NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, highlights some key Seahawks losses during the first week of NFL free agency– Hands down, Brandon Mebane was the best interior defensive tackle the Seahawks had last year. It’s a shame that his departure has come as I hoped he’d finish his career playing for the Seahawks.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks free agents and identifies his keepers– Obviously you can’t re-sign all of these guys for $26 million and we know the Seahawks will probably make at least a few cuts to free up more space but allow me to speculate on who I would retain from this list. My re-signees would be…
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, shares his thoughts on the Seahawks playoff defeat against the Panthers– If you were fortunate enough to watch the Seattle Seahawks taking on the Carolina Panthers in the NFC divisional playoff game, you saw one of the most unique football games ever played in the NFL. Never have I seen both teams in a single game play at such a high level in one half and such a low level in the other half.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks huge win over the Steelers– The Seahawks gave up nearly 200 yards of passing in just the first half and in the second half things only got worse for the Seattle secondary. Before leaving with two minutes to play with an injury, Roethlisberger threw for 456 yards against the LOB. The lack of a consistent pass rush allowed the veteran Roethlisberger to sit in the pocket for hours and pick the Legion of Boom to pieces.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, spotlights the amazing performance of rookie Tyler Lockett– The thing I liked about that play is it was a simple seam route but Lockett managed to get a couple of steps on the defender almost immediately. That’s the kind of speed Lockett possess and the kind of speed that the Seahawks best receivers haven’t had since a guy named Harvin played at least part of the time.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the 2015 battle for Seahawks Wide Receiver Positions– I don’t want to debate the play call or whether or not Lockette should have come up with the catch or not here but that play is relevant to this discussion in that I have to wonder where Lockette is mentally now. Plays like that can do one of two things to a player. They can either define their career or they can be used as motivation.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at draft possibilities and positions for the Seahawks first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft– While it’s true that most of these guys should be ready for the start of the 2015 season, excluding Lane, that’s a lot of injuries, surgeries and rehabs that have to go well with no backup. It certainly wouldn’t hurt the Seahawks to draft a corner in the first round.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the Seattle Seahawks impending free agents– Maxwell is gone. He’s already said that he wants to see what’s out there in free agency. He’ll be the most sought after corner on the market and the Seahawks aren’t going to be able to keep him for financial reasons.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks loss in Super Bowl 49. Trailing by just four points, a time out in hand with just 20 seconds left in regulation, and with a 2nd down and goal at the 1 yard line , Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, made one of the most questionable decisions I have ever witnessed in a Super Bowl– He decided to throw the ball.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his Super Bowl preview: The Seahawks were tremendously bad last week at protecting the football. I don’t see any possible way they can win the game over Tom Brady if they turn the ball over five times again. Fortunately, turning the ball over that many times is not something we have seen from the Seahawks often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at Doug Baldwin’s mental state. Is he really always angry? Most people think it’s to get the attention of the press, get his name in the paper or on twitter. That might be a secondary benefit of his “anger act” but it’s not the real reason why does it. Do you want to know the real reason?
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks shocking win over the Packers in the NFC Championship. The Seahawks spent the better part of 56 minutes floundering offensively. In OT, Russell Wilson drove the Seahawks down the field and delivered the game winning touchdown, a beautiful check to a deep ball where he recognized one on one coverage on Jermaine Kearse.
