Russell Wilson was on fire with Seattle Seahawks last season. The former Wisconsin man was one of the finest QBs in the league last year.
Had Lamar Jackson not had such a stellar season in 2019, it would have been Wilson who would have bagged the NFL MVP award.
Russell boasted some solid figures with the Seahawks last year. He threw for 4,000+ yards with a pass completion percentage of 66.1% in 2019.
Seahawks coach, Pete Carroll expects Wilson to pick up right where he left off last year when the 2020 NFL season starts in September.
Carroll featured alongside 710 ESPN Seattle’s John Clayton on Friday to talk about Russ Wilson and the Seahawks.
“Russell is at the best of his game that he’s ever been and his command, his control, and understanding of everything we can put forth on him allows him to be, I think, at the best he’s ever been.
“And we want him to have more opportunities to be the factor of the game and control the game.
“But John, in just football in general, that doesn’t mean that you throw the football all the time to do that. We need to be a really good, functioning team that’s hard to beat because we’re so good at the things we do.
“That means that you have to have balance in your game,” Carroll said.
Russell Wilson had some insane stats in 2019. One of them was his ability to throw deep passes from the pocket. He was one of the best in the league last year and will hope to repeat the same this time out as well.
“We’re not going to take anything away from Russell’s ability to produce – we want to maximize his opportunities. So whatever this ‘Russell cook’ thing is about, I don’t know what it’s about, but he is at his best, he is in the most command he’s ever been, and he and (offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer) and the offensive staff have worked this offseason to a point where we’re ready to unveil it, the best version of us. And that means the best version of Russ,” Carroll further added.
