NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Sunday when the Seahawks look to go 5-1 vs. the Titans in Seattle. Jordin says give the ball to Marshawn Lynch. Whoever is the one deciding to limit Lynch’s carries needs to explain themselves. Pete Carroll? Darrell Bevell? Sidney Rice! Step Up! Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin are making $4.67 million combined and outplaying you bigtime!
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us five players to watch who have not played their best games so far during the 2013-14 season. Starting at receiver, Sidney Rice has only caught for 10 catches for 146 yards and two Touchdowns. Golden Tate must also step up, but in special teams. Derrick Coleman, Kellen Davis and Paul McQuistan also make the list.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down yesterday’s Hawks vs. Colts tilt. Brett seriously feels sorry for the Titans next week. The Seahawks are going to be happy to be home and wanting to take some frustrations from Sunday’s loss out on someone. Andrew Luck got the best of Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond III.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you his Seattle first quarter of the season stats. He points out Russell Wilson has completed 59/96 passes with a completion rate of 61.5% for 787 yards. Marshawn Lynch’s 79 carries put him on pace to have one more carry than last season. Like Lynch, Robert Turbin is also finding it more difficult to find running room. Sidney Rice is having a season very similar to last season.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens will weigh in each week with his blue print for a Seahawks win on Sunday. This week the team travels to Texas to take on the Houston Texans. Expect Marshawn Lynch to have his first 100-yard performance of the season. That said, Richard Sherman and the secondary must shut down Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins. Expect a close game down the stretch, but don’t be surprised when Russell Wilson leads the team through a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us what he loved and hate about this week’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Russell Wilson put up stats in 1 half that most QBs cant put up in a game while Sidney Rice and Zach Miller had 2 touchdown days. Now if only the offensive line could get it together. Baby steps…
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us three questions fans should still be asking themselves despite a strong start. Fiirst and foremost, we have to wonder if the team will see Percy Harvin in 2013. Sydney Rice, Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin make up a great trio of wide-outs, but Harvin is a matchup nightmare. Also, consistency on both sides of the ball is questionable. Cliff Avril returned against the 49ers, but Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin are still out.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down games once again, Brett looks at Seattle’s first regular game of the season and the positives and negatives that came out of the Hawks’ ugly victory over the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers brought pressure to Russell Wilson early and often as his offensive line struggled to protect him. Doug Baldwin and Earl Thomas were fantastic Sunday.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with his first Seahawks Moments In Time piece of the new year. Well, football is back, and so are the winning ways of the Seahawks. It wasn’t pretty, but it was a classic NFC East matchup, it’s just too bad that neither Carolina nor Seattle are in the NFC East. Tough guys to lose to injury this week though. We all knew we were going to be without Chris Clemons and Cliff Avril for the opener, but Brandon Browner too? Wow. Big Win.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Jordin Ereth details the Seattle unit that was most impressive in their week one triumph over the Carolina Panthers. While Russell Wilson eventually had a career game, the wide receivers stood out and helped the Seahawks to victory. Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin, Sidney Rice, and most of all Jermaine Kearse, a graduate of UW, was the most impressive receiver and hauled in the biggest TD of the game.
