Last year following Seattle’s season-saving victory over the Dallas Cowboys, the Seahawks safety attempted to enter the Cowboys locker room and told Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, “If y’all have the chance, come get me.”
Thomas clarified the intentions of his visit to reporters soon after.
“I’ve always been a Cowboys fan growing up. The biggest thing when I said ‘come get me,’ I didn’t literally mean, ‘come get me now,'” Thomas explained to reporters. “I’m still in the prime of my career, I still want to be here. But when Seattle kicks me to the curb, please, the Cowboys, come get me. You know? This is the place where I want to be when they kick me to the curb. So that’s what I meant by. People take me too serious. That’s just who I am.”
This year was time for revenge as Earl Thomas, who is still a Seahawk… picked off Dak Prescott 2 times to help Seattle seal a 24-13 victory.
