Cat Crave: Russell Wilson has always been a very solid quarterback. What has he done this year to put himself in the MVP conversation?
12th Man Rising: This answer would have been easier about five weeks ago when Wilson was playing better. In the last four games, he has thrown an interception in every game and seems just a bit off. But when the Seahawks needed Wilson to carry them, before the defense was playing better, he did. But Tyler Lockett got injured and Will Dissly was hurt and Wilson hasn’t played as well. He is no longer an MVP candidate but he is still one of the better quarterbacks in the league because he is accurate and smart. And a lot of games come down to if Wilson plays great, Seattle wins. If he is the slightest bit off, Seattle loses.
What is one strength of the Seattle Seahawks offensively?
Besides Wilson, it is Chris Carson. Carson has over 1,000 rushing yards this year – his second season in a row with as much – and a lot of times seems to add on 3 or 4 yards just by sheer will. Carson has an issue with fumbles this year which is not good, but his style of running, much like Marshawn Lynch, is exactly what Pete Carroll wants in a running back and fits the Seahawks offense perfectly.
