Seattle drops its first game of the 2017 season after going into Lambeau Field and losing 17-9 to the Green Bay Packers. Despite the Seahawks remaining winless there since 1999, fans had a lot of reason for optimism after seeing how the defense performed against one of the league's top teams and top quarterback. The Seahawks defense nearly got the team its first points on an Aaron Rodgers interception by rookie Naz Jones. But the play was called back because of a pair of penalties, one that got Jeremy Lane ejected from the game less than 10 defensive snaps into the game.
The ejection gave Pete Carroll and the Seahawks an long look at rookie Shaquille Griffin and slot corner Justin Coleman. Both seemed to complement a squad stacked with Pro Bowl defenders. Former Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson played like the interior defender the Seahawks have been looking for. The guys talk about the historic defense Pete Carroll grew up watching and how that might play a role in his continued pursuit toward producing an all-time defensive unit.
While penalties did play a role in this game, it wasn't the reason they lost. Adam and Brandan talk about the plays that would have allowed Seattle to come away with a victory.
Coming back home to play a 49ers team that also struggled to move the ball should give them a good chance to get in win column. Which team can fix their offensive line issues enough in time for Sunday will have an edge over the competition. The talent differential between these two teams is a big gap to overcome for the 49ers and first-year head coach Kyle Shanahan. Adam talks about how the vistitng coaches gutsy nature could factor into the game.
After last week's show, we learned details from an incident Michael Bennett was involved with in Las Vegas a couple weeks back. The guys share some clips of the press conference from Las Vegas police and some of the stories players shared during their talks with local media.
Do better callouts this week go to a team that reminds Brandan of his kids' poor habit of not listening the first time as Adam calls out a sideline reporter. Better at life nods go to a retired piece of technology and a reporter who recognizes a Spokane couple married for 75 years with names matching two devastating hurricanes.
