Manage episode 272219822 series 2787748
Russell and Jeff start off the show by talking about the Seahawks’ dominant win in Atlanta over the Falcons this past weekend. Russell was extremely efficient; throwing four touchdowns and only four incomplete passes! He breaks down his big fourth-down touchdown throw to D.K. Metcalf, and how the Falcons and Seahawks decided to take a knee during the opening kickoff to bring attention to social injustices.
Next, John David Washington, the star of Christopher Nolan’s movie ‘Tenet’ joins the show! Before John David was a star on the big screen, he played football at Morehouse College, and with the St. Louis Rams for one season. Recently, he starred in Spike Lee’s Oscar nominated ‘BlacKkKlansman’ and HBO’s hit television show ‘Ballers’.
Russell and John David discuss JD’s football school records at Morehouse College, who he modeled his game after, and when the legendary Jim Brown came to his football game. They then transition to talking about their mothers; from their influence early on, to their continued guidance as an adult. John David talks about his first conversation with Christopher Nolan, trying to decipher the script, and all of the work that went into the film.
Lastly, Russell and Jeff preview the Seahawks’ upcoming opponent – Cam Newton and the New England Patriots.
