Pete is now either the oldest or near oldest coach in the NFL. Part of his drive to build this team is because he was dissed by the league and media after his first tenure's in NY and NE. He wants to prove them all wrong.

It goes along way to explaining why he wants to bring in people that feel they have been dissed so they will play twice as hard to prove themselves. (sheman/browner/lynch/wilson etc)

I appreciate that Pete has his Win Forever philosphy and he wants to build a self sustaining system of excellence in Seattle but the question is once Pete accomplishes a Super Bowl win to go along with his NCAA championship, does he deceide he proved the media and others wrong and pulls the plug?

Now personally I hope that day never happens but if it takes Seattle say 2 more years to win the SB (I want it this year) will Pete pull the plug or do you think he will want to stay for the ride for the next 5 years with this group and those he brings in and goes for 2 - 3 more SB's

I think if Seattle wins it all this year or next he will stay around for a few more years but if it takes 2 to 3 more years for us to get the SB he may retire after. Your thoughts

Pretty sure he wants to go out with the "dynasty" moniker associated with him.

this. When you've built a team like he and JS have, you want to win several with them while you can, then you retire either when you lose several key players, or when the team starts to decline.

I think Pete will coach until its just not fun for him anymore, you can clearly see he is enjoying himself as of right now.

I friggen hope not. I think we're built to make a run for the next five years, I think Pete stays for at least the next 4.

Coughlin is super old and has won a couple titles, yet he's still coaching.

Some people are 55 and look and act tired and old. Others will be 80 and be young at heart filled with energy. I see PC as the young 80 year old. I dod think maybe he will bring in good talent under him and be able to work "less" but he really looks like he is having fun and he is either deceiving us all or will continue simply until he is not having fun............

I actually expect PC to turn over a stacked roster to the next in line (possibly Dan Quinn). However, I don't see him retiring until coaching either kills him or he's got 3 rings on his hand. (I think the latter is more probable.)

Win Forever doesn't really hold true if what you really mean is "win once"

While I hope that Carroll stays for longer, I believe he WILL retire once he wins a Super Bowl. Just a gut feeling.

Pete is way too much of a driven type A personality to retire. He's gonna coach until they pry the laminated play card out of his cold dead hands.

That is a complete grabbed-out-of-thin-air (or from between your cheeks) assumption, and then you use that assumption to conclude something that has a much better explanation.

Pete couldn't give two rat-craps about what people think of him, and he isn't the least bit interested in proving people wrong for being "dissed" by the league. If you read his book, you'll understand that being let go from those two teams, in those circumstances, were essential in his going through the process of discovering himself. And, by the way, Pete himself doesn't think they were wrong for letting him go -- why the hell would that be a motivating factor at all, let alone now?

If it's next year, no. If it's in 4-5 years, I think there's a decent chance, and I wouldn't blame him.

I think Pete will be here at least 4 more years I don't see him getting a ring and then leaving.

Pete may seem old on paper, but he's young at heart and I think he's doing this job not just to prove anything to anyone, but because he genuinely loves the game and he loves the energy associated with being the young team he has built. I don't see Pete retiring any time soon.

pLUS pLUS one one. Remember, his mantra is "Win Forever" not "Win a Superbowl" with emphasis on the "a." We want to win "Superbowls" plural! Besides, I'm sure he wants to leave no doubt that his philosophy is a good one.

Not after one, especially if we make it this year. He has more to prove than one and done. He wants a run here like he had at Southern Cal.

And like was said above, he's still having a lot of fun. He'll go another 5 years, at least, IMHO, maybe 10.

Yeah I agree, it's a lot harder for a coach to get into trouble in the NFL well unless they bust him for handing out adderall LOL :roll:

So, which team do you really cheer for? Because it's obviously not the Seahawks.

If it were possible to break down one's DNA into words, "compete" and "competition" would no doubt be found in the bonding of his protons and neutorns. With that said, it is hard to imagine him as the retiring type. It's easier to picture him still roaming the sidelines somewhere at 85, wearing the windshield-style, coke bottle glasses Paterno used to wear.

Come to think of it, I'd love to see a photo-shopped version of Pete wearing those glasses, raising a cane over his head, while belting out a Rick Flair "WOOOOOO!". :0190l:

Pete is too competitive to retire. Unless someone else hints at wanting to retire, he might want to "win" and retire first.

Possibly. But he will probably retire this year after Harbaugh beats him in the NFCCG. :th2thumbs:
