Brian Schottenheimer is NFL head coach again and Seattle fans are here to wake up Jacksonville.
Seattle Seahawks fans knew it was time to leave Brian Schottenheimer after the NFC Wild Card Round. With a thumbless Jared Goff, the Los Angeles Rams tossed 155 yards and a touchdown that gave them a 30-20 win.
After trading two picks for the first round for Jamal Adams and improving their defense, a quick playoff exit was in their future. Pete Carroll finished and Schottenheimer was fired the following week.
Now he will try again to help a crime.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed with Schottenheimer to become the team’s pass game coordinator for the 2020 season. The 47-year-old will work under the new Jaguars’ head coach, Urban Meyer, and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
For those who may not know, Schottenheimer replaced Bevell in Seattle after the 2017 season.
Overall, there is a lot to like in Schottenheimer’s role. His 19 years of experience shows the varied types of crime that have escalated over the years. Seattle fans should send a word of caution to Duval County before the start of 2021, however.
The Schottenheimer-Seattle fights in the second half raise questions
As the 2020 season started, many believed Russell Wilson was going to lose the MVP. The team was scorching offensive and the temporary attack wasn’t going to stop. However, in week 17, it’s like Wilson is the biggest problem for Seattle’s chance for a Lombardi title.
Statically speaking, Schottenheimer got the best out of Wilson during his three-year stint. In 2019, the Seahawks gunslinger threw 31 touchdowns against just five interceptions and finished the race with a QBR rating of 106.3.
In 2020, Wilson threw the best 40 career touchdowns and a career high of 68.8 percent of passes. He also threw a career worst 13 interceptions.
The Jaguars are expected to draw the Clemson superstar Trevor Lawrence. Schottenheimer, who became known as the quarterback coach, will play a role in developing the team with the former Tigers’ passer.
For every great piece Lawrence does, there’s a bad one in the wings with Schottenheimer’s presence. Seattle fans know this way too well. Getting Schottenheimer another chance is fantastic for his resume, but will it be good for the future of the Jaguar Offensive?
