I'm curious. Jody Allen seems to have taken a really passive ownership role in the team. What would it take for Carroll to get fired?
Pete Carroll has bought a lot of goodwill with the ownership and the city of Seattle with his early success. That being said, since those Super Bowl runs all has not been right in paradise. Realistically he should have only two wins in the playoffs since 2015. Those wins were against a Matt Stafford playing on a sprained ankle, with a messed up throwing hand and a 40 year old McCown that was playing injured at the end of the game. Even still he was giving the Seahawks a run for their money. We have no quality wins since that time period.
Within the same time period Shanahan, McCarthy, Pederson, Arians, Belichick, McVay, LaFleur, Payton, Reid, Tomlin, Kubiak, Quinn, Ron Rivera, Vrabel, and Marrone all have better win percentages in the playoffs and just as many wins as Pete Carroll since 2020. Carroll is building a reputation as a guy that cannot get it done in the playoffs any longer. The fact that we really only have three wins (really should be two) within the span of 6 years with one of the better QB's in the league is alarming. Especially considering that many of these guys are jokes. 15 coaches, or close to half the league has fared better in the playoffs within the last 6 years. Within this time the Seahawks held teams were ranked number one by PFF's DVOA standards. We're under performing out talent levels in the post season.
In 2017 Carroll lost control of the team. He had to offload a lot of our star players, or just let them go. He purged the coaching staff and rebooted. In just 3 years we're back at the same place we were then. Players such as DK Metcalf, and Wilson questioning the offense, Wilson potentially trying to get out of Seattle if changes aren't made. According to Cowherd he knows of one more player that is questioning Seattle's offense, and Carroll's direction there.
Question being, what is the breaking point for Jody Allen and Seahawks management? Does it have to be a 4 win season, or does Wilson forcing his way out of Seattle, or another loss in the playoffs right away seal his fate? What is the threshold here.
