The Seahawks will face off against the Chargers, Broncos, Packers, and Raiders this year. With each game carrying a bit of significance to it, even by pre-season standards. The quest for a Super Bowl trophy starts here! Russell Wilson vs. Matt Flynn, vs. Aaron Rogers, vs. Peyton Manning, and vs. Philip Rivers.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us some good reasons why Percy Harvin will make this Seahawks team even better. With his flat out speed, Harvin is the ultimate playmaker. He can take screen passes the distance, can take a handoff the distance and can take a punt or kick for a touchdown.

NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on the breaking news of the Percy Harvin deal. Not only will this bring a top flight NFL receiver (in his prime) to the Seahawks, but also has to bring the Hawks offense up the echelons in the NFC.

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with the five players who he thinks need to improve the most in 2013 if the Seahawks are going to make a serious push for the Super Bowl. The biggest name that comes to mind for Clinton is Seahawks rookie DT Bruce Irvin. He showed signs of both brilliance, and need of improvement in his rookie season. He ended up with 8 sacks on the year, but his play on first and second down, when called upon, is where the most work is needed. The WR corps of Sidney Rice and Golden Tate needs to improve too, with one of them finally coming out as the top WR threat for Russell Wilson.
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.

Also, having Richard Sherman back should put fans’ minds at ease against Robert Griffin III.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Sunday when the Hawks host divisional foe the San Francisco 49ers & Colin Kaepernick. Marshawn Lynch is the league’s second leading rusher with 1,379 yards and 10 touchdowns on the season. He’ll have to find room to run on Sunday for Seattle to get the W.
