NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his week 7 Love ‘em & Hate ‘em from the Thursday Night game between the Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. The Seahawks had plenty of chances to win this game, but blew each opportunity. Russell Wilson made beautiful throws, but his receivers kept dropping them while Brandon Mebane, Alan Branch, and Bobby Wagner allowed Frank Gore to own the middle of their defense.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with his top 5 impressions of the Seattle Seahawks 1st quarter of the season. Of course defense is the top impression on this list, and why wouldn’t it be? The rush defense has been incredible so far, giving up and average of under 70 ypg. The Seahawks could be sitting at 4-0, and none of this Russell Wilson vs. Matt Flynn talk would have been brought up by anyone.
Seahawks insider Brett Bivens breaks out his red sharpie today in his newest piece. He is handing out his 2012 first-quarter-grades to the Seattle Seahawks offense, defense and special teams. How will Marshawn Lynch, Michael Robinson, Sidney Rice, Zach Miller, and Doug Baldwin grade out? And how will up and comers like John Moffitt and Russell Wilson score? Nice wins over Dallas & Green Bay. Losses to the Cardinals and Rams.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his week 4 love em & hate em for the game against the Rams. The Seahawks blew a big opportunity in this game, by allowing poor play calling and poor performance kill their production. Russell Wilson’s 3 interceptions should not be pinned on him while Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin kept the game close with their physical running style and 160+ yards on the ground.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Alistair Corp tells us to him the following things went wrong for the Hawks on Sunday versus the St. Louis Rams. Last week: Chris Clemons? 4 sacks. Bruce Irvin? 2 sacks. Brandon Mebane? 2 sacks. Exciting prospect that a legitimate pass rush might join an elite secondary. Not so fast! Jason Jones and Alan Branch were the guys that got to Sam Bradford this week.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Alistair Corp tells us to him the best Seahawks TOUCHDOWN in week 3 vs. the Packers was the Russell Wilson to Golden Tate completion. They run a play action and Robert Turbin chips in a block before going into the flat on his route. PERFECT footwork by Russell Wilson on this touchdown, and a perfect catch by Tate in a win for Seattle.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell tells us about the first game on the docket for the Seahawks, a week one matchup versus the Arizona Cardinals. First game jitters will be abound for the Hawks as they are starting rookie QB Russell Wilson, and possibly rookie RB Robert Turbin. Also rookies Bobby Wagner and Bruce Irvin look to start their careers off on the right foot. Seahawks should win this one easily.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Sunday afternoon from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale Arizona when the Seahawks visit the Cardinals. When you play the Cardinals, retaining Larry Fitzgerald is typically step-one in the game plan. Since Matt Hasselbeck, the Seahawks have not been comfortable behind center. Is Russell Wilson the next big deal?
NWSB Insider & Seattle Seahawks blogger, 12th man, and season ticket holder Brett Bivens is back with some analysis of the gifted rookies starting this week versus the Arizona Cardinals.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell tells us his 5 guys who will help the Seahawks turn the corner and get over the .500 mark this season. Starting it off with Russell Wilson, the rookie QB phenom. If the Seahawks will win this year, it all starts with him and the offense. Matt Flynn will need to learn to be happy with the backup role. Robert Turbin is Clinton’s key to this years offense. Watch out for J.R. Sweezy on O-line too.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell tells us about the fourth pre-season match-up of the 2012 NFL football season. This week the Raiders travel to Seattle to face off against old AFC West foes the Seahawks. The 4th game of the preseason is all about getting down to the final 53 men. Don’t expect too many starters to make it into the 2nd quarter of this one.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Thursday night at Century Link Stadium in Seattle when the Raiders visit the Seahawks in NFL preseason action. Brett says he wants to see Charly Martin step on the field and ball out.
