Russell Wilson gets to 100 wins faster than anyone


On the same day that Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady set the all-time record for career passing yardage, another quarterback set another all-time record.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson became the fastest quarterback to 100 wins. Wilson got there in the fourth game of his tenth season. The only other quarterback to win one hundred games in ten seasons was Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, who got there in the tenth game of his tenth campaign.

Brady, by the way, needed a full year beyond Wilson. Brady won his one hundredth in the fourth game of his eleventh season. (Unlike Wilson and Manning, Brady spent his first season on the bench.) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger made it to a hundred in the eighth game of his eleventh season. Packers quarterback Brett Favre and Bills quarterback Jim Kelly did it in the twelfth game of their eleventh seasons.

Wilson got to one hundred on his third try. And today’s win at San Francisco avoided what would have been the first three-game losing streak in Wilson’s career.

I’ll stop typing now and let the people who insist that quarterback wins have no relevance can piss and moan about this post. Bye.

  1. MLB starting pitcher is the only position in any team sport for which wins are useful as an individual stat.

  2. On his way to rewriting the standards for NFL QBs. The best least-respected great QB of all time.

    He’s done what no other player has ever done.

  3. Hockey goalies have wins/losses tracked, baseball pitchers have wins/losses tracked, and football qbs have wins/losses tracked. Not that big of a deal to track it and it happens in other sports for certain positions.

  4. First ballot HOFer. Not the greatest of all time. Not the best QB of his era. But a HOFer. A winner. Football is a bottom line business. Winning is the bottom line, and Russell Wilson wins.

  5. Wilson forced Seattle to start him in 2012. People forget that Seattle signed Matt Flynn to be the starter, but Wilson took the starting job in week one. Wilson killed teams in the first few years with the read option. Wilson throws one of the best deep balls in the NFL and is still elusive in the pocket and has the ability to be a starting NFL quarterback for years to come….

    Dan Marino has none.

  7. It has relevance, but when Wilson gets a few years older and he loses his ability to escape out of the pocket, he’s going to be nowhere near as efficient. He won’t come close to any of the all-time QB win records, which seems to be what you are alluding to.

    And yet ONE Ring.


    Hall of Famers Fran Tarkenton, Jim Kelly, and Dan Marino are 0-9 in Super Bowls. Hall of Famers or future ones in the one Super Bowl ring category include Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Kurt Warner, and Steve Young (as a starter).

  9. It is an irrelevant stat. Brady achieved 100 wins in sometime like 130 starts rather than the 149 the Wilson took. And in Brady’s first 9 seasons, he won two more Super Bowls than did Wilson. Wilson is a very good quarterback, but please stop over-hyping the guy about a level of greatness that he has not shown.

  10. And yet ONE Ring.


    One ring more than what 25 other franchises during his career

  11. yay… did we always care about the 100 win mark, or just now to make it seam wilson has achieved something?
    gotta do more in the post season to get that ultimate “undenyable” respect he is looking for…

  12. ONE RING.

    That’s all that matters. Would have more if he’d been on another Team by now. Pete ain’t it folks.

  13. Congrats to RW for this milestone. But yesterday I also heard announcers and his Seahawk teammates acknowledging that he’s slowing down. And coincidentally, it was only when the Niners’ rookie QB got on the field that Wilson decided to run and to take over the game. He’s feeling Father Time chasing him.

  14. And yet ONE Ring

    Would have been two if not for a boneheaded playcall.

  15. It’s kind of funny that people blame the playcall and not the QB for that interception.

  16. Or more accurately, the Patriots preparation and execution on a fairly predictable move they studied that week.

  17. Or more accurately, the Patriots preparation and execution on a fairly predictable move they studied that week.

    Agreed. And the opposite for Seattle. Everything went wrong on that play.

    No stopping Lynch though. Violent short yardage runner, the best of his era. Give him 2 cracks at it, which they had, he scores.
