Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll believes his tight end Jimmy Graham was frustrated after the loss against the Green Bay Packers at the weekend, which is why he didn't speak to the media after the game.
The three-time Pro Bowler only caught one ball off two targets on Sunday night against the NFC North side and he didn't seem too thrilled about it, as he never spoke to any members of the media post game.
Carroll said to The Seattle Times that he believed his tight end was frustrated because he wants to help the team make plays and win the ball game.

He said: “I think he is [frustrated]. I think he’s a competitor. He wants the ball. He wants to help us win, I don’t think there’s any question about that. I feel that, too.”
After being one of the biggest acquisitions for any team in the NFL during the offseason, you wouldn't blame Graham for showing any frustrations at this present moment of time, but it is still early doors for him and his Seahawks playing days.
Whilst he isn't playing like he used to back in New Orleans, getting a touchdown after touchdown every game he plays, it will come in time, so he must remain patient.
His record so far for the Seahawks is seven receptions for 62 yards and one touchdown, and his team plays against the Chicago Bears in week three.
The Bears haven't been very good in their passing defense so far this season, so Graham should have a much-improved outing so long as he is given the ball.
