Russell Wilson’s Roost? Hawks Reloaded.

Russell Wilson roost is back and it looks like it’ll be with a vengeance. It is an understatement, and so is the word reload. But for this Hawk, they could not have come at a better time. Wilson has doubled down and since doubt, tried to quell the noise. In a small sample, he has reason to leave.

A rather battered offensive line, a suspect defensive group, and having to play hero ball are some reasons. In addition, he suffered an injury that he had to play through in the 2022 season. But, don’t fret. There are also a handful of reasons that he could turn his nose up and stay put.

I’ll be breaking them down in this piece. Ready?

Russell’s Own Comments.

In his own, rather vague post, Russell may have addressed the team’s concerns. In a Tweet, the star quarterback said that “There is a light at the end of the tunnel.” Now, this could’ve been interpreted a couple of ways, but I believe Wilson did this intentionally because although he’s a media darling, he hates forms of controversy. He’s making a hefty chunk of change and he clearly loves the guys who’ve gone to war with him week in and out in his current place to roost. It’d be hard to see him in another uniform calling audibles.

Running Back Surge.

I don’t know about anyone else, but that two-game stretch screamed “promise” to me. One of them was against the lowly, punch-less, upstart Lions. But 23 carries for 190 is a heck of a stat line versus any franchise in the league. The caveat to this was that it carried into the season finale matchup with the playoff-bound Arizona Cardinals minus Deandre Hopkins. 29 for 170. Average that out and Rashaad Penny has clearly set himself apart from the horses in Seattle’s stables like Alex Collins. Russell Wilson would have a strong presence in the backfield to join him and take some pressure off on early downs.

Defend the Roost Grounds.

What? Has the defense come to some sort of fruition? It was often overshadowed by shaky offensive play calling and execution, but for the most part, Seattle had some shine on the grittier side of the ball. Especially according to Seahawks.com metrics, where they held the opponents to under 4 yards a carry. With the return of Jamal Adams, Quandre Diggs, and longtime stalwart Bobby Wagner, lookout. If they can hit on a few draft picks, look for them to be dangerous.

To wrap it all up, I personally think Russell will choose to stay under center past 2022 and beyond. To both fans and teammates alike, they are holding their collective breaths. Only time will tell the path of one of the elite passers in the game.
