NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens gives us a comprehensive look at the moves made by the Hawks during the 2014 NFL offseason. In free agency, the team added players such as Taylor Price, Stephen Schilling, Mike Taylor and Terrence Parks. The team also re-signed Steven Hauschka, Tony McDaniel and Michael Bennett while losing guys like Golden Tate and Walter Thurmond.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott discusses the question marks surrounding the team entering the 2014 NFL Playoffs. Despite an improvement from Breno Giacomini when it comes to penalties, but Russell Okung and the rest of Pete Carroll’s team need to be more disciplined. Consistency is also crucial when it comes to Marshawn Lynch, Russell Wilson and the rest of the offense.
Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott focuses on the improvements this season from Breno Giacomini in an NWSB Player Spotlight. Scott isn’t afraid to say he was wrong about Giacomini in years past. Pete Carroll-coached teams have been guilty of penalties in the past, and while Giacomini was a major culprit, he’s improved substantially.
NWSB Insider and Seahawks blogger Dave B previews Seattle’s Week 13 Monday Night Football matchup from Seattle. He gives you his prediction on where your bets should be put. Pro Bowlers LT Russell Okung and RT Breno Giacomini will be back on the field to protect Russell Wilson as will Pro Bowl center Max Unger. That said, Drew Brees and company have been much-improved this season on both sides of the ball.
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 and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens will weigh in each week with his blue print for a Seahawks win on Sunday. This week the team has a matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Brett points out even with Russell Okung, Max Unger and Breno Giacomini back on the line this week, again I’m projecting Okung and Giacomini play, it is going to be a tall order for them to stop the Vikings pass rush. Oh and welcome back Percy Harvin.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching leading up to tomorrow’s contest with the Vikings. Jordin says yes, we are all excited to see Percy Harvin. Yes it has been like brutal Chinese torture waiting for #11 to step onto the field. Adrian Peterson comes to town. Can’t wait. However, if there was anybody you could put up against AP and actually have an argument, it’s Marshawn Lynch.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens gets trendy and defines what SWAG, a popular phrase among those young hooligans, means to the Seattle Seahawks. Defining it as players who have that grit and grind to them who help teams with their attitude, Bivens identifies Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, and Breno Giacomini among the players who can be categorized as having “swag”.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again weighs in with his 53 man roster predictions for the Seahawks following their Week 4 preseason game versus the Oakland Raiders. On O-line Russell Okung, Paul McQuistan, Max Unger, JR Sweezy, Breno Giacomini and James Carpenter were easy locks and to a lesser extent so was Lemuel Jeanpierre. Brett believes that Pete Carroll and John Schneider drafted Spencer Ware with the intention of having him replace Michael Robinson for cap relief.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger J.D. Burke talks about some players who the Seahawks should think about adding to their roster during training camp. Always being somewhat of a critic, J.D. points to the fact that Seattle being ranked in the No. 3 spot in Sport Illustrated’s first rankings is just unacceptable. The players he lists could help the Seahawks jump to No. 1. Richard Seymour, Eric Winston, Nick Barnett, Joe Mays, and Brandon Moore.
