The Los Angeles Rams (and the NFL) had a hand in the Seattle Seahawks finishing with their first losing season in Russell Wilson's career. From moving the game back from its originally scheduled time and giving more time for key Rams players to return to the field, the shift was already a clear disadvantage for the Seahawks. But with two key officiating calls, and many other questionable calls and non-calls, this game felt as rigged like no other game since the first Seahawks Super Bowl.
We talk about all of the questionable calls, the decision by the league and the NFLPA to shift the game and the moments where the team could have made plays to avoid yet another loss to the CATFISH-ING Rams. How will the team move forward going into next season? Who do we want to come back? We get the discussion going on what is likely to continue into and through the offseason.
Looking ahead to the Bears, we wonder how much we'll have to hear about the offseason trade rumors surrounding Russell Wilson going to Chicago. Would we take that trade a year later? And based on what we've seen from Seattle so far, can we expect the team to continue to play hard to finish the year?
In the second half of the show, we attempt to get over the frustration from this Tuesday's loss and wonder what would have happened if the outbreak in the Seattle facility had turned out as bad as the Rams after shifting the game. We take our frustration on the league in the Do Better segment for throwing the NFLPA under the bus and for jamming commercials into one of our favorite NFL podcasts. Better at Life honors go to a couple of awesome women in the world.
