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.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens is back with another update live from Bing Training Camp at the VMAC. Brett goes over each aspect of the Seahawks team in his own words. From a couple missed plays, to the exceptional play of Brandon Mebane, to a bit of a scare when Marshawn Lynch came up holding his groin. It’s all here. P.S. Lynch was back a few minutes later, so nothing to worry about here.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his 5 depth chart positions that will up for grab when the Seattle Seahawks hit camp this year. Will Malcolm Smith become the new starting ROLB? While Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin are set, they look to see who wins between Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin. Chris Harper and Jermaine Kearse will also battle. As will Tony McDaniel, Jesse Williams and Jordan Hill on the interior line.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Chris Hall breaks down which Seahawks players were named to the pro bowl, and which ones deserved better. Russell Okung, Leon Washington and Max Unger earned starting spots, and they deserved them; but Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor deserved more. The 2013 Pro Bowl is Jan. 27.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Alistair Corp breaks down the team’s troubles in third-down situations. The boiling point for the third down troubles came during the Detroit Lions game-winning drive in the week 8 loss. If the Hawks’ offense can continue to progress as the season deepens, if the coaching staff takes the lid off of Russell Wilson’s game and if the defense can get off the field, we, the 12th Man, may get to personally kick Jim Harbaugh.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Sunday Carolina when the Hawks visit the Panthers. His big ticket item he’s watching is between Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman, and Brandon Browner, will they be able to keep Cam Newton under wraps? How will Russell Wilson perform on the road in his old stomping grounds?

NWSB Writer Brett Bivens talks about five standout players from the Seattle Seahawks’ game against the St. Louis Rams. The Seahawks didn’t play well, they were not well coached, but that should not take away from the fact that the Rams came to play on Sunday, and they did what they needed to do to get the big win. Jason Jones, Brandon Mebane, Marshawn Lynch, & Bobby Wagner were impressive.
