Perhaps the most beloved punter in all of Seahawks history was released from the team this week. We talk about how Jon Ryan spent his day after learning he was cut from the team and how his new team is probably the best possible outcome for all involved. Adam and Brandan look back to the game against the Chargers at some additional takeaways from the game and how a penalty and a fumble can completely change how you can look at the game.
With the game coming up against the Vikings, what is there to watch for on offense and defense? On the offensive side of the ball George Fant is now taking snaps at right tackle. Will he get a chance to start the game or will it be a short leash for Ifedi after his performance against the Chargers? Which players on the interior of the defense could get left out on cutdown day? An injury to another Seahawks running back makes the performance of an often injured back more intriguing.
The Seattle Times recently profiled the Seahawks new offensive coordinator and the number 53 came up. No, it wasn't the percentage of hat that he prefers to wear, but the number of pass completions combined with running plays that he believes correlates to NFL wins. The guys look into how the numbers played out last season and if it could lead to a more up tempo style of offense in 2018.
In the second half of the show, the guys discuss the helmet rule that hasn't appeared to impact Seahawks games significantly, but has teams and players reacting around the league. In the "don't do meth" portion of the show, be on the look out for a discarded Domino's Pizza sign in the Seattle area.
Finally, the reaction in the media to the Jalen Ramsey story has Brandan calling for them to do better, while Adam is ready to pull journalism credentials for anyone continuing to push a very strange trade rumor that involved a future Seahawks draft pick. Doctors in the Pacific Northwest and Nintendo all earn Better at Life honors to close the show.
