NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about what the worst case scenario for the 2013 Seattle Seahawks would be.

NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens tells us today what he’s been watching this week with regards to the Hawks 2013 season.

Seattle Seahawks blogger Jones Hyde weighs in today on the news about GM John Schneider and his contract extension. Jonas goes on to say Pete Carroll will be next to hit a payday. With Carroll’s original 5-year deal running through 2014, it is a given that an extension will be done within the year to keep the tandem together.
