NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his game balls for the Seahawks week 4 game against the Houston Texans. Marshawn Lynch takes it home on offense, Richard Sherman on defense and Steven Hauschka on special teams. These 3 made huge contributions to help the Seahawks overcome an early deficit to win.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his weekly love em and hate from this week’s game against the Texans. The offense was shaky, but made the few plays but made the plays necessary to lead the team to victory. The defense didn’t allow a point in the second half and Richard Sherman made the game deciding play for Seattle with a pick six.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger JD Burke takes a look at some of the personnel matchups that will decide Sunday’s game in Houston as the Seahawks face the Texans. Could this be a preview of an eventual Super Bowl? It’s too hard to tell, but if it is, the matchups highlighted in this article will provide valuable insight into who has the upper-hand. Deandre Hopkins vs. Richard Sherman is a key matchup to watch this morning.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Giving game balls to Andrew Haris, Adam Bighill and Paul McCallum. Honourable mentions to Nick Moore and Courtney Taylor on offense, while Cody Parks and Solomon Elimimian made plays on defense. Bottom line, this was the most impressive defensive showing of the year from the Lions.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Sunday when the Seahawks look to go 4-0 for the first time team history vs. the Texans in Houston. Jordin says Houston is 9th in the league in rush defense, so with a battered offensive line is going to be very difficult to get Marshawn Lynch going. Richard Sherman will NOT slack off by any means against the 6-time pro bowler Andre Johnson.
NWSB Editor Bryant Knox evaluates the 100/1 odds the Portland Trail Blazers have been given to win the 2014 championship (via Bovada.lv). For fans looking to put money down on Portland, understand that the odds are against you. This team is young and inexperienced, and quite frankly, Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge are hardly the stars that LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are for the Miami Heat. That said, if you’re feeling optimistic, you can focus on the fact that Nicolas Batum has a chance to round out Rip City’s Big Three, and that CJ McCollum, Mo Williams and Thomas Robinson will be solid additions to the bench.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the announcement that the Mariners have accepted Eric Wedge’s resignation after three years in the Emerald City. Though he will finish out the season with the club, Wedge will be gone after Seattle’s final series with the Athletics after compiling a less-than-stellar 212-271 record while managing the M’s. A replacement has yet to be named.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Kevin “The Flying V” Vanstone is back today to tell us the Vancouver Canucks have made another round of cuts following last night’s final pre-season game against the New York Rangers. Bo Horvat and Hunter Shinkaruk are in.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us this week’s moment in time. The last time Seattle headed to Houston, it wasn’t pretty. While Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson tore up the Seahawks, Matt Hasselbeck fumbled his way to a mediocre performance.

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater brings us his weekly Lions matchup preview. This week BC takes on Winnipeg on the road YET again. Phil points out the BC secondary, led by Dante Marsh should just be poised and keep everything in front of them. Which is how they succeeded against the Riders. Last week Winnipeg gave up over 20 consecutive points before falling to Edmonton in overtime. No doubt they’ll be licking their wounds.
