In Topic: Seahawks players: Russel Wilson "not black enough"

Today, Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman shed some light on issues that Harvin had with Wilson, and ...


I think I see the problem here.

In Topic: Don't hold your breath for more no huddle offense...

I fully expect Shula to downplay his plans to use a no-huddle or to use a huddle in any interview.  I don't expect any coach to tell a reporter what he's planning to run more of going forward, ever.

How old is that picture?

In Topic: So why not do it like last year?

So anyway, have you noticed that this year we've dabbled in the no-huddle and a more run and shoot style?


Just because it doesn't always work or hasn't been effective doesn't mean that they're not trying something new.  But even though everyone is saying that our receivers as a unit are better, we really miss Smith in the open field and Ginn's ability to stretch the defense.

WCO is all about timing, and you have a QB who missed a lot of camp combined with receivers that are all new.  Timing patterns probably aren't your friend in that scenario...


With that said, Coryell isn't ALL about long balls, it's about letting the defense pick it's poison.  It starts with a power running game, and if you sell out to prevent the pass you're going to get run on all day long.  Usually defenses try and stop the run, which leaves passing opportunities in the flat or long.  If you're a DC and you have to play man on one, are you going to do it in the flat, where accuracy is typically higher, or deep, where your guy might get help and where you might have time to rush the passer?  Most DCs elect to cover the short passing game, which is one reason why Coryell has the deep ball/big play rep.


If you think about it, Olsen is still Cam's favorite target, and most of our longer plays are actually of the intermediate variety.  What we don't seem to be doing as much of this year as last is throwing screens or pitching it to RBs out of the backfield.  GIven that they're a little banged up, and that our receivers don't have the open field ability of Smith, that shouldn't be a big surprise either.


Those are my thoughts on it, as misguided as they may be...
