Bobby Wagner

Post by 3rdGenAggie » April 22nd, 2021, 1:34 pm

No special reason for this, other than the fact that I decided to look up Bobby's career stats.

It'll be hard for him to overtake Merlin Olsen as the greatest ever football player to come out of Utah State, but he's a clear number 2 in my opinion.

1x Super Bowl Champ
6x First-team All-Pro
1x Second-team All-Pro
7x Pro Bowl
2x NFL Tackles Leader
Sporting News 2010s All-Decade Team

The dude has been unbelievable and has yet to show any signs of slowing down. He'll probably be an NFL Hall of Famer when all is said and done.

He is great. I think he would be a HOF'er* if he retired today.

*not to be confused with a "Ho effer" - that is something else entirely.

Great post. When does his contract end? I hope he gets to play in a Super Bowl again before he calls it a career.

Two more years (and about $35 million), I believe.

I thought I saw something that he was going to stick with 54, but I can't find that comment now, so no source.

I believe Wagner has been in the top 10 in tackles every year he has been in the league, right?

I just looked it up. He hasn't quite been in the top 10 every year, but more years than not.

2020: 8th
2019: 1st (NFL.com is showing Preston Brown with 164 and Bobby with 159, but everywhere else says Brown had 55 that year...I think NFL.com is wrong.)
2018: 4th
2017: 7th
2016: 1st
2015: 19th
2014: 33rd (he missed 5 games with turf toe this year)
2013: 21st
2012: 7th

True. You can take the TMNT backpack off the boy, but you can't take the boy out of the TMNT backpack.

Or something.

You could make a case for the top three:

Cornell Green was a Super Bowl champion
5x Pro Bowl selection
3x first team All Pro
1x second team All Pro
All Rookie Team selection

Although - Steve Young may have something to say about this list

Gotta play the media / popularity game to get into the HOF. Seattle isn't a media center so I think at this point Bobby is on the edge. Is he a nationally known name player? Ted Hendricks had 8 pro bows 4 first team and he's in. But Hendricks was a media darling.
