NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks big win on the road in Philly– Only two things fans do really tick me off.

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks big game in Philadelphia. Will the Eagle no huddle cause problems? The Seahawks like to rotate their defensive line for different situations, ie run vs. pass. They also change things up in terms of bringing in an extra DB or two in passing situations.

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives you his takeaways for the Seahawks loss to the Chiefs. This kind of let down by the defense against the run really illustrates how badly it hurts them to have both their starting middle linebacker, Bobby Wagner, and their starting defensive tackle, Brandon Mebane, out at the same time. The only good news here is that Wagner should be back soon.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider Brian Scott runs down the Seattle Mariner’s six free agents for 2014. Should they keep them or let them walk? Simply put, Beimel was the best lefty the M’s had in the bullpen in 2014. They’d be crazy to let him walk away without a solid offer.
