D.K. Metcalf is going to be something special
Throughout the course of this season, I have found myself saying that very thing over and over and over again. D.K. Metcalf, in just two years, has proved all of his doubters wrong. He has made all 31 other teams regret passing on him in the NFL. Granted, he does have Russell Wilson as his quarterback. But, this young man came into the league with the right mindset and more importantly, a distinct work ethic.
Getting drafted late in the second round might end up being the best thing to ever happen to D.K. Metcalf. It created a chip on his shoulder and allowed him to come into this league with some serious motivation. Being involved in a way more explosive offense in his second season, fans were able to see some of the upside of D.K. His jumping ability coupled with his size and speed is truly second to none. He is a freak of a nature. Although he has had his fair share of mistakes on the season, he has shown resiliency by continually attacking and keeping his head up.
In Week 17 against the 49ers, D.K. Metcalf also set a new franchise record. He broke Seattle legend Steve Largent’s record for most receiving yards in a single season. D.K. has recorded 1,303 receiving yards on the season and will look to add to that in the postseason.
The scary thing is, this Seattle offense hit a wall in the middle of the season. They had a couple of sloppy performances that resulted in some poor losses. Imagine if that didn’t happen. Who knows how many yards D.K. would have finished with. The one thing we do know is, Seattle is certainly happy he fell to them.
