His defense props him up right? But he still has had to work behind one of the worst pass blocking units year in and year out since his rookie year AND play with an offense that is basically devoid of weapons aside from Marshawn Lynch.
Name me one QB that could do the things Wilson does behind such a putrid line? Hm? Maybe Aaron Rodgers? But probably not, he's pretty mobile but really does not have the speed, quickness and elusiveness Wilson has to extend plays.
So Wilson works around the deficiencies on the Seattle Offense right? Right?
Then why can't Andrew Luck or Peyton Manning, guys who are SUUUUUUUUCH great QBs work around the deficiencies of their teams? Hm? I mean take Luck's Colts for example, we all know that their defense is hot garbage, right? And their running games leave a lot to be desired right?
But his offensive line graded out as a top 10 pass blocking unit, he has a ton of weapons to throw to right? More so than most QBs in this league have. Why if he's so much better than Wilson can he not overcome the deficiencies his team has?
Why can't Peyton who has THE BEST pass blocking offensive line and arguably the best group of receivers in the NFL as well as a solid run game and a great defense not get it done? What's his ******* excuse? Huh? What's BEEN his excuse all these ******* years he's put up monster stats in season but just never gets it done in the postseason?
He's almost always had a top-5 offensive line, he's had HOF receivers, he's had solid defenses, solid RBs, whats his ******* excuse?
My point is this, yes, Russell Wilson enjoys the advantage of playing with quite possibly the greatest defense in NFL history, but his offense? His offense outside of Lynch is complete ****, his offensive line is GARBAGE. Great run blocking unit, yes, but absolutely dog **** at protecting their QB. He makes it work, why don't the other guys who are supposedly better make it ******* work?
Why? No team is going to be 100% perfect. Some QBs have to deal with a defense that can stop opposing offenses, other QBs have to deal with a non-existent run game, or a shortage of receivers, or a poor offensive line, or a ****** special teams unit that's always giving him poor field position, or a combination of these things. Some guys have really no glaring weaknesses on their teams, like Peyton.
But nobody ever wants to slight Peyton for being unable to extend plays, nobody ever talks about how come postseason, when defenses put QB's under a microscope and attack according to that QB's limitations he simply NEVER has an answer for the pass rush. Nobody ever wants to talk about how Peyton NEEDS a team to be built a certain way and has needed the same basic build dating back to his days as a Colt or else he can't function.
But yet Wilson gets slighted because his team's defense is good? He doesn't deserve any credit for working around the deficiencies his team does have?
There's a double standard here and you guys know it. It's ******* pathetic and the narrative is getting old, real ******* old.
