Funny that the bulk of the Wilson bashing is coming from someone that names himself after a noodle-armed QB that needed an awful lot of help from a superior OL and MVP running back. When you compare Matt and Russ's 1st season, RW is doing a MUCH better job as complete rookie and has WAY more upside. You didn't see this type of improvement from Matt during his first season.
Even now, when watching Hass play for the Titans, his demeanor in the pocket still looks jittery and nervous when compared to the cool, calm, collected yet quick RW3.
Maybe someone ought to take some time to explore the reason for their irrational hatred of a pretty darn good ROOKIE QB.
LOL. Oh joy.. 3 points here..
1.) I don't hate Russell Wilson. I just don't grossly overrate the guy like 95% of this board. And yes, I believe Matt Flynn would have success here.
2.) He has NO chance to win ROY. I'm sorry. ROY is an award that is largely dictated by media pub.. Andrew Luck and RG3 will get all the notice. But if you guys want to hang on to the belief that being a good guy and completing a bunch of checkdowns will somehow propel him over two guys the media fawn over (and rightfully so).. by all means, have fun with that. Hell, Wilson may not even be 5th on many voters ballots. Does that bother you? Probably.. I'm sure we will see 25 threads about media disrespect when the awards are announced.
3.) I'm happy Wilson looks better than Hasselbeck did after 8 games. That's fantastic. What the hell does that have to do with Russell Wilson winning Rookie of the Year? (PS. Russell Wilson isn't even on pace for 3000 yards.. a feat that "noodle arm" QB accomplished 8 times as a starter
