NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens will weigh in each week with his blue print for a Seahawks win on Sunday. This week it’s a bit of a homecoming for a few players as the Hawks host the Jacksonville Jaguars. Brett says this game should be a walk in the park with the Hawks taking down the Jags by a score of 35-3, but, he says that coming off a huge win against the Niners last week could lead the team straight into a trap. Let’s hope it’s the latter and not the former we see this Sunday.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with his first Seahawks Moments In Time piece of the new year. Well, football is back, and so are the winning ways of the Seahawks. It wasn’t pretty, but it was a classic NFC East matchup, it’s just too bad that neither Carolina nor Seattle are in the NFC East. Tough guys to lose to injury this week though. We all knew we were going to be without Chris Clemons and Cliff Avril for the opener, but Brandon Browner too? Wow. Big Win.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again weighs in with his 53 man roster predictions for the Seahawks following their Week 4 preseason game versus the Oakland Raiders. On O-line Russell Okung, Paul McQuistan, Max Unger, JR Sweezy, Breno Giacomini and James Carpenter were easy locks and to a lesser extent so was Lemuel Jeanpierre.

Russell Okung, Max Unger, James Carpenter, Paul McQuistan and Breno Giacomini. Chris points out the foundation of what should be one of the best offenses in the NFL.

Seattle Seahawks blogger Jones Hyde weighs in today on the news about GM John Schneider and his contract extension. Jonas goes on to say Pete Carroll will be next to hit a payday. With Carroll’s original 5-year deal running through 2014, it is a given that an extension will be done within the year to keep the tandem together. After the extension is done, the real work will only just be starting. Richard Sherman & Russell Wilson are nice picks by the way.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens gives us his take on the team’s final pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. With the final selection, the team chose Michael Bowie, a tackle out of Northeastern State. There’s not a lot of footage on this young man, so Bivens uses his conference call to form an opinion.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you his top five performers for the Seattle Seahawks this year. To say the Seattle Seahawks had a somewhat surprising season in 2012 would be an understatement. While they did come into the new year with a youthful roster that was built on potential, many believed the Seahawks would be a middle-of-the-pack 7-9, 8-8, or 9-7 team. Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas, Bobby Wagner, Marshawn Lynch & Richard Sherman make the grade.
