The news about the Jimmy Graham trade to the Seahawks breaks as we sit down to record the show. Fortunately, technical difficulties (technically the show we recorded Monday just wasn't very good) allowed us to talk about some Seahawks news that just couldn't have waited another week. Brandan helps break down what the Seahawks may have been thinking in going after Jimmy Graham and what he means to this team inside the Red Zone.
News of Marshawn Lynch extending his contract for two additional years was a highlight this past week. With a three-year deal now on the books, it looks likely that he'll remain with the Seahawks for the rest of his career and eventually earn him a spot on the team's Ring of Honor. The guys talk about other free agent news, including a look at our division rivals as every team except the Niners seems to be improving in some way.
Geoff Baker, investigative reporter for the Seattle Times, visits the show to talk about two stories since the Super Bowl about fans who either went through well known ticket sites or purchased “options” to buy tickets at face value. He talks about why prices rose to an artificially high rate and why some fans might have been willing to pay extraordinary prices to salvage the weekend.
The guys shout out to some fellow podcasters in the final segment, announce the new Sea Hawkers Podcast app in the Amazon app store, and offer their “Do Better” nods. Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson are Brandan's “Better at Life” picks, while John Schneider gets Adam's vote for pulling off a trade nobody saw coming.
