    This would make sense if that's the direction they choose to go... The NFL is changing.. For one, the inventory of smash mouth, run blocking OL isn't what it used to be so adjusting to the college game makes sense from that standpoint...

    I think we are going to see a marked improvement with mostly the same roster.

    Talking about OC's, there pumpkin... Not Head coaches... And you think all college offenses use Chip Kellys type of offense? I encourage you to do some research on that...

    And if we're keeping it in the NFC West (Chip Kelly as your example), Pete Carroll, Jim Harbaugh, had done pretty well for themselves when they transitioned from college to the pro's...

    There isn't anyone that doesn't want that. Well at least no Seahawks fan.

    I measure every question about replacing any player or coach the same way: What are you going to replace them with.

    It's far from a given that their next OC will be better. We have seen many teams struggle to find offensive identity in the league and this teams identity is driven by Carroll's ultra conservative philosophy. As long as they won't spend money on that side of the ball I'm not sure how much anyone can expect.

    Here's a screenshot of the top ten rushing offenses in the league. Do you notice that 9 of the top 10 are in the playoffs?
    Running the ball is still very important to success in the NFL.

    I agree with that but the smash mouth approach that we've been trying to reinvent may not be the style we use anymore...

    IDK, have to wait and see. Seems to me Pete really, truly believes in a strong running game. So I expect he'll continue trying establish a offense that is balance.

    Agreed...Im sure that is what Carroll wants to get back to. Easier said than done.

    Agreed... We need an offense with balance... We must regain a running game but maybe now the pound it, grind it style we had during our SB run... The Steelers, Eagles, Panthers, Chiefs, Patriots, run the ball but I don't view them a smash mouth, grind it style like we had... I guess that's how I'm envisioning we model our running game after...

    But to your point, with out a doubt, we need to establish the running game...

    Heh, so if I don't agree Darrell Bevell was 100% pure garbage with zero redeeming qualities then that means I'm in the Bevell fan club? Sorta funny in a false dilemma kind of way.

    Ya , but dont you wanna move on ? Dosent it feel stale as fuck? You wanna face another year of 0-3 points at halftime and Wilson running for his life in second half trying to score points and ignoring called play? Another year of 1st quarter scripted plays that dont work? Im ready, dont think Bevelll is a complete jack ass, his calls just got stale.

    I'll reiterate what I said a couple days ago.... Cable was the problem much moreso than Bevell. Cable was in charge of the running game. But if Bevell must go for Cable to be gone as well, then I'm ok with a clean sweep. Overall net gain. Need a fresh set of eyes on the OL/run game problem.

    My "defense" of Bevell is pretty focused on him not being the main problem with what has happened the last couple years to the offense. I've never said he was one of the league's best OCs or anything close.

    Don't know if those are your words, their words, or generic words, but I wouldn't say what we've seen the last 2 years or with the Zone Blocking Scheme overall, is "smash mouth" football. I'm down with a smash mouth running game if we had guys/coaches who took that to heart. More times than not lately I've seen 5 girl scouts who couldn't even put their 300 lb body in front of a guy to merely disrupt his unimpeded route to the QB.

    Basically what I've seen has been some kind of "finesse" running game and that shit is absolutely doomed from the start. Give me some pissed off malcontent on the Oline any day over someone who pisses his pants every snap *coughIfedicough*
