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."
11/01/15 - QB Russell Wilson was responsible for 243 yards of offense, 210 passing and another 33 yards on the ground. He also threw a touchdown pass and led a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter, the 16th of his career and first this season.
09/28/15 - QB Russell Wilson completed 20 of 30 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown. The offensive line struggled to provide protection early. The Bears, who entered the game without a sack through two games, sacked Wilson four times.
09/21/15 - QB Russell Wilson represented almost all of the Seahawks' offense, producing 206 yards through the air and 78 yards on the ground. That is 284 of Seattle's 324 yards. Of the Seahawks' total, 134 came on back-to-back touchdown drives to start the second half. "We kept our tempo up," he said. "We were in and out of the huddle. We mixed some plays in there. We were in attack mode and made a lot of plays, with Luke Willson's one-handed catch to start it off. Some other guys made some plays down the field. And then you had Doug Baldwin score that touchdown, you had also Fred Jackson make the touchdown, which is exciting."
07/31/15 - QB Russell Wilson signed a four-year contract extension with the Seahawks Friday (July 31).
Seahawks fans had spent the offseason fretting over every seeming twist and turn in the Wilson contract drama, with speculation increasing throughout the summer that he could play the year without a new deal.
Wilson had set a deadline of the beginning of camp to reach a deal, with his agent Mark Rodgers confirming that Wilson did not want it hanging over his head.
After a week of talks, the two sides finally came to an agreement, with one of the key breakthroughs coming when the two sides agreed on a four-year extension, beginning in 2016. That will allow Wilson to hit free agency when he's 31.
The deal will pay Wilson $87.6 million with a $31 million signing bonus -- the most ever awarded by the Seahawks -- and $61.5 million in guarantees overall, the most in the NFL.
Wilson said news of the deal, which he received Thursday night around 11, was "exciting."
"I've always been confident it was going to happen, I never really doubted it was going to happen," he said.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll sang a similar tune.
"It was imminent, it was coming the whole time," he said. "We wanted to do it, it was his turn, you know how we've done it, you've watched this. We give guys opportunities and we try to take full advantage of nailing them when we can. It was a long process to get it done but now that it's over, it's good for him, it's good for our club."

10/26/14 - QB Russell Wilson is careful with many of his comments, so he came short of acting like he took any special joy in winning at Carolina. He played his first three years of college football for North Carolina State, so it's a bit of a homecoming game given the location in the same state. He has played in Charlotte in each of his three NFL seasons and has won each time.
