ESPN: Earl Thomas is ‘NFL’s best’

A glowing feature on Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas is currently up on ESPN.com. The story, titled “Mind games key to Earl Thomas’ play,” and written by ESPN’s Jeffri Chadiha highlights the versatility of Thomas, and attempts to go inside the mind of Seattle’s star safety.

Here is a quick excerpt:

“It’s not about me being the best safety,” Thomas said. “It’s about me being the best defensive back ever. That’s what I’m after. That’s how you leave a mark on this game. When I think about the Hall of Fame and things like that, that’s why I grind so hard. I know I have a chance to redefine this position.”

Thomas’ dedication is legendary to anybody who’s known him throughout his career. This is a man with such purpose that he used to spend his Sunday mornings playing the organ in church after starring for the Texas Longhorns on Saturdays. That same focus helped make him a leader of a Seattle secondary affectionately known as “The Legion of Boom.” It also should be especially valuable to a team that is hoping for a big second half to the season.”
