Seahawks thankful for gifts from the Patriots, Lions, and Texans
Seahawks appreciate sweet defensive presents
Well, the Seahawks certainly figured out how to use their lovely gift from the Lions. Diggs has been a godsend for the Hawks defense. As our own Geoff Shull wrote, he’s been the unsung hero of the return of a dominating Hawks defense. There’s a clear correlation between the arrival of Quandre Diggs to the lineup and the return of what finally looks like the Legion of Boom 2.0. Yeah, I know correlation isn’t causation, I took statistics too. I just know Diggs is causing a lot of headaches for opposing offenses, and that’s all the correlation I need. It’s worth mentioning Detroit’s earlier gift of Ziggy Ansah. It may have taken him eleven games, but he definitely showed up when the Hawks had to play without the nicest gift of all.
Our final gift was almost certainly the biggest of all. Jadeveon Clowney was positively without a doubt the biggest and baddest of all the gifts the Seahawks received. We’ve written extensively about how generous the Texans were to send Mr. Clowney our way. I mean, Seattle got a defensive beast for two backups and a third-round pick. And Houston is paying half of his salary, too. There is zero doubt the addition of Clowney absolutely made the Hawks contenders this year. Now, whether the Hawks can keep him in the future is another discussion entirely. But for now, we can be grateful he’s on the team at all.
As 12s we certainly have a lot to be thankful for. We got some amazing players this season, most of them for what you’d spend on all the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner at Whole Foods. We have a team that plays their heart out every time and shows amazing heart off the field as well. Yessir, we all saw what you did, Bobby Wagner. More for than their excellent play on the field, the Seahawks stand out as excellent human beings. For that, we’re truly grateful.
