NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks home rematch against the NFC rival St. Louis Rams– The Seahawks defense has had a lot of success against inexperienced QBs the last several weeks. They beat Johnny Manziel, Jimmy Clausen, and Teddy Bridgewater over the past three games. The formula for disrupting the young passers was similar in each of the three games.
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, 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, 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.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks in Week 2– Next for the Hawks it’s the Green Bay Packers, on the frozen tundra, no less. To call this game a tough match up early on for Seattle is a bit of an understatement. The Seahawks are going to have their hands full. Here’s a few of the things I’ll be watching closely for as the Seahawks try to take it to the Pack Sunday night.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, looks at the Week 1 Seahawks’ loss to the Ram– The tackling by the Seahawks defense was suspect at times and solid at others. Even guys like Bobby Wagner and Michael Bennett missed key tackles that led to big gains by the Rams. Missed tackles led to the Rams converting on 3rd and 10+ on several occasions. Those are times you expect the Seahawks D to get off the field and they just didn’t get it done.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, questions the Seahawks as to why their star linebacker does not yet have a new contract– The Seahawk headlines have been dominated by Russell Wilson wants this, and Wilson wants that, his agent said this, this is the magic number he’s looking for and around and around we go. While I remain confident that Wilson’s deal will happen with the Seahawks I’m far more concerned about Wagner’s status.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks insider Brian Scott takes a look at three affordable free-agent targets for the Hawks in 2015. I know we are still hearing a lot of optimistic talk from the Seahawks right now about their ability to re-sign starting corner Byron Maxwell, but I just don’t buy it. Maxwell is going to go after the biggest deal he can get and that puts him out of reach financially for the Seahawks.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the Seattle Seahawks impending free agents– Maxwell is gone. He’s already said that he wants to see what’s out there in free agency. He’ll be the most sought after corner on the market and the Seahawks aren’t going to be able to keep him for financial reasons.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks loss in Super Bowl 49. Trailing by just four points, a time out in hand with just 20 seconds left in regulation, and with a 2nd down and goal at the 1 yard line , Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, made one of the most questionable decisions I have ever witnessed in a Super Bowl– He decided to throw the ball.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us a review of the Packers/Seahawks game from Week 1 and his watch list for their matchup in the NFC Championship Sunday. The Beast Mode-esk Eddie Lacy is the real deal for the Packers. The Seahawks have to contain the powerful runner which will be no easy task. Given Rodgers’ troubles with his leg I actually expect the Packers will try to establish Lacy early and often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at the the Seahawks key meeting at home with their division foe, the San Francisco 49ers. The only thing missing in this matchup is that the game means less to the 49ers than it does the Seahawks in terms of their own playoff contention. I guarantee you that the 49ers would love nothing better than to come into Century Link and mess up Seattle’s playoff plans.
