    Wait a minute...blitzing up the gut is legal???? I don't there's been a Seahawks defensive coach that's known that for the past half decade!

    Bradley hands were tied behind his back all year long. They were running Mora's schemes, and yes they were very unsuccessful. And really the same should be true again this year with Bradley as DC and running Carroll schemes. Don't think this is a bad move at all.

  • If the players respect Bradley then that speaks volumes, because they didn't respect Mora or Knapp. As far as I could tell Gus is a bright guy that was stuck in a horrible situation, and I am guessing if he had it to do over he never would have taken the job with Mora in the first place. He was sold a fraudulent bill of goods in my view.

    So was it Bradley you were speaking about or some other defensive coach who wasn't sure if they were in or out? Or some other less visible defensive coach/aide?

  • Bradley and Quinn had nothing to work with on the defensive line. I'm not sure whose boneheaded idea it was to move Mebane to the 3-tech or to keep constantly rotating players in a vain attempt to keep offenses guessing. I imagine Kerney's constant inclusion on the line was due to the size of his contract, which would have been a decision above either's heads.

  • Very Very Happy about this - our coaching staff has shaped up to be what I believe one of the best in the league - in a very short time. Between the veteran presence of Gibbs, Gray and Brown and the relative youth of Bates, Bradley and Quinn (youth in the flow of new ideas I feel) - the staff is already head and shoulders above most in the league.

  • Too be honest, I don't know much about Gray and if Carroll thinks he can work with him that's enough for me. But I will tell you what I do know, LaRon Landry has gotten noticeably worse. It could be the player, but it could also be the coach. Time will tell.

    I think it's the player.. Landry has the most aggressive style of almost any safety I've watched, and he is prone to biting on play action and pump fakes. Matt Hasselbeck punked him pretty good back in the 2007 playoff season, and it looks like folks have been gameplanning similarly ever since.

    Sometimes you can get a guy's number once there's enough film on them.

  • This is a way to put a coaching staff together. A solid mix of up and comers with those who are experienced. It's too bad that Solari didn't want to stick around.

    Jim Mora, are you observing this? You stuck a fork in your Seahawk career by those ridiculous choices you made (I'm talking about primarily the offense coordinator).

  • i'm very happy with this staff...i've been on the fence with the PC selection, I got over excited over mora's enthusiastic introductory presser and thought we would bounce back so now i'm slightly jaded and don't want to put the cart first, but so far carroll has assembled an amazing staff, it's starting to look like very good things will come soon

  • Not so fast on Gray, as per KFFL HOTW

    "Seahawks | Gray says he has not yet signed
    Comment (0)
    Mon, 18 Jan 2010 16:18:41 -0800
    Updating a previous item, Jason Reid, of The Washington Post, reports Washington Redskins secondary coach Jerry Gray said reports of his hiring by the Seattle Seahawks are a bit premature. Gray said, "I do have an offer from Seattle to be their secondary coach, and it's a one-of-a-kind offer, but I have not signed yet. I'm not waiting for any particular reason, but with the holiday it hasn't happened yet. I'm not saying it won't happen."
    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 completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken. The OLine still needs work.

  • Gray's DBs came up with 8 interceptions last season.

    That was tied with the Raiders and better than the Lions, and Rams. At least we aren't getting those teams' DB coaches.

    it seems like this is a slam of sorts at gray, kinda like he's not the WORST possible, which isn't much of a compliment. while the picks aren't there i guess, look at washington's rank as a pass defense all around, which improved measurably each season that he was there. total yards given up in the air means more to me than number of picks. if i'm not mistaken the skins were 23rd in pass defense (yds/game) in the league when he came aboard, and at the time of his exit this year they ranked 8th.

  • Yes it was. He never had a bad word to say about the Seahawks or anybody within the organization. His dream in life was to continue coaching for the Seahawks until he retired. Sure it was probably not realistic, but he felt like he had found a home there and his children loved the area, he loved the organization/players/co-workers, they were content. They treated him really well. He hoped that someday he could work his way up to being their head coach (who doesn't in the coaching world of course). But Mike is a class act. I feel bad because it really hits home when something like that happens. I am really torn as I love my Seahawks. But what a downer it is that he wasn't kept around. He is a great man.

    A lot of the info I got on the organization that would seem critical would come from anybody BUT Mike. He is a good man and a real company man. The Seahawks are worse off without him I think, even if they had moved him to another role within the organization. He loved the organization. But that isn't the deciding factor most times unfortunately. I'm sure he'll land on his feet somewhere.

  • According to PFT Rams O-line coach Art Valero is interviewing with the Seahawks. He has experience as an o-line, running backs, and tight-end coach. He would most likely be an assistant o-line coach here.

    He's on the NE Patriots staff - http://www.patriots.com/team/index.cfm?ac=coaches

    Mike Clark must be a great salesman. I don't know how he still has a job. Not wishing anyone to get fired but the Seahawks have had some problems with health and conditioning the past several years. So he should be evaluated and change should be considered.

    I feel the exact same way. All this positive media buzz finally and the only thing i can do is wait to see if it pans out. I believe we have attained guys that are masters at there craft and hope they can project that down to the players this year. After watching some of 2J and Forsett highlights, the inside zone blocking looked to have picked up late in the season and that was with the student cpach of the ZBS. Now that Alex Gibbs is in, the inside run can only get better. Now what to do about the Outside Zone?
