Monday Round-Up: Media Reactions After Seahawks' Week 8 Win Over The 49ers

Local and national media had plenty to say after the Seahawks’ 37-27 victory over the rival 49ers.


Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Monday, Nov. 2 – after another win by your Seattle Seahawks.

What's Being Said: Seahawks 37, 49ers 27

The Seahawks got back in the win column on Sunday after suffering their first loss of the season last week. Behind another flawless performance from Russell Wilson, Seattle is 6-1 on the season and in control of the NFC West. Russ finished 27 of 37 for 261 yards and four touchdowns. Two of those scores went to DK Metcalf, who added 12 receptions for 161 yards. On defense, Bobby Wagner led the way with two sacks and four QB hits.

Here's a look at what the media are saying after the game:

America Uses DK Metcalf's Hustle As Teaching Moment

Last week against the Cardinals, DK Metcalf had one of the most impressive tackles you'll ever see. Running the length of the field, DK chased down Budda Baker and saved a would-be touchdown.

After watching the play, NBC Sports' Peter King asked his Twitter followers if anyone used the play as a teaching moment to never give up.

You can read here all of the stories of how parents, coaches and teachers across the country used the play as inspiration. My favorite comes from Mike Welsch, a father who lives in West Des Moines, Iowa.

"I showed it to my daughters, 8 and 5, Monday morning. Their reaction was awe at first to DK's physical abilities and speed. Then my wife, an elementary school guidance counselor, quickly joined me in helping them with the message behind just the play itself. As we talked through the mindset behind not giving up and how that rubs off on your friends and teammates I think they understood that what he did meant more than the outcome of the play. My oldest, Allison, said that even if he didn't catch him, his teammates would be proud of his effort and would want to keep him on their team."

Even in a tough moment following an interception, it's pretty cool that Metcalf was able to turn on the jets and inspire people across the world.

Social Post Of The Day

Now that the NBA season is over, LeBron James has plenty of time to watch the NFL. Apparently, he's been keeping an eye on second-year star DK Metcalf.
