NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us a review of the Packers/Seahawks game from Week 1 and his watch list for their matchup in the NFC Championship Sunday. The Beast Mode-esk Eddie Lacy is the real deal for the Packers. The Seahawks have to contain the powerful runner which will be no easy task. Given Rodgers’ troubles with his leg I actually expect the Packers will try to establish Lacy early and often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the Seahawks playoff win over the Panthers. For the Seahawks, it means that they advance to the NFC Championship game. The Hawks will play host to the Green Bay Packers a team they beat all the way back in Week 1 of the NFL Season. For the Panthers, it means it’s time to go home.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider Brian Scott shares his memories of Randy Johnson who was elected to the MLB Hall of Fame Tuesday. No, no, no, the best pitch Randy threw was Mr. Snappy. That was nickname of his unbelievably deadly slider, oh, that by the way was a slider that he threw at 92 mph. Are you kidding me? A 92 mph slider? There a lot of guy starting games today that can’t throw a fastball that hard let alone a slider.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks first playoff game of the 2014 NFL Season. Carolina has to take some shots in this one and the Seahawks need to be ready for it. Newton is a bit banged up so he may not be as mobile as he normally is which is yet another reason I expect the Panthers will go deep and do so often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks NFC West Championship clinching victory over the St. Louis Rams. I have never seen Wilson take as many hard hits as did in this game. To his credit, he got up every time. Wilson hasn’t missed a game or any significant playing time due to injury in his entire three year career. I guess we can add toughness and durability to the long list of reasons to love this guy.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider breaks down the M’s off season moves so far and what likely lies ahead for their roster. Seriously, if you won’t trade Walker or Paxton for Kemp or Upton why would you give either of them up for Zobrist? It makes no sense to make this deal if you are the Mariners unless the price is significantly less than giving up Walker or Paxton.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider gives us his preview of the Seahawks’ final regular season game of 2014 against the Rams. The Seahawk’s offensive line was better last week. I’m not saying they look like a pro bowl unit or anything but they did play better last week against a good Arizona blitzing defense than they did two weeks ago against a fading 49ers defense.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks decisive victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Had this run occurred in Seattle I have no doubt that UW would have been registering seismic activity coming from Century Link yet again. Instead, this run silenced what had been a boisterous Cardinal crowd. Lynch finished with 113 yards, two touchdowns on just 10 carries.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his watch list of the Seahawks upcoming showdown with the Arizona Cardinals. This is a very odd situation to say the least. I can’t remember seeing a 3rd string QB start for any team in a game this big, ever. Fortunately, Lindley does have some playing time in his career so we can get a small sample of what he can and cannot do as an NFL quarterback.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider Brian Scott gives us the latest on the M’s search for a right fielder. I really think that filling this role from within is exactly where this right field situation is headed for the Mariners. The good news is that they do have options, options that I prefer to signing a guy who is finished, or over paying for a guy who is not, via trade.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his breakdown of the Seahawks home victory over the 49ers. I never like it when the officiating gets in the way of a big rivalry game like this. While the Seahawks got a TD instead of a chip shot FG thanks to that bad call I still don’t think that call changed the game’s outcome. The 49ers never scored again in multiple attempts after that play.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at the the Seahawks key meeting at home with their division foe, the San Francisco 49ers. The only thing missing in this matchup is that the game means less to the 49ers than it does the Seahawks in terms of their own playoff contention. I guarantee you that the 49ers would love nothing better than to come into Century Link and mess up Seattle’s playoff plans.
