Rumor Alert: Bradley will be new Eagles HC.

    I'm not totally sure. I still remember 2010 when Pete was chewing Bradley out during those games. Bradley has a lot of control, and there are times when Pete might not agree with those decisions. It's also a remote possibility that Seattle's creative blitzes were drawn up by Bradley and not Carroll. I'm actually very curious to see how the defense changes if Bradley leaves.

  • Nothing else said about the Seahawks was more incongruent with what I was seeing with my eyes than they have an elite defense. Sherman is elite. Browner is good. Earl Thomas is close to being elite. Chancellor is very good. Bobby Wagner has great potential. Red Bryant can occasionally have amazing plays. But elite? Not even close. The run defense was crap most of the season and that's what everyone was taking a out before the season.

    Minimal pass rush, save a few nice little streaks here and there. I wonder I'd Irvin might be a bust, but I don't think so yet.

    A change at DC doesn't bother me.

    IIRC, Trestman is kind of infatuated with Wilson. Was at NC State when Wilson started, and is reported to have said he knew WIlson would play in the NFL when he sat in the 18 year old kid's living room.

    I would be doing friggin cartwheels.

  • If true, Bradley needs to bone up on his being a dick skills. He has had it too easy here in Seattle with the media, that Philly crew will hit him with more hard questions in his first interview than he got the whole time in Seattle.

    I can see it. First question. "WTF, Bradley. Why that soft ass zone against the Falcons? Can we expect that crap here? You ever been hit in the dead with a D-cell?"

  • Lovie is a cover 2 guy and we never run cover 2... can't see the fit.

    Ryan has a HUGE ego, not sure I can see him fitting into the synergy of our staff and if he joined, I'd take bets on over/under number of weeks before Cable and Ryan square off. Plus, didn't he sign with the Rams?

    Too bad Kiffin signed with the Cowboys, he'd surely fit. Quinn is a good fit and so would Norton... I'd like another low key addition, no big splash.

    This is honestly truth. If we actually had an elite D, no one all year would score more than 14 points on us at home- NO ONE. CL gives our D such a huge advantage. The true test of our team is where we ranked more so on the road...I feel like we are about the 10th best D overall which is heightened to top 2 when we're at home because of what the 12th man does to opposing offenses.

    We allowed 18.75 points per game on the road against a far softer schedule as opposed to 11.875 at home with the likes of (GB, Dal, NE)...If we could actually get to a spot where we were elite on D, no one would have a chance at home..ever

  • I just read up on Pepper Johnson, DL coach for the Patriots. He's another motivator, which you can never have enough. The pats run 3-4/4-3 pretty much do as good as they can with lower drafted players. He might work well as he can coach up the DL, and take mentoring from Pete...

    You crazy, lower drafted players. Most of that Pats D is 3rd round and up, with a healthy dose of first rounders.

    I didn't look, but suppose you are correct. I guess they skimp at LB and DB a bit... It always seems they are pulling someone out of the cracks though, but in retrospect, they are fewer and short lived.

  • ARGH, I don't know if this deserves its own thread or if it goes in this one, or what, but BREAKING (I think) news from Chris Mortensen:

    "Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell is scheduled for a 2nd interview with the Bears on Tuesday."

    If someone deems this thread-worthy go ahead and make one.

    EDIT: Screw it, I'll make one. Nobody lives forever!

  • I hope Gus Bradley is gone.

    Way too many games lost in the last seconds by other teams making comebacks against our soft zones. Yet, we have the best man cover corners in the game. Why no press?

    I think the Seahawks would improve if Bradley left and I've thought so for a while.

  • I don't even think he's that great of a coordinator. He's going to be in over his head as a head coach. This will end badly for Gus.

    I really think most of our defensive success has been due to pete and john drafting excellent players and bringing a creative scheme to the table. If anything I think Bradley has held back a very talented defense by refusing to blitz till it's too late.

  • Doug Baldwin just tweeted this :

    "Gus Bradley would make an amazing head coach. His half time speech on Sunday to the defense was inspiring to us all. I wish him success!"


    Sure Bradley was not as awesome as some DC in this league in term of plays calling but we were not in the locker-room and at VMAC during this season. We do not now is psychological impact and is relation with our players...

    I'm not worried about replacing Gus, especially with a guy like PC as HC but I'm just sayin it's never a good news when a coach is leaving a team who is working well with him.

    Please Pete, be smart during this offseason, as focused on coaching staff as you'll be on our draft board.

  • Anytime you have success you don't want to rock the continuity boat. But I don't think the Hawks are a "system" team (like the Patriots) where losing coordinators or head coaches would spell the end of what makes the team successful.

    The main reason the Hawks succeeded this year is talent, on both sides of the ball. Any coordinator would pull a hamstring wanting to come coach this young talented defense or offense. I really don't think we'd skip a beat on either side of the ball if Bevell and/or Bradley left.

    I agree with you on this. Which is why I believe that the DC will be someone the players trust and respect. It will be another example to them that if you work hard and produce results with this organization, you will be rewarded.

  • I'll go on record as saying I'd like to keep Gus as DC. The players love him and play as a team under him, all the while getting younger over the last couple years AND dramatically improving.

    Have they been perfect? No. But they've been heading in the right direction. I think one more year of offseason player acquisitions would set this defense up to be something really special and having a coordinator who already knows his players weakness and strengths helps keep this team moving forward.

    Kevin O'Connell ‏@KevOC7

    Candidates are also being told Seattle DC Gus Bradley has accepted the Philly Eagles job as well. 2nd interview turned into contract talk


    Now how does that jibe with the reports the he and Bevell both are interviewing tomorrow for Jacksonville? Not sure. I have seen a couple of these false reports in the past few weeks so until the team announces it, just more fodder for the heap.

    I was reading the comments on their SB nation blog, and it was similar. Apparently Bradley scouted and drafted our entire secondary, single handedly turned Clemons into a pro-bowl caliber player, invented the current Seahawks defensive scheme, can easily find all-pro cornerbacks in the sixth and seventh round, and could create a top 5 defense using only third string players from a community college cricket team.

    Lol. Is that really what they think?

    I don't think we will miss him at all (not saying that means he will not be a good HC). We have plenty from within that can keep the message strong. Norton or Richards comes to mind. Either way, I think we all know Pete (with help from JS) is the mastermind of the D as it is today.

    Even John Schneider agrees with you and said as much today during his interview on Sirius. As long as Pete is around, this team can withstand coaches wanting to explore better opportunities in their coaching career.
