  • 2011 Offseason

    http://msn.foxsports.com/other/page/...om=en-us_msnhp

    Josh McDaniels is being interviewed for the OC job after the firing of Bates. Personally, I would be thrilled if we hired him. Say want about how he handled being a head coach in Denver, but I'm a believer in his ability to run an offense. I like a lot of the players we've got on offense, and a creative coach like McDaniels is exactly what this team needs. Hire the man. Please.

      The guy (Darrel Bevell) they are interviewing from Minnesota.

      Could promote Cable I guess.

      Lots of speculation, but nothing solid other than Bevell.

        Apparently we've offered the former Minnesota OC the job. I guess he runs a West Coast Offense. Don't know that much about it.

          Two notes...

          ESPN Insider:

          ESPN NFC West blogger Mike Sando has a long post up discussing the various coaching moves in the NFC West. Relevant to the Seattle Seahawks, he suggests the hiring of Tom Cable as offensive line coach was in the works for a long time, and that this in part is why Jeremy Bates was let go as offensive coordinator. And the hiring could lead to a talent upgrade -- Oakland guard Robert Gallery will be a free agent when a new CBA is signed, and he reportedly enjoyed working with Cable.

          The Seahawks started a mish-mash of journeymen (Mike Gibson) and castoffs (Chester Pitts, Stacy Andrews) at guard in 2010. Signing Gallery and pairing him with Max Unger (who missed 15 games in 2010 with a toe injury) would be a big upgrade in talent, and that's not even considering what Cable could bring to the table as a coach.
          Mel Kiper:

          25 Seattle Seahawks
          7-9
          *Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
          Everything about Mallett's arm screams top 10, but he could fall a bit as a player who needs to develop footwork and the willingness to bite off only as much as he can chew. That said, Mallett's game progressed in 2010. He showed improved accuracy and a willingness to move around and consider the dump-off passes he often passed up as a younger player. With a year of development, he could be a good value here and a long-term answer for the Seahawks. It'll be asked, but my sources tell me the Seahawks prefer him to Washington's Jake Locker -- at least right now.

            It'd be nice to get an upgrade on the OL, but I mean how many years does Gallery have left?

            As for Kipers draft, I saw that mock draft and I don't agree with the Hawks pick. This year isn't a very deep class, and the OT class is not looking strong. Tons of teams needs QBs, and only 2 going in the first round, while normal, is highly unlikely this year.

            Mallet won't be the pick anyways. Tons of talent yes, but what the hell is going on off the field that has Scott so worried about him? I mean this will come out in interviews, and I just think that your going to see Mallett drop.

            Also, Locker still has the Senior Bowl and the combine to impress. He will be a first round draft pick when it's all said and done.

              It's coke.

              And I doubt anyone really cares that much about coke.

                I've heard the speculation about that, and I'm not quite sure I believe it. We'll see. I'm more worried about the other stuff (at least for a QB), and I try not to stereotype, but holy **** does Mallet sound stupid in interviews. I've heard other people with drawls and they managed not to sound that stupid...as in he's so stupid I expect a positive drug test at the combine...

                But yes, people do care about coke when he is going to be the face of your franchise. Drug addictions generally don't turn out well on the PR stage. Especially when your paying him several million guaranteed and he's going and snorting it up. Like they say, money only makes you more of what you already are...

                  Ya I've heard that from Michigan people and from Arkansas people.

                    Thinking about who the 'Hawks might take a look at this offseason. Obviously, they believe in roster turnover. Few guys I think could help us out...

                    Position, Name, Age when 2011 season begins:

                    QB Bruce Gradkowski, 28

                    OT Jermon Bushrod, 27

                    WR Steve Smith, 26

                    WR Sidney Rice, 25

                      FB Vontae Leach, 29

                      FB Marcel Reece, 26

                      WR Early Doucet, 25 (I think this kid's got some real potential. His stats don't show it, but he was good in the playoffs with Kurt Warner there, and most of that season had been playing behind those three good receivers. No one in Arizona not named Larry Fitzgerald was going to put up big receiving numbers last year, so he might be undervalued.)

                      C Samson Satele, 26

                      RE-SIGN MEBANE.

                      Sorry if any of these guys have already re-signed with their teams or something, contracts are kind of hard to keep track of. I'm going off of sources for who was scheduled to be a free agent.

                        I didn't see Gallery's name when I was going through the free agents list. Is he going available?

                          According to the article I quoted...

                          I don't know if we really need WRs... BMW and Obo are locked up and Butler and Tate are talented with upside... and our offense is at its best when we incorporate our backs and TEs into the passing game (I hope we re-sign Leon and feature him on O more often).

                            Sidney Rice starting opposite BMW would be really hard for defenses, and like I said about Doucet, I think he's a talented player who could be undervalued. You're right about the need, though. Scratch Steve Smith. He'd probably cost more than he's worth to our offense.

                              Bob Sanders just got cut. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d...e=HP_headlines

                              I wonder how much he'd cost with his injury history.
