NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, relives his memories of the five no hitters thrown by Seattle Mariners pitchers– As I watched Hisashi Iwakuma accomplish one of a pitcher’s dreams Wednesday afternoon by throwing the 5th ever no hitter in Seattle Mariners history I realized just how lucky I am when it comes to no-hitters. I have no idea how many people have witnessed all five of the M’s no-hitters. It’s certainly not a few but it’s not many either and I feel fortunate to have seen them all.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the 2015 battle for Seahawks Wide Receiver Positions– I don’t want to debate the play call or whether or not Lockette should have come up with the catch or not here but that play is relevant to this discussion in that I have to wonder where Lockette is mentally now. Plays like that can do one of two things to a player. They can either define their career or they can be used as motivation.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott discusses the rise of Taijuan Walker and MIke Montogomery in the M’s rotation– Montgomery is not old but he is 26 and that’s fairly old for a rookie. One wonders why it took so long for someone who everyone regarded as talented to get the light turned on. Whatever the reason for that, I’m thankful he somehow did it after he came to the Mariners and for practically nothing.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott draws comparisons of Russell Wilson to the Alex Rodriguez of 2000– Wilson is now faced with the same dilemma that A-Rod once was– Should he sign a deal for love of a town or for the most money? As a fan, it’s very easy to sit back and say, “oh, he should stay. I would. What can you buy with $25 million that you can’t buy with $18?”
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, questions the Seahawks as to why their star linebacker does not yet have a new contract– The Seahawk headlines have been dominated by Russell Wilson wants this, and Wilson wants that, his agent said this, this is the magic number he’s looking for and around and around we go. While I remain confident that Wilson’s deal will happen with the Seahawks I’m far more concerned about Wagner’s status.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, shares thoughts on the possibility that Wilson wants to leave Seahawks– The Seahawks GM, John Schneider, is one of the best, if not the best, in the NFL. He and Carroll built this team their way and have built a culture their way and found success on their terms doing it their way. I have no doubt that the Seahawks have zero thoughts on changing the team to satisfy the preferred playing style of any one player, even Wilson.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, ponders the idea that Seattle Seahawk’s QB Russell Wilson is not who he once was. From dating models and singers to demanding the richest NFL deal ever, clearly some things have changed– This is a guy, who I mentioned before, has always said, “team first”, even when it came to his contract negotiations.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott looks at the ongoing negotiations between the Seahawks and Russell Wilson– Seriously, Paul Allen has more dollars in his bank account than grains of sand found on the beach. The cash will come Wilson’s way and it will be a lot of cash, more than enough to take care of him, his children and his children’s children.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, runs down his much too early game by game predictions for the Seattle Seahawks– Could the Hawks get off to a rocky start? The Seahawks are going to start the 2015 season 0-2 and everyone will be freaking out afterward.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, takes a look at just who might wind up returning punts in 2015. The answer to the punt return problem certainly hasn’t come in free agency, at least so far. We also know it won’t be Walters again as he has moved on to Jacksonville.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, takes a look at how proposed NFL rule changes could impact the Seattle Seahawks. Most fans, including Seattle Seahawks fans, are not big on the idea of changing rules. Fans generally see rule changes as a way the league takes something away from the game. I’m afraid this year’s proposals for rule changes are not exceptions.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the deal that brought Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks. Sending Unger to the Saints, however, that is a steep price. Scott realizes Unger has missed multiple games the past couple of seasons, but when he is on the field, the offensive line is a much better unit. Unger’s departure leaves starting vacancies at center, along with left guard since James Carpenter has already been sent away too.
