Betting odds, suggestions and tips are all revealed as Dave gives the Seahawks the edge and provides a well-thought-out preview. Russell Wilson hasn’t been great as of late, but the bigger concern should be for Colin Kaepernick, as he faces DEs Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril, CB Richard Sherman and FS Earl Thomas.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Seattle’s blowout victory over the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night football and gives you some things to love — and possibly hate — from the contest. Amid the intense atmosphere that was CenturyLink the Seahawks came out and absolutely dominated the No. 2 Saints en route to a rousing 34-7 victory that saw an aftershock of Marshawn Lynch’s infamous Beast Quake.
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.
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 & Seattle Seahawks blogger JD Burke takes a look at the statistical standouts from the Seattle Seahawks week 2 victory over their divisional rival San Francisco 49ers. The Seahawks defensive line did yeoman’s work on Sunday and the numbers provided in this post will surely convince you of the same. ProFootballFocus and other great stats sites are referenced. So are Brendan Mebane, Tony McDaniel, Bruce Irvin, Chris Clemons, O’Brien Schofield and Cliff Avril.
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.
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.
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.

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.
