212: At Seahawks Training Camp, Thoughts from Game 1 of the Preseason
The Seahawks fall to the Colts 19-17 in the first game of the preseason, but there were some positive takeaways. Adam and Brandan offer their thoughts on the game while at Seahawks Training Camp in Renton. They primarily focus on some of the rookie performances, because that seemed to be the highlight with so many members of the latest draft class contributing in the game. The guys also discuss the performances by the quarterbacks and running backs. Monday was Military Appreciation Day at the VMAC, so Brandan gets some thoughts from some of the military members in attendance. Armando Mejia, community engagement assistant director, joins the show for a few minutes to talk about some of the efforts by the team supporting military members and former Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds, now a wide receiver for the Seahawks, stops by to answer a few questions. Recording the second half of the show back in Montana the following day, we thank some new members of the flock and have a couple announcements to make for how we're going to approach the upcoming season. Do better calls go to anyone who has shifted from taking information via the phone to only taking information online and to the Cardinals General Manager for his offseason behavior. In our better at life segment, Adam continues his streak of RV campgrounds that he's liked and Ciara has Russell Wilson's back after a rapper suggested that her husband wasn't very cool.

211: 2018 Season Expectations and Ben Malcolmson, special assistant to Pete Carroll, joins the show
It's time for our annual season expectations show and we kick things off with some of the latest news, including a contract extension for Duane Brown. A former Super Bowl 48 Champion is coming back to the team as the Seahawks look to the right side of the offensive line that seems to have a lot of question marks around it. The Seahawks had their first scrimmage of preseason and the guys talk about some of the players who stood out. Leading up to the first preseason game against the Colts, Brandan and Adam share their thoughts on what groups they'll be watching throughout the game. Adam is more interested on offense with the group of running backs and narrowing down some of the battles for the final wide receiver spots as well as rookie tight end Will Dissly. On the defensive side of the ball, Shaquem Griffin and Tedrick Thompson should get some extended playing time and while Seahawks fans haven't seen much from Thompson, K.J. Wright (who thinks he'd make a good future GM) says T2 is going to be really good. The guys also discuss who they see as a breakout star, comeback player, rising star, a player not to forget about, a guy who needs to rebound, and their darkhorse MVP candidates. There's also a disagreement over which player gets the coveted title as the best looking player. Ben Malcolmson, special assistant to Pete Carroll, joins the show this week to talk about his experiences with the team and the leadership he saw from Coach Carroll following the Super Bowl loss. He has a new book out titled, "Walk On: From Pee Wee Dropout to the NFL Sidelines--My Unlikely Story of Football, Purpose, and Following an Amazing God." Ben talks about what it's like for an average guy to make it on a top college football team in the country and how he ultimately made it on the field for one play at the end of the season. He also talks about some players on the Seahawks who also have underdog stories. In the final segment of the show, Max sends in a note via YouTube asking a few questions about the upcoming season. Which Seahawks running back will ultimately have the most yards this season? And which player from another team would Adam and Brandan rather have in Seattle? An ESPN writer and Apple engineers need to do better this week and a campground and a podcast listener share this week's Better At Life honors.

210: Arizona Cardinals - Know Your Rival, with Drew Butler of the Punt and Pass Podcast
Training camp opened for the Seahawks this week, which has Adam and Brandan fired up for the 2018 season. One thing is apparent is that there's a lot of young talent on the team that we haven't been talking about with the departure of so many former star players. There are a few down notes with Coach Carroll announcing some injuries to start of the season, but the important thing for most of them is that they're ready for Week 1. Closing out the Know Your Rival series for the offseason is a look at the Arizona Cardinals. Former Cardinals punter Drew Butler, now of the Punt and Pass Podcast, joins the show to talk about changes to the coaching staff and at quarterback. How the Cardinals respond to a new system on offense is a big question leading into the season. Drew talks about where he was when the Seahawks and Cardinals faced off for the 6-6 tie on Sunday Night Football and he offers his thoughts on the Seahawks new punter Michael Dickson. In the second half of the show, the guys take a trip to Prisco's World and Pete's prediction that Seattle will go 5-11 this year. The prediction record appears to a be a subconscious nod toward his thoughts on the Seahawks quarterback situation. We have a lot of listener emails this week and discuss everything from why Russell continues to have his detractors to an imagined origin story for how the Sea Hawkers Podcast came to be. Do better call outs go to the writers and media members who are doing nothing but complaining about the Terrell Owens situation and a sports writer for taking an odd angle on the Malik McDowell story. Better at life honors go to the astronomers who discovered Jupiter has 10 more moons and to the Jets for saying all the right things about their backup quarterback recovering from a devastating injury.  Thanks to hims for sponsoring this week's show.

209: San Francisco 49ers - Know Your Rival, with Oscar of  the Better Rivals podcast
The 2018 NFL season is here, players are reporting to training camp and we're working toward wrapping up our Know Your Rival Series. The second of three installments is a discussion with Oscar from the Better Rivals Podcast, our longest tenured rival, joining the show to talk about the San Francisco 49ers offseason. Before we get to it, we briefly discuss Earl Thomas and his likely holdout. The 49ers are a team that seems to be on the rise. Having traded for a franchise quarterback and closing out the 2017 season with a 6-game winning streak, it seems as though San Fran is once again the competitive rival that Seahawks fans got used to in the Harbaugh era. It's clear that 49ers fans are starting to feel some excitement again. The guys discuss some of the free agent acquisitions and draft picks from the offseason as well as some of the contract decisions that bring up questions about the team's front office. These two teams have clear areas of the team where talent at particular position groups are stronger than the opponent. But what about areas like offensive line, wide receiver, running back and defensive backs? The guys debate which areas of the team are strongest and where there are some questions marks between the two clubs. With an abbreviated show, we close out the show with a discussion about Richard Sherman's latest comments and how little we should be surprised to hear his responses in a recent Sports Illustrated article. Better at life honors go to a new employee who went through extraordinary lengths to make it to work on his first day and the response from the company's CEO. Tony Miles, runner up in the World Series of Poker, also earns top honors on the show.

208: Thanks BAM BAM, a tribute to Kam Chancellor
Kam Chancellor announced recently that he is stepping away from the game of football due to a potential risk for paralysis if he continues to play. While the news wasn't unexpected after hearing for months about the possibility this announcement could be coming, it still doesn't make it easier for fans of Bam Bam. From his sideline hit of Vernon Davis to his biggest moments in the playoffs, Kam has a long list of memorable plays from his eight seasons in a Seahawks uniform. Adam and Brandan take a look at his most memorable plays over the years and reflect on his contributions to the team and the physical nature of his play that made him such a fun player to watch. Following the announcement, Seattle Times columnist Larry Stone wrote a piece saying he has a "nagging sense of guilt" when thinking about the potential long-term impacts on a player's health. Adam talks about his own experience of managing risk within his work environment and how it relates to how he views the issue. In the end, was it a bad decision by the team to extend Kam? In the second half of the show, one listener has a message for Adam and the perceived disrespect toward the hosts of the Rams Podcast on the previous show. Other listeners have suggestions on things to consider with the upcoming bet between the two shows. One of the hosts and a bunch of NFL writers need to do better, and better at life honors go to a multi-billionaire who is solving problems that come up in the news and to Kam Chancellor in recognition for his Seahawks career.

207: Los Angeles Rams - Know Your Rival, with James and Bear of the Rams Podcast
The way the offseason has played out for Rams and the Seahawks, things couldn't be more different. With departing stars like Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett, and Cliff Avril now off the team on defense. Seahawks fans have also watched Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson sign big contracts to go to other teams in free agency. On top of that, Kam Chancellor career is in question and Earl Thomas held out from the team's minicamp. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Rams only seem to be adding stars. Brandin Cooks was traded to the Rams from the Patriots and on defense they acquired Ndamukong Suh, Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib. Brandan and Adam talk to James and Bear about their feelings the directions the two teams appear to be going and why simply going by arrivals and departures could be a bit deceptive when it comes to both squads. One of the hallmarks of our talks with the Rams Podcast over the past two seasons, and now into our third, is our annual bet. The first year Adam lost a bet between Thomas Rawls and Todd Gurley. Last year was one between Cooper Kupp and Tyler Lockett. This year, the bet moves to the defensive side of the ball, as well as a bonus bet with both teams going head to head. In the second half of the show, the guys tease the new song "Crappin' on the Rams" which closes this week's show. Find out why Adam has some sentimentality to this one particular iconic 80s rock song that the new tune parodies. After some blowback last episode to Brandan's comments about the Godfather, he explains his position as to why he couldn't put it at the top spot for greatest movie of all time. The guys close the show with a listener submitted 'do better' for a great American accomplishment that may have gone mostly unnoticed in the news and a better at life nod toward Sandy Gregory, who started her career with the Seahawks in 1976 and just announced her retirement.

206: Minicamp player hype, Earl Thomas holdout and goal setting for the 'trifecta of awesome'
Minicamp has wrapped up for the Seahawks and now the team goes into a long six week stretch of the offseason before training camp starts up around the end of July. The purpose of mini camp and OTAs was clearly to hype up as many players as possible as Coach Carroll runs through a list of players who looked great. Earl Thomas was the only Seahawks player who didn't show up and joins other players in the division like Aaron Donald and David Johnson who are sitting out to try and get a new contract. Adam and Brandan run through the arguments commonly used against players who want more money as Adam calls out anyone who is against Thomas as being "pro-billionaire." Which strangely leads into a discussion about Paul Allen's Stratolaunch - the world's largest airplane. The NFL's Top 100 list continues and the guys pick up on the list of quarterbacks and the players who ranked out before Russell Wilson made his highest appearance on the list at number 11. Bobby Wagner shows up at the top linebacker behind Luke Kuechly. In the second half of the show, after a discussion about Terrell Owens' decision to forego giving a speech at the Hall of Fame ceremony, the guys get away from football talk to discuss a response from visor nation, Montana's "Testy Festy," the Mandela effect, and how the word about giving someone a thumbs down is spreading across the nation. After thanking some new members of the flock, it seems like we have a new listener goal of 3,000 members to get Adam into a pair of short shorts while wearing a man bun visor and doing the flute dance from this past season. Seriously, if you haven't seen the Billy Bob Man Bun Visor, you should stop what you're doing to check it out. Closing out the show, we get some closure on why Adam is against leaf blowers despite all of the evidence listeners mail in to demonstrate their usefulness. A disgruntled employee at Tesla and golfer Phil Mickelson need to do better, while better at life honors go to one of the top movies of all time and to former Seahawks Matt Hasselbeck and Mike Holmgren.

205: OTA takeaways: Brandon Marshall joins the team, Schotty is a visor guy, and Ken Norton needs a mustache
The Seahawks continue their OTAs and are also continuing to add to the roster. Brandon Marshall signed with the Seahawks this past week to a low-risk contract. Can Marshall be successful with Seattle at 34? There's one player who he compares well to who also played into his mid 30s at the end of his career bouncing from team to team. The guys explore some of his history and how it could impact the team. Pete Carroll and the two coordinators spoke to the media last week. There was a difference in sincerity in Carroll's voice when it came to hyping up his two new coaches. He also was hyping up one of his second-year receivers. Which one could step up this year and how are things going to shake out with this year's group of running backs. Schotty seems to be the go-to nickname for the new OC, but the guys are exploring other options and it leads to a rather lengthy discussion about Schotty's headwear. Ken Norton is back in Seattle and local reporters may need to be reminded that he coaches the entire defense now, not just the linebackers. The guys also have thoughts on an accessory for Norton this season to work against his counterpart on offense. Cliff Avril had some things to say about how things could have been different based on the play that shall not be named. But the media seems to be misinterpreting Avril's comments as somehow being anti-Carroll. Had things gone the Seahawks way at the end of that game, would it really have changed anything over the past three years? The NFL Top 100 continues and Earl Thomas drops again this year after having one of his best seasons. The guys talk about what Seahawks players we can expect to see in the top 40 and where will Russell Wilson rank out among the quarterbacks? Closing out the show with do better, Adam calls out a news site for a "story" and takes the time to read the entire story. Brandan goes after Twitter for a feature that continues to cause problems on their platform. Better at life nods this week go to a national park getting rid of the second biggest problem in America and to an NFL player who is putting his new degree to good use.
