NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, discusses the legacy of Seahawks Icon Matt Hasselbeck who has announced his retirement from the NFL– When coach Holmgren introduced the Seahawk faithful to Matt Hasselbeck, everyone was at least a little suspicious. Hass was just a sixth round pick who hadn’t started an NFL game—seriously, THIS is the guy Holmgren expected to turn our franchise around?
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, discusses the possibilities of a second hold out by Kam Chancellor– I think it’s fair to say that Chancellor’s hold out did damage the Seahawks 2015 season. How much it damaged the Seahawks season is debatable but I think everyone would conclude that on some level, his absence and subsequent return, didn’t do anything good for the team.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, speculates on the future of Pete Carroll in Seattle– What coach, who has been as successful and as revered as Carroll has been, would play out the final year of his contract without an extension being in place before hand if he intended on coaching beyond that final year?
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks fifth, fourth quarter meldown of 2015– Yes, the bad offense contributes to the bad defense but the reverse is true as well. The Seahawks simply cannot start pointing fingers at one another if they expect to find a way to turn things around. Like Wilson, the defense just has to play better and not allow as many big plays and points.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, examines the Seahawks 0-2 start and latest loss to the Packers– I have had enough of Michael Bennett and this offsides stuff. Three times in this one Bennett jumped offsides, Aaron Rodgers saw it, went deep, and burned the Seahawks for big plays and scores.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, shares thoughts on the possibility that Wilson wants to leave Seahawks– The Seahawks GM, John Schneider, is one of the best, if not the best, in the NFL. He and Carroll built this team their way and have built a culture their way and found success on their terms doing it their way. I have no doubt that the Seahawks have zero thoughts on changing the team to satisfy the preferred playing style of any one player, even Wilson.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, runs down his much too early game by game predictions for the Seattle Seahawks– Could the Hawks get off to a rocky start? The Seahawks are going to start the 2015 season 0-2 and everyone will be freaking out afterward.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, takes a look at how proposed NFL rule changes could impact the Seattle Seahawks. Most fans, including Seattle Seahawks fans, are not big on the idea of changing rules. Fans generally see rule changes as a way the league takes something away from the game. I’m afraid this year’s proposals for rule changes are not exceptions.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott runs through all of the Seahawks latest coaching changes for the 2015 season. Is this a case of Carroll giving a guy he likes and respects a job regardless of his experience? Maybe. There are other “Assistant Linebacker Coaches” out there. I suppose being an assistant coach for any specific squad is about as entry level as coaching jobs get in the NFL
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks loss in Super Bowl 49. Trailing by just four points, a time out in hand with just 20 seconds left in regulation, and with a 2nd down and goal at the 1 yard line , Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, made one of the most questionable decisions I have ever witnessed in a Super Bowl– He decided to throw the ball.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks NFC West Championship clinching victory over the St. Louis Rams. I have never seen Wilson take as many hard hits as did in this game. To his credit, he got up every time. Wilson hasn’t missed a game or any significant playing time due to injury in his entire three year career. I guess we can add toughness and durability to the long list of reasons to love this guy.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at the the Seahawks key meeting at home with their division foe, the San Francisco 49ers. The only thing missing in this matchup is that the game means less to the 49ers than it does the Seahawks in terms of their own playoff contention. I guarantee you that the 49ers would love nothing better than to come into Century Link and mess up Seattle’s playoff plans.
