Seattle had similar problems to us this year -- no OL or running game. The difference was Bevell had Graham, some half-decent WRs, and Russell Wilson pulling numerous games out of his butt. And they still couldn't make the playoffs.
Unless we expect to get another Russell Wilson on board, how could we expect Bevell to even equal that kind of "success" with the Giants?
Seattle's decimated defense gave up 110 points the last 4 games of the season...basically 28PPG.
Explain to me how Bevell was supposed to fix that?
Defensive issues aside, it's plain to see they've struggled for consistency on offense. How about when they scored 12 points in what was essentially a do-or-die game against the Cowboys a few weeks ago? Or when they scored 7 against the Rams the week before? Hell, even we scored more against the Rams. Or when they started the season with that awful 17-9 loss to the Packers. Winning that one sure would have been handy coming down the stretch.
Bevell did some nice things in Seattle when he had the power running game at his disposal, but like most average coaches, the results are erratic when he has subpar talent to work with. Guess what we got here in NY? There's a reason Seattle fans look at him about as fondly as we look at McAdoo.
