The Seahawks pick up another preseason victory, 26-13 over the Kansas City Chiefs, as the Legion of Boom holds Alex Smith under 50 yards and the offense to only 3 points. Russell Wilson has looked incredible as he dials in his game this pre-season. Explosive plays to Jermaine Kearse, Chris Carson and Jimmy Graham were a big part of his 200-yard effort.
Part of the reason for his success was the fact that he was given time to throw behind an offensive line that, now with Rees Odhiambo at left tackle, looks like it may not have been impacted by the injury to George Fant. Despite Procise and Rawls sitting out another preseason game, the running game impressed with Eddie Lacy and Chris Carson. The guys talk about what that means for Alex Collins and some of the other backs on the roster.
With most of the starters likely sitting out against the Raiders this week, Adam and Brandan look ahead to that game with the idea of who they want to see to help make some of the tough decisions with the 53-man roster. They also discuss how some contract maneuvering and depth at running back could leave fullback Marcel Reece off the initial cut only to be brought back after Week 1.
In the second half of the show, the guys wonder what some of the foods are that you wouldn't want to drink beer with. Brandan questions Adam's prediction of Rees Odhiambo for the Pro Bowl and why that's what he's choosing to root for this year. The guys discuss an email that has a listener infuriated over Russell Wilson's placement on a recent list.
Finally, Do Better nods to go to some uninformative coverage from ESPN regarding the uptick in demonstrations during the National Anthem and Adam calls out the dirtiest player in the NFL. Better at life honors go to Adam's favorite general manager in basketball while Brandan talks about an MMA fighter who provided some entertainment on his way to a big payday.
