The Seattle Seahawks survived a nail biter on Sunday with a win over the Los Angeles Rams. Geno Smith, DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett dominated the Rams secondary even with an offensive line that struggled against some of the Rams backups. Smith earned his first fourth quarter comeback with the Seahawks and DK earned his spot as perhaps the best receiver in the NFL. The game still shouldn't have been as close as it was, and part of the reason was to an interception call that made a great Bobby Wagner game even better. Adam has some thoughts on the call.
Next up on the schedule is the Carolina Panthers. With the Seahawks in position to make the playoffs, why is a 4-8 team a cause for concern? Can Seattle's defense stop an offense that is last in the league on first down? Or a team that is second worst in the league on 3rd down? Fortunately, this Panthers team meets both of those criteria, but they've also been playing tough over the past six weeks.
In the second half of the show, we take a look at where the Seahawks draft pick coming from the Broncos currently stands. Plus, both the Niners and Rams are going to have new quarterbacks at the helm for the rest of the season. We explore the worst-case scenario for the San Francisco quarterback situation. The Seahawks will have a decision to make a quarterback and one of those will be whether or not they'll be able to retain Drew Lock. We talk about why it seems more likely that he'll get a chance with another NFL team next season.
The Tennessee Titans and Bobby Wagner get called out to Do Better. Better at Life honors go out to Andrew Luck for telling the story behind his retirement and Tariq Woolen for leading the NFL in interceptions and setting a Seahawks franchise record.
