A head coach who adapts

I found the below article on profootballtalk.com.

I'm not a big USC fan and didn't like Carroll when he was with the Trojans. However, I do like the way he's been running things with Seattle - sticking to his own plan, his own draft evaluations and actually having a real, open QB competition.

It's interesting to read about a head coach quickly recognizing his teams struggles, looking at another team for guidance and making immediate adjustments. Meanwhile in KC ...

"Following the Seattle Seahawks Week 4 loss to the St. Louis Rams, head coach Pete Carroll was in search of answers for an offense that was struggling to find production.

The Seahawks were converting just 28-percent of their third down opportunities for the season and quarterback Russell Wilson had just thrown three interceptions in a 19-13 loss to the Rams. Wilson and the Seattle passing game had yet to throw for more than 160 yards in a game and Seattle had failed to score more than 20 points in three of their first four games.

Carroll decided to take a look at the success the Washington Redskins and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan were having with fellow rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III at the helm. Carroll went to school on how the Redskins were using Griffin and how they were relying heavily on the read-zone option offense that Griffin ran while at Baylor.

“I was impressed with how much they got out of it,” Carroll said.”…They’re way ahead of everybody else in terms of their commitment to a really college style of offense and it’s been very effective,” Carroll said.

In the weeks since, Seattle has added more read-option to their offense and Wilson’s productivity has taken sizable steps forward. Wilson has thrown for nine touchdowns with just four interceptions over the last five games and has three games with a passer rating of 96.8 or better. Success getting the ball in the end zone has improved as well as the Seahawks have scored touchdowns on six of their last eight red zone possessions.

Seattle has been able to continue to have success running the football with Marshawn Lynch out of the shotgun and mixing in their more traditional run game as well. While Wilson isn’t the athlete Griffin is, he does have the capability to run the zone-read option well enough to make defenses honest. Seattle then found success running play-action off the read-option to find completions down field against the Minnesota Vikings last week.

“It was a good move for me and it’s helped up a little bit,” Carroll said. “I was influenced a little bit more than I thought when I first looked at. You see some of our stuff coming to life and it’s helping us.”"

I was reading about Seattle's defensive scheme.

It's a one gap system in which the strong side DE is the only player who two gaps. It's all heavily based on, but modified from, Monte Kiffin's over/under magic he worked in Tampa and nebraska.

Dont' care about their O, but I love the D he's put together over there in such a short period of time.

I've seen some stuff after their games. It looked to me like Carroll is as surprised as anyone , how well they are doing. I think Seattle is running on a lot of blind luck.

GB was lucky, but they played well enough to put them in position to throw a jump ball for the win. Beating the Cowboys, Pats and Vikings were quality wins.

How nice would it be for someone in KC, anyone, to say "Cassel was struggling, so we looked around and saw team X having success. We incorporated some of that and his production jumped"?

Actually, it would be nice to show they aren't morons, it wouldn't be nice to tweak Cassel and get better production because Pioli would jizz all over that with a 5 year contract extension.
