Nervous or Excited about the Future?
Wed Jan 10, 2018 4:11 pm
  • I believe change is necessary. But I guess I'm not nearly as excited as some here. More like cautiously optimistic

    Bevell and Cable needed to go. At the same time, we knew what we were getting from them, and they have brought us some relative success in the past. No team wins a Super Bowl with just a great defense and running back. Our coaches played a big role in bringing us a championship and for that, I'm grateful.

    So what about everyone else? Are you nervous about the future hires and how it pans out? Or, do you believe Cable and Bevell were so bad we're virtually guaranteed to see improvement? With all the talk of this being the "End of an era" by media pundits, I just wonder if this is the beginning of a great new era or a downward slide

  • I'm both. I don't think either guy was irreplaceable, but I don't necessarily know who will be hired in their place. If it's just some random, oatmeal-boring assistant from within Seattle's own ranks, or possibly another has-been getting endlessly recycled (like another Norv or Del Rio), we may not necessarily see an improvement.

    This feels to me like the beginning of the end of the Carroll era. I know a lot of people have had their faith in him restored by his willingness to fire his assistants, but that's going to depend on their record the next two or three years. Pete himself is probably more the type of guy to see their departure as an indictment on him and his philosophy. And it's not as if all Seattle's problems are gone. Russell Wilson is still Russell Wilson - an outstanding franchise QB who's just as frustrating as he is great, along with an uncertain offseason.

  • I look at the Rams as a good example of the life that a new coach can bring as a coordinator and mind. Things get stale and even just the break in routine and the different voice may do wonders. Look at the Rams in 1 yr.

    This is what I fear, especially if his hand was forced. I sincerely, and I mean really really hope this was Pete's decision. Or at the very least, Pete was open to it...and him, John, and Paul were on mutual terms. If Pete's hand was forced, then I too fear it's the beginning of the end

    It is never a good thing to not be on the same page as the Head Coach and we can go from perennial playoff contenders to the 49ers post-Harbaugh. And not every franchise resurges with a Shanahan + Jimmy G combo.

  • When you're in a rut, you have to change something.
    My brother's a Vikings fan, even he knew what play we were running by how we lined up!
    That's how stale Bevell was...
    Now Cable?
    He showed nothing the whole time he was here...
    Bad draft picks, inability to coach them up, no continuity...
    They won in spite of his horrendous ZB scheme, thanks to Lynch, Wilson and the defense!
    I couldn't be happier about this!
    Go Hawks!

  • Most people probably understand there will be some turbulence coming up, but I'm excited to see the necessary change. Forget scheme for a minute and just think what another season of the same regime would have said to Seahawk fans and to that locker room. Those guys were no longer known for their Super Bowl win, or even their Super Bowl loss. They were known for stagnating. Even Pete's head was being called for. You can't bring back another year of that.

    It doesn't matter if Bevell or Cable were actually even to blame for the problems. And maybe it wasn't even fair. But a message had to be broadcast through the whole organization, from the coaches to the players to the fans, that the status quo was no longer acceptable.

    I'm excited to receive that broadcast, and even if we have problems going forward (what organization doesn't?) it at least won't be for lack of trying.

    I understand being nervous, or even scared, but it's only because we don't know what's coming up. But if this year wasn't the final straw, what would have been?

    This. The roster is full of talent. A lot of good to great NFL coaches are axed because they fail to produce with terrible talent. Nothing but upside with a new offensive staff. Slightly worried about the defense though. Not much with Pete a defensive minded guy.

  • We wont succeed if Wilson can't complete a pass or get a first down in the 1st quarter.

    He no longer has the Elite defense that only required 15 points from him to win!

    It wont matter even if we bring in Belichick and Gruden as coordinators, because ultimately you need you damn Qb to play 4 quarter of efficient football.

    Maybe better or different coaching can change that. We get an opportunity, finally, to see. Hold onto your butt and welcome that instead of being a sour puss who probably hasn't enjoyed a moment of Seahawks football since RW got here.

    To be honest, no I haven't enjoyed much since the defense and Lynch declined, and the team became dependent on Wilson for sucess.

    I am excited that we will get someone new and I am sure it will be someone great, so that many more will realize that Wilson is a huge reason why we are so ineffiecent on offense.

    I hope I am wrong mate! I hope it was just the coaching!

    The thing that has driven me wild is that there hasn't been one opportunity to fully measure RW outside of the coaching system. Agree, the offense has become less efficient with RW controlling the fate of more snaps with passing - but that doesn't explain the why of running efficiency cratering to the degree it has which was a huge yoke on the overall fate of the team and very likely the impetus for RW being more of the fulcrum of the offense.

    We get an inflection point. We should be drinking in celebration for the chance to confirm our worst fears.

    Lol

    Me thinks someone is anxiously waiting for Wilson to fail. Just to say "I told you so"

    What a shame, how hard is it to be objective on the guy? We have no idea how the new coaches are gonna work out. And even some of the best QBs don't play four full quarters of efficient football. That would make him a perfect QB, which no one is

    This is pretty much how I see it as well. We needed new ideas and as you say perspective. If nothing else it sends a clear messages to the players that mediocrity will be shown the door.

    What doesn't anyone like about that?

  • I tend to think Pete's hand was forced.

    If you Paul Allen and you're at the cusp of winning two superbowls back to back and you lose like that, you gotta be beyond furious.

    He probably gave Pete some leeway because he won the prior year but you got to think Paul Allen was livid like fans are.

    And the subsequent years, you see your team diminish in talent and fewer wins each year, you begin to look at the team from a different view. Paul Allen, probably conducts team audits to see how the players and coaches relationship are, if he sees a potential issue and the wins are fewer and far between, things will start to unravel and reveal themselves.

    And ultimately, if you're unwilling to make changes, you're part of the problem.

    Something has to be done.

    I don't know what will become of our Hawks in coming years, but I do know, coaching changes are inevitable when teams lose as well as when they win.

    Yes, I'm excited for the future, why, simply put it, because you can't expect different results, by doing the same things.

    Just my two cents.

    Do you think perhaps playcalling had nearly everything to do with how he performed in the first half of games, I certainly do.

    Do you think perhaps playcalling had nearly everything to do with how he performed in the first half of games, I certainly do.

    My theory is, majority of the first half, Hawks try to establish a run game, and for the majority of the first half, it doesn't work, they fail to do so, defense obviously gets winded, and the Hawks ultimately gets scored on and fall behind.

    Second half, Hawks may be behind, as the first half shows, they can't run worth a damn, so Russ now allowed to sling it around to play catch up.

    Some plays are made, because more balls are thrown in the second half compared to the first, stats would then appear to look "better."

    Just my theory.

    Lol.

    You do know Wilson is going to the Pro Bowl this year, right? At one point he was in the MVP conversation as well. You talk like we should be starting a different QB. Smh.

    That's what I don't like. Most folks don't even really have a lot of tangible criticism for either coach beyond their raw results. The most tangible thing I can come up with is years of bad drafting at OL, for which I think Cable earned the can, but those picks weren't only his decision.

    If Seattle goes 9-7 the next two seasons, the narrative is going to change. It's going to turn into something like "Why did we get rid of the coaches who took us to Super Bowls when we probably should have just changed the roster?" It's also going to get a lot more people wondering how much of our struggles has been Pete Carroll.

    At least I can appreciate your honesty, Windy.

    That is an excellent analogy that I was totally unaware of. Thank you for helping us understand football. :sarcasm_off:


    So, wiseguy, will you join me in asking for qb change if the shit-show offense continues under new coaches?!


    Absolutely. But not until the 2nd half of the season and I have a better viable suggestion.

    Ya, I defend Russell, but I also see he is now part of the problem. My angle is the problem was predictable and our own fault by the budget oline and outdated has been coaching staff left to fix it.

    That said, a new shit show is not assurance it's entirely on Wilson since Pete is also a common denominator, and we all know he has his parameters the offense will still have to run under.

  • I don't think you have to be an expert in thermodynamics if you have two eyes and can see a fire destroying something. Whether a fan can quantify every single aspect and/or reason for the breakdown of Bevell and Cable in this system or not seems ineffectual to me. Point is, the system broke down under their watch and it was time (most would say long overdue) for them to go.

    Also I'd like to add that i don't think Wilson was as bad overall as you think in 2017.

    Sorry, Todd, I just don't agree with any of this. Too many other obvious factors in the way. I think people wanted a scapegoat and got it.

    I'm not heartbroken over their firings, exactly. Wilson was never going to realize his full potential under Bevell.

    I've just seen enough individuals get cut or walk away from the Seahawks and been replaced by someone even worse, to think that firings does anything certain besides give fans some emotional release.

    I'll feel better if Seattle signs people with an actual better rep, instead of scraping the bottom of the barrel with another Del Rio or another Norv.

  • I saw a graphic showing the hawks run/pass split dating back to 2012.

    From 2012 up to 2014, the Hawks ran the ball more than they threw.

    In 2015, they ran the ball slightly more than they threw.

    In 2016 and 2017 they ran the ball less than they threw.

    Gotta go back to pounding the rock and shoring up the D. Turning Wilson into Marino isn't the answer.

    Even the great Brees is seeing more success with a stronger run/pass balance.

  • Excited mostly. We have drafted a lot of O Lineman who haven't been good enough. I assume Cable at least helped in those selections. Maybe his blocking scheme is to blame. It can only go up from here as far as OL goes. I wasn't always a Bevell hater, but I think we need to find somebody that can get us to score in the first half. He has to take part of the blame. I'd like a little less predictability. I think Pete may have to back off from offensive philosophy and let the new OC and RW figure out how to put up some more points. It could be that RW has a lot to say about it. I don't think Bevell or Cable will get a lot of interest from other teams, which should tell us something.

    I down-voted this post, old man.

    You celebrate now with the rest of .net :lol:


    I had to go take a nap....

    I think I am in between nervous and excited. Excited for the change and cautious about where we stand with what they are going to do for coaches. Players are still a concern and we have no idea where we stand there either. What we do in the draft is dependent on what we do with our old hats that are on the team and what direction the new OC/OL/Owhatever we get does. Some change is good....so I changed something with me too. Cant remember what it was..but it is changed now.

    I downvoted your downvote which makes your downvote an up vote. so there. :P :les: :irishdrinkers: :les:

    I never said he was bad overall. statistically he had one of his best year. But you can't deny that he was nothing but horrible in first half of the games. No quarterback is always perfects, but when you are bad 15/16 games in the first half (has been bad his whole career), then that is a problem! We could easily have won 2-3 more games if he was not absolutely horrible in the first half. This is a direct correlation.

  • I was im some kind of Seahawks depression all year until this happened.
    All the sudden, Im back to being positive about the future.

    I am predicting that our next offensive coordinator will become our next head coach.

  • I’m excited to see the change, change is life for any organism.

    Pete’s rules are in evidence, if you don’t think so, read his book.

    Both Bevell and especially Cable were aware of the rule that you must always compete, they didn’t, and they were both given lots of opportunity to compete but both ran out of ideas or couldn’t fix their messes. In result they are both gone.

    I’m not buying the scapegoating theory exposed by several here. The O was broken and change was needed. It was clear that any change of just the OC left Cable there as the Assistant HC, OLine coach and self styled ‘running game coordinator’. That is an impossible situation for almost any new OC to have to deal with and structurally was likely there b/c Bevell had trouble using his personnel. As well the OLine was clearly just not doing it’s job. That wasn’t just a one year thing either. Was there more blame to share, for sure, but Cable had been given lots of resources and he was unable to coach his young players up, and the situation had worsened with him having control of the running game and the OLine, Cable’s time was up. Even he knew,or should have known, he’d failed to meet any stated expectations.

    We have all read the compendium of posts here about Bevell and his failings, it is hard or almost impossible to be the OC for as long as he was w/o becoming predictable, or stale. It came to a head this season with the total collapse of the running game and there
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!
