Robert Turbin's girlfriend Devin gave some random guy an amazing Christmas present. If you haven't heard this story yet, it really is awesome. There's a video below that documents the entire situation, but in case you'd rather read about it and hear what we have to say about it, please proceed.

Essentially, Turbin's girlfriend Devin has not been captured on camera and has not been completely identified. She's like the yeti or sasquatch of cool and generous NFL girlfriends. She ran into this guy at a Seahawks game who was wearing a Seahawks jacket, and she asked to put on his jacket so she could snap a picture of herself to send to her boyfriend. The guy asked why, and she told him her boyfriend is Robert Turbin. Turbin himself is a solid running back and looks like a bodybuilder. Seriously, have you guys seen the arms on this dude? He's a freak! Anyway, the guy said sure and that it'd be great if he could get something autographed by a player from the game. She agreed, gave him a number to call after the game was over, but his phone died. Long story short, this Devin apparently told Robert what happened, and he had the entire team sign a Seahawks helmet and shipped it to him. Absolutely awesome Christmas present.

Now, I don't know how these types of things work in the Seahawks organization. For all I know, the organization designated a time when the entire team gets together and signs dozens of helmets for gift-giving purposes. If this is the scenario (and I believe it is based on what I know about professional sports organizations) I still find this to be a great story. Think about it-- how many helmets do you think they have the team sign? I'd imagine the upper limit is 200 helmets. Okay, so you've got 200 helmets for anyone in the organization to give as presents, but that's almost nothing when you think about how many actual people work for the Seahawks. That's like 1 helmet per person, and I really don't believe they'd have the players sign 200 helmets anyway. Any way you slice it, this helmet is a freaking amazing gift. And it's all thanks to Robert Turbin and his awesome girlfriend Devin.

Dan Quinn's wife Stacey Quinn started a foundation with Dan called Quinn's Corps, and the purpose of the foundation is to help veterans and military families. They apparently give out free tickets, meals, parking to military families on game days, and they also donate to something called Fisher House, which is a bunch of homes in the Seattle area where veteran families can stay for free while a family member is receiving treatment. That's a nice thing to do for them. They started their program in 2004 so it's been humming along for a little over ten years.

Dan Quinn's wife Stacey Quinn has been married for about twenty years now to the fella'. In an article and interview in the National Catholic Register, Quinn mentioned how Stacey's selflessness and support helped their marriage survive so long. It is pretty hectic being married to an NFL coach, for sure. We've seen countless examples of wives sticking it out with their coach husbands through move after move after move. Actually, the framing of the question that spurred on his answer regarding Stacey is more interesting than his actual answer. It was: "You've had a good number of Catholic colleagues, right?" This leads me to believe that Stacey herself is very religious, as the Quinn's attend Mass as often as possible.

Stacey is now well aware that Dan will be coaching in his home state in front of his entire hometown of Morristown, New Jersey for the Super Bowl. She's been shy for the media, but Dan has taken up the reigns and called it an "enormous opportunity," which is about what anyone might expect a coach or player to say. Dan's wife Stacey will probably be coordinating with Quinn's Corps to get some kids some free tickets to the game.

Kam Chancellor's Mom Karen Lambert

We're going to change it up for a second on this one. It'll seem to you the opposite of some stories you've heard and that we've even posted about NFL players whose parents and family get greedy and continually ask and even demand more from their gold-mine sons. Such is not the case for Kam Chancellor's mom Karen Lambert. This is sort of the archetype of the rags-to-riches NFL athlete.

Chancellor signed a $34 million deal sometime in January of 2014, and that allowed him to do something for his mom that he'd always promised to do. He took Karen to the house that he picked out for her, and there was a Lexus with a big bow tied on top of it as well. He told her that the keys to the car are inside, and when she entered the house their entire family (including nieces and nephews) jumped out and yelled surprise. No, she did not drop dead from shock (that would have put a bit of a crimp in things). Kam Chancellor's mom Karen Lambert was probably a happy and proud lady at that moment.

Karen raised Kam in Norfolk, Virginia and generally always had two or three jobs at a time. They were poor, and Karen had four other children besides Kam to take care of. Kam describes the situation as "rough," but tackling dudes in the NFL also requires some roughness, right? I'm sure his past helped mold him and fuel his ambitions to become a three-time Pro Bowler. Chancellor said of Karen, "She was always a very independent person and hard-working. She worked so hard just to provide food on our table and clothes on our backs and shelter over our heads. I looked up to that, her being so strong. I didn't have any father figures around and she kept us out of trouble and guided us in the right direction."
