A game filled with mistakes and errors resulted in a one-score game with the Seahawks on the doorstep of tying the game with a TD and 2-point conversion.

It's time for our annual season expectations show and we kick things off with some of the latest news, including a contract extension for Duane Brown. A former Super Bowl 48 Champion is coming back to the team as the Seahawks look to the right side of the offensive line that seems to have a lot of question marks around it. The Seahawks had their first scrimmage of preseason and the guys talk about some of the players who stood out. Leading up to the first preseason game against the Colts, Brandan and Adam share their thoughts on what groups they'll be watching throughout the game. Adam is more interested on offense with the group of running backs and narrowing down some of the battles for the final wide receiver spots as well as rookie tight end Will Dissly. On the defensive side of the ball, Shaquem Griffin and Tedrick Thompson should get some extended playing time and while Seahawks fans haven't seen much from Thompson, K.J. Wright (who thinks he'd make a good future GM) says T2 is going to be really good. The guys also discuss who they see as a breakout star, comeback player, rising star, a player not to forget about, a guy who needs to rebound, and their darkhorse MVP candidates. There's also a disagreement over which player gets the coveted title as the best looking player. Ben Malcolmson, special assistant to Pete Carroll, joins the show this week to talk about his experiences with the team and the leadership he saw from Coach Carroll following the Super Bowl loss. He has a new book out titled, "Walk On: From Pee Wee Dropout to the NFL Sidelines--My Unlikely Story of Football, Purpose, and Following an Amazing God." Ben talks about what it's like for an average guy to make it on a top college football team in the country and how he ultimately made it on the field for one play at the end of the season. He also talks about some players on the Seahawks who also have underdog stories. In the final segment of the show, Max sends in a note via YouTube asking a few questions about the upcoming season. Which Seahawks running back will ultimately have the most yards this season? And which player from another team would Adam and Brandan rather have in Seattle? An ESPN writer and Apple engineers need to do better this week and a campground and a podcast listener share this week's Better At Life honors.
