Earl Thomas NFC defensive player of the week

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • Great game Earl, and congrats on the honors. So much for those that thought you looked "slow" early in the year. :2thumbs:

    In the NFC, Earl Thomas picked up Defensive Player of the Week honors for his huge game in the Seahawks' 16-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Arguably the league's top safety piled up seven tackles, an interception and forced a fumble on Todd Gurley at the goal line that turned a touchdown into a touchback.

  • Thomas played lights out and has been having a really good season. This defense is on a completely different level when he's on the field

    Agree. And if Thomas doesn't make that play 1 inch before the foot is out of bounds, things would look very different for this team. Earl also helped bring 2 weeks "peace" to this site. 8)

    I'm not so sure about peace, but at least a slight decrease in negativity perhaps :irishdrinkers:

  • Yes ETIII is what makes this defense work. Between his energy, intensity, speed and playmaking ability, it all works to make him the best safety in the game. He's reminding everyone this year that he's still the gold standard.

    Glad he got the award this week. Hope we get a few more of these in coming weeks.

  • Earl definitely deserved it but I bet Richardson was a close 2nd in the voting.

    Most of us agree that it was a "game changer" play........imagine us with a record of 2-3?? Where would this team be without Earl?

  • Rightfully so. Without his chopped ball to the pylon, this game probably is much different.

  • Watching ET on a run play is amazing. 21 players all moving and Earl is like a missile from his FS position navigating through traffic, on a direct line to the ball handler, at full speed. He has an innate ability to know where every person will be at every instant and runs on a line to avoid everyone else until he collides with the runner.

  • Earl deserves the honor, IMO he's had the best start to a season in his professional career. He just looks like he's hit his prime physically, and more importantly, mentally. Pretty impressive given how his season ended last year.

  • I heard a pretty sad fact about Earl, the LOB and the defensive player of the week award. Since Pete has been here, the LOB has won the award 7 times. 4 Sherman, 2 Kam, and that was the very first time in 7 years Earl won it. :x

    I don't know who votes / decides this, but that sounds like a load of crap to me.

    I heard that on KJR and couldn't believe it. Earl in my opinion is the best of the bunch.

    Thomas turned Gurley into Girlie.... it was also refreshing to watch the rest of the Seahawks Defense put the cork in his ass for the rest of that game.
    Maybe TG will moll it over in his mind to NOT shoot his pregame taunts at the Seahawks Run Defense again, eh? :stirthepot:
    The Rams were counting on Gurley to run all over the Seahawks, like he did in all the games leading up to that point.
    Goff wasn't near as affective without TG......Thank You ET.

  • He's the best safety in the NFL. Only other comparable was Ed Reed and he's a lock into the HOF as well. Shame he doesn't get the love he deserves.

  • WELL DONE EARL!!!!!!! well deserved!

    JUST IN CASE YOU EVER READ THESE PAGES: I want you to know how much you mean to me and my football family? You explemify all the attributes that a HALL OF FAME Safety should have- no man walks in your shoes ET, I was so amazed to see you work yhour way back from last years terrible injury. I know what you are thinking: IF you are to finish, it will be YOUR way as the ONLY way, and that would be AFTER a Super Bowl winning party!!!!! It should be your third.

    Please do it YOUR way Earl, to get us where we need to be!!!!

    We love and respect you Earl!

  • There were doubts last year, among the league, that he was still the best FS in football, but there really isn't any doubt anymore. ET's knack for laying the hits/jarring the ball loose at critical moments of a game is clutch.
