Legion Of Boom (Seattle Seahawks)

The Legion of Boom was the nickname given to the Seattle Seahawks' defense during their rise to prominence in the 2010s. The original group that was nicknamed the Legion of Boom consisted of the main starters in the Seahawks defensive backfield, or secondary: Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Brandon Browner, Walter Thurmond, and Byron Maxwell. Over time, the nickname grew to encompass the Seahawks defense as a whole, including prominent players such as Bobby Wagner, K. J. Wright, Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, Malcolm Smith, Brandon Mebane, Frank Clark, Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin. Other eventual starting members of the secondary included DeShawn Shead, Jeremy Lane, Shaquill Griffin, Justin Coleman and Bradley McDougald. During the LOB era, the Seahawks amassed six consecutive winning seasons, three division titles, two NFC championships, and a Super Bowl victory.
