I have long argued that Earl Thomas is the best player on the Seahawks. He was the highest drafted player on the team and has played at an All-Pro level almost immediately. It’ll be interesting to see if Russell Wilson can pick up the slack now that he’s healthier. The improvement, definitely, needs to come from the offense because there is not much room for improvement from the defense, especially without Earl. They are lucky that the NFC West and whole NFC is down this year.
