At what point does Pete Carroll hit the 'hot seat'..?

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Just because its not the norm that we win on the road...doesn't mean (and this is getting way ahead of ourselves) we can't go and string a few road wins together in the postseason. We don't know how this team would handle that pressure...they could thrive. You don't know.

    Any Given Sunday.

    We can't say "oh well let's not try for the playoffs because we can't win on the road"...that's garbage. Law of averages fellas...you never know when the abnormal is gonna make an appearance...its bound to happen.

    Are you seeing the improvement in this team? Is this young team growing and learning how to win? Are they building on what they have learned this season and in seasons past?


    After today I see little evidence there is growth with the team as a whole. Obviously there is growth with a few players ie, RW. But I think the team has digressed. The penalties are back and the defense is getting run over as well as the secondary is being lit up. This looks just like the early stages of a team coming apart not coming together. Can PC turn it around? We'll see.

  • The Seahawks have gone from 30th or 31st in weighted DVOA to top 5 in just 3 years. As long as we are one of the best teams in the NFL, they have all the patience in the world from me.

    There is no such thing as a clutch coach or a coach who could make us a 8-0 road team. The current Niners team is the only west coast team in recent memory to dominate on the road, and they are statistically the best team in the NFL over the last two seasons. Seattle is not a truly elite team yet like SF. They are close though. Seattle has played WAY better than their 1-5 road record. WAY better. I'm guessing that with average luck they've probably played at a 3-2 level, but for whatever reason they always find a way to lose in the 4th quarter. I don't think that's coaching. I think it's just shitty luck and nothing more.

    To even post this topic is unseemly. Don't give stupid people bad ideas. But to answer the question, I wouldn't cast my vote against Carroll until it's clear that the game has passed him by and he's basically like an old Al Davis. That day will come eventually, but probably not for at least 10 years.

    The top teams in the NFL do not lose to the Cardinals, Rams and Dolphins on the road.

    I don't know where in DVOA that comes into play.

    I see what English is saying, but we're nowhere near that Giants team from a year ago right now. For one, that Giants team was actually better on the road than they were at home.

  • I dont know man im sick of rebuilding all the time around here lately. Pete is a hell of a coach man. He is almost a defensive genius when it comes to linebackers and the secondary. But he has to look at him self in the mirror and think about the offensive side of the ball. Its ok to have a power run game if your winning. He has to open the offense more. We will see how we finish up. But if we are .500 this year and with his past records thats not going to cut it. If we end up .500 or worse I would give him one or two years and then he could go coach boston college or something.

    Agreed.

    The reason the NFL is "Any Given Sunday" is because many games hinge on literally a handful of critical plays. In a close game, those debatable penalties, and those astounding catches, and those unlikely plays make all the difference. If ET hadn't gotten that PF on that interception, does anyone think that wouldn't have made a difference? The Dolphins scored a TD one play later, instead of the Seahawks having the ball.

    If RW had escaped in that last play of the Seahawks' last possession, and hit a guy downfield, taking us in FG range ... does anything think that might have made a difference in the outcome? RW did exactly that for much of the game ... just not that last time.

    Does anyone really remember 2005? I remember a lot of nail-biters, many of which were won by 50+-yard FGs by Josh Brown. I remember the Giants coming in and improbably missing not one, not two, but THREE FGs which would have won it for them.

    And of course, I remember a very improbable Super Bowl that year, where the better team lost.* It happens.

    The goal, in the NFL, is to be IN the games, and to hope that you can be the beneficiary of a few improbable plays. Talent helps -- no doubt. But sometimes the ball bounces your way, and sometimes it doesn't. Undefeated teams lose to cellar dwellers. Referees decide games they shouldn't.

    We're IN the games, folks. We just aren't quite getting it done.

    No growth? How about this time last year we'd just gone 4-7 after a home defeat to Rex Grossman's Washington Redskins. We're 6-5, not 2-9. We're STILL in position to get a wildcard. We have one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL. Can PC turn what around? The Miami game was a bad defeat. If we'd won, everybody would be on here today declaring how we could make a run in the post season. The hysterical response to this latest game is mind numbingly stupid.

    How are we one of the 5 best teams in the league? I think some of you guys look at numbers more then your eyes.

    We just got gashed in the running game yet again. How is that improvement? We currently are riding the coattails of a great start defensively which has skewed these magic numbers that you are using to judge this team.

    My eyes see lots of flaws on defense.

    No, all that matters is making the playoffs.
    It doesn't matter if you go 15-1 or 7-9 if you make the playoffs - it doesn't matter if you went 15-1 or 7-9 if you lose the first game after that.
    I'd rather be a team that's 6-5 with 5 close losses than a team that's 8-3 with 3 blowout losses.

I wish he would show more confidence in the players that he brought in and coached up. Hopefully that will happen next year when he no longer has a rookie quarterback.

    He no longer has a rookie QB J. Wilson's already past the rookie stage and if I can see it, Pete should be able to as well. Dude progresses through his reads like a 6 year vet and when was the last time he made a poor decision? He makes physical mistakes now and then (poor throws) but he hasn't made a mental mistake in the last 3 or 4 games that I can recall. I thought they should've thrown the hell out of the ball today to loosen up the Phins' defense. That goes along with what you said to be sure.


    Actually I thought he made a crucial rookie mistake today. Should have thrown the ball into the dirt on that blown screen to Lynch instead of actually completing the pass. That cost us some critical yards. But overall, I agree that he doesnt play like a rookie.


    It depends - do you lose a couple of yards and hope you can make them up on the next play or stop the clock and give the dolphins even more time to score?

    So when does Pete Carroll hit the hot seat? 2013? The last 5 weeks if the team bottoms out? Not at all?

    Discuss.


    JSeahawks wrote:From the fans, he already is.

    From Paul Allen, I think we could lose every game the rest of this season and he will be fine. He will be evaluated on next season, imo.


    You got all that from one game? No need to look at the vast improvements from last year to this? Or the youth of the team? Just go over the edge on one last second loss (by the way each of our defeats this year have come to the last play, although the 9ers game was far more of a long shot)

    The top teams in the NFL do not lose to the Cardinals, Rams and Dolphins on the road.



    How about losing to the Cardinals at home (Patriots), or nearly losing to the Rams on the road (49ers). This statement is idiotic.

    our foundation is there, our QB is there, our Oline is young and still learning to play together. Yeah, these loses hurt, but playing as young as we are with the veteran leadership being a 30 year old FullBack or a safety that is in his 3rd year, there are going to be games were we biff it hard do to lack of maturity as players. We are still green.

    Calling for heads after each loss, or even calling this team mediocre means your are not paying attention, and certainly not using your God Given logic.


    All true but at some point all those great things need to lead to wins. We are looking at yet another 500 season. How many more will he get?

    We would be out of the playoffs if they started today, if I understood the tie-breaking procedures correctly.

    If you can't get up for a road game and win a few you won't be around long in the playoffs, it's simple really.



    Not true. We would be the 6th seed if the playoffs started today and we'd be traveling to Chicago for the WC round.

  • The team is better then it was last year and I think it's pretty clear, QB and WR play alone is waaaaaaaaay better then last year. The only thing on the team that is worse this year then last year is the run D and I have no answers for that other then Branch and Mebane don't seem to be as effective. The LBs don't seem to fill the gaps all the time and Kam doesn't seem the same since the beginning of the year.

    Yes it is extremely frustrating that they can't seem to pull it out on the road. The reason seems very obvious to me and it's that the defense doesn't travel. Specifically the defensive line doesn't travel for whatever reason. I thought we could always rely on the run defense to be there but that has disappeared since halftime of the Niners game. When the team pressured Tannehill he made awful decisions. He wasn't pressured enough in the game, the 4th quarter specifically, and he shredded the defense. We don't get pressure on QBs on the road and now we don't defend the run either on the road. That isn't going to win a whole lot of road games. It's that simple the team is built to stop these 4th quarter drives that the Lions and Dolphins have put together and they aren't doing it. The team is built to play with the lead and finish but we can't hit the quarterback or even make him uncomfortable late in games.

    Also I'm sure you are a real nice guy and all cesame but reading your posts makes me want to punch you in the face...repeatedly. That is in no way a threat or anything like, I despise internet tough guys, that is just the feeling I get from reading your posts which if they were printed on paper would not be worth wiping my, well you get the idea.

  • USChawk

    That is an excellent overview and is very much the same thing I am seeing. Branch an Mebrae and wearing down , not getting penetration and shoved around. I suspect they will be looking for another big man in the middle in the offseason.

    Lam I think was hurt when he backed off to decrease his penalties. He is not real fast and his game seems to be stooping runs and helping out the LBs in coverage. I can see why they considered moving him to LB. I think it makes sense actually

    The guy that's killing us is Trufant. I have been watching him carefully the last few games and he sadly no longer has the physical tools to do it.

    As far as JC it's the same as the rap on a lot of coaches coming out of college. A lack of discipline in aspects. The PEDs, penalties , freelancing on the defense etc. he needs to make the players accountable and pay a price for mistakes

  • I think wins against NE and other great teams helps as much as hurts a coach.

    I am saying - if you can beat NE how come you loose to St Louis, Miami and Arizona?........

    How come you play all these close games but loose that many towards the end?

    How come the play-calling looks like you don't want to loose the game instead of just going all-out to win the game......

    Each loss is not equal. You go 8-8 but lost twice to 49ers and they win the SB and then had another loss to Chicago, Houston, GB or something then people can live with it.

    You beat NE, GB, go 1-1 with 49ers but loose to St Louis, Miami, Buffalo and the play calling looks bad (may or may not be but LOOKS bad) then the heat on the seat keeps cranking up

    So many offensive penalties that killed drives, he simply did not have them prepared

    Not going for that field goal (which again, offensive penalties killed that drive)

    Not going for it on 4th down, which would have been well worth the risk considering how good the defense was in the first half

    The final drive, going completely conservative when we needed a first down to get into field goal position. Calling a running play and a screen on 1st and 2nd down, neither of which had had any success all game, thus allowing their defense to play the pass on third down. Let Wilson throw the ball on first and second down.

    He played not to lose. That is fine at the start of the season when we're trying to break in a rookie QB, but now we're in a playoff race. Go for the win.

    Now we might possibly be looking at a 9-7 record or even 8-8, with a supposedly elite defense and a great running game, and that is right around Carroll's teams usually ended up in his first stint in the NFL.

    That game took my opinion of Carroll as a head coach way down.

  • In my opinion Pete Carroll is a good NFL coach, not great, but good. Is that enough to bring us to the promised land? With enough talent (thus a great GM, which I think we have) and smart coordinators surrounding him I do think it can be done.

    Pete has proven to be a good motivator of young men. He has a great defensive mind and knows how to build a defense. From a scheme point of view, he may even be ahead of the game. From an energy and physical standpoint, he prepares his teams well for the most part each week.

    However, this team consistently has way too many penalties. And penalties can cost you a game. This is a sign of an undisciplined team. His "excuse" is "youth", but I call BS. Tom Coughlin would never allow 7 freaking penalites in just the first quarter of a game, even with an all rookie squad. While being too much of a dicatator can be detrimental, in general, being a more disciplined team leads to more success IMO. There are exceptions like the Colts under Tony Dungy, but I don't get the sense that Pete demands the same level of respect that Dungy does when he walks into a players meeting room. Pete is simply too lax and "trusts" his players too much IMO. To truly be elite, I believe he needs to distance himself a bit more from his players. There needs to be more of a boss to worker mentality and less of an uncle to nephew feeling.

    Additionally, I don't think anyone can argue that Carroll is not a below average in-game manager of the game. He wastes many challenges (one day which will cost us a game you can count on it) and tends to call at least one dumb "hormonal" play per game which makes you scratch your head.

    Would I rather have Tom Coughlin, Jim Harbaugh, or Jeff Fisher? Hell yes, but it is what it is. Pete overall is a good coach, so I think we stick with him unless some strange massive collapse unfolds, but unlikely to happen. I do hope, however, that he recognizes his weaknesses and tries to make an earnest effort to correct them.

    This x 10000000000000. I know we have 2 very bad men in our back field, and I'm all for getting Beast Mode his touches, but the guy (DangeRuss) has shown nothing but improvement as the season has went on. Why not give the guy the green light to fire the ball 3 downs for once. Run Run Pass and Run Screen Pass are starting to get old real quick.

    Edit: I understand the mentality by running on first and using a screen on second, keep the clock running, but Miami shut down the run all day. What in Gods name made them think that on the most critical of drives the outcome would be different, is beyond me.

    Plausible deniability. If we catch them and don't report it....it's a scandal and coverup...draft picks and huge fines etc(picks is exaggerated on this but has happened)

    It sounds like it may have been not reported to the league that they were legally prescribed and sent through proper channels to the league?? (Hope and pray)

Every single game we have been in, we have a rookie QB who we haven't even begun to build to his strengths yet. I wish we could lose one game without you nancies calling for PC, Bevell's, or Wilson's job. STFU.

    our foundation is there, our QB is there, our Oline is young and still learning to play together. Yeah, these loses hurt, but playing as young as we are with the veteran leadership being a 30 year old FullBack or a safety that is in his 3rd year, there are going to be games were we biff it hard do to lack of maturity as players. We are still green.

    Calling for heads after each loss, or even calling this team mediocre means your are not paying attention, and certainly not using your God Given logic.


    Thank You. Pete isn't going anywhere as long as he wants to coach in Seattle. Period End of Story.

    I totally agree. I made a post at halftime saying Russell Wilson should have 35 throws when this game is over if we are going to win because without him the offense was completely shutdown. And if any other QB would have been in. I don't even want to know how many sacks there would have been.

    Thank you. Exactly. There's no need to put Pete on the hotseat yet.

    Think where this team was when he took over to now. It's been a huge improvement. We're only a few plays away from being 11-0 this season, honestly. Had some unlucky breaks.

  • Pete on the hot seat this year is crazy talk, all the guy's done is infuse the team with great young talent at just about every position.

    IMO the next two years is when the Hawks have to take the next step. Next step = serious perennial deep playoff contender, and on equal ground with SF for NFC West titles.
