NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks first playoff game of the 2014 NFL Season. Carolina has to take some shots in this one and the Seahawks need to be ready for it. Newton is a bit banged up so he may not be as mobile as he normally is which is yet another reason I expect the Panthers will go deep and do so often.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott wonders aloud whether or not the Hawks’ defense can lead them to a super bowl. Consensus is: Yes. The Seahawks have already performed adequately against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, as well as Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers, leaving just Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos to be worried about.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with his Week 1 preview, breakdown and prediction of the matchup between the Seahawks and the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers are trying to be a team on the rise in the weak NFC South, but the Seahawks are a team on the rise in the NFL. This one is a great test to see just how the Hawks will come out with the season opener on the road in the Eastern time zone. Definitely a thorn in the talons of these birds in the past.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Sunday in Carolina when the Hawks visit the Panthers. Jordin points out this won’t be an easy game. The Seahawks play 5 road games at 10:00 am this season – at Carolina, Houston, Indianapolis, Atlanta, and New York (Giants). He can’t wait to watch Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Cam Newton, Steve Smith, Pete Carroll and Ron Rivera go at it.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Ben Tole weighs in today with another installment in our Moments in time series. He tells us the Sidney Rice 46 yard touchdown catch with 1:18 remaining in the fourth quarter vs. the Patriots has to be not only the single biggest play of the game but probably the single biggest play of the Season. He also enjoyed the Seahawks continuing their dominant display in the second half versus the Cowboys.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell tells us about the fifth game of the season for the Seahawks, a Sunday morning matchup with the Carolina Panthers. 10:00 start times have not been too favorable for the Seahawks, but this game could be a good time to break that mold. Cam Newton has been awful this year, already throwing 8 picks, a good QB to go against to get our secondary kick started.
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 Editor and Writer Chris Anderson talks about Autzen Stadium, home of the Oregon Ducks football team. As it’s warriors traverse up and down its grounds in search of victory, it unleashes a force so powerful that it drives enemies that dare enter its territory mad. Many of the mighty have fallen victim to the terrible power harnessed by this monster, this beast, this zoo. Best play at Autzen? The Pick by Kenny Wheaton.
NWSB Insider Reggie Gill brings us his analysis of the Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. He questions whether or not Pete is on the Seahawks HOTSEAT. While Pete is a defensive Coach by his pedigree the Head Coach is ultimately responsible for all positions on the team, including the QB. And the Seattle QB competition is important. One has to wonder would another 7-9 record send Pete packing?

Will it be Matt Flynn or Tarvaris Jackson at the helm for Seattle?

The only way to do that is to play defense at a championship level, and Carroll and Schneider understand that better then anyone.
