Russell Wilson: We are better than we’ve been playing

The Seahawks didn’t get shut out this Sunday, but things weren’t much better against the Cardinals.

Arizona won 23-13 and the Seahawks only managed 266 yards of offense as they lost for the fifth time in the last six games. Quarterback Russell Wilson has been back from his finger injury for the last two losses, but he has not played at a high level and frustration has been growing around the 3-7 team.

Wilson tried to find some optimism to battle that frustration after the game. He told reporters he believes “we can fix it” and that the Seahawks are capable of more than they’ve put on the field of late.

“We’ve got to be better. That’s the truth,” Wilson said, via Adam Jude of the Seattle Times. “The truth, too, is we are better than what we’ve been playing. And the truth is that we also believe in that we can be better as a collective group. And the truth is, we got seven games to go. And we’ll see what happens.”

Everyone would agree that the Seahawks need to be better. Wilson might have a hard time finding co-signers to the notion that this group is capable of that kind of improvement.

  1. The truth is, as the great philosopher Bill Parcells said, “You are what your record says you are.”

  2. I hate that expression….because realistically you’re not. There is more to this game than just what your team looks like on paper. Execution, motivation, desire are just as important as potential. And now…all you guys have is potential…that’s it.

  3. Russell has been a great QB throughout the years, but with all of his talk about his own legacy, and shopping himself around to winning teams. . . he doesn’t seem the same anymore. Time for him to retire before he ruins his story.

  4. Wilson has seven weeks to audition and showcase his super powers if he wants out. I think Wilson and Carroll are locked in an egotistical war of wills. I honestly don’t know which one of them is more deluded. Both desperately need to change.

  5. They really arent…

    The Roster needs an overhaul… its outdated… the defense is a sieve, and it actually looks like the offense is all built on Wilson making unsustainable plays.
