the last three years while with the Jets. "We have a player at that position that can certainly help us, but obviously we have to be smart about what we're doing".

The Seahawks' game plan was superb against an overzealous Falcons defense with a weak secondary. I feel like they're confident in Cam's ability to throw the ball as well.

"I don't know that any one thing, if you do it over, over and over, is sustainable in our league".

"They did a good job with Atlanta". Then, they put them up there around a line of scrimmage and you're anxious about him, then he doesn't come and they do something else.
