Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, May 25 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Wilson Gives Seahawks Best QB Situation
Patrick Daugherty at RotoWorld.com ranks every quarterback situation in the NFL from 1-32, and behind the 27-year-old Russell Wilson, Daugherty says the Seattle Seahawks are No. 1 when it comes to the League's most important position.
Daugherty ranked Wilson at No. 3 around this time last year behind Andrew Luck (No. 1) and Aaron Rodgers (No. 2), but here's what he had to say about the fifth-year signal caller's ascension to the top spot:
*Russell Wilson was the No. 75 overall pick of the 2012 draft. Four years later, he's made 74 straight starts, and is coming off a stratospheric 2015 that cemented his standing amongst the elite of the elite. You could certainly argue that Wilson still isn't as good as Aaron Rodgers, but you can't argue his age — five years younger. That's not to say youth alone is Wilson's claim to the top spot. Whereas Rodgers struggled with a bad supporting cast last season, Wilson has consistently thrived with them. He's also been held back by a run-first scheme that finally gave way to his unique gifts in 2015. Marshawn Lynch slept through his victory lap, so Wilson took the reins of the offense and put it on his back. Wilson has no missing pieces. He's durable bordering on unbreakable, has made 10 postseason starts — including two Super Bowls — and gotten better each year. He is the envy of the league at its most important position. He is the most irreplaceable player in football, and the No. 1 reason the Seahawks will be challenging for Super Bowls for years to come. *
Tweet Of The Day
Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from us - @Seahawks, as we share short video of a few eagles flying above Virginia Mason Athletic Center's practice fields on Tuesday. At one point, six or seven birds were seen sailing overhead while the Seahawks were in the middle of their second set of Organized Team Activities. The situation has led to a fun social media exchange with Eagles, you know, that NFL team in Philadelphia.
