Excellent news. The offense was carrying the team for the last half of the season, so it's good to see Bevell stay. If we were going to keep one coordinator, definitely prefer to keep Bevell.

Sure, Wilson made Bevell and not the other way around, but I'm fine with that. At the end of the day Bevell may not be the greatest OC in the game, but he fits Wilson as well as anyone would. If Andy Reid or Jon Gruden came in to run our offense, I don't think it would be a whole lot better, simply because Wilson and Bevell seem to have developed chemistry working together.


Very well said Kearly, the chemistry that Bevell and Russell have developed really helped this offense grow as the year went along.

Pleeeease Bevell, grow a pair in the first half of games in 2013! You're clearly capable of it as evidenced by your 2nd-half play-calling.

Outstanding news! This is the first time we've had the same QB/OC paring in how many years now?

why is that considered a bad call, I want to know? Afterall that play worked like clockwork throughout the season. We ran it maybe a half dozen times and EVERY TIME it got a first down in the regular season. So why exactly was it a bad call? Because it didn't work? If that's the only argument than it's very weak indeed.

I don't know if you caught this but on the 3rd and 1 A) PC was trying to call a timeout. 2) it was reported that the Seahawks OL missed a check at the LOS on that play, because of the noise. Those missed details probably cost us the 1st down.

Well right at the end of the season I do recall Wilson saying he liked Bevell and the chemistry they had been developing.

see it as you will

Simply because we should have gone for the points. We should have gone for momentum. We blew it and lost by a field goal. Not too hard to understand.

Bevell..... The greatest 2nd half playoff coach in the league. Sorry it's still just to raw for me. I will like him next year when we are 8-0.

This bodes well for continued growth of #3 for sure! Was iistening to Golden Tate on the radio today and he was all about working with the OC and Wilson off season!

I am very happy about this. I want to keep the rhythm we had going with the offense at the end of the season.

Wilson even said on Brock and Salk today that he wanted to keep learning from Bevell in the offseason.

Shit. Busy day!

This is great news. Bevel has been maturing very nicely as a playcaller since we brought him in last year. Wasn't too sure about all the vanilla last year and early this year, but I don't think i had a single complaint about anything the did in the second half of this past season. The consistency with this OC will be good for Rusty too.

I love the way this team operates.

Great move. Questionable play calls or not, it takes a real OC to adapt to a unique QB like Wilson. Get him some more weapons and let's see what Bevell can do.

Love the move. I have been a big Bevell supporter.

I think he has designed a passing game that has got the most out of the receiving crew that is fairly average and *gasp* Russell Wilson. He never asked him to do too much and designed an entire offense around his strengths rather than trying to pigeon-hole him into a system. He certainly never ran the read-option extensively before this year so kudos to him for being able to install it and make it work with a high level of efficiency.

I am excited to see some continuity on the offensive side of the ball as that became out strength down the stretch.

I admit I've been quick to yell 'WTF?!' at some plays, but I also admit I have no idea what I'm talking about and I'm usually just lashing out emotionally when I yell at Bevell through the TV. That said, I am thrilled that DB and RW & Co. can get started immediately after Russell's honeymoon and develop the world-class offense that everyone knows Wilson is capable of running. Great news!

Well, let me be the first to say that this sucks.

I am not a supporter of Bevell at all and was excited to the idea of him going elsewhere.

Oh well, I will still be heard from miles around rooting for the Seahawks next season during the good or bad!!!

Yeah, he's slowly catching on. Turn Wilson loose and we win games. The smart thing for him to do now is develop more bread and butter plays that compliment Wilson's unique skill set.

Awesome move! I think Bevell does a great job of designing plays that take advantage of what our receivers do well. I get the feeling that there is a lot more to this playbook than we have seen so far. As the players and OC continue to grow together, I expect this to be a very consistent and productive offense thats also going to make you say "wow" 2 or 3 times a game!

GO HAWKS!

Unlike some others on here, I actually like Bevell's playcalling so I'm glad he's staying.

I think there are a couple possibilities why. The most likely one being that Pete might not have felt Bradley had much left to learn in his system and he was ready to strike out on his own, as it were.

Or they just really wanted to bring in Quinn.

I'm really glad to see this. I think, given that we're going to have at least one drafted receiver this year, Bevell's going to be a good choice for integrating the rook into our system. I can only hope it's someone like DeAndre Hopkins.

Exactly. If anyone blames Bevell for the call to go for it on 4th and 1, they don't know how the team works.

Blame him for the playcall, sure, but not the call to go for it. (even though the playcall itself was fine too. That same play has worked every time this year and we have run it multiple times).

That's kind of a problem too though, if we've run it multiple times and it's been successful don't you think a team as good as ATL would notice and prepare for it?

They called the perfect defense for that situation.

You think all the other teams hadn't prepared for it as well? Sometimes there are plays that are successful even when the other team knows it is coming. If you execute correctly, there is no way to stop it from getting 1 or 2 yards.

The Hawks just did not execute on that play. They let a blitzer come right through the running lane.

PC said many times it was him that kept the leash on Wilson. Bevell answers to PC.


Not only do I know this, but I was pretty adamant about it when it happened. Pete is the head coach and should take responsibility, as it is he who makes the final call on something like that. Of course if Pete is the kind of person and coach I believe him to be, he doesn't just make these decisions arbitrarily. He's going to listen to the input of the position coaches and coordinators. My point being that pete rightfully owned the decision, but that doesn't mean it wasn't partially Bevell, Cable or any of the other coaches inputs that didn't help bring him to that decision.

Still, I like Bevell overall more tha I've disliked him, and I think we made a ton of positive strides last season from game 1 through game 18. This alone says we should try to remain consistent in our coaching philosophy here and to do that we should remain consistent with the coaches as well.

All in all, keeping Bevell, IMO is much more important than keeping Bradley. I think our team will continue to grow under the current staff.

If Russell Wilson wasn't our QB and Matt Flynn didn't have a spectacular season, then this move would probably piss most people off.

Basically you're saying if our offense sucked we'd blame the coordinator.....surprise surprise. kinda like when a team fails to achieve it's goals they blame the coach and/or gm. This is kind of how the system works. Do a good job, keep your job. Get crappy results, lose your job.

You think all the other teams hadn't prepared for it as well? Sometimes there are plays that are successful even when the other team knows it is coming. If you execute correctly, there is no way to stop it from getting 1 or 2 yards.

The Hawks just did not execute on that play. They let a blitzer come right through the running lane.


Pete said the play failed because it was so loud, they missed an 'alert.' Whatever that is...

Since Giacomini and McQuistan both blocked the same guy, I'm guessing the "alert" was that there was going to be someone coming in unblocked. These protection calls are made at the line of scrimmage and in noisy stadiums they will use hand signals if it gets too loud. I'm just guessing that what pete means is that there was an alert called out pre-snap, but it wasn't heard, and nobody blocked the guy. If we'd gotten a blocker on that guy, we very well may have made that yard. That is basically why it broke down.

From what I heard, Wilson called a certain protection and the linemen didn't hear him. I think the announcers also said something about it and that's why they started using hand signals more after that.

I think Bevell deserves a lot of credit. Most teams that run read-option in the NFL commit to it fairly strictly (SF with Kaepernick, Carolina, Washington, etc), and the offenses they run are very obviously dumbed down. Late in the season I thought Bevell did an awesome job of mixing read option with a traditional offense. The result was a whole lot of games over 400 or even 500 total yards. People talk about playcalling/predictability but that is just one aspect of what an OC brings to a team. How that OC fits the existing talent is what is most important, and Bevell fits it perfectly. And for the record, I think Bevell's playcalling is just fine. Most of the crying over his playcalling comes in brutal losses where the offense did it's job and the defense didn't, and MMQB'ing takes over.

Sure, Wilson made Bevell and not the other way around, but I'm fine with that. At the end of the day Bevell may not be the greatest OC in the game, but he fits Wilson as well as anyone would. If Andy Reid or Jon Gruden came in to run our offense, I don't think it would be a whole lot better, simply because Wilson and Bevell seem to have developed chemistry working together.


Plus One. I love Bevell and think he is very creative. IMHO, he is one of the best OCs in the league and our offense will demonstrate that belief next year when it ranks in the top 10. :th2thumbs:

Even with our "slow start" we were #9 in scoring in offense this year. I think if we continue at the rate we finished the season (which to me is more telling than our start), we should be in the top 5 at the very least next season.

Yes the NFL likes to use the yards per game to measure the stats, but I think that scoring is the most important part of both offense and defensive stats.

Good. We need continuity, especially for RW


Agreed, continuity will be very important for Wilson as he grows. Not happy we lost Bradley...but sooner or later we where going to lose both of them....i sure hope Quinn is better at play calling when there is 30 seconds left on the clock and the win is in danger.

Yards means your going the full length of the field on every possession, points and effciantcy is better, if we get what we want the defense should provide turnovers and good field position, shorter drives more points.

According to ESPN Bevell received a contract extension and a raise. He accepted and withdrew from the Arizona coaching race.

IMHO he is lucky to have a job here, his playcalling is craptastic at best. Him getting a raise is money NOT well spent. I think Bradley was the worst of the 2, but Bevell was a real close 2nd.

I agree, Wilson made Bevell. I feel like Bevell was slow to adjust in both playoff games, trying to stick with his brainiac game plan when in the end the solution was to press the "Easy" button and just hand it to Russell and say do your thing RW. That pisses me off. I also felt like by trying to spare RW from pressure early in the season they ended up putting him in pressure-PACKED situations where 4th quarter heroics was needed, time after time, starting with the very first game of the season. But I get they were trying to bring RW along slowly, I get that they couldn't bring themselves to believe in Russell's godliness quite so early, and I get that it was as much Pete as Bevell.

For those saying this is good because RW likes him, RW only spouts team-first sentiments so how would we know what Russell really thinks? And everyone here KNOWS Russell would be just fine no matter who was calling the plays, as long as when things didn't work out they turned it over to the Russell magic show and let him do his thing.

But if Russ doesn't have to learn a new playbook that's more time he can spend studying opposing defenses or working hard on other aspects, so I do buy the continuity aspect of it. I don't think Bevell is a make-or-break decision for this team, but I like that we kept him. I do have to say I agree with those who say that of all the read-option offenses, Bevell did the best job integrating it in such a fashion as to make it only a small part of a "real" NFL offense, but a part that could be leaned on heavily in crunch time to great effect. That's deserving of some praise. And his playcalling overall did get much better.

If I don't see a heaping helping of Zach Miller, throws to Turbin out of the backfield, targeting Rice more, and in general a more Russell-focused offense from the very beginning next year I'm going to take back all the nice things I said about Bevell though and call for his head.

Well Bevell is one part, Pete being a defensive guy gets forgotton in this but wasn't it him that was the one studing the offense of Washington and brought in the read option to be a compliment here as well.

I agree Chris that Pete may have been the idea man on the read option, but my guess is the particulars of integrating the read option were given to Bevell to handle, and he did a good job with those details.
