NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reviews the Seahawks stunning win over the Cardinals in Glendale Sunday– Face it folks, Russell Wilson is the real deal. He’s on his way to the playoffs for the fourth time in his career and quite possibly, the Super Bowl for the third time in his career. 10 years from now we’ll have to debate whether or not he’s better than Peyton Manning.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks homecoming against the Browns– For years, everyone has talked about how Russell Wilson wasn’t elite, how he wasn’t the kind of QB that could put a team on his shoulders and take them to another level. It was always Marshawn Lynch or the great defense that somehow made Wilson’s contributions something less that elite.
NWSB Writer, and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks win over the Ravens– The Seahawks may have won big over the Ravens, but it came at a price in terms of injury. Thomas Rawls, whom I already mentioned, is out with a broken ankle. That ends his season. Derrick Coleman will be asked to step in as the next man up. I suspect signing another runner will happen this week as well.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks huge win over the Steelers– The Seahawks gave up nearly 200 yards of passing in just the first half and in the second half things only got worse for the Seattle secondary. Before leaving with two minutes to play with an injury, Roethlisberger threw for 456 yards against the LOB. The lack of a consistent pass rush allowed the veteran Roethlisberger to sit in the pocket for hours and pick the Legion of Boom to pieces.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, share his expectations on the Seahawks matchup with the Steelers in Week 12– The Seahawks also continued to get burned by the 49ers against their tight ends. If I’m an offensive coordinator for Pittsburgh, I’m throwing the ball down the seam to my tight end almost continually until the Seahawks prove to me they can stop that play. In 2015, the Seahawks have yet to do it.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks fifth, fourth quarter meldown of 2015– Yes, the bad offense contributes to the bad defense but the reverse is true as well. The Seahawks simply cannot start pointing fingers at one another if they expect to find a way to turn things around. Like Wilson, the defense just has to play better and not allow as many big plays and points.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks’ NFC West showdown against the Cardinals this Sunday– At 4-4, the Seahawks need this win at home against the Cardinals who lead the Seahawks by two games in the standings if they are to have any chance at another divisional crown. It won’t be easy however as the Cardinals are playing some of the best football we’ve seen from them in a very long time.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, recaps the Seahawks win in Dallas– Everyone knows that Wilson is capable of making every throw he missed in this game accurately and on time. I had assigned some of the blame for Wilson’s struggles this year throwing on the constant pounding he’s hand to endure due to the lack of solid play from his offensive line. I don’t think you can blame the O-line in this game as the line gave up zero sacks of Wilson
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks Thursday Night matchup against the 49ers– It’s likely that neither of these situations have the Seahawks players that are involved legally at fault for anything criminal at this point. Still, they were there, it happened, it’s on the news and it needs to not happen anymore. All these things serve as a distraction and take away the focus the team needs now, more than ever.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reacts to the Seahawks stunning loss to the Bengals– A dominant defense. Smart, big plays on offense. Defensive touchdowns. It all added up to type of Seattle Seahawks game we are used to seeing from this team with one exception. They forgot that they are supposed to play four quarters, not three.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks MNF matchup against the Lions– One thing I do like so far about the Kris Richard version of Carroll’s defense is that he seems to be willing to dial up blitzes a bit more often than his predecessors, Bradley and Quinn. That’s good news too because I feel the Seahawks will have to do that often to get Stafford out of his element and to take some of the pressure off of the Seahawks secondary trying to cover Megatron and Tate.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, weighs in on the Chancellor and Bennett contract disputes– With Chancellor staying home for camp and the Seahawks appearing unwilling to budge on their policy of not renegotiating contracts until they have a year or less left on them this could easily turn into a prolonged dispute. Despite whichever side you might find yourself on in this contract battle you have to applaud the job that GM, John Schneider, and Pete Carroll have done to keep most of this team together.
