NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the deal that brought Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks. Sending Unger to the Saints, however, that is a steep price. Scott realizes Unger has missed multiple games the past couple of seasons, but when he is on the field, the offensive line is a much better unit. Unger’s departure leaves starting vacancies at center, along with left guard since James Carpenter has already been sent away too.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at draft possibilities and positions for the Seahawks first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft– While it’s true that most of these guys should be ready for the start of the 2015 season, excluding Lane, that’s a lot of injuries, surgeries and rehabs that have to go well with no backup. It certainly wouldn’t hurt the Seahawks to draft a corner in the first round.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks insider Brian Scott takes a look at three affordable free-agent targets for the Hawks in 2015. I know we are still hearing a lot of optimistic talk from the Seahawks right now about their ability to re-sign starting corner Byron Maxwell, but I just don’t buy it. Maxwell is going to go after the biggest deal he can get and that puts him out of reach financially for the Seahawks.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the Seattle Seahawks impending free agents– Maxwell is gone. He’s already said that he wants to see what’s out there in free agency. He’ll be the most sought after corner on the market and the Seahawks aren’t going to be able to keep him for financial reasons.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us a review of the Packers/Seahawks game from Week 1 and his watch list for their matchup in the NFC Championship Sunday. The Beast Mode-esk Eddie Lacy is the real deal for the Packers. The Seahawks have to contain the powerful runner which will be no easy task. Given Rodgers’ troubles with his leg I actually expect the Packers will try to establish Lacy early and often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks first playoff game of the 2014 NFL Season. Carolina has to take some shots in this one and the Seahawks need to be ready for it. Newton is a bit banged up so he may not be as mobile as he normally is which is yet another reason I expect the Panthers will go deep and do so often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his breakdown of the Seahawks home victory over the 49ers. I never like it when the officiating gets in the way of a big rivalry game like this. While the Seahawks got a TD instead of a chip shot FG thanks to that bad call I still don’t think that call changed the game’s outcome. The 49ers never scored again in multiple attempts after that play.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawaks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks showdown with the Arizona Cardinals Week 12 of the NFL. Call it the Super Bowl jinx. Blame it on a mountain of injuries or a loss of depth at key positions during the off-season. Maybe you could even call it a combination of all three of those things but make no mistake about it. The 2014 Seattle Seahawks are playing for their proverbial playoff lives this Sunday as they square off with the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives you his takeaways for the Seahawks loss to the Chiefs. This kind of let down by the defense against the run really illustrates how badly it hurts them to have both their starting middle linebacker, Bobby Wagner, and their starting defensive tackle, Brandon Mebane, out at the same time. The only good news here is that Wagner should be back soon.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks’ victory over the New York Giants. What is Wilson going to do to fix his throwing issues? Russell Wilson is going to say the right thing. He’s going to do the right things this week in practice but the big question is, will it change anything?
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his list of things to watch as the Seahawks take on the Giants in week 10. Seattle is suffering through one of its worst seasons in terms of injured players in recent memory. The Seahawks could get a small army of regular starters back in time to face the Giants. Max Unger, Kam Chancellor, Jeremy Lane, Jeron Johnson and Jordan Hill are expected to return.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his watch list for the Seahawk’s game against the Raiders this weekend. On the surface, everything looks just so for the Seattle Seahawks in week 9 of the NFL schedule. After playing three of the last four games on the road the Hawks get to go home to the roaring comfort of Century Link Field to face a winless opponent in the Oakland Raiders
