Right now the best player in all of football is Russell Wilson. The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a thrilling 40-34 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Wilson was in top form in that game. The dual-threat quarterback threw for 378 yards and 5 touchdowns proving he’s a cut above everyone else.
In fact Wilson has been so good that his total for the season is now up to 22 touchdowns and only 1 interception. Which essentially means that Wilson is lighting it up through the air. The other thing he does really well is protect the football. Seattle doesn’t beat themselves and it’s because they hardly make any mistakes. Russell Wilson sets a great precedent for the other players in that locker room with his own play and everyone else seems to follow suit. So there’s two main factors that make up the player Wilson is. First and foremost he’s an electric playmaker who can create opportunities that many other quarterbacks can’t make. Then there’s Wilson’s leadership and how good of a job he does keeping this team poised. Seattle’s only focus is winning football games and they bounce back from letdowns very quickly. Part of that is because Pete Carroll is such an optimist himself. Therefore Russell Wilson is the perfect fit for Carroll’s system and those two have been having success ever since. Now it seems like the 30 year old (Wilson) will win his first MVP award and he certainly deserves it.
