NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with his weekly Hawks week that was piece. Tough win eh? If it wasn’t bad enough that our O line couldn’t protect our stars, the D line seemed to be just as bad.

Paul McQuistan couldn’t block anyone…
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you (Tuesday) Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down yesterday’s Hawks vs. Rams game. Brett points out Richard Sherman continued his season long pattern of going a game without an interception and following it up with a pick the next week. Another positive.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you his thoughts on the return to the Seahawks roster this week of the suspended Bruce Irvin. Bruce Irvin will join the team as a strong side linebacker (SAM), probably replacing Malcolm Smith as the starter.

The Legion of Boom had a great day. Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, and Richard Sherman all had an interception each.
