Cocky Pete Carroll dials up the smug on the sidelines of Super Bowl – a timeline

If there’s anything Super Bowl XLVIII was missing, aside from the Denver Broncos actually being competitive, it was cocky Pete Carroll sideline shots. I mean the Seahawks turned the game into a rout within minutes, and FOX was lagging on the smug Carroll shots. I was very disappointed. But once Seattle just started pouring it on in the second half, they finally complied with my wish for max Carroll cockiness.

Below is a timeline of Carroll’s demeanor on the sidelines. The cockiness increases in correspondence with Seattle’s success.

This was Carroll after Malcolm Smith’s interception return for a touchdown.

Carroll gave Smith a hug, but he wasn’t ready to celebrate despite the team’s 22-0 second quarter lead.

But after Percy Harvin returned the opening kickoff of the second half for a touchdown, cocky Carroll began to make an appearance:

What’s that? A smile from Carroll? Nice.

Petey really began to pep up after Jermaine Kearse’s 23-yard touchdown catch to make it 36-0:

We didn’t achieve max levels of Carroll smugness, though, until Doug Baldwin scored to make it 43-8. That’s when Carroll hit off-the-chart levels. He was cranking, gum chewing, and wooing all over the place.

And when the final seconds ticked off, Carroll gave his players hugs and was all smiles:

You know, I’m not easily persuaded as a consumer, but if Pete Carroll started his own brand of chewing gum, I would totally buy it.
