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. We're running a promotion for those who want to help the show and get a little something extra. Those who sign up for annual support at getintheflock.com can get stickers at $1 per month annually. A podcast patch at $3 per month annually and a pair of logo stainless steel pint glass for anyone above $5 who moves to an annual subscription. Plus, we're not running the "uncatfished" version of the show in the Patreon feed for those who have been asking for that. Do better call outs this week go to Adam's truck for continuing to find ways to uniquely break down, and how people need to learn how to ask Kam Chancellor the correct questions when they see him in person. Better at life honors go to the NFL's Man of the Year and to the crew at the Around the NFL podcast for blowing off Super Bowl coverage to honor one of their former co-hosts.

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.

We all remember the biggest blowout of the Pete Carroll era. The 58-0 win over the Arizona Cardinals back in 2012 was one of a string of performances by Seattle leading up to the playoffs in Russell Wilson's rookie season where everything was clicking for the team. Sandwiched between that game and the Super Bowl 48 victory is the latest win over the New York Jets. Should the Seahawks get credit for beating a team they were expected to easily defeat? We recognize some of the biggest performances on defense as well as Jamal Adams record-setting sack. Russell Wilson looked much better against the Jets than he had in previous weeks, but now the Seahawks offensive line is facing one of it's biggest tests of the season with the defensive line of the Washington Football Team. Second overall pick Chase Young is coming off a game where he recovered a fumble for a touchdown. He's one of a few pass rushers Russ will have to worry about this week. One piece of news to watch will be if Alex Smith will be able to bounce back from his injured calf this week in time for Sunday. With a win against Washington, the Seahawks can clinch a playoff berth before facing two of their division rivals in the final two weeks. We discuss why it's critical for the Seahawks to, at the very least, earn a division title this season. Jeremy calls in with a new trivia question and breaks down some of the top career rushing leaders from the wide receiver position. We get into the "greatest game of the NFL season" in Adam's Do Better as Brandan talks about the Patrick Mahomes 'futurists.'Better at life honors go to a successful space mission by Japan and to Kelly Victoria for bringing a magical world to life in the eyes of a 4-year-old girl and in return had an incredibly rewarding experience of her own after coming across a fairy garden. p>Register for the 2020 Podcast Pick'em League Pick'em League Home at CBS Sports Post 'Go Hawks' in the comments for the latest Tiny Pieces of Seahawks Stuff (TPoSS) Giveaway Support the show Get in the Flock!

After watching what was the worst Russell Wilson performance we've seen this season, this show's listeners apparently want to throw us, the hosts of the podcast, under the bus. It's hard to blame them, because a lot about this last game didn't make a lot of sense, so we've got too point fingers at something. While it's difficult to point to the exact issue with Russ, we give it our best attempt from what we've seen looking back at the game. Coming up on Sunday, Seahawks fans now have to worry about and wonder if Seattle can get things back together well enough to get a win over the Jets and avoid being swept by the state of New York. Sam Darnold is coming off the best game of his season where he only turned the ball over three times, the defense played well enough for about 15 seconds short of a full 60 minutes to win, and the Jets are likely going to be without their best running back and wide receiver. So what are we worried about again? In the second half of the show, we take a look around the division and also talk about some of the some of the latest team news regarding Josh Gordon and Rashaad Penny. We discuss the aftermath of the unboxing of the B.J. Finney pants that came in the mail last week. (Note: we are still taking some suggestions on what the fate of those should be.) Congratulations go out to Hyde and Seek and What A Hasselbeck for their pick'em performances the last two weeks. Also a congrats to Doc Scott on a career milestone and release of his Essential Mix on BBC Radio. Barry Sanders and Adam's Sunday both fall into the Do Better slots this week, while the Olympic Committee and Space X team each earn Better At Life honors.

The Seattle Seahawks offense looked flat through the fourth quarter and even at other times of the game, but thankfully they had DK Metcalf who appears to have some sort of vendetta against the Eagles. The story of Jim Schwartz coming up to him ahead of the game and comparing him to Calvin Johnson was well documented, but Metcalf's postgame comments about how Philly could have been his home also seems to strike a nerve for the sophomore receiver. Even though we expected to see improvements from the defense in this game, it demonstrated the team's ability to look how it should when the pass rush, linebackers and corners are able to complement one another. We also discuss the perspective some fans and some in the media are still downplaying the seasons that Metcalf and Jamal Adams are having for the Seahawks this year. Looking ahead to the game against the Giants, we talk about a couple of their players to watch on defense. Daniel Jones looks like an injury suffered against the Bengals will keep him out of the lineup this week. Jones has been able to make up for some of the deficiencies in the Giants offensive line, so with Colt McCoy now in the lineup it may be a challenge to get the ball to a more talented receiving corps than the Seahawks saw last week. In the second half of the show we talk about the San Francisco 49ers move to Arizona for their next couple "home" games. Talk a little bit about the Broncos and how they looked without a quarterback against the Saints and how this week's win over the Eagles could come into play for playoff seeding. 'Do Better' callouts go out to Bruce Arians and to the Seahawks official auction site. Better at Life honors go to the continued monolith hijinks discussed last week and to the Detroit Lions Reddit community for honoring the quarterback that helped force Matt Patricia out of town.

The Seattle Seahawks are now 7-3 and coming off a 28-21 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. For the second time this season, we watched a Seahawks defense shut out an opponent in the first quarter of a football game. It was their best defensive performance in terms of points allowed in the 2020 season. What did it take to help turn things around for the defense? By accounts from the team in press conferences this week, they simply held a meeting where players talked about what their jobs were in particular situations. The defense also got an assist from a Seahawks offense that held the ball for a majority of the game. It kept the Arizona Cardinals offense off the field. Carlos Hyde gave Seattle a dynamic on offense that we haven't seen in previous weeks. We also take a look at some of the moments that both kept the Cardinals in the game, and helped the Seahawks expand their lead late in the game. The Seahawks move into a four-game stretch of the season where anything other than going undefeated will be a huge disappointment. The next four teams on the schedule (Eagles, Giants, Jets, Football Team) have combined to win a total of two games outside of their own division. With that in mind, the Seahawks need to have some statement wins and rack up stats, especially if Russell Wilson is going to be back in the conversation for MVP. It's not just for personal awards, it's to get the team prepared for a Week 16 rematch with the Rams. In the second half of the show we take a look back at the previous five weeks and why 2-3 feels like a disappointing result despite some of the issues Seattle faced with injuries. We get into the pick'em winners from the past two weeks. In the 'Do Better' segment we talk about how North Korea may or may not be militarizing dolphins and what DeAndre Hopkins was crying about after a Cardinals loss to the Dolphins. Better at life honors go to an unknown prankster and to a former Seahawks player who embraced the spirit of giving for Thanksgiving.

It was an ugly game against the Rams that I'm sure most of us prefer not to think about too  much. Russell Wilson rarely has back-to-bad games where mistakes end up costing the Seahawks the football game and three in a row is unheard of. So this episode is dedicated to a full Hawkra cleansing of our flock ahead of the Thursday Night Football matchup with the Arizona Cardinals. Sure, it seems like the Cardinals are in a good place after winning in the final seconds against the Bills, and we get into all the reasons why it feels like things are going in the opposite direction for the Seahawks. Now we get back to neutral ahead of this game though. It's a shorter show this week as we will likely double up with shows on the 'mini-bye' after the game against the Cardinals. (Note from Brandan: No Better at Life mentions this week, so I'm making a prediction in the show notes here that Adam probably has a better at life locked in for the SpaceX astronauts on the next show.)

At the midpoint of the season, the Seahawks are 6-2, but they found another way to lose in frustrating fashion. According to Adam, this was even more frustrating than the loss to the Cardinals, because the team played whatever the opposite is of complementary football. Instead, each phase of the game contributed to something that made it more difficult for another phase. Whether it was giving up a big return on special teams, untimely turnovers, or making a terrible decision on defense when it mattered most, each phase found a way to contribute to the loss. But it's not just on the players, or on the coaches, there is blame to share throughout the organization for some of what we're seeing on the field. Fortunately, for a defense that seems to have most of their difficulty with mobile quarterbacks, there aren't many left on the schedule. Jared Goff is the next man up to face this Seahawks defense. Can the team make the necessary adjustments based on issues we've seen in the recent loss to the Bills and some of the previous games as well? Will an improved offensive line be able to slow down Aaron Donald? But maybe the most fun matchup will be seeing DK Metcalf going up against Jalen Ramsey. The last team to face the Los Angeles Rams was the Miami Dolphins. Not only did Miami win that game, but they also beat the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Sam Marcoux, of the podcast Welcome to Perfectville, joins the show to take a victory lap for their "perfect record" in the NFC West. Also in the second half of the show, we remembered to announce the latest winner of the Tiny Piece of Seahawks Stuff, but we forgot to bring the latest trivia question (even though Jeremy explained the origin of all the work that went into it).

The Seahawks put together what was probably their most satisfying victory over the season, because they did it against their rival San Francisco 49ers. Of course Niners fans will complain about injuries, the turf, Russell Wilson being so good at football that it's somehow unfair, DK Metcalf having more abs than should be legally allowed, and Bobby Wagner keeping a secret stash of voodoo dolls he can deploy as he's running through their offensive line. We could go on. Seattle travels to Buffalo this weekend to take on Josh Allen and the Bills. If the Seahawks can put up 25 points, which according to stats off the top of Adam's head is roughly half of what our team usually scores with Russell Wilson against the Bills, then they'll join a small club of high scoring offenses through eight regular season games. On defense, we will likely see the addition of Carlos Dunlap and the return of Jamal Adams and Rasheem Green. In the second half of the show, we talk about Russell Wilson and the mentorship role that he's demonstrating this year. Who are the other NFC contenders for the top seed? Tampa Bay and Green Bay are looking like the only two serious challengers. In Do Better, we're talking about analysts who are suggesting that Wilson was inviting a helmet shot late in the game against the 49ers and a clothing store that dared to suggest love and unity among our fellow Americans this week. Better at life honors go to NASA for reconnecting with Voyager 2 and to Bobby Wagner for his NFC defensive player of the week honors.

Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals showed one thing about this Seahawks defense. It's not an issue that can be fixed by a change in defensive coordinator. It's not an issue that can be fixed by the addition of Carlos Dunlap. It's going to take another shift in Pete Carroll's mindset about playing more aggressively in some key moments. Carroll already made the shift on offense, so it's possible this change can happen mid season. We discuss some of the reasons why the change is so important especially with the way the team is operating on offense. There were some positive takeaways from the game against the Cardinals to discuss. DK Metcalf had an incredible play, but Tyler Lockett caught 15 passes for 200 yards and there's barely been a peep about some of his incredible catches coming out of that game. We also look ahead to the matchup with the San Francisco 49ers and why this game is important to have a bounce back game in the division. Antonio Brown is going to the Bucs and Pro Football Talk suggested that it was some trick by the Seahawks to offer up fake interest in Brown to help make another team in the league interested. From there the discussion takes a turn to national reporters versus local beat reporters. Congratulations to Deep balls better than rainbows as the pick'em league winner for Week 7. In Do Better, we call out the inevitable shots that were fired Russell Wilson's direction regarding his MVP candidacy and a strange characterization of the Seahawks acquisition of Carlos Dunlap. Better at life honors go to a neighborly good deed and to our quarterback for continuing to do great things in the community.

The Seattle Seahawks are coming off of their bye week. This past week, two games in particular worked out very well for Seattle. The 49ers beat the Rams, which put some room between LA and the Seahawks in the NFC West standings. The Green Bay Packers also lost, which put Seattle at the top of the NFC. They now go on to face the Arizona Cardinals on a weekend that the final two undefeated AFC teams play. The matchup with the Cardinals was supposed to be a chance to see how Jordyn Brooks and Jamal Adams could offer the dynamic the Seahawks wanted to match up against the NFC West. That may have to wait, but Snacks Harrison and Mychal Kendricks could be on the field for the first time in 2020. The 5-0 start for the Seahawks means that Russell Wilson has now had a five-game win streak in six of his nine seasons in the NFL. Looking at his attempts per game, it has been a steady increase from the first streak in 2012 to the current streak in 2020. In the second half of the show, we talk about the decision to keep fans out of the stadium until late November. We also discuss the importance of making sure we are accountable to our superstitions, after too many Floridians trimmed their beards leading to the benching of Ryan Fitzpatrick. Congratulations to The Jordyn Brookings Institution, the Week 6 pick'em winner. The self-proclaimed Gatekeeper of Sports Fandom and the creators of the newest home security advice land in the Do Better segment.

For the first time in franchise history, the Seattle Seahawks are undefeated through the first five games of the season. This week's show starts off with a fair amount of concern over the health of our fellow fans. Just how many more of these kind of endings can Pete Carroll expect us to endure? While the first half against the Vikings wasn't much to get excited about, the ability of the defense to hold Minnesota to only 13 points to start the game may have been the most important factor of that half. The Seahawks only needed five good minutes of offense in the second half to help get the team to their first 5-0 start. Looking at the offense, DK Metcalf not only had the game-winning touchdown reception, he added another touchdown along with a huge 40-yard catch on fourth down. It was an incredible game for Metcalf. We also highlight some of the biggest moments from Russell Wilson on the final drive of the game, and some of the other members of the Seahawks offense. Looking ahead to the next four games, Seattle has a stretch of three road games in four weeks, and their first run through their NFC West rivals coming up. We discuss the outlook for the team moving forward. In the second half of the show, we take a look back at two of DCH's biggest predictions that he was able to reverse jinx into existence. Anyone critical of his performance last week owes an apology. Congratulations to Joseph V.T. who won last month's tiny piece of Seahawks stuff and congrats to Tonbridgehawk for winning the pick'em league for Week 5. Tune in to the final segment of the show to find out a specific aspect of football that Rams quarterback Jared Goff needs to 'Do Better' at, and learn how a popular show on Netflix is giving out advice that is less helpful than the combined efforts of the Flock. Better at life honors go to Alex Smith for his return and to an anonymous Vikings fan who is fed up with his team.

The Seattle Seahawks are 4-0 for the second time in franchise history. They've also scored 30+ points over four games for the second time in the Russell Wilson era and the third time in franchise history. The other two stretches were in 2015 and back in 1986. Joining the show to talk about the 31-23 victory over the Dolphins is Doug Chanselle-Hary, or DCH as he is often referred to on the show. Russell Wilson threw for 360 yards and two touchdowns, and despite continuing to be on pace to tie Peyton Manning's record for touchdown passes in a season, we gripe about some of the touchdown passes that were left out there on the field. Mixed reviews on the defense this week from the crew as there was only one punt on the day for Miami. However, they turned the ball over twice and they managed to hold Miami to field goals up until the point the Seahawks were up by two touchdowns late in the fourth quarter. Coming up this Sunday night is a matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings have not won a game against Pete Carroll since he joined the Seahawks back in 2010. In fact, Carroll has only lost one game in his career as a head coach or defensive coordinator versus Minnesota. If the Seahawks are going to win this game, stopping Dalvin Cook will be a critical component. In fact, this team matches up very closely with what Seattle saw against Dallas in Week 3. In the second half of the show, we talk about the impacts of the virus on the league this past week and how it has the potential derail the season. Congrats to Mentals Bodies Chicken (a former league champion) for getting the top spot this week with 14 games correct in the pick'em league.  Do Better goes to a new style of graphic for players instead of a photo and to the Houston Texans franchise.
