Little guy, big numbers could happen neat the end of the Seahawks season
Week 11 v Arizona
Back in 2012 a young kid out of Wisconsin, by the name of Russell Wilson, made his NFL debut against the Arizona Cardinals and threw for a modest 153 passing yards in that game. Now in his tenth season, Wilson starts this campaign with 37,732 passing yards in the NFL and is back against the team where it all began, and this could be where he reaches the 40,000 passing yard mark.
Again there are currently only 22 people that have ever achieved this mark, so added to his earlier landmark in this piece explains why we all watch in amazement and awe as Wilson continues to pile up career stats that make him one of the best ever.
Wilson may have already got to 40k the week before, but either way, he deserves an ovation from the home fans for this momentous achievement.
Week 12 at Washington, Week 13 v San Francisco or week 14 v Houston
Next up is Tyler Lockett, who starts 2021 with 5,363 career receiving yards to his credit at an average of 53 yards per game. On that basis, the home fans will get to celebrate his reaching 6,000 receiving yards in one of these games.
Although with just short of 3,500 of those yards coming in the last three seasons at an average of over 63 yards per game, he may get to 6,000 sooner than week 13. Whenever he gets to 6,000 he will be on target to be in the top-200 all time by the end of the season in terms of receiving yards.
Week 15 at LA Rams
Bobby Wagner is back for another career landmark. Having recognized him for reaching 1,400 career tackles, this could be the game where he hits 1,500. To us, 1,500 is just a number, but ask any player in the NFL how hard it can be to bring one guy down and you will get some comprehension of how huge a number 150 tackles is.
And for every single one of them to have come in a Seahawks uniform makes us love and admire him even more. Here’s to the 2,000th tackle in 2024!
