In my story today, Rocky Seto has coached with Pete Carroll for 13 years, and has a new job title this season with the Seattle Seahawks – defensive passing game coordinator.

The unique job description encompasses a lot of things for the former USC linebacker, making him a big-picture guy on the defensive side of the ball for new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

“If I can help out in improving their teaching principles, or teaching methods, or any of their concepts and make them more concise, that’s kind of how I see my role,” Seto said. “It took me a little bit of an adjustment because of all those years in college, I was very hands-on. So it’s been kind of nice at the same time, because it has allowed me to take kind of a step back and see things from a global standpoint, and really kind of see it through (Coach Carroll’s) eyes, and the defensive coordinator’s eyes.”

    Best Rob Report Ever. Beast Mode is all business.

    That Jack Becta interview about injuries is a very good read.

    Defensive passing game coordinator–That’s a pretty nice gig with Sherman/Browner/Chancellor/Thomas and the rest to work with. I don’t even think that I could screw that up.

  4. Loved Clemons on the Real Rob Report.

  5. MoSeahawk12 says:

    C Michaels needs to get his crap together and grow up. I’m glad Clemons got on his ass about talking about smoking dope on camera. Not smart as you’re a rookie looking up at some talented running backs and the team doesn’t need any distractions. Clem as a team leader pretty much let him know to knock it off. I’m pretty surprised Real Rob kept that segment in the video. C Michaels was considered a risky pick due to previous injuries and character issues. He was suspended at Texas A&M for violating team rules.
    He needs to keep his head down, do the work and avoid adding negative attention to himself or the team.

    Now before anyone gets all fired up about him rapping a song that references “Mary Jane” and me making a big deal about it, here’s my thing. I don’t care what anybody does at home. Smoke, drink, live your life. We all have our deals. But the league goes after this stuff like crazy and there can’t be a lot of good that could come from this video. Love the Real Rob report and you can be assured, a lot of league people watch it and that could lead to some extra eyes that the team doesn’t need. I’m glad that Clem shut it down and I would think that Mike Rob as another team leader would have maybe said, hey man, we don’t need to be saying that. I mean these guys had a players only meeting after Bruce was suspended and basically said they each have to protect the team by being responsible.

    Off my soap box. Just hope these guys understand they have a real chance to go far if not all the way this year. I’m certain the majority do.

  6. Well said Mo…agreed

    No sign of Moffit this time. A good sign that maybe he’s taking care of business first, pleasure later.

  8. I get the impression that Moffitt has grown up a bit this year, much as Tate took a few years in the league to mature, and so did Lynch. Its all good. We are used to seeing some very young players on our team. They’re growing up and getting ready for the big time now.

  9. apologies in advance to Duke…

    Power rankings, usually meaningless filler, start becoming interesting this time of year. Jack Becta on has 1) Niners 2) Broncos 3) Seahawks 4) Falcons, but the interesting part is reviewing the injuries and questions each team is facing. Niners have problems in their secondary, Broncos lost their starting C, and we have some guys out.

    I’d have to call the Broncos the front runner right now until we see how they open the season. I’m glad we get to play them this week. Peyton Manning has three of the best receivers in the NFL, and he has something to prove. The first quarter will be a tough test for our D, especially while missing our starting pass rushers.

    Will Irvin or Avril play this week?

  10. doubledink says:

    I chuckled when I read that Moffit changed his diet this offseason. Maybe that’s why he wanted people posting twitter pics of the great food they were eating!

    Love the Real Rob Report. It’s nice to get a brief glimpse into the locker room. Also you get to see the person behind the numbers.

    But I do have to say, it is telling that every other comment is about money, who’s getting paid, how much they are getting paid…

    Yes, it’s a business, but wow! Eye opener.

  12. I heard Moffitt on with Brock and Danny this morning. Brock asked about the way the offensive line plays and how the Hawks really pound the ball at opposing teams. Specifically, he asked if Moffitt ever noticed when they broke the other team’s will. Moffitt specifically referenced the Dallas game last year, then the second Arizona and SF games. It was a very interesting interview and worth listening to the podcast. Moffitt seemed a bit toned down, but still one of the better interviews on this team.

    Didn’t Seto have that job title last season, too?
