The Seahawks thrashed the Cardinals thoroughly and completely last week.

And return man Tyler Lockett was a huge part of that.

Lockett was named NFC special teams player of the week, after returning four punts for a franchise-record 139 yards. That included a 66-yarder.

The third-rounder also had two catches for 36 yards, giving the Seahawks an added element to their offense during the time when they were without running back Marshawn Lynch.

  1. Viking fans are so funny. Seattle has beat them down every team in the last 3 or 4 years. Not one contest was close yet its a cold outside and here they are talking trash. Reality check, Seattle is the number 1 rush defense, they also are ranked 1 spot higher in team rushing and have a QB that been the the last 2 Super Bowl and shines in big moments. How does Teddy do?

    Tyler Lockett is a special player. He comes from a great bloodline and puts in the work to be great. He is absolutely fearless as a PR/KR, so glad he made it to the Pro Bowl. As a WR is a nasty match up because he has 4.3 speed and has the quickest change of direction. Its like a combo of Percy Harvin/Golden Tate with better route running.

  2. Spent my childhood in Kansas and my entire adult life in Seattle. Between the Hawks and Chiefs/Royals this last few years have been great for me from a sports perspective. Watching Lockett kill it at K-State and then rip up the field in Seattle has been a highlight for sure.

  3. He absolutely deserves to be Rookie of the Year and it’s not even close. Most of the other candidates for this award will be watching the post-season from their couch.

  4. Many people (including fellow Seahawk fans) were befuddled when the Seahawks gave their 3rd (95) pick, ALONG WITH a 4th, 5th, and 6th round pick to Washington, “only” to receive the 3rd (69) pick in return.

    What we know now is that the Texans planned on drafting T-Lock with the 3rd (70) pick and the ‘Hawks did exactly what they had to do to get an amazing player and an amazing kid. Shrewd. So shrewd.

  5. EVERYONE knows how special he is a KR guy. However, the Hawks keep integrating him into the game plan more and Russell really is trusting him.

  6. Saw a re-draft where this kid went in the top ten. Unreal combination of speed, balance, and most importantly, work ethic. Another steal for Schneider.
