NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens is back to weigh in with his analysis of the Seahawks newest DAY 1 starting QB Russell Wilson. He loves him because he can’t help but be excited about Russell Wilson’s potential. He hates the decision because as well as Russell Wilson has played in preseason, there are many holes in his game.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth weighs in on the upcoming Week 2 NFL preseason match up with the Denver Broncos. Terrell Owens did not dress down for the preseason opener.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger and 12th man season ticket holder Brett Bivens says even if Peyton Manning is ready to go and play at the level he was at in the 2010 season he is better suited for a team that is a quarterback away from being championship contenders.
