Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell has plenty of experience preparing for Green Bay, having spent five seasons as the offensive coordinator for the Packers NFC North rival, the Minnesota Vikings, from 2006 to 2010.
Bevell also began his NFL coaching career as an offensive quality control assistant for Green Bay in 2000, eventually serving as quarterbacks coach from 2003 to 2005.
Specifically, Bevell’s gone up against Green Bay defensive coordinator Dom Capers four times in 2009 and 2010.
So what can he expect from a defense that currently leads the league in sacks with 11, and created the most turnovers in 2011?
“The thing that jumps out right way is their ball hawking,” Bevell said. “They get after the ball. I think he’s led the league a number of times in interceptions. They really do a good job of getting after the football, attacking it when it’s in the air.
“Also, they can pressure you. They can give you a lot of different looks. He’s been around forever. He’s seen every defense, and he’s probably tried every one, so I think he just kind of has a mixed back that he can draw on and go to.”
