NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us an interesting look at the factors that could or could not lead to a Super Bowl title this season. Youth goes both ways, good and bad, while depth and talent will help give the Seahawks a major push. Their off field issues and injuries could hinder things, though, if the team isn’t careful. Watch the LOB push. The Legion of Boom – Brandon Browner, Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about what the worst case scenario for the 2013 Seattle Seahawks would be. While there are several things that could derail Seattle’s chance of reaching a Super Bowl, he believes that the greatest threat to the Seahawks would be the loss of Russell Wilson for more than three games, especially towards the end of the season. Chris believes Brady Quinn and Tarvaris Jackson, who are both contending for the backup QB spot, would not be able to produce enough wins for the team.
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.
