The coach picked the GM? That seems backwards... can't believe I never knew that
While the Seahawks have a general manager in John Schneider, he serves mainly in an advisory role to Carroll, who has the final say in football matters. In fact, Schneider was actually hired by Carroll--a rare case of the head coach hiring the general manager. He is one of four current NFL coaches who also have the title or powers of general manager, along with the Patriots' Bill Belichick, Washington Redskins' Mike Shanahan and Kansas City Chiefs Andy Reid.

Most people dont realize that the ranger islanders rivalry is the only true rilvary in ny because unlike most of the other sports they are in the same division. I understand what your talking about but you can't compare the atmosphere. First of all I was at quest for the NFCC and nothing was crazier then that and I've been at many ranger islanders games and 2 yankees clinching World Series games
You also can't compare the two because when your at quest the whole stadium is rooting for the seahawks and at the coliseum the fan base is split in half. Now I've been an islanders fan since 1976 and i hate to say it but our fan base sucks unless the rangers are in town or its a playoffs game.
I was talking to a rangers fan last night, he laughed when I said I was an islanders fan. I said nice organization you have. Had a puzzled look on his face. I said its the job of an organization to win the cup. I said u won 3 cups when there was only 6 teams in the league. And have only won 1 cup in the last 73 yrs.
With one of the highest pay rolls every yr I think your organization sucks. His come back was potvin sucks.
I said do you know why they chant that, he, like most other ranger fans have no clue.

That said, I look at the moves that have helped the team the most, and with the exception of Wilson and just a handful of others, all the biggest and best moves to help this team originated from Pete Carroll. The assistant coaching hires, the Pac-12 connections to Browner, Sherman, Lynch, and Harvin (unsuccessfully recruited for USC), drafting for very specific types of players in the draft, etc. We aren't drafting for those ultra specific and unique player types because of JS.
John Schneider is a terrific assistant, you could not ask for a better one, but he's the assistant. Pete's the architect. JS is a hard worker, but he's not a transformative visionary like Pete. I would rather have 10 years of Pete than 20 years of JS, despite the fact that JS is amazing at his job.
You look at SF, and they had a ho-hum front office for ages, then Jim Harbaugh comes in, takes a group of players that had won 5-7 games for most of a decade, and makes them instant SB contenders. Is anyone going to tell me that Baalke and his predecessor had as much to do with that as Harbaugh did? Clearly, without Harbaugh, the 49ers are still a joke of a team.
Further, you look at the top GMs in the league and you pretty much always see top 5 coaches working for them. Ozzie Newsome might be the very best, and he has John Harbaugh. Ted Thompson's in the discussion. He has Mike McCarthy. Mickey Loomis is up there. He's got Sean Payton.
