More about how exhausted they were at Seahawks still focused on recovery after last weekThe Seahawks as a whole played five quarters Sunday night, but the members of their defense were forced to carry most of the load.
And as a result of guys playing 100 snaps or more in a game, the Seahawks are focusing this week on recovery.
Via Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com, coach Pete Carroll has ordered his players to get eight or nine hours of sleep, hydrate often, and load up on carbohydrates after last week’s marathon against the Cardinals. His work this week is in conjunction with director of player health and performance Sam Ramsden, who is bringing the sports science and the holiday side dishes.
“I’ve been big on sweet potatoes,” Seahawks cornerback Deshawn Shead said. “I love sweet potatoes, so it’s been easy. You don’t have to tell me to carb up on sweet potatoes.”
