An additional bright spot to the Seattle Defense this year has been rookie Earl Thomas. He has had 4 interceptions so far, and a few chances to collect a few more.
Earl was honored today by Peter King of Sports Illustrated for the Mid-Season All Pro Team. He has been victimized a few times this year though so he does have much to learn. Seattle is tied for first place in the league with 12, 30+ yard catches.
Earl should get better as time goes by and may even head to the Pro-Bowl this year if he continues with his interception streak.
