    And, much like a Unicorn, when asked to block Jimmy Graham is completely imaginary!

    Chris Carson's injury is not soft tissue, so doom and gloom about that seems a bit much. He almost came back from it this season.

    Carson got 4.2 per carry behind this line, and that was w/o Duane Brown and with Odhiambo at LT. McKissic is the only other back that finished north of 4. No one is saying Carson is the next OJ Simpson, but he was a better league average producer behind a really bad run blocking line. I don't think it's unreasonable to believe his return to the lineup in 2018 should represent an improvement over what we had the last 3 months of this season.

    He was also imaginary between the 20's...

    Clayton was just on record believing that the entire coaching staff will remain the same next year... He doesn't believe anyone will be fired due to Carroll's loyalty... Seems like the only way our coaching staff will change is if Cable, Bevell, Richard get a HC job somewhere else...

    Well, that's just one man's opinion though, and he's not always right. I think the odds are that there will be some changes, whatever the reason. PC may not "fire" anyone, but I think it's more likely than not that we see someone move on.

    Clayton is usually pretty accurate.

    This means a down year in 2018 and possibly an entirely new staff the year after

    I like Cris Carson, he was doing good before the injury... I thought he was a bright spot in our draft ... He's gonna be our guy next year, I would bet on it...

    Carson is ok but we definitely should draft a rb reasonably high. After we trade down, maybe a late 2nd early 3rd.

    That would be a wasted pick that high in the draft. FO needs DL, DT, OL, LB and K.

    Obviously it depends who is available, but this team needs a RB in a bad way. I dont think a pick in the 90-115 range would be too high.

    Yeah sorta like field goal kickers. But they'll miss now and then.

    Clayton also said a while back that Gruden was gonna be the next HC in Tampa. Miss.

    I hope Seattle finds a way to draft Royce Freeman.

    I want to see who is on the roster before I make a prediction.

    Bennett may be gone, and Avril may retire. Bennett's production definitely did drop off substantially this year imo, and he's not getting younger. Seahawks may let Richardson walk. I think Richardson played well, but he can get $10m a year and Jarran Reed really showed up this year, and Naz Jones was real good when he was in there. I'd like to see Richardson back, but I recall seeing he had interest going back to NY.

    Although we need more o-line help, we may need some edge rushers.

    Scarborough is also a great option.

    There are better players out there. Chubb and michel ard studs and would be ideal but will be high picks. Adams actually looks alot like carson.

    Sty fr away from alabama RBs, tremendous bust rate.

    Well, it was 2 days after the season ended, and he's under no obligation to lay all the cards out on the table for the media. He also said there is always turnover -- may have been answering a question about players moreso than coaches but it applies across the board. Firing coaches also isn't the only way changes happen. Some get jobs elsewhere. Some retire. Of course there's a chance the staff remains exactly the same, but I just think that's fairly unlikely. Gruden has to fill out an entire staff, and there are 6 or 7 other HC changes around the league as well. I guess we will see.

    It's a pretty safe assertion, Carroll's fired how many coaches since coming to Seattle? Sherman Smith, is that it?
