  NFC Playoff Picture: Analyzing the Matchups Not since the 2011 Giants has an NFC team outside of the top two seeds run the table to make it to the Super Bowl. The last five NFC champions (2012 49ers, 2013 and 2014 Seahawks, 2015 Panthers and 2016 Falcons) were all among the clear-cut best in their conference all season long, and their appearance in that season’s Super Bowl wasn’t surprising.

The Seattle Seahawks are looking to make a number of changes this offseason and one could be completely revamping the entire offensive system.

After an anemic offensive performance in 2017 that led to a 9-7 record and the firing of veteran offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and offensive line coach Tom Cable, the Seahawks may embrace an offensive style from the college ranks.

If at first you don't succeed in the NFL, take it down a notch.

Report: Seahawks Fire OC Darrell Bevell

  Report: Seahawks Fire OC Darrell Bevell The Seattle Seahawks have fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, according to multiple media reports. Bevell spent the last seven seasons heading up the Seattle offense, and was told of the team's decision to let him go on Tuesday night, Pro Football Talk reports.

With almost half of the most highly paid Seahawks players under contract for just one season left, what kind of reset could we see next season ? Adam and Brandan explore if Seattle has the same ability to make the kind of changes that can help make it so just about any running back can have success.

The Seahawks ’ offense will also be getting back some key players from injury next season If Jimmy Graham can come back fully healthy, he will be a big factor in the Seahawks ’ offense . If Graham isn’t ready to go at the start of the season , then Luke Willson will fill in nicely for him.

It may seem like a bizarre move, but the Seahawks have the personnel to do it and it revolves around Russell Wilson under center. He's one of the NFL's top dual-threat quarterbacks and even led the Seahawks in rushing last season.

Utilizing his strengths to the full advantage like we saw in college could help turns things around.

None of this starts without an offensive coordinator and the Seahawks could be targeting one of the top minds in Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo. His success working with Carson Wentz has made him a top candidate for an OC job this offseason.

Given that his contract expires after this season, it would be the perfect time for the Seahawks to make a move.

After Chip Kelly's spread offense at Oregon made waves in the college ranks during the late 2000's, just about every team implements something similar. We've yet to really see that make it's way into the NFL, even though the young quarterbacks are being developed to play this way.

The Seahawks were just one win away from the postseason with the down year in 2017. Think how much things could change with an improved offense. What will Pete Carroll decide on?

Earl Thomas doubles down on holdout talk .
Earl Thomas‘ second Seahawks contract raised the bar for safeties, but that four-year, $40M extension has been since surpassed by several players. And it’s only good through the 2018 season. This status has caused the perennial All-Pro to reassess his standing in Seattle. After broaching a holdout earlier this week, Thomas doubled down on Saturday, telling Jane Slater of NFL.com he doesn’t see himself rejoining his Seahawks teammates without a long-term deal (Twitter link).“I won’t allow myself to even go out there and just risk it all if they’re not having faith in me in a long-term deal,” Thomas said at the Pro Bowl.
