NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger brings us some disappointing news from Seahawks land. Wide receiver Percy Harvin has announced he is having surgery on his hip and will miss 3-4 months. In the meantime, Sidney Rice, Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Phil Bates, Chris Harper and Stephen Williams will fill in nicely.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Bobby Wagner and how he is definitely not headed down the path for a sophomore slump. Boasting the speed and ferocity needed for a linebacker, the relatively unheralded Wagner will only get better in the coming year, and the Seattle defense will do so with him. Additions along the defensive line (Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett) and his development as a player will be main factors in allowing him to continue to dominate in 2013.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us a piece on the current Seahawks roster and breaks down the wideout position.

Things looked up with Percy Harvin on the roster…
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about what the worst case scenario for the 2013 Seattle Seahawks would be. While there are several things that could derail Seattle’s chance of reaching a Super Bowl, he believes that the greatest threat to the Seahawks would be the loss of Russell Wilson for more than three games, especially towards the end of the season. Chris believes Brady Quinn and Tarvaris Jackson, who are both contending for the backup QB spot, would not be able to produce enough wins for the team.
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 Jonas Hyde talks about the logjam that is the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver position. He points out the company line is the addition of Percy Harvin will create better match ups for Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin, Sidney Rice & Zach Miller, and that the plan is for Tate to get the ball more than he did last season. Buckle your safety belts and put your trays in the upright position, watching 2013 unfold for the Seahawks will be nothing short of exciting.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Jones Hyde weighs in today on the news about GM John Schneider and his contract extension. Jonas goes on to say Pete Carroll will be next to hit a payday. With Carroll’s original 5-year deal running through 2014, it is a given that an extension will be done within the year to keep the tandem together. After the extension is done, the real work will only just be starting. Richard Sherman & Russell Wilson are nice picks by the way.
