2. Darrell Bevell
Seahawks fans on the Twitterverse have been calling for Bevell’s head for a few weeks now, pointing out poor play calling, such as the final offensive play against New Orleans that almost got the Hawks the win.
And so on. It’s easy to dissect offensive play calls that didn’t work after they have happened, say Bevell apologists, while the #firebevell people hate all of his playcalls. At the very least, Bevell has struggled to adjust to Wilson’s knee injury, which has taken out an element of the passing game and handcuffed the playcalls a bit. Bevell can’t expect Wilson to create throwing time with his legs for downfield plays, for example.
Still, a good offensive coordinator has to make these adjustments and communicate the tweaks to his design to everyone on the offense, from Wilson to the offensive line. Making large adjustments like treating Wilson as a pure pocket passer isn’t easy, but this is why Bevell makes the big bucks while you and I sit around in tiny apartments and criticize him.
