Description

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.

243: Day 4 of the NFL Combine (defensive backs) with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
Before discussing some better than expected performances, particularly at safety, a few news items jumped out in the news today as the Seahawks reportedly met with Kyler Murray at the combine. Rob Staton from seahawksdraftblog.com is back on the show to remind us why that was a smart move even with Russell Wilson locked in at quarterback. Wilson is going into his final year and Joel Corry said on KJR Monday that Russell's contract will need to start around $35 million per year. The Seahawks also announced that they've placed the franchise tag on Frank Clark ahead of Tuesday's deadline. Jachai Polite reportedly did not interview well, but Rob thinks the reports could be based on Polite reaction following his talks with teams. However, scouts are calling him on bailing on the workouts and that could be what causes his stock to tumble a bit. There were a number of safeties that improved their stock in a class that was not expected to be as athletic as they proved to be on the final day of the NFL Scouting Combine. There were three safeties that ran in the 4.3s or better. The fastest player of the weekend was a safety who ran 4.29. Juan Thornhill had an impressive 44-inch vertical to go along with his 4.4 speed. Rob says there's one safety to look at as a possible safety to cornerback convert, similar to Tre Flowers last year for Seattle and that's USC safety Marvell Tell. Taylor Rapp of Washington had an impressive day, topping the field in the short shuttle, a drill that measures short-area quickness. Among the cornerbacks, there were five who tested very well and also fit the Seahawks profile: Mike Jackson, Miami; Isaiah Johnson, Houston; Lonnie Johnson, Kentucky; Justin Layne, Michigan State, and Ken Webster of Mississippi St. Of all those players, Rob says Lonnie Johnson would be the player most likely still around in the range that Seattle may be interested in taking a corner. The others could be going in the first two rounds of the draft. Rob offers some final thoughts on the class as a whole and the guys discuss where Seattle may be most likely to go while trying to project 2-3 years out. One of our listeners on YouTube says Khalil Hodge is a Seahawks linebacker and Rob says there is a lot to like about him and could be a potential late-round prospect for Seattle. Look for Brandan and Adam to be back soon on the Field Gulls Podcast.

242: NFL Combine Day 3 (DL, Edge, LB) with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
Some of the biggest names of the 2019 NFL Draft are on the defensive line and players like Rashan Gary, who called himself the best player in the draft, along with Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams didn't disappoint on Day 3 of the NFL Scouting Combine. Their numbers simply proved they are indeed among the top names in this year's draft, all long gone before the Seahawks pick. Montez Sweat may have put his name up there in the elite with a blazing 4.41 performance at 260 pounds. Rob Staton of seahawksdraftblog.com joins the show to offer some reasons why he still may not go in the top 15 even with his impressive numbers. Trysten Hill, a teammate of the Griffin twins at the University of Central Florida, showed his athleticism in the drills posting a 4.38 short shuttle, 35 inch vertical, 9-foot-7 broad jump and a 1.74 10-yard split as a 308 pound defensive lineman. Renell Wren, of Arizona State, was a player the Seahawks could be likely to consider along with Jerry Tillery of Notre Dame who had a nice performance at the combine. Rob put the defensive linemen into his Trench Explosion Formula and came up with a player who joins the Miles Garrett club as the only other player above a 4.0. Ben Banogu will now be a player that Rob goes and looks a little more at his tape from TCU. Brian Burns of Florida State was another edge rusher that could be a possibility for the Seahawks toward the end of the first round who was among the top edge rushers in the 10-yard split. Rob talks about Justin Hollins of Oregon as a potential Day 3 option. At linebacker, the Seahawks may be scrambling in free agency or working harder at re-signing K.J. Wright considering the lack of options in the draft class. Devin White of LSU will almost certainly be off the board early while the other potential first round pick, Devin Bush of Michigan could still be there. Rob previews the corners to watch on Monday, the final day of the combine, and adds three running backs from the first day of the combine who fit the Seahawks profile.
241: Day 2 of the NFL Combine with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
Before the workouts were underway in Indianapolis, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports tweeted out that Frank Clark and the Seahawks may be closing in on a deal in advance of the deadline to use the franchise tag. The Kansas City Chiefs recently announced that they would be tagging Dee Ford and Seattle has been consistent in saying that Clark won't be going to free agency. With the latest news and the press conference from John Schneider where he pointed out that Seattle hasn't used the tag since 2010, it sounds as though the team may be close to a deal. D.K. Metcalf stole the headlines away from Kyler Murray with his impressive performance at the combine running a 4.33 as a 6-foot-4 receiver. Rob points out that it's not the top time by a wideout as Parris Campbell from Ohio State may have improved his stock even more than Metcalf. The Seahawks are notorious for drafting speed at the position and we learned this class is loaded with speed. Considering some of the players who didn't run or weren't invited or allowed to work out at the combine, there could be a couple dozen players in that range for Seattle. Noah Fant had an impressive day at the combine, but considering his skillset primarily as a pass catcher, Seattle is likely going to stay away from obtaining a pair of Fants. LSU tight end Foster Moreau could be a more likely player Seattle would consider as primarily a blocker and as a well-respected member of the Tigers team. Rob talks about Moreau wearing number 18 for the Tigers and the significance behind it. Reports early on in the day were that several teams were of the mind that Arizona would be taking Murray with the first pick overall. Is it a smokescreen to try and get another team to move up to the first spot overall? As a Seahawks fan, which player would you rather see with the Cardinals Week 1, Rosen or Murray? That answer should tell you the direction that the Cardinals should choose to go.

240: NFL Combine Day 1 with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
The 2019 NFL Combine kicked off this week and Rob Staton from Seahawks Draft Blog is back on the show to talk about the first day of action. Earlier in the week, some big news for the team was announced when word came out that the Seahawks would not be up for sale in the near future. Jody Allen, sister of Paul Allen, is the chair of the Paul Allen Trust and that it's in place as the ownership structure. John Schneider and Pete Carroll had their meetings with the press. We didn't get much in terms of draft news, but we did hear that Frank Clark will not be a free agent and that Earl Thomas certainly will. The first position group to get going at the combine was the offensive line. Rob talks about how Andre Dillard, tackle from Washington State, was the stand-out player who likely secured a top 15 spot in the draft based on his performance. He continues to watch for the player who fit into his trench explosion formula (TEF) to look at some of the more athletic players among the lineman and came up with 8-9 potential draft picks who shined in the testing. Justice Hill was the standout running back, topping the charts with a 4.4, as well as coming in first for the vertical and broad jump. Hill is undersized for what the Seahawks have looked for historically, but there were initially four names who the Seahawks would likely look at if they're available toward the end of the draft or as an undrafted free agent. Rob has updated his blog with three additional names, including Miles Sanders of Penn State.  The guys close the show with some names to watch for tomorrow and a couple of players the Seahawks have reportedly met with at the combine, including Washington quarterback Jake Browning.

239: NFL Combine preview with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
The 2019 NFL Combine is being held in Indianapolis this week, February 26 – March 4, 2019, with televised drills beginning on Friday. Rob Staton, of Seahawks Draft Blog, joins the show to talk about how the range of options for Seattle could be very diverse this year. Considering Russell Wilson's contract situation and Seattle's need to fill the backup role, he doesn't believe  drafting a quarterback is off the table (12:18). Brandan and Rob talk about how well New England has done at drafting backups and turning many of those players into assets for players or more draft picks. Depending on what happens with D.J. Fluker and J.R. Sweezy, Seattle could be in desperate need for additional offensive lineman. Rob talks about his formula for measuring an offensive lineman's explosiveness and how it used to be a marker for lineman the Seahawks would consider drafting (20:03). The Seahawks appear to be set at running back, but it's also interesting to point out that Seattle definitely has a type when it comes to who they want to select in the draft (32:17). Seattle has three tight ends in Ed Dickson, Nick Vannett and Will Dissly, but could some uncertainty lead them to draft another tight end? Rob talks about one tight end who would provide outstanding value if he slides down the board in the first round (39:20). Wide receiver is another spot that Seattle could be looking to add to from the draft. It's a spot they have usually selected at least a player per year. It's also a position with one key stat to look for at the combine -- speed (44:19). Technique is also a critical component to success for receivers in the NFL, Rob talks about what he watches for in receiver drills to judge how well a player catches passes (51:56). The Seahawks find themselves in need of a kicker again this offseason. Are there any of them worth considering in the draft this year (54:40). The talent on the defensive line is strong this season. Rob talks about how watching defensive line drills are among his favorite to watch and who we should be watching (58:47). When the Seahawks have looked for edge rushers in the past, they have gone after players with a 10-yard split around 1.5 seconds. Linebacker could be another key position to watch depending on what happens in free agency, and Rob offers thoughts on players on the strong and weak-side spots (1:10:21). Getting into the defensive backs, it seems like everyone throughout the NFL knows what a Seahawks-style corner looks like. But could their thinking shift toward filling behind Justin Coleman, as a player who breaks the mold for the body type they've looked at in the past (1:26:19).  Seattle has depth at safety, but Rob talks about the notion if they truly need a star to come in behind Earl Thomas at that spot (1:31:51). Having someone with speed like Thomas has been very helpful, but the combination of speed and ability have been very elusive throughout the NFL. Follow Rob Staton's work at seahawksdraftblog.com and on Twitter @robstaton. Expect to hear more audio with Rob as we get into the combine this weekend!

238: Could the Seahawks trade for Odell Beckham? The Rams Podcast and what went wrong in Super Bowl LIII
How can the Seahawks improve in 2019? This last week, in one of Jay Glazer's latest articles on the Athletic, he was asked to make a bold prediction for the offseason. His answer was that Odell Beckham Jr. gets traded. It seems unlikely that the Giants would move on after OBJ signed a five-year $90 million contract to stay in New York just last year, but it doesn't stop the speculation of what kind of deal the Seahawks could make and what a trade package could look like. James and Bear from the Rams Podcast join the show as winners of their bets with us this past season and join the show as losers to talk about what went wrong in the Super Bowl against the Patriots. Rams fans sound a lot like Seahawks fans after the season in bemoaning the team's ability to make in-game adjustments. The difference is that Seattle fans wanted to adjust to the pass much sooner while Rams fans were left wondering what if they looked toward the running game for success. After announcing that we would be joining the Field Gulls podcast, it brought up some questions, so we explain how things will look over the offseason with both shows. Please subscribe to Field Gulls through any of these links: RSS | Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Castbox | Stitcher | Subscribe on Android  We congratulate the pick'em winners for 2018 and bring on the league champion Jesper Sakko from Gothenburg, Sweden.

237:  Russell Wilson shows off Pro Bowl skills, Sunday's Super Bowl or a Sandra Bullock movie
The Super Bowl is just hours away, and we're starting off the show with some important quarterback news. It's important because it may just show how lucky we are that Russell Wilson slipped to the third round and the Seahawks were able to take him. With the Pro Bowl this past weekend, Wilson dominated the NFL skills challenges. One former Seahawks quarterback looks like he may get another chance in the AAF. For those who aren't familiar with that acronym, you're not alone. Maybe the marketing budget isn't quite to the level of the NFL's budget to promote Rams coach Sean McVay. Does that budget also include making sure the refs made the proper calls at the end of the NFC Championship or does that get it's own separate budget? If you want things done fast and done well, it's not going to be cheap. So will the NFL do the right thing and pay the money it will take to get officiating above the level of scrutiny it has been taking since the championship weekend? In discussing the AFC game, at least we can agree that the overtime rules can stay as is. Another thing that is clear is how fortunate Seahawks fans have been during their three appearances in the NFC Championship. Adam and Brandan look ahead to this weekend's game. Don't count out Genghis Tom even with a pair of outstanding defensive tackles. They go over some of the key differences between the defensive lines that the Patriots have lost to in the past. For those who don't care to watch the game (most of us), the guys talk about the Sandra Bullock movie bracket that we've been working through on the Facebook page the last couple weeks. It's down to the final four! The Pro Bowl radio announcers could do much better to provide the theater of the mind to made the game more enjoyable than watching on television.  A Pittsburgh TV station needs to do better when it comes to understanding the line for comedy vs journalism standards. Better at life honors go to Deshawn Watson for upgrading his childhood home for his mother and to Cooper Manning for helping to keep the Manning legacy alive with his son Arch Manning who already looks like a future first overall pick.  Subscribe via: Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google Podcasts | Stitcher | TuneIn | RSS Follow us on: Facebook | Twitter Or listen on our free app for Android, iOS, Kindle or Windows Phone/PC Call or text: 253-235-9041 Email: gohawks@seahawkerspodcast.com Support the show Get in the Flock!

236: Senior Bowl preview and draft talk with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
Looking back at the season, Rob discusses some of the players who impacted this team the most from the 2018 draft class. Did John Schneider regain some of the magic from his earlier years, or is it just a trend of continued success? One thing for sure we can count on is that Schneider won't be content with four draft picks and will most likely trade back to accumulate extra picks on Day 3 of the draft. The Senior Bowl is this weekend and Rob talks about why this game hold so much significance for draft analysts. Who are some of the players to look for? Rob talks about players like Montez Sweat, a pass rusher from Mississippi State and Terry McLaurin who have impressed so far this week at the Senior Bowl. Two local lineman, one from Washington and another from Washington State, have also performed well and could be potential draft targets for Seattle. Rob and Brandan spend some time talking about a potential candidate in the draft for the big-bodied wide receiver that Coach Carroll has seemingly been looking for. D.K. Metcalf of Ole MIss has some injury issues that could cause him to fall down the board and potentially into the second round. His father, uncle and grandfather all played in the NFL. Rob lays out a scenario where, if Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray falls in the draft, the Seahawks should consider taking him. Though Rob is high on the Murray's potential, it wouldn't necessarily be with the goal in mind of immediately trading Russ. Instead it could serve as a fallback plan in case contract negotiations don't go well in this offseason and if Russell Wilson ends up going the franchise tag route down the road.

235: Seahawks 2018 Year in Review
In his final press conference for the season, Pete Carroll characterized the 2018 Seahawks year as a season of growth. We look at many of the strengths of the team this season as well as areas of growth for 2019. With young players filling a lot of key positions, particularly on defense, Carroll sounds like he is counting on many of those players to be better. But as we've pointed out in the past, it's not always a steady progression toward awesome. When the Seahawks lost both Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson on offense in the offseason, we were wondering where those 16 touchdowns would go. As we hoped, a lot of those went to the run game, which improved from one score last season to 15 this year. Add that to a career year in touchdown passes for Russell, and that helped the team become the second highest scoring offense in franchise history. Which players outperformed their contracts this season? Which ones didn't quite live up to the value? Injuries were the primary factor in determining underperformance, and apart from that the Seahawks received a high level of performance from the value of the players on the roster. The 2018 rookie class was one area in particular fans should be very happy with. In the second half of the show we learn that nearly half of the top 10 in the pickem league cheated in a way that we made clear was not acceptable. Adam goes after Nike for requiring an app for a new pair of basketball shoes and Brandan calls out a USA Today reporter for leaving out some key facts in characterizing the Seahawks play calling this past season. Better at life honors go to NASA for a possible upcoming mission to look for life in other parts of our solar system, and to a Philadelphia Eagles fan in second grade who provided some inspiration to fans everywhere.

234: Seahawks had Dallas right where they wanted them, and free agents in 2019 and 2020
Russell Wilson was named to the Pro Bowl (finally) after Aaron Rodgers has decided to sit the game out due to injury. Wilson led the NFC in touchdown passes in 2018. Why was Rodgers even in the Pro Bowl after the season he had this year? After the game Pete Carroll called this year a season of growth. Is it better to lose early to emphasize the additional growth the Seahawks need? Going back to the game against the Cowboys, we dial into the second half to see when a change of gameplan could have made a difference in the outcome. Ultimately, there were two plays that nearly always goes the Seahawks way. Had Seattle made just one of those two plays (one on offense, one on defense), they would have been in a much greatest position to get a win in Dallas. Is it time for Seattle to look for another kicker after just one year of Seabass? The guys look down the list of free agent kickers and it includes a Pro Bowl player who started the season on the Seahawks roster in 2018 and a rival kicker for the 49ers. Who else should Seattle consider keeping around that could leave in the offseason. Big name free agents include Frank Clark, Earl Thomas, K.J. Wright, D.J. Fluker and J.R. Sweezy. Russell Wilson's contract is likely to be a hot topic this offseason as he goes into his last year. Seattle should also consider extending Bobby Wagner a year early along with Jarran Reed. That group headlines the list of free agents next season. The do better segment explores new unwritten rules of the NBA are very particular over which shoes teammates are allowed to wear, and the latest news release from the Arizona Cardinals for their source of quotes in their announcement of their new head coach. Better at life candidates this week include the Arizona Cardinals front office and to Seahawks fan Henry Winkler and the dying legacy of cool dudes in sitcoms.

Seahawks Wild Card quick reaction: May the Hawkra be with you, always
Seattle made it abundantly clear in this game, they were sticking with the same formula they used in the Week 3 game. Run the ball no matter what and wait for the Cowboys to make a mistake. The problem was the one mistake they made was on their side of the field and the Seahawks couldn't capitalize unless they had a short field. Even when they had a short field in the third quarter, it took four downs and an incredible sideline catch from Doug Baldwin to put them in position for a touchdown. After the Baldwin catch, it looked like they had finally adjusted to what the Cowboys were doing. Dallas was completely selling out to stop Chris Carson, so Russell kept the ball and made some plays. The problem was they didn't adjust. They continued to pound into the brick was that was the Dallas defensive front on first down. Over. And over. And over. Clinton Bonner joins Adam and Brandan for the reaction show this week. As a passionate supporter to give Chris Carson the ball all season, Clinton finds it hard to be too critical, but Adam makes the point that this was how effective the run was this season. It was so good that Dallas was throwing everything they had to stop it, and it was on the Seahawks coaches to adjust and take what the defense was giving them.

233: Seahawks have a chance to usher in a Super 2019
It's a playoff episode on the first Blue Friday of 2019 and our Seahawks are back in the playoffs after missing the postseason last year. Adam is back in his hosting chair along with Brandan to help kick the New Year off the right way. Chris Carson had a great start to the year by learning that he earned offensive player of the month honors for December. Going into the matchup, one thing that seems to be overlooked is just how prolific the Seahawks offense was this season. Seattle tied the Chiefs with their ability to create explosive plays going into the final stretch of the season and this Seahawks offense put up more points than any other team apart from the one that went to the Super Bowl in the 2005 season. The guys discuss whether that is a product of the league this year or something that's truly exciting heading into the playoffs. Adam has been hearing about how much more talent the Cowboys roster has than the Seahawks, so he wants to take a look at the position groups to see exactly which areas have more talent than Seattle. In past years, fans could count on the Dallas offensive line being the best unit on the field, but that may not be the case anymore. Dak Prescott has been doing one thing at an elite level this season, and that has been his ability to generate game winning drives. He's slightly ahead of Russell Wilson and second only to Drew Brees. Can it translate to playoff success? So how exactly did a team that was predicted to miss the playoffs end up in a position that surprised so many in the national media? There were even some surprises to those of us who predicted a playoff season. We run down the top three reasons why Seattle found the success it did this year and to a level that beat expectations. Pete Carroll is now set to be the Seahawks coach through 2021, and with his comments in a recent Seattle Times article, it seems we have a better idea of the immediate future of team ownership after the passing of Paul Allen. Closing out this week's show, Adam give us his playoff picks, shares a life lesson he learned over the past week, and tells us why Antonio Brown needs to do better. Brandan calls out Patrick Mahomes for something that should be creating a lot more controversey. Better at life honors go to a space probe billions of miles away from Earth and to a CNN anchor for giving Brandan the inspiration for his New Year's resolution.
Seahawks Week 17 quick reaction: Just one turnover away from their goal weight
With a postseason spot already clinched, the Seahawks took fans on a ride that seemed to be reminiscent of past memories. From a player wearing number 83 getting knocked down as a slant pass was intercepted, to abandoning the run in the way they did early this season, it brought back some bad memories. Ross Bell of the UK Sea Hawkers joins Brandan to talk about why, against the Cardinals, the Seahawks seem to refuse to win pretty. The last time a matchup between these two teams was decided by more than a touchdown was a 36-6 victory in Arizona. But the Seahawks finally get a win at home, 27-24, against an Arizona team that had won three straight times at CenturyLink. With their two starting guards out, Seattle moved Ifedi into guard and put George Fant at right tackle for the second straight game. It didn't go well as Wilson was sacked six times. Protecting the punter was also a problem as one punt was blocked for a touchdown and another was partially blocked. After back-to-back drives to start the half were unsuccessful following three straight pass plays, Seattle was backed up on the two-yard line to start their third drive. It looked like another turnover would go into the end zone for a touchdown until a holding call on the Cardinals defense gave Seattle new life. Chris Carson broke his biggest run of the season going 61 yards downfield and Mike Davis finished off the drive with a 17-yard run into the end zone. The Cardinals continued to fight back, but Russell Wilson put together another one of his fourth quarter game-winning drives and Janikowski kicked the game winner (something Blair Walsh couldn't manage last season).
Seahawks Week 16 quick reaction: Every time a Seahawk scores, an angel gets its wings
With a playoff spot on the line, the Seahawks put up an outstanding effort against the Kansas City Chiefs and earn a 38-31 victory to solidify a spot on the postseason. Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog joins the reaction show this week to talk about the offensive performance on the ground and through the air with 464 total yards. Three touchdowns from Russell Wilson to go with 271 yards, and Chris Carson added two touchdowns on the ground to go with his 27 carries for 116 yards. The Seahawks defense came up big when it needed to by helping to get the Chiefs off the field and go three-and-out on their first drive. Their effort to hold them to field goals instead of touchdowns on drives in the 1st and 4th quarters was also a key difference in this game. Brandan talks about how Ken Norton Jr. changed things up with the scheme to help hold Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce to just five catches on the day. Of course it can't go without mentioning the spectacular effort by Doug Baldwin in this game. His touchdown catch in the third quarter helped the Seahawks pull away from the Chiefs for good. In the next quarter, the concentration to bring the football down at the one yard line in right before the Seahawks final touchdown was incredible. But even before that touchdown by Doug, Brandan goes back to a moment in the third quarter where they game could have gone in a different direction and it was the effort by tight end Ed Dickson that helped lead Seattle to victory.
232: Seahawks DB health a concern vs Chiefs Pro Bowl offensive trio
Facing one of the top offenses in the NFL this week, the Seahawks have a number of players on the injury report. On defense is where the names jump out the most. Particularly seeing both Bradley McDougald and Tedric Thompson along with Shaquill Griffin on the injury report. Griffin was a full participant in practice, but Thompson has already been ruled out this week and McDougald is questionable. How will injuries impact Sunday night's game? The Chiefs are incredible on offense, but what about the defense? What's the magic number the Seahawks will have to put up on the board to be able to outscore the trio of Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce? It's a difficult number to come up with when they've score upwards of 40-50 points in two of the three losses. A few of the Seahawks players are looking to hit some big milestones in this game.  Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Chris Carson and Frank Clark all have some important milestones that could be within range in this game. The guys run down the short list of Pro Bowl players with Bobby Wagner and Michael Dickson earning a spot. But there are seven more Seahawks players on the list who are listed as alternates. Yet, there are still two spots that stand out as snubs. In the Do Better segment, Adam takes a run at the elf on the shelf and Brandan has words for throwback jersey distributor Mitchell and Ness. Better at life honors go to a former Seahawks player for calling out the Rams going into the playoffs and to a former Seahawks running back who showed up at his hometown city council meeting.

231: Unintentional Art
Changing the show up a big this week now that it's been a few days since the Vikings game and the Seahawks are facing a familiar foe in the San Francisco 49ers we covered recently. With so much feedback over this past week, we're reaching into the mailbag and covering some of the biggest topics from the past few weeks. The show kicks off with a discussion that looks ahead to the next home game with the Kansas City Chiefs coming to town now that they're fresh off a loss at home to the Chargers. What seems to be the key to beating some of these teams with big offensive firepower? A lot of discussion recently has been surrounding the idea that the Seattle defense needs a new nickname. There's one in particular that came up on Reddit that offered some intrigue. Our Associate Producer points out the narrative's after many of the Seahawks games this year and has predictions for what the excuse could be next week if Seattle hands the Chiefs a second loss in a row. A YouTuber who made a bet and appears not to be following through needs to do better, and Adam suggests a training program to create an elite group of mall Santa's is a terrible idea. Better at life nods go to Tyler Perry for his efforts to bring joy to a number of Atlanta-area families and to a man after Adam's own heart. Special thanks to Associate Producer Dustin Mock!
