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.
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
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.
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.
