QB Carpenter performance in week 4 was dissappointing as he was sacked 10 times. The offensive line did its best to protect Carpenter but the Seahawks were fully aware of his deficiencies when they drafted him, Carpenters poor decision making and his unability to get rid of the ball costed the Seahawks a win.
Reporter #1: "What can you tell us about your performance against the Cardinals? Obviously it must be upsetting to be sacked 10 times in a single game, probably the most in NFL history for a rookie "
Carpenter:"It is really upsetting to me. That is not the type of records I planned to obtain in my career. The coaches and I have put in alot of time in practice in preparing for this Sunday I feel that I've let the team, coaching and the fans down."
Reporter #2: "The Cards came out blazing with their blitzing attack from the get go, what was the plan to slow them down after half time?"
Carptenter: "I have to give the Cardinals MLB and DE's credit. They did a great job in disguising and mixing up their blitzes schemes. We tried placing our HB and FB in to protect me but in some cases they were just over runned. I was caught off guard in the first half, didnt expect them to come out strong like that. Our offensive line held thier own and did the best to protect me but I have to put all the blame on me. I've made some bad choices in trying to find Scott and Tanner open."
Reporter #3: "What can we look forward to in your next game against the Dallas Cowboys, they're 3-0 and lead the league in few points allowed?"
Carpenter: "This game was an eye opener for me and have learned alot from it. I will continue to work hard in learning what there is to learn and soak up everything the coaches are teaching me. That's one of my best qualities, to learn from my mistakes and move forward. Thank you that is all......"
Coach Carrol: "It is obvoius that we have a lot of work ahead of us but we are confident that Bill will just get better. He did pass for 277 yards, we just need to work with him in improving his decision making and awareness skills so he can move within the pocket and learn to get rid of the ball alot sooner to the wide recievers. Thank you all...."
Reporters: "Coach, coach.........."
