    I’m ok with either but I would prefer, with the tremendous offensive rule advantages, to go offense esp with bringing in a new QB

    Also, I think the thought process behind the Gase hire was the right one. I wonder how things might have been different with Gase had he not hired a staff of complete no names who turned out to predictably suck. But ultimately that’s on him for those decisions

    First yeas HC needs all the help he can get and we had a staff of nobody’s that I don’t know that any team in he nfl would want

    My only point of curiosity with Gase is at QB and what the discussions were with trying to make it work with Tanne vs drafting a qb early

    If Richard can turn our defense into a top 10 defense, tall task, I’m cool with a ball control offense

    Part of the job is who you know. A good HC has the connections to bring in strong assistants. Gase didn't have any and we saw it with his staff. His best assistant coach was a holdover from Philbin

    Or a good enough interview prowess to identify strong assistants. Doesn't always have to be his friends.

    I agree that the Gase hire was logically sound and made for good reasons. Young, smart up and coming guy. Those are generally the smart targets if a proven guy isn't available. Just didn't work out for us.

    I'm down with Richard and Harbaugh. The former because he's a smart, young guy. The other because he's proven he can coach a consistent winner right now.

    I want a coach who is all in with Tank for Tua. No more 7-9 half measures.

    I'll gladly suffer two tank years over if it gives us a shot at an elite QB instead of more 7-9 shit.

    we need to know why he was fired a year ago by the seahawks, that worries me. Seattle is a pretty well run organization

    Of all the coaching moves the Seahawks have made so far this offseason – and even of those that may still be to come — the one that on the surface has seemed the least explainable is the firing of defensive coordinator Kris Richard.

    True, the Seahawks’ defense fell off in Richard’s third year as DC — to 13th in points allowed after ranking first every year from 2012-15 and then third in 2016.

    But much of that appeared attributable to the injuries that hit the defense as well as the inconsistency of an offense that too often did little to keep the opposing offense off the field.

    Holding the Rams and now Super Bowl-bound Eagles to 10 points seemed to show that the plan still worked when the Seahawks were healthy (or against the Eagles, good enough to get it done despite missing three key players).

    But Pete Carroll made the decision to jettison one of his longest-serving assistants — Richard had been with Carroll since his days at USC in 2008 — and bring back Ken Norton Jr. in his place, a move that former Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren last week called puzzling during an interview on KJR-AM 950.

    Carroll has yet to talk publicly since the coaching changes, leaving the reasoning up to some guesswork (and when he does, he may not give a whole lot of specifics. anyway).

    Among the reasons bandied about is that Richard might have been calling the game more aggressively than Carroll prefers. Carroll’s scheme is based on not getting beat deep, keeping passes in front of the secondary and forcing teams to have to go the long way to march for touchdowns with the idea being that the more plays it takes, the more likely the opposing offense is to mess things up (though it’s always been regarded that Carroll pretty much runs the defense anyway, no matter the coordinator.)

    And given that Richard is the first defensive coordinator Carroll has fired at any time in his head coaching career that’s an assertion that deserves some examination.

    The interesting thing is that in looking at what is maybe the simplest way to judge the aggressiveness of a defense — the number of times it blitzes — nothing was out of the ordinary this season.

    According to Pro Football Focus, the Seahawks blitzed just 22 percent of the time (PFF judges a blitz as any time a defense rushes more players than it has on its line, so meaning five or more in a 4-3, which is Seattle’s most common alignment).


    That was tied with the Eagles for the fifth-lowest blitz percentage in the NFL ahead of only the Chargers, Jacksonville, Bengals and Bills (and, yes, it’s interesting that two other defenses that are similar in philosophy to Seattle’s — the Chargers (where former Seattle DC Gus Bradley is the coordinator) and Jaguars (where former Seattle assistant Todd Wash runs the defense), were below the Seahawks, at 19 and 21 percent, respectively. Atlanta, where another former Seattle DC, Dan Quinn, is the head coach, was just above the Seahawks at 23 percent.

    All were far below the teams at the top of the list — Cleveland had a blitz percentage of 42 and Carolina 40, to lead the way.


    And the 22 percent blitz rate of this season is right in line with what the Seahawks did under Bradley and Quinn.

    An ESPN story in the middle of the 2016 season stated: “Since 2012, the Seahawks have blitzed — a pass rush of five or more players — on only 25 percent of opposing dropbacks. That’s the sixth-lowest percentage in the league.’’

    I'd be very happy with that hire. Seems to be a bright young guy with a lot of energy. Seems like the total opposite of Gase personality wise and someone the guys would be fired up to play for. I don't mind going defense because I think we have more talent on that side of the ball, but still not enough.

    Also, I really hope Kyler plays baseball because I don't want to be the team that fucks up and drafts him. And we will.
