NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us this week’s moments in time. We go back to 2009 when the last time the Jacksonville Jaguars came to Seattle to take on the Seahawks and left 41-0 losers. Matt Hassellbeck hit both Nate Burleson and TJ Houshmanzadeh for 2 touchdowns a piece in the bulldozing.
NWSB Insider Jonas Hyde brings us a piece on the emergence of former Husky Jake Locker. With the Washington native taking over the reigns for the Titans officially last year, this will be the first year that the team has been built for him specifically. Taking a page out of Pete Carroll’s, the Titans have themselves set up to make a splash in the AFC with young Locker behind center.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens takes us on a trip down memory lane, this time bringing us his first edition of the Seahawks all time offensive weapons. Starting with the QB, and the most hotly contested debate among the top three Hawks QB’s of all time. Jim Zorn, Dave Krieg, or Matt Hasselbeck? This exact question is finally answered
Peter Edlund recaps the career of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Brady Quinn. No, not the NFL career. The endorsement. Quinn is a below-average player from an above average university of arrogance. Edlund is not a fan of Quinn or Notre Dame, but he’s willing to welcome the QB to the Seattle family. As long as he only sees the field in blowouts, of course.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us his reasons why Russell Wilson is Seattle’s first FRANCHISE quarterback. He says the Seahawks have had Jim Zorn, Matt Hasselbeck, and Dave Krieg. All had great careers, but were never really considered “franchise quarterbacks.” Russell Wilson will surpass them all. With his time spent in the film room, it wouldn’t surprise to see a career passer rating in the triple digits either. Watch out record books.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Clinton Bell brings us the newest installment to the NWSB page, the hypothetical What If questions, Seahawks Version. Where to begin. Clinton starts off with the question of where would this team been without the trades that brought us Steve Largent, and Matt Hasselbeck. Two of the all time greats that ever wore a Seahawks uniform. And yes, he also touches on the Drew Bledsoe, Rick Mirer saga.

Richard Sherman had the longest blocked kick return for a TD in team history.
NWSB Insider and Seahawks’ blogger Ben Tole talks about Seattle’s rivalry with the Arizona Cardinals. That being said, and considering the Seahawks face an important home game this weekend against Arizona, I’d like to take a deeper look at what the Seahawks-Cardinal rivalry has become. Ken Wisenhunt, made the Cardinals relevant, much like the combination of Matt Hasselbeck, Shaun Alexander and Mike Holmgren had done for Seattle.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens weighs in today with some comparisons on the QB position in Seattle. He’s not saying Russell Wilson will have the type off career that Matt Hasselbeck had in Seattle, but the next time you think to yourself “Russell isn’t working out,” realize that he has been better in almost every category than Matt was through 8 starts. Tarvaris Jackson, Trent Dilfer & Matt Flynn are also included in this post.
NWSB Insider and Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us a good piece on the Seattle Seahawks today. QB Russell Wilson is under the spotlight. Work Ethic. When it comes to Russell Wilson, he has that. Drew Brees and Matt Hasselbeck are the players who have the most similar numbers to Russell Wilson. The Seahawks selected Wilson with the 75th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
