Art Thiel and Doug Farrar

Sportspress Northwest’s Art Thiel and Doug Farrar have a video discussion about the epic battle for NFC West, ahem, supremacy Sunday that has drawn the stare of NBC and the perverse curiosity of handfuls of others

The game for the entire marble of the NFC West is Sunday, pitting the resistible St. Louis Rams against the moveable Seattle Seahawks at Qwest Field.

Amazingly, the Rams are led by a rookie quarterback, Sam Bradford, who has more regulation game experience than the Seahawks’ starting quarterback, five-year veteran Charlie Whitehurst. More amazingly, the Rams on Oct. 3 beat the Seahawks 20-3 in St. Louis when Seattle had its regular quarterback, Matt Hasselbeck.

Not only has this clash of the NFL’s tiniest titans drawn NBC to Seattle for its Sunday night prime-time game, Sportspress¬† Northwest’s Seahawks beat writer Doug Farrar and columnist Art Thiel were at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton Wednesday for a look at practice and a conversation about the semi-wonder of it all for Five Minutes With.
