NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, gives us his three boldest Seattle Mariners predictions for the 2016 season– Now we have Scott Servais and Jerry Dipoto running things along with a host of new players throughout the lineup, rotation and bullpen. Is it reasonable to think the M’s can bounce back this fast with a winning season with so much turnover?

The 2016 Seattle Mariners Bullpen Possibilities

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, previews the 2016 Seattle Mariners Bullpen– Unlike the possibilities for the 2016 Seattle Mariners lineups or the Mariners starting rotation, the M’s bullpen has to be the one area of the team that has the most left to be determined. Many spots in the bullpen are up for grabs and will likely come down to the results during spring training.

Who Is The Next Seattle Seahawks Head Coach?

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, speculates on the future of Pete Carroll in Seattle– What coach, who has been as successful and as revered as Carroll has been, would play out the final year of his contract without an extension being in place before hand if he intended on coaching beyond that final year?

The Seattle Seahawks Free Agent To Do List

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Seahawks free agents and identifies his keepers– Obviously you can’t re-sign all of these guys for $26 million and we know the Seahawks will probably make at least a few cuts to free up more space but allow me to speculate on who I would retain from this list. My re-signees would be…

Seahawks, Panthers Play Just 30 Minutes Each

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, shares his thoughts on the Seahawks playoff defeat against the Panthers– If you were fortunate enough to watch the Seattle Seahawks taking on the Carolina Panthers in the NFC divisional playoff game, you saw one of the most unique football games ever played in the NFL. Never have I seen both teams in a single game play at such a high level in one half and such a low level in the other half.

The Seattle Supersonics Just Moved All Over Again

NWSB Writer, Brian Scott, shares his thoughts and draws comparisons between the Seattle Super Sonics departure from Seattle and the Rams pending departure from St. Louis– When word broke that the Rams were moving back to LA, it’s like all those Sonics emotions rose back to the surface again when I started reading letters and remarks from a remarkably loyal NFL supporters in St. Louis. The parallels in the circumstances of these two teams’ moves is truly remarkable.

Seahawks Look For Redemption Versus Panthers

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks second playoff game and second match up of the 2015/16 season against the Carolina Panthers– Lynch doesn’t quit. That’s the genesis of his nickname Beast Mode. It’s not in his character and seriously doubt it ever will be. Lynch is playing for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday and he’s going to get 100 yards rushing before the day is over.

Fate — It Favors Fools and Football Teams Named Seahawks

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, recaps the Seahawks non-loss over the Vikings in the NFC Wild Card game– The game started for the Minnesota Vikings with an ominous sign. The Vikings team Gjallarhorn shattered in the frigid temperatures right before game time. Could the shattering of a Viking horn be the foreshadow of the shattering of a playoff dream?

The Finale – Seahawks At Cardinals To End 2015/16 Regular Season

NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks final regular season game for the 2015 season against the Arizona Cardinals– Arizona is one of the top two teams in the NFL right now and the Seahawks area beat up with injuries all over the place. Seattle will have to play a nearly perfect game in all three aspects to beat the Cardinals on their field.

The 2016 Seattle Mariners Starting Rotation Possibilities

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, predicts the Seattle Mariners starting five come April– Felix may not have had his best year by his lofty standards in 2015, but he still won 18 games and threw 200+ innings. That’s the eighth consecutive season Hernandez has thrown 200+ innings. He also has had an ERA less than 4.00 in his last nine consecutive seasons. Argument over! Felix throws on opening day.

The Seahawks Are Home For The Rams In Week 16

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks home rematch against the NFC rival St. Louis Rams– The Seahawks defense has had a lot of success against inexperienced QBs the last several weeks. They beat Johnny Manziel, Jimmy Clausen, and Teddy Bridgewater over the past three games. The formula for disrupting the young passers was similar in each of the three games.

Make No Plans For January 10th — The Seahawks Are In The Playoffs

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?
