Schotty... I’m grateful for how much you meant to me over the past three years. God blessed me with you, we won a lot of games, threw a lot of touchdowns and had a blast in meetings and our bible studies. The best days are ahead for you. Go be Great. God first.
Remember Schotty's first 2 games as Seahawks OC in 2018 when they came out and passed a lot and Pete basically sat him down and said we don't do that here
I do believe moving on from Schotty was the correct decision -- AS LONG as it isn't an indicator of Pete moving back to his heavy run-first philosophy... (but it likely is)
Imagine telling someone at the start of November and after the Bills loss that Schotty would be the one fired and not Norton. Plot twist.
The #Seahawks are justified in wanting to move on from Brian Schottenheimer.
But would you blame Schotty if he'd had enough of Pete Carroll's micromanaging & wanted out?
My thoughts on the "philosophical differences" & what that means for the next OC.
Schotty was probably ready to walk after the 4th and 1 fiasco and hard to blame him.
I’m honestly not surprised they fired Schotty. The fact that he couldn’t come up with any good counters to two high safety defenses really pissed me off. I’m actually pretty excited for the #Seahawks to get a new OC. I don’t care if they run more as long as they are creative.
(actually i think Schotty's deal hadn't expired yet, but you get the point)
Seahawks Offensive Coordinator job is a messy gig: Russell Wilson looks broken; OL ended weak: meddling Head Coach: "philosophical differences"; Schotty ousted; few assets; etc.
Yet so many offensive coaches love the idea of "fixing" franchise QBs. Wilson the dream project?
Agreed. But I think the "highest scoring offense in team history" stat needs a massive qualifier showing 1st and 2nd half of the season differences. It was the last 2 months that did Schotty in.
This one is Schotty (red line) vs #NFL averages in those years (gray line). Note that we skip some years where he was not an OC. Obviously his HCs influenced how he called games but we wouldn't say there was a history of passing more than average.
well they already had a successful offensive minded coach (schotty) and multiple elite WRs but whatever let’s keep rewriting the book to protect russ https://t.co/XfXQHnuvav
Totally agree. If Pete Carroll muddles with the offense then there isn't really a point to firing Schotty in the first place
do a poll. Who fired Schotty?
It’s a problem for sure. At some point Pete is going to have to let the OC coordinate and he has to stick to his defense. But Schotty in my opinion couldn’t adjust. He needed to be able to adjust. He knew who the head coach was when he signed the contract.
Nope... I think Schotty wanted out once Pete neutered the offense at mid season.
Remember...Pete said like a day ago that his sons tell him what he needs to hear. And today Schotty was canned. Which basically means that Pete's kids tell Pete what Pete decides he needs to hear. It's a fun trick.
Pets gonna hire some old school run first coach like Bevel or Schotty Pete is Bud Grant
And thus the circle is complete...the game plan was not prepared for what we all knew was going g to come form the Rams...fans were right- Schotty was the start of this and he paid the price.
Ted H Niners (12th pick)@TedH6
How after 3 years do the hawks cite philosophical differences for parting ways with Schotty? Like shouldn’t that get caught in the damn interview? Lmao
Maybe after exit interviews with players Pete decided it was time for Schotty to go?
Russ on call with Pete before Schotty gets canned right? Think he has any say on OC? maybe not.
Schotty was not creative, he couldn’t adapt. This is a good move. Though Pete will probably hire the wrong person.
Ok #12thMan, now that the #Seahawks have parted ways w/Schotty, who would u like to see as OC?
If philosophical differences are the reason to let schotty go, than @PeteCarroll
needs to let himself go for the differences between the personnel on this team and his philosophical ideas. How long you gonna try and force that square peg into the round hole?
