NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawaks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks showdown with the Arizona Cardinals Week 12 of the NFL. Call it the Super Bowl jinx. Blame it on a mountain of injuries or a loss of depth at key positions during the off-season. Maybe you could even call it a combination of all three of those things but make no mistake about it. The 2014 Seattle Seahawks are playing for their proverbial playoff lives this Sunday as they square off with the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives you his takeaways for the Seahawks loss to the Chiefs. This kind of let down by the defense against the run really illustrates how badly it hurts them to have both their starting middle linebacker, Bobby Wagner, and their starting defensive tackle, Brandon Mebane, out at the same time. The only good news here is that Wagner should be back soon.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his watch list for the Seahawks road trip to KC. While Russell Wilson has certainly been inaccurate given plenty of time to throw, he’s also been inaccurate with no time to throw as well thanks to a combination of poor pass protection and multiple injuries on the offensive line.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott predicts what we can expect in Week 6 NFL action between Seattle and the Dallas Cowboys. When they get tired of throwing the ball to Percy Harvin or Dallas guess right on their coverage on him, Russell Wilson is going to take off and we honestly don’t think that Dallas’s defensive line is anymore disciplined when it comes to trying to keep Wilson in the pocket…
NWSB Insider & Blogger J.D. Burke previews some of the many tough decisions ahead for the Seattle Seahawks, and preaches balance in this piece. The future of Seattle’s free agents are looked at in depth. With the Zach Miller quandary, Pete Carroll finds himself in another ideological catch-22. Golden Tate, Michael Bennett and Breno Giacomini highlight the list of Seahawks set to hit unrestricted free agency.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down yesterday’s Vikings vs. Hawks game. Brett points out it was more than fun to finally see Percy Harvin take the field for Seattle. Harvin returned that kick 58-yards which put the Seahawks in position to attack the field on offense, even with such little time remaining. Also Seeing Russell Okung, Breno Giacomini and Harvin on the field Sunday was a wonderful sight.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger JD Burke takes a look at some of the match-ups, personnel and otherwise, that will dictate the outcome of Seattle’s game against the St. Louis Rams in the spotlight on Monday. Both clubs are banged up, but the Rams are clearly on the worse end of things with that regard. The battle of the trenches is looked at in depth, as is the likelihood that Michael Bowie will hold his own against Robert Quinn.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you his Seattle first quarter of the season defensive stats. He points out Cliff Avril’s numbers are down, no doubt about it. He is on pace to have a career low in tackles and his least amount of sacks since 2009. Michael Bennett was brought back to Seattle for one reason, get after the quarterback. Bennett has not disappointed. Brandon Mebane is one of those players that the numbers always lie.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger JD Burke takes a look at the statistical standouts from the Seattle Seahawks week 2 victory over their divisional rival San Francisco 49ers. The Seahawks defensive line did yeoman’s work on Sunday and the numbers provided in this post will surely convince you of the same. ProFootballFocus and other great stats sites are referenced. So are Brendan Mebane, Tony McDaniel, Bruce Irvin, Chris Clemons, O’Brien Schofield and Cliff Avril.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us three questions fans should still be asking themselves despite a strong start. Fiirst and foremost, we have to wonder if the team will see Percy Harvin in 2013. Sydney Rice, Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin make up a great trio of wide-outs, but Harvin is a matchup nightmare. Also, consistency on both sides of the ball is questionable. Cliff Avril returned against the 49ers, but Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin are still out.
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 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.
