In the first game of the regular season, the Seahawks new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron removed any concerns about his ability to call plays and showed that he call plays around the coverages that the team struggled with at the end of last season. One passing play led Steve Raible to call out the title of this week's episode. Though that may have been the area we had the biggest questions, it was the Seahawks defense that may have had a more impressive performance overall. At the very least it surpassed expectations heading into Week 1.
Watching the rival Arizona Cardinals take on the Tennessee Titans in the first game of their season helped to alleviate any fears about the offensive potency of the pairing Julio Jones with A.J. Brown. But this game will likely go differently now that the Titans realize that allowing a team's best pass rusher to regularly go unblocked at the quarterback is a terrible strategy. If the Teennessee offensive line struggled at home, how will they do in front of all the screaming fans at Lumen Field?
We start the second half of the show with a brand new segment looking at the NFC West rivals and the notable performances within the division. Plus, we talk about our rough plans for those of you joining us at the game this Sunday.
