DK Metcalf has already blossomed into a superstar receiver in his second year in the NFL, and Russell Wilson has repeatedly trusted him with that in mind. The two have elevated each other this season to respectively reach remarkable numbers halfway through the year.
Metcalf currently has 43 receptions for 788 receiving yards and eight touchdowns, while Wilson has thrown 28 TDs. Through eight games, they are on pace to double their current totals. Wilson told reporters that he and Metcalf regularly talk about being the greatest duo in the history of quarterback-wide receiver tandems.
“We talk about it all the time, we don’t shy away from it,” Wilson said Thursday. “We talk about it almost every day. What it looks like, what it takes. All offseason, that’s what we’ve been striving for. I think anytime you want to be great in anything, anytime you want to be the best in the world at something, anytime that you have a vision, I think you have to communicate that vision. I think you have to have a plan for that vision.”
However, Wilson has found himself under scrutiny for several untimely turnovers in two separate games, one of which being Seattle’s most recent defeat against the Bills, in which he threw two interceptions and lost two fumbles. The veteran signal-caller acknowledged that he and his team still need to execute on a more consistent basis.
