After losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday, the Seahawks were left with a short week to prepare for the Chicago Bears. Thursday's matchup was supposed to feature Drew Lock with the first-team offense, but shortly following that announcement was another announcement that the former Broncos QB would have to sit out. Will this change how the Seahawks approach who ultimately starts for the team in Week 1?
We look back to the Steelers game at some of the positive and negative takeaways from the first outing of the season. The rookie cornerbacks could not stop a Steelers rookie receiver and one of the two found himself on his back on one play in the first quarter. Seattle's offensive and defensive lines showed promise throughout the game. Unfortunately, the defense was difficult to evaluate as a whole because of all the missed tackles. We discuss why that's the least concerning of the issues we saw on defense.
With Thursday's matchup against the Chicago Bears, what are some of the key things to watch? Geno Smith will now get the start and we'll likely get to see Jacob Eason get some extended time on the field. Can the corners bounce back after that rough outing? There's one player in particular we hope to see with snaps against the Bears first-team offense after a nice debut.
In the second half of the show, we discuss our anniversary of the show. We also talk about which NFC West team seems to be the most excited after the first week of preseason action. We call on the NFL Network and a local police department to do better. Better at life nods go out to Montana fire fighters and to a group of people who picked up some slack in recent days.
