We didn't think it would happen last offseason, and we still didn't expect it to happen this offseason, but Richard Sherman is no longer a member of the Seahawks now. What's worse is that he's actually a member of the San Francisco 49ers. A team that he seemed to have an strong sports hate for himself while Jim Harbaugh was coaching there. Adam and Brandan talk about how difficult it is to see him go there, but also with an understanding of why it made it an easy choice for him based on the circumstances.
A big cast of characters is heading out the door as we enter free agency and we give a Hunger Games style sendoff to Sherman, Deshawn Shead, Jeremy Lane, Jimmy Graham, Paul Richardson and Sheldon Richardson. As all those players head out the door there's just a few coming back through it to start free agency. The guys talk about why that is and what it could mean for the upcoming season at this point.
Because this was a tough week for so many of us, we read a few thoughts from listeners of the show and take some questions that came in via email. It really looks as though we've come to the end of an era of a historically great Seahawks defense and it opens up the doors for Pete Carroll and John Schneider to make a run at putting together another team that may be structured in a different way.
Closing out the show, Adam has words for the state of Deleware, while Brandan takes offense to athletes who are taking issue with the thoughts from fans when it comes to fan expectations this time of year. Adam memorializes one of the great theoretical physicists and Brandan explains that even as a member of the 49ers, Richard Sherman is still better at life than Skip Bayless.
