NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Jonas Hyde talks about the offseason acquisitions Seattle made and how they will fit in with the rest of the team. Head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider used a key trade and free agent signings to bolster some of the team’s weaknesses: QB pressure from the defensive line, a true play-maker on offense, secondary depth, and a backup quarterback in the event something… anything… happens to franchise savior, Russell Wilson.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens tells us today what he’s been watching this week with regards to the Hawks 2013 season. Brett says Percy Harvin gives Russell Wilson the type of dynamic receiver that very few quarterbacks get the luxury to have. He also points out Doug Baldwin had a tough sophomore season after his breakout rookie campaign, but is hearing that he has been working really hard this offseason. Lets go!
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. After the extension is done, the real work will only just be starting. Richard Sherman & Russell Wilson are nice picks by the way.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Kam Chancellor’s new role with the Seattle Seahawks. A new extension added to his contract, Chancellor will be expected to become a leader for the Seahawks. Recently speaking out about Bruce Irvin’s four-game suspension and the attitude of the team, Chancellor made sure to point out that he is already en route to becoming quite the leader in Seattle.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with a piece about the Seahawks most prized possession: the Legion of Boom. From Kam to Earl, Browner to Sherm, these guys are the heart and soul of the Seahawks defense. Sure the offense has some nice weapons too, but the defense is what keeps the Hawks in games down the stretch. Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Brandon Browner, and now featuring Antoine Winfield. Look out.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another Pete Carroll & John Schneider move this week. They signed Antoine Winfield. He gives the Seahawks a player who they can count on in the secondary. Eventually he will hit a wall where he is no longer effective, hopefully it is not this season. Between Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor the secondary looks set.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his 5 fearless 2013 Seattle Seahawks draft predicitions. The Seahawks will be drafting another quarterback according to Brandon. They will also trade down with their first pick and won’t reach for anybody, either. Desmond Trufant, Marquess Wilson, Kenjon Barner? Who will it be drafted to the Northwest’s Seahawks.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you his top five performers for the Seattle Seahawks this year. To say the Seattle Seahawks had a somewhat surprising season in 2012 would be an understatement. While they did come into the new year with a youthful roster that was built on potential, many believed the Seahawks would be a middle-of-the-pack 7-9, 8-8, or 9-7 team. Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas, Bobby Wagner, Marshawn Lynch & Richard Sherman make the grade.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us the path for the 6 Seahawks to get into this weekend’s Pro Bowl. Let’s take a look at how these six made it to Hawaii. Russell Okung and Max Unger protected Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch while Earl Thomas led the defense all year long. Leon Washington’s record tying season didn’t hurt, either.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth weighs in with part 1 of his year in review. A look at the Seahawks 2013 defense. The Seattle Seahawks season began with a certain level of expectations. The defense was youthful with loads of promise and the offense held a top rushing attack. Playoffs were a reasonable goal, and then Russell Wilson threw the ball. The city of Seattle has never been more excited in the history of this franchise.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Seattle’s secondary and the way they match up with Atlanta’s air attack. And yet, despite all of the accolades that Wilson has received this season, he will be doing battle against one of the top quarterbacks in the league, Matt Ryan. Ryan, who completed 422 of 615 (68.6%) of his passes this season for 4,719 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions, had one of the best seasons of his career with the help of Roddy White, Julio Jones, and Tony Gonzalez.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Chris Hall breaks down which Seahawks players were named to the pro bowl, and which ones deserved better. Russell Okung, Leon Washington and Max Unger earned starting spots, and they deserved them; but Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor deserved more. The 2013 Pro Bowl is Jan. 27.
