320: Seahawks passing defense goes from historic worst to 31st
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.
