In the second game of the preseason, the Seahawks pick up their first loss against the Vikings, 25-19. Matty Brown joins Brandan to recap the loss and talk about the biggest takeaways as Seahawks fans had the opportunity to see Russell Wilson on the field against an opposing team for the first time since his record contract. While his time on the field only resulted in a field goal in his two drives, the offense moved the ball well and the game helped to answer a few questions we had going into the preseason.  On offense, Lockett stands out as the top receiver and Jaron Brown looks locked into the next spot. David Moore and D.K. Metcalf likely fill out the top four spots. Brandan and Matty talk about why Jazz Furguson isn't likely to get one of those spots, particularly after his performance against the Vikings. Ugo Amadi provided us with one of the biggest highlights from the game on special teams and Poona Ford stood out on defense against the Vikings starting offensive line. Matty talks about his latest article breaking down the play that led to an interception by DeShawn Shead, who provided the only Seahawks touchdown of the game. He also discusses an upcoming article that will focus on what we can expect from opposing offenses in how they'll attack a defense that no longer has Earl Thomas. With Tedric Thompson the presumed Week 1 starter, can he show some of the ball hawking abilities he showed in college?Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Each week I have a chance to go on a local radio show in Montana called the Nach on Sports. This week, Anthony and I talk about Paxton Lynch's performance against the Broncos and why we still need to see another strong performance before we want to think of him as a potential backup for Russell Wilson. We talk about the running back depth being a disappointment against the Broncos and whether the pass rush or secondary is more of a concern as the Seahawks  continue through the preseason and into the regular season.Learn more about your ad choices.

Rob Staton joins Brandan to talk about the game, what stood out, and what we're looking forward to seeing in the next game against the Vikings.With the Seahawks getting their first win of the preseason out of the way in Week 1 against the Broncos, we don't have to worry about another 0-4 start before the regular season this year. Sure we all know that doesn't matter, just as penalties and replay reviews in the preseason penalties don't matter, but we all manage to get worked up -- because football is BACK!One of the reasons why the Seahawks were able to get the 22-14 win was because of their depth this year. When we watched the team in 2018, they struggled to hold teams and put points up on the board late in games. That wasn't the case against the Broncos as Paxton Lynch had a solid game against his former team, even bowling over third stringers to get into the end zone for a touchdown. Let's see how he does against the Vikings second string defense before we start to get excited about his potential as a backup for Russell Wilson.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

The green team (the backups) beat the blue team (the starters) 23-20 during the mock game in Bothel, Wash. Although, it sounds like it took from Pete Carroll late in the practice to make it interesting considering the starters were up 20-3 before the green team mounted their comeback effort. Coach Carroll addressed some of the things they worked through as part of their 8th day of open training camp as well as his reaction to some of the biggest moments. Russell Wilson took to the podium to talk about his trip to his grandfather's funeral and to say what he liked from two of his top targets on the day: Jacob Hollister and Keenan Reynolds.Learn more about your ad choices.
