The Seahawks pick up another preseason victory after a 20-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin looked like they were already in midseason form as they put on a show in front of the home crowd. Russell Wilson threw for two touchdowns and the Seattle defense held the Vikings first-team offense to a couple field goals. Kasen Williams had another score and appears to have locked up a job on this team in the eyes of most fans. At running back the guys talk about the potential three-man race for the final spot on the roster and who is currently in the lead.
The guys talk about which of the 2017 rookies are really standing out and which ones could play a significant role come Week 1. Pete Carroll's philosophy of letting a younger and more inexperience player crack the starting lineup could mean that guys like Ethan Pocic, Nazair Jones and Shaq Griffin can be contributors right away.
With two preseason games down, Brandan is noticing that his feelings on two of the free agent acquisitions are going in opposite directions than expected. Eddie Lacy had the start this week and had fewer yards than any of the Seahawks running backs with more than three carries in the game. And it was Blair Walsh providing some excitement and taunting his former team with a pair of 50+ yard field goals.
The upcoming game against the Chiefs gives the Seahawks another look at a strong defensive line going into the season. George Fant's gut wrenching injury appears to allow Rees Odhiambo to move into the starting lineup, but why isn't Joeckel, a guy they've flaunted as one who can play both guard and tackle on the left side, moving over to take Fant's job?
After the break, the guys remind fans not to expect roster cut downs to 75 this year as the rules changed and now the cuts to the 53-man roster will be done all at once. Brandan talks about his experience in the Bay Area and how hyped Raiders fans are to have Marshawn Lynch playing for their team this season. The eclipse this week dominates the coverage in the Do Better segment and Better at Life honors go to a little league show of sportsmanship and a former rival wide receiver who decided to hang up his cleats.
