Instant Lookback: Bobby Wagner Records 100+ Tackles for Ninth Straight Season

"We're looking at a Hall-of-Fame football player."


The average Monday Night Football viewer probably noticed Bobby Wagner's spectacular first quarter pass breakup deep in the secondary, disrupting Carson Wentz's long ball intended for Dallas Goedert.

But what they might not have noticed was that the ever-present linebacker also reached an outstanding season mark for a defensive player. A mark that has become something of an expectation for him.

With his five total tackles in the Week 12 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Wagner now has over 100 tackles for the ninth straight season.

"We're looking at a Hall-of-Fame football player," Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said in his post-game press conference. "We maybe don't realize how great a player he is and how hard it is to do what he's doing. He's an all-timer."

Russell Wilson echoed: "He's a Hall-of-Fame football player. He's a Hall-of-Fame friend."
