So wie es aussieht muss sich die komplette ''Legion of Boom'' aufg.
Legion Of Boom Navigation menu VideoThe Legion of Boom
The coach explained that Sherman had played quite well. Sherman, strong safety Kam Chancellor and free safety Earl Thomas would ultimately start 81 regular-season games together, as many as any three players in the same secondary over the past quarter-century.
That defeat to the Bengals remains the only time Seattle lost by more than seven points with those three in the starting lineup together Cincy scored twice on returns.
The Legion of Boom ceased operations last season when injuries precipitated Sherman's release and Chancellor's pending retirement.
The season-ending leg injury Thomas suffered Sunday looks like the finishing blow, as Thomas appears likely to depart once his contract expires in March.
Few get to go out like John Elway did, hoisting the Lombardi Trophy following his final game with the only team he knew. Sherman departed Seattle accusing management of losing its way.
Minutes after Thomas' tibia fractured Sunday, he raised a middle finger toward the Seattle sideline in anger over his contract. Chancellor departed with grace following a neck injury, the only one of the three to receive a third contract from the team.
He raised the Seahawks' 12th Man flag for what was probably Thomas' final home game, a Week 3 victory over Dallas featuring two Thomas interceptions.
I don't know what to make of it. Having all three charter members of the LOB meet their demise as Seahawks in the same Arizona stadium within a calendar year was a lot for Seattle's defensive architect to process.
For context, we compare this iconic trio of defensive backs to others with similar staying power over the past four decades, and why it's unlikely we'll see a similar group in the years ahead.
No other secondary trio has started more games together in the game schedule era dating to , according to Elias Sports Bureau research.
They did it with the Philadelphia Eagles from These DB trios with the most staying power since combined for 41 Pro Bowl appearances, 17 first-team All-Pro selections and interceptions during the seasons in which they started together.
The Legion of Boom stacks up well against these other enduring secondaries, with strong competition from the Chiefs trio.
Thomas, Sherman and Chancellor combined for 14 Pro Bowls and six first-team All-Pro selections during their run as starters together.
Both figures rank No. Pro Football Reference developed Approximate Value to create a single number representing quality of player contributions based on a mix of team and individual accomplishments.
Games played, starts, Pro Bowls, All-Pro selections and team success all play roles in the equation. These four secondaries stacked up closely when using Approximate Value.
I also calculated their AV totals as a percentage of the total AV for the three highest-rated DBs in the league regardless of team over the years in question.
Chancellor and Sherman were each fifth-round picks. Earl Thomas, on the other hand, was a first-round pick in Getting three defensive superstars like this in two drafts is unheard of regardless of their position, and the Seahawks made the most of it.
Behind the Legion of Boom, the Seahawks made it to two-straight Super Bowls in and , winning the first one before losing heartbreakingly in the second Super Bowl.
The Legion of Boom was known around the league for its relentless defense. Nobody was safe from the mayhem they caused. Never one to stay silent for long, Sherman spoke about what drove the historic defense in They said nobody cares about defense anymore.
But we wanted to cement our legacy as one of the best defenses to ever play in the NFL, and we did that. Denver never had a chance to beat Seattle because of those 5 and 7 yard shimmy routes Manning throws.
Denver was physically whipped all over the field all day long. Leave the game alone the 5 yard rule messed it up, Seattle just went and got the players to shut teams down.
To say this team is playing illegal is B…s.. Oh, so the Seahawks won the Superbowl by holding Broncos receivers?
Harbs will have to dance alot better on the sidelines to distract the refs from his boys pulling that stunt.
This is what the league really needs — to make it easier to throw the football! Smart move by the Seahawks — blatant and repeated defensive holding — daring the refs to flag them.
Why not? If the calls went against them, they could adjust; they didnt, so they kept on doing it all the way to a dominant superbowl win.
Seattle was in the playoffs, again. We remember. Im the best corner in the game! Dont you ever open up yo mouth about the best!
Who was talking about you? If there is, then throw the flag. You just proved your dont watch any tape. You are regurgitating an angry sports writer from NY.
He wrote the article after the shutout the seahawks put on NY. He made up everything outta frustration and you guys ran with it.
You ran with is so hard its insulting. You have convinced yourself that they really hold every down. When they hold no more then any other team.
Either give me some facts, actual data, or just stop spewing this regurgitated nonsense. The Legion of Boom rule…. Mike Pereira even said, not a single play was shown of Seattle holding.
Get over yourself. Let the butt hurt flow through you. The Hawks are primed for an excellent What the pats did was different, they would mug a guy and it would lead to an interception.
It sucks. May as well just be flag football with the first to being the winner. Maybe Peyton Manning ought to be taking tips from him.
Its a changing game, I get that. This is about points. Points are sexy. Points are exciting. Points bring in more viewers.
More viewers bring in more revenues. Saw enough of the fake flopping during World Cup…. Seahawk fans are so proud of their 12 and claim to be the best fans in the NFL…bwahahaha Seattle has consistently been voted one of Americas worst sports towns and were never more popular than 28th untill 2 years ago….
I have to agree with the people on here saying there were no Seahawk fans before …I know someone personally that prior to said he was a Seahawks fan….
Seadderal Secondary has been muggin, grabbing, holding and impeding receivers for years. Just ;ook at the explosion in the popularity of soccer.
Are they scoring more goals??? If it gets even worse than it already is not only will the defenses will become obsolete but the games will start to become unwatchable.
There was a time when Kam Chancellor came close to handing over his yearly salary in penalties. Finally, Florio is a 49er fan.
Every game there was Sherman, Thomas, or some other DB hanging on to guys 10 yards down the field.
Last I checked the rule book says no contact after 5 yards and if there is its a penalty plain and simple.
There were to many games where they got away with it. If its illegal every official should have a flag on the field. Call it twenty times in a row if you have to until its known that its a penalty and it will be called.
Sherman will bump guys hard in the 5 yard buffer and that is still going to be legal. Every time Peyton loses a big game, the rule changes come down to make defenses even more toothless.
This rule is a double edged sword. One thing people need to remember is that Seattle now has two of the fastest recievers in the entire league and Wilson throws a nice deep ball.
They also had 10 defensive holding calls. What a lot of people are overlooking is that a lot of these more favorable rules for the offense actually got installed after the Ravens won their first Superbowl essentially off of a superb defense, a great ground and pound running game, and one of the best kickers ever to play the game of football.
The NFL wants a pretty, pass happy, huge point total game. I like to watch football too, played within the rules.
You are allowed to touch a receiver within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage. After that it is a penalty. On the other hand it is said rather often that officials could call holding on the offensive line on almost every single play.
Jordan usually got an extra step or so when driving to the basket. Should have been traveling. Same thing with calling fouls on a star player.
If you call the penalty enough it might be effective enough to make the issue solve itself. Perhaps then the refs can revert back to only really throwing the flag on the most blatant infractions.
Receivers always spin around and ask for flags on most passing routes, penalize them for flagrante and excessive gripes after the play if no penalty was assessed.
Seems every pass play has this ridiculous behavior. The Seahawks play a physical brand of football where they hit simultaneously when the ball arrives.
And the NFL goes and at every turn tries to legislate physicality out of football. All this does is make me root for the Seahawks or any other physical style of football team even more.
This is platinum. One of my favorite things about this past SB besides watching a great defense and tough football dominate was the thought of NaPolian having apoplexy somewhere watching his poor little peytie poo having to deal with a physical defense.
So naturally this is happening. One of my favorite things about Pereira is that he has always hated the PI rule. Where a single error or strategic mistake could be the tide turner.
Quality is always better than quantity to me. Seattle has been given too much of a home field advantage or should I say crowd intimidation.
A typical Seahawk tailgate party consists of a guy who looks like Rick Moranis with a lime green spiked mullet and his face painted a lady that looks like Martha Stewart also wearing a green spiked mullet with green beads all over her neck..
They have the back of the ol Suburu Outback open with 12 flags all over the thing and theyre dining on dried oatmeal.. They will all also be wearing neon green hiking boots..
Must be some fashion trend. The name "Legion of Boom" was suggested to the show by fans on Twitter and noting the way the secondary "brings the boom".
The unit's aggressive nature was notable in an era where the NFL had placed particular emphasis on player safety. Kris Richard , who served as defensive backs coach from to and as defensive coordinator from to , helped build the Legion of Boom into a unit that hit hard while staying within the rules.
During practice, the receivers run routes with shields strapped to their chests that ran from neck to mid-thigh, and Richard taught the defensive backs to keep their hits within that area in order to limit penalties for blows to the head.
Bleacher Report described the Legion of Boom as a monument both to Richard and head coach Pete Carroll , who was a safety himself in his playing days and a defensive backs coach in his early coaching career.
Over seven seasons, the Legion of Boom's core had consisted of Sherman, Thomas and Chancellor, with the comings and goings of the cornerback opposite Sherman.
They also became the first team to ever score with a safety, interception return for a touchdown and kickoff return for a touchdown in a Super Bowl.
They led the game for 59 minutes, 48 seconds, which is the longest lead in Super Bowl history. It was the 3rd largest point difference in a Super Bowl 35 points which was just one point less than the lead the Chicago Bears finished with in Super Bowl XX.
The season following the Seahawks' first Super Bowl victory, they made it back to Super Bowl XLIX but lost to the New England Patriots by four points when Patriots' rookie cornerback Malcolm Butler intercepted the ball with the Seahawks one yard from scoring the go-ahead touchdown and only 20 seconds remaining in the game.
Former LOB starter Brandon Browner was playing for the opposing New England Patriots, and was instrumental in jamming up the play and forcing the interception.
Sherman, Thomas and Chancellor were all plagued by injuries before and during the game. Griffin and McDougald would prove to be very important players for the Seahawks defense who were without Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor.
The other defensive backs on the Seahawks roster are also considered members of the Legion of Boom. Particularly following the suspensions of Brandon Browner in four games  and suspended indefinitely, but reinstated March 4, , as well of that of Sherman which he successfully appealed in December , the term "Legion of Boom" has encompassed more than just the four original starters.
After the season, Richard Sherman expressed his approval of two new Legion of Boom members:  rookie Tye Smith , and veteran Cary Williams who was subsequently released by the Seahawks after starting 10 games in the season.
DeShawn Shead emerged as the starter at right cornerback. Terrell advanced to full-time starter at free safety after Earl Thomas suffered a broken leg during a game.
The season saw the emergence of rookie safety tandem Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor who were drafted in the first and fifth rounds respectively.
Thomas would lead the team in interceptions with five. The following week they would go on to lose on the road to the Chicago Bears.
Thomas also earned AP All-Pro honors. Browner tied for fourth in the NFL with six interceptions. Sherman finished second in the league with eight interceptions, despite this he was snubbed from the Pro Bowl.
The team would also go undefeated at home for the third time in franchise history. The Legion of Boom had a banner year in In the regular season, they allowed the fewest passing yards and passing touchdowns in the league  while anchoring the league's best passing defense as well as overall defense.
Sherman finished first in the league with eight interceptions. In their rout of the Denver Broncos , they held Peyton Manning and the record-setting Broncos offense to only eight points, intercepting Manning twice, forcing two fumbles, and playing a major part in securing the first Super Bowl championship in franchise history.
In a Week 10 revenge game against the Atlanta Falcons , Seattle allowed 10 points and yards in a 33—10 win. Thurmond would force and recover a fumble in the win.
Week 11 brought the Minnesota Vikings to Seattle, who managed yards and 20 points, but turned it over 4 times.
Thurmond returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown in the 41—20 win. In Week 13, in a Monday Night Football game against the New Orleans Saints , the Seahawks faced off against the eventual 2 ranked passing attack in the league.
They held the Saints to yards in a 34—7 blowout. It was one of the best games of the season for the Legion of Boom, the Giants managing just yards of offense and turning it over 5 times.
Byron Maxwell had two interceptions, as did Richard Sherman. Sherman also tipped a pass to Earl Thomas for an interception. Sherman also recovered a fumble.
The next week, Seattle kept the Arizona Cardinals to total yards and 17 points, forcing 4 turnovers.
Sherman had two more interceptions and Chancellor added another. However, the Seahawks would fall 17—10, a late 31—yard touchdown pass from Carson Palmer to Michael Floyd being the difference.
They would close the regular season strong, beating the St. Louis Rams 27—9 and allowing total yards.
Byron Maxwell would add an interception and the Rams would not score a touchdown until remained in the game, with the game already decided.
In the divisional round, a rematch with the New Orleans Saints , the Saints did not score until early in the 4th quarter, although a late flurry got them 15 points and offensive yards.
Of note was the Seahawks holding tight end Jimmy Graham to a single catch for 8 yards. The Seahawks would win 23—Legion of Boom is the third studio album by American electronic music duo The Crystal Method, released on January 13, by V2 Records. The album features contributions from Milla Jovovich and Kyuss lead singer John Garcia, and also contains guitar riffs courtesy of Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland and vocal talents by beatboxer Rahzel. Its title is likely a reference to the supervillain team Legion of Doom. k Followers, 5, Following, 5, Posts - See Instagram photos and videos from 1st Phorm "LEGION OF BOOM" (@1stphorm). The “Legion of Boom” had gone bust. Carroll, knowing how important the group is to the success of the defense, set about rebuilding the unit. For much of the s, the Seattle Seahawks defensive core was notorious for giving opponents fits on the football field. This ‘ Legion of Boom,’ which consisted of Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, and Kam Chancellor, was responsible for many of the team’s most memorable victories. Like all great sports pairings, however, this trio eventually split up, and the story behind it shows exactly why this had to happen. The Legion of Boom (LOB) was the Seattle Seahawks' secondary during its rise to prominence in the s. The original group that was nicknamed the Legion of Boom consisted of the main starters in the Seahawks defensive backfield, or secondary (the cornerback and safety positions): Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Brandon Browner, Walter Thurmond and Byron Maxwell.
