Russell Wilson Is An All-Time Great QB

Russell Wilson, 0 MVPs, 0 MVP votes, 0 respect. He is one of the best quarterbacks I’ve ever seen, and he is showing himself to be the MVP so far this year. Russell Wilson at every stage of his career has consistently been elite and has carried the Seahawks into relevancy.

He is underrated, has been elite, and has been one of the best QBs in the world since he’s gotten here. How is it that he’s never gotten the consideration he deserves? How is it that he’s never considered an all-time great? This is because of narrative, as Wilson is better than 99% of Quarterbacks you can bring up statistically.

Consistently Elite Every Year

Russell Wilson’s worst season was 2016 where he had 21 TDs, 11 INTs, and 3.6 rushing yards per attempt. Pretty odd for an elite QB right? Well statistically speaking he was probably better than Aaron Rodgers in 2019 where Rodgers made the Pro Bowl. He had a better EPA, better QBR, better passer rating, and this is despite Wilson having more sacks than Rodgers. So what does this say about Russell Wilson?

He’s been a top 10 QB since he entered the league, and in every year outside of his 2016, he’s had an above 95 passer rating. Every year you can write him down for a below 2% interception percentage and above 6% touchdown percentage with 500 yards rushing.

Carrying A Franchise

You think Aaron Rodgers or Matthew Stafford have no help? How about Russell Wilson only having 1 season having less than 40 sacks, where he was sacked 33 times in 2012, his rookie season. His receiving core has always been suspect before this year and he’s obviously never had a real offensive line.

There is no way you can argue that Wilson gets a lot of help, yet he’s never won less than 9 games in a season and he’s have 10 or more wins in ever year but 2017. Even when he lost to the Patriots, he had a stellar game until the end. He’s been the sole purpose the Seahawks have not been below .500 in a while, and he’s done more for the Seahawks than any other player on any other team.

Where Does Russell Wilson Rank All Time?

Honestly, if he gets himself an MVP this year (which his 9 TD start might get him) then he could get himself into top 10 all time talks. He could grab another Superbowl with Jamal Adams coming in and how great he’s looked. This is a guy who can get the job done with the right pieces. Right now I think he’s one of the best to ever do it and a Hall of Fame shoe in. He has the Superbowl, the stats, and while he doesn’t have the MVP, neither does Brees. Wilson is also only 31, so if he has 6 more prime seasons and collects and MVP and a Superbowl, he’s in that top 10 for sure.

Evander Holyfield – The Real Deal

Boxers have always had nicknames; sometimes chosen by themselves, sometimes bestowed upon them by the public or some other third party. The point of a nickname has either been to in some way highlight the intimidation factor of the boxer, or to help with the marketing of the fighter through the “catchiness” of the name. There’ve been some doozies, too. Jake “The Raging Bull” LaMotta, “Sugar” Ray Robinson, Seales, or Leonard, “Iron” Mike Tyson, or...
