126: Russell Wilson delivers MVP performance in 27-17 win, offensive line delivers, Seahawks bye week history
The Seattle Seahawks get a 27-17 win over the New York Jets as the team heads into their bye week. Considering the team's dominance at MetLife, is it time to start referring to the stadium as CenturyLink east? And how gratifying was it to see, just days after an article saying how a one-legged Wilson was as useful as a right handed Jim Zorn, Russell Wilson deliver one of the best performances of his career. Just barely into his fifth season, Wilson is standing alone among quarterbacks who came before him. The guys explain.
Wilson isn't the only one who gets a ton of credit for the win. The guys talk about how the Seahawks first rounder picked right back up where he left off in the preseason and with Justin Britt's pancake blocks, and Glowinski having a solid performance are giving this interior offensive line an attitude we haven't seen from a Seahawks offensive line in recent memory. Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin continue to catch nearly everything thrown their way while the defense is as dominant as ever.
As the team heads into the bye week, the guys look back at what the team has done coming out of the bye week as well as their records going into each bye in the Carroll era. The expectation for the Atlanta Falcons is that they'll get shut down by a Denver defense in Week 5, but we'll reserve additional thoughts until next week after seeing what they can do against the Broncos.
Do better nods go out to Carolina Panthers Mike Tolbert and New York Giants Odell Beckham Jr. while a rookie Seahawks receiver gets his recognition in Better at Life. A Ryder Cup moment closes the show, because it truly was something a person would never see happen in any other professional sporting event.
