Now that it's been a full week since last Thursday's game, Brandan and Adam discuss the Seahawks win over the Arizona Cardinals. The primetime game gave Russell Wilson a chance to shine in the national spotlight and he took advantage by breaking out a double-pirouette move on a throw to Doug Baldwin that ultimately resulted in a touchdown to Wilson's new favorite end zone target.
The play also caught the attention of Pete Prisco, a CBS analyst who has always said Russell Wilson is “good not great,” so we take a trip to Prisco's World to see what Pete thought about Wilson latest magic show. Turns out Prisco likes a metric that should have him reconsidering how he categorizes the Seahawks quarterback.
Richard Sherman is out for the season and there's a big question about how the team's secondary will look without their elite cornerback. The guys discuss how the injury shouldn't have the same impact that Earl Thomas' injury did last year, but it's still no guarantee that it doesn't have an impact on where we'd like to see the Seahawks go this season.
The Atlanta Falcons come to town riding high on their victory over the Dallas Cowboys. The Falcons pass rush really got after Dak Prescott, including a six-sack performance by Adrian Clayborn. What does that mean for Wilson, the Seahawks offensive line and what can the team do to slow them down?
In the second half of the show, the guys continue the discussion about Byron Maxwell's return to Seattle and a listener emails in a quote from Doug Baldwin and his thoughts on Thursday Night Football. Do better shots go to the Vikings GM this week and to a fan of another team that Adam accuses of caring way too much. Better at life picks this week go to a former NFL player who has a goal to help players manage pain in a more natural way and to Teddy Bridgewater for his return to the NFL sidelines.
