NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks important win over the 49ers if they are to keep their playoff chances alive– A starting NFL corner should be able to handle a tight end. Cary Williams was not up to the task in this one. He was replaced during the third quarter for precisely this reason.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks fifth, fourth quarter meldown of 2015– Yes, the bad offense contributes to the bad defense but the reverse is true as well. The Seahawks simply cannot start pointing fingers at one another if they expect to find a way to turn things around. Like Wilson, the defense just has to play better and not allow as many big plays and points.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks’ NFC West showdown against the Cardinals this Sunday– At 4-4, the Seahawks need this win at home against the Cardinals who lead the Seahawks by two games in the standings if they are to have any chance at another divisional crown. It won’t be easy however as the Cardinals are playing some of the best football we’ve seen from them in a very long time.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, recaps the Seahawks win in Dallas– Everyone knows that Wilson is capable of making every throw he missed in this game accurately and on time. I had assigned some of the blame for Wilson’s struggles this year throwing on the constant pounding he’s hand to endure due to the lack of solid play from his offensive line. I don’t think you can blame the O-line in this game as the line gave up zero sacks of Wilson
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks as they head to Dallas looking for some payback– Wilson has been downright awful at dealing with the blitz in 2015. There’s a failure on his part to recognize the blitz and react to it either with a quicker release, checking into a hot read pass, or checking into a run.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, critiques the Seahawks victory over the 49ers on Thursday night– Despite the win, this was not a good night for Russell Wilson. His two interceptions were both in the “really bad” category as far as his decision making is concerned. Both times his receivers were covered by two or more defenders. There was no need to force either of those throws and keep the 49ers hopes alive.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks Thursday Night matchup against the 49ers– It’s likely that neither of these situations have the Seahawks players that are involved legally at fault for anything criminal at this point. Still, they were there, it happened, it’s on the news and it needs to not happen anymore. All these things serve as a distraction and take away the focus the team needs now, more than ever.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reacts to the Seahawks latest 4th quarter meltdown– The Seahawks are still struggling covering their opponent’s tight ends. Greg Olson had a big day against the Seattle defense. In the past, Chancellor and KJ Wright have always done an excellent job in this regard but this year has been a different story. Kevin Pierre-Louis filled in for Wright in this one and did not fare any better. Despite the struggles of those players, it was Seattle’s best two defenders, Richard Sherman and Thomas who blew the coverage of Olson for the game winning touchdown.
NWSB Writer, and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks hosting the Panthers on Sunday– No more meltdowns—that’s the easy way to write up what the Seahawks need to do better defensively. After leading 24-7 in the fourth quarter last week, the defense got soft and allowed the Bengals to tie the game, then win it in overtime. That just can’t happen.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reacts to the Seahawks stunning loss to the Bengals– A dominant defense. Smart, big plays on offense. Defensive touchdowns. It all added up to type of Seattle Seahawks game we are used to seeing from this team with one exception. They forgot that they are supposed to play four quarters, not three.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reviews the Seahawks questionable win over the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football– The fact is, every team gets breaks on calls and bad breaks on others. The officials, both replacement and regular, are human and make mistakes. They miss calls and I, for one, don’t want to review every play of every game. I would argue that bad calls are actually good for the game as they create discussion, controversy, and give guys like me stuff to write about.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews NFL Week 5 for the Seattle Seahawks– On deck for the Hawks is a trip to Cincinnati to face the undefeated Bengals. This is not going to be an easy game for Seattle, especially with their inconsistent play thus far and the fact that the Bengals will likely be looking at this game as a game that can legitimize their place as an NFC power in the conference.
