    I think it was Dvontel who made this point last week about Aaron Rodgers and I think it has LOTS to do with Russell Wilson now. I think Wilson sees where Rodgers is at 37 and realizes that might be me if I don't speak up and demand they improve the OL and make changes to the offense.

    it was ok when they had an elite defense but they don't now, and if they try to build another one that means spending draft picks and FA money on defense, and NOT on offense. I think Wilson wants to make it apparent I'm not getting any younger spend some of that money on MY side of the ball or else.

    I think he’s overrated and he’s not going anywhere.

    Now, hm I dunno, Russ is 33 now, another 5-7 years on elite but than his playstyle will have a decline. His window is now and I think he knows it himself.

    So If I have a good D and an O-line in place, I trade for him and don't look back. But if I have a problematic Oline no D to speak off, I wouldn't trade for him and in Seahawks case I would clearly look into a trade that involves a way younger QB that maybe is not yet there but with 7 years to go till he is as old as Russ (Watson is 26) I can see a benefit to build my Team around a younger frachise QB and maybe get even a pick or two to support my new franchise QB even more.


    That said, I don't think Watson would fair that well in the NFC Best and would be a downgrade, maybe not only for now, but on the long run. So would I trade, probably not, since if I couldn't help my "old" QB how in the world I'm confident that I get that finally right after 9 years ....

    He's getting pounded by the lack of an OL. I am sure he is sick of that

    Russell knows how brutal it is to play the Rams/49ers twice a year. Two legit SB contenders.

    Even tougher for him if Keim/Bidwell ever got their act together.
