Wyman’s Football 101: One play that shows Seahawks’ Earl Thomas is back
Earl Thomas, who saw his 2016 season cut short with a broken leg, is back and at full speed, according to 710 ESPN Seattle’s Dave Wyman.
It’s undoubtedly been a long journey for Thomas, who briefly worried his career was over and contemplated retirement after the injury. To the relief of Seahawks fans, Thomas has returned for the 2017 season.
In the video above, Wyman takes a look at how Thomas used his speed – and more importantly, his instinct – to make a stop on one particular third-and-3 play for the Seahawks’ preseason win last week over the Vikings. It’s something Wyman is not only glad to see but believes will make receivers think twice about coming across the middle. For football beginners, Wyman also quickly breaks down a what Cover-1 scheme is.
