Golden Tate described the suspensions of Walter Thurmond and Brandon Browner for substance abuse as "selfish."

"Everyone should realize where this team is," Tate said Tuesday on 710 ESPN radio in Seattle. "You are affecting way more than yourself. I feel like that was kind of a selfish move on both those guys' part.

"But it is what it is. The show must go on and that's what we're gonna do."

Thurmond will be eligible to return on Dec. 23, while Browner is out for a year.

"We dealt with it today," Pete Carroll said after practice. "We talked about it in meetings and made sure we owned up to it. We'll take care of business. This team is very strong about where we're going and what we're doing. Just because someone slips doesn't mean we're not on track.

"We're very disappointed those guys will not be able to play with us. It's kind of how it goes at times. I don't know that we can expect to be perfect. We'd like to be, but that isn't the case. You want guys to be on point, but sometimes you're going to be disappointed. It's not about what pops up, it's about how you deal with it and overcome it."
