The Seahawks offense fell short against a Bengals defense that was smashing up against a second-string offensive line. Geno Smith missed several throws, some due to pressure, and some due to a subpar performance. We go through some of the points of the game that appeared to be the quarterback's fault and other parts where blame could be pushed toward coaching, penalties, play calling and other execution issues. Does DK Metcalf deserve any blame and we wonder if he's hearing any of the criticism that is building for some unnecessary antics?
With the loss behind them, the Seahawks head back home for a stretch of two home games. The division rival Arizona Cardinals are only 1-5 on the season, but they've been playing tough and shouldn't be taken lightly (even in spite of their recent effort against the Rams). We discuss some of the players to watch for and the expectations for our Seahawks.
Looking ahead to the next few weeks, what are some of the expectations for the Seahawks defense? Adam drops the average number of points he expects this defense to allow over the next few weeks. If it happens, we're going to be taking about a solid record and a defense that should be viewed among the best in the league going into the second half of the season. A mouse and a segment of sports media going after a fan need to do better. Better at life honors go out to the defenders of our quarterback and a segment of the flock who met up in London.
