Pete Carroll called this Sunday's game against the Cardinals a microcosm of the season. Because he's absolutely right the brief overview of this game ends up leading into some of the major complaints for the season as a whole. Adam and Brandan attempt to dissect where some of the major grips are, and recognizing that this team still went 9-7 shows how the situation isn't as dire as many would suggest. Especially when you consider the circumstances of injuries and 3-4 kicks that contributed to missing the postseason. 

Brandan recognizes that while it wasn't a "championship caliber" team at the end of the season, it was still a team that could rise up and get a win. Looking at how the team played from the first half of games to the second halves of games demonstrated there isn't an issue with talent on the team and how it must some different aspects of coaching or team mentality.

Michael Bennett told the Tacoma News Tribune that he doesn't expect to be back next season. The guys offer their reaction and look ahead at the players under contract that could be salary cap casualties as well as the guys on the list who are set to become free agents. The first half of the show ends with an email from Brett in Sydney who offers some of his least favorite moves from the front office in 2017.

In the second half of the show, the guys take a look at how sports hate impacts their rooting interest for the playoffs. Which teams can they potentially get behind for making a run at the Super Bowl and which are the least favorable options. 

They run down the pick'em league leaderboard and congratulate last week's winners and remind people to continue to make their picks throughout the playoffs. Last year it came down to the final game. Adam singles out the Cincinnati Bengals this week and calls them out to do better, and the guys honor Bills fans and an anonymous developer that makes Adam's life better.
