      I’ve lost respect for him with his banter and bitching about his “situation” in Seattle. He gladly took an insane contract which crippled their franchise with a contract and an inability to stay competitive. It’s never about one player. It’s about the team and the defense.

      Most years it’s about the defense in the end. The offense just needs to protect the ball. Not turn it over.

      I think he’s earned a bitch or 2. He’s been sacked the most since he’s been in the league and he wants the team to address that.

        I think he needs to take a little bit of credit when it comes to the sack numbers. Sometimes you just need to get rid of the damn ball and not run around waiting for something to happen.

      Is he willing to adjust his salary so they can pay some OL?

        Why should he have to restructure his contract? Maybe they should use more resources to find better linemen to block for him.

      Russell doesn’t care about your respect. If you read the article the offense changed to be more conservative and they stopped scoring.

      Russell is acting selfish. He isn’t offering to restructure to get oline help. He just wants a trade it seems.

      Players do it all the time Brady did about his WRs in NE.

      This was inevitable. His huge contract limits what the team can do. He crying all the way to the bank. He should give some of it back, Ciara’s account is probably bigger and make up for it.

      As long as he doesn’t end up with the Saints, I don’t give a shit. Not like the Saints could afford his contract anyways.

      He would leave Seattle for the Raiders or Bears? How would his situation improve that much other than possibly more money?

      FBO Oline rankings, Seahawks

        2018: run = 12th, pass block = 30th
        2019: run = 16th, pass block = 24th
        2020: run = 10th, pass block = 30th

      PFF ranks the 2020 Oline as 16th best. ::: raising shoulders :::

      People forget that we were going to re-sign Winston to a $32+ mil a year deal if we missed out on plan A, Brady, or plan B, Bridgewater. Four of our five starters in 2020 were all drafted by the Bucs. One 1st rd (RT Wirfs), two 2nd rd’ers (LT Smith, LG Marpet), and a 3rd rd (RG Cappa).

      FBO Oline rankings, Bucs

        2018: run = 31st, pass block = 15th
        2019: run = 23rd, pass block = 22nd
        2020: run = 9th, pass block = 3rd

      Thank goodness Marpet got that surgery to fix his hips, iirc, between 2019 and 2020 offseason. I think Wilson would love a #15th ranked pass blocking unit. LoL

      Positional spending, from OTC

      2020

        Bucs: 6th, $40 mil
        Seahawks: 26th, $26 mil

      2021, Projected

        Bucs: 8th, $45 mil
        Seahawks: 31st, $23 mil

      Maybe Wilson does have legitimate reasons to complain.

      In 2018, Seattle spent a 1st round pick on RB Penny at 27th overall. They could have drafted OT Corbett, LG Will Hernandez, RG/RT Braden Smith, or C/LG James Daniels. The Hawks have declined Penny’s fifth year option.

      Yeah. The Hawks have drafted like shiat since the decline of the legion of Boom. Should Wilson be happy enough to JAG it out on a Seattle team that is missing too many pieces over the next few years? Wilson would make any of the teams he rattled off contenders.

      Seattle’s flat out neglected Russell Wilson for years.

      In the years they won the SB, their Oline was stout with a young Russell Okung at LT and Max Unger at C, who they later traded away for Jimmy Graham.

      Since then, they’ve pissed away all their late first round picks when they could have built a strong unit like the Saints did with all their late 1st rounders in the same time period.

      For an organization touted by most as one of the best run in the league, they’ve sure done a shit job at drafting since the fall of the LOB. Without Russell Wilson, Seattle is a 2-14 team.

      I’m not a fan of how the front office runs this team. They’re the posterboys for ‘outsmarting’ other teams in the draft. And it’s now coming back to bite them.

      Jordyn Brooks, LJ Collier, Rashaad Penny, 2 firsts for an in-the-box safety (which clearly didn’t elevate the defense the way they thought it would).

      To top things off, after putting up an astounding number of points, midseason they suddenly take the ball out of Russ’s hands and change to a conservative approach? And then double down on that conservative approach by showing the OC (who disagreed with that conservative approach) the door?

      I’d be kinda pissed too.
