Colin Cowherd: Russell Wilson Deserves the NFL MVP More than Lamar Jackson

Colin Cowherd: “Don’t @ me, RUSSELL WILSON IS MY MVP. Seattle is the number one seed in the NFC and I have no idea how. Pro Football Focus said they have the 31st best passing offense --- in a passing league! Their defense is 29th against the pass, 29th in sacks, 27th in total defense, and 21st in scoring defense. Their wide receivers? Don’t get my started. And yet they’re the number one seed in the tougher NFC, and for one reason – RUSSELL WILSON. Lamar Jackson is fun, go for vote for him, but he’s got help EVERYWHERE --- tight ends, offensive line, defense, special teams, corners – Russell has help NOWHERE.” (Full Video Above)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson should win the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award in a 2019 season that will almost assuredly hand it to Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Jackson leads the league in QBR and passing touchdowns, with a record-breaking 1,103 yards on the ground to boot, but Cowherd says people planning to vote Jackson over Wilson aren’t acknowledging the ‘most valuable’ classification of the award.

Cowherd says an extremely flawed Seattle team has no right being the top seed in a loaded NFC that boasts the powerful 49ers, Saints, Packers, and Vikings, yet Wilson has shockingly put Seattle, outscoring their opponents by only 26 points, in position for the conference’s best record.

Jackson on the other hand, is putting up MVP ‘numbers’, yet on a much better Baltimore team that has a +215 point differential and is potentially the most complete team in the league.
