NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott takes a look at the Hawks’ roster and breaks down the deepest position. Bobby Wagner, Bruce Irvin, Malcolm Smith and KJ Wright are all featured, as well as predictions for the 2014 NFL season.
NWSB Insider & Blogger J.D. Burke weighs in on the recent releases of Sidney Rice and Red Bryant, and muses on which Seattle Seahawks could be next. Oh, the cruelty of the salary cap. James Carpenter, Chris Clemons, and Zach Miller are probably next up for John Schneider and Pete Carroll. Miller is one of the best blocking tight ends in the NFL…right?
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with the impending news of Sidney Rice’s departure from the Seahawks. The buyout is coming, Rice knows it, the front office knows it, and us fans know it too. Clinton gives us a glimpse into why this is not such a bad move for the Seahawks, and offers a memory of his from Rice’s tenure with the Hawks.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger JD Burke takes a look at some of the match-ups, personnel and otherwise, that will dictate the outcome of Seattle’s game against the St. Louis Rams in the spotlight on Monday. Both clubs are banged up, but the Rams are clearly on the worse end of things with that regard. The battle of the trenches is looked at in depth, as is the likelihood that Michael Bowie will hold his own against Robert Quinn.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you his Seattle first quarter of the season defensive stats. He points out Cliff Avril’s numbers are down, no doubt about it. He is on pace to have a career low in tackles and his least amount of sacks since 2009. Michael Bennett was brought back to Seattle for one reason, get after the quarterback. Bennett has not disappointed. Brandon Mebane is one of those players that the numbers always lie.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his weekly love em and hate from this week’s game against the Texans. The offense was shaky, but made the few plays but made the plays necessary to lead the team to victory. The defense didn’t allow a point in the second half and Richard Sherman made the game deciding play for Seattle with a pick six.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger JD Burke takes a look at some of the personnel matchups that will decide Sunday’s game at Century Link field, between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Seattle Seahawks. Words are not minced as the Jaguars are thoroughly bashed and the likes of Red Bryant, Richard Sherman and the Seahawks in general are praised. The one area of concern, Paul McQuistan.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger JD Burke takes a look at the statistical standouts from the Seattle Seahawks week 2 victory over their divisional rival San Francisco 49ers. The Seahawks defensive line did yeoman’s work on Sunday and the numbers provided in this post will surely convince you of the same. ProFootballFocus and other great stats sites are referenced. So are Brendan Mebane, Tony McDaniel, Bruce Irvin, Chris Clemons, O’Brien Schofield and Cliff Avril.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us three questions fans should still be asking themselves despite a strong start. Fiirst and foremost, we have to wonder if the team will see Percy Harvin in 2013. Sydney Rice, Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin make up a great trio of wide-outs, but Harvin is a matchup nightmare. Also, consistency on both sides of the ball is questionable. Cliff Avril returned against the 49ers, but Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin are still out.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us another moment in time. This time, we take a trip to late last season, when the 49ers came to town in a battle of playoff teams. After 3 50+ point performances, Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman did their best to do it again, but fell just short.
