282: Closing out the Seahawks 2019 season
In what is becoming an overused narrative, the Seahawks did not try and force the run in the divisional round loss to the Green Bay Packers. As frustrating as it was to see once again the Seahawks trying to overcome a big first half deficit, the defenses inability to quickly adjust to the Packers plan to carve the defense with throws to Davante Adams. Even when Flowers tried to stay over the top of Adams in the second half, the receiver made the defense look foolish.
Seattle was able to mount a comeback in the second half, but Russell Wilson was under duress for a majority of the game. Adam explains why we saw Pete Carroll and the Seahawks reluctant to "let Russ cook," because he could not survive an entire season taking the kind of hits that he did against the Packers defense. Fortunately, fans were treated to one big moment as Shaquem Griffin logged his first sack in what could have been a huge turning point in the game.
The guys talk about the frustrations that fans have with Pete Carroll, what's next for the Seahawks in the offseason and if this group of players lived up to preseason expectations for what they could achieve.
Closing out the show, Adam calls out his friend Gerrad for his move to jinx the Seahawks late in the game, and to the 49ers quarterback who had no sense for history at the end of the regular season game against Seattle. Better at life honors go to a comedian raising funds for the wildfire relief efforts in Australia and the Seahawks twins for coming together and giving us a memorable post season moment.
