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.

We've raved about the Rain City Redemption series in the past. It's a must watch set of videos for Seahawks fans and it's hard to believe it has been as long as it has since the last movie in the series.

 

The Rain City Miracle came out this week and creator of the series William Cornell joins us once again to talk about what went into this project and why he felt this was a story that needed to be told and in the archives along with previous episodes. He talks about the process it takes to put something like this together and why this video takes a bit of a different approach compared to previous episodes in the series.

 

One of the videos greatest attributes, since it's about an amazing comeback in the NFC Championship game, we don't even have to suffer through another viewing of the play from the following game. You know which play we mean.

 

Look back at some of the adversity from that season as well as some key moments that foreshadow this team's ability to never doubt themselves even when it looks like there is no chance to win. This is how the 2014 season should be remembered!

The Seahawks close out the regular season with their fifth straight 10-win season. It's an incredible accomplishment, so why do so many Seahawks fans seem down? Maybe it's because the team was a field goal kick or maybe even an extra point away from having a first round bye. If there's one small upside, it's that we don't have to wait an extra week to cheer our Seahawks on in the playoffs. 

Before the guys break down areas where the Seahawks may look to exploit this Lions team, they look back at a win over the 49ers. Again, a lot of fans were down about this game and the guys talk about why it may have had something to do with how this game started and expectations for a need to come out with a more dominant result on the scoreboard.

Adam watched this game after hearing the fan reaction of the game and talks about his reaction to the Seahawks performance. Was it a mistake to pull Russell so early in the fourth quarter? The guys talk about what they liked from T-Boyk's performance late in the game.

Going into this game, the guys are chock full of stats on how the Lions have performed this season. The Seahawks have a clear edge when it comes to the Seattle defense versus the Detroit defense, but Adam and Brandan look at what Stafford has done so many times this season to help the Lions overcome fourth quarter deficits.

After the break, the guys get into the Do Better and Better at Life segments. An Ohio State Buckeye fan crosses the line in how fans should react to player performance and the Carolina Panthers show why they might be the most mentally weak team in the NFL this season. Two defensive standouts this season carry the final segment as Frank Clark and Bobby Wagner get credit for leadership on the sidelines and performance on the field.

If you're angry about this last game against the Cardinals, this is the show to listen to. We share your emotion, passion and disappointment with how this last game went for the Seahawks, because there was so much to be upset about. There were issues on offense, issues on defense, issues on special teams, beloved players were injured and the Seahawks lost their hold on the #2 seed. Now we have to also be Saints fans in addition to being Seahawks fans this final week of the season.

After an incredibly poor showing in the first half, the Seahawks offense managed to get things going in the second half. Doug Baldwin lit up the Cardinals defense and Russell Wilson threw for 350 yards and four touchdowns. But turnovers and special teams cost the team in this game as well as a deep touchdown pass that gave the Cardinals easy points. The guys discuss whether or not it's ever okay to boo your team.

Seattle is in the postseason and a win over the San Francisco 49ers guarantees they won't play the Giants in the first round of the playoffs. The guys talk about strategies in terms of playing time for the team and whether or not a bye is a good thing for this Seattle team.

The Bills as well as the outrage culture on Twitter are targeted this week in the Do Better segment and Better at Life nods go to a basketball player for the Cavs and a Chiefs defensive lineman.

Your Seahawks are NFC West Champions as they finally put an end to the Rams three-game win streak. It only took and entire season of reverse jinxes to give the team an assist. Though the Seahawks won convincingly, the final score of 24-3 still seemed too close and a big part was due to some questionable decisions by the Rams interim coach. There were so many things to be happy about with this Seahawks performance: the Housing Commissioner (Avril) built more houses, Doug Baldwin broke some ankles, Bennett reminded us how many pumps is too many, and Jon Ryan made "the face" again.
The Seahawks continue to close out the season against NFC West opponents with their final regular season game at CenturyLink against the Arizona Cardinals. Darin Pike joins the show to take credit for calling his shot on the downfall of the Cards and explain why the Seahawks team seems to perform well at home and has struggled on the road. There's one variable that seems to explain the performance of the offensive line on the road vs playing at home.

A pass on the 1-yard line gives Richard Sherman a flashback and it leads to a confrontation with a reporter after his press conference. Earl Thomas speaks out as to what he may have been thinking in the moments after his season ending injury. The guys take a look at both issues and talk about how different a prominent headline you're seeing in the media could be different and also much less interesting.

Do better nods this week go any media members who think the NFL shouldn't consider how bad it looks when they fine good guys who do things against the rules and the guys come up with a solution to determine who should and shouldn't get fined. Adam continues to work with Santa and discovers that people have a strange preference for unbroken candy canes. Better at life nominees this week are Richard Sherman (twice) and the rest of the Seahawks who earned Pro Bowl spots this year. We even include the Pro Bowl alternates.

The Seahawks suffer their worst loss since Charlie Whitehurst was in on backup duty for Matt Hasselbeck and the guys talk about how it got so bad on Sunday that Doug Balwin's facemask was throwing interceptions. Adam talks about why he was legitimately to blame for the Seahawks loss and not Russell Wilson or the offensive line, but we still discuss which of the other two could have majorly contributed to the loss.

James and Bear of the LA Rams Podcast join us this week to look ahead to the Thursday night matchup with the Seahawks. With Jeff Fisher getting fired on Monday, does that mean the Rams lose the binder full of trick plays they use against the Seahawks? Not only does LA come into the game with a different head coach, they come in with a different quarterback than we saw Seattle face earlier this season.

In a shortened second half of the show, the guys get to a call and a couple emails that came in before the game. Chris Sims catches Adam's attention with a 60-second video clip that lands him  on the do better list this week. The MVP of the MLS Cup gets Brandan's better at life nod this week as the Seattle Sounders earn a title on Saturday.

Putting the nail in the coffin of any playoff hopes the Panthers may have had for this season should feel good, especially when it's a 40-7 beatdown that started from the first play of the game. But unfortunately this win feels like a loss with Earl Thomas going down for the season with a broken leg. Adam and Brandan talk about some of the biggest plays in the  win, why Justin Britt may be the team MVP and how this defense will look without Thomas.

It's the first time he'll miss any major time and the guys talk about his tweet where he said he was thinking about retirement. With one Thomas out, there is another Thomas "in" and that's Thomas Rawls who looked like the running back we remember from the 2015 season.  Young players like Rawls, Lockett and Frank Clark could be the catalyst the team needs at this point of the season going into the playoffs.

With Marshawn Lynch on the sideline at this game, it caught the attention of Pete Prisco. He likens the visit by Lynch to the high school grad that comes back to hang out at school events. Turns out, Prisco had a very interesting way he liked to retaliate against fellow athletes and he once threatened to do the same to Lynch.

The Legion of Boom will face a big test this week without their star safety as they go into Lambeau, a place the team hasn't won at since 1999. When Holmgren brought Matt Hasselbeck to the Seahawks, did it somehow lead to a curse that keeps this team from winning in Green Bay?

This week's Sea Hawker spotlight focuses on Patrick Seahawk Duncan who was recently featured on Tackle My Ride on NFL Network. He reveals some behind the scenes stories and talks about what it was like to have Cliff Avril deliver his truck at the final reveal. The Kitsap Sea Hawkers are also raffling off some prizes for charity. You can reach out to Patrick on his Facebook page if you'd like to help support the effort.

There's a do better for a player who could ruin a fun thing for the rest of the league by making a bad decision on which foundation to support with his cleats and for a football fan who stiffed his cab driver. Adam gives his better at life nod to Santa Mike, who may in fact be the actual Santa.  Brandan calls attention to Steve Hauschka who has once again proven that he might be the best ping pong player in the Greater Seattle area.

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.
