Football is the ultimate team game, but Russell Wilson might want to rebut that notion.
Since the Seattle Seahawks selected him in the third round of the 2012 draft, Wilson has grown from a complementary passer in a run-based offense to virtually their only offensive weapon. He plays behind an offensive line that seems to do more for the opposing defense than it does for its own quarterback.youth nfl jerseys cheap
In 2017, Wilson tied a career high with 34 touchdown passes, which led the league. He completed 61.3 percent of his passes for 3,983 yards, and he added 95 rushes for 586 yards and three touchdowns.
Outside of Wilson’s efforts, Seattle’s formerly formidable run game was pathetic last season. Mike Davis led all Seattle running backs with only 240 yards on the season, and rotational back J.D. McKissic was the lone Seahawk other than Wilson to have scored a rushing touchdown.cheap youth nfl jerseys
Not only did Wilson transcend a limited offense, but he did so with little help from those around him (aside from receiver Doug Baldwin and tight end Jimmy Graham) and under tremendous pressure.
Seattle’s switch in offensive coordinators from Darrell Bevell to Brian Schottenheimer may help Wilson in some ways—Schottenheimer seems to want to coach Wilson hard and demand the most out of him—but it’s Wilson who’s owed youth nfl jerseys a debt by his team. He’s extracted the most from personnel and coaching situations that would bring lesser quarterbacks to their knees, and he’s still standing.
When the Saints signed Drew Brees before the 2006 season, both were eyeing a rebound. Brees was recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered in the 2006 playoffs with the San Diego Chargers, and the Saints had been a road team throughout the entire 2005 season due to Hurricane Katrina.nike jersey nfl cheap
But the Saints made a triumphant return to the Superdome, and Brees became the best quarterback—and perhaps the most important player—in franchise history.
The Saints went from 3-13 to 10-6 in Brees’ first season with the Saints, which was also head coach Sean Payton’s first season. The two have been joined at the hip ever since.
Payton and Brees presided over the franchise’s lone Super Bowl win at the end of the 2009 season. Within Payton’s multidimensional offenses, Brees has become one of the most efficient and prolific quarterbacks in NFL history.cheap nfl jerseys nike china
From 2006 through 2017, he holds the league marks for passing attempts, completions, completion percentage, passing yards and touchdown passes. Tom Brady is the only quarterback who has a higher passer rating than Brees’ 99.6 among those who have played for that entire span of time.
Moreover, Brees has been involved in the community for years through his Brees Dream Foundation. Both on and off the field, he’s tied himself to his team and his town in ways few other players have.
