NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us his take today on how Pete Carroll and the 2013 Hawks coaching staff are doing on gamedays. This past week in Indianapolis we saw several coaching mistakes, and being the nice guys we are here at NWSB we’re doing to point them out. We don’t care how good you think Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch are…plus as far as the blocked field goal goes, that one was on Steven Hauschka.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott discusses the train wreck that has become the Mariners ownership folks. Namely Howard Lincoln who granted three interviews this week with Seattle Media’s Greg Johns, Jerry Brewer and Ryan Divish. Is he seriously giving Jack Zduriencik an “A” on his performance of scouting both professional and amateur players? Chone Figgins, Michael Pineda, Jesus Montero, David Pauley, Casper Wells…aye aye aye.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Mariners blogger Brian Scott weighs in today on the M’s 2013 season with his season rewind post. He says it’s another difficult season for the Mariners faithful was finally put to bed Sunday as the Mariners looked like a team ready to hit the links, losing 9-0 to the AL West Champion Oakland A’s. Michael Saunders hit a whopping .236. Nick Franklin, a mid season call up at 2nd base, finished the year hitting .225. Thank goodness for Felix Hernandez & Hisashi Iwakuma.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott discusses the train wreck (yes another one) that is the Mariners skipper situation. He throws out some possible names to replace Eric Wedge. Joey Cora, Bryan Price, and Robby Thompson could be in the running. He says when the dust settles, I believe the Mariners are going to go with Robby Thompson as their new manager. An obvious choice, but a smart choice.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott discusses the train wreck that has become the Mariners. With Manager Eric Wedge announcing last week that he will not return in 2014, it should be clear as crystal that the team is in a state of dysfunction that rivals Lindsay Lohan’s rehab progress. Maybe Paul Allen should add the Mariners to his list of teams alongside the Seahawks and Portland Trail Blazers.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us his take today on how WR Doug Baldwin of the Seahawks is doing. What in the world are the Seahawks going to do when Percy Harvin returns, Brian asks. In 2013 a healthy Baldwin has been an extremely productive Baldwin as he has been really messing with defensive coordinators’ minds so far in the Seahawks’ first three games.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott gives us his M’s player of the week. Michael Saunders. The Condor wins the prize this week. Brian says Saunders has that unique ability in the outfield to make the difficult plays look routine and the routine plays like he’s having a nap out there. It’s worth nothing that Saunders has committed just one error all year as a result. Over the past week Saunders has hit an impressive .364 (8 for 22) and also taken a walk 4 times.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us his reasons why he thinks its a possibility that the 2013 Seahawks could go undefeated in their NFL schedule. Why not? He asks. It’s certainly a real possibility if they can get through these next 4 tough ones on the road. At Texans, At Colts, At Cardinals, At Rams, are all coming up in the next 6 weeks .Let’s not forget we could have Percy Harvin back after this stretch too. Hang on for the ride.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott gives us three things to wonder about when it comes to the team. Cash heading into 2014 is going to be a focus, as nobody quite knows what to expect in free agency. The skipper situation is also uncertain, as Eric Wedge has yet to receive an extension. Finally, what in the world is up with Felix Hernandez? Let’s just hope he returns to form in 2014.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us three questions fans should still be asking themselves despite a strong start. Fiirst and foremost, we have to wonder if the team will see Percy Harvin in 2013. Sydney Rice, Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin make up a great trio of wide-outs, but Harvin is a matchup nightmare. Also, consistency on both sides of the ball is questionable. Cliff Avril returned against the 49ers, but Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin are still out.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott takes a look at the upcoming Week 2 2013 NFL matchup between our Hawks and the Colin Kaepernick led San Francisco 49ers. Early lines have the Seahawks by 3. After Seattle’s win over Carolina, there are several questions that will need to be addressed against a dangerous San Francisco squad. Will the Hawks be able to contain Kaep and will Russell Wilson get more time in the pocket?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Brian Scott gives you his ideal starting rotation for the 2014 Seattle Mariners. Right now Brian says that you have 3 players you can pencil in as starters: Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma, and Taijuan Walker. While James Paxton will likely be a starter as well, the Mariners should look towards free agency to fill the 5th spot in their 2014 rotation.
