ATLANTA — It was an innocuous mistake near the end of a blowout victory, but Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond wanted to make up for it. He had to make up for it.
The Seahawks weren’t settling for good enough on this day, not again, not after consecutive blah performances and the teeth-gnashing it inspired. All week, they challenged themselves to be better, to be the real Seahawks. Even though the game was in hand, Thurmond wouldn’t relent.
