NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Chris Hall has previewed the 2013-14 NFL season with his predictions of who will make the Pro Bowl. Russell Okung, Marshawn Lynch, Max Unger, Earl Thomas and Leon Washington should be returners. Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson, Brandon Browner, Kam Chancellor, Chris Clemons and Percy Harvin should be newcomers.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Jordin Ereth hits on the silver lining when it comes to Percy Harvin’s injury — Christine Michael. The rookie now has a chance to shine in the kick-return game with Harvin out. Players such as Devin Hester, Leon Washington and Dante Hall made careers in special teams, and now Michael has a chance early in his career to follow that path.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Erin Acacio breaks down the Seahawks 2013 NFC West schedule. With three prime time games, one against each NFC West foe, the Seahawks have a chance to really make a name for themselves in the rest of the country. The Hawks often get overlooked by an east coast biased national sports media market. The extra “love” this year will finally give them a chance to be seen, and heard nationally.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about why Kenjon Barner would be a valuable addition to the Seattle Seahawks. A product of the University of Oregon, Barner has a year of experience as a starter under his belt and has demonstrated excellent speed on the edges and can be a multi-tooled player at the next level. His biggest impact with the Seahawks could potentially be at special teams. Exit Leon Washington. Enter Percy Harvin, & Barner?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us some good reasons why Percy Harvin will make this Seahawks team even better. With his flat out speed, Harvin is the ultimate playmaker. He can take screen passes the distance, can take a handoff the distance and can take a punt or kick for a touchdown. He is one of the most dynamic players in the NFL today according to Brandon. Coupled with Russell Wilson expect some colorful trickeration.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on contract details of the Percy Harvin trade and signing this week. The Seahawks still have about $14.6 million left in cap room after releasing Leon Washington. More then enough to add some more cogs says Brett. The obvious point is this. Harvin’s new six year $67 million contract gives him the extra money in the bank for a nice NEW ride.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on the breaking news of the Percy Harvin deal. Not only will this bring a top flight NFL receiver (in his prime) to the Seahawks, but also has to bring the Hawks offense up the echelons in the NFC. The biggest questions now will be, will Harvin be able to keep himself healthy this year, and who will be the odd man out in the WR corps.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you his top five performers for the Seattle Seahawks this year. To say the Seattle Seahawks had a somewhat surprising season in 2012 would be an understatement. While they did come into the new year with a youthful roster that was built on potential, many believed the Seahawks would be a middle-of-the-pack 7-9, 8-8, or 9-7 team. Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas, Bobby Wagner, Marshawn Lynch & Richard Sherman make the grade.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us the path for the 6 Seahawks to get into this weekend’s Pro Bowl. Let’s take a look at how these six made it to Hawaii.
