156: Clickbait, rookie minicamp, Seahawks numerology, and the ‘perfect backup’ QB for Seattle

May 22, 2017

Introducing a new segment for the show this week as the guys break open some of the recent clickbait headlines with a parody jingle that we hope you enjoy. In real news, Tom Cable went on the radio recently and got the Luke Joekel hype train rolling, so the guys talk about what that could mean for the left side of the offensive line.

Rookie minicamp took place recently and we bring in the audio that stood out to us from each of the players along with each player’s new number. We recognize some of the players from the past who wore the same number.

News this week made it sound like Colin Kaepernick would be the perfect backup quarterback for the Seahawks, however we’re missing one key piece of information about how much Kaep would be willing to play for. For some reason a lot of people are assuming he’s going to take close to the veteran minimum. If he were to come to the Seahawks, the team doesn’t have much more room for that under their cap.

Jason Cole uses a statement from Michael Bennett to re-hash and old story about how Russell Wilson doesn’t mesh well with the locker room. But the language he uses doesn’t even make sense, so the guys try and figure out what he could even mean by perceived favoritism. 

Chris Johnson from the Renton Sea Hawkers joins the show to talk about his work with the Seattle Ronald McDonald House. Chris has been a part of the show since the beginning having produced the music from the 12 Train that has been used in the show since we started in 2013.

Do better nods this week go to the construction crew of the new Chargers and Rams stadium for not factoring in the potential for weather to interrupt their goal to have the venue ready for 2019.  Adam goes after the leader of a country who was recently embarrassed by a YouTube video where he was caught wearing some interesting clothing. Better at life nods go to Seahawks fan Chris Cornell, a former Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman, who kicked off the 2014 NFL season at CenturyLink. Adam nominates Cary Grant for trying to find a better version of himself in his early days of film, though the method he went about it would not be recommended today.

Finally, a special thanks to Michael in San Diego who earned the title of Flocktimus Maximus this week.
