130: Negative plays doom Seahawks vs Saints, Carroll says change is coming in next couple weeks, Bills preview, and revisiting 2016 expectations
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.
