Preseason Week 2: Position Battles Rage On

This week, Tom Cable sat down with reporters and talk show hosts and said guards JR Sweezy and James Carpenter have a chance to be the best guard tandem in the NFL. The comment took us all by surprise, especially since this offensive line has largely been regarded as the one weak spot on an otherwise exceptionally deep roster. A Super Bowl-winning roster. But Cable is a no-nonsense...

Tom Cable: Browns violated 'unwritten rule'

Tom Cable isn’t happy, though it’s worth nothing he hasn’t punched anyone yet. Why is Tom Cable unhappy? Because the Cleveland Browns violated an “unwritten rule” in the NFL. Earlier this month, the Seahawks waived right tackle Michael Bowie with an injury distinction. Basically, the Seahawks wanted to put Bowie on IR, but he had to clear waivers first. Bowie didn’t...

Did the Browns break an “unwritten rule?”

The Cleveland Browns made a relatively below-the-radar move earlier this month, adding offensive lineman Michael Bowie after he was waived by the Seattle Seahawks. Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable appeared on 710 ESPN Seattle, suggesting that the Seahawks still believed in Bowie and that the Seahawks expected the Browns to stay away from him, citing an “unwritten rule...

Tom Cable May Have A Blind Spot

Column written by Brian Nemhauser of, a partner of Oregon Sports News Let me start by saying Tom Cable is one of my favorite coaches on the Seahawks. He stopped the never-ending turnstile of offensive line coaches and instilled a toughness the Seahawks had not seen on the line since Walter Jones, Steve Hutchinson and Robbie Tobeck paved the path to a record-breaking...

Seahawks offensive line bonds together over hot yoga

Today I had planned on continuing our series of position battle previews going into Seahawks training camp, but the offensive line was on the dockett for today and I feel like we’ve beaten them up enough lately. If you’re looking for some depressing analysis on the O line, you can check out my grades, or George O’Gorman’s piece on Tom Cable from a couple weeks back. One of...

Analyzing the 2011 Draft: Oakland Raiders

Seahawks offensive line grades: even worse than you thought

It’s no state secret that the weakest link in the Seattle Seahawks championship chain is its offensive line. While it might be easy to write off problem areas when you win the Super bowl by 35 points it would be foolish to downplay just how much the unit struggled in 2013. Russell Wilson has one year left on his rookie contract. His cap hit for next season is roughly $800,000,...

Tom Cable must upgrade Seattle’s awful offensive line

When Tom Cable was tapped to be the Seattle Seahawks new offensive line coach/assistant head coach on January 18, 2011, he inherited an offensive line with a legacy of serious problems. Cable – who only a year before had been the head coach of the Oakland Raiders – was a high-end hire for a challenging situation. The Seahawks were among the leaders in the NFL for sacks allowed...

Pete Carroll: James Carpenter has never looked better

The Seattle Seahawks have to make some tough calls on the offensive line, which was the least reliable unit on the team last season. Line coach Tom Cable and head coach Pete Carroll have to figure out a way to get better pass protection for Russell Wilson who was hurried as much as any quarterback in the NFL. This offseason the Seahawks have added two rookies to the unit: tackles...

The Good The Bad! The Seattle Seahawks 2014 draft class

Three Rounds Complete But Just Two New Players Day 1 of the NFL Draft ended and as far as the Seattle Seahawks are concerned we saw exactly what we everyone thought we’d see from Seattle in the 1st round. Nothing. As expected the Seahawks traded their 1st round, 32nd overall, pick to their favorite draft partners, the Minnesota Vikings. Given that the Seahawks have just re-signed...

With continuity and a better batch of players can Dennis Allen finally prove his worth?

Since 1960, the Oakland Raiders have had a total of 18 head coaches. There hasn’t been a lot of continuity in head coaches for the Raiders and in recent years, most coaches have only spent a year or two with the team before moving on. Is there a lot to be said for continuity in coaching? Or is it more a function of the talent that is present on the team that sets a winning team...

McCarthy, Capers balance their visions for Packers defense

In the history of the National Football League, there have been dysfunctional relationships between a head coach and his assistants.

New Orleans head coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams qualify. They kept their...

Jason Campbell: Coach Killer

For the last five years, Jason Campbell’s head coach has gotten the axe at the end of the year. Zorn, Cable, Jackson, Smith, and now Chud. Of course this has a lot to do with the inherent nature of an NFL team that would look at Jason Campbell as an upgrade, but it also has a lot to do with Jason Campbell never getting a contract extension and being just good enough to make you...
