NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott looks at the Seahawks struggling offensive line and the possibility of Evan Mathis joining the team– Can the O-line of the Seahawks survive without Mathis? Yes, provided they continue to improve at the rate we saw between weeks 1 and 2 of the pre-season. Signing Mathis would give the young line an on the field mentor and certainly provide them depth that they don’t have right now too.
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 gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks NFC West Championship clinching victory over the St. Louis Rams. I have never seen Wilson take as many hard hits as did in this game. To his credit, he got up every time. Wilson hasn’t missed a game or any significant playing time due to injury in his entire three year career. I guess we can add toughness and durability to the long list of reasons to love this guy.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks decisive victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Had this run occurred in Seattle I have no doubt that UW would have been registering seismic activity coming from Century Link yet again.

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his breakdown of the Seahawks home victory over the 49ers. I never like it when the officiating gets in the way of a big rivalry game like this. While the Seahawks got a TD instead of a chip shot FG thanks to that bad call I still don’t think that call changed the game’s outcome. The 49ers never scored again in multiple attempts after that play.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks’ victory over the New York Giants. What is Wilson going to do to fix his throwing issues? Russell Wilson is going to say the right thing. He’s going to do the right things this week in practice but the big question is, will it change anything?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us what he is watching for at the Seahawks travel to St. Louis to take on the Rams.

Injuries have become concerning as as many as four starters could be out this week for the Seahawks.
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. Sweezy and Justin Britt weren’t missing blocks the rest of the offensive line, James Carpenter, Russell Okung, and Max Unger, were just flat out sloppy with their penalties.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott weighs in with his 5 things to watch Sunday vs. the San Diego Chargers in Week 2 NFL action. He points out Percy Harvin can do it all. He lines up outside, in the slot, in the backfield, and returns kickoffs. Nothing is going to change this week from that same plan. The punt returner competition is on. Earl Thomas and Brian Walters.

The real question is, can anyone wearing a Chargers uniform Sunday contain Harvin?
