Seahawks QB Russell Wilson says of passing game struggles: “It’s on me”

One can’t say Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson isn’t holding himself accountable for the recent struggles of the Seahawks passing game.

During his weekly meeting with the media today, he used the phrase “it’s on me” or some variation at least four times in discussing the Seattle passing game.

“I don’t think there’s a huge issue,” Wilson said. “I just think we’ve had a few games in the passing game where we could have been a little bit better. And like I said, it’s just on me. I don’t think there’s any issue. I don’t think defenses are doing anything different. I think that defenses are paying a little bit more attention to me in terms of putting an extra guy down there or whatever (in defending against the run). But  that’s a good opportunity for us in the passing game.”

And asked about the team’s struggles to convert in the red zone, Wilson said again that “I think it’s on me more than anything. There is a time and place to be big right now and we’ve just got to make those plays and we are going to. I believe that we are going to capitalize and I’m going to make the throws when I need to make them, and the guys will make the catches when we need to make them. They are doing a great job and showing up and we’ll just keep believing and just keep delivering the football and we are going to do it.”

Wilson didn’t go into detail about what he has to fix — he has in the past cited his footwork for off-target throws — saying only that “I’ve just got to find a way to be clutch. It’s something that I look forward to and it’s calling for that time right now”
