NWSB Writer Brett Bivens talks about five standout players from the Seattle Seahawks’ game against the Carolina Panthers.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell tells us about the fifth game of the season for the Seahawks, a Sunday morning matchup with the Carolina Panthers. 10:00 start times have not been too favorable for the Seahawks, but this game could be a good time to break that mold.

Another Bowl season for the Dawgs perhaps?

The health of #1 WR Sidney Rice makes the list, as does the 2012 QB competition between Tarvaris Jackson, Matt Flynn, and Russell Wilson. Pretty special to see the DB’s too.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Matt Church asks us the serious question of whether or not the Seahawks will have a top defense again in 2012? With the departure of David Hawthorne there is an empty space. Let’s hope that is filled by the rookie Bobby Wagner.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens tells us today the Seahawks have filled another need with the draft of Florida defensive lineman Jaye Howard. With the 114th overall selection. Per ESPN, Howard’s a disruptive one-gap defender who doesn’t anchor very well, but excels at making plays in the backfield. Pete Carroll puts a premium on press-rush pressure without a lot of blitzes, he’ll fit in fine.
NWSB insider Brandon Choate updates us today on the Seattle Seahawks free agency frenzy.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Insider Steve weighs in on the signing of Matt Flynn. Which he says gives the Seahawks flexibility in spades. Not only do they have their QB of the future, but now there is no need to waste valuable 2012 NFL Draft picks. Use the draft to fill in the holes that remain at left guard, defensive end, and linebacker. If Visanthe Shiancoe decides to sign elsewhere maybe tight end.
