A magician who delivers great spells

Russell has displayed tremendous talent throughout his 10 season career, which is obviously evident in the record charts. However, having lost his agility over the years, many may still not consider him much of a scrambler these days, but he has progressed exponentially in his passing game.

Although during his matchup with the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday, he showed exceptional abilities with his legs by scrambling twice into the end zone. Which is sort of a rare moment when talking about the Seahawks QB.

However, his scrambling prowess during his Niners game gained him much appreciation from the Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and a name among one of the greatest of all times to become the fastest to reach 100 victories in the NFL.

“That’s why I play the game, is to win,” Wilson said. “To be in great company with some amazing players in the history of the game. I remember going to Peyton Manning’s passing academy when I was young, and some of the other guys who have gotten 100 wins, it’s pretty special.”
