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.
