Russell Wilson has been terrific for the Seattle Seahawks over the last couple of weeks. The 31-year-old was pivotal in the opening week win over Atlanta Falcons. He topped that performance with another impressive display against New England Patriots last weekend.
Wilson completed 52 of his 63 attempted passes over the course of the first two games, with nine passing TDs against 11 incompletions. The former North Carolina man is expected to challenge for the NFL MVP award this year, and a veteran NFL coach backs Wilson to bag the award.
Veteran NFL coach, Bill Belichick, has a keen eye for talent. So when he heaps praise on an NFL player, he knows what he’s talking about. The six-time Super Bowl-winning coach went on a Russell Wilson appreciation sermon after his side’s loss to the Seahawks.
He said, “This guy’s a tremendous player (who’s) maybe underrated by the media or the fans … I don’t really see anybody better than this player. He can do everything. He’s got obviously great leadership, playmaking skills. He plays very well in the most critical situations in the game.”
“His passing numbers are extraordinary. You could put him up against anybody since he’s been in the league, literally anybody, in any category.”
“His winning percentage is impressive. He’s there for every game, never missed a game. I don’t think there’s a better deep ball passer in the league in terms of decision making and accuracy. He attacks literally every inch of the field… and then you have to try to tackle him, which that’s very difficult too,” Belichick said via Toronto Sun.
The Seahawks remain unbeaten after the first two weeks of the 2020 NFL season. However, they will next host Dallas Cowboys at the CenturyLink Field this weekend in a crunch tie.
The Cowboys won their first game of the season last weekend by beating Atlanta Falcons with a 40-39 scoreline. The Dak Prescott vs Russell Wilson battle will be fun to watch for sure. Make sure you don’t miss it.
