  • How would you all feel about finding a 3-4 DC and switching to 3-4? I think we would be so much better off.

    Is Irvin big enough to play LB?

  • Ray Horton's entire backgound is in the Steelers 3-4, which he brought to Arizona. A more likely 'homecoming' candidate would be Broncos DB's coach Ron Milus, who would be a very good candidate and fit.

    He has experience defending the zone read option (and was one of two teams that actually contained Johnny Football), has ties to this coaching staff and has done an amazing job at florida.

  • Nobody has mentioned DeWayne Walker... but he was the hot tip to be DC when Carroll first got the job. In the end Carroll stuck by Gus Bradley.

    His record as a coach at New Mexico State is pretty crappy, but he has NFL experience and worked under Greg Williams - so he'll know how to get creative up front and cause pressure. He's close to Carroll.

    CAN has convinced me that Dan Quinn would be the perfect fit for the job, but DeWayne Walker wouldn't surprise me either. I'd prefer Quinn, but Walker would be a fine #2 option. Don't know if Quinn would want to leave his DC job in Gainesville for another DC job in Seattle, although it's an NFL DC job, but Walker might be easier to convince to leave Las Cruces considering the state of the program down there.

  • They will just move someone up within the organization. Pete will run the defense (even more than he already has) until they have a guy they can trust to call plays.

    I wonder how this is going to affect Bobby Wagner? DC and Middle Linebacker relationships are important if you want a finely tuned D with good chemistry. Just like the QB and OC relationship.

    Rocky Seto is my dentist's brother-in-law (he works on Rocky's teeth too). My mom works for my dentist (as an assistant), so she hears a lot about the Seahawks, especially Rocky. I'm going to have her ask and see if she can get any info out of him.

  • Rocky Seto was Pete's DC in 2009 USC, then brought to Seattle for "back 7 passing coordinator". I think he might have a shot as the DC (beside he has a great football name)

  • Dan Quinn would be a great choice. What he has done with the Florida defense has been impressive. He is familiar with the system, and expectations - and could be paid a load of money from Allen. But is he frustrated at the fact that he was not chosen originally as DC when brought in by Pete? Quinn seemed to be preferred coach for the position, but then Gus was brought back as DC. He is also a East Coast guy, only spending two short stints on the West Coast - 2 years with SF and one year with Seattle. I think it is the best choice, but I get the feeling it is a long shot

    PC should have his pick of litter. I can't imagine why any aspiring coach would not frothing at the mouth to coach the Hawks' D. I'm not worried about any other teams being more appealing roster-wise, but obviously compensation is just as important.

    This is why Bevell will end up getting the AZ job. Arians already has a DC, forget whom, but he's not going to budge on it.

    Although, I wish you're statement was probable. I dont know why, but having a brother with cornrows running a defense just feels right to me. That's either racism or years or narcotics use.

    I really hope this is true. If Quinn is looking to be an NFL head coach at any point, Seattle is a going to be a great place to get his name out there if Seattle has another top 5 defense next year. (Ironically enough given our South Alaska location.)

    Sounds more and more like Lovie Smith is sitting 2013 out. He wants a HC job.

  • As others pointed out, Ray comes from the Pittsburgh/Bengals Labeau 3-4 style, so having him mesh with Pete's 4-3 under may not be the best of fits. Sounds like Dan Quinn makes the most sense but the point about him leaving to go to Florida after Bradley got DC from Mora and then with Pete, we will have to see if he wants to come back to the PNW. Not sure he does.

  • Quinn is going to go to JAX with Bradley. They are already close and with Quinn at the University of Florida, it's a short move for him too. Quinn was the one who suggested the Red Bryant experiment though so I'm not sure if him coming back would be a good thing.

    What about AZ's DC?

  • I know the conventional wisdom is Pete WONT switch to a 3-4, but I'm not so sure. He's done nothing BUT adapt and change his ways since joining the team. From Bates, from flirting w/ J McDaniel, from Bandit, Hass, Tjack, Wilson's zone-read, he's adapted when he's had to. The Hawks defense is actually built for a 3-4, from a personnel perspective.

    Pete would do it, if he thought it was best. Hell, he let Gus call the plays.
