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). Mack weighs in on Super Bowl XL.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Sunday when the Hawks travel to San Francisco, to take on one of the three NFC West leading teams. Coming off a huge win against the Patriots, Seattle looks for another win against a team incredibly similar to their own. Will Russell Wilson pave the way to another win?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Reggie Gill weighs in today with some opinion on the Marshawn Lynch DUI arrest news coming out of Oakland this past weekend. He states this just couldn’t have happened at a worse time. He asks the questions, are the Seahawks prepared to start rookie Robert Turbin, Leon Washington, or gasp… Kregg Lumpkin? Maybe move Michael Robinson up into Lynch’s position?
NWSB Insider Brandon Choate brings us his reasons why the Seattle Seahawks should be the featured team on HBO’s Hard Knocks series. With the upcoming team competitions, the overwhelming personalities on the team, and the ability to show off their facilities and uniforms, the Seahawks would be the perfect team.

Seahawks insider Brett Bivens brings us his explanation of how Stanford offensive lineman David DeCastro could be the perfect pick for the Seattle Seahawks in the 2012 NFL Draft. With the 12th pick in the draft, the Seahawks can grab one of the best players from any position on the field out of college.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Insider Steve weighs in on the signing of Matt Flynn. Which he says gives the Seahawks flexibility in spades. Not only do they have their QB of the future, but now there is no need to waste valuable 2012 NFL Draft picks. Use the draft to fill in the holes that remain at left guard, defensive end, and linebacker. If Visanthe Shiancoe decides to sign elsewhere maybe tight end.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens tells us the Seahawks got their man. This isn’t exactly breaking news. Marshawn Lynch locked up before the franchise tag deadline.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens tells us last season the Seahawks aren’t making a huge splash in free agency signing other teams’ players but they are keeping their own core together. Last week it was Marshawn Lynch to avoid free agency, this week Heath Farwell, Red Bryant and now Michael Robinson have been re-signed by John Schneider and Pete Carroll and the Seahawks.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens tells us the what a great move it was by the Seahawks to sign Marshawn Lynch a 25 year old power back with 5 years experience who can handle the majority of the workload.

How will Tarvaris Jackson, Marshawn Lynch, Michael Robinson, Sidney Rice, Zach Miller, Robert Gallery, Mike Williams, and Doug Baldwin grade out? And how will up and comers like John Moffitt and Cameron Morrah score?

Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Brandon Browner, Michael Robinson and Marshawn Lynch all played in the Pro Bowl like they did all season long.
