Wilson was not being used well. It looked for all the world that he would have done better under an offensive coach, and we were already losing defensive effectiveness. Betting on Wilson was a reasonable risk and betting on Wilson would have meant moving away from Pete.
This year somewhat indicated that the 'Let Wilson carry the team like Aaron Rodgers did" approach was not going to work. He had the chance instead of better results, they got worse.
But pretending that there was not a reasonable hint that this team would be better focusing more on what Wilson did well and leveraging it? That isn't all honest.
There were plenty of reasons that looking at another coach was a reasonable gamble, because back then,Pete was not open to giving Wilson the keys to this team. In hindsight, maybe Pete was right - but last January betting on Wilson vs betting on Pete was not an insane stance.
If the Seahawks would have listened to you the whole organization would have been turned upside down... the Hawks would have not made the playoffs let alone beat the Rams...
You don't have a leg to stand on... Not one of your arguments carry any credibility... and before you start talking about how I'm overly optimistic and don't know what I'm talking about let me remind you I'm probably the only person on the board that said when the Seahawk D was the very worst in the league that they would turn it around and be one of the best in the league and almost everybody thought I was crazy... How crazy am I now?
Dude you're clearly a very intelligent person and the premise that the Seahawks will lose in the playoffs is a very easy general position to take. Not only does it apply to the Seahawks but it applies to every team in the NFL.. The NFL is the most competitive organization in the world... the odds of a team winning the SB are far more than a team losing in the playoffs... So to take the position that the Seahawks will lose in the playoffs you're riding the odds... and that's not brilliant IMO...
