Ryan was born in Regina Saskatchewan, played at the University of Regina, and got his professional start with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

If the Seattle Seahawks will be successful this season, a huge part of it will come from Marshawn Lynch. Yes, the NFL is a QB driven league. If you have an elite QB you are going to win games. But don’t forget how big the run game still is. The ability to pound the ball through the hole, and steam [...]
Is it confidence if you earn your keep, or ignorance if you brag? If you follow the RealRobreport.com, then you have already heard about Bruce Irvin and his guffaw. About how he saw a Washington number on his caller ID, and he was excited to play for the Redskins. He is still starstruck, and what he really meant was the Seahawks.
“How many sacks you gonna get this year,” Michael...
Can the stops keep coming?
The Seattle Seahawks played very impressively on defense last season.
A great season came with great marks – Seattle finished seventh in total points allowed and ninth in total yards allowed. If the defense can make big plays this upcoming season, they have the ability to carry the 2012 version of our Seahawks into the playoffs.
Incumbent starter Tarvaris Jackson is No. 1 on the Seahawks' depth chart over high-dollar free agent signee Matt Flynn and third-round draft choice Russell Wilson. For now, coach Pete Carroll is standing by what he said in minicamp: Jackson will take snaps with the first unit while Flynn and Wilson prove they're ready to run offense. Carroll said Jackson earned those...

On Tuesday Seahawks first round draft pick Bruce Irvin predicted he will have double digit sacks in 2012. I wonder if he still thinks those sacks will come with the Washington Redskins.
When asked how many sacks he was going to get this year, Irvin responded with a surprisingly confident answer. “I don’t wanna say, I feel like it may jinx it, but its gonna be double digits,”...
Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson may not have been ruled out entirely of the starting position in Seattle.
Within the discussions of Flynn verses Jackson, it seems as though Wilson’s chances have been brushed aside, if not all together passed over. Tony Softli, the former personal evaluator of the Carolina Panther and the St. Louis Rams, says otherwise.
Softli has been stated...

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Matt Church weighs in with a Seahawks post about the five easiest 2012 NFL matchups that await the team this season. The Seahawks match up with the Rams in week four should be an easy win, if the secondary can shut down Sam Bradford that is. Another easy game with division implications is the week twelve match up with the Arizona Cardinals...
The running assumption was that Tarvaris Jackson would be knocked back a slot on the depth chart once Matt Flynn showed up, but not so fast, says Pete Carroll. Plus, Mike Lynn’s multi-million dollar deal lives on, Matt Forte could hold out and Anthony Hargrove was suspended for lying.
Whoooooooops? Slip of the tongue EH Bruce?
Classic moment in the Seattle Seahawks lockerroom this week. Michael Robinson the Seahawks pro bowl full back and his TV website the Real Rob Report found out Bruce Irvin doesn't exactly play for the Seahawks after all, but the REDSKINS?
Whoa Whoa... Cmon Bruce. Say it isn't so.
Robinson asked Irvin how surprised he was to...

Many Seahawks fans are expecting Matt Flynn to be Seattles starting quarterback this coming season, but a decision is still far from being made. Head coach Pete Carroll said at the end of minicamp two weeks ago that there likely wont be a firm decision until after a few preseason games. The competition lives on among Flynn, Tarvaris Jackson and Russell Wilson. And, at least publicly...
