Can Chip be the Next Carroll + Offseason




First off, I just wanted to congratulate Pete and the Seahawks for destroying the Broncos. Now living is SoCal my whole life, I was a really big Pete Carroll fan and when he left to the Seahawks I tried to keep up with him ever since. (Quick college stat, Chip is 2-1 when facing Carroll, maybe that's a good sign.) For me, the thing about Pete was his keen sense of getting great players, whether recruiting or developing them at USC, and he certainly brought them to the Seahawks. Pete is a defensive minded coach, and a great one at that. One of the biggest things that stands out to me is his first draft, where he got Russell Okung, Earl Thomas, Golden Tate, Walter Thurmond, and Kam Chancellor. It was a stellar draft, literally, and after trading for a hidden gem in Buffalo the Seahawks finally had something to cheer about. Now Pete has had tenure in the NFL before, and he had the best defense in the NFL. Chip is finished with his first year, and remember it took Pete 5 years to build a championship team, so my question is can Chip build a championship team with smart drafting and should we give him a 5 year estimate or maybe even sooner?

Offseason Wishes:

Re-sign Nate Allen, Riley Cooper, Maclin, Donnie, Thornton

Free Agents Chris Clemons, Brandon Browner, Taylor Mays, Geoff Schwartz, Colt McCoy

My Free Agents aren't the best, but I think we can bring them in for some competition at the positions most needed. If Browner is reinstated I think he would be a good compliment on the other side with Cary Williams. Chris Clemons the safety and Taylor Mays, bring them in for competition to see what we got, honestly they have to be better than Pat Chung and it would soften the need for a safety in the early round.

Draft: 1. Ryan Shazier or Telvin Smith

2. Pourifoy

3. Daniel McCullers

4. Dion Bailey

5. DeAnthony Thomas

5. Kevin Norwood

7. Aaron Colvin

If Tre Boston and Colt don't get drafted I would love for us to invite them to our camp. Also I see McCullers pick as competition for Logan and to give Logan a break. Also, my draft was looking towards the future, I don't think most of the players can come in right away and start over some of our current players. But with the right development I think they can be better in a year or two.
