Russell Wilson headlines Pro Football Focus’...


Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson put together perhaps the best season of his masterful career in 2019, which resulted in a 90.9 passing grade from Pro Football Focus – the top mark in the NFL.

That was enough for Wilson to earn an All-Pro nod from Pro Football Focus, who ranked him ahead of MVP favorite Lamar Jackson on their annual list.

“Lamar Jackson is the presumptive league MVP, and his development this year has been phenomenal, but what Russell Wilson has been able to do while dragging a sub-par offense has been remarkable,” PFF wrote in their article. “Wilson’s grade and PFF WAR has been incredible all season long, and even when the offense cooled down the stretch, he was still making big plays only to be let down by his supporting cast. Wilson finished the year with six more big-time throws than any other quarterback, and he had just 11 turnover-worthy plays to balance those high-end plays.”

While PFF loved Wilson and his performance last year, they weren’t big on the rest of Seattle’s offense. In fact, they ranked the Seahawks offensive line 27th out of 32 teams – far and away the worst mark among teams in the playoffs.

Wilson finished the regular season with 4,110 passing yards and a 31-to-five touchdown-to-interception ratio – despite leading the NFL with 48 sacks taken.

Wilson will need to be on his game if Seattle wants to advance in the playoffs this year, where they’ll take on an Eagles squad that won four games in a row to earn the top spot in the NFC East.
