Time to move on. Young coaches are dominating in pro football. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/39280057/pete-carroll-expected-seahawks-coach-sources-say

I think that it's a good move, but be ready for some likely growing pains. They have been mediocre for a few years now, sometimes it's better to be really bad for a couple of seasons in order to rebuild with higher draft choices, otherwise it's easy to become stuck in mediocrity.

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

Advisory position. Is that polite way of saying contract buyout.

Keep Calm and Carry On? Heck No. Stay Excited and Get Outside!

But will they be any better next year for it? rolleyes.gif Probably still sniffing around .500. Don’t need A Dan Quinn defensive scheme. huh.gif Upgrade at QB wouldn’t hurt (to put it mildly).

Sorry but Geno is a very good QB. Could they upgrade at QB in the draft, sure, but look at the high QB picks in the last 3 to 4 years, waste of draft capital except for Stroud. I'd take Geno over any of the rest. He throws a very accurate ball, give him some better protection! I like Top Billin's youtube channel for Seahawk content. He pretty much nails why Bieniemy wouldn't be the best fit in Seattle, I suspect same reason why so many Seahawk fans hate on Geno.
The bigger issue I believe with the Hawks is/was coaching, clean house with defensive and offensive coordinators for that matter, instant upgrade, some of this was on Pete for hiring these clowns:

Imo, Geno is neither good nor bad, but mediocre. His breakout season a year ago will most certainly be his best. I think that now defenses and coaches have adjusted to his game. I think it would be a god idea to draft a QB within the first 2 rounds as I think having Geno as a mentor for a coupe years and as a backup would be a smart move. This poll has him rated at #18. https://www.nfl.com/news/nfl-qb-index-ranking-all-32-teams-primary-starting-quarterbacks-at-the-end-of-th-x3120 Then we have Dak Precott, who almost had me believing that he was a top tier QB until another playoff loss, he is now 2-5 and imo THE most over-rated QB in the league. When the going gets tough, he just doesn't do it.

Allegedly Pete Carroll got real mad about the results of various Google and CHAT GPT surches so he threw the computer to teach it a lesson. This behavior was frowned upon by the Big Power Players in the organization.

Carroll and Bellichick are dinosaurs, the new NFL has left them behind...or maybe they were carried by good and great QB's and defense, once they lost those, they lost....Fired! smackbum.gif

Seahawks did absolutely amazing with all the new coaches they got. And i'm not even a fan.

You could probably say the same about Andy Reed, except he still has Mahomes, John Harbaugh, Mike McCarthy, and a few other old school coaches in their 60s. The formula works, but isn't chic or sexy.
