Seahawks fire Tom Cable

Jay on the Island : 1/10/2018 5:13 pm
Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports that the team has fired assistant head coach/offensive line coach Tom Cable. That report comes a day after the Seahawks dismissed offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and hours after word that they may also be parting ways with defensive coordinator Kris Richard. Quarterbacks coach Carl Davis has also reportedly been relieved of his duties.

Cable has been on the Seahawks staff since 2011, which was the last time that the Seahawks didnít make the playoffs before this season.

After HC the OL line coach might be the 2nd most important hire this off-season. They really need to find the right guy who can put Flowers, Wheeler, Jones, etc in the best position to succeed.
Weird.

He has had some good success coaching the OL in his career. Is it his fault they traded their awesome center and have been in a downward spiral since in terms of health and talent?
Cable did some

Good work early on.

Iím wondering, with his title, if he had some input on grading Oline talent.

I know Schneider works with coaches to help identify fits with scheme and mentality.

He would quickly realize Flowers is a no good slob. Hopefully, heís added to any incoming staff.
wow

The more that team leaned on Wilson, the worse it got

Look at their run/pass splits by year...

2012: 536 rushes/405 passes (11-5)
2013: 509/420 (13-3, SB Champs)
2014: 525/454 (12-4, SB runner-up because of passing when they should have run)
2015 (gets paid...he's the franchise): 500/489 (10-6)
2016: 403/567 (10-5-1)
2017: 409/555 (9-7)

Wilson is a good player, but the team has been worse off since he became their identity.

A lot of other players on that team have gotten paid once they got off their rookie deals. It's hard to keep the kind of depth they had during their peak in the salary cap era as guys reach their second contracts.

Definitely, but if you watch that team and compare it to what they were in 2013 the difference is apparent immediately. They went from a strong running team that complimented their defense to one that relies on Russell Wilson to pull plays out of his ass. And to his credit he does that quite a bit, but I feel like that's a team that's completely lost its way.
They donít have a coaching problem...

They have a talent and cap problem.

Schneider and Carroll put all their cap eggs into the defensive basket. And then snuck Wilson in there too...

Now they are forced to use bottom of the barrel cast offs to pretend block for Wilson, the running game, etc...

McAdoom should've done this

long time ago. Might've saved his job.
On the Tuck Rules podcast

Justin Tuck said a few weeks ago that he heard from inside the Giants organization Tom Cable was being considered as a possibility for head coach. I've not heard his name come up anywhere else for that, but I'd love to have him as the OL coach.

I would argue that they leaned more on Wilson out of necessity. Their OL has been pretty bad for a number of years now.

Not to mention that the big shift happened between 2015/2016, which coincides with Lynch retiring.
yes please

Cable is needed to shape up this sorry group
Did he punch any other assistant on the way out?  
TheShade : 1/11/2018 9:59 pm : link
Figured he'd KO a guy like he did in Oakland.
