The Seahawks were liquified by the Rams yesterday, surrendering 42 points and 352 total yards. They had a particularly tough time stopping Todd Gurley, who went for 144 yards and three touchdowns in the first half. The usually solid Seahawks defense was made porous by injuries, and wasn’t helped by star linebacker Bobby Wagner attempting to play with a bum hamstring.


Wagner only lasted until the third quarter, and after the game safety Earl Thomas suggested that he shouldn’t have played at all. “In my personal opinion, I don’t think [Wagner] should have played,” he said to reporters after the game. “The backups would have did just as good.” Thomas added that Wagner’s speed was noticeably diminished during the game, and that he waited too long to take himself out.

Word of this got to Wagner, and instead of talking to Thomas in private, he fired off this since-deleted tweet:

Well, at least he was nice enough to wish continued balling upon his teammate.
