Friday Round-Up: Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch in MVP conversation?
Good morning, 12th Man.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - (Blue) Friday, November 22 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Dan Graziano of ESPN.com has his latest MVP Watch, and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (No. 3) and running back Marshawn Lynch (No. 9) appear on his Top 10. Wilson appeared at the same spot a week ago, but Lynch is a new addition to the poll. On Lynch, Graziano writes, "This is the guy for whom Russell Wilson would vote if he had a vote, which he doesn't, but that's just the kind of dude Wilson is. He's a team player whose own awesomeness doesn't impress him as far as you know, and he's smart enough to realize what he's got in a backfield mate with Lynch. There are going to be days when Wilson needs to plug all of the variables into his own mental computer and figure out the exact parameters of the next four throws he needs to win the game. And there are going to be days when they're up big because of special things Wilson did in the first half and the way to win is to hand it off to a running back who can't be tackled or tired in spite of an over-reliance on Skittles as his primary source of nutrition."
