Was Bobby Wagner part of the Legion of Boom?
Wagner was part of the “Legion of Boom” defense in Seattle.
Wagner has 1,383 tackles, 23.5 sacks, 11 interceptions, and four defensive touchdowns in 151 games as a member of the Legion of Boom.
During the Seattle Seahawks’ climb to prominence in the 2010s, the Legion of Boom (LOB) was the team’s secondary.
Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Brandon Browner, Walter Thurmond, and Byron Maxwell were the founding members of the Legion of Boom, the Seahawks’ defensive backfield starters (cornerback and safety positions).
Bobby Wagner, K. J. Wright, Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, Malcolm Smith, Brandon Mebane, Frank Clark, Chris Clemons, and Bruce Irvin were among the players who earned the nickname over time.
Jeremy Lane, DeShawn Shead, Tharold Simon, Marcus Burley, Bradley McDougald, Shaquill Griffin, and Justin Coleman were among the secondary’s eventual starters.
The Seahawks won six straight seasons, three division crowns, two NFC championships, and a Super Bowl during the LOB era.
They made the playoffs in five straight seasons (winning at least one game in each appearance) and had five consecutive seasons with ten or more wins, a feat the team had never accomplished before.
They also won back-to-back Super Bowls, securing the franchise’s first ever championship.
