NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens previews Day 2 of the 2013 NFL Draft. Recapping Day 1, Bivens explains in depth how the team got the better deal by sending away a first round pick to the Minnesota Vikings for Percy Harvin. On Day 2, the team could target someline like Khaseem Greene, or even Arthur Brown if he’s still available.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with the top needs, in his opinion, that the Seahawks need to address in the upcoming NFL Draft. The top needs, says Clinton, are TE, OT, OG, and OLB. He gives us two selections per each position, and where he thinks the Seahawks will select them in the draft. Also, he has a wishful thinking selection, but it is highly unlikely that this player will drop far enough in the draft for the Hawks to actually select him.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on contract details of the Percy Harvin trade and signing this week. The Seahawks still have about $14.6 million left in cap room after releasing Leon Washington. More then enough to add some more cogs says Brett. The obvious point is this. Harvin’s new six year $67 million contract gives him the extra money in the bank for a nice NEW ride.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with the five players who he thinks need to improve the most in 2013 if the Seahawks are going to make a serious push for the Super Bowl. The biggest name that comes to mind for Clinton is Seahawks rookie DT Bruce Irvin. He showed signs of both brilliance, and need of improvement in his rookie season. He ended up with 8 sacks on the year, but his play on first and second down, when called upon, is where the most work is needed. The WR corps of Sidney Rice and Golden Tate needs to improve too, with one of them finally coming out as the top WR threat for Russell Wilson.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens analyzes the five reasons he thinks the Seahawks got bounced early from the playoffs. Pete had some questionable calls during the game, but the biggest offender was not kicking the field goal on 4th and 1 at the 11. That would have at least put the Hawks on the board before halftime. Another one was Marshawn Lynch fumbling the ball. Nothing kills momentum more than a fumble. And that was Lynch’s second in two weeks.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens gives us his reaction to the Hawks’ season coming to an end. He discusses what went wrong and what went right, and he compares Russell Wilson to Hall-of-Fame QB Sammy Baugh. He also gives a special shout-out to some of the best fans in the NFL, the 12th Man.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Phil Slater weighs in today with another post on the strategy and tactics that could help the Hawks take down the Atlanta Falcons in their NFC playoff matchup. Phil says for a Seattle victory, look for Coach Carroll to get the ball to Marshawn Lynch 25 times, let Russell Wilson run the play action and take advantage in the special teams.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Jordin Ereth brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching for Sunday when the Hawks play the Atlanta Falcons on Divisional playoffs Weekend. Jordin says the most intriguing match up is the combination of Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner against Roddy White and Julio Jones. Kam Chancellor has his work cut out for him guarding the Falcons’ Hall of Fame tight end – Tony Gonzalez.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell after each week of the regular season and possibly during an NFL playoff game or the Super Bowl will bring you his Seahawks game balls. Balls are awarded to the Hawks offensive MVP. This weeks game ball goes to the record setting performer Russell Wilson. 3 rushing TD’s, and a passing TD all within the first 30 minutes of game play! Plus, he led the Seahawks to their 2nd straight road win.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell after each week of the regular season and possibly during an NFL playoff game or the Super Bowl will bring you his Seahawks game balls. Balls are awarded to the Hawks offensive MVP. This week’s Offensive Game Ball goes to a guy who was hands down the best back on the field. Marshawn Lynch had 11 caries for 128 yards and 3 TD’s on the day. Not too shabby eh?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell tells us about the thirteenth game of the season for the Seahawks, a Sunday afternoon matchup at home with the Arizona Cardinals. Cockiness is no joke, but I think this one is already in the bag. The Seahawks are on their way up in the NFC West, while the Cardinals have lost a pitiful 8 in a row. Plus with the 12th man on our side, this game should be easy. But, I have been wrong before.
