Winning the weekly award wasn’t enough for Seahawks return man Tyler Lockett, so he got the whole month this time.

Lockett was named NFC special teams player of the month for the second time, after amassing 759 all-purpose yards in the last five games of the season.

Lockett had 244 kickoff return yards and 183 punt return yards, showing the ability to flip field position at any moment. He scored three touchdowns and had at least 100 all-purpose yards in each game.

The third-rounder also made history by becoming the first rookie since Gale Sayers to score at least five receiving touchdowns and touchdowns on both kick and punt returns.

  1. Very HUMBLE kid that has his head screwed on straight. This guy is also a VERY good route runner as a WR and super FAST!

  2. It’s unbelievable that neither John Schneider and Pete Carroll have not been awarded NFL Executive or Coach of the Year since they have have been in Seattle. It’s not just the number of wins and titles they have won. They inherited a team that was full of players with overpriced past their prime and underperforming veteran players. That first year they a record amount of player transactions that at the time it had plenty of people questioning if they really had a plan. Now the team has developed a young consistently good team that should be a threat to make the Super Bowl for at least the next few years. Along the way they have had a NFL record number 1 scoring defense for the last 4 years. They also just had their NFL record 62 consecutive games in which they have held the lead in the game at some point snapped in last weeks loss to the Rams. Now Russell Wilson and the offense are beginning to set NFL records. A lot of people continue to say that the team will fall apart because they can’t pay everyone. No consistently great team can pay everyone but Schneider and Carroll keep the core players, draft and develop young players and use free agency to keep the team competitive. They are also not afraid to admit mistakes and cut an underperforming player quickly like (Percy Harvin, Matt Flynn or Carry Williams). I apologize for this mini novel.

    I agree, a lot of people wonder if the Seahawks’ success comes from the QB, the defense, or their running game. The short answer is all of the above, but the real and true answer is Pete Carroll. This is all his doing. He built it and their success is not coming to an end anytime soon. He gets no where near the credit he deserves.

    It amazed me that the Colts GM got it for having the bold, visionary idea of drafting Andrew Luck with the first overall pick, the same year we got Irvin, Wagner, and Wilson with our first three picks.

  5. Seattle Seahawks ONLY defense to ever be NUMBER ONE Defense in the history of the NFL for 4 straight years?

    Think about that, given that the OFFENSES have been given every possible scoring advantage
