After the Seattle Seahawks' worst home loss in over seven seasons on Sunday afternoon to the Los Angeles Rams, tensions were understandably high. Seahawks star defensive players in linebacker Bobby Wagner and safety Earl Thomas began feuding the other day over comments Thomas made after the lopsided loss.
Per a video posted to Twitter via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, Wagner originally said that the two spoke and reconciled.
“We spoke,” Wagner said. “We ironed things out like we always do. Moving forward, we’re focused on making sure we finish off this season right. We still have a lot out there for us.”
Wagner also admitted that he handled the situation with Thomas the wrong way and will learn from it.
“Emotions get high and things of that nature, so everybody has emotions,” Wagner said. “You can’t always act on them. I am man enough to admit that I handled the situation wrong, and I will do better moving forward. We live, and we learn.”
However, according to an article written by Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk, Thomas disputes the report that he and Wagner talked about the incident together.
“Wasn't no conversation,” Thomas said. “It is what it is. Let's move on. How you feel, that's how you feel.”
When asked if he believes things need to be patched up between the two of them, Thomas said that wasn't necessary.
“Nah, ain't no patching,” Thomas said. “If that's what's in your heart, cool. Let's finish strong.”
The Seahawks (8-6) really need Wagner and Thomas at their best on Sunday when they visit the Dallas Cowboys (8-6) in a game that will have a major impact on the NFC playoff race.
