  • Am I the only one who saw russ get smashed all day by 4 man pass rush? I mean the oline played the worst ive ever seen which is saying something.

  • No one's been saying that since the beginning of the season when he actually deserved the award. Is it really that validating just whaling on strawmen?

  • Russ rewrote his legacy with this game.

    No longer a top tier QB. He is firmly in the 2nd tier as a QB that only won when his supporting cast was HOF flush.

    Without Lynch, without the LOB, he isn't near Rodgers or Mahomes.

    He is a QB that can carry a team to wildcard wins, but that is about it.

  • What should Russ trademark for next season? He'll have plenty of time for all his media appearances.

    We all saw that. We also saw no attempts to try and counter it, aside from 1 drive where we attempted risky throws to TEs.

    Do we even employ any TEs? I remember a number of fastballs into the middle of the field, but don't recall anyone catching them.

  • I think you need to tell us what your Real problem with Wilson is. Because it’s not football.

    Every non-Seahawks fan I’m speaking to, is talking about how garbage the Seahawks O-line is. It hasn’t been great since the second half of the season

    Maybe we could afford a better OL if Russ didn't demand half our salary cap.

  • The guy does podcast every week. Maybe he should worry about on field activities rather than off field.

    Doubtful. He loves to be in front of the camera.

  • Yea, he didn’t have a very good game, but look at the dropped passes.
    The guy was running for his life the whole game. That int was because
    Of pressure to get Metcalf the ball. Our Defense played well for most
    Of the game. The offense needs to stay on the field so our defense
    Can breath. We just got beat by a much better team.

  • It probably isn't all Wilson's fault. He was enabled.

    Remember the stories when the LOB was here about how they were not allowed to trash talk him?

    Pete coddled him. And Wilson started to believe some of the crap he was being fed.

    That made him weak and soft. This sucks because Wilson is or was, tremendously tough mentally.

    His greatest strength was that under pressure he got better not worse. A tremendous attribute and incredibly rare.

    What did we do?

    Take all the pressure we could off him.

    Now he can barely play under pressure because he is scared to take chances. And so, when he does they are often stupid chances.

    Wilson has agency. Not saying he is blameless. But Pete created this monster that turned Wilson weak and gutless. He was once fearless, relentless, and driven.

    And there is no shame in not being a top 2 or 3 QB. You can still win despite that. But clinging to the delusion that you can do it all means you plan for nothing else. And without any game plan or any preparation, we were then screwed.

    I think Wilson's chance of ever getting a single MVP vote just died though. As did much of his legacy. A lot more credit will be given to the LOB (+ the rest of that Defense) and Lynch now, likely rightfully so.
