NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us his top three candidates for the backup QB spot left empty when Matt Flynn was traded to the Oakland Raiders. Josh Portis is expected to re-sign. Tyler Thigpen leads Jordin’s list of hopeful replacements. He looks to be the least flashy, and most like Russell Wilson’s style of play.

NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another Pete Carroll & John Schneider move this week.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us some good reasons why Percy Harvin will make this Seahawks team even better. With his flat out speed, Harvin is the ultimate playmaker. He can take screen passes the distance, can take a handoff the distance and can take a punt or kick for a touchdown.

NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another free agency signing today that involved the Hawks bringing in yet another D-Lineman, this time Tony McDaniel.

NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on contract details of the Percy Harvin trade and signing this week. The Seahawks still have about $14.6 million left in cap room after releasing Leon Washington. More then enough to add some more cogs says Brett. The obvious point is this.

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with the five players who he thinks need to improve the most in 2013 if the Seahawks are going to make a serious push for the Super Bowl. The biggest name that comes to mind for Clinton is Seahawks rookie DT Bruce Irvin. He showed signs of both brilliance, and need of improvement in his rookie season. He ended up with 8 sacks on the year, but his play on first and second down, when called upon, is where the most work is needed. The WR corps of Sidney Rice and Golden Tate needs to improve too, with one of them finally coming out as the top WR threat for Russell Wilson.
