  1. Poor Smitty...so unappreciated around here. His last stint as DC didn’t work out, but amongst available HC’s, his track record is second only to McCarthy. Sure wish someone would give him another chance. Dude had a .600 winning percentage over 7 years. That’s impressive
  2. True...but we can’t exactly sell job security considering what transpired today.
  3. You’re about to celebrate another National Championship. I suspect you’ll be not mad again around 11:00 pm next Monday
  4. I agree Kubiak is a better choice, but it looks like he is staying in Denver. And while those stats are not jaw dropping, for many years Bobby Wade was his #1 wideout. Do you know him? I don’t. Every season he has had a good receiving corps (2009, 2012-2014) his quarterback has thrived
  5. I don’t mind a difference of opinion. Just trying to lay out some facts before we bury Bevell unjustly. He may not be the best OC in football, but he is a good one and more than qualified
  6. He was OC for back-to-back Super Bowls. His downfall was Pete Carroll trading away his All-pro center and leaving him with this as his OL...and they spent a whopping $7,000,000 on this who’s who of OL bums 32 1 Germain Ifedi RT $1,502,746 0.97% 2 Bradley Sowell LT $1,000,000 0.65% 3 Justin Britt C $942,800 0.61% 4 Mark Glowinski G $611,423 0.4% 5 Rees Odhiambo T $611,355 0.4% 6 Garry Gilliam RT $604,000 0.39% 7 Joey Hunt C $475,089 0.31% 8 George Fant T $456,666 0.3% 9 Terrence Magee RT $61,764 0.04%
  7. Would I prefer Kubiak or Gase? Absolutely. But I don’t believe they are an option. Bevell will balance our run pass ratio and get us where we need to be. He is very disciplined...and we need that. I don’t really think our offensive metrics will improve much. But our consistency and ability to adjust will improve
  8. To be fair, Pete Carroll traded their all-pro center for Jimmy Graham. It left Bevell with these players as his starting OL: 1 Germain Ifedi RT $1,502,746 0.97% 2 Bradley Sowell LT $1,000,000 0.65% 3 Justin Britt C $942,800 0.61% 4 Mark Glowinski G $611,423 0.4% 5 Rees Odhiambo T $611,355 0.4% 6 Garry Gilliam RT $604,000 0.39% Not surprisingly, the Seahawks finished dead last in OL play. 32. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (32) Top overall grade: C Justin Britt, 80.5 (No. 16) Top pass-blocking grade: C Justin Britt, 79.1 (No. 21) Top run-blocking grade: C Justin Britt, 71.9 (No. 18) Nobody has invested less in their offensive line than the Seattle Seahawks, and it showed in their performance over the 2016 season, with the unit being directly responsible for some of the team’s losses. Even their best performer, Justin Britt, was moved to center in a last-ditch attempt to salvage his career, rather than have to invest more in the position (though he has played far better at center than any other position, surrendering no sacks or hits this season). The other four starters top out at overall grades of 52.3, and the best-ranked among them (LG Mark Glowinski) is the 63rd-ranked player at his position league-wide. The success Seattle has experienced this season is entirely in spite of its offensive line, and requires QB Russell Wilson and the running backs to play stellar football to continue to overcome the unit’s deficiencies.
  9. A team running 3-4 defense will throw $10-12,000,000/yearly at Beasley if he is allowed to test the market. I suspect we use that money to keep a Quinn veteran, Irvin.
  10. I tried to repress Percy Harvin. Thanks for reminding me of him
  11. Just go listen to #9. You’ll get it
  12. If Pete Carroll had not traded his All-Pro center for Jimmy Graham, the Bevell narrative would be quite different. I would not mind Bevell.
  13. WTF is a Beadles...glad he and Ty improved the last month of the season. Solid depth for next year
  14. Good perspective. My guess is Bevell then. Not a bad option IMO. Though I’d like us to interview Rich Scangarello if we are trying to keep Shanny’s style
  15. They didn’t offer him OC...just a role with the offense. I find it odd Elway wouldn’t simply make him OC
  16. PMF...any idea why Elway would not want Kubiak as OC? Seems like an odd statement Elway talked about Gary Kubiak staying. Atlanta was among the teams interested in hiring Kubiak. Can #Broncos find coaching role for Kubiak, even if it's not OC, but an offensive role that allows him to contribute during the week? Seems like that is now a possibility. #Denver7 40 3:17 PM - Dec 31, 2018
  17. This begs the question: why wouldn’t Elway want him as OC?
  18. Yes sir...it’s why Gase was my #1 option, but he will be in Cleveland or Denver as HC next year
  19. Hmmm...does he want to have a role with a good offense...or be the reason for a great offense returning to form.
  20. I suspect all this was decided and handshake hire made when it was announced a month ago that TD & Quinn were safe. Quinn agreed to assume DC role and fire the coordinators as pawns. It was around then that Kubiak rumors surfaced
  21. Fingers crossed, bro. All I want for Christmas is Kubiak as OC, Knapp as QB Coach. When Kubiak was HC & Knapp QB Coach, Denver was the only team in history to post 10,000 yards and 1,000 points over 2 year span
  22. Shanny sure did get the most out of Kittle this year...
