Darrell Bevell: Job security?
Mon Oct 15, 2012 9:02 am
  • Despite the great game Wilson played yesterday, is Bevell's job at risk for next season or does Carroll really like him as OC? I'm still not comfortable having the offense in Bevell's hands. If Bevell is gone, who are possible replacements?

    Really? Our QB has a breakout game...we call multiple big plays this week....threw for almost 300 yards....and all this after weeks of Pete saying he had limited the playbook, not Bevell, and yet people are still concerned about whether Bevell will be here next season?

    Let's enjoy the victory and let's see if Bevell will continue giving Wilson big play opportunities as we move on.

    Maybe it's just me, but I refuse to look at anything negative after a game like we had yesterday. As a fan, I live to enjoy these moments. It's a short week and we may not have this enjoyment for long. Playing the Niners is going to be tough.

  • My guess is unless Bevell gets a shot at a head coaching job he'll be here for the duration. PC heaped some praise on him yesterday after the game.

  • Before coming to Seattle, how highly regarded was Bevell around the NFL as far as OC's go?

    You assume the question is legitimate. With Carroll saying from the start of the season, that he was personally limiting the playbook, how can you or anyone else, really blame bevell for it? Could he have been a scapegoat if we were 2-4 instead of 4-2? Maybe, but that's not how things have gone down. So far this year there is no reason to question Bevell. We can question Carroll's choice to go with a rookie qb who wasn't ready to use the entire playbook (although I wouldn't), but to put this on Bevell is just not legitimate.

  • I thought the playcalling on offense was actually pretty good yesterday. They were selling out to shutdown the run and we were able to take advantage of that. Bevel's playcalling has been questionable in the past, and may well be questionable in the future, but after yesterday's game I think dude earned a week off from the angry mob trying to run him out of town.

    Seriously, what is it with people on this board always trying to lynch somebody? SMH...

  • I will admit, I wondered out loud what they were thinking before that last touchdown pass to rice...they huddled up while the clock was running and they were at midfield and needed a TD, not a field goal to take the lead....as the huddle broke, I said to my brother who was sitting next to me, They are wasting too much time....and in mid thought, I had an epiphany...I finished saying unless they are going to go for the endzone on this play, wasting that time in the huddle will be a mistake. A few seconds later, Rice is behind the safety and the ball is in the air and I was just going nuts as he caught it in stride for a TD

  • bevell is, and has done fine. i know ive griped about him several times but he comes up with some neat stuff. Especially loved the triple TEs to one side.

    Keep the guy around, he's a good OC that comes from a great coaching tree, Andy Reid > Brad Childress > Darrell Bevell.

    That and he's a former Wisconsin QB himself! :D

    And it's funny; after that long TD pass, I started thinking they should have burned MORE time in the huddle!

    Tom Brady is always vaunted as this great competitor, as are the Patriots, but at the end of the game yesterday, you could tell they didn't really want the FG that bad. Their final series was awful(ly awesome).

    This is a really odd thread right after a big win in which the offense finally broke out and scored more than a measly 12-15 points.

    I do agree that Bevell might not be the greatest O-coordinator in the league. But also remember that we have a rookie QB, so Bevell's hands are tied somewhat with play calling. He also has to deal with Pete's conservative game plans, injured WR's that are just now hitting their stride, and an O-Line that's had a hard time pass blocking.

    So it's not all on Bevell.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

  • I've been frustrated a time or two with Bevell, but I think yesterday was a great game for him. I think that they have tried to limit Russell and it has led to the offense being stagnant and predictable. That's why I was so happy to play New England this week win, lose, or draw. Having a high-powered offense come in forced our coaches to really challenge Russell and give him a chance to make some plays.

    If this continues to evolve it could create a perfect scenario where the O will kinda catch up to the D by season's end and give us a really nice, balanced team.
