NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens breaks down the five positions Seattle must upgrade during the 2012 offseason. This piece is broken up into two segments. As fun as it will be to watch Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, Leon Washington, Max Unger, and Russell Okung in the Pro Bowl, the team has the Super Bowl in mind, and upgrading certain roster spots will help improve their chances next season.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the options for Matt Flynn as the Seahawks move forward into a promising offseason. But, in all the awesomeness that was Russell Wilson, Matt Flynn once again was left to stand on the sidelines wondering what would happen with his career.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth weighs in with part 2 of his year in review. A look at the Seahawks 2013 offense. The offense begins and ends with rookie 3rd round draft pick Russell Wilson. The words describing the greatness of this young man are endless. To put it simply, there is no quarterback on this earth I would rather have leading my team than Wilson. Such a positive attitude and he brought life to a city that needed it.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Phil Slater weighs in who is to blame for the Hawks’ loss to the Atlanta Falcons. For that, we have to start at the top—head coach Pete Carroll. When a head coach has two players of Russell Willson and Marshawn Lynch’s caliber, you have to keep the ball in the hands of the backfield. Also, the game plan clearly didn’t call for Tony Gonzalez to be such a crucial part of the conest.
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 Jordin Ereth weighs in with part 1 of his year in review. A look at the Seahawks 2013 defense. The Seattle Seahawks season began with a certain level of expectations. The defense was youthful with loads of promise and the offense held a top rushing attack.

NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Phil Slater weighs in today with another post on the strategy and tactics that could help the Hawks take down the Atlanta Falcons in their NFC playoff matchup.

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with another instalment 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. We’re back baby! The Seahawks finished off the regular season undefeated, beating the Rams in a game that was a lot closer than most of us would have wanted. But 8-0 at home is definitely something to be proud of, and none of those wins could have happened without us, the 12th man!
