A deployed service member’s mother has tears of joy on the field, after watching her son’s big-screen message sent from overseas.
Happy Blue Friday, 12s! I want to start off with another reminder that if you’re thinking about submitting a game day video and haven’t yet, we’re still looking for submissions to pass along to the Seahawks. Our featured photo is a family reaction following the last game.
We want to try and keep it a surprise for your family members, though. For every submission the team is able to show on the big board, the Seahawks will contact your local family and friends to get them to the game that your video will play.
This was a tough week after the Seahawks lost 30-23 to the Cowboys. To me, Dallas is one of those teams that you always want to watch your team win aganist. Kind of like the Raiders. No matter how good or bad either opponent is – you want to see Seattle beat thoose teams.
Things got off to a great start, though. The Seahawks had their longest drive of the game and kicked a field goal and on the next drive Doug Baldwin gets sneaky and blocks a punt that Mike Morgan takes in for a touchdown. But just like the game against Washington, the Seahawks allow the Cowboys to get back into the game and the defense allows 17 unanswered points.
Even with a poor first half, the Seahawks had the 23-20 lead late in the game. It was a 3rd-and-20 pass from Tony Romo to Terrance Williams that Dallas pulled off on their way to the go-ahead touchdown. Stop that play, like Bruce Irvin nearly did, and we might be celebrating a win this week.
Instead, it’s off to St. Louis with the Seahawks sitting at third place in the division, with the chance to climb back up to the top if they can get a win against the team at the bottom of the NFC West.
The good news for those of you in the area. This might be the cheapest football game you could ever find tickets for. Looking at the TiqIQ website there are tickets available for $8 each! If you’re living near a major airport, this might be the game to see if you can get a flight and tickets for less than a game would cost you at CenturyLink. If you do go, make sure to check in with the Midwest Sea Hawkers.
GO HAWKS!!! -Brandan
seahawks vs. Rams will not show on AFn, DTS
After five solid weeks of games showing on AFN or DTS, the Seahawks game is not scheduled to air overseas this week.
With the Seahawks up against their first NFC West rival of the season, getting a win is going to be key toward winning the division and getting back to the playoffs. Getting by St. Louis has the potential to be very difficult. The Rams have been quick to jump out to early leads against good teams. So far this season, they have faltered in the second half.
Other options for those of you overseas would be to check out NFL Game Pass. If you’re overseas or stateside, check out NFL Audio Pass or visit the Seahawks gameday thread on Reddit this Sunday for streaming options.
With the first Seahawks home loss of the season, Adam and Brandan take a look at the positives. The Seattle loss proved Skip Bayless to be incorrect on his prediction and no longer eligible to be better at life than himself. The guys break down the game, what went wrong and some of the overreactions from Seahawks fans.
Long-time listener Dave Bloomquist comes on the show to give his reaction to the Cowboys game and give his thoughts on the game against the Rams. Adam and Brandan disagree on the two most dangerous weapons St. Louis has on offense and talk about a defense that has only produced one quarterback sack.
Dayna O’Gorman, Seahawks fan reporter for nflfemale.com and co-host of Wednesday night with nflfemale, is welcomed back onto the show to talk about what she saw in the Seahawks games and expectations against the Rams.
In the second half of the show, Adam gives his thoughts on a tasty Montana brew, we read through our emails, tweets and texts and give our picks for this week’s NFL games. A player from the Cowboys and the Bengals get a “do better” nod, while “better at life honors” go to a Rugby League star and Seahawks owner and EMP Museum co-founder Paul Allen.
