Seattle Seahawks: 15 greatest quarterbacks in franchise history
By Lee Vowell
Russell Wilson is the best quarterback in Seahawks lore and the numbers back this fact up. Plus, think of the last few seasons and then think of where Seattle would be without Wilson. 12s should be happy with all of the victories Wilson brings them.
Since Wilson entered the league in 2012, Seattle has missed the playoffs just once and that was in 2017. Wilson has led Seattle to two Super Bowls and got Seattle its first championship in 2013. Did he do it on his own? No. But a big reason Seattle has won as much as it has over the 2010s decade is because of Wilson.
By the end of the 2019 season, Wilson will rank first in passing yards thrown by a Seahawk. He already is first in touchdown passes, wins, QBR (no one else is even close here), completion percentage, yards per pass, yards per game and game-winning drives (again, no one is a close second in this category).
Wilson became the focus of the Seattle offense in 2015 and has made the Seahawks offense one of the best in the NFL ever since. Seattle’s defense has digressed in quality but Seattle continues to make the playoffs. Why? It is pretty simple. They are currently led by the best quarterback in Seahawks history: Russell Wilson.
