There’s a lot of blame to go around in the Seattle Seahawks locker room after the team was served their own asses by Todd Gurley and the Los Angeles Rams.

But three-time All-Pro safety Earl Thomas was specific in his critique, singling out Bobby Wagner, who hadn’t practiced all week due to a hamstring injury and had been given the green light to play about 90 minutes before the game.

“To be totally honest, I think you have to give your hats off to Wags and a couple guys that played, but my personal opinion, I don’t think they should have played,” the hard-hitting Thomas said after the brutal 42-7 defeat. “The backups would have did just as good. The injuries—Kam [Chancellor], Sherm (Richard Sherman), K.J. [Wright]—they definitely hurt today.”

Wagner, a two-time All-Pro linebacker, responded on Twitter before deleting his post: “E keep my name out yo mouth. Stop being jealous of other people success. I still hope you keep balling bro.”

Judging by Wagner’s inability to slide over and stop Gurley on his third of three touchdowns, a rush on third-and-20, Thomas is probably right.

Wagner left the game in the third quarter after the Rams had mounted a 40-0 lead.
