Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with another installment of the Seahawks Week That Was. Intended to be a fun column, with lots of laughs and other good stuff. Normally it will be a top 10 list, a la David Letterman style. The last one of the year kids. Not exactly a good way to go out, but it was a wild ride, just like much of the 2012 Seattle Seahawks football season. Russell Wilson gets snubbed in the ROY votes, coaches trying to poach our staff, and should we have tried for the FG to win the game? All that and more in the final “week that was” installment for this year.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Bryan McFarlane gives you the reasons why the Seahawks were NOT able to handle the Falcons this past Sunday. He says Pete Carroll has a great thing going and the next few seasons are sure to be entertaining and very successful. But Sunday nobody stepped up in Chris Clemons absence. The Seattle pass rush was non-existant. Matt Ryan had to much time. Where was Bruce Irvin? Sigh…
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell tells us about the playoff divisional game for the Seahawks, a Sunday morning matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. No team is as hot right now as the Seahawks are. Coming in winning 6 in a row, and fresh off a road playoff win for the first time in 3 decades, are ready to take on the #1 seed Falcons. But, this is by far the best offense that the Hawks have faced in quite some time. Still, a win is predicted for the Seahawks.
NWSB Insider Reggie Gill brings us his analysis of the Seattle Seahawks RT position going into the 2012 season. With James Carpenter, the Seahawks first round pick in 2011, still not ready to go 100%, the Hawks will have to rely on surprise tackle Breno Giacomini. Giocomini has himself a brand new two year contract, and is ready to be the RT of the future for the Seahawks. Frank Omiyale is ready to go too.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Matt Church weighs in with a Seahawks post about his predictions for five Seahawks that were injured last year. John Moffit was huge last year to the run game, another big name that missed almost the entire year was WR Sidney Rice. He is injury prone, that we knew, but can he be the big name player that the Seahawks signed as a free agent two summers ago?
NWSB Insider Brandon Choate brings us big news out of the University of Washington. Washington just announced it’s 2012 Hall of Fame class and it included two Husky football legends in Lawyer Milloy and Dave Hoffmann. Both Milloy and Hoffmann had stellar careers at Washington, setting records and helping the team to roll to national titles and Rose Bowls.
OSU Writer and Beavers junkie Rick Stella gives his thoughts on what James Rodgers may have to do to get through training camp with the Atlanta Falcons of the NFL. Out of OSU came Rodgers, but went undrafted at the recent NFL draft due to teams being worried about his reconstructed knee. What does the future hold for Rodgers, and how cool is it he’s playing with his brother?
Seahawks insider Brett Bivens brings us news of a Seattle Seahawks signing this off season. Offensive lineman Frank Omiyale, most recently with the Chicago Bears, has agreed to a one year deal with the Seahawks. After earning the nickname Gate 68, he is ready to come to Seattle and prove he can get the job done.
Brandon Choate breaks down the week 4 matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons as the Seahawks fell just short of teir second win of the season. Despite the loss, Brandon says that the Seahawks came away with a much more important victory. Tarvaris Jackson had a career day, going 25/38 for 319 yards and 3 touchdowns…
Brett Bivens one of our Seattle Seahawks writers wonders what Pete Carroll was thinking on Sunday vs. the Atlanta Falcons. Instead of going for it on fourth down, Carroll sent out Kicker Steven Hauschka for the lengthy 61 yard Field goal attempt. Hauschka’s career long is 54 yards. The longest kick ever made at Seattle’s stadium is 55 yards. You do the math…should he have kicked?
