Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson ranked No.2 on NFL Network’s 2020 Top 100 list


Yet for all the impressive numbers Wilson has released over the course of his career – his career 101.2 passer rating ranks second all-time behind Aaron Rodgers, and his 100 touchdown passes in the past three seasons are an NFL high, by 15 touchdowns – that defined Wilson. the career has been above all success as a team. Since Wilson and Bobby Wagner joined the Seahawks in 2012, Seattle has reached the playoffs seven times in eight years, played two Super Bowls and won one. Wilson’s 86 regular season wins are tied with Tom Brady for the most part by a quarterback in his first eight seasons in the Super Bowl era.

“With Russell out there, whatever, you have a chance,” Carroll said last season. “You have a chance no matter what happens. ”

As veteran linebacker KJ Wright said last season, “If you have Russell out there as a quarterback, you have a good chance of winning. ”

After Wilson helped lead the Seahawks to a Wild Card playoff victory over the Eagles, Wright added, “He’s just a guy who’s so consistent, so ready, he can just do something with nothing. I just love him and I’m happy he’s my quarterback. ”

Wilson is the sixth player on the Seahawks’ current roster to make this year’s Top 100, joining linebacker Bobby Wagner (13), safety Jamal Adams (27), wide receiver Tyler Lockett (65), wide receiver DK Metcalf (81) and running back Chris Carson (96). Also included was defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who placed 41st after spending 2019 with the Seahawks.

Additionally, with three former Seahawks in this year’s Top 100, Carroll and GM John Schneider drafted eight players in this year’s Top 100: Wilson, Wagner, Lockett, Metcalf, Carson, Richard Sherman (28), Earl Thomas (75) and Frank Clark (95).
