Russell Wilson named NFC offensive player of the week

If you have Russell Wilson, you have a chance.

The Seahawks quarterback was named NFC offensive player of the week, after leading his team to an overtime win over the Buccaneers last week.

Wilson threw five touchdowns, including the key one on the first possession of the extra session, when the Bucs didn’t get the ball back.

It was the kind of vintage Wilson performance that has him in the heart of the MVP conversations, at a time when the offensive personnel around him isn’t the same as it used to be.

  1. Recency bias? They both won AFC and nfc offensive players of the week. Russell Wilson had one of his best games ever Sunday. Numbers much better than Lamars game…5 TDs 0 interceptions.

    Recency bias doesn’t favor Lamar unless you are a Pat’s fan.

    I think most Pat’s fans are knowledgable enough to know it is Russell as well.

    But good job getting me fired up and making me post about it I guess…

    Wilson had a very nice game. Not sure it was worth $35M, but it was nice.

    If 5 TD’s 0 turnovers and nearly 400 yards in a walkoff win isn’t worth $35M…literally nothing is.

    You’re right, he’s probably worth more.

  4. The 35 million dollar dude is streaky. He will play well in stretches and then he will stink. He stunk in the games against Baltimore (less than 50% completion) and against New Orleans (could not do anything until garbage time when the game was already lost). He was ranked second in passing yards in the NFL for the first half of 2017, but by the end of the season he was ranked in midpack in passing yards per game. Quite a big plunge.

  5. LOl I would not trade Jimmy G. for anyone, not even Tom Brady. Jimmy G. has a bright future ahead of him. RW will be traded once Seattle realizes that it won’t get anywhere near the Super Bowl with his bloated contract hampering a sorely needed rebuilding. The Legion of boom 2.0 is 29th in the league in yards allowed, and 22nd in points allowed. They allow the opposition more than 6 yard per play. RW cannot play defense and they need help on defense big time. Defense wins championships. Offense sells tickets. Seattle will sell a lot of tickets but they won’t win any championship for the foreseeable future.

  6. Numbers do not lie. Russell Wilson was 11-5 in his first 16 games as a pro, and he had a great defense, with the Beast Mode in the same backfield.

    Jimmy G. is 14-2 in his first 16 games as a pro. He went 5-0 in 2017 with a team that had gone 1-11 before he took over, with Carlos Hyde as his running back and a good but not spectacular defense. Kyle Shanahan is 4-18 as 49er coach without Jimmy G., but he is 14-2 with Jimmy G. as starter. Only a guy like Pete Carroll would trade Jimmy G. for someone else, because they would not listen to him and his stories. Richard Charmin and ET got tired of his stories, and they are gone. Kyle Shanahan does not tell stories, he just let his players play to their best ability.

  7. you’re totally right Newton, numbers don’t lie.

    2505 yds 22 td / 1 int – $35M
    1806 yds 13 td / 7 int – $27.5M

    the repetitive bagging on Wilson – as he puts the team on his back week after week and marches toward the MVP – just becomes more and more nonsensical.

    though I suppose you do serve a role around here, so, keep up the good work.

    He doesn’t make 35 mil a game. If this was your QB, you’d be holding a parade. It’s a player of the week award. A nice accolade but, that’s all it is.
