Russell Wilson is doing it again.
He is putting together another heroic season, after the Seattle Seahawks got off to another wobbly start and found their season hanging in the balance. Wilson is making another late push for what should be very serious consideration for the MVP award. He is single-handedly winning games and performing like a one-man army many weeks, and should he vanquish a Murder’s Row type schedule in December – which has always been his best month, as, alas, he is nothing if not clutch – and continues to build upon Sunday night’s defeat of Philadelphia, then he just might be in line to get his hands on that hardware.
As for right now, I will spot you 40-year-old quarterbacking freak-of-nature Tom Brady as the front-runner, and I could understand going with second-year phenom Carson Wentz as well. Could make a strong case for either as the leader. But after that, you can’t convince me anyone else is more worthy than Wilson, and history would tell us that Wilson is the strongest of finishers, who gets better as the games carry more import. We’ll see if Wentz suffers any sort of sophomore slump with the Eagles pushing for the one seed (he had a short college resume and this is unchartered territory for him), and we’ll see if Brady hits any sort of wall and if in fact he is human and not a superior football cyborg of some sort. But I certainly wouldn’t bet against Wilson at this point.
Let’s be real about the Seahawks; this is a flawed team utterly reliant upon Wilson to do extraordinary things more often than not. They have had no running game at all this season, funneling through backs due to injury and ineffectiveness. They rank 22nd in yards per carry (3.9) and second-to-last with just four rushing touchdowns. But that doesn’t tell the real story. Wilson leads the Seahawks with 71 carries. And he leads them with 432 rushing yards (more than double the next best ball carrier, Chris Carson, who has been out injured since Week 4). And he has three of their four rushing TDs. So, Seattle’s running backs have amassed just 801 yards on 245 carries – paltry average of 3.3 yards per carry – with one rushing TD. CBS Sports
