NFL’s trusted insider, Adam Schefter, broke the news first on X. A second interview for Evero. Many are debating if they should really go for a DC as head coach. After all, they have one of the strongest defenses in the league. And if the 43-year-old decides to make Seattle his new nest, how much value will he be able to add?

Shouldn’t they hire a more offensive-minded coach for the position? Or could it be that they are looking to double down on their strengths? Whatever may be the case, Evero coming to the Seahawks can only do them good. He has a track record of just acing the defense game. They could compensate for their offense by going after offensive players during the NFL Draft of 2024. But what can Evero offer to the team as the HC, if he were to be selected?

Evero’s track record

Panthers’ radio broadcaster Anish Shroff couldn’t stop singing his praises. “Just in person, very impressive. When you meet with him, when you speak with him, he has the aura, has the presence of a head coach.” Ejiro’s got two years under his belt as a DC, and guess what? Both were pretty similar. In 2022, he was with the Broncos. They went 5-12, and let’s be real, the offense was a mess. But the defense? It was a solid eighth in yards allowed and 14th in points allowed.

“The other part – and this is to Ejiro’s credit – there were a lot of injuries. And with all the injuries and moving pieces and different parts coming in, it was kind of this bend but don’t break defense for most of the season, and then for the most part, it was bend but not break.” Can he help fix the Seahawks’ chances next season, should he come over?

One take at a time

I am a hardcore believer in the ?Mamba Mentality?, which certainly applies to the NFL. The sport is not just about physical prowess but also demands a powerful mindset. Growing up, I spent time with athletes on the neighborhood soccer field.
