Brian “The Boz” Bosworth, Dan McGwire, Rick Mirer, Chris McIntosh and Aaron Curry make the list. Marcus Tubbs nearly made the list as well. Let’s just hope that the Seahawks don’t add to this list for a very long time. We’ll see how Christine Michael pans out soon enough.
NWSB Insider and Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us a good piece on the Seattle Seahawks today. FS Earl Thomas is under the spotlight. On Monday morning, just hours before the Seahawks took on the Packers at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington, Earl Thomas’ significant other, Nina “Colada” went into labor. Earl Thomas was at Seahawks stadium preparing to play the Green Bay Packers. That’s commitment to team.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Thursday night at Century Link Stadium in Seattle when the Raiders visit the Seahawks in NFL preseason action. Brett says he wants to see Charly Martin step on the field and ball out.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back today Less than 1 week until the 2012 NFL Draft. We all know you can’t evaluate a draft until at least three years after said draft. So in saying that let’s recap the 2009 Seahawks draft class today. Aaron Curry, Max Unger, Deon Butler, Cameron Morrah are the only names that even need to be talked about. Thanks Tim Ruskell.
Seahawks insider Brett Bivens brings us his explanation of Alabama Crimson Tide pass rushing outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw could be the perfect pick for the Seattle Seahawks in the 2012 NFL Draft. With the 12th pick in the draft, the Seahawks can grab one of the best players from any position. Come the 26th of April I could very easily be writing a piece about how he fits or does not fit what the Seahawks are trying to do.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Insider Steve weighs in on the signing of Matt Flynn. Which he says gives the Seahawks flexibility in spades. Not only do they have their QB of the future, but now there is no need to waste valuable 2012 NFL Draft picks. Use the draft to fill in the holes that remain at left guard, defensive end, and linebacker. If Visanthe Shiancoe decides to sign elsewhere maybe tight end.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens tells us last season the Seahawks drafted KJ Wright which allowed them to cut ties with the grossly underperforming Aaron Curry. Seattle also drafted Malcolm Smith. This year the Seahawks have to decide if they want to bring back LeRoy Hill and David Hawthorne. Free agent Curtis Loftin is an option and will turn 25 before the start of the season.
Seahawks insider Brandon Choate breaks out his red sharpie today in his newest piece. He is handing out his end-of-the-year grades to the Seattle Seahawks defense. How will Pro Bowlers Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor and Brandon Browner fare? And how will up and comers like K.J. Wright and Richard Sherman score?
A list of my top 5 Seattle Seahawks roster moves this season based solely on my opinion of the way they have effected the team this season as well as the impact they will have in the future. For starters with Aaron Curry traded rookie linebacker KJ Wright has been able to emerge. Zach Miller has been a force as a blocker. A Pete Carroll & Tom Cable coaching staff is SWEET.
