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. 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?
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.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Dave B previews this Seattle’s opening game of the season against the Carolina Panthers and gives you his prediction on where your bets should be put. The Hawks haven’t fared well on the road in recent years and will be facing an early start time, but could their defense guide them to a win? Russell Wilson made huge strides last season but won’t catch anyone off guard this upcoming season. Lets go!
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again weighs in with his 53 man roster defense predictions for the Seahawks following their Week 4 preseason game versus the Oakland Raiders. Positives. A familiar name will be cut at linebacker. Allen Bradford’s great play has made Heath Farwell expendable. John Lotulelei has a skill set that can’t be taught. Jason LaCanfora has reported that he has heard reports that the Seahawks are releasing Antoine Winfield.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brian Scott talks about the strengths and weaknesses of Seattle’s 2013 defense. Last year the Seahawks’ D finish 4th in average yards allowed, the highest a Seattle defense has ever ranked. This is an incredibly stingy defense in terms of yards allowed. However, the sacks department for the Seahawks could still need to be improved, and must do so if they are to make a run in the NFC.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell takes a look at the state of the Seahawks on the eve of their preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers. Injuries are the biggest question mark in his mind, and they are seriously looking like they make a dent in the celebration plans of a lot of Seahawks fans. The Championship Offseason has been nice, but it’s time to get back down to earth. What will Cliff Avril, Christine Michael, Golden Tate, Bruce Irvin, and Sidney Rice do in the preseason?
