NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jordin Ereth makes five bold predictions about the remainder of the M’s season.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Jordin Ereth talks about Seattle’s 2nd round draft pick Christine Michael. There are a few ways to react to this pick. One way is to question it like every other analyst seems to do whenever Pete and John make a selection in the early rounds. Or, you could go with the seemingly more popular “I have faith in the front office, considering their track record in previous drafts.” Jordin, however, tries to get inside the genius of Pete and John.
NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars’ blogger Jordin Ereth talks about Marquess Wilson being selected by the Chicago Bears in the 2013 NFL Draft. Everyone with a pulse is aware of Wilson’s disastrous departure from Washington State last fall, and because of that his stock was guaranteed to slip. But 236th? That’s no slip, that is a plummet.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jordin Ereth weighs in on the up and coming prospect in the Mariners prospect system Brad Miller.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us his reasons why Russell Wilson is Seattle’s first FRANCHISE quarterback. He says the Seahawks have had Jim Zorn, Matt Hasselbeck, and Dave Krieg. All had great careers, but were never really considered “franchise quarterbacks.” Russell Wilson will surpass them all. With his time spent in the film room, it wouldn’t surprise to see a career passer rating in the triple digits either. Watch out record books.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us his top three candidates for the backup QB spot left empty when Matt Flynn was traded to the Oakland Raiders. Josh Portis is expected to re-sign. Tyler Thigpen leads Jordin’s list of hopeful replacements. He looks to be the least flashy, and most like Russell Wilson’s style of play. The others are two former players Pete Carroll has had some serious man crushes on, Vince Young, and Matt Leinart.
NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars basketball blogger Jordin Ereth gives us a somber reminder of what NCAA sports are all about with this piece about departing seniors Brock Motum, and Mike Ladd. While Motum started slow and developed into the threat he is today, Ladd had some promising upside before injuries took the front seat. Both will be sorely missed over at Wazzu, but with the recruits Ken Bone has in store, a winner might not be too far over the horizon.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth gives you his reasoning why your Hawks should take a run at the Honey Badger. Tyrann Mathieu has killed his draft stock due to his off-field issues and disappointing combine results.

Jordin is not saying we should reach on him, but if he is available…Pete Carroll & John Schneider are you listening?
NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars basketball blogger Jordin Ereth talks about how WSU head coach Ken Bone may not see himself as coach of the Cougs for much longer.
