Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson is no stranger to success in the National Football League and Wilson seems to be getting better as the season progresses on. Over the last two weeks the 28 year old QB has thrown 7 touchdowns and just 1 interception. It’s play like that which has led the Seahawks to a 5-2 record and this team should make their 6th straight playoff appearance at the end of the season. The front office recently brought in Duane Brown to bolster their offensive line which will result in more time to throw the football. Wilson should be able to make the most out of that additional pass protection and if things breakdown we all know this guy can make plays on the run. Russell Wilson is one of the most elusive signal callers in the league and he has made a ton of big plays for this franchise. Really it’s about Wilson handling the mental pressure that comes with the big games late in the postseason. If Wilson can handle the stressful environments he will face in the playoffs like he has the last two weeks there’s a great chance Seattle could get back to the Super Bowl. This team still has a tremendous defense and the offense has went from a 12th ranked unit in 2016 to a 7th ranked unit this year. There’s just a better offensive line upfront and those small improvements can yield big results down the road. Seattle will also need to win the NFC West in order to secure the best seed possible. Right now the Los Angeles Rams are the biggest threat to the Seahawks so it will be up to Wilson to put points on the board and claim this division. One thing is for certain if Russell Wilson is in top form there’s no telling how far he can take this team? A Vince Lombardi Trophy has to be the goal though.
