LaVar Arrington, Jonas Knox, and Brady Quinn react to the news that Russell Wilson wanted Head Coach Pete Carroll and General Manager John Schneider fired before he was traded to the Denver Broncos.

LaVar Arrington: "Russell Wilson wanted to have the ability to bring in and handle things the way that Tom Brady had handled them. And I just think that he got a little too far over his skis."
Jonas Knox: "Pete Carroll has got to be coming off this past season, if this report is true, has got to be feeling great about where he stands in comparison to Russell Wilson. It went as perfect as possible for Pete Carroll."
Brady Quinn: "I wonder where it all changed, if it changed after the Super Bowl, if it changed after some of the consistent success, if it was watching other guys do it, if there was outside influences, people who came into his life and started talking to him like that. Because it wasn't the guy I remember playing with."
