Fans went into this week's game against the Raiders with the expectation for a win. It wasn't much different from the game against the struggling Tampa Bay team. So we explore why it could be that this loss hit fans a little bit harder than the one going into the bye week. There is one key stat that has led to a perfect winning formula for Seattle and it involves linebacker Cody Barton. Plus, what was Darrell Taylor thinking when he ran onto the field in the middle of a Quandre Diggs interception return?
Looking ahead to the Rams game on Sunday, there are a lot of unfamiliar names taking the field for LA. Despite the fact that Rams fans will be an endangered species in their home stadium, that they'll be starting a backup quarterback and that Seattle is coming in as a favorite by more than a touchdown – history plays a factor in how many of us feel coming into this game. We'll also see Bobby Wagner as he takes on his former team for the first time.
In the second half of the show, we start our weekly watch for where the Denver Broncos draft pick currently resides. After their loss to the Carolina Panthers, Seattle would have the third pick in the draft. Based on the Broncos schedule to close the season, is the second overall pick in range? One of our listeners needs to do better after infringing on Adam's trademark phrase, and Joe Fann has a poll out that should simply have ‘both' as an option. Finally, Better at Life honors go out to the Seahawks for making an announcement we've been waiting for.
