NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Jordin Ereth talks about Seattle’s 2nd round draft pick Christine Michael. There are a few ways to react to this pick. One way is to question it like every other analyst seems to do whenever Pete and John make a selection in the early rounds. Or, you could go with the seemingly more popular “I have faith in the front office, considering their track record in previous drafts.” Jordin, however, tries to get inside the genius of Pete and John.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell brings us a special piece about the difference between the Mariners and the Seahawks.

I give the ownership’s of these two teams credit for that. The Seahawks ownership is always moving forward, while the Mariners ownership seems content on being a lousy team.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson predicts what Seattle’s defensive line will look like in 2013. The Seahawks were one of the top defenses in the league last year.

But that wasn’t really the case.

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

Between Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor the secondary looks set.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us his reasons why Russell Wilson is Seattle’s first FRANCHISE quarterback.
