Following a 28-14 victory over the Lions, Seattle was quiet at the trade deadline and didn't give up or acquire any picks. But they did open up a roster spot by dropping Brandon Marshall. Marshall hadn't seen much action in recent weeks and Coach Carroll mentioned a desire to add to special teams. And speaking of special teams, Michael Dickson earn NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors after earning a new nickname and making a play from his own end zone that was celebrated by his teammates, by his coach and by a former Colts punter who took to Twitter to offer an amazing call on the play.
The Los Angeles Chargers are next up and Philip Rivers is having a solid season. The guys take a look at how the Chargers earned their 5-2 record and what the Seahawks need to do on defense to have success. For Seattle, their secret weapon may be their defensive coordinator who had a lot of success against Rivers in his previous position. The Chargers bring a secret weapon into this game, too, a second receiver with the last name Williams from a college we're not sure actually exists.
This week's show features a deep dive into offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's headwear selections and how it has impacted the games throughout the season. Adam sounds as though he's prepared to eat crow based on his reaction after the signing in the offseason and Brandan is prepared to make a deal with a local beat writer to track the coordinators headwear at practice.
Do better nods to go out to players from the Jaguars for their behavior in London and to several members of the Packers organization for their behavior in the closing moments of the game against the Rams that continued to impact them through the trade deadline. Adam names another telescope that is better at life than Skip Bayless and Brandan honors the Seahawks first head coach Jack Patera who passed away this week.
