ESPN-Seahawks DC Ken Norton JR on the HOT seat this season

    Who's on the hot seat? DC Ken Norton Jr.

    The NFL's coronavirus protocols are working -- so far: Four things we learned this week
    Why his seat is warm: The Seahawks had one of their worst defensive seasons of the Pete Carroll era in 2019, continuing their regression. They were 18th in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA rankings last season and 14th in Norton's first season as coordinator after finishing fourth, fifth and 13th in three seasons under his predecessor, Kris Richard. The Seahawks beefed up their secondary with Jamal Adams and Quinton Dunbar and added to their loaded linebacker corps with first-round pick Jordyn Brooks. Even with a questionable pass rush, the Seahawks have enough talent to reverse their downward trend in 2020. Barring an injury catastrophe, Norton -- and Carroll -- won't have any excuses if they don't. -- Brady Henderson

  • As he should be. Anything less than a top 15 defense than he we should look to make a change

  • If the Seahawks defense doesn’t perform well, then we can hope the Falcons struggle. They may part ways with Quinn, if so, then Quinn should replace Norton Jr as Seahawk DC. The defense struggled once Dan Quinn left.

  • Will believe it when I see it.

    Carroll is known to be loyal. He is going to err on the side of giving extra chances vs the alternative.

    Short of collosal & visible collapses, repeatedly and regularly, he will not fire Norton.

    Defense struggled once it got old and stars started to believe their headlines. Not sure the DC was the biggest reason for the decline of the LOB. Loss of talent/motivation seemed a bigger issue.
