    Wednesday and Thursday Coach Carroll will speak again before a big joint press conference with Carroll and Patriots head coach, Bill Belichick.

    The Seahawks will be blitzed by the media all week long.

    On Sunday, the team didn't have much time to settle in.

    Players and Carroll walked off the plane and right in front of the camera.

    “We’re just out here trying to win a ball game.  We're focused on that, playing good football, letting the chips fall where they may.  The rest of it will fall into place afterwards,” said Richard Sherman.

    A lot of the talk is about Marshawn Lynch.

    The NFL has warned the Seahawks that if Lynch does another obscene gesture after a touchdown during the Super Bowl, they'll be penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.

    Lynch has been fined twice in the last few months for grabbing his crotch after a touchdown.

    Coach Carroll told KIRO 7 the issue will be addressed.
