277: The Decaf Metcalf Show
Turning the corner from Sunday's 28-12 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, @Seahawkscrazy on Twitter helps out by taking the blame for the loss this past week. Shaquille Griffin mentioned after the game that the Seahawks needed to be taken down from their high horse they'd been riding on. Considering Seattle was coming off wins over the 49ers, a tough Eagles defense and a Monday night win over the Vikings, maybe they were due for the first road loss of the season. But did it have to come against the Rams when there is a game against the Panthers that could have served the same purpose?
Despite their 5-8 record, there is a lot of talent on the Carolina Panthers team considering Christian McCaffery was being talked about as an MVP candidate earlier on this season. Quarterback Kyle Allen has come back to Earth after a show he put on earlier this season. The Panthers have a couple future Hall of Fame players on their defense, but have one of the league's worst teams against the run and that should allow Seattle to help get back on track after struggling to put up points on the Rams.
Before the season started, one question we had was who would be taking over the Doug Baldwin role as Russell Wilson's favorite third down target. In 2012 it was Sidney Rice, Golden Tate took over in 2013 and then the next four years belonged to Doug Baldwin. Tyler Lockett looked like he would move into that spot considering he had it last year when Baldwin was injured, but that has not been the direction Wilson has gone the most on third down this season.
In the second half of the show we talk about a couple of the latest roster moves for the Seahawks, we take a look at the latest controversy the Patriots have stepped into and we talk about the All-Time NFL Top 100 list and how Walter Jones could have the best chance for any Seahawks player to make that list.
