Seahawks winner No. 2 - Offensive line coach Andy Dickerson

Andy Dickerson followed offensive coordinator Shane Waldron from the Los Angeles Rams to the Seahawks. Dickerson has been the offensive line coach for a couple of years now, and he's had a tough task. He had to get 2022 rookies Charles Cross and Abraham Lucas ready and no other offensive line coach has had to do that in decades. Cross and Lucas weren't perfect, but they also weren't bad last year.

Currently, however, Dickerson is having to do without Cross and Lucas and yet he still seems to know how to get his offensive line ready to be the best they can. In 2022, Dickerson had to work with former Rams center Austin Blythe, but Blythe was too small and not strong enough to be the optimal person to play center for Seattle. In 2023, Seattle has Evan Brown and Brown has so far been a much better option.

But what Stone Forsythe and Jake Curhan were actually really good in Week 2. Maybe they have the talent to be starters for other teams, though they won't be with Seattle as long as the team has Cross and Lucas. But they aren't as good as they were against the Lions without Dickerson being their position coach.

Dickerson is working his way into leaving the Seahawks. I don't mean that he will get fired. That shouldn't happen. But some other team is going to snag Dickerson and make him an associate head coach or an offensive coordinator. Let's hope Seattle has Dickerson replacement already in mind.
