Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll both had some newsworthy quotes coming out of the week of minicamp, but it was a quote from Tyler Lockett that should have Seahawks fans excited around the potential of the new offense in 2021. Lockett spoke directly to issues the team had throughout the final weeks of last season and the importance of addressing those issues this year. Russell Wilson also talked about the new offense, but the majority of questions for him surrounded the offseason drama. At least he had the opportunity to give us the "real reality" of how he saw things. Jamal Adams is due for a new contract and was excused from minicamp. Does Jamal deserve to be paid as the highest safety or at a contract similar to some of the best outside linebackers? Duane Brown has also expressed the desire for a new contract and we discuss why that could be really good news for Wilson and the Seahawks. One player not looking for a new contract is punter Michael Dickson who is locked up for the next five years with the team and his now paid among the top punters in the NFL. In the second half of the show we talk about the Seahawks defense and which issues are critical to the team's success beyond this year. Russ mentioned how odd it was to see Carlos Dunlap wearing number 8. Does it create a similar clash that has been an issue in the past with wide receivers who pick numbers in the teens? Generation Z and media outlets who use the phrase "is getting criticism on Twitter" need to Do Better. Better at Life honors go to a member of the media who called out bad questions at press conferences and to Ryan Fitzpatrick for the way he showed up to his first day of work.

Last week the word on the street was the Atlanta Falcons wanted a first round pick to trade future Hall of Fame wide receiver Julio Jones. Now, after an appearance on Undisputed, it seems much more likely that a trade will happen. We take a listen to the phone call that definitely wasn't an impromptu tv moment and talk about the Seahawks as an odds on favorite to trade for Jones. Considering what Julio said during the call, Seattle does make some sense in terms of his landing spot. While Julio would offer the potential to impact the offense, there is a bigger area of need and a player who may be available to fill that need. Ahkello Witherspoon is a name of a player currently on the team who could fill a critical need, but does his latest press conference inspire confidence that he could be that guy? If you look at the latest NFL.com starting roster projection for Seattle, Witherspoon seems to be a favorite to be a starter. But will it last? In the second half of the show we discuss Russell Wilson's support for Naomi Osaka skipping out on a post match press conference. Maybe Osaka should take a page from the playbook of a former Seahawks player or maybe we could just be okay with allowing athletes to decide if they want to speak to the media or not after an event. Closing the show we talk about a 'conspiracy theory' involving Tim Tebow as well as a spooky event involving one of Adam's neighbors.  Better at life honors go to Seahawks reporter Michael-Shaun Dugar for his nomination for a prominent award in sports media and to a nuc of bees that has a new home.

Earlier this month, DK Metcalf showed up on the track to attempt to qualify for the Olympics. It may not have gone as he hoped, but we take a look at the event as well as Pete Carroll's reaction to it during his latest appearance on the Rich Eisen show. Coach Carroll said there are bigger things to come for DK beyond the football field, but didn't give any further details. Pete did offer some thoughts on the Russell Wilson offseason situation and what to expect (kind of) from their new offense with Shane Waldron as the coordinator. Most importantly, we got key details on Pete's gum chewing gameday regimen. Dave Bloomquist, a.k.a. Hong Kong Hawk, joins the show to break down the schedule as he does every year. In terms of rest days for opponents, the middle stretch of the season could be the most difficult. But it's offset with seemingly weaker opponents and a bye week before one of the toughest games on the schedule. Plus, the Rams may have received the tougher draw in terms of schedule this year despite their second place finish. The Seahawks held rookie minicamp and we offer our quick takeaways to what we heard about the draft picks and undrafted rookie free agents. Julio Jones is on the trade block and there's a veteran right tackle who has a possible link to Seattle. Pete Prisco also offered up his draft grade for Seattle, so we have to take a trip to Prisco's World to check in on that. Do better call outs go to Adam's new satellite radio for their two weeks of recommendations and Brandan has an ultimatum for Nesquik after their new ad campaign is a terrible look for DK Metcalf. Better at life honors go to a fashion fascist and to a Cardinals beat writer.  Post 'Go Hawks' in the comments for the latest Tiny Pieces of Seahawks Stuff (TPoSS) Giveaway Support the show Get in the Flock!

Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog returns to the show to take a look back on the Seahawks draft process as well as their selections. Each of the picks addressed team needs we focused on heading into the draft, but what does it say about their process overall? Rob talks about a recent interview that he did that revealed to him why the Seahawks preferred a wide receiver over getting one of the top centers on the board. We discuss a couple undrafted players who were expected to be taken in the draft and their likelihood of making the 53-man roster for the upcoming season. Closing the show, Rob has some strong opinions on the 49ers selection of Trey Lance and their decision to give up multiple future first-round picks for the opportunity.

John Schneider and Pete Carroll went into this year's 2021 NFL Draft with only three draft picks after using their other picks to acquire known talent. Jamal Adams and Carlos Dunlap were acquired in 2020 and are both under contract to remain with the team through 2021. Gabe Jackson was picked up in a trade this offseason with the Las Vegas Raiders to add to the offensive line after the departure of Mike Iupati. However, the Seahawks have never picked fewer than five players in a draft in the entire history of the franchise. But the Seahawks GM only made two trades on draft day and still finished with only three picks. First off the board for Seattle was WR D'Wayne Eskridge of Western Michigan. The guys talk about the thought process that may have gone into taking a skill player here rather than improving the offensive line, particularly with some of the top centers still on the board. Outside cornerback depth was a concern coming into this last week, and it's well known the type of corner Seattle likes to draft, so why did the Seahawks take Oklahoma cornerback Tre Brown? Pete Carroll may be adapting to what we're seeing in the NFC West and in the NFL. In the sixth round, the Seahawks traded up for offensive tackle Stone Forsythe. Despite some of his perceived weaknesses, taking him that late in the draft was a "no-brainer," but it also highlighted an area where Seattle tended not to budge on what they looked for in the past. Plus, we look at some of the top undrafted free agents. In the second half of the show, we talk about the 49ers selection of Tre Lance with the third overall pick and the decision to trade two future first round picks to make that deal (when maybe they didn't need to). Aaron Rodgers managed to steal the spotlight ahead of the first round, which was almost certainly 100% intentional after what the Packers did to him last year. Do Better call outs go anyone who dragged Russ into the new Rodgers story and to our buddy Gerrad. DK Metcalf gets Better at Life honors along with Dan Hanzus of Around the NFL.

Back with part two of our discussion as Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog previews some of the defensive players who could be on Seattle's radar. This show kicks off with a look at what might be the team's biggest need overall. If the Seahawks can add a cornerback who matches the caliber or improves upon Shaquill Griffin's rookie season, that would help fans feel a lot better about the defense going into 2021. If John Schneider and Pete Carroll break form and address cornerback in the second round, something they've never done, then Rob likes Benjamin St-Juste of Minnesota. He also likes Ambry Thomas out of Michigan. Ifeatu Melifonwu, however, is someone who has been routinely projected to Seattle, but the disappointment of his brother's career has rubbed off negatively when it comes to the Syracuse prospect. Considering that there are always special teams needs to fill, safety and linebacker are two areas that shouldn't be completely overlooked. Defensive tackle may not be a need for Seattle with the Al Woods signing, but if teams are overlooking Texas A&M DT Bobby Brown then Rob would be happy to see him land with the Seahawks. We also discuss how defensive end shouldn't be overlooked. Sure they have depth, but if they have someone who can make an impact, they should take a chance even with a limited number of picks.

We're closing in on the 2021 NFL Draft, coming up April 29th, and barring any major moves between now and then the Seahawks won't be making their first draft pick until the 30th. Joining the show this week to preview where the Seahawks could go on offense in the draft is Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog. The episode kicks off with a look back at how the Seahawks ended up with only three picks ahead of the draft and the circumstances surrounding the decision to make a big trade for Jamal Adams ahead of the season. That was a move that they wanted to help make an immediate impact on defense, but what is the most immediate need now on offense? Rob makes the case for why the biggest need may not be a player who starts on offense in 2021, but considering the depth at tackle it may be the best time to address a replacement for Brandon Shell for Duane Brown next season. There's two areas of the draft that don’t provide much strength and that is at running back and tight end. However, we take a look at some of the players who fit in terms of Seahawks measurements, because they'll be guys who are likely on the team's radar. Closing out the show, we look at a relatively deep receiver class. The problem is there isn't a player who Rob thinks is a clear and obvious fit for what they've liked historically. Maybe Shane Waldron will have some thoughts on a guy he feels could be unlocked in the offense he's bringing to the team this year. Support the show Get in the Flock!

It only took about 10 weeks for the discussion about the Seahawks potentially moving on from Russell Wilson to go full circle. It started with Brandon Marshall in late January saying that Wilson was "beyond frustrated" with Pete Carroll. This week he has reported that the relationship between the two have never been better! Marshall said it came down to a meeting between the two that turned everything around. Tyler Lockett is set to be with the Seahawks for a lot time, signing a 4-year contract extension through 2025. If he plays out his contract in Seattle, which is another team-friendly deal, we talk about where he'll end up on the list of all-time wide receivers in franchise history. On the defensive side of the ball, Quinton Dunbar won't be returning, but that leaves the door open for a former Seahawks cornerback to make a triumphant return. We take a look around the NFC West in the second half of the show as Adam is not buying the hype surrounding Mac Jones going to the 49ers with the third overall pick. The flock comes in with some optimism surrounding the NFL draft despite the Seahawks having only three picks and some reasoning behind the four teams that were listed as possible trade destinations for Wilson. A former landlord and Michael Strahan both earn Do Better callouts this week and Better at Life honors go to the makers of the latest off-road vehicle and to the Seahawks salary cap wizards.

After two weeks of free agency, the plan for the Seahawks offseason is becoming clear. The large contract they traded for on the offensive line by acquiring Gabe Jackson is essentially swapped out with the departure of Jarran Reed and his contract on the defensive line. The return of Carlos Dunlap may be the most important move and the reduction in his salary allows for the addition of defensive end Kerry Hyder and the return of Al Woods to the interior. It's also appears they are sacrificing their full participation in the draft and instead trading for proven veteran talent. The San Francisco 49ers made a huge move this past week by trading two future first round picks to move up to the third pick overall. We get into the history of NFL trades into the top three picks to show there is risk involved. However, for a team that has seen success with an average quarterback, the potential reward is easily worth the risk in their case. We discuss the move in context with the other NFC West teams who have been working to upgrade their rosters this offseason. The fact that the 49ers are giving up the 12th overall pick and two more first round picks just to move up nine spots in the draft demonstrates how ridiculous the Chicago Bears reported trade package for Russell Wilson was. But it hasn't stopped people like former general manager Mike Tannenbaum from suggesting that the Seahawks could still move on from Wilson for (once again) Sam Darnold. In the second half of the show, one of our members of the Flock is considering adjusting his relationship status if it can somehow help the Seahawks get back to championship form.  Adam goes after the owners for nearing completion for their push to a 17-game schedule and Brandan goes after Mike Florio for his rooting interest surrounding the Seahawks quarterback. Better at Life honors go to a new season and to the Miami Dolphins for giving Adam the perfect football gift. Support the show Get in the Flock!

It's once again that time of year where we hope that the Seahawks will go after some big name targets and free agency and come away somewhat disappointed. Coming into Wednesday, Seattle had signed another cornerback castoff from the San Francisco 49ers and signed Poona Ford to stay in Seattle for two more years. Neither the offensive line and defensive line were addressed. Not until the second half of the recording of this latest show. After talking about missed opportunities in free agency, we look back on some of the worst takes regarding the drama surrounding Russell Wilson. We have multiple theories to choose from on why Russ was not named in the letter to season ticket holders and Adam likely nails the easiest explanation. We also diagnose how Sam Darnold entered the quarterback conversation this past week after Pete Carroll's quotes from December were used to support two different trade proposals. In the second half of the show, we get news that the Seahawks have acquired an offensive lineman from the Las Vegas Raiders. He wasn't the one discussed in the first half, but we take a look at some of the highlights of the move and talk about what it could mean for Damien Lewis. The Seahawks are also signing a veteran tight end, but it highlights a key area the Seahawks aren't taking advantage of when it comes to contracts to try and squeeze multiple moves into this offseason. Mike Silver lands in the Do Better segment for what was probably the worst take about the Russell Wilson situation, and Adam takes issue with characterizing Deshaun Watson's issues with the Houston franchise as anything remotely similar to Russ in Seattle. Better at life honors go to the 1984 Seahawks defense for some overdue recognition and to the "Acid Queen" as Adam rebounds from last week's call out to do better. Support the show Get in the Flock!

This week show begins with a two-minute rundown of all the biggest stories that Adam has taken note of from the past week. Notably, Justin Britt signing with the Texans. Then we get into the clip behind one of the biggest stories of the week that was reported incorrectly . . . that the Seahawks are "shopping" Russell Wilson. When, after clarification, they were actually returning phone calls. Dan Patrick, the host behind the interview that kicked off the offseason of drama, joined 950 KJR in Seattle and had a couple of statements that offer a national perspective of the situation with the Seahawks. If people in the national sports media have the idea that Pete Carroll isn't "all in" on Russell Wilson, then maybe the Seahawks coach has a problem when it comes to public messaging about his quarterback. In news that came after recording the show, Carlos Dunlap was released by the Seahawks on Monday, but our discussion about relating his contract to J.J. Watt may actually provide some context to his departure. If Dunlap wasn't willing to restructure to a deal similar to Watt, Seattle may see that as the ceiling for the market for finding a free agents at that spot or if Dunlap were to return after testing the market. In the second half of the episode, we respond to some comments from the Flock that came in regarding the current situation in Seattle. As people organize into Team Russ vs Team Pete, is it time to give up on the idea of being Team Work This Catfish Out and team up? Find out why Britni is no longer allowed near acid and why Michael Pittman may not catch many passes from Carson Wentz this year. We close out the show with some advice from OJ Simpson and award Better at Life honors to Aaron Levine for his recent coverage of Russell Wilson.

It's a single-topic show for this episode of the podcast. Because, on Thursday morning, Michael-Shawn Dugar released an article on The Athletic that detailed the timeline from this year and some of the details from previous years that provide additional context to some of Russell Wilson's recent comments. The point of the article is that, from Wilson's perspective, it's more than just getting offensive linemen - it's about winning a certain way. We hit on some of the main points from the story and, while it still seems incredibly unlikely a trade would happen, the more important thing is that Pete Carroll and Russ have to communicate more clearly with each other, rather than doing it through the media.

As it turns out there's a bit more discussion we can have on Russell Wilson without it being a repeat of last week. We talk about the Josina Anderson tweet updating us all that Russell Wilson isn't getting traded and agree with Joe Fann's assessment that what it really means is that all is perfect in Seattle. Russell Wilson hit 3 on the scale of unhappy offseason Russ last year when he said he wanted stars, and this year he's turned it up to 4. Still a long way to go before we're in Deshaun Watson territory. Nick Wright of FS1 came up with the "perfect fake trade" that would send Seattle to the bottom of the NFC West and cost Pete Carroll and John Schneider their jobs. Seahawks fans aren't going to be happy with Nick Bosa on their team with Watson leading the 49ers to division titles. At least Mike Florio came up with some trade ideas that at least get Seattle a pick of the top two quarterbacks from the 2021 draft. If management were to accept either of those, they'd have to be certain we'd be watching Seattle compete for a title in the next three years. Free agency is around the corner, and Zach Ertz's name is coming up in possible trade talks. Carlos Dunlap is on the mind of some Seahawks fans to make cap space, but some are willing to suggest that money could be better used to bring another Bengals player to Seattle to be the third option at wide receiver. We announce the top 10 teams from the pick'em league this year. If you participated and want to be in the running for the 2020 James Harrison Award, you can go to http://tinypiecesofseahawksstuff.com and comment with your team name or comment in the post from the Ring of Honor group on Facebook. Our thoughts go out to those in Texas who are recovering following the massive power outages in Texas. Adam's passion about his problems with the power grid electrify a segment of 'Do Better' and Brandan goes after the NCAA. Better at life honors go to NASA and a plea for them to create an amazing fund raising idea, as well as the current and former Seahawks who are helping feed families in Texas who were impacted by the recent disaster.  Support the show Get in the Flock!

Wasting no time with offseason drama from the Seahawks this offseason, news came out on the day of the Super Bowl that teams were making calls to Seattle about their interest in Russell Wilson. Though the news expressly came along with the disclaimer that the Seahawks, of course, weren't interested. Yet, by Wednesday, there were sports betting sites laying odds as to which team Wilson would be going to next. So where did this come from? We pull the quotes from former Seahawks receiver Brandon Marshall and Russell Wilson's quotes from the Dan Patrick Show that seemed to generate most of this discussion. Interestingly enough, nowhere in those discussions were any kind of hints that Wilson is demanding to be traded or suggesting that he's unhappy with the team. Instead, he's clearly focused on what Seattle needs to do this offseason to improve - acquiring talent to put together an offensive line that can protect their star quarterback. Considering what we all witnessed in Super Bowl 55, that should be the goal for every team in the NFL. Because we saw the league MVP from 2018 and the league MVP from 2020 both struggle against the Tampa Bay Bucs defensive front. Russell Wilson is focused on the right priority and the Seahawks front office should have that same focus as well! We also discuss the Matt Stafford trade to the Los Angeles Rams and what it means for the division. Adam brings a historical perspective at quality quarterbacks who have made mid- or late-career moves. Plus, we take another shot at nicknaming the new offensive coordinator and the results from an in-depth data analysis on some important career tendencies.

The Seattle Seahawks have announced their new offensive coordinator and Shane Waldron will come up from Los Angeles to join the Seattle Seahawks. The worst part about this move is that it forces us to say some things that sound like there are some positive components of the Rams offense. But the best part about is may be that it may signal a compliment to Russell Wilson's game that could help the team improve. However, it does come with some risk. Ahead of this episode, we reached out to our members of the Flock and the Ring of Honor group of Facebook to get some questions from the group on the things that you want to talk about. Before we get there, we talk a bit about the NFC Championship game and the call by the refs and the fourth down decision and how those moments impacted the game. In our mailbag segment, we talk about the Seahawks free agents the team could be most likely to keep some players we'd be okay with moving on from, and where the cap money should be focused on in the offseason when it comes to free agency. With NFC West rivals looking to upgrade at quarterback, we talk about the worst possible outcome in the division this offseason. Plus, we rank some of the sexiest deep balls of Russell Wilson's career. One email even inspires our new slogan we'd like to see pitched to the Seahawks new offensive coordinator. In our Do Better segment, Falcons new head coach Arthur Smith is recognized for dropping the most cliches ever in an introductory "hype" video. Aaron Rodgers gets called out for passing on accountability following the game against Tampa Bay. Better at life honor go to Marshawn Lynch and to the Lions new head coach who, by the most recent press conference, appears to be the anti-Arthur Smith.

As the 2020 season closes out for the Seahawks, we recap the news from this past week. The biggest news is that the Seahawks are moving on from Brian Schottenheimer as the team's offensive coordinator. John Schneider apparently isn't going to the Detroit Lions after all. Instead, he signs with the Seahawks through 2027. However, Seattle did lose one name from their front office to the Carolina Panthers. Were there any clues from Pete Carroll's press conference to close out the season that suggests that Schottenheimer was on the way out? There were certainly clues about the direction the Seahawks coach wants to head in. As much as there are concerns about it shifting too heavily toward the run, Pete was very clear about it not being a monumental shift. He wants to run teams out of playing two-deep safeties, he wants to improve on third down conversions, and he wants to continue to be explosive in the passing game. Russell Wilson also gave his final press conference while vacationing from Mexico. It was a different tone from the Seahawks quarterback than we've heard in previous seasons, and he wanted to make sure we all know how critical it is that he's a part of the process with hiring the new offensive coordinator and being "on the same page." But who should the new offensive coordinator be? We work through all the names that have been projected and ultimately settle on one name we haven't heard many Seahawks fans talking about. Adam has some thoughts on Seahawks players who were talking about how difficult one particular aspect of the season was to overcome. Brandan goes after Texans fans for coming up with a terrible idea for a cause they chose to march about near the stadium in Houston. Better at life honors go to a man for peacefully residing in an airport for months and to a couple of teams for making the choice to hire defensive coordinators for their head coaching vacancies.

321: CATFISH the Rams!

321: CATFISH the Rams!

2021-01-1201:43:40

Was this week's loss to the Rams in the playoffs the most disappointing and frustrating performance of the Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson era, or was it the most predictable? Either way it was the first home loss in the playoffs since the 2004 playoffs, which coincidentally was also against the Rams franchise. Russell Wilson, with two healthy thumbs, was outplayed by a quarterback who looked like he could feel his heartbeat in his throwing thumb. Pete Carroll passed over opportunities to go for it on fourth down early in the game, but then when his hand was forced the offense narrowly missed a delay of game only to get a false start. Penalties cost the Seahawks the game, turnovers cost the team the game, and Wilson unable to respond from questions about his play from the previous eight weeks cost the Seahawks the game. Despite the Rams defense playing extremely well, we discuss a variety of ways the offense could have attacked their rival and either stayed true to the slogan or by making other adjustments. We'll look at Pete Carroll's post-game comments in the next episode, but this week we discuss how Carroll's philosophy may be worth questioning after multiple seasons of early playoff exits. Could the offensive coordinator be on the hot seat? We talk about possible coaching moves as well as how we'll likely see more questions this offseason surrounding Wilson than any other season.  Those questions are already beginning to be thrown out there on Twitter as highlighted in Do Better and there are deeper questions about whether humans are alone in the universe that we may hear more about this summer. Better at Life honors go to Tony Romo for offering some comedic relief following the Seahawks playoff game and to the Seahawks Swab Team getting recognition for their efforts this season.

The regular season has come to a close for the Seahawks following a 26-23 win over the San Francisco 49ers down in Glendale, Arizona. At the midpoint of the season, we were extremely concerned about a Seattle defense that was giving up passing yards at an historic rate. Not only were they worst in the NFL in 2020, they were on pace to be the worst in NFL history. If not for the 3-yard touchdown pass by the 49ers in garbage time, the Seahawks would have finished ahead of the Detroit Lions for the 30th spot. However, there has also been another turnaround. The offense went from scoring 30+ points a game through the first eight games to only having one game above 30 in the second half. But improving the defense through the acquisition of Carlos Dunlap and the 2nd play of Jamal Adams and D.J. Reed offering a big improvement over the first half of the season. It's possible to play both good defense and score 30 points or more. So what's going on? We discuss what changed from the first half to the second half and talk about which quarterback we'll see the Rams play on Saturday. In the second half of the show, we talk about the preferred route through the playoffs. We discuss the news of John Schneider getting interest from the Detroit Lions to become their general manager. Our 'Do Better' segment features talk around the Philadelphia Eagles and the reaction to their performance in the final game of the NFL season. Better at life honors go to a legend of sports radio and to a New York Giants draft pick that had been holding onto an old tweet from Skip Bayless.

The Seattle Seahawks finally had a convincing victory over a Sean McVay coached Los Angeles Rams team. Not only that, but they did it on the back of a defensive unit that had questions surrounding it early this season. Is it time to give Ken Norton some credit for the turnaround? The 20-9 win over the Rams earned Seattle their first NFC West title since 2016, but was it done in a way to improve Adam's mood from the previous week? After all, the structure of the game wasn't much different. We look at some of the third downs throughout the game and it was one area where Russell Wilson struggled early on in the game. Next up is a San Francisco 49ers franchise that Seattle has dominated throughout the Russell Wilson era. Kyle Shannahan has managed two wins against this Seahawks team (the same number that Jim Harbaugh had). Injuries continue to plague the 49ers, but George Kittle will be in the game and C.J. Beathard has done well to avoid throwing any interceptions. But Kittle will be his only big name target with both Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk out for this Sunday's game. Even with injuries, Seattle should expect a physical game, particularly from the 49ers defense. In the second half of the show, we talk about the departure of Damon 'Snacks' Harrison and the return of Luke Willson. We also discuss a number of playoff scenarios for Seattle and why there is the potential for a big difference between having the 2nd and 3rd seed in the playoffs.  D.K.O. earned the top spot in the pick'em league this week, and Jeremy comes in with the answer regarding career rushing leaders for the Seahawks. Adam calls out an anonymous Fansided article for daring to consider life for the Seahawks without Russell Wilson as Brandan brings evidence as to why Bobby Wagner should have earned a fumble recovery at the end of the Rams game. Better at life honors go to the Tennessee Titans social media team for their injury designation of one of their players and to the Seahawks franchise for earning an NFC West title in the face of different areas of adversity.

The Seattle Seahawks earned a playoff spot and the Rams were beaten by a previously winless team on the same weekend. Was a 20-15 victory to lock a playoff berth a better feeling than seeing a rival lose in that way? Up 20-3 against the Football Team, it looked like there was potential for a second straight dominant win. Instead, it came down to a final drive by Washington that could have given them a late lead over Seattle. Where did things start to turn? We take a look at the four offensive drives and the way the team played defensively in the fourth quarter. This Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams looks different than the matchup earlier in the season. Shaquille Griffin has returned from injury, the pass rush has shown consistency since the previous matchup, and Alex Collins won't be finishing the game as the leading rusher. But the main thing we want to see is a revenge game from DK Metcalf. A response from him would prove that the previous game against the Rams defense was a fluke, and would help to put him ahead of Steve Largent in the record books. We also discuss the thing the Jets did successfully against the Rams defense and how it's a strategy Russell Wilson can't be expected to take advantage of. In the second half of the show we talk about some of the latest Seahawks transactions. Tight end Greg Olsen could return from injury this week. Despite Adam's earlier frustrations with the team, he struggles to place other teams ahead of Seattle in the power rankings. Do Better call outs go to the NFL for continuing to throw road blocks at Josh Gordon's return to the NFL as well as the Pro Bowl selection committee for a pair of Seahawks snubs. Better at Life honors go to SETI for a monumental discovery and to the seven Seahawks selected to the Pro Bowl.
