Legion Of Boom Pro Bowls and first-team All-Pro selections VideoHere comes the Legion of Boom 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. 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 (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. 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.
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. Hard to believe that grabbing jerseys and throwing players down merits a flag being thrown.
Seattle is a joke. Except Russel Wilson and Marshawn Lynch, those guys are legit. The way the game was being officiated the receivers were getting handled and could do nothing about it really.
So the options were either focus on defensive PI or allow holding. An awful lot of smack talk on here. In the end we all know that if the NFL enforces the pass interference rules it will hurt a lot of teams but probably none more than Seattle.
Maybe Manning should ask Elway to get him some people who can run fast. Tbey should just go ahead and eliminate the 5 yard rule, and say no contact at all.
Fist team to wins. Shame on the NFL but the Raiders fans already know about the refs bias calls. The way I read this, they just want to reinforce the existing rules.
Frankly I am sick of Seattle fans like everybody but come on guys. Who cares if they are bandwagon fans. They have been filling their stadium for last years.
Its not like they just started to follow the team recently. Give them credit, they are very passionate fans not to mention loudest fans.
Mike Pereira, former chief of officials, said that when they were going over what to call on the penalties, NONE were Seahawks plays.
Just saying. Literally makes the speaker come across like a taunting infant. In reality, it just makes everything sweeter because I get to watch a grown man literally turn into a toddler in front of my eyes — which is hilarious.
Without the holding and illegal contact, it will be interesting to see how good they really are. So they repeatedly broke a rule after being told to stop.
Where is the mass hysteria crying for Congressional hearings? Got it. Man up and play through it. There has been too many rule changes to help the offense.
Watching a defense dominate is fun, too. You guys are going to real disappointed this year if your counting on this silly emphasis on defensive holding and pass interference keeping the Seahawks from repeating as Superbowl champioins.
They hit very hard and tackle exceptionally well. The Broncos made their living last year and broke all kinds of passing records because of YAC.
Do you know what that is? In the Superbowl they still caught quite a few passes, but their YAC was just about zero.
And that will not change. I remember that the Hawks secondary and coaches figured they would get 5 or less calls a game even if they did it on every passing play.
It was smart for Seattle to do it and it did help. They still have a secondary that can cover without it i. Fore once literally maybe the first time ever , I agree with Florio.
Anyone who knows anything about football knows that the Seahawks routinely got away with stuff last year that would have been called every single time in years past.
Not really sure why anyone is upset or surprised by this. This is the same story that comes out when training camps start opening every year.
The only thing that changes from year to year is which rule the refs are going to emphasize. Seems like none of these Hawks fans watched the game at Candlestick..
Seattle was already being held to a higher standard thanks to all of the whining and crying from opposing coaches and media.
Most PI and holding calls in the league last year; League office actually called up and apologized twice for pass interference that should not have been called.
Should be fun to watch. To all the Seahawk haters cheering for this: Have fun when your team picks up a ticky-tack call in a critical situation, and when it does happen, I want you to remember reading these words: You asked for it.
If this is going to be the case, I would also ask that coaches be able to ask for a review, and if there was no sign of interferance by the DB, just bad acting by the receiver, it should be 15 yds unsportsman like conduct.
This changes very little. The amount of ground he covers, keeps the ball in front of everyone. AZ Cards fan here. Nothing will change. I saw every game.
They are just a good team being hated on because they started at the bottom and rose to prominence.

Dallas Cowboys. 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— For the third time that season, the Seahawks played the San Francisco 49ers.
The Niners scored 17 points and gained total yards, but Seattle survived 23—17 after forcing turnovers on all three of the 49ers' fourth-quarter possessions.
Kam Chancellor picked off a pass to set up a field goal, and Richard Sherman tipped a pass to Malcolm Smith to clinch the game with less than 30 seconds left.
This play and the immediate aftermath became infamous, for a brief shoving match between Sherman and 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree , Sherman's choke sign at QB Colin Kaepernick that he was later fined for, and his post-game rant in an interview with Erin Andrews.
The Seahawks saved their best for last with their performance in Super Bowl XLVIII , holding the Denver Broncos record-breaking offense to yards and 8 points, forcing 4 turnovers and not allowing a score until the final play of the 3rd quarter.

His last year in Seattle began with a holdout and ended with an injury that cut his season to only four games. Now, as a member of the Baltimore Ravens, however, he is seeing success on a different team.
One day it will be your turn! The Legion of Boom is no more , but its impact helped to shape a culture in the NFL that allowed defenses to be just as important as offenses.
While the Seahawks and the core trio of the team have all moved on from one another, the groundwork they laid remains. Defense is making a comeback in the NFL, and the young teenagers who watched the Legion form are now making their way into the league, themselves.
