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.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater brings us an update after the first day of the CFL Free Agency Period. With 20 moves on the first day, the BC Lions did their part to try and stay as active as they could be. Bringing in DE Julius Williams from Edmonton, and losing LB James Yurichuk to Toronto. GM Wally Buono was busy re-signing two players who were not in the free agent class, Paris Jackson, and Korey Banks. With plenty of time still remaing, Phil thinks that there will still be more singings in Leos camp soon.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens breaks down the past and current legal troubles of LeRoy Hills. The linebacker’s legal troubles have plagued him for some time now, and his off-the-field issues are becoming tiresome to even write about. Most recently, Hills has been arrested on the charges of Individual Domestic Violence and Assault Individual. If he returns to the NFL, he could be facing a suspension.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with a game by game statistical breakdown for Russell Wilson’s rookie season. There were plenty of highs, and only a couple lows for Wilson in his inaugural NFL season. He led the Seahawks to the playoffs, and a win on the road against the Washington Redskins in the Wild Card Round. The bumps that come along for most rookies seemed to be shrugged off like a seasoned veteran for Wilson…
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us the path for the 6 Seahawks to get into this weekend’s Pro Bowl. Let’s take a look at how these six made it to Hawaii. Russell Okung and Max Unger protected Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch while Earl Thomas led the defense all year long. Leon Washington’s record tying season didn’t hurt, either.
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. He is now in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, and Helfrich is ready to take over. UO’s newest head coach is someone the team and its fan base can be proud of. He knows Chip Kelly’s system, he’s willing to throw the football and he is a Duck for life.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth gives you his analysis of Seattle’s draft picks that ended up impressing instead of disappointing Seattle fans. Mel claimed that Bruce Irvin was more of a late-second round value, Bobby Wagner could have been taken a round later, and he questioned the Russell Wilson pick, considering the Seahawks recently brought in Matt Flynn to likely be the starter.

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with another installment of the Seahawks Week That Was. Intended to be a fun column, with lots of laughs and other good stuff. Normally it will be a top 10 list, a la David Letterman style. The last one of the year kids. Not exactly a good way to go out, but it was a wild ride, just like much of the 2012 Seattle Seahawks football season. Russell Wilson gets snubbed in the ROY votes, coaches trying to poach our staff, and should we have tried for the FG to win the game? All that and more in the final “week that was” installment for this year.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Bryan McFarlane gives you the reasons why the Seahawks were NOT able to handle the Falcons this past Sunday. He says Pete Carroll has a great thing going and the next few seasons are sure to be entertaining and very successful. But Sunday nobody stepped up in Chris Clemons absence. The Seattle pass rush was non-existant. Matt Ryan had to much time. Where was Bruce Irvin? Sigh…
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Chris Hall breaks down the comparisons between current Hawks player Bobby Wagner and former Hawks player Lofa Tatupu. The two players have eerily similar physiques, eerily similar stats (as rookies) and could end up having eerily similar careers. If Wagner progresses the same way Tatupu did, Seahawks fans can look forward to a solid presence at MLB for years to come.
