NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the Seahawks big win against the 49ers. The Seahawks won, but penalties persist. I get that the Seahawks play a style of defense that is going to lead to defensive holding calls, illegal contact and defensive pass interference a bit more than other teams. I can live with that. What I have a hard time with is the fact that most of these penalties are not amongst those three varieties.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks Thanksgiving Day matchup against the 49ers. Put simply, this game is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object and I’m not even talking about your digestive track after dinner either. No, it’s about which team hates the other enough to beat them and likely knock the other out of playoff contention.
NWSB Writer and Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks game in Carolina this weekend along with a special note to Safety Earl Thomas– shut up and stop blaming the refs for the Seahawk’s penalty problems.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott predicts what we can expect in Week 6 NFL action between Seattle and the Dallas Cowboys. When they get tired of throwing the ball to Percy Harvin or Dallas guess right on their coverage on him, Russell Wilson is going to take off and we honestly don’t think that Dallas’s defensive line is anymore disciplined when it comes to trying to keep Wilson in the pocket…
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger breaks down how the Hawks must pay their dues now that they’ve won the Super Bowl.

Golden Tate, Red Bryant, Chris Clemons, Chris Maragos and Clinton McDonald are prime examples.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Jordin Ereth recaps Michael Bennett’s recent contract extension during the 2014 NFL offseason.

Statistically, it might not leap off the page at you like Peyton Manning number’s sometimes do (not tonight though) but Russell Wilson had an amazing night. The MVP was Malcolm Smith. Yes, credit the errant throw to Cliff Avril but Malcolm Smith was the one who plucked it from the heavens.
