Seattle Seahawks 2011 Season Preview

Published on September 4, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

While Seattle certainly wasn’t expected to make a deep playoff run, don’t think head coach Pete Carroll will simply just rest after getting the Seahawks to the postseason for the seventh time in 12 seasons. Carroll and general manager John Schneider pulled off an incredible 284 transactions in their first year together, and the team may have as many as 11 new starters between both sides of the ball in addition to a new kicker in 2011.

But while Carroll tried to mold new piece after new piece together throughout the 2010 season, his first at the helm of the Seahawks following a successful college tenure with USC, he’s taken a slightly altered approach for year two.

For starters, he brought in former Raiders head coach Tom Cable to be his assistant head coach and oversee the offensive line. That will help a pair of new starters in tight end Zach Miller and left guard Robert Gallery, who both played under Cable in Oakland, fit in quicker.

Even bigger is the addition of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, who figured to be a step behind because of the lockout’s shortening of offseason preparation time. However, Jackson will be working under new offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who comes to the Seahawks after spending his previous five years in that position with the Minnesota Vikings, the team that just happens to be the recent home of both Jackson and another free-agent addition, wide receiver Sidney Rice.

See a theme here?

“The unusual circumstances of the lockout allowed us to think and revisit what our opportunities and our chances were,” said Carroll. “The more we saw it coming, the more we realized that we needed continuity and we needed continuity that we could generate in a very short amount of time.

“Without question, in the minds of the staff and across the board, we realized that because of our background on our offense — with Tom and Darrell coming together — we could capture Tarvaris in this thing, who’s been with Darrell for five years. We could hit it running full speed.”
