The Seahawks come away with their third loss of the season in a truly ugly game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The offense only manages to score a field goal thanks to a pass interference call on the Bucs and the defense adds a safety. Not only were there injuries on the offensive line, there was a shakeup at right tackle just one series into the game and the three rookies struggled all day to keep up with a dominating defensive line. Adam and Brandan talk about just what went wrong and a stat line from Russell Wilson that we rarely see.

Just because the Carolina Panthers are 4-7 coming into this game doesn't mean they can't give the Seahawks a game for Sunday Night Football. The Panthers are doing well in some key areas on offense, but their defense has struggled mightily on the road this season. It feels like this game is going to come down to whether or not the offensive line is going to look more like it did against the Philadelphia Eagles a couple weeks ago or if their struggles from last week continue.

Tune in to the second half of the show to hear about the Montana Sea Hawkers fundraising efforts and how you can get a chance at winning a football autographed by Steve Largent and Jim Zorn while also helping out Montana charities.

Calls to Do Better go out to LA Rams head coach Jeff Fisher for disrespecting a Hall of Famer and to San Diego Chargers fans for their effort. A repo man shows he can be Better at Life and we close the show by recognizing a Kitsap Sea Hawkers member for repping the club and going above and beyond in his community service efforts.

If there were any questions about the health of Russell Wilson going into the matchup against the Eagles, there is no doubt about his health now as we watched him catch the first touchdown pass of his career on a throw from Doug Baldwin. With another effort of 100+ yards, Baldwin now finds himself among the top Seahawks receivers of all time. The guys talk about why Baldwin deserves to make his first Pro Bowl as one of the top receivers in the NFL. Adam and Brandan also get into the Seahawks latest injury issues and discuss whether the team let Christine Michael go too soon.

Before the preview with the Bucs, the guys take a trip to Prisco's World. Apparently the sickness is beginning to spread and the population of Planet Prisco is growing, and a former Rams quarterback is parroting Pete's words when it comes to Russell Wilson.

Anthony Nachreiner of Nach on Sports joins the show to talk about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He and other Bucs fans are riding high after back-to-back wins and he lets us know what to expect with the Bucs defense that has issues in the secondary. Anthony says it could be a big day for Jimmy Graham, but also says the Seahawks may have to be concerned about the Bucs tight end as well.

The guys close out the final part of the show with a discussion with the president of the Tornado Alley Sea Hawkers who is championing an effort for the Sea Hawkers clubs to join Cliff Avril in helping to build a house in Haiti. The current goal is to raise enough for one home on behalf of the club and they're halfway to the $6,500 goal. More information is up on their Facebook event page.

Do better nods go to the Eagles for not even practicing correctly, and Adam goes after a phenomenon that has been sweeping social media. The father of an NFL linebacker for the Packers gets Brandan's choice for Better at Life while Adam has some positive things to say about one of his arch nemeses.

Anthony Nachreiner of Nach On Sports, KGEZ 600AM, invites Adam and Brandan to come on the show to break down the Seahawks 26-15 win over the Eagles and to look ahead to their upcoming road game against the Buccaneers. With what Seahawks fans saw from Russell Wilson this weekend, there's no doubt that he's back from injuries that plagued him earlier this season and we saw some incredible "Russell Wilson things" in this past game.

With the Bucs coming off back-to-back wins, including a victory over the Chiefs at Arrowhead, the team finds itself sitting at .500 with a chance to get back into the playoff hunt in the NFC South. Could the home crowd potentially energize their team? Brandan thinks a quick start by the Seahawks could be important to bring the home crowd back down a bit. And it should be no surprise that Anthony, as a Bucs fan, thinks his team will come away with the win. Adam and Brandan both have the Hawks, but both think the game will only be decided by a single-digit margin of victory.

The 5-4 Philadelphia Eagles travel to Seattle this weekend after taking down the Atlanta Falcons and their number one offense. The Eagles defense held the Falcons to only 15 points and continue to dominate on their home turf. But they only have one win on the road to this point in the season. Brandan has this defensive front ranked only behind teams like the Cardinals and Rams and are a huge key to their success. Adam thinks that a more mobile Russell Wilson has a chance to become the first quarterback to pass for more than 300 yards against this defense.

Eagles fan Scott Fenimore comes on the show to talk about his impressions of the Eagles and whether he thinks Carson Wentz is the kind of quarterback that can lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl. He believes that even with the success of Dak Prescott that Wentz will be the best quarterback to come out of this draft class. Scott also talks about the weaknesses of this defense as well as inconsistencies with the wide receivers who play on the outside.

In the last segment of the show, the guys thank the listeners who submitted reviews recently. Adam goes after Skype and any other piece of software that requires automatic updates in his Do Better pick this week. Brandan closes the show by talking about Thomas Rawls and how he appears ready to go and his infectious personality that shows his enthusiasm for the upcoming game.

If two shows weren't enough this week, get in the Flock and tune into our bonus show where we discuss your Seahawks deserving of Pro Bowl votes, and a former NFL quarterback says we should be considering Carroll among best all-time coaches.

Most Seahawks fans knew that it would be touch to expect a victory going on the road to take on Genghis Tom and the Patriots, but our Seahawks got it done. The 31-24 win came down to the final seconds of the game, something that is now becoming a weekly tradition. The offensive line did well to protect Russell Wilson, who threw for nearly 350 yards. By all accounts Wilson showed that he could outduel Brady, but there was one stat that really separated these two quarterbacks.

A ton of credit for the win goes to the defense, a group that once again was able to keep the opposing team out of the end zone with another goal line stand. Coach Carroll helped make it a bit more interesting by going for two late in the game, and the guys talk about how Carroll was taking an opportunity to close out the Patriots and would have made the end of the game a lot less stressful. The guys revisit the discussion about Kam Chancellor from last show, because Kam came out and proved the kind of impact that he can have on this defense as he had several key plays that helped lead the team to victory.

Jen Briney of Congressional Dish, and a fan of the Patriots, joins the show this week to talk about what it was like watching the game in a mixed Seahawks/Patriots household. Because she's a fan of a team that gets a lot of sports hate, we ask her for advice on how Seahawks fans should cope with a  growing amount of NFL fans who dislike our Seattle team as well. We get into a bit of a political chat and also talk media. Even though she doesn't describe herself as a journalist, she does do actual journalism in how she approaches her research and reporting for her show.

As we welcome new members of the flock, we learn that using fire can be an effective tool for disposing of unwanted Patriots propaganda. A thank you to our overseas listeners who came through with some reviews of the show this past week, and Tim emails to talk about Jimmy Graham works as a replacement in terms of a role Marshawn Lynch filled in seasons past. Do Better nods go to Pro Football Focus and someone who was intimately involved with Von Miller. A sports writer redeems himself from things he said a few weeks back and Russell Wilson earns another week in the Better At Life segment.

The guys return home to Montana after a great trip out to Seattle for the Monday Night Football game against the Buffalo Bills. The Seahawks picked up their fifth win of the season with a 31-25 victory and the guys take a look at some of the biggest plays, concerns with the secondary, and take a closer look at the play at the end of the half. If Dan Carpenter's wife thinks it's okay to suggest that Sherman be castrated, then I think it's fair to question the league on why they didn't fine the Bills kicker for drilling our cornerback with his foot.

Considering there's a lot of anxiety among Seahawks fans going into this game against the Patriots, Adam helps break down some of the matchups where Seattle may be favored. Even though the Seahawks are underdogs of more than a touchdown, this is a winnable game for the team. How many times have we seen them perform at their best when others have been doubting them the most?

In the second half of the show we run down the winners of the pick'em leagues and we have our first person who picked a perfect slate of games in Week 9. In Do Better we talk about the NFL head of officiating calling out the crew during the Monday Night Football game and the issues that creates. Bill Belichick gets questions that could create a distraction for the Patriots, but he takes a page out of Marshawn Lynch's playbook to deflect the media. A Better at Life nod goes to Kam Chancellor who got some great news this week and is also expected back in the lineup against the Patriots. Brandan's nod goes out to all men and women who are serving and who have served in the past - a Happy Veteran's Day to you all.

The Seahawks come away with a 31-25 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football. Adam and Brandan are joined by Stu and Adam of the U.K. Sea Hawkers to talk about another prime time win.  But with any win on Monday night game, there in controversy in a Seahawks win and the guys talk about the end of the first half and how fans can expect a new rule to come out of everything that transpired.

The guys talk about an incredible game by Jimmy Graham who goes over 100 yards again and catches two touchdowns in one hand pinned behind his back by a defender. Is Bobby Wagner the best middle linebacker in the league right now? Another 16 tackles this week and he also gets a half a sack.

The Seahawks are 5-2-1 at the halfway point and despite traveling to New England next week, fans can be happy with how this first half have turned out considering the many challenges this team has faced. Not only that, Russell Wilson looks like he's back to form and ready for going into the second half of the season. Wilson even scrambled for a touchdown and was the team's second leading rusher behind Tyler Lockett's one carry for 13 yards.

Can the Seahawks continue to win games in this way? They completely abandoned the running game and the defense continues to be on the field for a majority of the game. Seattle is getting destroyed in time of possession and gave up a ton of yards to the Buffalo Bills. The guys dive into whether that will be sustainable moving forward.

The Seahawks go down to New Orleans and jump out quickly against the Saints with a 14-3 lead. But add in a turnover with their inability to sustain a drive and hold the ball in terms of time of possession, the Saint climb back in to within a point of the Seahawks by halftime. While there was a lot of talk about some significant calls and missed calls by the referees, Adam and Brandan explain why this Seahawks team should have been able to outscore Drew Brees and the Saints offense.

Seattle ran fewer than 20 plays in the first half one week after a similar scenario in Arizona. Coach Carroll recognizes the issues the offense is seeing and he says we can expect changes in the upcoming weeks. Does Marshawn Lynch's visit to the Seahawks facility have anything to do with Carroll's expectations for change? Adam and Brandan speculate on the possibilities.

Adam predicts a tight game with the Bills, but it could depend on which Buffalo team shows up. They've been up and down and now have lost back-to-back games to AFC East opponents. To help give their team the spark it needs for the trip to Seattle, Buffalo has called Percy Harvin in off retirement to make the trip out to take on his former team. While Harvin may get the attention, stopping Charles Clay and LeSean McCoy (if they play) should get the Seahawks primary focus.

In the second half of the show, the guys take your emails and revisit the 2016 expectations for the team. Adam wonders if he's somehow the defense minister for our offensive coordinator as he talks about where to appropriately direct blame for poor performance. Do better nods go to a New York Times movie critic while Adam calls out a color analyst from the recent Seahawks game. Better at life honors go to the Cubs in advance of Game 7 of the World Series and to Cliff Avril who is the Seahawks nominee for the 2016 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award.

Note: We had some technical issues after finishing up with the recording this week. Adam's audio was sucked into the same vortex as Hauschka's game winning field goal, so we're going with his back up audio AND he's on the road, which makes it even worse.

There's a lot to process with this week's tie game against the Cardinals. Not only was it the lowest scoring tie game in NFL history, it was the first time the Seahawks have ever tied an opponent. Adam and Brandan take you through the historic effort by the defense with incredible performances by Bobby Wagner, Cliff Avril and many others. We could run down the entire defensive roster if we were only handing out praise. But we also have to talk about the issues the Seahawks have at each of the tackle positions and what we think they'll do moving forward at those spots.

The guys look ahead to the game against the New Orleans Saints, a team that has the ability to score quickly and get out ahead of teams early, especially playing at home. But while playing at home, they also have a tendency to give up a lot of points to their opponents. Every team they've played at home to this point has scored more than 30 points in the Superdome.

In the second half of the show, they take a look at the pick'em leaderboard and this week's winners who only missed two games. Do better nods go out to the continued harping on the decline in NFL ratings when it makes no difference to people who enjoy football (or those who don't) and Adam goes after the NFL commissioner for assuming that all fans are idiots for not being able to understand the complexities of the disparate punishment between end zone celebrations and domestic violence. Better at life nods go to the Seahawks defensive coordinator and to an anonymous photographer for correcting a spelling error in our Seahawks kicker's name that's gone under the radar for many years.

Adam talks about how Seahawks fans were having flashbacks to last season and how they gave up leads when they started to fall behind in the third quarter of the Falcons game on Sunday. What were the Falcons doing to test the Seattle defense? Fortunately the Seahawks defense took control in the the fourth quarter and came up with some huge stops.

Adam talks about the asset Jimmy Graham has been for the Seahawks this season and why the running game may be sputtering to this point in the season. What's the most overblown story in sports this week? Adam explains why Richard Sherman showed so much passion during the game and why it shouldn't surprise anyone considering the standard this defense holds itself to. 

In the upcoming game against the Cardinals, he talks about how important it is to shut down David Johnson and how he doesn't believe Coach Arians will change what he believes is the formula for success for his team.
