Earl Thomas Talks “Setting The Standard”

Seahawks All-Pro free safety Earl Thomas’ latest blog on his personal website talks about how the Seahawks are setting the standard for secondaries around the League. He comments on what has made the “Legion of Boom” so successful, noting, “You can’t really copy what we’re doing.”

Thomas goes on to say, “You can try to have the same scheme. But what separates us is our intellect and our personnel. The biggest reason for our success is that we hold each other accountable for every little detail.

I really believe in the idea of iron sharpening iron. We are our brothers’ keepers. That’s a saying we have here. We really hold each other to every little detail whether it’s running for the ball, being on your indicators, doing your job, owning your role, not listening to misleading distractions and just getting to who you are, and just being you.”

Richard Sherman Is Pick For “Face of the Franchise”

NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks identifies the face of the franchise for each team in the NFC West, and All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman takes the title for the Seahawks. On Sherman, Brooks writes: “Sherman’s bluster and ultra-competitive personality might turn off some observers, but the fourth-year pro has quickly become one of the most disruptive defenders in the NFL. Sherman led the league with eight interceptions in 2013 and has snagged 20 picks in three seasons. Those are remarkable numbers for a bump-and-run corner playing with little safety help over the top. Sure, there have been detractors, including Patrick Peterson, who have questioned whether Sherman is truly a premier cover corner, but it’s hard to dispute his production and the respect opponents show him by avoiding targets on his side. With that in mind, it’s apparent that Sherman and the “Legion of Boom” embody the culturePete Carroll has created in the Pacific Northwest.”

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson earns a “next in line” mention from Brooks as the pick to take the torch from Sherman down the line: “Wilson’s numbers aren’t on par with some of his peers, but there is no doubt about his status as the Seahawks’ franchise quarterback after guiding the team to a title in his second season. The diminutive playmaker sports an impressive career record as a starter (24-8) and has already claimed four playoff wins in five tries. Although his critics point out that he has just two 300-yard games in his career, the Seahawksare built to win on the strength of their defense and punishing running game. Thus, Wilson’s superb game management skills and leadership ability outweigh his statistical output in the Seahawks’ game plan. Given Wilson’s success and overall performance, the Seahawks have the right leader in place to keep the team in the title hunt for the next few seasons.”

Brooks tabs St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick as the face of Seattle’s division rivals.

via Monday Round-Up: Earl Thomas sets the standard; Richard Sherman is face of the franchise.
