  • Yes. I remember writing a critique of Bevel a while ago that went something like this.

    An offensive game plan starts with a series of scripted plays to identify a weakness in the opposing defense. When you find a weakness, you pick at it again, and again, and again, and again until the defense has to adjust to stop the bleeding. When they adjust, it will open a different weakness, and it is usually a weakness that is even bigger than the first.

    Bevel seemed to use the opening series to identify a weakness in the opposing defense. He would then put that weakness in his back pocket for later use, "when he really needed it." Most of the time, when he got to the point that he really needed it, and pulled it out of his back pocket, it was too late.

    Did Chip Kelly assume roster management duties for the Seahawks this year? I must have missed the announcement.

    Well Bevells scripted plays went from first snap to last play of the second quarter is another problem.

    Hopefully this "other 30%" consists of some short route, quick blitz beater, and hot route/ dump off concepts.

    Literally everything in the offense, from the running game to the long developing routes, suffered from opposing defenses never having to worry about these types of attacks. Except for that one, brief, record setting period of time, in 2015, where Bevel pulled his head out of Cable's :141847_bnono: and called a balanced, rapid-fire attack



    We just drafted a running back who's got Marshall Faulk level receiving ability, so talk about dump off passes, that right there will be a MAJOR asset.

    Of course some fans just want to whine about him not being a world class blocker right out of the gate. :P

    I mean, pass blocking is SUPER important on third down for RBs. Warren Sharp put out some stats showing that we were deadly efficient throwing to RBs not on third down, but first and second, yet we did it around 19 times or some crazy small number last season.

    I'd like to see that added to the game plan. For whatever reason it wasn't emphasised enough with Bev and Cable.

    How exactly are those quick passes going to go?


    Riiiiight. So New Orleans must struggle with quick passes as well?



    Weeeelll. NO uses there rb’s to bail out Drew Brees. Also other than height DB and RW are not that similar as QB’s.

    Also NO has Sean Payton. So there’s that.


    Agree with all your points. Doesn't address your original post which implied we can't do quick passes because our interior line is too tall?

  • Bevell could not get a screen play set up that didn't have Bubble attached to it.

    Having a line that can act like they are pass blocking and then drop the block and go form a wall for our running back releasing into the flat for a dump off didn't happen, when tried it was a mess.

    I believe you are ignoring a major point from the article. The previous system functioned as Pete wanted to. Pete wanted yes men. It’s Pete that must change here.


    Yup, it was Pete who created the two-headed CaBevell monster.
    Little did he realize what he was modeling this creation after.

  • Another thing I would LOVE to see this team do more of is the screen passes. So many teams make that a huge part of their offense. Change it up a little, let a RB get out there in space and do his thing.

  • Reflecting on the reality of limited practice time as mandated by the CBA ......

    The explanation I recall, from last year, was that it takes less practice time to develop bubble screens. Screen plays by linemen take a lot more time to perfect and require a reasonable continuity of personnel. The CBA (collective bargaining agreement) places strict limits on practice time. So if time is going to be carved out to practice screen plays along the lines of what .... say the Packers like to do, something else has to give. Given that Pete Carroll has set aside significant practice time for Russell Wilson directed improvisation and scramble drills, that could potentially be a feature of the offense that might suffer a bit while creating room for linemen to practice screens.

    Just an observation. Food for thought and speculation while we await our first glimpse of Schottenheimer's impact on the 2018 offense.

  • There is truth to screen passes taking time to perfect. I heard Holmgren on that 2 years ago saying the exact same thing. Teams have to commit more time than many are willing to give and that is why lazy coaches like Bevell never used it much. Even though when he did it often poped for good yardage. :roll:

    Well having OTA's, and a whole summer is plenty of time to sync up screen plays, colleges do it, high school teams do it, you have to practice them, continuity also matter so timing works with your lineman. There is the big part of the issue, a guy playing LT one year and Guard the next and RT the next there is no continuity, timing is important, and you need to be able to time your release and all.

    #Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett says new coaches did a good job "giving us the playbook in a specific order" that helped players understand the system quickly. "I think we were farther along than we probably thought we would be in learning the new playbook.”
