The offense: What about Player calling?

I know that I have been a basher of Holmgren's predictable play calling and slammed his conservative and sometimes limited playbook. Now, however, it seems we've traded the focused conservative mostly predictable approach for a wide open somewhat large unfocused and some what confused playbook that seems to change week to week and doesn't stick with anything long enough to see if it can work on a regular basis.

The best teams don't build playbooks on chalkboards. They build them around a scheme and within that scheme they build it around players. Brian Westbrook made the offense go in Philly. Dallas Clark and Reggie Wayne are the focus in Indy. Reggie Bush was the focus of the construction of the playbook in New Orleans. The concepts that Norv Turner uses in San Diego is all about calling Antonio Gates number.

Who on Seattle's offense is that player? Who are they trying to build their concepts around? Are the Seahawks just going week to week and seeing what sticks? It seems to me with the arrival of Marshawn Lynch maybe that does it? I hate this offense right now, because while all the offensive play calling looks cute and everyone is getting a shot at the ball you aren't building up playmakers. Golden Tate and Forsett are proven to be able to play well in space with the ball in their hands.

So just where is the Player calling on offense?
