His numbers were above average for a starting QB last year.

If his name was Bob Green from the Colts and the Hawks got him on a "Prove it" contract to come in as a back up for the Seahawks...this place would be thrilled.

2023 stats...3000+ yards, 26 TDs and 8 INTs

"He can't run"
Manning, Marino and Montana couldn't run either.

With Pete, no. With M&M's ... Maybe

Absolutely not for me. There were reasons the team offloaded Wilson.

Wilson's agent is not liked at all by JS, and frankly I doubt that JS is a huge fan of RW.

The team is better off with Gee-No as a Steady Eddie than Mr. Unlimited and his oversized ego.

Love the highlights, brings back some good memories. But it is also proof why RW isn't as effective anymore. Especially not at $50 million per year.

Ah, yes. Just what we need for Macdonald, Grubb, and co. A malcontent with the most aggressive agent in football who already directly requested that ownership fire our current general manager.
Yeah - let’s kick ourselves in the balls because it may be an option.

I Don't want him back either but his numbers were better than Geno's last year ironically with less talent to work with. I know I might be the only one on the forum to think this but I hope he lands somewhere and plays well. I don't think he is the villian everyone paints him to be.

Russell Wilson’s better days are behind him. Too many limitations at this point of his career

I hope he comes back to Seattle as the visiting QB to take his lumps and a loss.

I hope he also comes back to Seattle a few years after his career is over to unveil his name on the ring of honor.

I have no desire to see him back as our starting QB. It's time for a fresh mindset and not dredging up the past.

No,

Being Honest but Russ always had a perfect deep ball.

But his weakness was that he can't complete a short pass or a mid pass with no protection, and he can't delay the passing game while using his legs to outrun the defenders.


And with run/run (Pass) it won't work.


With a fixed OL, and revamp RB group it all changes.
In fairness to RW3 he rarely had a decent OLine.

Having said that, he's never been a QB that can sit back in the pocket and throw downfield. That's not his thing. He's not tall enough at 5'11" to see over an OLine that is all guys at 6'4". Which is why his strength was to roll out in the flat, away from pressure, and look for an unobstructed throw downfield and if nothing was there tuck it and run.

When he lost his wheels, he lost a lot of what made him good.

Russ' problem is he's not who he thinks he is. He wants to be Drew Breeze, but he's not bang-bang quick with his reads like that. And he won't throw it until he sees the guy open. In order to get that kind of time he needs to be on the run.

No OL in the history of the world can block for him. And why would they want to? He's real quick to throw his OL under the bus for not giving him 8 seconds to make up his mind; that is when he's not blaming the defense for not giving him 12 3-and-outs so he can try out his patented no-YAC, moon ball deep throws.

Yeah, he has decent stats year in and year out, but that's because sacks are not considered a QB stat. Right now he's 4th behind Brady (338 games played), Big Ben (249), Aaron Rodgers (231). Russ has played 188 games and will become the most sacked quarterback in NFL history this coming year -- assuming he has a starting job somewhere.


Edit: added the link I used.

I'd be cool with him returning to Seattle with grace. Maybe raise the flag and attend some games.

But let's be real, his tenure in a Seahawk uniform is over.

So he is divorcing Ciara and hooking up with Grace Jones, she's a bit old for him I think.200
