NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks insider Brian Scott takes a look at three affordable free-agent targets for the Hawks in 2015. I know we are still hearing a lot of optimistic talk from the Seahawks right now about their ability to re-sign starting corner Byron Maxwell, but I just don’t buy it. Maxwell is going to go after the biggest deal he can get and that puts him out of reach financially for the Seahawks.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks loss in Super Bowl 49. Trailing by just four points, a time out in hand with just 20 seconds left in regulation, and with a 2nd down and goal at the 1 yard line , Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, made one of the most questionable decisions I have ever witnessed in a Super Bowl– He decided to throw the ball.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his Super Bowl preview: The Seahawks were tremendously bad last week at protecting the football. I don’t see any possible way they can win the game over Tom Brady if they turn the ball over five times again. Fortunately, turning the ball over that many times is not something we have seen from the Seahawks often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at Doug Baldwin’s mental state. Is he really always angry? Most people think it’s to get the attention of the press, get his name in the paper or on twitter. That might be a secondary benefit of his “anger act” but it’s not the real reason why does it. Do you want to know the real reason?
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks shocking win over the Packers in the NFC Championship. The Seahawks spent the better part of 56 minutes floundering offensively. In OT, Russell Wilson drove the Seahawks down the field and delivered the game winning touchdown, a beautiful check to a deep ball where he recognized one on one coverage on Jermaine Kearse.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us a review of the Packers/Seahawks game from Week 1 and his watch list for their matchup in the NFC Championship Sunday. The Beast Mode-esk Eddie Lacy is the real deal for the Packers. The Seahawks have to contain the powerful runner which will be no easy task. Given Rodgers’ troubles with his leg I actually expect the Packers will try to establish Lacy early and often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the Seahawks playoff win over the Panthers. For the Seahawks, it means that they advance to the NFC Championship game. The Hawks will play host to the Green Bay Packers a team they beat all the way back in Week 1 of the NFL Season. For the Panthers, it means it’s time to go home.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his watch list of the Seahawks upcoming showdown with the Arizona Cardinals. This is a very odd situation to say the least. I can’t remember seeing a 3rd string QB start for any team in a game this big, ever. Fortunately, Lindley does have some playing time in his career so we can get a small sample of what he can and cannot do as an NFL quarterback.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at the the Seahawks key meeting at home with their division foe, the San Francisco 49ers. The only thing missing in this matchup is that the game means less to the 49ers than it does the Seahawks in terms of their own playoff contention. I guarantee you that the 49ers would love nothing better than to come into Century Link and mess up Seattle’s playoff plans.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks big game in Philadelphia. Will the Eagle no huddle cause problems? The Seahawks like to rotate their defensive line for different situations, ie run vs. pass. They also change things up in terms of bringing in an extra DB or two in passing situations. The Eagle offense might not allow for those changes.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the Seahawks big win against the 49ers. The Seahawks won, but penalties persist. I get that the Seahawks play a style of defense that is going to lead to defensive holding calls, illegal contact and defensive pass interference a bit more than other teams. I can live with that. What I have a hard time with is the fact that most of these penalties are not amongst those three varieties.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks Thanksgiving Day matchup against the 49ers. Put simply, this game is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object and I’m not even talking about your digestive track after dinner either. No, it’s about which team hates the other enough to beat them and likely knock the other out of playoff contention.
