A few signs Carroll has work to do

Ryan McCrystal of ESPN Stats & Information sent along the following charts after the Seahawks confirmed Pete Carroll's hiring.

Ryan was basically looking at what Carroll inherits: a 5-11 team with issues.

Pass poor

Only Ryan Fitzpatrick and JaMarcus Russell have averaged fewer yards per pass attempt than Matt Hasselbeck over the past two seasons.

Deep trouble

The chart shows quarterbacks with the lowest 2009 ratings on passes through at least 21 yards.

Left out

The chart shows the NFL's five-worst teams in yards per attempt when running left in 2009. Seattle missed injured left tackle Walter Jones.

Percentage play

Only the Lions allowed a higher completion percentage on first down last season.
