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.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about two things that could spoil Seattle’s chances of coming away with a win in their opening game against the Carolina Panthers this coming Sunday. A combination of an early start time on the road as well as a depleted defensive line (No Bruce Irvin, Chris Clemons, Jordan Hill or Cliff Avril, more than likely) going up against Cam Newton could have the Seahawks leaving the East Coast with a bad taste in their mouths.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson predicts what Seattle’s defensive line will look like in 2013. The Seahawks were one of the top defenses in the league last year. Allowing just 306.2 yards per game, 5.1 yards per play, 15.3 points per game, 103.1 rushing yards per game, and 203.1 passing yards per game, you’d think Seattle would have managed to get to the quarterback more often than not. But that wasn’t really the case.
NWSB Insider and Seahawks’ Blogger Ben Tole talks about regardless of what the two teams at Century Link Field are playing for on Sunday the Hawks have been doing nothing over the last month but making statements.

Brandon Choate breaks down the Preseason Week 2 matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos in his Seahawks Love ‘em & Hate ‘em. Brandon loved Russell Wilson again, thinking he should get a shot at starting next week. He also loved the defensive overall play and the play of KJ Wright and Jeron Johnson. If the team can cut down on penalties, rush the QB and protect Jon Ryan on punts, things would be much better in Seahawkland.
