As one of the NFL's top superstars, Wilson had an opportunity to make a statement on Thursday when pressed about the possibility of Antonio Brown joining Seattle. While he shouldn't be criticized for seeing the best in people, he missed the mark by downplaying the severity of his "mistakes."
While several NFL teams have started to allow fans to return to games in recent weeks, the Seahawks won't be joining them for their fourth home game. With COVID-19 cases spiking across the country, fans will likely be kept away from CenturyLink Field for the entirety for the regular season.
Though Brown offers game-changing talent on the field and still belongs in the upper echelon of NFL receivers, his selfish behavior, off-field baggage, and venomous personality should make him off limits for the Seahawks.
While coach Pete Carroll offered encouraging words on Taylor's progress working back from leg surgery, with the Seahawks preparing for their sixth game, time is of the essence if the team intends for the rookie to contribute at all this season.
Still not even to the midway point of his second season in Seattle, Metcalf has rapidly vaulted himself into the discussion as one of the league's premier weapons. In the process, he's put together one of the best starts for a receiver in NFL history.
While not known for his pass rushing prowess in his first four NFL seasons, Bullard gave Seattle invaluable reps in a reserve role only four days after being signed off Arizona's practice squad, producing a pair of quarterback hits and four pressures.
While he hasn't amassed statistics that will send him to the Pro Bowl, Collier has been one of the few bright spots for a maligned Seahawks defense, making several clutch plays and improving on a weekly basis at the base defensive end position.
