Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Donald high the checklist

As an Related Press voter, I continuously hear about the truth that Russ has by no means earned an MVP vote. And I continuously have to clarify that the voting course of does not characteristic a listing — we’re solely allowed to provide one identify. If there have been a listing, Russ would have votes. Thanks for coming to my TED Speak.

Initially an neglected third-round decide within the 2012 NFL Draft headlined by top-two picks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, Wilson has been an NFL starter since Day 1. Boasting a 104-53-1 file and 9 Professional Bowl bids over 10 seasons, this cat’s a famous person. I do not actually care about his particular person statistics, although the profession 101.8 passer score is not too shabby. Backside line: Russ is a winner. He is a famous person. And his elusiveness and creativity when the play breaks down is well worth the worth of admission alone.

As I said within the intro to this piece, there isn’t any future-casting allowed. That is about the place the gamers stand at this time. And sure, I completely consider Russ has the Canton chops proper now. That mentioned, I believe Wilson, who’s nonetheless simply 33, goes to take pleasure in a stellar second act with the Broncos. So finally, all you haters on the market can be pressured to acknowledge he is a lock.
