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.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, shares thoughts on the possibility that Wilson wants to leave Seahawks– The Seahawks GM, John Schneider, is one of the best, if not the best, in the NFL. He and Carroll built this team their way and have built a culture their way and found success on their terms doing it their way. I have no doubt that the Seahawks have zero thoughts on changing the team to satisfy the preferred playing style of any one player, even Wilson.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the deal that brought Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks. Sending Unger to the Saints, however, that is a steep price. Scott realizes Unger has missed multiple games the past couple of seasons, but when he is on the field, the offensive line is a much better unit. Unger’s departure leaves starting vacancies at center, along with left guard since James Carpenter has already been sent away too.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at draft possibilities and positions for the Seahawks first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft– While it’s true that most of these guys should be ready for the start of the 2015 season, excluding Lane, that’s a lot of injuries, surgeries and rehabs that have to go well with no backup. It certainly wouldn’t hurt the Seahawks to draft a corner in the first round.
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.
