Seahawks fire OC Darrell Bevell & OL coach Tom Cable

Recommended Posts

One thing is certain, there are 3 or 4 candidates out there who, while they may not be perfect, would be massive upgrades over Dennison.

He’s absolutely horrible. Seahawk fans are excited he’s gone. A big no thanks! 

 

No offense, but I don't think Seahawk fans know too much about football.

And shitcanning your OC after the first year missing the playoffs when you gave him an OL composed of bailing wire and string and your D fell off big time is lukewarm IMO.

Yeah, I said as much up-thread as well. However, his QB development experience is undeniable and one of our most important priorities this offseason.

I’ll give you that, he did a good job with Wilson. How much is Wilson and how much is Bevell I can’t really say though.

Maybe because his only offensive weapon is the QB? 

They definitely have some receiving weapons, the OL is garbage though.

Most fan bases out of the playoffs hate their OC. Sf might be the exception given their trajectory.

QB-centric, and has worked with the likes of Favre, Rogers, and Wilson. Works for me, go get him immediately.

 

I still might prefer DeFilippo as OC and Dorsey as QB Coach, but Bevell would be an upgrade over Dennison as well.

I think DeFilippo would be my choice as well.  I think he'd bring a far more innovative offense and I love what he's done with Wentz.  Bevell would be by my 2nd choice.

That OL is disgusting. I’ve been watching his offense since 2012 though and it doesn’t do much for me. Dennison has been crap as well though.

For values of "no talent" that include Russ Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, and Jimmy Graham, that is

 

Right?

Those two super talented undrafted free agents, Doug Baldwin and Jermain Kearse

Seems like he would be a nice upgrade over Dennison.

Isn't this the guy who called a pass at the 1 yd line in Superbowl loss?

What's your point?  Are you trying to assert their draft position defines their talent after what they've done in the league?

Kearse just had a career year with the Jets with McCown throwing to him.

I don't think Carroll is that knee-jerk kind of guy.  He apparently checked off on that play and he wasn't going to throw his guy under the bus for it.

 

I think Bevell being fired now reflects several years of "not getting it done" and downward trajectory on offense.  "Creative differences" maybe, since the last few years have seen the Seasnakes move away from the run-first philosophy that brought them success.

 

IMHO, the Seasnakes have lost a number of key pieces on O (Okung and others on OL, Lynch, Kearse) and been a "day late and dollar short" at replacing them, but apparently Carroll thinks it was "on" Bevell to do more (or differently) with what he had.

They haven't drafted an offensive skill position in the 1st round since 2002! The closest they've come is Paul Richardson at pick 45. They just don't invest in the draft at the skills positions although they have drafted Okung, Ifedi and Carpenter in the 1st.

Seattle literally put players that never played oline before to block a superbowl winning QB.

 

They literally had to add a fat clause to the RB they signed to be the starter.

 

The QB went out and threw for the most TD in league.

 

They fire the OC.  Talk about a scrapegoat.

And they let Carpenter and Okung walk and arguably have not done enough to replace them.

 

The Seasnakes rose to prominence by the ability to identify skill positions on the UDFA and FA scrap heap, but sometimes you need to just bring in a talent infusion.

That's pretty much how I see it. 

You might justly add: "you missed the playoffs, in a year when your D faded from top-5 to 13th, and you fire the OC"

 

I'm thinking their OL coach may be next?

A Marshawn Lynch they never replaced, a nice WR that he helped develop, a middling Jermaine Kearse and a disappointing, failed, Jimmy Graham.  You didn't even get to the OL and what they did there...

LOL.

What's funny is the last time I played Madden, I was 15.  I put Reed and Moulds in the slot and ran slants all day.  It couldn't be stopped.

Hahaha amazing

I would be happy with any of DeFilippo, McCoy, or Bevell over Dennison. All 3 are former QBs themselves (McCoy and Bevell at much higher levels than DeFil) and very experienced in QB development. That is the biggest thing I'm looking for in an OC right now.

Interesting point raised in Joe Buscalia's podcast, Rick Dennison was not hired by Brandon Beane. 

 

Hmmmm...

True, but I believe it's usually the coaches call on assistants

Correct, but Dennison was McD's 3rd or 4th choice IIRC. So not much of a strong foundation to begin with.

Hypothetically speaking if Bevell is hired here.....Josh Allen might fit that mold.

my buddy just sent me an allen highlight vid yesterday. i'll be the first to admit I havnt seen enough of him to make any real judgement on him but O. M. G. the darts he throws while on the run. good lord its pretty. like, "how is that physically possible" sort of throws.... now after the initial awe of the plays wore off I understood that some of those are easy picks for nfl defenders but that still didn't stop me from popping like ten boners. I also caught the first half of his bowl game and watched in plop a 55 yarder into his wr's lap in stride at the endzone......... BONERS!

 

what an intriguing prospect.

this was my immediate thought... has already developed a qb from relying on the run game and d to being a guy that can single handedly take over games on his own. and as an OC he seems to be ok with calling either type of game, depending on strengths of the unit.

I'm not defending Dennison but watching  Dree Brees throw the ball during the Saints/Panthers game made me realize just how bad Bortles and Taylor are.
