The Seahawks Are Unraveling And Now They’re Publicly Talking Sh*t About Each Other
The Seattle Seahawks are in trouble. Just one week after the Jaguars beat them up, the Seahawks got decimated to the Los Angeles Rams by 35 points at home, the worst loss of the Pete Carroll era and the worst home loss since week 1 of the 1997 season.
Now with the playoffs a pipe dream, the 8-6 Seahawks are beginning to implode. It started last week after the Jags loss when Seattle players got in an end-of-game brouhaha with the Jags before defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson nearly tried to fight a fan in the stands.
This week, things unraveled even more when Seahawks stars Earl Thomas and Bobby Wagner publicly chirped each other on Twitter. The feud began when Thomas told reporters after the game that Wagner should not have played, as he was still recovering from an injured hamstring. Wagner, who did not practice all week, finished the game with seven tackles.
“To be totally honest, I think you have to give your hats off to Wags and a couple guys that played,” Thomas told The Seattle Times, “but my personal opinion, I don’t think they should have played. The backups would have did just as good.”
It didn’t take long for the 3-time Pro Bowler to respond. Wagner tweeted, and then deleted, the below.
“E keep my name out yo mouth. Stop being jealous of other people success. I still hope you keep balling bro.”
Controversy is no stranger to this Seahawks team, and when you add 42 points against and 352 yards coupled with an opposing running back (Todd Gurley) running for 144 yards and three touchdowns IN THE FIRST HALF, things are bound to boil over.
