NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reviews the Seahawks latest win, this time over the Cleveland Browns– Wilson’s performance since the Seahawks lost to Arizona has been ridiculously good. It’s also been good enough that you have to consider him for the MVP award over Cam Newton. Just imagine where the Seahawks would be right now if Wilson had not played in their last five games. Isn’t that what defines an MVP?
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks homecoming against the Browns– For years, everyone has talked about how Russell Wilson wasn’t elite, how he wasn’t the kind of QB that could put a team on his shoulders and take them to another level. It was always Marshawn Lynch or the great defense that somehow made Wilson’s contributions something less that elite.
NWSB Writer, and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks win over the Ravens– The Seahawks may have won big over the Ravens, but it came at a price in terms of injury. Thomas Rawls, whom I already mentioned, is out with a broken ankle. That ends his season. Derrick Coleman will be asked to step in as the next man up. I suspect signing another runner will happen this week as well.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks as they head to Baltimore– It would be silly to ignore the devastating injuries the Ravens have been saddled with. The Seahawks have had their fair share of injuries too, but in the Seahawks case, the injuries have been a catalyst of team unity, dedication, and desire. For the Ravens, they have simply rolled over and died.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, reviews the keys to victory for the Hawks as they beat the Vikings 38-7– The Seahawks defense was absolutely suffocating the Vikings. I mentioned already Peterson finishing with 18 yards but the Vikings as a team had just 31 yards. The dominance by the defense allowed the Seahawks to possess the ball for 35:10 vs the Vikings 24:50.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Hawks upcoming game against the Vikings– As the NFL playoff picture comes into focus, the Seattle Seahawks still find themselves riding a very fine line. While it’s true if the Seahawks season were to end today they would make the playoffs, there is little to no margin of error for Seattle. Continuing to win is the only insurance for the Hawks in this scenario but their biggest remaining challenge to do so is up next—the Minnesota Vikings.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks huge win over the Steelers– The Seahawks gave up nearly 200 yards of passing in just the first half and in the second half things only got worse for the Seattle secondary. Before leaving with two minutes to play with an injury, Roethlisberger threw for 456 yards against the LOB. The lack of a consistent pass rush allowed the veteran Roethlisberger to sit in the pocket for hours and pick the Legion of Boom to pieces.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, share his expectations on the Seahawks matchup with the Steelers in Week 12– The Seahawks also continued to get burned by the 49ers against their tight ends. If I’m an offensive coordinator for Pittsburgh, I’m throwing the ball down the seam to my tight end almost continually until the Seahawks prove to me they can stop that play. In 2015, the Seahawks have yet to do it.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks fifth, fourth quarter meldown of 2015– Yes, the bad offense contributes to the bad defense but the reverse is true as well. The Seahawks simply cannot start pointing fingers at one another if they expect to find a way to turn things around. Like Wilson, the defense just has to play better and not allow as many big plays and points.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks’ NFC West showdown against the Cardinals this Sunday– At 4-4, the Seahawks need this win at home against the Cardinals who lead the Seahawks by two games in the standings if they are to have any chance at another divisional crown. It won’t be easy however as the Cardinals are playing some of the best football we’ve seen from them in a very long time.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, recaps the Seahawks win in Dallas– Everyone knows that Wilson is capable of making every throw he missed in this game accurately and on time. I had assigned some of the blame for Wilson’s struggles this year throwing on the constant pounding he’s hand to endure due to the lack of solid play from his offensive line. I don’t think you can blame the O-line in this game as the line gave up zero sacks of Wilson
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks as they head to Dallas looking for some payback– Wilson has been downright awful at dealing with the blitz in 2015. There’s a failure on his part to recognize the blitz and react to it either with a quicker release, checking into a hot read pass, or checking into a run.
