NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, spotlights the amazing performance of rookie Tyler Lockett– The thing I liked about that play is it was a simple seam route but Lockett managed to get a couple of steps on the defender almost immediately. That’s the kind of speed Lockett possess and the kind of speed that the Seahawks best receivers haven’t had since a guy named Harvin played at least part of the time.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the 2015 battle for Seahawks Wide Receiver Positions– I don’t want to debate the play call or whether or not Lockette should have come up with the catch or not here but that play is relevant to this discussion in that I have to wonder where Lockette is mentally now. Plays like that can do one of two things to a player. They can either define their career or they can be used as motivation.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at draft possibilities and positions for the Seahawks first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft– While it’s true that most of these guys should be ready for the start of the 2015 season, excluding Lane, that’s a lot of injuries, surgeries and rehabs that have to go well with no backup. It certainly wouldn’t hurt the Seahawks to draft a corner in the first round.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks insider Brian Scott takes a look at three affordable free-agent targets for the Hawks in 2015. I know we are still hearing a lot of optimistic talk from the Seahawks right now about their ability to re-sign starting corner Byron Maxwell, but I just don’t buy it. Maxwell is going to go after the biggest deal he can get and that puts him out of reach financially for the Seahawks.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks loss in Super Bowl 49. Trailing by just four points, a time out in hand with just 20 seconds left in regulation, and with a 2nd down and goal at the 1 yard line , Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, made one of the most questionable decisions I have ever witnessed in a Super Bowl– He decided to throw the ball.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his Super Bowl preview: The Seahawks were tremendously bad last week at protecting the football. I don’t see any possible way they can win the game over Tom Brady if they turn the ball over five times again. Fortunately, turning the ball over that many times is not something we have seen from the Seahawks often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at Doug Baldwin’s mental state. Is he really always angry? Most people think it’s to get the attention of the press, get his name in the paper or on twitter. That might be a secondary benefit of his “anger act” but it’s not the real reason why does it. Do you want to know the real reason?
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks shocking win over the Packers in the NFC Championship. The Seahawks spent the better part of 56 minutes floundering offensively. In OT, Russell Wilson drove the Seahawks down the field and delivered the game winning touchdown, a beautiful check to a deep ball where he recognized one on one coverage on Jermaine Kearse.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks first playoff game of the 2014 NFL Season. Carolina has to take some shots in this one and the Seahawks need to be ready for it. Newton is a bit banged up so he may not be as mobile as he normally is which is yet another reason I expect the Panthers will go deep and do so often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his breakdown of the Seahawks home victory over the 49ers. I never like it when the officiating gets in the way of a big rivalry game like this. While the Seahawks got a TD instead of a chip shot FG thanks to that bad call I still don’t think that call changed the game’s outcome. The 49ers never scored again in multiple attempts after that play.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks big win on the road in Philly– Only two things fans do really tick me off. One is throwing things on the field or at players. The other is booing (or cheering) an opposing player going down to injury. Great games by Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin and Richard Sherman in this one.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives you his takeaways for the Seahawks loss to the Chiefs. This kind of let down by the defense against the run really illustrates how badly it hurts them to have both their starting middle linebacker, Bobby Wagner, and their starting defensive tackle, Brandon Mebane, out at the same time. The only good news here is that Wagner should be back soon.
