Steve Kelley blames Gibbs quitting on Bates

"But probably Bates' fatal mistake was never finding a common ground with offensive line coach Alex Gibbs. Their preseason clashes led to Gibbs quitting a week before the season, an unforgivable distraction." I'm not sure where the information is coming from (leak or speculation) but it doesn't jibe with what I'd heard about the situation. Danny O'Neil says he tried long and hard to get Gibbs take on the resignation and never really got close. There's also this: "The lack of progress shown by rookie wide receiver Golden Tate was a source of frustration to the Seahawks, and much of the blame for that was placed on Bates." EDIT: Refuted by Carroll in today's press conference (notes transcribed in comments).
