    Russ just needs to shut his mouth worry about only his contract and play the game. You are not the Head Coach or the GM you are the Player. You want pats on your back for doing what you are paid to do. Are you in high school looking for mommy’s approval cmon grow up and stop whining about just wanting to be heard and included in decisions and Pete’s comforting words.

    Here is the thing ? Grass always looks better on the other side . Brady jumped too the Bucks cause he was smart the team was set up but quarterback but you look around there isn't a team set up like that this year could change next year or year after that Pete Carroll knows that so I say Russ is staying for now

    If Russell stays he will regret it for the rest of his life. He doesn’t want to be there, but he is torn on doing the right thing. Every one knows his wife probably doesn’t enjoy living in Seattle.

    Russell Wilson is just another athlete who lies about his intentions (if he doesn’t do what he intends oh well that’s life) I believe he means he says. I’m happy and I think he’ll be a seahawk for a long time to come.

      i can't even begin to recall how many times I've seen Seahawk fans say they should trade Russ in the comments YEARS before Russ's agent put out that list but sure they should trade Russ and Seattle can go back to the 11 play off appearances in 36 seasons v the 8 playoff appearances in 9 seasons with RW. Talk about lookin a gift horse in the mouth

    This dude is a idiot. He was a Free Agent and wanted to know before he signed if Russell really wanted to leave. Wouldn't any of you want to know who the QB is going to be before you sign a contract as a FA? I bet Adams will ask Russell the same question before he signs a new contract so he won't be playing for the Seattle Jets and go back to losing 10 game's a season. I bet Lockett asked him too. But this idiot said he needs to hear Russell say exactly what he told Dunlap to belive he'll stay and he said he still doesn't belive it?

    Seahawks is not Trading Russell Wilson. The Seahawks trading Bobby Wagner, and 4th round 2022 the Cleveland Browns 2021 picks 26, 58 and 110.

    • Brian Smith

      @Junior Miles LOL spoken like a true Hawks fan. It's all about PFF stats.

    • Junior Miles
      Junior Miles

      @Brian Smith bro Bobby Wagner is the best Line Backer in the League he is worth more then a 5th round pick bro. Check the stats

    • Brian Smith
      Brian Smith

      A first, second, and 5th for Wags? I understand a fifth. If CLE gives up a first and second too, they truly haven't learned a thing.

    • Tall Allen
      Tall Allen

      I dont want Wagner to go,but it makes more sense to trade Wagner while he still has value and we already have his replacement with Brooks than it does Wison. But I think we have a good team that can win without trades. Of KJ doesn't come back tuen we only need a LB and maybe a CB for depth on defense and on offense a Center and a 3rd WR maybe. Some more line depth too maybe? But we can't keep trading all of out top picks away either. 6 out of 10 first rounders( including the Adams trade)since Russell has been here. Those could have been lineman on cheap contracts but he always goes defense.

    Seattle should have traded Wilson to the Bears. Chicago was offering decent talent and a ton of draft picks.

    • Tall Allen
      Tall Allen

      Dumb. Who's the Seahawks QB then? Go from 12-4 and winning the NFC West to rebuilding ? So they become the Chicago Seahawks and we become the Seattle Bears?

    • C-hawk 12
      C-hawk 12

      Chicago didn't offer sh*t..... maybe if they picked in the top 5-10 it's a different story!! But 20 and a bunch of players they were going to release, come on man..... Not at all enough for a top 5 QB...... On the bright side, The Bears still have Andy f'n Dalton😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    • DatPandaDude

      They were gonna release the players the offered anyway

    Will the line protect Wilson if he gets Carrell fired? Is it possible to get rid of all your lineman & just replace them or is that too hard to do?

    • Tall Allen
      Tall Allen

      Ask yourself if you think Russell was talking about the whole line before you get brainwashed and parrot what you heard. You t h ink he was talking about LT-BROWN? Or RG Lewis? Or Shell? Could have been talking about Iupati and Pocic, but Iupati retired and Pocic Re-signed so he might need to talk to him. Thats it. We got a LG now and thst might make Pocic play better. Also Pocic has been playing out of position because of Pete's ego of thinking he can make any player he drafted into a top caliber.....making DL and basketball players OLinemen. Undrafted FA starters too. In the 8 years since Wilson's been drafted, we only got Lewis as a good lineman. Thats it. Nobody has left because thry outplayed their contract and we couldn't afford them. Until Carson Re-signed ,we only had Russell and Lockett to earn 2nd big contracts on offense that we would have missed if they left. So drsft bust don't ever get brought t up. Our whole 2013 draft were bust.

  • A-TownGoblin

      @Skens Saintginat Yes Russell Wilson did a lot for the Seahawks, he threw a interception at the one yard line. Quite a achievement.

    • josh kennedy
      josh kennedy

      @Skens Saintginat 😄😄😄 ok you still didn't answer my question of why he doesn't have what wants on that team. If he has that much pull. The Patriots picked Bill over Brady. You're argument has no valid point. You are thinking of the NBA. The NFL is a coach league. Also he wouldn't have had any of that success without Carroll

    • Skens Saintginat
      Skens Saintginat

      @josh kennedy lol yes I really think he got that much pull. It boils down to.. what's easier? Finding a coach that can succeed with Wilson or finding a QB like Wilson that will do the things he's done for that franchise? I think we both know the answer to that

    • josh kennedy
      josh kennedy

      @Skens Saintginat 😆😆 ok apparently you don't understand the dynamic of a football team. But the head coach is the boss. And you really think Willson has that much pull there ? How come he isn't happy then

    • Skens Saintginat
      Skens Saintginat

      Pete Carroll ain't Wilson's boss. If Wilson wants Carroll gone, Carroll is gone and Wilson's preferred coach is there asap

    Since the Jets messed up and gave up on a QB they set up for failure. They should trade the red pick ,34,and next years 1st and 2 seconds for Wilson. .

    • Sai Trivedi
      Sai Trivedi

      @Joe Campione the Seahawks need players too. Keep in mind what the bears offered and how the Seahawks decline that gigantic package. The Seahawks need to have a quarterback, if the Jets had kept Sam darnold and put him in the package, then the Seahawks might have said yes. But either way, Russ had a no trade clause so he’d be able to veto it

    • Joe Campione

      @Sai Trivedi I forgot 2 1st round picks next year. 2 and 39 plus 2 1st and a second

      The Seahawks won't accept that lol. And Russ wouldn't want to go to the jets, he has a no-trade clause

    Traded for Jimmy Graham, Drafted DK, Traded for Jamal Adams, Signed Duane Brown (All former/current All Pro). Wilson has had everything handed to him. stop complaining. 1 playoff win in the last 4 seasons yet make 35 million a year...did I mention Sherman, Thomas, Kam, Lynch, Wagner?

    • fîsh

      Exactly he hasn't won anything since the legion of boom People say its because he gets sacked alot but he holds the ball for too long He never throws the ball away Never throws checkdowns And he looks for the deepball every play

      Who do we need to replace on the line then? Stop parroting what you hear. We can draft a Center If we still think we need one. We replaced Iupati with Jackson ,who didn't allow a sack last year. Pocic might play better between Jackson and Lewis. We got a lot of good FAs and stopped a lot of needs.

    • fîsh

      Maybe he should take checkdowns Throw the ball away Stop looking for the deep ball every play Learn to beat cover 2

      I love Russ but he played like garbage in the playoffs and the last 8 games of the year. He holds onto the ball way too much which is why he takes so many sacks. Yes the o line is terrible but it’s a two way street. If he keeps this up let’s take kellen mond in the 2nd round 🤷‍♂️
