Seahawks to interview Kirby Wilson for OC

The Seahawks have thus far focused their offensive coordinator search on recently fired head coaches, being connected to Anthony Lynn, Adam Gase and Doug Pederson. The team has a longtime assistant on its radar as well.

Report: 2021 salary cap could wind up in the $180M range

Just three games remain in the 2020 NFL season, and that means that it is only a matter of time before fans begin to narrow in on the free agents and college players they would love to see added to their team for next season. It is little different than in years past, however, this year’s version of free agent dreams and draft hype come with the backdrop of a salary cap that is expected to decrease significantly from the $198.2M at which it was set for...

If Pete Carroll wants to run it more, then the Seahawks must retool their rushing offense

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

I imagine there was a collective groan when Pete Carroll said in his final press conference that the Seahawks needed to run the ball more and run it better next season. The year that began with Let Russ Cook and Seattle actually obliging ended in a power struggle, a schematic mass, and poor execution that left the offense in tatters.

And why run it more anyway? Seattle’s EPA/play on early down rushes (scrambles are not factored in) was 2nd in the NFL and the...

Seahawks OC search: Seattle expected to interview Raiders assistant

I tried to find a picture of Kirby Wilson and Tom Cable together with the Raiders, but was unsuccessful in doing so and had to settle for Wilson with coaching legend Hue Jackson. | Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

For many fans of the Seattle Seahawks the NFL playoffs have taken a back seat to the search for an offensive coordinator following the team and Brian Schottenheimer parting ways. It’s barely been a week since the team announced that they and Schotty had broken up, but they have already...

Damien Lewis makes PFWA’s 2020 All-Rookie Team

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

One of the bright spots along the Seattle Seahawks offensive line was rookie Damien Lewis. The third-rounder out of LSU started every game for the Seahawks in 2020, including one as backup center for the injured Ethan Pocic, and exceeded expectations.

Lewis’ instant success has captured the attention of the Pro Football Writers of America, who put him in their 2020 All-Rookie Team alongside tackles Tristan Wirfs, Jedrick Wills Jr, center Lloyd Cushenberry...

Russell Wilson is at a critical juncture in his career

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

It’s taken me a bit to really put my finger on what exactly made the Seattle Seahawks’ Wild Card defeat versus the Los Angeles Rams so dispiriting. Perhaps it was the fact that they never led, they never forced a turnover, they never offered up sustained offensive success, and even the units that had been carrying them in recent weeks (defense and special teams) had their hiccups that contributed to their demise.

But while Pete Carroll took his lumps, Brian...

Seahawks OC search: Mike Kafka to stay with Chiefs per report

It’s been barely more than a week since the Los Angeles Rams ended the season of the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, and Tuesday marks exactly one week since the Hawks parted ways with Brian Schottenheimer. Those two things have combined to bring a cycle ups and downs not common for the offseason as Seattle fans have ridden the waves of ups and downs as names have been connected to the opening.

To this point in time many of the...

It has not even been a full week since the Seattle Seahawks and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer split up, but multiple big names have already been reported to have been linked to the position. First it was former Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn who was linked to the position, and then it was former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson who was reported to have spoken to the Hawks about the job. Monday a third recently fired head...

In the NFL “offensive balance” means throwing the ball. A lot

The 2020 NFL season is down to the final four competitors, with the conference championship games set for next Sunday For fans who wish to see a championship won with the run game and a defense, the football viewing over the remainder of the season may not be to their liking. The matchups in both conferences feature a pair of teams that like to air it out and are pass-first offensively.

The matchups, of course, are:

Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley hired by Chargers

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Staley thoroughly owned the Seattle Seahawks offense for all but a handful of possessions across three matchups in the 2020 season, but thankfully the Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator is leaving after just one season.

The #Chargers are hiring #Rams DC Brandon Staley as their new head coach, sources tell me and @TomPelissero. An impressive young candidate, he gets a prime job in LA.

And then there were four teams.

The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs last met in the AFC Championship Game back in the 1993-94 season, and they’ll meet again in 2021. Of course, the big question mark is whether or not Patrick Mahomes will clear concussion protocol and start next Sunday. If not, Chad Henne will be starting in his place.

Deshaun Watson’s time with the Houston Texans could be over

Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

It was around this time last year that the Houston Texans held a 24-0 lead against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. I think it’s fair to say that everything has truly gone downhill from that point.

After that 51-31 humiliation, the Texans did the unthinkable and traded DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals and gleefully took on David Johnson’s $10 million salary. Head coach Bill O’Brien clearly was unfit to be a general manager but the...
