We start the show with some frustrating news that keeps cropping up in social media with fake player news coming fast and furious this week. Adam and Brandan look back and some of the biggest highlights from the win over the Cowboys. Going through some of the stats from the game, Russell Wilson has been getting the ball out faster from a statistical perspective, but Adam isn't buying that anything has changed apart from him having more protection and plays that don't require as much time to develop.
Part of the protection includes the return of D.J. Fluker and he showed an impact in the game this week and Ifedi was able to have a solid game as well only giving up three pressures on the day. Russell Wilson is getting more freedom to control the tempo of the game and one example was the Seahawks first touchdown to Jaron Brown to put the Seahawks on the board in the first half.
The Seahawks go back on the road this week for the third time in four games, but to a road location that has been historically favorable in Arizona. The Cardinals are starting their rookie quarterback for the first time this week. Had Arizona actually put Josh Rosen into the game sooner against the Bears this past weekend, they likely would have beat Chicago, because Sam Bradford was awful. He was able to take advantage of some early mistakes last weekend and then the Bears defense shut them down.
If you're going to the game be sure to check out the Seahawks Road Crew page for the Sea Hawkers gathering down in Arizona. Check out seahawkerspodcast.com/tickets if you need tickets for the game. Hopefully the 12s will continue to show up on the road in that stadium.
In the pickem league, the guys go over the latest standings, and even in a week where there were a lot of surprises, there were people getting double digit wins. One of our pickem league champions emails in to challenge Adam about his gameday attire to suggest it may also be considered of the hobo variety. Closing out the show with do better, Adam looks at some of the latest USA Today power rankings. Brandan calls out some flopping quarterbacks and that leads to a discussion of a foolproof gamepan to take advantage of how the referees are calling penalties. Better at life honors this week go to the Mars rover and to this week's 12 flag raiser Kam Chancellor.
