The Fs

Earl Thomas

Thomas held out and was a distraction during the preseason. He decided not to show up and be a good teammate. Seattle was still going to pay him to do his job if he did show up but he didn’t so he lost a lot of money.

Worse, the Seahawks are a young team and have a lot of members of the secondary, like Tedric Thompson, who could have learned from Thomas. But Thomas chose himself over the team.

Sure, he came back and had an electric game against the Cowboys but he also missed tackles against the Broncos and Bears. He was rusty, then good and then got injured. And the lasting memory of his final moments wearing a Seahawks uniform will be of him being carted off the field flipping off the team.

Thomas will definitely not be returning to play football with Seattle and he has himself to blame for a lot of that.

Chances Thomas returns to Seahawks: Zero percent

Dion Jordan

Seattle needed a good season from Jordan. So far what they have gotten is half-a-sack. Jordan is always questionable as to whether he will play in a game or not. But he has shown up in eight of Seattle’s 11 games. Jordan just hasn’t been good this year.

The Seahawks have one very good defensive end, Frank Clark. They were hoping Jordan could disrupt from the other side of Clark it hasn’t happened. Besides that half-sack, Jordan has three quarterback hits and just one tackle for loss.

Chances Jordan returns to Seahawks: 25 percent
