After a disastrous 2021 season, signs are growing that Russell Wilson and/or Pete Carroll are done in Seattle. Reportedly:
– The Seahawks are unlikely to make any hard moves to keep Wilson past his current contract.
– Wilson is willing to waive his no trade clause for the right team.
– Pete Carroll has little interest in rebuilding, and is more than old enough to retire.
The idea of Wilson as a street free agent is an unlikely but intriguing one. Keep an eye on developments; updates as they come.December 30, 2021 at 9:28 am #11878RedBluffParticipant
The midget looked horrible against the Rams. I’m not sure he’s still got it.
Pete is 70 years old…he should hang it up.December 31, 2021 at 6:51 pm #11887JohnParticipant
That franchise went downhill, albeit slowly, once Wilson wanted to be the center of the offense and the entire team really. His ego got in the way thinking he was Brady or Rodgers. Heck even Rodgers still has only one super bowl. Football is as much about roster building and having a successful scheme and teaching that scheme rather than catering to an ego-driven diva QB. I know a bunch of Seahawks fans here in WA and they all say they preferred when the run game and great defense were the plan.
Pete has one losing season and they’re tired of him. Maybe the 49ers should take note of a head coach who’s under .500 in his 5th year.January 1, 2022 at 10:32 am #11888NortyFinerParticipant
The Seahawks have lost many good players in the last few years, and they haven’t been adequately replaced. Their defense that used to scare the hell out of everyone took only about two years to fall apart. And of course, they’ve never replaced Marshawn Lynch in their running game. Sort of like how the 49ers have been looking for a franchise QB ever since Jeff Garcia left, but that’s its own topic. The bottom line is that “rebuilding” isn’t a phase; it’s a constant process as people come and go, and the Seahawks are where they are now because they’ve flunked it.January 2, 2022 at 3:37 pm #11906JohnParticipant
When Wilson made a modest salary they were able to make both Thomas and Sherman the highest paid at their positions at the time while also signing free agents like Michael Bennett, paying Lynch, etc.
