Seattle Seahawks: Poor, poor Russell Wilson still has no protection
Did you realize Russell Wilson has endured 128 sacks the past three regular seasons? Yeah, that’s a lot of abuse, and he paid a hefty price last year when he was banged up multiple times.
It’s really strange how general manager John Schneider continues to fail his quarterback. Wilson isn’t made of glass, but he isn’t big and has taken more abuse than most quarterbacks in the NFL since becoming the starter in Seattle.
This offseason, the best Schneider was able to do for Wilson was sign failed left tackle Luke Joeckel to a one-year deal in free agency and select LSU center Ethan Pocic in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
At least he didn’t do nothing, but the something Schneider accomplished won’t keep opposing defensive ends from snacking on Russ whenever they’re hungry.
The Seahawks better be able to run the ball in 2017, or it could be another long, long season for Wilson.
