He did so in his own way. What came with the name was an attitude, a style of play that set the tone for the rest of the team.
It was the result of an experiment by Pete Carroll and John Schneider, the head coach and roster brain, respectively, behind the Seahawks. They came in, they detonated the roster, and they built around a bunch of hungry, largely underrated players.
And they hoped it would work out. Schneider and Carroll took Earl Thomas , a safety whose size was used as a knock and who still wears that chip on his shoulder today, with the 14th pick in the NFL Draft.
It was the perfect pairing. The next year, also in the 5th round, they added Richard Sherman, a WR-turned-corner from Stanford who stewed during the draft as other players at his position were drafted ahead of him he turned out fine.
The final piece has been a rotating cast of characters that began with Brandon Browner , who was in the CFL at the time.
The best bet was always Thomas, who made up for questions about size with speed, instincts and an absolute ferociousness. But there was Chancellor, Sherman It was an experiment built within a pretty good system of a defense.

In Week 14, against a Philadelphia Eagles offense that would eventually rank third in the league in points and fifth in yards, the Seahawks gave up yards and 14 points.
Tharold Simon picked off his first pass of the season and Earl Thomas recovered a fumble. The Seahawks won, 24— In another tilt against the 49ers in Week 15, San Francisco had yards and 7 points in the 17—7 loss.
The Seahawks won 35—6, holding Arizona to yards and the 6 points. Sherman grabbed the only turnover of the game, intercepting a pass and returning it 53 yards.
To close out their run, the Seahawks beat the St. Louis Rams 20—6, giving up yards. The game was sealed on an Earl Thomas forced fumble at the goal line.
Seattle surrendered yards in the divisional-round game against the Carolina Panthers , as well as 17 points. Kam Chancellor sealed the game with an interception that he took 90 yards for a touchdown.
He also twice leaped over the center on field-goal tries in attempts to block the kick, although he missed the ball both times and both plays were whistled dead by a penalty.
Richard Sherman recorded an interception as well, and Earl Thomas forced a fumble. Seattle won, 31— In an improbable "miracle" comeback against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game, the Seahawks scored 15 points in the final of regulation and winning on a yard touchdown reception by Jermaine Kearse in overtime.
Sherman and Maxwell each recorded an interception in the game. The Seahawks offense and special teams turned the ball over five times in the game, but the defense forced overtime, and the 28—22 victory sent the Seahawks to a second straight Super Bowl.
The Seahawks defense did not allow a single yard passer in any game, regular season or postseason, heading into the Super Bowl. Starting nickelback Jeremy Lane suffered a gruesome injury during the game.
After intercepting Tom Brady's pass in the end-zone and attempting to return the ball downfield, Lane was tackled awkwardly while attempting to brace himself for impact with the ground, severely fracturing his wrist and forearm, while simultaneously damaging the ACL in his knee.
Unfortunately, backup nickelback Marcus Burley had been listed as inactive, so Lane was replaced by backup outside cornerback Tharold Simon for the remainder of the game.
Simon, seemingly overmatched, was outplayed by slot receiver Julian Edelman and repeatedly targeted by Tom Brady, fostering an unlikely Patriots' 4th-quarter comeback.
Lane later said he immediately was sent to surgery to fix his injury, and when he woke up he saw the Seahawks with the ball on the one yard line and witnessed the interception that followed.
Defensive end Cliff Avril was also injured during the game, he left during the 3rd quarter due to a concussion and did not return.
Despite having a torn ligament in his elbow sustained during the NFC Championship Game, Richard Sherman played the entire game, as did Earl Thomas, even though he dislocated his shoulder during the game.
In addition, Kam Chancellor suffered a bruised knee during pre-game practice, but also played. Some point to all these injuries as the cause of the 28 points that the Seahawks allowed to the Patriots, which was unusual for a defense that only allowed an average of The main focus following the game, however, was the coaching staff's decision to throw the ball on the one yard line instead of allowing Marshawn Lynch to run the ball.
Lynch led the league tied with DeMarco Murray in running touchdowns that season and was fourth in total rushing yardage. It was only the second time in the season that they allowed more than two passing touchdowns in one game, and the only time they allowed four passing touchdowns.
The Legion of Boom has given up or more passing yards in only six games since their inception with Richard Sherman's first start in ; of those six, two are their games against the New England Patriots.
The LOB went in their meeting with the Patriots with their only loss against them coming in the Super Bowl wins in and The Legion of Boom had a rocky start to the season, both on and off the field.
Kam Chancellor did not attend training camp and missed the entire preseason, holding out in an effort to get the team to renegotiate his contract, which had three seasons remaining.
The holdout continued into the regular season, with Chancellor not being a part of the team for the first two games. The Seahawks would lose both games, the defense allowing 27 points in both games.
Dion Bailey , replacing Chancellor at Strong Safety in Week 1, fell down in coverage and allowed the game-tying touchdown with less than a minute left in the fourth quarter.
Chancellor would bring the Legion back together in Week 3 by ending his holdout without any contract concessions from the team. In that Week 3 game, the Seahawks surrendered 0 points and total offensive yards.
The next week, the Seahawks defense allowed 3 points and yards against the Lions. With less than two minutes remaining in the game and the Seahawks leading , Lions Wide Receiver Calvin Johnson caught a pass and was preparing to leap into the endzone for the go-ahead touchdown, but Kam Chancellor punched the ball out at the one-yard line, the forced fumble ultimately preserving the win.
The play garnered more attention for what happened after the fumble, with K. Wright illegally batting the ball out of the back of the endzone for a touchback, which should have been a penalty that would have kept the ball in the possession of the Lions.
Both games, however, would end in close losses for the Seahawks. In Week 7, playing the San Francisco 49ers on the road, the Seahawks defense allowed just offensive yards the 49ers lowest output in a game since  in a 20—3 victory.
The following week, the Seahawks held the Dallas Cowboys to total yards and 12 points on four field goals in a victory. In addition, they held star wide receiver Antonio Brown to just 6 catches for 51 yards.
It was the only time all year that the Cardinals would score fewer than 20 points and gain fewer than yards at home.
