A Wisconsin Viking fans take on Darrell Bevell

As a Badger fan I got to watch Bevell for 4 years as a player and though he was not the most physically gifted QB

he was a coaches QB in that he is a student of the game. Kudo's to Barry Alverez for knowing this and getting

him to UW when he had scholarship offers from Northern Az. and Utah.

      At the time Wisconsins football program was a mess and Alverez made Bevell the starter not so much

for his physical prowess but rather his knowledge and vision of the field.

    The payoff on that move by Alverez was a victory in the Rose Bowl over UCLA  followed the next season

by a victory over Duke in the Hall of fame bowl.    Again, this was a result of his Knowledge and understanding

of the game and Alverez knowing this and trusting Bev's to be the man.

       Bev's started coaching right out of college including stints at Iowa State and Connecticut before

joining the Packers.

       It bothers me to no end that so many folks at DN thought of him as a yes man for Chilly.

Chilly wouldn't keep his mitts off the playbook and after he was fired Bevell showed some creativity

even though Hutch was out injured there was no bookend to go with Sydney Rice.

      I just cant help but feel that if your coach gives him some breathing room it will pay dividends.

My one concern would be if Bevell can be demanding enough if need be.

      I'm not sure of the status of a lot of your players but ....I have a feeling that if Justin Forsett is

around his role may increase not so much as a feature back but as the utility/all around back

something on the order of what Chester Taylor was to AD.

    Any time Ive seen the Seahawks I found myself kinda focusing on Forsett....Just took a liking

to the guy for some reason and hope Bev's can justify that feeling.

    Anyway, that's my take and if you wouldn't be to bothered by my popping up once in a while,

I would like to follow Bev's future to see if my beliefs are justified or not.

Good luck  to the Seahawks and you the loyal fanbase.
