Russell Wilson, out of MVP talk and into MVP contention.
At a whopping twenty-two touchdowns and one interception. Can I type that louder? Twenty-Two touchdowns! One interception! The Seattle Seahawks are 7-2, and with Russ torching Tampa Bay for 5 touchdowns and 378 passing yards Russ has moved out of MVP talk and into leading the MVP conversation. The contenders are obvious. Russell Wilson, Christine McCaffrey, and Patrick Mahomes. Russ is dominating and is dangerously close to his first MVP season. His numbers are impressive to say the least. With his gaudy statistics on only half the season, he could theoretically throw for 5,000 yards and 50+ touchdowns. He's already at 2,500. I get it, he probably won't, but an MVP season is never normal. Russ is thirty years old, he is playing the best football of his life and it's absolutely mint. He is the Seattle Seahawks offense, nobody can argue otherwise. He is the captain of the ship and the storm is never to big for Russ to navigate. The goal is a championship season and being the MVP, hard to imagine this not happening. He champions play after play this year staying poised and collected while demonstrating immense effort and intensity cranking up the magnitude as the game goes akin to a boxer in a long fight. Round 7 Russ. Ding Ding.
