The Guru, Jake Heaps, joins Danny and Paul for Blue 42 to answer the question...Will Jarran Reed be a Seahawk for the 2020 season? And it's time to relive some of the glory days of the NBA as JR Rider and Kevin Garnett separately tell a hilarious story of how trash talking Michael Jordan didn't go well for them.
David Ortiz questions why former Astros pitcher, Mike Fiers, is just now coming out with the information on the club cheating. Danny and Paul continue the discussion from Big Papi and why Mike Fiers will be criticized the most even though he was the one who told the truth. Also the NFL owners have passed the vote on the extra regular season game and two more teams going to the playoffs. Now the vote goes to the players association. How will these players deal with the bosses putting pressure on them to accept this new deal?

Then a new conversation emerges around NFL Draftee Joe Burrow who says he has "leverage" in the draft.
The Seahawks have signed veteran TE Greg Olsen to a one-year $7 million deal.

And with so many MLB players sharing their opinions on the Astros scandal, Danny and Paul break down if they really trust sports league investigations.
The first move of free agency has been made by the Arizona Cardinals who signed D.J. Humphries to a 3-year $45-million-dollar deal. Who’s next and what does this deal mean for other offensive tackles around the league like Germaine Ifedi? And the cheating story around the Astros keeps developing with more players speaking out and MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred’s thoughts on how the players should be punished.

While Danny thinks Jim Crane is a maniacal genius for the way he handled the press conference yesterday, Bumpus is ready to move on. They cheated, MLB isn't gonna do anything and it's over. We spin the Wheel of Non-F-L and land on Kendrick Perkins' disdain for Kyrie Irving. If you could take one player off any NFC West team to make it easier to root against them?
How good is the Seahawks offensive line? Did they falter in the way they handled Germain Ifedi? In What to Watch for, we take a look at Greg Olsen's free agency tour, Washington hoops losing again and the latest on Mitch Haniger's surgery. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive! Taijuan Walker joins us from Peoria, Arizona to talk about rejoining the Mariners. Finally, is Jim Crane actually an evil genius?
The Astros have had weeks to plan for this press conference and they just plain struck out. Where does this stack up against the worst sports apologies of the past? In Around the NFL, we check out Jameis Winston's eye surgery, possible landing spots for Andy Dalton and just how attractive Devonta Freeman would be if he becomes available. Alex Bregman had a better apology for carrying his bat to first base in the World Series than he did for the cheating scandal today. Jim Crane doubled down on solely blaming those who were fired and not the players. Finally, we raise and throw our flags!
In Blue 42 with Brock Huard we ask three important football questions, including: what is the biggest off-season priority for the Seahawks? Should Jim Crane have been punished for his role in the Astros scandal?How would you have handled the press conference if you were in the Astros position? Why are so many sports apologies so bad?

Greg Olsen is on his way to Seattle and it's a great opportunity for the Seahawks to start with a splash in free agency. Finally, we raise and throw our flags.

Myles Garrett has been reinstated - was his punishment sufficient? Would the addition of a superstar wide receiver be detrimental to DK Metcalf's development?

We give you three things to be excited to watch this upcoming Mariners season. In What to Watch for, Greg Olsen visits the Seahawks, the Mariners add Carlos Gonzales and Mel Tucker leaves Colorado. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive! Who do you have hungry eyes for in free agency? Will Josh Gordon be back next year? While it would be nice to have him, the Seahawks can't put themselves in the position to depend on him. Is Robby Anderson someone they'd consider? Does Mike Holmgren belong in the Hall of Fame?
Should the Seahawks pursue Michael Bennett? What about the other free agents on the market? We create free agency rules. In Around the NFL we discuss Philip Rivers' potential landing spot, Tua Tagovailoa's health and Taysom Hill's future. Why do teams still coddle quarterbacks? Finally, we throw and raise our flags.

Which teams will be looking for a quarterback in the draft this season? Where will the veterans land? Is Mike Bolsinger's lawsuit against the Astros legitimate? Where do the Seahawks draw the line with second chances?
Is Michael Bennett coveting the Seahawks? What are the chances the Seahawks return the favor?

Should the Seahawks go after a veteran corner? Is an expanded MLB playoff format a good thing or a bad thing?
The XFL had a really good opening weekend, but does the league need more star power in order to keep viewers interested? Around the NFL: Russell Wilson is snubbed off of a "Most Clutch Players" list, and Robert Saleh is being pursued by Michigan State for their head coaching job. Then, we bust out the big board to determine who the Seahawks should go after in free agency. The show ends with us throwing flags!
Brock Huard joins the show for another version of Blue 42! What did he think of the first week of the XFL? And what the heck is going on with Russell Wilson's hair? We continue The HawkScars with the Best Play of the Year. Was it Tyler Lockett's tiptoe TD catch? Or Josh Gordon's diving catch? Then, AJ Hinch interviewed with MLB Network on Friday, are we feeling sympathy for him?
The XFL got off to a really good start in their first week of action, what did Danny and Paul like the most about the XFL? After we bust out the big board to determine who the Seahawks should go after in free agency, we begin our own version of The Oscars, The HawkScars! Who wins best original screenplay? Also, UW spent an insane amount of money in just one weekend for visiting recruits, so why can't the players get paid?
The cooking people are running rampant and Wyman isn't into it. How much blame should Brian Schottenheimer take in offensive shortfalls? In Around the NFL, Patrick Mahomes is due for a mega pay day, Eric Weddle retires and what is going on in Dallas? Why do the Seahawks tend to slow down toward the end of the season, rather than heat up like they used to? Are injuries solely to blame? Finally, we throw and raise our flags!

How much will the Super Bowl loss affect Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers moving forward?

Finally, we throw and raise our flags.
In Blue 42 with Brock Huard we ask three important football questions, including what DK Metcalf needs to do to avoid a sophomore slump. Would the Seahawks be better off with Jadeveon Clowney or two more additions on the line? We spin the 'Wheel of Non-FL' and land on: The NBA dunk contest. There are other contenders that could vie for Jadeveon Clowney's attention - should the Seahawks negative recruit?
We all know we want Jadeveon Clowney back here, but Brady Henderson of ESPN makes a logical argument for why they might not. In What to Watch For, is Travis Kelce going to stop trying so hard and why is James Paxton so unlucky with injuries? John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive! Brady Henderson, of ESPN tells us why he doesn't think the Seahawks will re-sign Jadeveon Clowney. Finally, Bomani Jones has some very astute observations about Jimmy Garoppolo and we can't stop laughing.
Danny thinks that Pete Carroll subscribes to the same theory as Bobby Knight, who says more games are lost than won. He just has an extremely different way of executing within that belief. Paul interprets this as patience and believes the pass sets up the run as much as the run sets up the pass. We take a trip Around the NFL and ponder Darius Slay as a potential trade target for the Seahawks. Patrick Mahomes is at Disney World - which is the best amusement park? Finally, we throw and raise our flags!

How do the Seahawks properly court Jadeveon Clowney?
Would the Seahawks offense benefit from a better defense? In What to Watch For we dive into the Mookie Betts trade, Mark Dantonio stepping down and KJ Costello's interesting choice. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive! Would Emmanuel Sanders be a good fit in Seattle? How frustrated was he with Jimmy Garoppolo? Danny is hesitant to bring in receivers from other teams while Paul is hesitant to bring in pass rushers. Pete Rose has somehow made another bad situation worse.
Is Jimmy G 'the guy' for the 49ers? Don't you know it when you see it? If so, when has Jimmy shown it? In What to Watch For, we check out Marco Gonzales' extension, UFC's upcoming visit to Seattle and whether or not Vic Beasley is a target for the Seahawks. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive! Is it fair to compare Russell Wilson and Patrick Mahomes? What does Patrick bring, if anything, that Russell doesn't? Russell also had some things to say about the Seahawks offense and we try to figure out exactly what it was.
When do you know you have 'your guy' at quarterback? Do the Niners have him in Jimmy Garropolo? In Around the NFL, we explore London with the Jaguars, Odell Beckham in Cleveland and some heartwarming news in the wake of the Super Bowl. Greg Olsen is visiting Seattle. This could be great for the Seahawks. Where else will the Seahawks explore free agency? Finally, we raise and throw our flags.
In Blue 42 with Brock Huard, we ask three important football questions, including: what does Patrick Mahomes bring to the table that Russell Wilson doesn't? In breaking news, it turns out the Seahawks will host Greg Olsen for a visit. This is great news. How much talent do the Seahawks actually have on their defensive staff? There are a few stars, but there are more that need to take a step.
What kind of quarterback do the Niners have in Jimmy Garoppolo? Can he take the next step and, if so, how does he do it? In Around the NFL, we take you through the NFL honors from the weekend and wonder how Lamar Jackson ended up a unanimous MVP. How can we compare Russell Wilson and Patrick Mahomes? Is it even fair to do so? Finally, we raise and throw our flags.
In Blue 42 with Brock Huard, we ask three important football questions, including which Super Bowl play was the biggest. What did you think about the halftime show? What happened to the 49ers in the second half of the Super Bowl? Danny relishes in three 49ers plays that didn't go San Francisco's way. The 49ers didn't appear to have a lot of trust in Jimmy Garoppolo yesterday. What does their future look like with him?
Was this everything we wanted in a Super Bowl? Seattle fans certainly got a lot of what they wanted. In What to Watch For, the Huskies fall again, Steve Hutchinson goes into the Hall of Fame and Patrick Mahomes wins Super Bowl MVP. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive! Is clutch a thing and if so, is Patrick Mahomes the title-holder now? How far off are the Seahawks from what we saw in the Chiefs last night?
Gregg Rosenthal of the NFL Network joins us from Miami to tell us about his experience with Seahawks Twitter. We take a trip Around the NFL to ponder Tom Brady's future, where Greg Olsen lands and what Miami looks like with Ryan Fitzpatrick. What's the worst case scenario in the Super Bowl for Seahawks fans? Finally, we throw and raise our flags.
In Blue 42 with Michael Bumpus we ask three important football questions, including what it will take for DK Metcalf to be the absolute best in the game?

Did the pass interference rule work? What's the worst case scenario for the Super Bowl, in the eyes of Seahawks fans?
This Super Bowl is completely new and the matchup is refreshing. Hard to believe there's no Brady or Manning AND two QBs in their first Super Bowl. In What to Watch For we examine UW hoops, a cryptic Tom Brady post and the Super Bowl halftime show. John Clayton joins us live from Miami! Russell Wilson says DK Metcalf wants to be the best - what's his ceiling? Russell Wilson continues to be more open than we've seen and heard in the past. Sounds like he wishes Richard Sherman was still here.
Would you rather see the Seahawks make improvements the way the Chiefs have or the way the Niners have? Which side of the ball needs more work? Around the NFL. Then, Ryan Gustufson, XFL Dragons President. Finally, Flag on the Play!
Blue 42 with Brock Huard! Is Schotty creative enough to be successful? Did we make a mountain out of a molehill with what Russell said? Is Russell Wilson's style of leadership changing? The worst map in history was published yesterday and we tell you why we hate it. What makes an insufferable fan? Patrick Mahomes' teammates have fun with his voice and so do we.
Is it better for Seattle to try and change their offense or shore up their defense with assets? What can we learn about that from the two teams in the Super Bowl. In What to Watch For we listen to Mike Hopkins, ponder "The Kraken" as an NHL possibility and wonder what Frank Clark will say when he's mic'd up. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive from Miami and radio row! What does 'let Russ Cook' mean and should the Seahawks do it? Roger Goodell is all of a sudden ready to 'help Antonio Brown get on the right track' - should he really be allowed to use NFL resources?
Is Jimmy Garoppolo disrespected? Paul thinks so - why do people doubt him? In Around the NFL, we dive into the Super Bowl, some Gronk advice and a new GM. Is the Andy Reid/Eagles divorce the best we've seen in sports? Could Russell Wilson do what Patrick Mahomes is doing? Finally, we raise and throw our flags.
In Blue 42 with Michael Bumpus, we ask three important football questions, including just how has Richard Sherman been able to sustain such success on the field? In what might be one and only ever, the divorce between Andy Reid and the Eagles was mutually beneficial. How can we measure his success without a Super Bowl win? Who is winning his breakup with the Seahawks more: Richard Sherman or Frank Clark?
Richard Sherman and Frank Clark are experiencing two different breakups with the Seahawks. Richard deleted Facebook and hit the gym, while Frank is sub-tweeting. In What to Watch For, we look at KJ Costello's visit to UW, preview Mike Hopkins' interview and listen to Shaq's moving words. John Clayton joins us from Miami for his Morning Drive! Is Tyreek Hill the most fascinating player in the Super Bowl? Are the Chiefs being rewarded for taking a chance on him? Should they? Unfortunately, some of the 49ers are fun. Also, we have a new favorite question.
Luke Willson joins us from Miami to give us some Super Week updates. He sets the scene for the week. In Around the NFL, we take a listen to the audio from Kareem Hunt's dash cam video, Robert Saleh's future and Joe Montana's advice. Danny doesn't like what Russell Wilson had to say about needing to add some pieces. Paul doesn't think it's that big a deal, as Russell just wants to win. Finally, we throw and raise our flags.
In Blue 42 with Brock Huard, we ask three important football questions, including whether Russell Wilson was in the wrong for openly stating the Seahawks need to add some pieces. We found the Russell Wilson audio and Danny is not happy with the message it sends. Paul doesn't think he's saying anything that people don't already know. Plus, how much has the Chiefs defense actually improved over the last year?
Russell Wilson was pretty outspoken in an interview we simply can't locate. He talked about adding more to the Seahawks roster, which sounded more urgent than he's ever been. Danny isn't thrilled about it. In What to Watch for we visit Los Angeles, UW hoops and Super Bowl media night. John Clayton joins us live from Miami for his Morning Drive! Is this the year we're finally ok with Sherman being gone? Danny has been waiting to feel that way, but he doesn't see it happening this time around. Danny doesn't hate media day, he hates stories about media day. Paul has had some fun moments.
We listen to some fond memories from Kobe's past and share some of our own.

We continue to remember Kobe. And finally, we raise our flags.

John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive and we take input from listeners on the passing on Kobe Bryant.
Jake Heaps joins us for Blue 42 live from the Pro Bowl. How did the other quarterbacks react to Russell Wilson dominating the skills competition, and is Pete doing a good job selling the organization to the NFL's elite? The running back position in the NFL right now does not hold a lot of a value. Most teams aren't willing to pay top dollar. Should the Seahawks pay Chris Carson? Who are the most surprising Super Bowl teams in history? We discuss that and what sport is the hardest to turn around a team in.
UW blew a double digit lead for the second consecutive game in a loss to Utah. What went wrong and how do they get Jaden McDaniels to stay out of foul trouble?

Jake Heaps joins us from the Pro Bowl in Orlando for Blue 42 and explains his comments that the Seahawks may have squandered some of Russell Wilson's prime.

Plus, Danny has a gift for Michael involving an anniversary of a big moment by one of his favorite NBA players.
Have the Seahawks squandered some of Russell Wilson's prime years? Perhaps there were some areas of weakness the last couple of seasons but he started out with a very strong team around him. In What to Watch for; the Huskies face Utah tonight and the Cougs ride a two game win streak into Colorado, the NFL Pro Bowl skills challenge is at 6 pm tonight, and Zion Williamson made his long awaited debut.Then, John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive, Pete Carroll brings competition Weds to the Pro Bowl and we discuss why Shaquill Griffin's Pro Bowl season should make you feel more optimistic about Tre Flowers.

If you could change one rule in the NFL, what would it be? Finally, we throw and raise our flags!
In Blue 42 with Michael Bumpus we ask three important football questions, including the Seahawks chances at re-signing Jarran Reed. We debate whether playing in a dome an advantage or a disadvantage. There was a basketball fight last night which had us wondering which sports have the best confrontations. Which Seahawk is on the verge of a breakout year?
Did the Seahawks make a mistake by parting ways with Richard Sherman? On the field, probably - in the lockerroom no. In What to Watch For, we examine Bobby Wagner's knee, a basketball brawl and some positive news on Josh Gordon. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive! We get to know new Washington State head coach, Nick Rolovich, as he calls into the show. Derek Jeter was one vote away from getting into the HOF anonymously and for some reason, Danny thinks it's really funny. Should writers really be the moral police for the HOF?
Before we start asking questions about what changes the Seahawks need to make, we have to acknowledge how successful they've been in a time of rebuilding. They do, however, have a fatal flaw and this year, unfortunately, it was the defense. Is it inevitable the defense gets better next year? We take a trip Around the NFL! The Pro Bowl is testing out a new rule for onside kicks and Danny likes it. Paul sees it as the end of the kickoff and he'd miss it. Finally, we throw and raise our flags!
In Blue 42 with Brock Huard, we ask three important football questions, including whether the Seahawks won the Frank Clark and Jadeveon Clowney trades. Wyman didn't agree with Danny that the Seahawks need to modernize their offense, as the Niners are winning with a new take on an old school system. Finally, Paul has a problem: he covets certain 49ers and we ponder whether one in particular might be worth two Seahawks.
The Seahawks need to make changes on defense and Paul wonders if they need fresh blood on the coaching staff. Danny is of the mind that this always has and will be Pete Carroll's defense and if they're going to need a retooling of anything, it's more on the offense. Paul would like to see more out of the personnel they already have, while Danny thinks Pete Carroll is more hesitant to play younger players than he has been in the past. In What to Watch for we learn about Felix Hernandez's new home, Baylor overtaking the Zags and Shaq Griffin's first Pro Bowl trip. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive and Trey Wingo comes on to throw cold water on the Pete Carroll haters
Did the Seahawks belong in the NFC Championship game over the Packers? Who are the top five teams in the league and are the Seahawks among them?

Are you encouraged or discouraged about Seattle's future after watching the games this weekend? Listeners weigh in. Can the Seahawks emulate the Chiefs offense?
It was pretty frustrating to watch the way the Packers lost to the Niners - especially if you think the Seahawks would've done a better job. In What to Watch For, we check in on Husky hoops, MMA and the Super Bowl. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive and we discuss what we might have learned about the Seahawks by watching Championship weekend. Finally, Danny has two things he would change about the NFL if given the chance.
Blue 42 with Michael Bumpus! Who has the best chance to succeed on Championship Weekend? If the Titans win the Super Bowl, will people rethink wanting Pete Carroll to stray from his run-first offense? If the Seahawks offense changes, how will it and how much will it? How egregious was Odell Beckham Junior's 'slap'? He's an idiot...but does he really need to be arrested? How do we qualify the Astros cheating scandal? What is the next step in Russell Wilson's game?
Baseball is on FIRE! This is the scandal that never stops giving. Where does it stack up against other cheating scandals in baseball? Across other sports? In What to Watch for, the Cougs have a lot to celebrate, Husky hoops notches a Pac-12 win and we look ahead to Conference Championship weekend. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive! Will Pete Carroll ever change his offense? How much does he need to? Can't they use the good offense? When it comes to rooting this weekend, we are in it for the pain.
In Blue 42 with Brock Huard we ask three important football questions, including just where the Seahawks need to invest in free agency. In our evaluation of the Seahawks' decade under Pete Carroll, we wonder how people think they need a change at head coach. Listeners weigh in with us. Jessica Mendoza has a surprising opinion regarding Mike Fiers in the Astros cheating scandal.
There is apparently a 'fire Pete Carroll' crowd and we throw cold water over that. Sure, there are things that can change, but it's not the head coach. In What to Watch for we see Steve Gleason receive a well deserved award and take a look at Pac-12 hoops. John Clayton joins us for his Morning Drive!
