Danny Kelly:Will Pete Carroll ever modernize his approach?

  • Exit Interview: Seattle Seahawks

    The Seahawks’ run to the divisional round of the playoffs was equally impressive and infuriating at times. Will Pete Carroll ever modernize his approach?


    What Went Right

    The Seahawks finished with their best regular-season record (11-5) since 2014 and booked a trip to the postseason for the seventh time in the past eight seasons. They beat the Eagles in the wild-card round―the team’s 10th postseason win under Pete Carroll―before falling to the Packers in a divisional-round tilt.

    While it was a disappointing playoff exit for the Seahawks, it did feel like this team overachieved relative to its talent and depth. Instead of the transitional season spent rebuilding its young, inexperienced defense that many expected, Seattle marched right back into the postseason; general manager John Schneider often states that the ultimate goal for Seattle’s braintrust is to produce “consistent championship-caliber football teams.” It’s hard not to be impressed with how reliably competitive the Seahawks are year after year.

    Interesting article. I'm not sure the headline accurately captures what Kelly is writing about. Kind of feels like his editor is trying to take advantage of the Pete 'behind the times' narrative that's floating around.

  • Hey Danny, you are a journalist. It ends there.

    The Seahawks are a professional football team. You report on them but that's the END of your contribution....Bye Danny Boy

  • There's literally NOTHING in this article that even approaches this tagline of "Will Pete Carroll ever Modernize his Approach."

    In fact, the only criticism of Pete in the entire article talks about his poor clock mismanagement. So unless that's the approach Danny's talking about, it's a terrible clickbate headline.

    It's not even a well written synopsis of the season. It reads like a college kid that forgot he had a report due.

    Bad article. Nothing to see here.

  • Sorry, haven't had time to read it. But I am listening to his interview on Bob, Dave and Moore, and I like what I hear. Which is not necessarily anti-Pete.

    I found this rather interesting from Team stats.

    Top 10 teams with most Passing Yards? Only 2 made the Playoffs, New England and KC.

    The Top 10 teams as far as Rushing? 7 made the Playoffs.

    The Top 10 teams with Passing Touchdowns? 4 made the Playoffs, with #4 being Seattle with 31 Passing Touchdowns.

    #1 Ravens with 37 passing touchdowns, and also #1 in Rushing Yards. (3296)

    #2 Saints with 36 Passing Touchdowns. Saints Rushing rank #16 with (1738)

    #3 Buccaneers with 33 Passing Touchdowns (30 INTs) Rushing rank #21 (1521)

    K#5 KC = 30 TDs Rushing Yards #23 (1569)

    Dallas = 30 TDs Rushing yards #5 (2153)

    Giants = 30 TDs Rushing yards #19 (1685)

    Titans = 29 TDs Rushing yards #3 (2223)

    Falcons = 29 TDs Rushing yards #30 (1361)

    Detroit = 28 TDs Rushing yards #21 (1649)

    Defensive stats that matter:

    7 out of the Top 10 leaders in PPG made the playoffs.


    Defensive stats that don't matter that much?

    Sacks:


    4 of the Top 10 made the playoffs. Saints (51), Vikings (48), 49ers (48), Patriots (47)

    Only 1 out of the 10 is still playing...

  • January 15, 2020 - Hour 3

    Danny Kelly from The Ringer joins the show to talk about how he thinks the Seahawks can modernize their offense while still being a run-first team, why Russell Wilson is the best QB in the NFL, what the team needs to do in the offseason, and more.


    Then, the guys discuss which Seahawks free agents they'd bring back for the 2020 season.

    We then find out What We Learned.

  • leading the team with four sacks.

    That statement right there is why they didn’t win when the offense sputtered. Russ took four sacks a game.

  • As far as "modernizing" the approach to the offense, there's certainly things Pete and Schotty can tweak scheme wise to accomplish this.

    RPO for one. Instead of an old school rigid approach to playcalling where Russell's taking traditional 3,5 or 7 step drops turning his back to the defense and/or rolling out and having to turn back into the defense (where there's usually a defender about to destroy him), install more of an RPO approach where Russell has more freedom to decide where to go with the ball...........and most importantly he's got his chest facing the defense the entire time.

    Russell's to the point in his career where Pete and Schotty SHOULD be trusting him more to run the offense, and RPO is a perfect fit for his style of quarterbacking. Options.
