When Russell Wilson entered the NFL in 2012, he joined a Seattle Seahawks team that already featured superstars on the defensive side of the ball and a top-flight running back in Marshawn Lynch that controlled the offense. Essentially, Wilson was a babysitter with the job of making the occasional good play to win games. Which he did! In his second season, Wilson and the Seahawks won their franchises' first Super Bowl. Now, six years since that victory and with so many of the stars retired or on different teams, Wilson has taken the reigns of the Seahawks and has played like a superstar.
As the mid-point of the season has passed, the award prediction is now full-blown. Here is the case for the most prestigious award, the Most Valuable Player, to be given to Russell Wilson.
