NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, highlights some key Seahawks losses during the first week of NFL free agency– Hands down, Brandon Mebane was the best interior defensive tackle the Seahawks had last year. It’s a shame that his departure has come as I hoped he’d finish his career playing for the Seahawks.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reviews the Seahawks stunning win over the Cardinals in Glendale Sunday– Face it folks, Russell Wilson is the real deal. He’s on his way to the playoffs for the fourth time in his career and quite possibly, the Super Bowl for the third time in his career. 10 years from now we’ll have to debate whether or not he’s better than Peyton Manning.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reviews the keys to victory for the Hawks as they beat the Vikings 38-7– The Seahawks defense was absolutely suffocating the Vikings. I mentioned already Peterson finishing with 18 yards but the Vikings as a team had just 31 yards. The dominance by the defense allowed the Seahawks to possess the ball for 35:10 vs the Vikings 24:50.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks Thursday Night matchup against the 49ers– It’s likely that neither of these situations have the Seahawks players that are involved legally at fault for anything criminal at this point. Still, they were there, it happened, it’s on the news and it needs to not happen anymore. All these things serve as a distraction and take away the focus the team needs now, more than ever.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reacts to the Seahawks stunning loss to the Bengals– A dominant defense. Smart, big plays on offense. Defensive touchdowns. It all added up to type of Seattle Seahawks game we are used to seeing from this team with one exception. They forgot that they are supposed to play four quarters, not three.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, takes a look at just who might wind up returning punts in 2015. The answer to the punt return problem certainly hasn’t come in free agency, at least so far. We also know it won’t be Walters again as he has moved on to Jacksonville.
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 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 gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks NFC West Championship clinching victory over the St. Louis Rams. I have never seen Wilson take as many hard hits as did in this game. To his credit, he got up every time. Wilson hasn’t missed a game or any significant playing time due to injury in his entire three year career. I guess we can add toughness and durability to the long list of reasons to love this guy.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his watch list for the Seahawks road trip to KC. While Russell Wilson has certainly been inaccurate given plenty of time to throw, he’s also been inaccurate with no time to throw as well thanks to a combination of poor pass protection and multiple injuries on the offensive line.
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. With Seattle still struggling with penalties however, that could be just enough for the Panthers to send the Seahawks to their third straight loss.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott weighs in on the Seahawks vs. Redskins Week 5 matchup. Penalties, Penalties, Penalties! Are you kidding me with this stuff? When J.R. Sweezy and Justin Britt weren’t missing blocks the rest of the offensive line, James Carpenter, Russell Okung, and Max Unger, were just flat out sloppy with their penalties.
