Ifedi on Cable
Thu Jan 11, 2018 6:19 am
  • With this tweet from Ifedi, I'd say Cable took his anger management too far. The man who cost our team more penalties than some offensive lines combined should not like the man who's supposed to hold him accountable for those failures.

    Haha no there isn't unfortunately! I only noticed when George Fant shared the above tweet but I couldn't see it.

    To my knowledge I've never even mentioned Germain on there :shock:

  • A LOT of current and ex players are tweeting about Cable.

    The irony is our current players like Ifedi are a big reason Cable got fired, they stunk.

  • It's sort of funny the players we have that suck, offensive linemen mostly, are standing up for Cable. Maybe it's because they know the new offensive line coach is going to see right through them and they'll need a job wherever Cable ends up?

    My guess is all these guys do feel bad, I get it. It's not Ifedi's fault though that we overreached on drafting him, and then developed him poorly and put in him at a position he was doomed to fail at.

    THAT is why Cable was fired. The players can take all the blame they want, but when you have the highest number of O-lineman drafted and worst development into viable starters, AND the #32 running back stats in the entire league this year? Time to go Cable.

    I'd go much easier on Ifedi except for the completely dumb ass penalties again and again. Just another way to kill another drive and put the D out again to wear them down.

    That is 100% on Ifedi and Cable both (Cable for leaving him on the outside). He lead the damn league on a team that was also league worst in penalties. Those are not the kind of leaders we are looking for.

  • Come on, guys. He's not even expressing displeasure at the news. He's just showing gratitude to Cable, who likely stuck his neck out for him for him to even be selected and invested a lot of time in his development and growth.

    It's a gracious tweet and I was happy to read it.

    Ifedi's actually a beast, tall, long and crazy reach and strength.

    His problem even going back to college is his technique, just HORRIBLE habits with posture, footwork and hand technique. Which was Cable's job to fix all that, and he failed Ifedi miserably.

    Not good guard material either, usually you want those guys a little shorter and lower half stronger to deal with DT's. So not sure what to do with Ifedi, other than make him a permanent backup.

    One thing I do know, he can't be the starting LT next year..............unless the new line coach can come in here and work a miracle.

    LMAO

    Anyway to the thread topic, anyone who read the Dion Jordan SI article should be able to figure this out. Cable is a father figure like, hands on guy that players love. Does that mean he's great at his job? Nope, it does matter in terms of team unity and chemistry however, which is important.

    Cable's an old school hard ass, dude once punched his assistant the hell out in Oakland. So being hated probably wasn't his problem.

    OR maybe a decent POSITION Coach can help him break a couple of his bad habits + Ifedi wasn't the only Seahawks O-Lineman that needed Coaching up.
    By the way, wasn't Pete Carroll's son, Tom Cable's assistant?
    It would be a shame to see someone with Ifedi's physical tools get shit-canned over poor Coaching.

    No it wasn't Carroll's son that got punched out, some guy named Randy Hanson............and like I said above, yes we hope our new line coach and work his magic on Ifedi, the measurables are definitely there.

    It never works that way. The modern day coach doesn't have to be a rah rah guy but they still have to want to play for you. Players have more power these days and if their talent is high enough will be more than willing to move on

    if I was a jerk I would go on Twitter and tell everyone of our offensive lineman who are thanking Cable that they should be apologizing to the man. Their lack of ability to do anything competently is why he was fired. If I was one of them I'd seriously be working on my craft, because the next guy in didn't draft them and may not see what Cable saw in them.

    Ray Roberts was on 710 today saying that Duane Brown got noticeably worse the longer he was with the Seahawks and under Cable's tutelage. He said it has to do with the technique he teaches that it basically opens them up to bull rushes and outside rushes.

    if I was a jerk I would go on Twitter and tell everyone of our offensive lineman who are thanking Cable that they should be apologizing to the man. Their lack of ability to do anything competently is why he was fired. If I was one of them I'd seriously be working on my craft, because the next guy in didn't draft them and may not see what Cable saw in them.


    Ray Roberts was on 710 today saying that Duane Brown got noticeably worse the longer he was with the Seahawks and under Cable's tutelage. He said it has to do with the technique he teaches that it basically opens them up to bull rushes and outside rushes.


    Interesting. If true it would explain why we constantly see our online getting blown up at the point of attack. I have also heard that some of Brown's troubles where due to the depth of Wilson's drawbacks.

    Sheesh so we need opposing linemen to use an inside move for our guys to block them effectively? (yeah the last couple of years have made me quite cynical about Cable's system)

    Funny how when someone is fired and gone the critics say what they really want instead of he is the greatest. Roberts is on all the time KJR as well as KIRO and this is one of the first negative remarks we have heard about his teaching and the BS concerning Cable.

    He just blocked me as well. Apparently he didn't like it when I responded to that tweet with:

    "Grow? Did you get fatter? Because you sure as hell didn't get any better as a football player."

    True story.

  • Hindsight is 20/20 but it really is beginning to sound like Cable's version of the zone blocking system with the cut blocks and unique technique has to be so technical and precise to work that it was just reliant on being too precise. Its really hard to say if he evolved at all over the time here, as the system was working early on, so don't know if he tried to change it to more cut blocks and different techniques after the veteran group left? Anyways, a simpler ZBS with more power man blocking principles may be better suited to this group of O-linemen skills.
