Time to protest Bevell/Cable!!!!!
Mon Sep 11, 2017 5:08 pm
  • I know this may be a little crazy but does anyone think that fans (us) would ever consider doing some form of a protest of the ineptitude of Bevell/Cable etc... Whether it's banners at the game or as they did once in NY fly a plane over Jets practice with a banner saying "Fire Idzik". I don't know about anyone else here but I'm fed up with what has gone on with the offensive ineptness with Bevell/Cable and the line the last few years.

    Anyone else in because....

    I'm in!!!!

  • As long as we keep making the playoffs, they will continue to hang on by the skin of their nuts. It would take the players to revolt IMO, and that didn't work out too well for Sherman.

    Yea well if the D still keeps balling out, and the O keeps crapping the bed, then I think there might be a full revolt, and that is not what anyone would want.

    Or maybe the players have no qualms with the coaches because they understand that the plan will work if executed properly.

  • If you 're watching this and you're not frustrated, I don't understand you. I get so mad watching these games because you see what works, when it works, and usually it's too late. The Carolina playoff game a few years back was the last straw for me. We came out cute, got destroyed, and then we just balled out. Put four more minutes on that clock and we win that game, I have no doubt. PLAY LIKE THAT FROM THE START, THEN SIT if you must. Don't be fine punting just because we're tied 0-0. It's maddening.

    I have a plan to win the lottery. You go buy the winning ticket, and we will split the winnings 70/30 (me 70, after all it's my plan)

    This plan will work perfectly if executed correctly. :2thumbs:

  • What if the 12s sent letters directly to the boss man (Paul Allen) listing our concerns. If he got enough from his own fan base HE may start to take notice. At this point, I believe only Paul would truly demand that changes occur sooner rather than later.

    That argument could also be made for the 0-16 Lions.....on paper everything will work to perfection....when in reality it's nothing more than horse manure. Which exactly what the offensive plan is for the Seahawks

    When we match the record of the 0-16 Lions, get back to me and I might look at your claims as being credible. But right now, the wagon's not broken. It's just getting rolling.

    Exactly.
    Someone gets my point with the lottery proposal.
    Any plan can work if "executed properly". But if you have no shot at executing it because it is a piss poor plan, then you are peeing in the wind.

  • We lost a single road game at Lambeau by 8 points with a couple of significant calls that went against us. If you need some outside perspective about spoiled fan bases just read what many Patriot fans are saying this week about Tom Brady. I don't think Hawks fans are that bad yet but it's getting close.

    Fans are the worst at judging their own team. Pats fans feel every year they get knocked out of the playoffs is a mark of failure as a franchise. To everyone else, of course, the Pats are a legit, respectable, successful contender and everyone in the nation knows it.

    It's the same with us. You could also argue that we've had to contend in a much harder division than the Patriots ever have.

    The attitude in this post is whats wrong with Seattle. It doesn't matter how much they lost by, they lost. What's more important is the way they lost. Zero competence on the OLine. With reference to NE, that attitude has brought them 5 SB trophys. The fanbase and the media call out the organization at first sight of crap play. In Seattle, the media is worried about losing their media passes and thus snowflakes every problem. Calling crap, crap is not a sign of a spoiled fanbase.

    There isn't a thing in that paragraph that you can prove.

    We had embarrassing games in 2013, too. People watching the Carolina opener and the Houston game (both of which we won) were still predicting the OL would eventually end the season.

    It was Week 1, on the road, against a defense that practically everyone severely underestimated.

  • Start boycotting the home games, don't go, stop buying their merchandise.
    Nothing gets the attention of ownership like a hit to their wallet.
    It's the only weapon a disgruntled fan base has.
    But, we all know that won't happen...
    Face it, it's not looking like anyone is being held responsible for the same problems year after year.
    The only way anything changes is when Pete is gone, or they get better position coaches.
    The latter should of happened this off season, the former may be sooner than expected!

    :sarcasm_off:

    ... and that would be ... Sherm? In all actuality, though, he wasn't actually complaining about a coach. He was complaining about passing on the 1. Or a zone scheme that was missed on defense, resulting in a surrendered touchdown. See the difference? He was talking about in-the-moment-of-the-game particulars.
    This always seems to be missed as the pack mentality likes to feed their own narrative.

    I think this idea that you need to be "tough" on the team to keep them honest is childish and overly self important. Lack of effort is not the problem with this team, and they're not going to be playing any harder vs. the 49ers because they want to avoid ludakrishna saying something negative about them on an internet forum. There's nothing laudable about impotent venting.

    Easily my least favorite sports old wives fable and I doubt you actually believe it. It is common to have bad outcomes from good decisions and good outcomes from bad decisions. The uncertainty in life and the NFL is what makes them interesting. When you decide to only judge things based on outcomes you are throwing away nearly all of the information at your disposal. If we won with a poor showing from the OL would you say it only matters that we won?

    Not with Week 1 as your only sample size, no, not legitimately. Players develop.

    I'm not high on Rees developing, but he's an injury replacement. Cable didn't have him starting in the original lineup. Tough luck there.

    Now Bevell gets the maximum out of every player?

    Is Jimmy Graham considered a player?

    Is 5 carries for 3 yards all Lacy has to give??

  • That's exactly what Doug said.

    Jimmy was targeted 7 times Sunday, twice in the end zone. He had an off game, but he'll rebound.

    I think they pulled the plug on Lacy early and gave Carson center stage. But you saw it, the run game just couldn't develop with our inconsistent line play.

    And although this might sound equally crazy, perhaps a trade of teams would disarm local discontent. How about a trade of the Seahawks to Cleveland in exchange for a Browns to Seattle exchange. I would think that would make a lot of Cleveland fans ecstatic.

    Cleveland, Green Bay, Seattle, wherever ...... doesn't matter any more where the Seahawks play .... "I'M IN"

    Jimmy was targeted 7 times Sunday, twice in the end zone. He had an off game, but he'll rebound.

    I think they pulled the plug on Lacy early and gave Carson center stage. But you saw it, the run game just couldn't develop with our inconsistent line play.


    Doesn't matter Doug said it. If it is a clear load of crap which is obvious to 99.99% of everyone watching....then you need to understand you are being fed a load of garbage before wondering why you have indigestion.

  • Pats fans whining about losing one game are doing exactly that. Hawks fans fed up with the same immobile offense have the right after last year, to have expected change this time around. The complaints are not only because we lost to the Packers in Green Bay, they are because of the pattern. I'm willing to wait it out, but there's no reason we should not be up by three scores on the Niners at half time on Sunday. If we are under 10 points, expect people to be pissed. I will be one. I'll never boycott the team, but I will certainly wish I could and understand those who do. It's fricking hard to watch, yo.

    Of course that is the reason why Earl was grumbling about the playing time disparity between the O and the D after the GB game. :roll:

    I appreciate your support for the O coaches though it's laudable notwithstanding the diminishing returns from the O.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

    That is not true. Earl was not grumbling about that at all. He said "it's been this way for 8 years" as to not give the defense any excuses, and as to call the defense to step up and be even better. Not as a complaint about the offense. That's why it was reported that afterwards in the locker room he was seen explaining exactly that to Michael Bennett (who was reportedly complaining about being on the field too much).

    Earl gets it... I'm not saying the offense should completely suck like they did most of last Sunday but the defense is the unit that is Paid to be the Elite unit. Earl, Sherm, Kam, Bennett, Bobby, etc, etc. Those guys are paid to be the unit that carries this team.

    Would you still be pissed if we had won 6-3 on Sunday? I realize that for many that feels worse than a high scoring game because offenses are the popular units and the expectation is that good NFL teams will score lots of points. We do have a 70% winning percentage with RW in Pete's very conservative system however.

    Pete talked about the decision to stay conservative vs. opening things up in his Monday presser. He's very aware of the pros and cons, and it absolutely matters that we could have won that game on Sunday with our conservative game plan if very minor things had gone differently. I doubt he regrets his choice either given that one of the pivotal swings in the game was the fumble on the 5 that set them up for an easy TD.

    This is wrong. The team needs to have an offense that gets FIRST DOWNS, the rest will follow. If the Seahawks could have had a few more drives with at least 2 first downs then the game is completely different. The defense would still be aggressive because they would be rested and not playing 2/3 of the game. The Seahawks offense was on the field for 48 plays that is dysfunction for even Woody Hayes "3 yards and a cloud of dust" So no matter how conservative your offensive philosophy is you still need first downs. First downs are the life blood of a ball control offense and this team can't even do that.

    Problem is I am the OP and I'm from NY where (and don't get pissed WA residents) they would NEVER stand for the terrible decisions by Bevell and crew without displaying public displeasure, MEDIA INCLUDED. I cannot even fathom Bevel having to answer to the NY media for his ridiculous calls.

    Look if the people in the Seattle area are fed up with Bevell/Cable as much as they say they are then for sake, voice your opinion in a public domain like the stadium, large billboard or the sky.

    If that's true, why hasn't there been an uprising from the citizens over the Jets? I've never heard of any. The hole in your theory and what the rest of the country would scoff at is that the Hawks are about the winningest and most successful franchise in the NFC this decade. Fans from most other teams would look at such an entitled display with bewilderment.

    Sorry but if you read the very first post on this topic you would have seen that the JETS fans hired a plane to fly over their practice with a banner that said "Fire Idzik". BTW the JETS owner was standing next to him as it flew over. Not long after he was gone. Giants fans did the something similar back I believe in the early 70's.

    Regarding your theory of how the Hawks have won so much, I agree that as a team they have won a lot of games but most would agree it's despite what the offense has contributed not because of what they have contributed.

    The most telling reminder of how bad Bevell and Csble/the OL is, is by hearing one national announcer after another call out how bewildered they are with multiple play calls on O and the incredibly bad play by the line.

    The proof is in front of all of our eyes and it's been there for 3 years.

    I would rather not wait until Russ is in traction to make changes if you couldn't see there were massive issues with oline I don't even know what to say.

    The winning ways have been helped along by the offense too. It would be kind of foolish to think otherwise.

    Maybe I remember that airplane business. Didn't it later crash?

    And for the record, I've heard as many announcers giving props to the Hawks, their offense and Bevell on numerous occasions. And I'd expect to hear it again real soon.

    The attitude in this post is whats wrong with Seattle. It doesn't matter how much they lost by, they lost. What's more important is the way they lost. Zero competence on the OLine. With reference to NE, that attitude has brought them 5 SB trophys. The fanbase and the media call out the organization at first sight of crap play. In Seattle, the media is worried about losing their media passes and thus snowflakes every problem. Calling crap, crap is not a sign of a spoiled fanbase.


    Couldn't agree more with this.

    It's incredible to me that this garbage from the offense is met with such little resistance from the fanbase and local media.
