NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, shares his thoughts on the Seahawks playoff defeat against the Panthers– If you were fortunate enough to watch the Seattle Seahawks taking on the Carolina Panthers in the NFC divisional playoff game, you saw one of the most unique football games ever played in the NFL. Never have I seen both teams in a single game play at such a high level in one half and such a low level in the other half.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks second playoff game and second match up of the 2015/16 season against the Carolina Panthers– Lynch doesn’t quit. That’s the genesis of his nickname Beast Mode. It’s not in his character and seriously doubt it ever will be. Lynch is playing for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday and he’s going to get 100 yards rushing before the day is over.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks first playoff game of the 2015-6 NFL season– The Seahawks will face off against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Wild Card match up, a team that they simply destroyed on the same field just four games ago. All it means is that the Seahawks already have a proven battle plan to take the Vikings out of the playoff race early with another decisive victory in Minnesota.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks final regular season game for the 2015 season against the Arizona Cardinals– Arizona is one of the top two teams in the NFL right now and the Seahawks area beat up with injuries all over the place. Seattle will have to play a nearly perfect game in all three aspects to beat the Cardinals on their field.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks homecoming against the Browns– For years, everyone has talked about how Russell Wilson wasn’t elite, how he wasn’t the kind of QB that could put a team on his shoulders and take them to another level. It was always Marshawn Lynch or the great defense that somehow made Wilson’s contributions something less that elite.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reviews the keys to victory for the Hawks as they beat the Vikings 38-7– The Seahawks defense was absolutely suffocating the Vikings. I mentioned already Peterson finishing with 18 yards but the Vikings as a team had just 31 yards. The dominance by the defense allowed the Seahawks to possess the ball for 35:10 vs the Vikings 24:50.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Hawks upcoming game against the Vikings– As the NFL playoff picture comes into focus, the Seattle Seahawks still find themselves riding a very fine line. While it’s true if the Seahawks season were to end today they would make the playoffs, there is little to no margin of error for Seattle. Continuing to win is the only insurance for the Hawks in this scenario but their biggest remaining challenge to do so is up next—the Minnesota Vikings.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, share his expectations on the Seahawks matchup with the Steelers in Week 12– The Seahawks also continued to get burned by the 49ers against their tight ends. If I’m an offensive coordinator for Pittsburgh, I’m throwing the ball down the seam to my tight end almost continually until the Seahawks prove to me they can stop that play. In 2015, the Seahawks have yet to do it.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks important win over the 49ers if they are to keep their playoff chances alive– A starting NFL corner should be able to handle a tight end. Cary Williams was not up to the task in this one. He was replaced during the third quarter for precisely this reason.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks fifth, fourth quarter meldown of 2015– Yes, the bad offense contributes to the bad defense but the reverse is true as well. The Seahawks simply cannot start pointing fingers at one another if they expect to find a way to turn things around. Like Wilson, the defense just has to play better and not allow as many big plays and points.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks as they head to Dallas looking for some payback– Wilson has been downright awful at dealing with the blitz in 2015. There’s a failure on his part to recognize the blitz and react to it either with a quicker release, checking into a hot read pass, or checking into a run.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, critiques the Seahawks victory over the 49ers on Thursday night– Despite the win, this was not a good night for Russell Wilson. His two interceptions were both in the “really bad” category as far as his decision making is concerned. Both times his receivers were covered by two or more defenders. There was no need to force either of those throws and keep the 49ers hopes alive.
