NWSB Writer and Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives you his takeaways from the Seahawk’s latest loss to the Rams.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott weighs in on the Seahawks vs. Redskins Week 5 matchup. Penalties, Penalties, Penalties! Are you kidding me with this stuff? When J.R.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down yesterday’s Vikings vs. Hawks game.
