Earl Thomas shows good sportsmanship still exists after heated Wild Card game

BY Ross Jones • January 11, 2016

Sportsmanship isn't something that's always on display in the NFL postseason.

It was present, however, in the Vikings' locker room after their 10-9 loss to the Seahawks. 

Shortly after Blair Walsh's gut-wrenching missed field goal that would send Seattle to Carolina for this week's divisional round, safety Earl Thomas had something to get off his chest. 

Before the Seahawks were annual postseason contenders, they were a collection of players once considered to be pushed-to-the-curb overachievers.

Though Seattle won the NFC West in 2010 with a 7-9 record, the veteran safety understands the struggles young teams go through before they get over the hump. 

Thomas wreaked havoc in the secondary on Sunday, but he may have made a bigger mark on an impressionable group of competitors after the game.
