Bevell may not be the problem, but we can sure as hell do a lot better.
Pretty much how I feel too. When Wilson becomes more consistent, when the passing game develops chemistry, we will have a good enough offense to win a Superbowl (considering our defense). Bevell isn't "good enough" right now, but he might be in 2013. He's basically in that grey area between "keep" and "replace." If someone with credentials became available, I'd dump Bevell in a second, but I wouldn't want to see Seattle firing him unless they already had someone in mind to replace him. Teams with young QBs should not take OC changes lightly.
One of the problems our team has is that almost all the coaching talent favors defense in some way. Bevell is basically following marching orders from a brilliant defensive coach, with the goal of the offense being to assist the defense first, avoid turnovers second, and score points third. Cable is a great line coach, but his style is tailored to the running game which goes hand in hand with ball control and scoring less. I'm not saying I want Mike Holmgren here as OC, because I don't and it would never happen anyway, but I'd love to see Pete Carroll bring in a big ego, big results offensive mind to basically take over the offense for us. Someone like Jeremy Bates, basically.
If Andy Reid gets canned this year, I won't be able to sleep every night thinking about my irrational hope for Andy Reid being OC for us. Pete probably wouldn't do it and Reid probably wouldn't do it, but Reid would be the perfect fit for our offense and QB.
