The NFL playoffs have proved...NOTHING! Without a blueprint of "what wins" right now in the NFL, Brock and Salk believe there is nothing in the way of their ability to rebuild a championship-caliber roster this offseason. But can they do it without adjusting their long-held strategy in free agency? Salk has an idea to fix NFL overtime and Brock isn't buying it. Has the value of coaching in the NFL diminished over time? Brock & Salk rapid fire through some interesting debates that impact the Seahawks. Brock gives an update on the progress made by new UW head football coach Kalen Deboer in Blue 88, plus some optimism from Mike Salk about the MLB lockout. Yeah, it's a weird podcast. So you should listen to it. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In NFL Headlines, the Giants don't hold anything back when introducing their new GM. Also, MLB is doing themselves no favors in the public eye by letting the lockout drag on.

The Seahawks franchise may not have made the kind of coaching change that some fans were calling for this offseason, but they did make the move that we figured would be the most likely. Defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. is out after spending 2010-2014 as linebackers coach for the team and as DC since his return in 2018. Seattle will also be looking for a new coach in the secondary and at quarterback coach. So where do they go next? Do they promote from within? Do they hire a coach who Pete Carroll has history with? Or do they find someone with head coaching experience that can collaborate with Pete Carroll and offer a dynamic we haven't quite seen during his time in Seattle? We discuss why finding a coordinator with head coaching experience is preferred over someone who has never made the jump from coordinator to head coach. In the second half of the show, we discuss the playoff games that our NFC West rivals took part in and how the divisional round should be the end of their playoff journey. A former Seahawks player gets a strong Do Better, and we question why media members at Dak Prescott's press conference didn't seem to be too concerned with his post-game commentary until the following day. Better at Life honors go out to a long-time listener for finding evidence of the NFL's favoritism in Rams coverage and to the developers at Google for honoring a legend. 2021 Podcast Pick'em League Post 'Go Hawks' in the comments for the latest
