NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, looks at the Week 1 Seahawks’ loss to the Ram– The tackling by the Seahawks defense was suspect at times and solid at others. Even guys like Bobby Wagner and Michael Bennett missed key tackles that led to big gains by the Rams. Missed tackles led to the Rams converting on 3rd and 10+ on several occasions. Those are times you expect the Seahawks D to get off the field and they just didn’t get it done.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the Seahawks big win against the 49ers. The Seahawks won, but penalties persist. I get that the Seahawks play a style of defense that is going to lead to defensive holding calls, illegal contact and defensive pass interference a bit more than other teams. I can live with that. What I have a hard time with is the fact that most of these penalties are not amongst those three varieties.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Hawks game in Carolina. What am I missing here? The Seahawks almost always win games when Lynch gets 25 carries in a game. For a while I thought it was the Harvin factor taking plays away but he’s been gone for two games now. Run the friggin’ ball Bevell!
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens gives us a comprehensive look at the moves made by the Hawks during the 2014 NFL offseason.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down Saturday’s win over the New Orleans Saints. Brett says offensively, Percy Harvin looked good, but hopefully he’s okay after a possible concussion. Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch looked sharp, but the 12th man should chant at more appropriate time.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens will weigh in each week with his blue print for a Seahawks win on Sunday. This week the team has a matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Brett points out even with Russell Okung, Max Unger and Breno Giacomini back on the line this week, again I’m projecting Okung and Giacomini play, it is going to be a tall order for them to stop the Vikings pass rush. Oh and welcome back Percy Harvin.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down yesterday’s Hawks vs. Falcons game. Brett points out Marshawn Lynch was all Beast-mode Sunday running for a punishing 6.0 yards-per-carry for the 3rd time this season. Not bad with an offensive line that is missing 3 starters. (Max Unger, Russell Okung, and Breno Giacomini) Golden Tate’s 106 receiving yards were a single career high.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Seattle’s win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday and gives out his three game balls to the top performer on offense, defense, and special teams. While Russell Wilson was phenomenal through the air, Marshawn Lynch was stellar on the ground and powered the Hawks to victory. Walter Thurmond III stepped in big after Browner left with an injury and Steven “Automatic” Hauschka was…well…automatic.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with his weekly Hawks week that was piece. Tough win eh? Again the Seahawks went to the brink against a far inferior team, only to come away with another W. These close games aren’t as fun as people say they are. Russell Wilson led the charge once again and Marshawn Lynch had a beastly game on the ground. Jermaine Kearse fumbled, but made up for it with a nice TD grab…
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down yesterday’s Buccaneers vs. Hawks game. Brett points out last week he was highly critical of Darrell Bevell only giving Marshawn Lynch the ball 8 times on the ground. This week the Seahawks opened the game by feeding the Beast. Kudos Bevell. Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin were awesome. Golden Tate changed the outcome of the game with that return.
