310: Dunlap trade comes at a time for a change in Seahawks mindset on defense
Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals showed one thing about this Seahawks defense. It's not an issue that can be fixed by a change in defensive coordinator. It's not an issue that can be fixed by the addition of Carlos Dunlap. It's going to take another shift in Pete Carroll's mindset about playing more aggressively in some key moments. Carroll already made the shift on offense, so it's possible this change can happen mid season. We discuss some of the reasons why the change is so important especially with the way the team is operating on offense.
There were some positive takeaways from the game against the Cardinals to discuss. D.K. Metcalf had an incredible play, but Tyler Lockett caught 15 passes for 200 yards and there's barely been a peep about some of his incredible catches coming out of that game. We also look ahead to the matchup with the San Francisco 49ers and why this game is important to have a bounce back game in the division.
Antonio Brown is going to the Bucs and Pro Football Talk suggested that it was some trick by the Seahawks to offer up fake interest in Brown to help make another team in the league interested. From there the discussion takes a turn to national reporters versus local beat reporters. Congratulations to Deep balls better than rainbows as the pick'em league winner for Week 7.
In Do Better, we call out the inevitable shots that were fired Russell Wilson's direction regarding his MVP candidacy and a strange characterization of the Seahawks acquisition of Carlos Dunlap. Better at life honors go to a neighborly good deed and to our quarterback for continuing to do great things in the community.
