Carroll: Wilson trying too hard during Seahawks' 0-2 start

RENTON, Wash. (AP) Pete Carroll believes Russell Wilson is trying too hard to create opportunities during Seattle's winless start and in the process is making the kinds of fourth-quarter mistakes that have largely been absent during his career.

"I'm finding Russ over-trying a little bit," Carroll said during his radio show on KIRO-AM in Seattle on Tuesday, a day after the Seahawks dropped to 0-2 with a 24-17 loss at Chicago. "He's pressing in difficult situations to try and see if he can come up with a way to make something happen instead of just getting rid of the football."

The latest example came in front of a national audience Monday night. With a chance to lead a potential late comeback against the Bears, Wilson threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown. He fumbled on Seattle's next drive while trying to escape pressure. They were the kinds of costly mistakes Wilson has mostly avoided in the past.
