Week 7 Preview: Thursday Night Football— The Seahawks and the Niners

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks Thursday Night matchup against the 49ers– It’s likely that neither of these situations have the Seahawks players that are involved legally at fault for anything criminal at this point. Still, they were there, it happened, it’s on the news and it needs to not happen anymore. All these things serve as a distraction and take away the focus the team needs now, more than ever.

Do Or Die – Seahawks Host Panthers And Must Win

NWSB Writer, and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks hosting the Panthers on Sunday– No more meltdowns—that’s the easy way to write up what the Seahawks need to do better defensively. After leading 24-7 in the fourth quarter last week, the defense got soft and allowed the Bengals to tie the game, then win it in overtime. That just can’t happen.

Rapid Reaction:  Seahawks Squander Lead, Fall To Bengals

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reacts to the Seahawks stunning loss to the Bengals– A dominant defense. Smart, big plays on offense. Defensive touchdowns. It all added up to type of Seattle Seahawks game we are used to seeing from this team with one exception. They forgot that they are supposed to play four quarters, not three.

Not So Rapid Reaction — Seahawks Steal Win From Lions

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reviews the Seahawks questionable win over the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football– The fact is, every team gets breaks on calls and bad breaks on others. The officials, both replacement and regular, are human and make mistakes. They miss calls and I, for one, don’t want to review every play of every game. I would argue that bad calls are actually good for the game as they create discussion, controversy, and give guys like me stuff to write about.

Gut Check Time:  Seahawks at Bengals In NFL Week 5

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews NFL Week 5 for the Seattle Seahawks– On deck for the Hawks is a trip to Cincinnati to face the undefeated Bengals. This is not going to be an easy game for Seattle, especially with their inconsistent play thus far and the fact that the Bengals will likely be looking at this game as a game that can legitimize their place as an NFC power in the conference.

Prime Time:  It’s The Lions And The Seahawks On Monday Night

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks MNF matchup against the Lions– One thing I do like so far about the Kris Richard version of Carroll’s defense is that he seems to be willing to dial up blitzes a bit more often than his predecessors, Bradley and Quinn. That’s good news too because I feel the Seahawks will have to do that often to get Stafford out of his element and to take some of the pressure off of the Seahawks secondary trying to cover Megatron and Tate.

Rapid Reaction: A Tale Of Two Haves As Seahawks Shutout Bears

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reviews the Seahawks victory in their home opener against the Chicago Bears– The second half in all aspects of the game was fantastic but none more so than the first 12 seconds of the half where rookie Tyler Lockett ripped off a 105 yard kickoff return for a touchdown. 105 yards is a new Seahawks team record surpassing the previous high of 101 yard by Leon Washington. Lockett has been brilliant returning punts and kicks this year and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball.

Seahawks Due For Win In Home Opener With Bears

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Hawks home opener against the Bears– The tardy one, Kam Chancellor, finally reported this week. It’s still somewhat of a question as to whether or not he plays against the Bears this week. Reports say he’s in great physical shape but gym shape is not game shape. Only games get you there and Kam missed all of the pre-season that is designed to get guys into game shape.

Rapid Reaction – Seahawks 0-2 But Don’t Panic Just Yet

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, examines the Seahawks 0-2 start and latest loss to the Packers– I have had enough of Michael Bennett and this offsides stuff. Three times in this one Bennett jumped offsides, Aaron Rodgers saw it, went deep, and burned the Seahawks for big plays and scores.

Can the Seahawks Bounce Back From Their Week 1 Stumble?

NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks in Week 2– Next for the Hawks it’s the Green Bay Packers, on the frozen tundra, no less. To call this game a tough match up early on for Seattle is a bit of an understatement. The Seahawks are going to have their hands full. Here’s a few of the things I’ll be watching closely for as the Seahawks try to take it to the Pack Sunday night.

Seahawks Spotlight:  Tyler Lockett Looks Like The Real Deal Holyfield

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, spotlights the amazing performance of rookie Tyler Lockett– The thing I liked about that play is it was a simple seam route but Lockett managed to get a couple of steps on the defender almost immediately. That’s the kind of speed Lockett possess and the kind of speed that the Seahawks best receivers haven’t had since a guy named Harvin played at least part of the time.

Does Russell Wilson Even Want To Be A Seattle Seahawk?

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, shares thoughts on the possibility that Wilson wants to leave Seahawks– The Seahawks GM, John Schneider, is one of the best, if not the best, in the NFL. He and Carroll built this team their way and have built a culture their way and found success on their terms doing it their way. I have no doubt that the Seahawks have zero thoughts on changing the team to satisfy the preferred playing style of any one player, even Wilson.
