Bruce Irvin gets sacked by the NFL

Bruce Irvin draft pick

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens recaps his thoughts on the four-game suspension of Bruce Irvin. After watching Winston Guy and Brandon Browner get suspended last season, as well as Richard Sherman fighting suspension for using Adderall, you’d think Bivens would have been smarter. The initial assumption in the minds of fans was probably that Irvin was taking steroids, but this just doesn’t make sense to the 12th man.

Future Seahawks LB? Alec Ogletree 2013 draft profile

Alec Ogletree

NWSB Insider Brett Bivens previews the 2013 NFL draft for the Seattle Seahawks, making an argument that they should target Alec Ogletree with their first pick. Having traded their first rounder for Percy Harvin, that means their first opportunity to grab him would be at No. 56 overall.

Bruce Irvin draft pick

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with the five players who he thinks need to improve the most in 2013 if the Seahawks are going to make a serious push for the Super Bowl. The biggest name that comes to mind for Clinton is Seahawks rookie DT Bruce Irvin. He showed signs of both brilliance, and need of improvement in his rookie season. He ended up with 8 sacks on the year, but his play on first and second down, when called upon, is where the most work is needed. The WR corps of Sidney Rice and Golden Tate needs to improve too, with one of them finally coming out as the top WR threat for Russell Wilson.

GM Wally Buono was busy re-signing two players who were not in the free agent class, Paris Jackson, and Korey Banks.

There were plenty of highs, and only a couple lows for Wilson in his inaugural NFL season.

Oregon Ducks, Mark Helfrich

NWSB Insider and Oregon Ducks blogger Bryant Knox explains why you should love the Mark Helfrich hiring as a Ducks fan. When Chip Kelly was hired as head coach, you had the feeling it wasn’t forever.
