Anyone can talk about the success of Carson Wentz with the Philadelphia Eagles and their best record. They can talk about his second year being a major step and him possibly winning the MVP. Or fans can say that Tom Brady, who is 40 years old, continues to play at a higher level than before, and has an unbelievable touchdown to interception ratio. But has anyone seen what Russell Wilson is doing with the Seattle Seahawks?
An injured secondary combined with a horrendous offensive line is a recipe for success. However, Wilson is still doing magic things in difficult situations and should be considered the MVP by default for these reasons. It’s interesting to see that a 29-year-old, who benefited from a great defense since he started as a quarterback, is now carrying the Seahawks.
Wilson has 26 touchdowns and 8 interceptions, completing 62.4 percent of his passes. He also has 3 rushing touchdowns and continues to run for his life against pass rushers. Wilson continues to do whatever it takes in getting this team a playoff berth. Coach Pete Carroll is making sure the defense can play complementing football to his offense. But everyone knows deep inside that the team can’t go far without their franchise quarterback.
He already has tied with Eli Manning for the most touchdowns in the 4th quarterback. Whatever Wilson does until the regular season is over will boost his chances of winning an MVP. Stats will tell anyone that it should be Wentz or Brady, but the eyes say Wilson is going through a more tough task and is still putting up great numbers.
