He laid a perfect strike throw that was negated by another STUPID, Ridiculous, penalty by Giacomini.

The guy is doing a great job, the others around him did better today, but some of these guys need to smell pine.

RW made some very good progress in this game.Made some great throws down field kept drives alive and most important he didnt let two interceptions shake his confidence.You have to give credit to a QB that has all that pressure on his shoulders has a couple of turnovers and just gets back in the game and throws a td.You are wrong if you think this kid isn't the future.

Good I hope I am wrong. He did score more points for the Panthers then Cam did.

He is showing improvement for sure.

Even taller and more experienced QB's will throw interceptions and miss open receivers.

His stats would be even better if it weren't for Giacomini.

Well, I will say he is showing progress. I like his completion percentage, and seriously, that Lynch interception really should be considered a fumble, not an interception. He also stayed in the pocket a little more, and was able to make some passes on designed rollouts.

He's still not making the plays with his feet that he wowed us with in the preseason. Gasp ! TOTALLY surprised that regular season starters are faster and more assignment correct than random dudes in the preseason. :sarcasm_off:

He's still making reads late or missing them entirely. Even on Fox replays, with the D team announcement crew, they were still picking it up and it was glaringly obvious. Tate gets great separation on crossing routes, Miller was open most of the game, and Rice is going his job well, even with double coverage. That pick 6 was not only a late read, but thrown behind McCoy, who was actually open

He seems to get a bit panicked at times, especially when you put him under pressure.

He is still very hesitant to throw to guys unless they are wide open. Outside of Megatron and Andre Johnson, guys just don't blow coverage away consistently. You have to throw guys open.

These are all average rookie things that are usually worked out. To say he's playing to his draft status (or whatever English said....something about guys drafted in the 1st round outplaying him) is a strange statement. Seriously, so if we drafted him in the 6th round, it would be ok if he sucked ? He's our starter, he needs to play like a starter, because we have a starter on the bench behind him.

A lot of these things were regarded as Flynn's strengths, which I don't get. Maybe he really is hurt, but he doesn't have the arm strength Wilson has, but he finds holes in zones, throws his guys open, reads defenses very well, and makes superb presnap adjusemts, and yes, it was only 2 regular season games, but he showed more than Wilson has in those.

I'm behind whoever starts, but just because we won, to say "hey, get BEHIND our guy, cuz, um, he's good" well, I don't buy it. I'm looking for progression, and I did see it this game. I just hope it continues.

Good progress all around today. Balls were caught and routes were completed. One bad interception, and one that really Lynch should have held onto. It was great to see Miller involved in the offense, and Baldwin looking a bit more like himself. Now they need to build on the foundation laid this week and really bring it against the pats.

I have to say I was very happy when Pete sent Giacomini to the bench after his second penalty. That needs to happen more often IMO. Clean it up.

I agree. He had a beautiful throw to Golden called back and then the Lynch pop up for an int should have been positive play.

It was a little off. But the ball was also deflected back in to the defenders hands off Baldwin. The defender looked surprised.

I think he is doing fine. If he can keep improving this year and we can get in the playoffs, I will be happy. I like the kid, and when you put it in perspective of other rookie campaigns, it's not bad.

No offense, but this means the problem was never him, it was you. He wasn't that much different than he has been up to now.

I'm generally in agreement with Rob here, for 3 reasons:-

1 - the best thing this offense could get right now is a bit of continuity

2 - RW showed some improvement out there today; and

3 - RW's skillset suits PC's approach on offense, given his ability to throw on the rollout.

There are 2 things that need to happen though. We need to try a couple more shots down the field like the throw to Tate - helps keep the safeties honest. And RW needs to stop running trying to get outside the pocket to extend the play when he has made a straight drop and it's not a designed rollout - bad things happen when he does that. The INT on the throw to Lynch was not great play by Lynch, but look at the play again and it's a bad throw thrown at least 2 yards behind Lynch who was running the other way. The best that would have happened was a 5yd gain and Lynch gets levelled, and to get that RW turns his back on the LOS and runs 12 or 15 yds behind the LOS> Ughh.

Wilson was 19/25 for 221 yards, a 8.8 avg. 1TD, 2INT and a 82.3 QBR.

There was some improvement over the last two weeks. He didn't float any passes. But having a better day isn't the same as showing improvement. He was up against a weak defense and one would expect him to have a better day. Opponents have avg'd a 93.0 rtg against the Panthers this year so Wilsons play was below avg.

He finished with a higher rtg. than Luck today, however.

Luck was 31/55 for 362 yards, 6.6 avg. 2 TD 1 INT 81.0 rtg.

vs GB Wilson was 10/21 for 130 yards, 6.2 avg 2 TD 0 INT 99.3 rtg

Had Wilson thrown 55 passes against GB at the pace he was throwing that day, he'd have had 300+ yards passing too. Note Wilson had a much higher rtg than Luck vs the same opponent. So while their stats are much different, it is legitimate to say that Wilson is having as good a year as Luck, just that he's in a different kind of offense.

Which means exactly what we all know it means. He's a rookie. He's going to remain below avg. all year. Even on his good days.

This was a good game for Wilson. He made some mistakes, but he led the team to his second come from behind TD drive. And to his credit, he did it with one of our worst rushing performances to date. Hawks avg'd. 2.8 ypa.

Wilson hit Rice 5 times, Baldwin, Tate and Miller 3 each. He saw his open receivers today a lot more often than in the previous games. He still missed a three touchdown passes. We should have easily been up 20 points in this game.

But hey, if we don't start Breno we are up 20 points in this game too.

By this point in the season, had not Flynn hurt his elbow, I'd say he'd have had a much better game than Wilson did today. Wilson didn't put the game away when he could have on multiple opportunities. But he won and that's what counts.

If anyone still want to have flynn play after this game then your a hugh millen level hater that just wants to appear to be "right all along".

Giacomini just took a 50+ yard pass off the board and he still got 200+ yards passing
He threw two picks (on which was an amazing play and more on Lynch than on him) and still had the poise to throw the game winning touchdown when a field goal would not win it. THAT is the key element i was waiting for. There will be time to be the invincible god army we saw in preseason game 3. Call me crazy, but 19/25 is pretty dang good for ANY qb in the NFL. We will have plenty of time for stat padding blowouts when we play the Jets, Dolphins, Bills, and Lions. For now having these tight games (which he is now 2 - 2 on) are crucial. Imagine having a rookie in the superbowl with the game on the line and he has the fully frigid ice water in his veins. That ice water is being chilled in games like these.

WE played against one of the worst defenses in the NFL, and all we could do was a few FG's the whole game. The only TD was off of a fumble recovery by Browner with a short field. I'm glad we won, but I have no misgivings about how our offense played. It just is not impressive to me at all.

This team reminds me of watching MLB games in which you see pitcher battles with final 0-1 scores. It's fun to watch every now and then, but it gets damn boring to see it game after game. That is what we are now and probably the rest of this year.

As for Wilson I made a decision to make no more comments about "Any" of our QB's the rest of this year. It's too polarizing of a topic with too many on this board. So I will talk about the team, and any other position but QB play.

Ultimately, I still see an 8-8 season this year. Nothing I have seen to date is changing that statement for me.

We looked like a more complete football team today, and I think that was exactly what Carroll wanted to see. I think Wilson's starting to turn the corner in the NFL, and I believe those field goals are going to start turning into 7 soon.

I saw HUGE strides in the offense today. HUGE PROGRESS.

I saw an offense and QB about to take off. He's made progress EVERY WEEK. Next week RW will hit Tate on the crossing route. Just like this week he found; Baldwin in zone, Sydney over the top and Miller in the seam. He missed those throws last game.

How much of the missed throws commentary is due; all announcing team, fans, websites and us being keyed on pointing it out?

I stand behind RW on the other hand not are "O" and RW is a part of that puzzle, if we get some fine tuning on offense and i mean real fine, the Hawks are going to a real scary team.

It's true, the Breno idiocy cost Wilson a lot of yards. I don't know how the rating system would work that, but I'm thinking he was nearly avg. vs Carolina so had that play stood, he would have been avg. or above. That's improvement I can get behind. Even if I still think Flynn would have done better. At this point, it's moot.

Sorry - I'm too busy enjoying this great win and an improved performance from our rookie QB to be that concerned with the moaniest, whiniest contributor on the forum saying my post is drivel. As Russell Wilson says - "Go Hawks".

The guy is 3-2 as a rookie starter, former third round pick. Is he perfect? Absolutely not. Is he doing better than most other rookie QB's, especially considering he's not the storied #1 overall or top-5 pick who is expected to be great? Absolutely yes. Yeah that pick six was pretty bad but guess what - there are veteran QB's all over the NFL throwing similar passes and getting caught. His second pick was a freak event, the way Lynch juggled it into the air.

That's not an easy place to go and he went 19-25 for 221 yards and a completion percentage of 76.0%. That was progress out there today.

Wilson isn't anywhere close to being the finished article but we've made our bed now. Instead of using a revolving door at QB it's time for these coaches to invest their faith in a guy they've selected. And that means us as fans letting this one ride for a while. He shouldn't have to beat the Pats next week to avoid questions. Look at the schedule and tell me this isn't going to get easier - especially with the home games at the back end. We've had a rock solid start with Green Bay, Dallas, Carolina - and the two supposed 'easier' games have come against opponents from what is suddenly the toughest division in the NFC.

We should be happy with 3-2.


not going to hate on the kid but, well...no man. the plan is to give this rook a year (at least) before commiting anything with RW. that said, he was ok today, but with lots of reminders he has a ways to go.

yes, still think our season starter should be Flynn while rook gets things together w clipboard.

good win today though! yay

LINK: http://seahawksdraftblog.com/instant-re ... n-st-louis

"The concern I have with Wilson is a pretty big one. In four starts so far he has really struggled to sit in the pocket and make plays. On the penultimate drive he had pretty good protection on third down, but still panicked too quickly and left the pocket. He was sacked scrambling around trying to find space to throw.

Time and time again he’s leaving the pocket too quickly. If Wilson is ever going to make it as a long term starter, he has to be able to sit in the pocket and make reads. Right now he simply isn’t doing that. I’m not sure whether replacing him is the answer because you might end up switching one issue for another. For every play Wilson gets panicky and leaves the pocket, there’s a play where his superior mobility is a factor. It’s harsh to judge a rookie too early but I think we’re moving into the territory now where we don’t assume Wilson is the answer. For me, the Seahawks have made their bed and need to keep rolling with the guy and hope he improves. But for the first time this season the thought of going back to scouting quarterbacks crossed my mind."

I'll take the higher ground and not end with 'get bent'.

I was glad to see him step up and fire it with some velocity. He has a good arm and needs to use it. He is improving and we still will have our share of growing pains with him.

I will concede one thing.... 'drivel' was a poor choice of word on my part, and I offer my apology to English for spewing that kind of negativity.

Your criticisms of his struggles have been pretty non-existant and its pretty easy to wave the RW flag on the bandwagon after a win.



Because it's so "difficult" to bag on the offense and Russell Wilson? That's not the easiest thing to do?

Yeah....


This is just bitterness from BFS about the Hawks not getting Ponder.

I'm behind him, especially if he continues to improve each week.

Sorry, not buying the drivel you are selling. A horrible pick six and failing to get in the end zone on 3 Red Zone drives says you are incorrect. That is NOT to say bring Flynn in. But to jut stick your head in the sand and say Wilson was great....phhht. no thanks.


Sorry - I'm too busy enjoying this great win and an improved performance from our rookie QB to be that concerned with the moaniest, whiniest contributor on the forum saying my post is drivel. As Russell Wilson says - "Go Hawks".


Exactly. He's a rookie who knows that he is making mistakes. He's working his a$$ off to get better every week, and because of his work ethic he's shown improvement over the course of this young season thus far. Things are only going to get better with this kid. And remember, the W is all that matters.

100% agree. I would love to put all the QB debate behind us. Unfortunatly I dont think its going to happen.


You guys, as mods, can make it happen. Just sayin'. Maybe some smashmouth "officiating" in QB threads, lol; or perhaps have one giant gazillion-page-long thread where QB talk is allowed during the week and no new threads about it, making it easier to avoid? IDK.

Who was the best quarterback on the field today? Mr. Wilson is one hell of a leader and a gift to us in the third round. Listen to the specific praise his teammates heap on him for his hard work, his quest for greatness, and mental toughness. Cam has exceptional physical characteristics, no doubt, but Mr. Wilson has a lot of Larry Bird, Magic, and MJ in his personality. This quarterback has the potential to lift the potential of his teammates simply by the example he himself sets.

Yup, for the most part.

Week 1: Mostly bad performance
Week 2: Excellent performance
Week 3: Mostly bad performance (but better than vs. AZ)
Week 4: Solid performance that was marred by 3 fluke INTs
Week 5: Very good performance that was hurt some by a fluke INT and a deluge of questionable, momentum killing penalties.

Oh and hey, remember not that long ago when Wilson had an overthrow problem? He hasn't had a blatantly overthrown pass for a while now. I'm definitely seeing development- particularly in regards to pocket presence and poise.

Agreed on all accounts. I would like to see him quit that habit of always bailing right, though. He's gotten better with it, but it's still a bit of an issue.

Week 4: He was really bad. That's the only conclusion I could come up with.

He limited mistakes in week 2 and took what was available, but that was his only real solid effort.

I like Wilson and I think he'll turn into something solid, but I feel like we're having to overcome his play rather than feed off it. That's not to say he won't turn a corner later in the season and we can hang our hat on his play, but if our defense was even average the Draft Forum would be going crazy right now.

Saw improvement today, penalties have hurt Wilson and the offense, our third down play calling also hurts Wilson. I did see him looking at more of the field today, hitting some different guys and letting them make plays. His decision making still has to speed up and he needs to be decisive when it does. Thats the pro game speed and at some point giving his work ethic and study it should slow down. Seemed they let him play more today, yeah a couple picks but those mistakes can be learned from. It happens to every QB.

Now if we continue to let him play a bit more every week and can get him to see more and react faster I think things are moving as well as we could expect.

The guy is 3-2 as a rookie starter, former third round pick. Is he perfect? Absolutely not. Is he doing better than most other rookie QB's, especially considering he's not the storied #1 overall or top-5 pick who is expected to be great? Absolutely yes.


What rookies would those be? Out of curiosity.

Not sure what everyone was expecting but Russell Wilson's progression has been steady and for the most part pretty normal. Maybe because he showed so much promise during the preseason people thought it would carry over to the regular season. I have been sitting on the sidelines in disbelief sometimes how people are starting to call for Flynn already. We are such a knee jerk society we want instant gratification for everything. So much so that our sports franchises and corporations cave in to this most selfish of all human emotions. This leads to crappy products that are force fed down our throats which have not gone through their natural maturation process. Then we sit around and belly ache about how crappy everything is. Would you rather flip flop between Wilson and Flynn until we blow this thing up again in three years or should we let Wilson get his battle scars and lead us to a championship? You can't have both. Flynn should be a solid backup now. End of story and lets move forward.
