The first show since our first show that we’re coming off a loss in the Divisional Round. While we hoped it would be another year of the podcast leading up to the Super Bowl, it was bound to come to an end sometime. Adam and Brandan talk about the Seahawks matchup with the Panthers and how Carolina’s energy propelled them to a tremendous lead.
Yet, even down 31-0, this team didn’t give up and fought back. The defense shut the Panthers out the rest of the way and the Seahawks carried a huge amount of momentum through the second half, but simply ran out of time in the end. The guys talk about what this season meant for the team, some of Coach Carroll’s thoughts following the game and some early thoughts on the team moving forward.
We get into your emails following the loss, even entertain an email from a Carolina Panthers fan, and discuss the offensive line and how it simply wasn’t strong enough to go up against teams with a dominant pass rush. Adam sets a personal goal for the coming season with his do better vote and Brandan goes after an official who has one simple job at the start of overtime. Better at life nods go to a Patriots player who risked his career to save a life as well as the Seahawks organization and a 7-year-old displaced Seahawks fan.
