Playoffs? Playoffs? Pete Carroll answers a reporter's phone during press conference

By Cindy Boren

Maybe this is just the kind of loosey-goosey coach who should scare the bejeebers out of the Chicago Bears.

A reporter's cellphone, placed on the podium to record Pete Carroll's coachspeak during a press conference, rang and Carroll, in a move straight out of Lombardi's coaching manual, paused and answered it.

"Can I get that for you? Somebody's phone is ringing...let's check that out...ignore...ringtone...

'Hello? No, no, not now. It's a press conference. Sorry. I'll get back to you, okay?'

"Old friend from high school. I'm sorry; what was the question? You think they're gonna call back?"

Just wacky enough to waltz into Chicago with a sub-.500 team and beat the Bears? Watch the video here.
