Russell Wilson appeared on NFL Total Access on Thursday to discuss the Seattle Seahawks’ offensive goals for 2021 after a blazing-hot start to the 2020 season that propelled the team to 5-0 turned into a multitude of struggles over the second half that culminated in their disappointing postseason loss against the Los Angeles Rams.

Wilson addressed his issue with turnovers throughout 2020 while still maintaining elite offensive production, especially regarding touchdowns. He expressed his hope to lead the offense to a new level with assistance from new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron.

“Obviously, you never want to give the ball up. I think that’s something historically I’ve usually been great at. So, I’m not concerned about that, that’s just a fact,” Wilson said. “We’ve been able to score a lot of touchdowns and do all that but if we can eliminate several of those, I think that’ll help. I think also, too, Shane and I, we’ve been talking this offseason about just really being able to go after it and not be timid about it and just really use all of our players in all different facets, all different ways, really causing havoc for the defense as much as possible.”

Wilson stated that the offense must excel in all aspects, and be explosive like in the first five weeks of 2020.

“I think that moving forward, we want to be explosive on offense, we have to be able to be explosive in scoring. And that’s running it, throwing it, that’s doing all the things that we want to be able to do creatively and everything else,” Wilson said. “But also knowing that, as our defense is playing great too, our offense really has to kick it in too. And I think that there was a bump in the road there where we kinda got dinged up and that kinda messed us up. I started turning it over a little bit more than normal, I’m not a guy who gives the ball away too much and so, I think that was a bump in the road and so, we just have to get back to trying to go for what we know how to do best.

“Hopefully this season coming up, we can go win that Super Bowl.”

The Seahawks will have to play up to the full potential of their offense and continue their strong defensive performance from the second half of 2020 to have a chance to compete for a title in 2021.
