NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, looks at three NFL free agents the Seahawks might choose to target– With J.R. Sweezy a free agent himself, the Seahawks have an opportunity to improve at the right guard position, a position that has seen its most impressive play the last couple of years being equal to a spaghetti strainer.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, discusses the Seattle Mariners new look at catcher and what the future holds for former starting catcher Mike Zunino– As to what exactly is wrong with Zunino, it’s probably not any one thing. He tends to chase pitches out of the zone. He’s easily fooled with breaking pitches. At times, he looks like he is clearly guessing that a certain pitch in a certain location is coming. Confidence is not something we see oozing from him these days either which leads me to believe he’s beating himself up inside his own mind as much as pitchers are doing to him at the plate.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, discusses the possibilities of a second hold out by Kam Chancellor– I think it’s fair to say that Chancellor’s hold out did damage the Seahawks 2015 season. How much it damaged the Seahawks season is debatable but I think everyone would conclude that on some level, his absence and subsequent return, didn’t do anything good for the team.
NWSB writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, spotlights Jesus Montero’s chances to make the Seattle Mariners 25 man roster this spring– Even with numbers like that at AAA, Dipoto still though it necessary to challenge the young first baseman and brought in Lee to compete with him for the bench/platoon role at first. For Montero, this spring will be the most important ever in his career as a result.
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?
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.
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?
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…
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.
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.
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.
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?
