Nearly an entire calendar year had passed since Pete Carroll walked into the Seattle Seahawks headquarters on a Monday and faced his team coming off a regular-season loss.

Even he is curious to see how the Seahawks will react after losing 34-28 on Sunday in Indianapolis, a game Carroll lamented as one that got away.

There was no sluggish start for the Seahawks this time. They led 12-0, but the closing punch Seattle had shown was absent, outperformed by Andrew Luck and the Colts. Familiar problems from last year resurfaced for Seattle, including struggles on third down offensively and defensively.

Indianapolis outscored Seattle 11-0 in the fourth quarter and handed the Seahawks their first regular-season loss since Nov. 25, 2012, at Miami. The Seahawks had won nine straight regular-season games.

 

Coach  Carroll says wide receiver Percy Harvin has rejoined the Seahawks and is prepared to take the next step in his recovery from hip surgery.

Harvin tweeted Monday that he was back with the team and Carroll said Harvin is ready to take the "next level" in his training. Carroll said Harvin is running and went through a workout with trainers Monday.

Harvin had surgery in New York in early August and had been away from the team during rehab efforts. He is on the physically unable to perform list and is not eligible to come off until after Sunday's game at home with Tennessee. Carroll said there is still no definite timeline on when Harvin may be able to start practicing again.
