New Season, New Faces For 2016 Seattle Seahawks

NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, looks at the three newest members of the Seattle Seahawks and where they might fit into the Hawk’s plans– It’s hard to say for sure if Webb will be asked to take over at left tackle for the departed Russell Okung or if he’ll wind up playing guard in place of the departed J.R. Sweezy. Given the size of of Webb’s contract which makes him the highest paid offensive lineman on the Seahawks’ roster, I’d say he’s probably going to start someplace on that line.

Furbush Recovering Slowly Opens Door For Mike Montgomery

NWSB writer and Seattle Mariners insider, Brian Scott, looks at the M’s situation as they try to find a second lefty for their bullpen– It’s hard to believe that a guy who less than one year ago threw back to back, complete game shutouts for the Seattle Mariners could be headed out of Seattle. It was exactly the writing that appeared to be on the wall for M’s starter Mike Montgomery just a few days ago.

Seattle Mariners Spring Training Battles Heating Up

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, updates the M’s fifth rotation spot battle during 2016 Mariners spring training– The early results of Cactus League play for the Mariners suggest that James Paxton and Nate Karns are locked in a death struggle for the fifth spot in the M’s rotation. Both have just a pair of starts to judge them by so far but the early returns and numbers are interesting, to say the least.

Goodbye Matt Hasselbeck — Forever A Seahawk

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, discusses the legacy of Seahawks Icon Matt Hasselbeck who has announced his retirement from the NFL– When coach Holmgren introduced the Seahawk faithful to Matt Hasselbeck, everyone was at least a little suspicious. Hass was just a sixth round pick who hadn’t started an NFL game—seriously, THIS is the guy Holmgren expected to turn our franchise around?

Seahawks Changes Abound In NFL 2016 Free Agency

NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, highlights some key Seahawks losses during the first week of NFL free agency– Hands down, Brandon Mebane was the best interior defensive tackle the Seahawks had last year. It’s a shame that his departure has come as I hoped he’d finish his career playing for the Seahawks.

2016 NFL Draft Targets For The Seattle Seahawks

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, throws down his Seahawks 2016 NFL draft predictions — Analyzing who the Seattle Seahawks, led by the dynamic duo of Pete Carroll and John Schneider, might pick in the upcoming 2016 NFL draft is nearly an impossible task. These guys have their own, unique philosophy about the draft and who can really argue with it given their success?

Offensively, Center Field Will Be The Biggest Challenge For 2016 Seattle Mariners

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, looks closely at the situation surrounding the M’s newest center fielder– Center field for the Seattle Mariners is a position that will always be tied to hall of famer, Ken Griffey Jr. The things Junior did for this team are legendary. Legends often cast very large, dark shadows over their followers.

Three Seattle Seahawks Top 2016 Free Agent Targets

NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, looks at three NFL free agents the Seahawks might choose to target– With J.R. Sweezy a free agent himself, the Seahawks have an opportunity to improve at the right guard position, a position that has seen its most impressive play the last couple of years being equal to a spaghetti strainer.

Mariners Double Take—Paxton New Look, Walker New Pitch

NWSB writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, looks at the Walker and Paxton situation as the Mariners spring training gets underway– Paxton has long been in the 240-250lb range during his time in the Mariners organization. This year Paxton reported to camp with that number being less than 220. The change in Paxton’s physique has not gone unnoticed by his teammates or coaching staff either.

What Is Next For Seattle Mariners Catcher Mike Zunino?

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, discusses the Seattle Mariners new look at catcher and what the future holds for former starting catcher Mike Zunino– As to what exactly is wrong with Zunino, it’s probably not any one thing. He tends to chase pitches out of the zone. He’s easily fooled with breaking pitches. At times, he looks like he is clearly guessing that a certain pitch in a certain location is coming. Confidence is not something we see oozing from him these days either which leads me to believe he’s beating himself up inside his own mind as much as pitchers are doing to him at the plate.

The Un-happy Seattle Seahawks Contract Holders

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, discusses the possibilities of a second hold out by Kam Chancellor– I think it’s fair to say that Chancellor’s hold out did damage the Seahawks 2015 season. How much it damaged the Seahawks season is debatable but I think everyone would conclude that on some level, his absence and subsequent return, didn’t do anything good for the team.

Goodbye Marshawn — Best Beast Mode Moments

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, counts down his top five favorite Marshawn Lynch runs in the wake of the retirement of the legendary Seahawks running back– All good things must come to an end. I’m just glad that in the case of Seattle Seahawks running back, Marshawn Lynch, that it’s on his terms, and with his health intact.
