But this is 2020...and Wilson is obviously a great QB. He has been an incredibly efficient QB for years now. If Pete Carroll would let him loose to throw 620-650 passes...we would see gaudy numbers...but that's not SEA's brand of football...and Wilson's stats are almost in spite of that.
SEA had a top defense and a great run offense when Wilson came into the league...BUT they have been a perennial top 10 passing offense...sometimes even top 5. According to DVOA...here is how SEA's passing offense has ranked with Wilson (chronologically from 2012 to current):
4th, 8th, 10th, 2nd, 14th, 12th, 6th, 4th
When Luck played, IND never finished higher than SEA...not even in 2014 or 2018. So, according to DVOA, SEA (with Wilson) has been a better passing offense. I love Luck...and I think he could have done great things...but the Wilson vs. Luck debate has been over for a long time.
As for Watson...statistically he has been a better QB than Luck was...at the same age. And even looking at career stats...Watson has been better in many categories. I don't know if he has eclipsed Luck...but he's only 25...and hasn't even reached his prime yet.
I would think it would be up to the team on how to recover the funds.
If there is a case where the money has an effect on the salary cap I wonder how that would work?
I know $150,000 is not a lot of money compared to a regular NFL contract but the money still has to be accounted for.
Lamar has to grow. Andrew didn't have to, it just would have been nice. I was as upset as everyone that Andrew walked away... idk, at this point we are arguing over which top of the line car is better. Theyre all awesome, and at this point I'll take any one of them, and you can add Aaron Rogers to that list if you couldn't get anyone else after this year.
