335: Metcalf ran, Carroll chewed, and the 2021 schedule was released
Earlier this month, DK Metcalf showed up on the track to attempt to qualify for the Olympics. It may not have gone as he hoped, but we take a look at the event as well as Pete Carroll's reaction to it during his latest appearance on the Rich Eisen show. Coach Carroll said there are bigger things to come for DK beyond the football field, but didn't give any further details. Pete did offer some thoughts on the Russell Wilson offseason situation and what to expect (kind of) from their new offense with Shane Waldron as the coordinator. Most importantly, we got key details on Pete's gum chewing gameday regimen.
Dave Bloomquist, a.k.a. Hong Kong Hawk, joins the show to break down the schedule as he does every year. In terms of rest days for opponents, the middle stretch of the season could be the most difficult. But it's offset with seemingly weaker opponents and a bye week before one of the toughest games on the schedule. Plus, the Rams may have received the tougher draw in terms of schedule this year despite their second place finish.
The Seahawks held rookie minicamp and we offer our quick takeaways to what we heard about the draft picks and undrafted rookie free agents. Julio Jones is on the trade block and there's a veteran right tackle who has a possible link to Seattle. Pete Prisco also offered up his draft grade for Seattle, so we have to take a trip to Prisco's World to check in on that.
Do better call outs go to Adam's new satellite radio for their two weeks of recommendations and Brandan has an ultimatum for Nesquik after their new ad campaign is a terrible look for DK Metcalf. Better at life honors go to a fashion fascist and to a Cardinals beat writer.
