Snubbed? Seahawks QB Russell Wilson not ranked top-10 in the NFL


Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro.

Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important – the present.

Forget about yesterday. Never mind tomorrow. Let’s talk about today.

Who are the best players in the NFL right now? Who can help a team win the Super Bowl this season? Who is writing a legacy with each passing week?

    hes a runningback, not a real qb.

    • Kizzy

      Oh and Kapernick is a real qb? Ha yea right! This list is a joke! Newton,rivers romo and kapernick didn’t have ( some don’t have) what it takes to get a Super Bowl ring! haters gonna hate!

        I agree 100% Kaepernick chokes when the time is needed to make a big play. not that im complaining but if russel wilson was on the other side of the ball he would not have thrown that ball to Sherman’s corner while the other WR was WIDE open… Romo is a choke artist soo much he over shadows Manning’s recognition to do the same thing. Newton started to get good at the END of the season.. Russel is still learning though i love the boy and what he can do with our mediocre Oline of last year he managed to win games missing 70% of the oline for half the season. Kaepernick, Romo, and Newton were only missing 1 or 2 people from their teams. Now if Russel and company have a healthy roster throughout the entire season is there is no way that there should be a doubt that we can repeat this year.
        49ner’s roster has become better, but they still have to deal with a QB that is in his 2nd full year as a starter. Romo.. he just has the bad luck of being in one of the worst managed teams next to the cleveland browns. Newton, fortunately has a glorious coach in Riverboat Ron, i love that he trademarked that nickname lol, But Russel has a bounty of coaches and a management staff that only other teams can dream of..

        I agree, I can’t believe they put Kaepernick on the list and Tony Romo..really? lmao. Russell Wilson should have been in Kaep’s spot.

      You are an idiot!

      • Bruce

        you must be a 49 fan

    • Itsallgood

      And you’re an ignorant idiot, not a real sports fan….

    • David

      Please become less ignorant before you speak. Go do some actual research into these guy’s stats. Wilson had the 4th highest YPA of any QB in the NFL, 7th in Passer Rating, tied for 9th in TD passes, which was more than 5 of the other QBs listed and 5th fewest Interceptions, which was fewer than 7 of the QBs listed. Not a running QB.

      dumb ass

  • Bob Tritt

    Why are you surprised? Seahawks are ALWAYS snubbed and have been for years.
    Die hard fan since 1976….. Bob T.

    • Lance Fullenwider

      That is true. So true.

  • Kyle Cruickshank

    The here and now is that Russell Wilson beat all those other QBs .They think because Seattle is stuck up in the corner they don’t deserve the recognition due. Wonder what they will rank him when he wins SB # 2 this season

  • Anonymous

    He should be number 1 if he just beat all these guys into the Superbowl!

  • Anonymous

    Regardless that Russell is running around as a quarter back he’s still a quarter back.

  • Paul

    Just show then that ring on your finger it’s not about what they think it’s about who wins

  • PattyB

    I can see putting Manning, Rogers, Brees and Brady above Wilson given their longevity. However, stats and results should factor in big enough to put Russell Wilson right up there in the top 5. More disrespect for the Seahawks. How can you call it anything else?

  • Dom N

    lol he will make the top 100 NFL list on NFL network

  • mike j

    I mean maybe if he had a ring, or tied peyton’s rookie season TD passes.. maybe then he would get credit.

    • Kim Mancera Rayne

      Ha!! Excellent point!!

    I love this list.wilson has had his struggles but also has great results. Defense wins champiomships but cant do it without a effective offense that gives them rest without turning the ball over a bunch and putting up enough points to win. Kaepernick makes the list but turns the ball over 3 times in 1 quarter for a game they should have won. But the reason I love this list is because its just another chip on wilsons shoulder for motivation. Maybe after they win their 3rd superbowl they will give him some credit.

  • Jammin

    Who cares…. He gotta ring and he’s about to get another one!!!

  • Shutdown44

    If Wilson is not in the top 5 or 6 you gotta be crazy, Santa Clara Forty-Winers will always be making excuses…we be making plan to head to Glendale in 2015….

  • fiasco

    Wilson does have wheels and uses them only when needed. A run first qb will.never make it. Wilson a pass first, that’s why hes so deadly…you forget he runs so when he does its huge.

  • Hawks_fan

    No skin off our back. Let the media ignore the Seahawks again & let the Seahawks creep up behind ever team & beat’em badly. Russell was the man last season. And he was one of a lot of guys who stepped up each week. Lookin forward to doin it again next year!

  • Go Hawks!

    Most of the quarterbacks on this list, especially Kaepernick, need to be on this list just so their fans think they are still a threat. Everyone knows about Wilson and what he can do, what he did over the past two years, and what he will do this year. If they don’t wanna give him the recognition of being on a list of a bunch of over rated quarterbacks, referring mainly to Kaepernick, that’s fine. Everyone knows who he is… the World Championship quarterback.

  • DaChucksta

    Russell Wilson and the Hawks will repeat and THIS time he will win Super Bowl MVP!!
