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 draws comparisons of Russell Wilson to the Alex Rodriguez of 2000– Wilson is now faced with the same dilemma that A-Rod once was– Should he sign a deal for love of a town or for the most money? As a fan, it’s very easy to sit back and say, “oh, he should stay. I would. What can you buy with $25 million that you can’t buy with $18?”
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, questions the Seahawks as to why their star linebacker does not yet have a new contract– The Seahawk headlines have been dominated by Russell Wilson wants this, and Wilson wants that, his agent said this, this is the magic number he’s looking for and around and around we go. While I remain confident that Wilson’s deal will happen with the Seahawks I’m far more concerned about Wagner’s status.
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, ponders the idea that Seattle Seahawk’s QB Russell Wilson is not who he once was. From dating models and singers to demanding the richest NFL deal ever, clearly some things have changed– This is a guy, who I mentioned before, has always said, “team first”, even when it came to his contract negotiations.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott looks at the ongoing negotiations between the Seahawks and Russell Wilson– Seriously, Paul Allen has more dollars in his bank account than grains of sand found on the beach. The cash will come Wilson’s way and it will be a lot of cash, more than enough to take care of him, his children and his children’s children.
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 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 breaks down the Seattle Seahawks impending free agents– Maxwell is gone. He’s already said that he wants to see what’s out there in free agency. He’ll be the most sought after corner on the market and the Seahawks aren’t going to be able to keep him for financial reasons.
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.
