5. Russell Wilson
It’s no secret that you have to be wary of a wounded animal.
In a football context, the Seattle Seahawks are the very definition of a wounded animal. Injured, but still dangerous.
And quarterback Russell Wilson is what makes them very dangerous.
Despite the fact the Seahawks never gave him much in the way of blocking, Wilson has never had a losing season or a touchdown-interception ratio worse than 21-11.
And, unfortunately for the 49er faithful, he led the Seahawks to a Super Bowl.
His scrambling is second to none in the NFL, and he has the ability to extend plays no matter what the defense throws at him.
The 49ers play him twice, as always, and while the 49ers can finally say they have the better overall team, that still doesn’t mean that Wilson isn’t the most dangerous quarterback they face in the division.
