NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Reggie Gill brings us a list of items he’s looking forward to watching in the Week 1 NFL preaseason game on Saturday between the host Seahawks and Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker’s Tennessee Titans. Will players like Braylon Edwards, Golden Tate, Ben Obomanu, and Kris Durham be able to show they are better than Terrell Owens? Matt Flynn’s on the hotseat.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Reggie Gill tells us what is going on during training camp with regards to Tarvaris Jackson and the Seatle QB competition. He states truth be told, Jackson doesn’t really project as the long term answer for the Hawks, but should he at least be retained for one more year? Russell Wilson and Matt Flynn and Josh Portis will all have something to say about this.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens tells us today the Seahawks Pete Carroll can say there is an open competition all he wants but Flynn is not being brought in as anything but the starter. The Seattle Seahawks agreed to terms with free agent quarterback Matt Flynn on a 3-year $26 million dollar deal with $10 million guaranteed. NOT backup money.
Seahawks insider Brandon Choate is on the Matt Flynn rollercoaster today. He brings us his top 5 reasons why the Seattle Seahawks should NOT sign Flynn, citing his lack of NFL experience and how the Packers system set him up for instant success.

State of the Seattle Seahawks. Brett B our man with his pulse on the Seahawks football beat is back with another edition of the Notebook. The December 30th, 2011 edition. This week the Seahawks face their NFC West rivals the Arizona Cardinals. It sucks to get beat by a divisional opponent at home, it sucks to get swept by the 49ers and Alex Smith, it sucks that we ended up a quarterback short of a victory (Tarvaris Jackson), it sucks that the playoff hopes are dead.
The Seattle Seahawks are still mathematically alive in the NFC wildcard race, but realistically only one team in the NFC west has a shot at the playoffs, the San Francisco 49ers face the Arizona Cardinals this week, and the St. Louis Rams fly to Seattle to play the Seahawks on Monday Night Football. Marshawn Lynch vs. Steven Jackson, and Alex Smith vs. Kevin Kolb. Here’s our Week 14 NFC West previews.
Steve Lee our BC Lions blogger weighs in with some thoughts on the play of quarterback Travis Lulay. While it would be a shame and a huge loss for the Lions to see Lulay head south, the path taken by Mervyn Fernandez, Jeff Garcia, Doug Flutie and Warren Moon shines a light on the road that lies ahead.
Insider Steve breaks down the Seattle Seahawks defensive side of the ball in his week 3 matchup rundown. Led by Super Bowl XL holdover Leroy Hill the Seahawks have managed to assemble a group of guys who seem to do the little things right. They don’t over pursue on tackles, and they never seem to be out of position in passing situations.
