The Seattle Seahawks lost 25-19 against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2 of the preseason game on Sunday. Despite coming out on the losing end, Adam talks about how he views it as a win when considering how fans got to see Russell Wilson with time behind his offensive line. Even Ethan Pocic, the least experienced of the offensive lineman, showed improvement over last season. While Wilson played only a limited number of series before handing the ball to Paxton Lynch, the vanilla style of preseason play was far less tasty with the former first round pick at the helm.
Poona Ford was a bright spot on the defensive line. Chris Carson looked like his dominant self and contrasted to the hesitation seen as Rashaad Penny had trouble getting going behind the second team offensive line. Hopefully, we see what Penny can do behind the starters when the Seahawks play the Chargers on Saturday. The Seahawks corners were not dominant versus one of the top receiving tandems in the league, but it did give Coach Carroll a chance to learn what to consider when throwing a challenge flag on a non-call of offensive pass interference. The guys talk through the new ability to challenge calls through the lens of a past non-call by officials.

To close out the show we find out that the Rams now have a possible acronym for their top corners. Instead of LOB, they can be the POMCB. Kirk Cousins' complaints about his center's sweaty backside have been voiced and Adam suggests possible testing of SAW at the combine to help avoid this issue in the future. Tune in to learn about all these new acronyms. Better at life honors go to the developers of a new solar powered aircraft and to a long-time member of the Flock for his latest email and a very helpful chapter in the book he shared with Adam and Brandan.
