Seattle Seahawks blogger Jones Hyde weighs in today on the news about GM John Schneider and his contract extension. Jonas goes on to say Pete Carroll will be next to hit a payday. With Carroll’s original 5-year deal running through 2014, it is a given that an extension will be done within the year to keep the tandem together. After the extension is done, the real work will only just be starting. Richard Sherman & Russell Wilson are nice picks by the way.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you his opinion on the first four games on Seattle’s schedule in 2013.

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with a piece about the Seahawks most prized possession: the Legion of Boom. From Kam to Earl, Browner to Sherm, these guys are the heart and soul of the Seahawks defense.

The contract also makes Kam the highest paid strong safety in the NFL. Bivens thinks that the Hawks overpaid to keep their man, but he’s excited to see him roaming the backfield for years to come.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another Pete Carroll & John Schneider move this week. They signed Antoine Winfield. He gives the Seahawks a player who they can count on in the secondary. Eventually he will hit a wall where he is no longer effective, hopefully it is not this season. Between Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor the secondary looks set.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens analyzes the five reasons he thinks the Seahawks got bounced early from the playoffs. Pete had some questionable calls during the game, but the biggest offender was not kicking the field goal on 4th and 1 at the 11. That would have at least put the Hawks on the board before halftime. Another one was Marshawn Lynch fumbling the ball. Nothing kills momentum more than a fumble. And that was Lynch’s second in two weeks.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Phil Slater weighs in who is to blame for the Hawks’ loss to the Atlanta Falcons. For that, we have to start at the top—head coach Pete Carroll. When a head coach has two players of Russell Willson and Marshawn Lynch’s caliber, you have to keep the ball in the hands of the backfield. Also, the game plan clearly didn’t call for Tony Gonzalez to be such a crucial part of the conest.
