I was thinking this when I started reading the thread. I understand it was Thanksgiving weekend and the Seahawks probably weren't flying out of Seattle until Friday, but I heard that Harbaugh leaves earlier and gets his players in a routine on east coast time. It makes sense to get the players used to the time change.
As far as the players on Saturday, I don't think it was time for fun in the sun. They have the whole offseason for that. This was a business trip, nothing more. IMO, Pete and co. should've handled the bye week better and I think from his press conference he knows that too. Actually, he should've already known that being a coach for as long as he has. These mistakes are inexcusable sometimes.
