Rivals Month continues this week with Oscar from the Better Rivals Podcast as we take a look at the offseason for the San Francisco 49ers. Is this team back on track to become the rivalry that it once was? The guys kick off the discussion by talking about a seriously embarrassing move by the team in deciding who they were going to pick to lead the franchise going forward.
Despite the coaching changes, there aren't high hopes that the 49ers will challenge for the NFC West title this year, but hope seems to be on the horizon with a change in the team's scheme and a philosophy for acquiring players that many Seahawks fans will recognize.
Oscar says a big reason for concern in San Francisco this season is the team's offensive line. His complaints about the ranking of his team's offensive line doesn't go over well. On a positive note, Michael Bennett commented recently on a 49ers defensive lineman who he believes could be a future candidate for Defensive Player of the Year.
After the interview, we get into some Russell Wilson talk after his notable appearance on two offseason lists. Wilson is on the list of most clutch quarterbacks of all time, even at this early stage in his career, and a list of the top 3 players you'd want to consider drafting if you were starting your NFL team.
Richard Sherman says if NFL players want guaranteed contracts like we see in other sports, the players need to be willing to strike when the collective bargaining agreement is up for renewal. While on the side of the players, Adam and Brandan talk about the realities of how salaries are structured and how that causes problems in getting all the players on board with that idea.
Do better nods this week go out to writers who are irritating Adam because they're talking about one of this least favorite coaches in the league and Brandan comes across a story that should shame all of the writers who said the playoff window for the Seahawks is closing. Better at life honors go to a 13-year-old quarterback who showed tremendous grit in leading his team and to a developer for bringing us hope about the future of the human race.
