He's given us the best stretch of football in the history of this franchise. People are acting like he can't win without Russ. I mean this without any disrespect to Russ, but we won the SB well before he was in HoF form. Russ in no way carried Pete to that SB. We have steadily been winning more games each of the last four seasons: 9, 10, 11, and then 12 this year. Just because we haven't had the post season results doesn't mean it's time to get rid of Pete.
Anyway, whether people like it or not I am afraid they will have to get used to Pete for at least another year. Jody Allen is not going to get rid of him and he basically runs the organization at this point.
I most certainly do not dislike Pete; there is a lot of things that he does that get's ignored or glossed over, things like going after, and bringing in Marshawn Lynch, to which turned out to be a great help to Wilson's game.
Pete isn't stupid, nor does he dislike Russ, he DOES KNOW that without a decent/good/great Run game, it's all dumped right back on his QB's lap, hence, the REASON for his Push for yet another & a more creative O.C. Third one obtained FOR Russell Wilson.
All this crap about them being Yes Men is just that...CRAP.
There's no doubt that we need to upgrade the O-Line, none whatsoever, but isn't Solari still working with some of Cable's players?, didn't they go after Brown?, Lewis?, & a couple other standouts?
Too many are calling out Pete, without having any of the moxie, or the credentials to do so.
John needs to get way more creative, & come up with a bunch of money (maybe out his arse) to find some all Pro road graders who can block for the run game AND also Pass Protect.
