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 Chris Hall has previewed the 2013-14 NFL season with his predictions of who will make the Pro Bowl. Russell Okung, Marshawn Lynch, Max Unger, Earl Thomas and Leon Washington should be returners. Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson, Brandon Browner, Kam Chancellor, Chris Clemons and Percy Harvin should be newcomers.
5 top players Last week, people were most disappointed that John Lotulelei was not on this list for the Seattle Seahawks. Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint them to find out he’s not on it this week either. Kyle Knox I don’t spend a lot of time talking about this young man, but after his performance against […]
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Jordin Ereth recaps the pros and cons following the team’s final preseason game against the Denver Broncos. On the plus side, Kam Chancellor, Brandon Browner, Brandon Mebane, Heath Farwell, and O’Brien Schofield forced five fumbles. Unfortunately, penalty yards were a theme for the wrong reason.
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.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you his top play from Seattle’s contest against the Denver Broncos last night.

The top play came from Brandon Browner, who electrified the crowd with a fumble return for a touchdown in the second quarter.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger J.D. Burke weighs in with his impression of Byron Maxwell’s performance against the San Diego Chargers in the preseason. The hype so far has been about Walter Thurmond, and how he’s going to compete for a starting spot alongside Richard Sherman. However, Maxwell’s performance was statistically noteworthy.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Bobby Wagner and how he is definitely not headed down the path for a sophomore slump. Boasting the speed and ferocity needed for a linebacker, the relatively unheralded Wagner will only get better in the coming year, and the Seattle defense will do so with him. Additions along the defensive line (Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett) and his development as a player will be main factors in allowing him to continue to dominate in 2013.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us an interesting look at the factors that could or could not lead to a Super Bowl title this season. Youth goes both ways, good and bad, while depth and talent will help give the Seahawks a major push. Their off field issues and injuries could hinder things, though, if the team isn’t careful. Watch the LOB push. The Legion of Boom – Brandon Browner, Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about what the worst case scenario for the 2013 Seattle Seahawks would be. While there are several things that could derail Seattle’s chance of reaching a Super Bowl, he believes that the greatest threat to the Seahawks would be the loss of Russell Wilson for more than three games, especially towards the end of the season. Chris believes Brady Quinn and Tarvaris Jackson, who are both contending for the backup QB spot, would not be able to produce enough wins for the team.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Jonas Hyde talks about the offseason acquisitions Seattle made and how they will fit in with the rest of the team. Head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider used a key trade and free agent signings to bolster some of the team’s weaknesses: QB pressure from the defensive line, a true play-maker on offense, secondary depth, and a backup quarterback in the event something… anything… happens to franchise savior, Russell Wilson.
