Russell Wilson looked like a shadow of himself in the game with the Cardinals.

The NFL model for parity works, is even better after the last CBA and rookie salary cap, not necessarily for the rookies but for competition. Our division sucked, accumulated top draft orders for few years, rose to the top and then declines. It works it really does.

im not sticking a fork in them yet, they are one Great running back from competing next year.

Wow!

Just for clarification, this discussion is about the Seahawks. EVEN IF they secured a great RB for next season, and lose Russel Wilson, how does that make them more competitive? Do you think Geno Smith can replace Wilson's production? And that is without mentioning their OL which has been neglected, and is dreadful, since Pete Carroll arrived! Wilson AND a great RB wouldn't make them competitive next year

Oh, and their defense is no longer elite either; and Bobby Wagner isn't getting any younger!

I think Wilson has plenty in the tank, is hurt, but all need a run game. Would fare better in a different division, but wouldn’t we all. Time will tell

I think they get beat by WFT too. Their defense has upped it's game, their offense is finding it's stride and Washingtons D line is going to rip the Seattle O line to shreds.

He did. I rewatched parts of that game and couldn't help noticing how passive he was about taking sacks.

In the past if an edge defender sprinted at him full speed like Isiah did on his sack, Russell would make him look like a fool. Let the guy get inches away, squirt out at the last second, make a big play with his legs or a demoralizing completion. Kind of like what Kyler does now. I saw none of that from Wilson. Either more than his hand is hurt, he's slowing down, or he's saving himself for the next team.

Here is the problem with Russell Wilson who is just 33 years in his 10the NFL season.

In nine seasons, he's been sacked 394 times, an average of 43.8 sacks per season—more than any other QB since the 1970 merger. He's on track to become the most-sacked QB in league history in three years, surpassing Brett Favre's total of 525.

Seattle has always had a crappy OL during Wilson's career. I saw that he has been sacked an additional 20 times this season so its now at 414. Bottom line is he has been beaten up and is no longer the player that he once was.

Which is why, as a top priority, we can't ever let that happen to Kyler.
He got dinged last year and it blew our season.
He's out for a month this year, so far.

O Line, all the time.
