hawksrussvshou

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his weekly love em and hate from this week’s game against the Texans. The offense was shaky, but made the few plays but made the plays necessary to lead the team to victory. The defense didn’t allow a point in the second half and Richard Sherman made the game deciding play for Seattle with a pick six.

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.

Three things we still don’t know about the 2013 Seattle Seahawks.

Cliff Avril, Seattle Seahawks, San Fransisco 49ers

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.

Moments in time…The Seattle Seahawks week that was

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with his second Seahawks Moments In Time piece of the new year. So much for our biggest threat being an actual threat once again. The Seahawks have now held San Francisco to just one TD in their last three matchups, pretty impressive considering they are the best team in the NFC, to the media of course. A dull start offensively was capped by another Beastly game by Marshawn Lynch, and Russell Wilson gets to save his eyebrow.

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?

Spoiler Alert: Could Seattle actually lose in Carolina?

We'll miss you, big guy.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about two things that could spoil Seattle’s chances of coming away with a win in their opening game against the Carolina Panthers this coming Sunday. A combination of an early start time on the road as well as a depleted defensive line (No Bruce Irvin, Chris Clemons, Jordan Hill or Cliff Avril, more than likely) going up against Cam Newton could have the Seahawks leaving the East Coast with a bad taste in their mouths.
