Putting more pressure on Wilson would have made a difference, Bruce Carter says

Linebacker Bruce Carter said putting more pressure on Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson would have made a difference in Sunday’s game.

“I think so. Definitely,” he said. “With him being such a young quarterback, I think putting pressure on him will make things complicated for him with his passing reads and what not. Putting a little pressure on him would kind of change things for us.”

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the danger was flushing the strong-running rookie out of the pocket.

“What he does best is move around and create plays with his feet,” Garrett said. “He did that in the game. We didn't want to give him too many opportunities to do that, so you want to hem him in. We did pressure him some times. We did play coverage other times.”

The Cowboys got two sacks, both from linebacker Anthony Spencer.
