When Kam Chancellor talks, 12s listen. Let’s hope that Seahawks owner Jody Allen likes what he says about the future of the team. I have a few ideas about what he might have to say myself.
It speaks volumes about the Seahawks season that the biggest story in weeks focuses on a player who retired four years ago. But when that player is Kam Chancellor, there’s every reason in the world for the 12s to take notice. Let’s hope that the Seahawks Chair Jody Allen is as interested in Kam’s thoughts as we are. We know she’s taken an active interest in the future of the team. I can’t imagine she wouldn’t want to meet with one of the best football minds ever associated with her team.
For the six people who haven’t heard this story, here’s the genesis. On December 28th, Seahawks legend Kam Chancellor put the following statement out on Twitter. The universe promptly exploded with speculation, as it should. For reference, as I write this, there are 12,300 likes, 1,570 retweets, 492 quotes, and as you can see, 639 replies. Those comments range from the sublime to the absolutely ridiculous. What a shock, right? Okay, so here’s Kam’s statement:
Kam Chancellor could mean anything about the Seattle Seahawks
This is hardly the first time we’ve discussed the possibilities of Kam Chancellor having a future role with the Seahawks. Among the comments are statements as ridiculous as Kam wants to clean house. As in fire the entire coaching staff including Pete Carroll. Several posts claim he wants to trade Russell Wilson and rebuild the Seahawks from scratch. Okay, those are possibilities, sure. It’s also possible that I’ll join NASA and be the first person to set foot on Mars. Just not very likely.
Kam Chancellor stating that he needs to have a discussion with the defacto owner of the Hawks isn’t quite the same as “We need to blow this team up”. Does anyone really think that Chancellor, of all people, would pull his punches? Please. If he thinks Pete Carrol needs to go, he’d say so. Same for trading Russell Wilson or any other decision. Let’s move on to what Kam might really want to discuss.
