  • Was lights out yesterday!

    He played with a fire that I haven't seen him play with, possibly ever, as a Seahawk. There were a few times where he came flying in hard on a run blitz and took down AP before he could get going. He also NEARLY had an amazing interception that would've thrown us into a frenzy. All in all he played a very impressive game.

    It seemed like he definitely stepped up to help lead this football team on defense. Browner and Sherman were there to answer the call as well.

    Here's to Earl Thomas showin em how it's done! :thirishdrinkers:

  • I noticed that as well. He was willing that team. My guess is the team needs a lil boost because of fatigue. They need their bye.

  • i love ET, probably my favorite player on the team because of his intensity, and just raw talent.. but he is missing a lot of sure picks that are hitting him right in the hands, if i'm not mistaken that was the 4th he's dropped.. not sure what's going on with this dudes hands, none of these would have been tough catches.. don't ever remember him having this bad of a season dropping anything... very strange to me, maybe just chalk it up to , just not having a good seaon, (catching the ball wise) , i don't know????????? but at leat he's in position to break up the play..

    That was not a sure pick yesterday. He went up all the way to try to snag it. Very difficult for any player to make that play.

  • Not just Thomas, the entire defensive backfield was lights out.

    I don't get on Thomas for dropping picks...........he gets his hands on balls no other safety even comes close to.

    Kind of like an excellent shortstop in baseball. Sure, they'll make more errors (in this case drop more picks) but that's due to the fact that they get to balls that most others wouldn't, giving them more opportunity for error.

    Regardless I don't think I'd qualify the one yesterday as a dropped pick. That would've been sick had he landed it. Not many guys in this league make that interception that he had at Detroit. He came out of nowhere and just flew!

    Funny you mention this, cuz I always joke with my son aobut him having stone hands. But that's why he's a DB, if he had magnet hands he'd be a WR.

    He played well but certainly not lights out. He missed a key tackle on AP and dropped a potential pick.

  • His ankle tackle of Peterson in the 2nd half was huge. Otherwise that was a TD for sure. But he needs to start catching these potential interceptions. He has Ed Reed like abilities, but the difference is that Reed makes those catches.

    Yes, but his Tweet with Doc quoted above tells me he knows he felt he should have snagged that.

    He's dropped a lot of potential picks this season, there's no question. Some of them would have been towards the "great catch" side of things (I agree with you - the one yesterday was not an easy pick).

    I sense that he will start coming up with some more.

    disagree, perfectly timed jump, ball hit him square in the hands, routine? no. tough catch? no. look, all these guys are pro's!!!! they are playing skilled positions for a reason... they made it to the NFL because they were stars at every level leading up to the NFL... they are getting paid big dollars to make those plays.. sick of these excuses, ah the pass was wobbly, he's a rookie, F that they're pro's and skill players, catch the F'n ball.... but like i stated, he's just having an off year ( catching the ball wise ) stop making excuses for these guys...

    I was thinking both of these. Still one of the top safties in the league, but there was room fo improvement yesterday. He knows it. He's a competitor. He'll keep getting it done.

    What do you expect him to say? Any catch that has you going up and catching it over the shoulder is difficult.

    I very much liked the fire , He tackled Adrian Peterson 1 vs 1 , something the other ten guys on our team had to see. because nobody else did it yesterday.

    I don't "expect" him to say anything....and that doesn't fit here. He wouldn't create a Tweet about it if he felt otherwise.

    :shock:

    We get you think he can do no wrong. As I said, it would have been a great pick. That doesn't answer for all the other ones he's dropped this season. He's a great player, but he has missed a lot of picks this season....it's ok.

  • ET has been my favorite player since he came in from Texas. I really hope this young man plays his entire career here!


    Also, he's so awkwardly funny on Real Rob, adds a nice dynamic to the personality of the team off field.


    PS - Put in Flynn, dude catches anything...anytime...anywhere. If not that head will swat everything else.

  • My favorite play from Thomas was one that Tim Ryan called incorrectly. It was the deep pass that Ponder took a shot on and Earl flashed back into the play, while Ryan was saying that Ponder should have taken the throw to the intermediate middle because he was throwing deep into double coverage. Watching the replay, Thomas was actually closer to the intermediate middle receiver than the deep guy before Ponder committed to throw deep. As soon as Ponder wound up to go deep, Thomas turned and sprinted back into the play. It was ridiculously impressive closing speed from Thomas.

    But yes - he was very active.

    If he caught them all I'm pretty sure he'd have 5. I might be missing one so it might be 6 too. He's got to make those.
