I am up in Seattle and completely psyched that Earl Thomas got drafted up here so I have a reason to care about the Seahawks. I was reading this article on Seahawks.com, and it mentions that Earl's position coach on the Seahwaks is Jerry Gray...as in Jerry Gray the UT Safety during the defensive powerhouse years - '83 and '84...as in the guy whose interceptions record that Earl broke at Texas (8). That's kind of random, right?
After Texas, Jerry then went on to post a season-high eight interceptions his second year in the Pros ('86). Dude, what if Earl Thomas leads the NFL in single-season interceptions with 9? Do you think Earl would be all like 'Hey Jerry, what else have you accomplished in your life that I can destroy?'
