Earl Thomas' seemingly impossible speed, inhuman instincts, and otherworldly intelligence have earned him the moniker "ET" or "The Alien," and the deep middle of the field that he patrols has been coined "Area 29" because of the inexplicable, almost paranormal defensive events that take place there.

A confidential informant has provided Field Gulls with top secret documents that suggest that Seattle's clairvoyant free safety and Defensive Player of the Year candidate may, in fact, not be human.
The informant, who wanted to remain anonymous, contacted Field Gulls via e-mail on Tuesday. He declined to provide any explanation as to how the six files -- four interviews and two memoranda -- came into his possession. He was, however, able to provide proof of their authenticity.
+ An interview with a chief research scientist
+ An interview with an unidentified NFL quarterback
+ An interview with a fan, along with three photographs taken by said fan
+ An interview with an unidentified Seattle Seahawks player
+ A memorandum concerning a report from Seattle Tacoma International Airport air traffic control
+ A memorandum regarding the Seahawks arrival in New York for the Super Bowl
