Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with a piece about the Seahawks most prized possession: the Legion of Boom. From Kam to Earl, Browner to Sherm, these guys are the heart and soul of the Seahawks defense. Sure the offense has some nice weapons too, but the defense is what keeps the Hawks in games down the stretch. Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Brandon Browner, and now featuring Antoine Winfield. Look out.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another Pete Carroll & John Schneider move this week. They traded Matt Flynn to the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Jay Glazer first broke this story. Matt Flynn is a quarterback who wants his chance to start in the NFL. Brett can’t say wether he would have become outspoken about his unhappiness, but can assure you that he wanted to do more than just hold a clipboard on the sidelines. Good Luck Matt.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another free agency signing today that involved the Hawks bringing in yet another D-Lineman, this time Tony McDaniel. This move leads Brett to believe that the slim chance of Alan Branch rejoining the team has faded away. He wanted to see Branch come back to the team, and has a feeling that Alan has overestimated his value. He also fired his agent this week. Tough times.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth gives you his reasoning why your Hawks should take a run at the Honey Badger. Tyrann Mathieu has killed his draft stock due to his off-field issues and disappointing combine results. This will likely drop him to at least the second or third round, giving the Hawks the opportunity to snag him. Jordin is not saying we should reach on him, but if he is available…Pete Carroll & John Schneider are you listening?
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with the top needs, in his opinion, that the Seahawks need to address in the upcoming NFL Draft. The top needs, says Clinton, are TE, OT, OG, and OLB. He gives us two selections per each position, and where he thinks the Seahawks will select them in the draft. Also, he has a wishful thinking selection, but it is highly unlikely that this player will drop far enough in the draft for the Hawks to actually select him.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth gives you his 2013 NFL free agency recap thru 3 days for our Seahawks. Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett, Percy Harvin are all on board. DO Pete Carroll and John Schneider have anything left for an encore? All of these moves can only mean one thing: It is super bowl or bust for this Seattle team.
NWSB Managing Editor Q tells us the players who did not survive the second waive of roster cuts today with the Seattle Seahawks. He lays out the Seahawks 53 man roster as it stands today. Check back tomorrow to see the OFFICIAL 53 man roster as of tomorrow Saturday September 1st 2012. (I expect it to change every day until they play the Cardinals). Russell Wilson is the starting QB and Matt Flynn is the backup. This much is certain.
NWSB Insider Reggie Gill brings us a list of futility for current Seattle Seahawks players. Ex-GM Tim Ruskell was known for wanting a squeaky clean team, but Pete Carroll and John Schneider changed the ambience of the locker room. By signing the likes of Terrell Owens, Kellen Winslow, Marshawn Lynch, Golden Tate, Bruce Irvin, J.R. Sweezy, John Moffitt, and Braylon Edwards, its plainly obvious the new regime in Seattle would have given Ruskell a coronary!
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell tells us about his fearless predictions of who will be named the Seattle Seahawks starting quarterback. Matt Flynn has the pedigree to become a long time starter in this league, and with the addition of Russell Wilson in the draft, this leaves no room for returning starter Tarvaris Jackson.
NWSB Insider Brandon Choate brings us slightly troubling news today from the Seattle Seahawks camp. While OTA’s are voluntary for some, many people still make the effort to show up for a free team workout. One big name that has yet to show his face is DE Chris Clemons, who is entering his contract year with the Seahawks. He was supposed to be mentoring young Bruce Irvin.

Ex-GM Tim Ruskell was known for wanting a squeaky clean team, but Pete Carroll and John Schneider changed the ambience of the locker room. By signing the likes of Kellen Winslow, Marshawn Lynch, Golden Tate, Bruce Irvin and the resigning of LeRoy Hill, plainly obvious the new regime in Seattle would have given Ruskell a coronary!
