Michael Bennett: Seahawks' Doug Baldwin won't get enough credit because he's not Odell Beckham, Jr.

Russell Wilson called it the best catch he'd ever seen.

Doug Baldwin doesn't get enough respect for the role he's played in Seattle's improved offense over the second half of the season with too many national pundits praising instead his quarterback, Russell Wilson.

The reality is, both of the Seahawks' stars are playing at All-Pro levels, which was only reinforced with Seattle's gutty come-from-behind playoff win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Perhaps after making catches (like the one shown above) in a yet another primetime game, Baldwin will start to get the credit he deserves.

After all, he was the co-leader this season in touchdown receptions (14) over the regular season with Brandon Marshall of the NY Jets and DeAndre Hopkins of the Houston Texans and, as Bennett noted in the video, not everybody makes it to the playoffs (or scores touchdowns once they are there).
