Seahawks Fire Tom Cable

The house cleaning continues in Seattle. The Seahawks have canned offensive line coach Tom Cable, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times (on Twitter). Tom Cable (vertical)

Cable follows offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell out the door. The Seahawks struggled mightily in terms of offensive protection and the running game this year – the two areas that Cable was in charge of – so his dismissal does not come as a huge surprise.

The Seahawks’ O-Line has been a glaring weakness for years now, and costly moves such as this year’s acquisition of Duane Brown have done little to help matters. The Seahawks are moving in a totally different direction in an effort to better shield Russell Wilson and give their running game a jump start.

The Seahawks may also be parting ways with defensive coordinator Kris Richard.

    Not a Seahawks fan, I actually despise them lol but I gotta say that I am not a fan of the moves they are making. I think they are getting old on defense and their O Line is terrible. It’s not the assistants faults that they are firing or letting leave, it’s whoever is drafting or signing players faults.

      Started with trading Max Unger for a TE after just winning a Super Bowl. They are old and injured on defense for sure.

    First Steve Hutchison, Max was 2.0 they have a pattern of letting talented lineman leave for some reason. They have missed on a lot of draft picks for lineman. Need better scouting something

      They didnt “let” Steve leave. Vikings basically stole him, do some research and look up “poison pill”.

        Shoulda gave Steve the franchise tag instead of transition, Alexander did nothing after getting paid

    The Seahawks are now Goodfellas and Pete Carroll is Jimmy Conway.

    Cable had enough pull in the draft room to set the OL board due to past success. He focused on measurables instead on sight talent. He failed to help pick the guys and could not develop them. Please go to a divisional rival….

    Cable wanted guys with a nasty streak so he went after DL and tried to convert them to OL then the OL they did draft turned out to be soft. Okung was hurt a lot and had a lot of penalties and Ifedi led the league in penalties this year. Those two were both high picks and both are quasi busts. I am not sure how Okung did with the Chargers this year but what I saw of him with the Broncos last year looked like with Seattle maybe even a little better. Not surprised to see Cable gone.
