SEATTLE – Pete Carroll did perhaps the most Pete Carroll thing ever Saturday night as the Seattle Seahawks were preparing for the Minnesota Vikings, according to a report from Sports Illustrated.

The man got so pumped up, he tackled a whiteboard.

SI’s Greg Bishop reports that the Seahawks’ coach got so jacked up while he was talking to safety Kam Chancellor that he charged across a  hotel ballroom in downtown Minneapolis and form-tackled the whiteboard, breaking it into pieces.

Carroll, by the way, is 64 years old.

SI talked to a few players about it; here’s what they had to say.

Richard Sherman: “We already know he’s the craziest, kookiest coach around. But I was like, he must be getting senile now.”

Doug Baldwin: “I was like, he’s trippin’. Like, this old man is trying to hurt himself.”

Michael Bennett: “Of all the crazy s— that Pete has done, this is Top 1, probably.”

The insanity continued the next day, of course, when the Minnesota Vikings inexplicably missed a chip-shot field goal in the waning moments to give the Seahawks a 10-9 victory.

Seattle moves on to face the Carolina Panthers next Sunday at 10:05 a.m. on Q13 FOX. Coverage begins at 6 a.m. on the home of the Seahawks.
