NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Alistair Corp after each week of the regular season and possibly during the NFL playoffs should the Hawks be so lucky. Game balls are awarded to the Hawks offensive MVP Vai Taua, what a game for the halfback/fullback. Mike Morgan was flying around the field and making plays on D. Steven Hauschka missed his second field goal of the preseason, but nailed two.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell tells us about the fourth pre-season match-up of the 2012 NFL football season. This week the Raiders travel to Seattle to face off against old AFC West foes the Seahawks. The 4th game of the preseason is all about getting down to the final 53 men. Don’t expect too many starters to make it into the 2nd quarter of this one.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Thursday night at Century Link Stadium in Seattle when the Raiders visit the Seahawks in NFL preseason action. Brett says he wants to see Charly Martin step on the field and ball out. He’d also like to see the Raiders Aaron Curry accidentally end up in position to make a tackle on Seahawks rookie RB Robert Turbin.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Reggie Gill weighs in tonight on the release of Seattle wide receiver Mike Williams. He says Mike won’t be missed noting a strong ground game with Marshawn Lynch and the O-line will help offset this roster move. Kellen Winslow Jr. and Zach Miller will step up as will Doug Baldwin, Sidney Rice, Ricardo Lockette, Ben Obomanu and Golden Tate.
NWSB Insider Dave B brings us another Northwest Athlete Profile of a hometown hero in Seattle. Marques Tuiasosopo was a leader and a champion as a Washington Huskies quarterback before entering the NFL with the Oakland Raiders.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back today Less than 1 week until the 2012 NFL Draft. We all know you can’t evaluate a draft until at least three years after said draft. So in saying that let’s recap the 2009 Seahawks draft class today. Aaron Curry, Max Unger, Deon Butler, Cameron Morrah are the only names that even need to be talked about. Thanks Tim Ruskell.
Seahawks insider Brett Bivens brings us news of a new signing in Seattle. Running back Kregg Lumpkin, formerly with the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Seattle Seahawks. Lumpkin will come in and compete for the backup job with Leon Washington and any other RB who joins the roster. Don’t expect Justin Forsett back in 2012.
A list of my top 5 Seattle Seahawks roster moves this season based solely on my opinion of the way they have effected the team this season as well as the impact they will have in the future. For starters with Aaron Curry traded rookie linebacker KJ Wright has been able to emerge. Zach Miller has been a force as a blocker. A Pete Carroll & Tom Cable coaching staff is SWEET.
