With 37,059 passing yards, 292 touchdowns, 104 wins, 24 fourth-quarter comebacks, and 32 game-winning drives, Wilson is the franchise leader in basically every category of note for a quarterback. But those totals are now finalized — barring a return to the Pacific Northwest in the late stages of his career — and Drew Lock will instead be taking snaps and preparing to hit Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf down the field.
At least those two standout receivers can help make his life far easier?
The Seahawks still have some intriguing pieces in Lockett, Metcalf, Noah Fant, Jordyn Brooks, and Jamal Adams, but it’s hard to see that translating into too many victories. Even a rookie class that checked in at No. 5 in Sportscasting’s official rankings, one highlighted by Charles Cross, Boye Mafe, and Kenneth Walker III, should pay dividends more in the long term than the short term.
Seattle hasn’t missed the playoffs in consecutive seasons since 2008-09, but that streak seems likely to be broken since last year’s 7-10 record feels more like a ceiling than a floor.
