NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott recaps Jared Allen’s decision to sign with the Chicago Bears and why the 12th Man shouldn’t be discouraged. Not only should fans want someone who wants to be in the Northwest, but his salary would have likely endangered the deals the Hawks need to get in front of Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Russell Wilson.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you his thoughts on the return to the Seahawks roster this week of the suspended Bruce Irvin. Bruce Irvin will join the team as a strong side linebacker (SAM), probably replacing Malcolm Smith as the starter. Smith has played well this season including a big forced fumble against the Texans last weekend. Mike Morgan, or Benson Mayowa could make way for him this week.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about two things that could spoil Seattle’s chances of coming away with a win in their opening game against the Carolina Panthers this coming Sunday. A combination of an early start time on the road as well as a depleted defensive line (No Bruce Irvin, Chris Clemons, Jordan Hill or Cliff Avril, more than likely) going up against Cam Newton could have the Seahawks leaving the East Coast with a bad taste in their mouths.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again weighs in with his 53 man roster defense predictions for the Seahawks following their Week 4 preseason game versus the Oakland Raiders. Positives. A familiar name will be cut at linebacker. Allen Bradford’s great play has made Heath Farwell expendable. John Lotulelei has a skill set that can’t be taught. Jason LaCanfora has reported that he has heard reports that the Seahawks are releasing Antoine Winfield.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bives once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback…er…rather Saturday morning Quarterback! Breaking down games once again, Brett looks at Seattle’s third preseason game of the season and the positives and negatives that came out of the Hawks’ victory over the Green Bay Packers.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bives once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback…er…rather Sunday Afternoon Quarterback! Breaking down games once again, Brett looks at Seattle’s second preseason game of the season and the positives and negatives that came out of the Hawks’ victory over the Denver Broncos. Hawks rolled, but there are still some improvements needed. Standouts were Jermaine Kearse, Russell Wilson, and Benson Mayowa.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Jonas Hyde takes a look at the top 3 position battles in the week 2 preseason matchup versus the Denver Broncos. With the starters traditionally playing deep in the preseason’s 3rd game, and the 4th game being used to decide final cuts, the second game of the preseason is critical for deciding immediate depth behind starters. Players to watch include Benson Mayowa, Brady Quinn, Cliff Avril, Jordan Hill, Spencer Ware & Jesse Williams.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens breaks down what he would personally like to see in preseason against the Denver Broncos. He wants to see a win, of course; but more importantly, he wants to see Tavaris Jackson running the second-string offense behind Russell Wilson. He also wants to see Robert Turbin get a whole lot more carries — especially with Christine Michael having back spasms — and more out of Luke WiIlson and Chris Harper.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his 3 under the radar players to keep an eye on against the Denver Broncos. Allen Bradford, Benson Mayowa and Stephen Williams all played well against San Diego. Can they do it again versus the Broncos to help their chances at a roster spot? Remember Mike Williams, Terrell Owens, Braylon Edwards and Antonio Bryant? Williams hopefully isn’t next.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bives once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback…er…rather Friday Afternoon Quarterback! Breaking down games once again, Brett looks at Seattle’s first preseason game of the season and the positives and negatives that came out of the Hawks’ victory over the San Diego Chargers. Tarvaris Jackson, as many know, had quite the game.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger J.D. Burke weighs in with his first impressions of three players from the Seahawks vs. San Diego Chargers Week 1 2013 preseason game. While it’s hard to focus on anyone else when John Lotulelei is on the field due to his Polamalu-esque head of hair, that really isn’t such a bad thing. No Cliff Avril, no Chris Clemons… No problem! Benson Mayowa was impressive. As was Tarvaris Jackson. Your move Brady Quinn.
