Draft Scout Russell Wilson News
01/20/16 - QB Russell Wilson is entrenched as the starter and became one of the league's best in 2015 after signing a new contract last offseason.
01/17/16 - QB Russell Wilson took responsibility for Seattle's miserable start. He threw two interceptions in the first 16 minutes. "We got behind, and I take the blame for that," Wilson said. "I put us behind the eight-ball a little bit. But we came back in the right way, in the right manner with the right attitude."
He finished 31-for-48 for 366 yards with three touchdown passes and the two interceptions.
12/27/15 - QB Russell Wilson saw his streak of 168 consecutive passes without an interception end Sunday. He was picked off by St. Louis CB Trumaine Johnson, the first pick Wilson has thrown since the Nov. 5 loss to Arizona. Wilson also threw two touchdown passes, putting him one short of the franchise record of 32 in a season (Dave Krieg, 1984).
12/14/15 - QB Russell Wilson passed for 292 yards and five touchdowns against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, with three more touchdowns to Doug Baldwin and two to Tyler Lockett. Over the past four games, he has completed 89 of 118 passes - a whopping 75 percent completion percentage - for 1,171 yards (293 yards per game) with 16 touchdowns and zero interceptions.
That's an aggregate passer rating of 145.9 over those four games.
"It's the best that we've seen for both guys," coach Pete Carroll said of Wilson and Baldwin. "They seem to be in sync in a really great way. The opportunities are there, and they're taking advantage of stuff and making the most of it. It's exciting to see and really fun to see these guys."
According to STATS, Inc., Wilson is the first quarterback since 1960 to post a passer rating of 138.5 or greater in four consecutive starts. He became the first Seahawks quarterback to ever have four straight games with at least three touchdown passes. Only Tom Brady (2007), Peyton Manning (2013-14) and Aaron Rodgers (2014) have also had stretches of four straight games with at least three touchdowns and no interceptions.
11/04/15 - QB Russell Wilson has been sacked a league-high 31 times through eight weeks despite the clean sheet by the offensive line on Sunday. However, it was a positive step forward for a group that has been maligned all season for its struggles. "We protected the quarterback today," coach Pete Carroll said. "We legitimately did it. Russell was able to stand in there and do his thing."
