During last week's show, Adam and Brandan talked about how John Schneider would look at talent across the league to make some additions. In turns out that he wanted to make a much bigger splash than the usual additions of some fringe players on the roster. The Seahawks send Jermaine Kearse and a second round pick to the New York Jets for Pro Bowl defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson. This brings in the caliber of player Seattle has been looking for in the middle of their defense since Coach Carroll arrived.
That wasn't the only trade that went down prior to solidifying the 53-man roster as Cassius Marsh was dealt to the Patriots. The guys talk about the chess match that must have been going on between the two GMs in that deal. The cuts of Pierre Desir and Kasen Williams may have been the two most disappointing cuts, but it's important to not lose perspective on the relative impact those players may have had on the final roster.
Looking ahead to the matchup with the Packers in Week 1, Adam talks about how critical the pass rush will be to stopping Aaron Rodgers. He also reminds us all about the energy surrounding opening games and how the Seahawks could be in danger of falling behind early. Despite the strength of Aaron Rodgers and all his weapons at wide receiver and tight end, the Packers have their own weaknesses. It's going to be on Russell Wilson to show up and be on point like he's shown in the preseason.
With Jermaine Kearse heading to the New York Jets, Adam and Brandan look back at five of the biggest plays Kearse gave us during his time in Seattle. As we welcome new members of the flock, we look ahead at the potential for keeping Richardson on the roster beyond 2017.
Do better nods go to the officiating crew from the past game and their slow tablets and to the Seahawks latest unveiling that has some graphic designers cringing. Better at life nods go to J.J. Watt and his efforts to raise funds for Houston and Adam brings attention to the firefighters in Montana as an extreme fire season has gotten very little national attention.
