Dick is out just a few more days. Today, Mike Gastineau sits in with Softy after last night's Rolling Stones show. Pro Football Focus has expanded their reach, now looking at college football, and they've ranked Jacob Eason as the fifth best quarterback in the Pac-12, 36th in the country. It's gotten a lot of Dawg fans upset, but these rankings don't mean much, and he's got plenty of time to prove them wrong. It's an interesting time in Seattle as we hype up two players we haven't even seen yet; Jacob Eason for the Dawgs, and D. K. Metcalf for the Hawks. The difference is, Eason will be under the spotlight constantly as he'll be taking every snap for the Dawgs most likely. Metcalf will be able to fade into the background a little easier if he doesn't meet expectations. Is Mariners apathy at an all-time low? No one is talking about this team right now. They're arguably performing even worse than expected, and the slight glimmer of hope to start the season only raised expectations. On the other hand, the future is coming. We can see what they've got planned by looking at the minor leagues, and for some, that might be what's keeping hope alive.
