  • Dang it. Its him and the CFL coach. I was hoping Russ would have the same OC for a while.

  • Let him go, and send Trestman down from Canada to Seattle...he already has familiarity with Wilson, plus I love his offensive mind.

  • While changing OCs is not the best of situations, we have a QB that can handle change well.

  • Bad news. I really wanted the continuity. Wilson has said he'd rather have it too. Not that he can't adjust, but he's going to have to adjust some to new faces, new calls, stuff that could have remained the same and allowed him to work on new stuff.

    Of course, whoever we hire had better be ready to work. Wilson's going to show up on his doorstep, game tape and notes in hand, at 5:00 AM the morning after we hire him.

  • he can go. Never liked his playcalling.

    and no, I don't give him credit 'for the development of Wilson'. Wilson developed Wilson.

    Best he get a new job now, while teams are willing to give him credit for that - it is the best opportunity he will have.

  • Do people just forget what happened last year. I would say DB's head was being called for when TJack was here and things were not going so well.

    I think Russel made Bevelle more than Bevelle made Russel. Of course we wouldn't have gotten to where we were last Sunday without the duo.

    Not to sure what the Bears are thinking.

  • Guys like Bevell and Bradley are bound to be NFL Head Coaches with the success the offense and defense will continue to have. Better to get it out of the way now and find guys who will hold down the role for a good amount of time. I honestly think it'd be a blessing in disguise if they both left this offseason. It's good for them and good for the organization. They get a chance to realize the ultimate dream of their lives and future prospective coaches will know that coming to Seattle will be an excellent career move.

    If Bevell does end up in Chicago, I'd definitely prefer Trestman. I was beating the Hue Jackson drum for a while, but Trestman would be the better option in my mind. Trestman is a big fan of Hustle Wilson and if there's a QB in the league that can handle a new coordinator it's Wilson. He just devours playbooks.

    What makes you think RW will waste a whole day? :D

    .


    There was an interview out there with a guy whos opinion should carry more weight. RW disagrees with the above statement.

    I am not to fond of the playcalling either especially things like straight up the middle on 3rd and 1 followed by straight up the middle on 4th and 1........but we know what we have and sometimes that is better than what you get.......

  • The first half of the Atlanta game told me Bevell isn't what Wilson or the Seahawks need.
    I hope he goes and we find a coach that calls plays to our strengths (see 49'rs) .

    Our players with room for criticism did enough to win however the two coordinators didn't.
    Hoping they both go.

    As funny as this, with anyone else this would be an exaggeration.

    And I think, its probably not even going far enough. I sure Pete is getting texts right now explaining, in detail, who it is out there worthy of taking Bevell's spot if he goes. Meanwhile he is breaking down draft prospects for John Schneider and organizing unofficial practices to start after his honeymoon.

    I even heard he wants to book voice lessons for the 12th Man to make sure they their voices remain strong and limit cases of laryngitis in the greater Seattle area.

    Which apparently didn't hurt Mike McCoy.

    (Granted he did a pretty great job of compensating for Tebow at QB.)

    Huh?

    In this case, "he" = Pete... not Bevell... as in... Pete was holding the offense back.

  • Bevell was hot and cold in his playcalling.. seemed to be able to adjust well, but he sometimes waited too long to make the adjustments, case in point last sunday...

    so i think he's a good OC, but it does not ruin my day the he may not be here next season...

    plus i think RW can adjust to anyone and any style of offense that utilized his strengths...

    Gruden is already the OC for the Bengals so I wouldn't hold your breath. Lateral coaching moves rarely happen in the NFL, especially for a guy whose name is being thrown around for head coaching jobs.

    From what I've heard here on sports radio in Chicago, it sounds like Trestman is the front runner for the Bears' job.

  • I don't buy the argument that Russell wants him back. What's Russell going to say? When has Russ ever done anything but mouth the company, team-first line?
    Russell may have a preference one way or another but I don't think it's a blip on his radar if he has a new OC next year. He learned a whole new playbook as a rook well enough to lead his team to multiple comebacks (until they were destroyed by the defense in the last minute).

  • Sando speculates if Bevell left to AZ, that we may hire Whisenhunt to take over as OC. He has a history with Pete.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcwest/post/_/ ... -cardinals

    Would basically be an OC for HC swap.

  • The Cardinals getting Darrell Bevell would be a dream-come-true for the Seahawks (for the next YEAR anyway).

    This guy sucks. Hands-down.

    The ONLY reason he looks good (right now),.........

    ......is because of Mr. Wilson.
