Good morning 12s, and happy Blue Friday! Here's a look at what's out there today, October 1, about your Seattle Seahawks.
Kay Adams Expecting Big Game From Russell Wilson In Week 4
Heading into Week 4 of the NFL season, the Seahawks find themselves in last place in the NFC West at 1-2, two games behind the undefeated Rams and Cardinals (3-0). It's hard to call any game a must-win this early in the season — especially with the league's new 17-game regular season schedule — but this Sunday's matchup with the San Francisco 49ers (2-1) will have big implications on the race for the playoffs and the NFC West crown. And with the season on the line, Good Morning Football host Kay Adams believes Russell Wilson will get the job done on the road.
On Friday's episode of Good Morning Football, Adams — like her co-host Peter Schrager a week ago — chose Wilson as the player she thinks will shine brightest in Week 4. "Not DangeRuss, but MiracuRuss," Adams said. "That's the level that we're at." Adams noted that while the Seahawks' defense has been lackluster at times and the results of Shane Waldron's offense have been mixed, Wilson has been the most consistent piece of the team on either side of the ball with seven touchdown passes, zero interceptions, and an average of nearly 300 yards per game.
"I don't know what it is he can do, I just know this is like save your season, rescue mode," Adams says. "Unfortunately there's no margin for error in the NFC West, and it's the Niners this week. You have to beat the Niners, and you have to be the brightest star on the field."
In 18 career regular season games against the 49ers, Wilson is 14-4 with 32 touchdowns, nine interceptions, and a passer rating of 99.4.
