NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Seattle’s sloppy and narrow victory over the St. Louis Rams on Monday Night Football. Heading into St. Louis as 13-point favorites, the Hawks and their depleted offensive line couldn’t get anything going but still managed to rack up just enough points to slip past an ailing Rams team. It was an ugly win, but the Seahawks will take it. Golden Tate, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, and Paul McQuistan are front and center.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson predicts the remainder of Seattle’s season on the gridiron. Already having played seven games and establishing an impressive 6-1 record, the Hawks are looking like the team many thought they would be. As the season progresses Seattle will look to only get better, and the addition of Percy Harvin will help with that. Look for the Seahawks to mimic their hot start throughout the rest of the season, perhaps only dropping one more game this year.

A replacement has yet to be named.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson recaps Seattle’s latest series against the Kansas City Royals. Far out of any playoff race, the Mariners made sure to leave their effort on the field as they took 2-of-3 from a team still looking to contend for a postseason berth. James Paxton was stellar, Justin Smoak came through in the clutch, and Hisashi Iwakuma was better than ever. Nice to see Mike Zunino and Michael Saunders swinging the bat right now too.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson recaps Seattle’s series in Detroit against the Tigers.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson recaps Seattle’s series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Seattle’s series against the Houston Astros and how it ended up in a disappointing home sweep. Playing the last-place team in the AL West and a team they should have been able to handle easily, the Mariners were outmatched by Houston’s bats and they just couldn’t get anything going on the offensive side of the ball. Seattle now travels to St. Louis to take on the Cardinals.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the top play from Seattle’s close win over the Carolina Panthers. With the running game stifled by a stout front-seven of Carolina, Russell Wilson was called upon to attack the Panthers through the air. With time winding down and the Hawks down 7-6, Wilson needed to engineer a drive in the fourth quarter to ensure a victory for Seattle. That’s when Jermaine Kearse stepped up big.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the Ducks’ blowout over Virginia and hands out his game balls to three players who were very impressive in their position groups. While De’Anthony Thomas could have taken home the offensive game ball as well, Mariota’s ability to scramble and flash his top speed earned him the offensive game ball while Derrick Malone stepped up on defense and Alejandro Maldonado was impressive on special teams.
