Seattle Seahawks @ Carolina PanthersSeattle: The Seahawks come off a tough divisional road loss, and now go back on the road all the way across the country for a morning game against a scrappy Panthers team. This is a team that has defense good enough that the offense only has to score a couple of touchdowns a game in order to win. Unfortunately, scoring two touchdowns in a game has only happened once out of four games, so to say the offense is struggling is an understatement. Chief amongst those struggles is the passing game led by rookie Russell Wilson. Wilson hasn’t thrown for more than 160 yards; part of that has been game plan, but part has been his struggles with connecting down field to his receivers. This makes any part of the Seahawks passing game unstartable, even against a porous defense like the Panthers.What does work for the Seahawks is the ground game led by Marshawn Lynch. With 423 yards, Lynch leads the league in rushing yardage; the most impressive part about...
BEST OF MAXIM
Former Seattle Seahawks great Warren Moon believes that head coach Pete Carroll needs to stop having rookie quarterback Russell Wilson play like a robot to limit turnovers.
“He feels that he can do more and handle more than they’re giving him,” Moon told Doug Farrar of Shutdown Corner.
“You’ve got to remember — Pete’s a defensive coach, and he preaches, ‘Turnovers...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson erased a bad play from his memory and helped direct his team to a victory. It might buy him more time as the starter after recent criticism of the team's stale offense. "I use it as fire," Wilson said after the Seahawks defeated the Carolina Panthers 16-12 Sunday. "I ignore the noise, but at the...
The first quarter of the 2012 season is over, surprised as fans and analysts may be the Arizona Cardinals are holding the top spot in the NFC West. Before the start of season the prevailing opinion was the 49′ers were not only the best team in their division but in the entire NFL. While San Francisco has played well, a loss to the Minnesota Vikings has relegated them to second...

Don’t give up now
The Seattle Seahawks have found themselves embroiled in quarterback controversy since last season ended. With the loss of Charlie Whitehurst and the signing of Matt Flynn, things got really interesting in Seattle.
Then draft day rolled around and the Seahawks grabbed another QB – Russell Wilson from Wisconsin.
So began the 3 headed race that never was to be...

Five things to watch
Before the season started, I would have been more than happy with a 2-2 record. Of course, I would have assumed the Seattle Seahawks beat the Cardinals and the Rams. Instead, Seattle lost those both of those games, but they did defeat the Cowboys and the Packers, at home.
No matter how you slice it, the Seahawks have a record of .500, and last place in the NFC...
I will try to ignore the controversy that took place 2 weeks ago, but I admit it will be hard to avoid. At 2-2 the Seattle Seahawks have been on quite a roller coaster. A big win vs. the Dallas Cowboys showed how strong this team can be at times, while losses against the Cardinals and Rams also frustrated Seahawks fans. When you throw in some luck, and some great defense it has...
According to Dan Arkush of ProFootballWeekly.com, the Seatlte Seahawks are still concerned about the Matt Flynn’s elbow.
One of the reasons it wouldn’t make sense to bench Russell Wilson in favor of Flynn if the Seahawks don’t improve, is that no one knows how his elbow will hold up.
“The thing is, they’re giving Wilson the great majority of reps in practice, because they...
Replacement Refs, QB Controversy, Inconsistencies
In part one of our four part series, NWSB examined the first four games of the Seattle Seahawks‘ 2012 schedule. Fearlessly, I predicted that the Seahawks would find themselves sitting with a record of 3-1 at this point in the season and, needless to say, I was wrong.
It’s been a frustrating campaign so far — to say the least...
Goodbye Super-Cam, Hello Clark Kent.
This season has been quite the roller coaster ride for Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. Over the first four weeks of the season, Newton’s QBR has been 34.5, 88.3, 15.6, and 68.7. With 50 being the average in the QBR rating system, you can see how Cam’s numbers fluctuated week by week.
The Panthers are far from the electrifying offense...
