With the Seahawks 48-45 performance against the Detroit Lions, it helped earn several players league-wide recognition for their performance. Geno Smith was named player of the week, Rashaad Penny earned the honor of the ground player of the week and Tariq Woolen was among the finalists for top defensive honors. But was that good football overall? And how did it compare to the shootout we watched a few years back between the Chiefs and Rams?
There is some optimism that the Seahawks may be able to turn things around defensively with a few players who were injured early in the season working their way back into the lineup. There are also reason to believe that the Seahawks offense and Geno Smith can have sustained success. Geno is officially on the Rich Gannon late-career surge watch list. If you don't know who Gannon is, we explain.
The Seahawks will face a difficult test on the road this week though as they take on the New Orleans Saints. Pete Carroll has lost three straight regular season games against the Saints and Geno was at the helm the last time these two teams faced. Will Alvin Kamara play this week and what would his presence mean toward the game's outcome? Can Nick Vannett be the relatively anonymous tight end this week that destroys the Seahawks defense?
In the second half of the show, we take a look at the state of the Los Angeles Rams as they suffered yet another loss to the 49ers. Which 2-2 team in the NFC West is in the driver seat for the conference title? There was one moment from that Monday Night Football that will be etched in our memory though and we discuss it in both the Do Better and Better at Life segments on this week's show.
