Uncertainty reigns in Seattle

Seahawks coach Jim Mora met with the media Wednesday, but he wasn’t overly forthcoming about the future of the team.  Because he doesn’t really know.

On his future: Mora hasn’t been told by CEO Ted Leiweke that he’s definitely returning.

On whether Sean Locklear can be the team’s left tackle next year: “I’m ready to say we’re going to make sure we evaluate the heck out of it.”

On priority areas of improvement: “It would be premature for me to make that statement,” Mora said.

Mora did say confidently that Matt Hasselbeck will return as the team’s starting quarterback.  Then again, Seattle’s next general manager may have something to say about that.

The G.M. search has been trimmed to four, according to Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network: Baltimore’s Eric DeCosta, Green Bay’s John Schneider, Arizona’s Steve Keim, and Eagles G.M. Tom Heckert.

Until the Seahawks select one as their next general manager, even Mora won’t truly know where he stands.

  1. Great. Another team possibly raiding the Ravens front office. Maybe if they sign DeCosta he will stay for more than half a season. Oh well, at least it is not the Browns again.

  2. What is so bad about Tom Heckert’s job that he’s a candidate for similar jobs in Cleveland and Seattle?

  3. Heckert’s contract beyond this season has yet to be renewed. There is also another guy, Roseman, a protege of Banner, who they likely want to elevate to that position. Heckert also doesn’t have final say, which is something that he is willing to change teams for.
