NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson brings us his weekly love em and hate em from this week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks’ Thursday night game of the season, Seattle traveled to Arizona and downed the Cardinals in brilliant fashion as a large contingent of 12′s watched Russell Wilson dazzle through the air en route to three passing touchdowns. Could the Seahawks have 1 loss when they play Drew Brees and the Saints?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down yesterday’s Titans vs. Hawks matchup. Going into the game Brett expected the Seahawks to play inspired football after suffering their first loss of the season. Earl Thomas III, Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson, all had standout games. Darrell Bevell, James Carpenter, Chris Maragos and Brandon Browner not so much.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you his Seattle first quarter of the season defensive stats. He points out Cliff Avril’s numbers are down, no doubt about it. He is on pace to have a career low in tackles and his least amount of sacks since 2009. Michael Bennett was brought back to Seattle for one reason, get after the quarterback. Bennett has not disappointed. Brandon Mebane is one of those players that the numbers always lie.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with his fourth Seahawks Moments In Time piece of the 2013 season. This week the Seahawks needed a bit more than the 60 minutes normally allotted for a football game. The 23-20 victory was more about the gut and determination of this team than it was about us going 4-0. To be completely out of a game and to win is just remarkable. Kudo’s to Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin, Brandon Mebane & Richard Sherman…
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with his third Seahawks Moments In Time piece of the 2013 season. This week the Seahawks offense completely dismantled the Jaguars defense, but not really in the way most would’ve thought; through the air. Russell Wilson tied his career high with four TD passes, two each to Sidney Rice and Zach Miller. Good to see those two getting their fantasy stocks up a bit.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell brings us a piece on the return of not one, but two Seahawks players this coming Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Both Chris Clemons and Brandon Browner make their season debuts for the Hawks. Clinton thinks this is the perfect game for both to get things started as the Jags are the worst team offensively in the league. Hopefully this will be a day full of three and outs, and will save the extra stress to the legs of these two untested guys.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Jordin Ereth details the Seattle unit that was most impressive in their week 2 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. While Marshawn Lynch had an impressive performance, it’s Cliff Avril and the defensive line that made the difference. Avril put the pressure on Colin Kaepernick and forced a fumble on a sack. The Legion of Boom had a great day. Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, and Richard Sherman all had an interception each.
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 Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens will weigh in each week with his blue print for a Seahawks win on Sunday. This week its Sunday night football on NBC, as the Hawks host the San Francisco 49ers. Brett says A lot has been made about the 49ers read option and points out the Seahawks defense plays the read-option technically sound, and has the athletes (Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright, Malcolm Smith, & Earl Thomas) necessary to defend it.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Dave B previews this Seattle’s Week 2 Sunday night football game against the San Francisco 49ers and gives you his prediction on where your bets should be put. With a fired up crowd, a seemingly decent game plan for limiting the effectiveness of Mr. Kaepernick and with the return of three quality starters on defense, Dave likes the Hawks to draw first blood. It will be nice to get back Brandon Browner, Cliff Avril and Chris Clemons.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott takes a look at the upcoming Week 2 2013 NFL matchup between our Hawks and the Colin Kaepernick led San Francisco 49ers. Early lines have the Seahawks by 3. After Seattle’s win over Carolina, there are several questions that will need to be addressed against a dangerous San Francisco squad. Will the Hawks be able to contain Kaep and will Russell Wilson get more time in the pocket?

Week 1 features the Seahawks vs. Patriots. Chris Clemons, Cliff Avril, Brandon Browner, Jordan Hill, and rookie Michael Bowie will all more than likely miss time this week.
