NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott tells us today that all signs pointed toward former starting full back Michael Robinson returning to the Seattle Seahawks this week, and that’s just what happened. In uniform and on the field Michael Robinson is a proven full back with all the skills you could ask for in a guy that plays that position. Robinson is a great lead blocker for Marshawn Lynch. Backup fullback Spencer Ware has landed on IR. Percy Harvin comes back soon too.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us his take on the return of all-star WR Percy Harvin to the Seahawks lineup in the not-so-distant future. How will Harvin’s return effect Jermaine Kearse? Kearse is currently Seattle’s #4 WR. He’s also been picking up the bulk of the kickoff return duties. Kearse in a limited amount of playing time has 7 catches for 111 yards. By adding Harvin to the roster the Seahawks will have to drop a name from the roster. Who do they drop?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you his thoughts on the return to the Seahawks roster this week of the suspended Bruce Irvin. Bruce Irvin will join the team as a strong side linebacker (SAM), probably replacing Malcolm Smith as the starter. Smith has played well this season including a big forced fumble against the Texans last weekend. Mike Morgan, or Benson Mayowa could make way for him this week.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell takes a look at the state of the Seahawks fair-weather bandwagon fan among other things in this piece. The expectations of this team are sky high, and with that comes sales of caps, jerseys and merchandise of our beloved team to people who really shouldn’t be wearing them. Plus, Clinton takes a look at some of the recent cuts of Michael Robinson, Antoine Winfield and Brady Quinn.
NWSB Managing Editor Q tells us the players who did not survive the second waive of roster cuts today with the Seattle Seahawks. He lays out the Seahawks 53 man roster as it stands today. Check back tomorrow to see the OFFICIAL 53 man roster as of tomorrow Saturday September 1st 2013. (We expect it to change every day until they play the Panthers). Russell Wilson is the starting QB and Tarvaris Jackson is the backup. This much is certain. Michael Robinson & Antoine Winfield are gone.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again weighs in with his 53 man roster defense predictions for the Seahawks following their Week 4 preseason game versus the Oakland Raiders. Positives. A familiar name will be cut at linebacker. Allen Bradford’s great play has made Heath Farwell expendable. John Lotulelei has a skill set that can’t be taught. Jason LaCanfora has reported that he has heard reports that the Seahawks are releasing Antoine Winfield.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again weighs in with his 53 man roster predictions for the Seahawks following their Week 4 preseason game versus the Oakland Raiders. On O-line Russell Okung, Paul McQuistan, Max Unger, JR Sweezy, Breno Giacomini and James Carpenter were easy locks and to a lesser extent so was Lemuel Jeanpierre. Brett believes that Pete Carroll and John Schneider drafted Spencer Ware with the intention of having him replace Michael Robinson for cap relief.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Jonas Hyde takes a look at the Seattle Seahawks rookie sensation, 2nd round draft pick out of Texas A&M, Christine Michael. His NFL preseason week 1 debut was a solid performance that has fans everywhere wondering if he may be moving up the depth chart. Though his performance was good, he has a lot of work to do before the backup running back battle with Robert Turbin and Spencer Ware can become a real discussion.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Chris Hall weighs in with his five Hawks lineman that he believes will make up the 2013 Seahawks starting offensive line. Russell Okung, Max Unger, James Carpenter, Paul McQuistan and Breno Giacomini. Chris points out the foundation of what should be one of the best offenses in the NFL. And it all starts with the big five up front. Sophmore QB and incumbent starter Russell Wilson can sleep easy at night.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger J.D Burke breaks down the team’s future at receiver. The Seahawks now have four starting-caliber players in Percy Harvin, Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate. Sometimes there really can be too much of a good thing. Where Pete Carrol, John Schneider and the Seahawks are concerned at wide receiver, that just may be the case.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens gives you his opinion on who will be the backup quarterback to Russell Wilson in Seattle. The release of Josh Portis after his alleged DUI helped to clear some things up, as Brady Quinn will likely step into the role due to his experience and talent. Don’t count out Jerrod Johnson, though, as he does has a unique skill set that could prove valuable in Seattle.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Bruce Irvin’s suspension of four games for using banned substances. Seattle’s somewhat surprise of a first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, reports have come out that he was suspended for using Adderall, a medication that has become all too familiar with the Seahawks. Last year, Richard Sherman (accused) and Brandon Browner was suspended for four games for using the substance, though Sherman fought his suspension and ended up winning.
