  • That's the Flynnites not visiting the board for the rest of the week then.

    Great performance by Wilson today and further evidence to a.) why he won this gig and b.) why starting and learning the ropes is the best thing for him. What we're seeing now is just the start.

    maybe at the beginning of the year but i only counted one high pass today... although some of his passes are too high to allow much YAC. His progress from the beginning of the year is simply astounding

    Gawd, let's hope so. I believe we've drafted 19 bad ones. Odds are heavily in his/our favor. He looks so fluid and comfortable that you almost have to think Pete wasted too much time "easing him into the position". The kid is a natural.

  • 3rd and 7, with under 2 minutes to go in the 1st half. Hawks needed some points as they were behind (I think?) to the Vikings.

    Russell takes the snap, must have been good coverage downfield. Pocket starts breaking down from all angles. He can't step up, so he has to bounce out of the pocket to his right. The D-line starts chasing him, and with 2 D-lineman on his ass, RW throws the ball a yard out of bounds to where only Doug Baldwin can get it, making it a manageable 4th and 1, which Russell converts on a QB sneak.

    That was a magnificent play. I thought he was sacked for sure.

  • The first touchdown to Tate stood out to me. Made a read over the middle, looked to Sidney left, sensed pressure and fired across to Tate going to the right corner. Just beautiful to watch a rookie do that.

    His ability to avoid pressure and keep his eyes up were phenomenal today. Gotta love it.

    RG3 wouldn't be able to do that, as he struggles to progress from his first read. He probably would've ran it and the media would've still circle jerked all over him even if he didn't make it.

  • I was an early convert since his last season at Wisconsin, since my bro is an Alumni. Watching he progression this season has been great. The best is yet to come I think. The hard part is going to come in the off season when Pete is going to have to make some tough decisions about his current receiving corps. Too many dropped passes so late in the season and in critical situations. Wilson needs a better supporting cast at this point.

    That and those QB sneaks, that happened to put Hasselbeck and T-Jack into poor health the past few years. Makes no sense to risk your starter with those calls. But I gather there is a method to the madness.

    Currently, Wilson is on pace to match Peyton Manning's rookie record of TD passes, Peyton himself had 26, with 28 INT's as well. He also had a measly 6.5 YPA, a completion percentage of 56.7, and 575 attempts.

    By comparison, Wilson has 224 attempts with a 62 completion percentage. He has 13 TD passes with only 8 INT's. He has about 7.0 YPA, and it's only getting better.

    Wilson could set records.

  • Rookie Wilson is developing good timing with Rice on those deep in-routes. Those were some of Favre's go-to plays for Rice and will be killer-plays for opponents if Russ continue this progress with a weapon like Rice. Tate still amazes me with his heart and effort--just needs to be more consistent. That's a relatively young tandem that should complement eachother very well.

  • Best thing about Russell is he's just playing the point-guard role of quarterbacking right now. Sky is the limit for him n Hawks.

    By the way he was really quick with reads and progression at Wisconsin as well. He just needed more time with the Hawks playbook and oft-injured receivers.

    I decided to trust PC & JS for their uncanny ability to find players that excell at most positions, I will admit that I was happy that they went out and got Matt Flynn, because I felt that we'd seen the best that Jackson had to offer by Seasons end last Year.
    It kind of fostered a bit of uneasiness when Pete decided to start Wilson, but I didn't question the move as I believe that PC & JS have put a bunch of thought into the decide.
    As it turns out, Wilson has shown that he's quick to grasp the game on the NFL level.
    I see Flynn (who beat out Jackson) as a GOOD backup if the need arises,,I just don't get the Flynn bashers mindset on the matter, oh well.

    The Flynn bashers are just the natural response to the Flynnsanity guys who thought they knew more about the QBs on this team and knew more about personnel and coaching than Carroll. They were wrong, I think that's clear now. There were a lot of heated arguments so a little "I told you so" and digs are to be expected.

    I agree, though, Flynn is a very solid backup for us. If there's a trade market for him in the offseason of any sort, I'd be fine with pursuing it, but I'm also fine keeping him around as a decent insurance policy so there isn't as big of a drop off if Wilson goes down as with most starters to their backups.
