4. Russell Wilson is the only thing keeping this team competitive

Imagine the Seahawks without Russell Wilson at quarterback!

It was still a loss, but Russell Wilson‘s performance against the Rams was historic. Literally, no one has ever done what Wilson did on Sunday in the NFL’s rich history.

As I mentioned earlier, the Seahawks defense isn’t what it was last season. The Seahawks were in every game mostly because of their stingy defense allowing the fewest points in the NFL. Wilson and the offense had the ability to develop and they weren’t forced to play from behind. Two touchdowns and a field goal were good enough to tie or win 10 games in 2013.

17 points would have won them one game (Green Bay) and tied (Washington) another this year. Wilson has only surpassed 300 passing yards once (Rams), but has managed to rush for over 100 yards in two games – scoring three rushing TD’s to go with his 10 passing TD’s and only 2 INT’s.
