NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching Sunday when the Hawks travel to Miami to take on Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins. It is the first match up with a fellow rookie quarterback in Russell Wilson’s young career. However, both have varied results in their initial campaigns.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Ben Tole addresses the “East Coast Curse” in preparation of this week’s matchup against the Miami Dolphins. Since the 2008 season, the Seahawks are 1-6 when playing in the East Coast. Records can sometimes be misleading when trying to decide how a team actually performed—this is not one of those times. Seattle’s secondary will be looking to rattle a struggling young quarterback in Ryan Tannehill, and Marshawn Lynch will be going up against one of NFL’s top running defenses.
NWSB Insider Matt Church brings us his take on possible targets for the Seattle Seahawks on Day 2 of the 2012 NFL Draft. The Seahawks got Bruce Irvin last night. They hold picks 43 (2nd round) and 75 (3rd round) today and could be looking at linebackers and offensive players according to Matt. Could the Seahawks target a Zach Brown or Mychal Kendricks or will they look offense?
NWSB insider Brandon Choate brings us an interesting take on the Seattle Seahawks holding the 12th overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft. Do they trade the 12th pick for extra spots in the draft? Or do they choose the player they are in love with? Leave it to Pete Carroll and John Schneider to make the best of the situation…no matter what. Melvin Ingram, Quinton Coples, Ryan Tannehill? We’ll know Thursday.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Matt Church says say NO to drafting a quarterback in the first round Pete Carroll. Even though Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill the Most Valuable Player at the Car Care Bowl has looked good his draft status is inflated due to Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. The Seahawks have other needs, more pass rush and linebacker help is required asap.
Seahawks insider Brandon Choate brings us his reasons why the recent dinner date between Seattle Seahawks brass and QB Ryan Tannehill was a smokescreen. Although the Seahawks are in favor of drafting another quarterback, Tannehill’s value will ultimately put him out of reach. The Seahawks have more pressing needs than another QB in the 2012 NFL draft.
Seahawks insider Brandon Choate brings us his take on the Seattle Seahawks front office and the free agency madness. With a small batch of viable free agent quarterbacks and a thin crop of QBs in the 2012 NFL Draft, he feels that Tarvaris Jackson is still the right man for the starting quarterback job with the Seahawks. He aslo trusts Pete Carroll and John Schneider.
Seahawk insider Brandon Choate brings us an article of epic proportions today. He lists his top 5 positions the Seattle Seahawks need to fill through the 2012 NFL Draft. The Seahawks should consider players like Robert Griffin III, Chris Polk, Dre Kirkpatrick and Andre Branch. They will instantly compliment the talent on the team already. Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Marshawn Lynch, Sidney Rice.
