NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens analyzes the five reasons he thinks the Seahawks got bounced early from the playoffs. Pete had some questionable calls during the game, but the biggest offender was not kicking the field goal on 4th and 1 at the 11. That would have at least put the Hawks on the board before halftime. Another one was Marshawn Lynch fumbling the ball. Nothing kills momentum more than a fumble. And that was Lynch’s second in two weeks.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens today tells us no matter how you slice it, the Seahawks have a record of .500, and last place in the NFC West. Who would have thought the division, who had a 7-9 Seahawks team win it two years before, would become the best division in football.

The Seahawks lost to the Rams 19-13. Brett points out the Seahawks receivers are not giving Russell Wilson a lot of help. Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate were invisible. Tom Cable, Darrell Bevell and Pete Carroll need to shake things up.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us up to speed from the VMAC on the 2012 Seahawks training camp. He was at practice on Tuesday and has some observations to share. KJ Wright was mentoring Bobby Wagner (after practice) and he saw Breno Giacomini mentoring 7th round pick J.R. Sweezy. Training camp is just better in Cheney.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Reggie Gill tells us what is going on during training camp with regards to Tarvaris Jackson and the Seatle QB competition. He states truth be told, Jackson doesn’t really project as the long term answer for the Hawks, but should he at least be retained for one more year? Russell Wilson and Matt Flynn and Josh Portis will all have something to say about this.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Reggie Gill tells the Seahawks have extended the contract of starting Center Max Unger this week. This deal come off of the heels of the Seahawks coming to terms on a deal with Defensive End Chris Clemons, and shows that the Seahawks are willing to reward players that they see fitting into their system, and are committed to trying to keep core players along their lines to provide stability.
NWSB Insider Reggie Gill brings us his analysis of the Seattle Seahawks RT position going into the 2012 season. With James Carpenter, the Seahawks first round pick in 2011, still not ready to go 100%, the Hawks will have to rely on surprise tackle Breno Giacomini. Giocomini has himself a brand new two year contract, and is ready to be the RT of the future for the Seahawks. Frank Omiyale is ready to go too.
NWSB Insider Brandon Choate has football on the brain again. Today he brings us his list of Seattle Seahawks training camp battles to look forward to. Who will take over David Hawthorne’s spot at LB? He also wants to know if Chris Clemons and Mike Williams are done, and who their replacements might be.
Seahawks insider Brandon Choate brings us another preview of things to come. With the NFL draft 3 weeks away, the Seahawks need to think about addressing their remaining team needs. Drafting a linebacker like Luke Kuechly or a defensive end like Whitney Mercilus would sure take care of those holes in the roster.David DeCastro and Trent Richardson look awfully inviting as well.
Seahawks insider Brandon Choate brings us his list of top five positions the Seattle Seahawks need to shore up. With Marshawn Lynch and Red Bryant re-signing, and the team adding Jason Jones and Matt Flynn, the Seahawks can focus elsewhere and fill other positions that are lacking depth. LB, DE, Offensive line and RB seem to be the most glaring openings in his opinion.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Insider Steve weighs in on the signing of Matt Flynn. Which he says gives the Seahawks flexibility in spades. Not only do they have their QB of the future, but now there is no need to waste valuable 2012 NFL Draft picks. Use the draft to fill in the holes that remain at left guard, defensive end, and linebacker. If Visanthe Shiancoe decides to sign elsewhere maybe tight end.
