Seahawks 2010 -2019 offense, the best in team history

QB: Russell Wilson. No need to be coy about this, is there? Wilson is one of the very best quarterbacks in the history of the NFL, so it would be pretty strange if the man who’s started every game since September 9, 2012, wasn’t the Hawks best QB of the decade. He’s the career leader in touchdowns, touchdown rate, interception rate, yards per attempt and game, and passer rating, the last by a mile. After Sunday’s game, he’ll be the team leader in most yards passing as well. He’s been great, and possibly having his best year everI .

RB: Marshawn Lynch. I love Chris Carson, but there’s only one Beast Mode. Lynch led the league in rushing touchdowns twice and made the Pro Bowl in four of his five complete seasons in Seattle. In unofficial stats, he also led the NFL in best interviews, decibels, and annihilation of puny defenders who dared get in his way. On and off the field, there has never been anyone quite like Marshawn Lynch.

WR: Doug Baldwin. Of course, Angry Doug gets the nod at one of the receiver slots. Slot being the operative term here. He only led the league in any category once, that being touchdowns (14) in 2015, and he only got two Pro Bowl starts. 12s know this is because the voters were clinically insane. And apparently still are. Baldwin led all Seahawks wideouts in catches, yards, and touchdowns as a rookie in 2011, an accomplishment he would repeat four times. I think the highest compliment to value is the fact the Hawks drafted three wide receivers this year to replace his production.

WR: Tyler Lockett. The man makes the spectacular look routine, and the impossible possible. Lockett is the first player who wasn’t a member of the title squad of 2013. He was still a sophomore at Kansas State, so it isn’t exactly his fault. He’s a bit faster than Baldwin, 4.40 to 4.48, and his catch rate is just a hair ahead of him, 72.3 to 68.3 percent. That’s not a knock on Baldwin, believe me. Lockett more than holds his own in traffic, but no one was tougher than Angry Doug.
