In a season where your team is 4-8 after 12 games, and since it's not a place we're used to being at, it feels important to mark the high points of a season. This latest win over the San Francisco 49ers may just have to be that high point we're looking for, because this game had everything. We list of the bingo card full of events that happened from Sunday's game and we probably still missed some key moments.
The Seahawks 30-23 victory really had no reason to be that close considering the number of turnovers and how they turned it over on the goal line multiple times. Fortunately Carlos Dunlap is able to come through as our closer and make some big plays on defense to get the win. Is the more aggressive version of Pete Carroll better for this Seahawks team if it means passing on a late field goal that could have ended the game? We also discuss the season-ending injury to Jamal Adams and the continued recovery of Russell Wilson.
There are two games left on the schedule that the Seahawks absolutely should not and cannot lose. This is one of those weeks as Seattle takes on the Houston Texans, the only team in the NFL mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. If the Texans play anything like they did against their division rivals last week when they faced the Colts, Seattle shouldn't have anything to worry about.
We discuss the playoff outlook for the Seahawks (as bleak as it is), while the 49ers are considered to have a better than 60% chance to get in. We take your emails and discuss some historic moments from the past few years that could have changed the direction of the team. A random Saints fan and Peter Schraeger need to ‘Do Better.' We close the show by honoring Joe Buck for his zinger to Peyton Manning and Robert Turbin for his second-half clairvoyance.
