After addressing their offensive line by signing Luke Joeckel last week, the Seahawks look to make an impact to their running game by signing Eddie Lacy. Adam and Brandan don't agree that Lacy actually improves the running game as Adam thinks the money would be better put to use on the offensive line. Wayne Henderson of the Packers Fan Podcast joins the show to offer his thoughts based on what he's seen from Lacy in his four years in Green Bay.

Adam's belief is that there are several running backs in the draft the Seahawks could have taken a look at and brings up a running back from Oklahoma who broke all kinds of records. With all the news focusing on the unsubstantiated trade rumors, Adam decides to cook up one of his own that is just as likely as any of the rest. If you're a writer for Bleacher Report, you're going to want to tune in and write a story, because it'll bring in the clicks!

Wrapping up the passionate discussion from both sides with regard to Lacy, the guys decide to put down a wager on it and our members of the flock are encouraged to get in on it, too. If you go to getintheflock.com and believe Brandan is right and Lacy will get more than 600 all-purpose yards with the team next season, join Team Cheeseburger in Paradise. If you think Lacy falls short of that number, you can join Adam and Team China Food Chubster.

Marshawn Lynch is back in the news for what is becoming an annual tradition, that he'll return to the NFL and play for his hometown Raiders. Adam also takes a look at an article from Hawkblogger shows that shows how the Seahawks missed out on an opportunity to address the offensive line last season and how it has created a problem for this offseason.

In Do Better, Brandan looks at how the news about Richard Sherman being a potential trade option unfolded in the media while Adam addresses issues surrounding Colin Kaepernick's situation.  Better at life honors this week go to Frank Clark, who Adam now shares a new kinship with, and to a current and former Seahawks player who were both honored at this year's 82nd Annual MTRWestern Sports Star Of The Year Awards.

The Seahawks show they're turning over a new leaf in 2017 by bringing in offensive lineman in the initial days of free agency. They sign a former #2 overall draft pick, but lose out in signing former Packers guard T.J. Lang to Detroit. Does an old mantra about this team still apply? Seattle also appears to be in the market for running backs past their prime. The guys talk about what may be the logic in that strategy and the merits of Adrian Peterson vs Jamaal Charles.

The guys welcome Rob Staton of seahawksdraftblog.com and co-host of the 3000 NFL Mock Draft podcast. With the combine wrapping up last week, Rob has thoughts on who the Seahawks might want to look at in the draft. Unfortunately he has some bad news. The position of greatest concern is one of the weaker positions in the draft, especially in terms of the explosive type of lineman the Seahawks tend to try and find. He's especially excited by the prospects of some of the defensive players and the opportunity to find some key guys to help bolster the Legion of Boom.

Follow Rob on Twitter @robstaton and check out 3000 NFL Mock Draft.

In the final half of the show, the guys explore some of the biggest surprises in free agency, take a look at a surprising USA Today article and wonder why any NFL GM would pick up the phone when the Patriots are calling. Better at life nods go out to Michael Bennett for announcing he will be donating his endorsement money to charity and to The Truth for a nice gesture to his former NBA teammates.

The guys come to you this week after watching running backs and offensive lineman run at the combine. Adam has one observation that he wants to share with everyone as a result: "I love Lamp." Pete Carroll said a whole lot of nothing, but does emphasize the importance of the running game in his press conference. John Schneider had several interesting thoughts to share with reporters in his addition to the approach he's taking to deliver a consistent championship caliber team.

The guys take their initial look at free agents the Seahawks may be interested in by talking about offensive lineman. With Breno and Okung available in free agency is it time to get the band back together again? Or should the team look at several other free agents who are expected to be available this week?

Richard Sherman was back in the news this week and the guys wonder if ESPN and the media are out to get Sherman. Based on what was in his interview with Cari Champion, it sounds as though Sherman and Champion were talking about different incidents. Yet, a produced piece inserted before the question makes it sound as though Sherman has a much different version of what happened in his confrontation with a Seattle reporter.

It's that time of year for Sea Hawker of the Year nominations and Adam thinks he should be a shoe in candidate. We say thanks to our latest new reviewers in iTunes and take a call commenting on our thoughts from the previous show. The Seahawks media combine happened last week and deserve a "Do Better!" for missing out on a key competitor. A tech company with an idea to revolutionize the Internet and a life-saving soccer player earn Better at Life honors.

Last week we took a look at the 2017 free agents for the Seahawks, and this week we look ahead to next year's list of free agents. As players enter their final year of their contract, the team tends to evaluate players for contract extensions or cut players to have additional money under the salary cap. We talk Jimmy Graham, Kam Chancellor, Justin Britt and Paul Richardson and the likelihood that a player could be cut, re-signed, traded or if we'll see them play out their contract.

We take a look at some news items this past week as the former running backs coach talks about what the team needs to do to get back to the Super Bowl, what the Blair Walsh contract means for the future of Steve Hauschka and a former Dolphins defensive tackle makes a visit to the VMAC this week.

In the second half of the show, we're looking for your feedback on the worst free agent signings of the Pete Carroll era after USA Today reports on their top three guys. In the Do Better segment, we learn about how writers waste time talking strength of schedule and why former NFL players shouldn't do meth. Better at life nominees go to NASA this week as well as a top CBS executive for his comments to the NFL commissioner.

With NFL free agency a couple weeks away, the Seahawks appear to be making a strategic move in their negotiations with kicker Steve Hauschka. Adam and Brandan talk about what may be behind the move to sign Blair Walsh, a kicker well-known to all Seahawks fans for a miss that won a playoff game for Seattle. In other news from the past week, there a number of coaching changes to report. What should fans make of these changes to the staff? The guys discuss.

General Manager John Schneider has put the team in an incredible position this off season with very few notable players on the 2017 list of free agents. Which of these players should we expect the team to re-sign in the coming weeks? And with cap casualties starting to drop from other rosters, which players should the Seahawks be taking a look at?

Before getting into the second half of the show, the guys discuss the Seahawks red zone performance in the 2016 season. Throughout the season, the Seahawks were at the bottom of the scoring percentage on the road, but is that metric even a good indicator for team success? There's one metric that seems to be more effective at measuring success where the team scored very well on. And while we're on the topic of the red zone, we look at who were Russell Wilson's top targets inside the red zone this year. The answer may surprise you, while the player who had the most significant decline in that area may not.

A special thanks to Episode 145 Executive Producer Gary Blum and an announcement of the number of new members of the flock we want to reach by the kickoff of the 2017 season. An email challenges the assertion of which Super Bowl loss was the worst and do better nods go out to an online flower dealer and a Bleacher Report scout who has come up with an incredibly confounding term. Better at life nods go out to the Patriots marketing department and the police in Polson, Montana, for a creative way to help meth users get help.

The most important news to Seahawks fans from this past weekend wasn't that a certain quarterback and coach cemented their claim as all-time greats, no, it was that Kenny Easley was voted into the NFL Hall of Fame this weekend. Easley becomes the fourth member of the Seahawks to play his entire career in Seattle and make it to the Hall. 

Adam and Brandan run down some of the latest Seahawks news from the past week before getting into Sunday's game and how the victory by the Patriots actually makes our lives as Seahawks fans a little bit easier moving forward. By losing a 25-point lead to Genghis Tom, there's now a new offensive coordinator who will be remembered, not for one bad choice, but for a number of bad decisions. They all add up to a loss that will be remembered for many years to come.

We also announce the winners of the Sea Hawkers Podcast pick'em league. It came down to a tie after all this weeks. The Patron League champion wasn't as close. To close out the show, a pair of former Big 10 quarterbacks fall into the Do Better segment while a quarterback and a group of zebras are Better at Life.

Wrapping up the fourth season of the Sea Hawkers Podcast, the guys take a look at Head Coach Pete Carroll's final press conference of the season. Carroll talks about the one thing that had the biggest impact on the team this year. Was it the distractions the team faced including a few moments from Richard Sherman, was it the youth of the offensive line or injuries the team faced throughout the season?

Looking ahead we get a sense of where this team may have diverted from Carroll's philosophy. Can we expect a shift moving ahead to next season. We also get some hints at where this team may focus some attention in the draft. While Adam was surprised to see the team focused at running back at 2016, there may be another surprise in 2017 at where we see Seattle focus its attention.

Clinton Bonner joins the show to talk about some of the highs and lows of the 2016 season. Seahawks.com took a look at some award winning performances from the past season and Adam, Brandan and Clinton each offer their takes on competition at each spot and if there were some more worthy players deserving of the end-of-year awards.

A long show for you this week as we get into a couple emails before moving on to a do better for the NFL and for Bruce Arians of the Arizona Cardinals. Better at life nods go out to Colin Cowherd and Adam's admiration for his views on the Falcons and to Marshawn Lynch for his latest trip to Houston, Scotland and how his Skittles endorsement finally won Brandan over.

With the Seahawks season coming to a close, the big question being thrown around is wondering if the window for this Seattle team has closed. Adam wonders why we are even asking the question, because from the sounds of the media reports coming out of this game is the conclusion has already been reached. But, anyone making that claim must not actually be paying attention to the personnel this team has or looking around the division at the competition in the NFC West.

Going back to last Saturday, the Seahawks season ends on a 36-20 to the Atlanta Falcons. With a week to reflect on the game, Adam and Brandan take a look back at some of the key moments and debate where things really went off track for the team after they got out to an unusual start for a road playoff game. Some of the same road struggles continued from earlier on this season, from red zone production and pass protection to not getting timely turnovers.

The talk from the Falcons game turns to some listener emails and questions including whether or not the Seahawks should bring back Jimmy Graham. One reporter in the Seattle area makes a claim that the Seahawks, as a team, are no longer a likeable group of players. The guys talk about how Michael Bennett's outburst after the game contributes to that feeling. It leads into the latest controversy surrounding Richard Sherman and an alleged injury that wasn't reported during the season.

In the second portion of the show, the guys talk about some of the things we plan for the offseason and would like to get listeners feedback and thoughts on some things to include. In the mailbag segment Ryan in Fairbanks, Alaska, tells a great story of all the effort that he went through to try and support the Seahawks and ensure that he couldn't be held responsible for a team loss based on his prior history. Aaron in Manitoba runs down a list of everything we as Seahawks fans should be proud of and look forward to with next year's Seahawks team.

Closing out the show, a school district in Maryland makes a terrible decision to fire an employee and a Seahawks.com writer already appears to be jinxing a player for the 2017 season. Both need to do better. Better at life nods go to the United States for a peaceful weekend and to the Sea Hawkers and members of the Flock who have contributed toward building a house in Haiti.

The guys offered their initial thoughts on the Falcons matchup earlier this week and now they're back with some additional focus on the matchup with Atlanta. First, it's a quick look back at three key plays from the Lions game and the historic accomplishment by Thomas Rawls.

This weekend the Seahawks get the chance to start off the NFL action with a rematch this Saturday against the Falcons. Adam and Brandan look at some key personnel differences from that Week 6 game as well as some differences in the level of health of key players. Two questions: Can the Seahawks dominate the Falcons to the same level they did at CenturyLink? And will they be able to overcome their playoff history under Pete Carroll where they have always started out in at least a two-score hole before they've been able to put points on the board?

We let you know about some events in the Atlanta area for fans traveling to the game and welcome the new members of the flock. Do better calls go out to a police chief in Michigan and to some of the coverage previewing the matchup to this weekend's Seahawks game. Better at life nods go to former Seahawks defensive back Tyvis Powell and to the Russian Sea Hawkers for an great gift for Earl Thomas.

A joint playoff victory celebration as Adam and Brandan are joined by UK Sea Hawkers Ross and Adam of The Pedestrian Podcast. The Seahawks running game returns with Thomas Rawls doing the things we saw from him last season and helping lead the Seahawks to a 26-6 victory.

Seattle also got it done through the air and while nobody was shocked to see Baldwin go over 100 yards, some incredible grabs by Paul Richardson made folks (including Chris Collinswoth) wonder if Odell Beckham had suited up in Richardson's gear for this game.

The defense helps get it done as well, holding the Lions out of the end zone and keeping them to two field goals. Adam thinks a game ball should go to the Lions receivers for the number of key drops they had, which definitely contributed to the low score for Detroit.

With the Falcons coming up, each guy offers up a concern heading into the Falcons matchup. It brings up a number of questions. Can this Seahawks team show up in the same way they did for 3 quarters against Atlanta in their regular season matchup? Can the Seahawks offensive line provide the same type of effort against a defensive line that was ranked similarly against the run as Detroit was, and can Pete Carroll's Seahawks finally get off to a good start on the road?

If this team can pull together and offer the same type of focus they did when playing the Patriots earlier on in this season, then we can expect to see our Seahawks back in the NFC Championship game.
