Russell Wilson wants the Seahawks’ offense to be more aggressive
Despite ranking in the top 10 in both yards and points per game, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson isn’t satisfied with the team’s offensive production and mindset.
During an NBC Sports interview in Miami this weekend, the six-time Pro Bowler stated that he wants Seattle to be more aggressive on offense, increase the tempo and use the two-minute drill more often.
“We’ve always been really good at two-minute offense, we’ve always been really good in those end of the hald, not always hurry up situations but those up-tempo moments,” Wilson said. “The reality is this: I think the defense gets tired and the second thing is I really know kind of what I want and how I want to get after them. Especially in moments. And guys just make plays in those moments.”
Wilson was in Miami for Sunday’s Super Bowl that featured a 31-20 win for another high-powered offense in the Kansas City Chiefs — a distinction that Wilson was well aware of.
“The freedom of just going after it and scoring as many points, you know? That’s kind of what the Chiefs do, to be honest with you. Andy Reid and (Patrick) Mahomes, they do a really good job at getting up to the ball, playing with their playmakers and finding ways to make plays.”
Russell Wilson enjoyed arguably his best season with the Seahawks in 2019 as the 5-foot-11 quarterback completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 4,110 yards and 31 touchdowns while only throwing five interceptions. Wilson also added 342 yards and three touchdowns on the ground for Seattle in 2019.
