Fourth of July links: Wilson will settle elite debate in time

Happy Fourth of July everyone!!

Catching up on a few links and notes before commencing with blowing stuff up.

— First, make sure to read Jerry Brewer’s column today on the “elite quarterback” debate that has been circling around Russell Wilson this off-season. As Brewer writes, eventually Wilson will settle that on the field.

He writes: “In two years, we’ll have this elite debate, and Wilson will be in that class. The fact that he’s not yet there isn’t surprising, and there’s certainly no reason to justify that opinion by dismissing what Wilson has accomplished so far.

There are two ways to view Wilson’s potential. Stand beside him and look up, reacting to how much higher he must climb to reach the Brady/Manning/Brees/Rodgers level.

Or grab a beer, sit in your own seat and watch him rise, a young quarterback setting the bar higher and higher.”

— ESPN continues its countdown of the top players in Seahawks history.

— ESPN also looks at which Seahawks might not be around in 2015.

— NFL.com examines some of the Seahawks’ methods for selecting players in the draft.

— Missed this the other day, but Steve Largent says the decision to let Jerry Rice wear No. 80 while with the Seahawks was a “scam” on Largent and Rice.

Walter Jones made NFL.com’s list of the top 20 players of the 2000s.
