NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us some Seahawk team records that are in danger of being broken this season. Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson are both in line to challenge multiple records while Brandon Browner and Steven Hauschka could chase some of their own. If Beast Mode stays healthy for the entire season and this offense runs like a well-oiled machine the sky is the limit says Brandon.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Sunday in Carolina when the Hawks visit the Panthers. Jordin points out this won’t be an easy game. The Seahawks play 5 road games at 10:00 am this season – at Carolina, Houston, Indianapolis, Atlanta, and New York (Giants). He can’t wait to watch Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Cam Newton, Steve Smith, Pete Carroll and Ron Rivera go at it.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott takes a look at the upcoming Week 1 2013 NFL matchup between our Hawks and the Cam Newton led Carolina Panthers. Early lines have the Seahawks by 3. I think they cover it easily. Brian’s biggest question. Can the Legion Of Boom contain Steve Smith? Brian says Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Walter Thurmond, Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman will have the WR’s from Carolina on lockdown.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again weighs in with his 53 man roster defense predictions for the Seahawks following their Week 4 preseason game versus the Oakland Raiders. Positives. A familiar name will be cut at linebacker. Allen Bradford’s great play has made Heath Farwell expendable. John Lotulelei has a skill set that can’t be taught. Jason LaCanfora has reported that he has heard reports that the Seahawks are releasing Antoine Winfield.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott takes a look at the reception that receiver Golden Tate received from the Green Bay Packer fans. He isn’t the team’s best player… or even their best wide-out. He also isn’t the team dirtiest player. So Brian took to social media to find the root cause of Wisconsin’s hatred. It’s no surprise the ‘Fail Mary’ plays a part, but it isn’t the play itself that causes fans to boo. Besides, the ‘bad call’ aside, perhaps the Packers should have simply played better.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Chris Hall has previewed the 2013-14 NFL season with his predictions of who will make the Pro Bowl. Russell Okung, Marshawn Lynch, Max Unger, Earl Thomas and Leon Washington should be returners. Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson, Brandon Browner, Kam Chancellor, Chris Clemons and Percy Harvin should be newcomers.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about four players on the Seahawks’ roster that he believes are in the top-5 of their positional groups. While football is the ultimate team sport (as he has mentioned previously), there are a few Hawks on the roster that stand out because of how successful and dominant they are at their position. Read on to find out who Chris believes cracks the top-5. Earl Thomas, Marshawn Lynch, Max Unger, Richard Sherman.
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger J.D. Burke weighs in with his impression of Byron Maxwell’s performance against the San Diego Chargers in the preseason. The hype so far has been about Walter Thurmond, and how he’s going to compete for a starting spot alongside Richard Sherman. However, Maxwell’s performance was statistically noteworthy.
Brand new NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott breaks his top 5 key matchups for the Seahawks as we head into the preseason. Of course the re-match against the Falcons makes the list, but there are a couple that probably wouldn’t jump out to most people. Brian explains his reasoning’s and goes in depth as to why these are the most important games for the Hawks in 2013. Russell Wilson vs. Matt Ryan, Drew Brees, Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick, and Andrew Luck. Good times!
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Bobby Wagner and how he is definitely not headed down the path for a sophomore slump. Boasting the speed and ferocity needed for a linebacker, the relatively unheralded Wagner will only get better in the coming year, and the Seattle defense will do so with him. Additions along the defensive line (Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett) and his development as a player will be main factors in allowing him to continue to dominate in 2013.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us an interesting look at the factors that could or could not lead to a Super Bowl title this season. Youth goes both ways, good and bad, while depth and talent will help give the Seahawks a major push. Their off field issues and injuries could hinder things, though, if the team isn’t careful. Watch the LOB push. The Legion of Boom – Brandon Browner, Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about what the worst case scenario for the 2013 Seattle Seahawks would be. While there are several things that could derail Seattle’s chance of reaching a Super Bowl, he believes that the greatest threat to the Seahawks would be the loss of Russell Wilson for more than three games, especially towards the end of the season. Chris believes Brady Quinn and Tarvaris Jackson, who are both contending for the backup QB spot, would not be able to produce enough wins for the team.
