Jordin says we’ve got a heckuva a QB matchup tonight. Growing up, Russell Wilson was constantly told what he couldn’t do because of his size. Well he has obviously overcome the doubts and proved he can do damn near anything, and a big reason for that was Drew Brees.
NWSB Insider and Seahawks blogger Dave B previews Seattle’s Week 13 Monday Night Football matchup from Seattle. He gives you his prediction on where your bets should be put. Pro Bowlers LT Russell Okung and RT Breno Giacomini will be back on the field to protect Russell Wilson as will Pro Bowl center Max Unger.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott brings weighs in on the Hawks suspensions this week to Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond. Legion of Doom news. Sadly, Brian doesn’t think there is one and this might be the ultimate example of shooting yourself in the foot if you’re Browner. Browner has never had a big contract. Next man up. Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane both played extensively at this same time last year.

Brett points out even with Russell Okung, Max Unger and Breno Giacomini back on the line this week, again I’m projecting Okung and Giacomini play, it is going to be a tall order for them to stop the Vikings pass rush. Oh and welcome back Percy Harvin.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us a look at the historic season that the team is having in 2013. Although it was short-lived, the NFL decible record once belonged to the 12th man. This team has never in franchise history been 9-1, but that changed this year.

NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger JD Burke takes a look at the statistical standouts from the Seattle Seahawks week 10 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on the road. Atoning for his lackluster play calling of late, Darrell Bevell ran the ball often and well, with tons of help from his suddenly good offensive line. The main focus of this blog though is the Seahawks pass attack, which was absurdly good on Sunday.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down yesterday’s Hawks vs. Falcons game. Brett points out Marshawn Lynch was all Beast-mode Sunday running for a punishing 6.0 yards-per-carry for the 3rd time this season. Not bad with an offensive line that is missing 3 starters. (Max Unger, Russell Okung, and Breno Giacomini) Golden Tate’s 106 receiving yards were a single career high.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with his weekly Hawks week that was piece. Tough win eh? Again the Seahawks went to the brink against a far inferior team, only to come away with another W. These close games aren’t as fun as people say they are. Russell Wilson led the charge once again and Marshawn Lynch had a beastly game on the ground. Jermaine Kearse fumbled, but made up for it with a nice TD grab…
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott tells us today the 2013 Seattle Seahawk team is doing something this year that they did not do last year. Especially when you compare it to the 2nd half of last year’s team. That Brian points out is dangerous. The pressure will be on Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Walter Thurmond III and Byron Maxwell this week vs. Roddy White, Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzales & the Falcons.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with his weekly Hawks week that was piece. Tough win eh? If it wasn’t bad enough that our O line couldn’t protect our stars, the D line seemed to be just as bad. The Rams did whatever they wanted on the ground to the Hawks all game long, except when it counted. Russell Wilson ran for his life. Golden Tate taunted his way to a huge TD. Paul McQuistan couldn’t block anyone…
