The Good That Came Out Of Green Bay Loss: Earl Thomas Is Back
Read more on Earl Thomas’ return………..
“I thought Earl was all over the place,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “I thought he played really well.”
Thomas’ importance to the Seahawks’ defense has always been understood, but it was never more evident than the final two months of last season. He had never missed a game since entering the league in 2010 — until he went down temporarily in Week 11 with a hamstring injury and then for good two weeks later. The Seahawks’ defense was not the same, particularly against the pass.
The stats showed it: The Seahawks allowed 5.96 yards per dropback, 7.01 yards per attempt and a passer rating of 77.8 when Thomas was on the field, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Without him, those numbers were 6.76 yards per dropback, 7.77 YPA and a 100.3 passer rating.
