Bobby Wagner fires back at Earl Thomas for saying he should not have played
A couple of Seattle Seahawks teammates were sparring after the team got destroyed by the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
Following the team’s 42-7 thumping at the hands of the Rams, Thomas said he didn’t think some of the injured players should have played in the game.
“To be totally honest–I think the guys that played, you know, you’ve got to get your hats off to ‘Wags’ and the couple of (injured) guys who played–but my personal opinion (is) I don’t think they should have played,” Thomas said.via the Tacoma News Tribune. “I think the backups would have done just as good.”
Bobby Wagner was among those who played hurt. He was questionable entering the game but still suited up. So it’s understandable why he would be particularly offended by the comment.
Here’s what he said in response in a since-deleted tweet:

Not only are the Seahawks in danger of losing the division, but now there’s some in-fighting on top of all their existing defensive injuries. They’re in bad shape.
