Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Wednesday, September 7 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
At NFL.com, Gregg Rosenthal ranked quarterbacks based on which ones he would take heading into the season. Each week, his rankings will actually change based on how quarterbacks perform, but considering none have been played yet, Rosenthal went with an overall outlook to start.
In his "best of the best" category, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson made the top-5 list along with Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger. Here's what he had to say about Wilson in particular:
"Wilson played at an MVP level in the second half of last season. With a promising young receiver group in place that goes four deep, and a greater appreciation for winning before the snap, it wouldn't be a shock to see Wilson atop this list by season's end."
