Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Friday, August 23 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Some call him ‘Mr. Fourth Quarter.’ Perhaps, ‘Mr. Clutch?’ We all know how ‘dangerruss’ he can be when the clock is ticking down and the ball’s in his hands.
Pro Football Focus tweeted out a graphic on Thursday that listed five Seahawks players with the highest grade in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Russell Wilson topped the list with a rating of 85.1. Following QB1, was wideout Tyler Lockett (83.1), running back Chris Carson (75.0), offensive tackle George Fant (74.7), and offensive tackle Duane Brown (72.8).
As PFF mentioned in the copy of their Tweet, it’s “no surprise who led the #Seahawks in the 4th last season.” These numbers were calculated using data from the 2018 season for offensive players who played a minimum of 75 snaps.
According to a January article published by NFL.com, Wilson is “tied for the most 4th-quarter comebacks (21) and game-winning drives (27) since entering the league in 2012, including [the] postseason. One of his most memorable 4th-quarter comebacks happened in the 2014 postseason. Down 7-19 in the fourth quarter, the Seahawks came back to beat the Packers in overtime and clinch the NFC Championship.”
Pro Football Focus is a notable website in the football community that thoroughly analyzes the National Football League and NCAA Division-I football. The analysis is extremely in-depth as it “covers every player on every play of every game for the most comprehensive analysis of player performance,” says Profootballfocus.com.
