NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you his top five performers for the Seattle Seahawks this year. To say the Seattle Seahawks had a somewhat surprising season in 2012 would be an understatement.

Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas, Bobby Wagner, Marshawn Lynch & Richard Sherman make the grade.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth weighs in with part 2 of his year in review. A look at the Seahawks 2013 offense. The offense begins and ends with rookie 3rd round draft pick Russell Wilson. The words describing the greatness of this young man are endless.

NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Phil Slater weighs in who is to blame for the Hawks’ loss to the Atlanta Falcons. For that, we have to start at the top—head coach Pete Carroll. When a head coach has two players of Russell Willson and Marshawn Lynch’s caliber, you have to keep the ball in the hands of the backfield.

On days when the Seahawks defense can’t hold on (granted they are on the field for the majority of the game) and the offense is… well being the Seahawks offense, the Special Teams help out both units.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Alistair Corp made us all jealous a couple weeks ago when he was able to catch up with former Seahawks All-Pro fullback Mack Strong. The definition of a class act, he answered all Alistair’s questions, and wasn’t TOO obnoxious when he beat me him a throwing contest (the difference between a 16-year NFL pro and a sports writer we suppose).
