So now when the offense does well its not because of the offensive coordinator, its because Russell Wilson is so great that he's telling Bevell what to do? Who put in the read option in the first place? Oh, that's right, the offensive coordinator.
The lengths some of you guys go to in order to stick to your narrative, in this case, that Bevell sucks, is hilarious.
The predictability, my guess, is largely coming from Pete Carroll. If you look at the scheme, the overall scheme that Bevell runs, its pretty aggressive, layered and ahead of what a lot of teams are doing. Those playcalls against the Dolphins were logical conservative plays dictated by a conservative coach not wanting to leave the Dolphins any time if the Seahawks were to score.
The packaged plays, read options, bubble screens, personnel groupings, multiple formations, is all, in my opinion, creative and for me, enjoyable to watch. Do I agree with every play call? No. But I've been reading this board for 12 years now, and the majority of this board has crucified the playcaller each and every season. Knapp, Bates, Bevell, Holmgren, all were chastised as "predictable". So, when you critcize Bevell, remember, that you all were criticizing Holmgren, widely considered by people in the NFL as one of the greatest offensive minds and best playcallers in NFL history.
Now you may all commence in labeling me a "Bevell apologist" so we can fit this thread into the normative behavior around here.
