Again.. I cannot grasp why everyone is surprised by this?
PREFACE: Russell Wilson is playing GOOD.
PREFACE AGAIN (Because I know the Russell army is about to be pissed off): Russell Wilson is playing GOOD.
His numbers are not flashy. Luck's are. RG3's are. Doug Martin's are.
All Wilson is doing, is winning - which for US is perfect. But that's not how these awards work. Never have. Never will. It has nothing to do with him being a Seahawk.. do you think the Buccaneers and Colts are wildly popular? No. Of course not. Wilson is NOT flashy in the stat column. Completion percentage and QB ratings don't wow people.. if they did, Alex Smith would be at the top of jersey sales.
If you don't believe me, and want a Seahawk specific vote.. pull up the 2005 Defensive Rookie of the Year voting and tell me I'm wrong. Shawne Merriman was FLASHY.. Lofa Tatupu was STEADY and GOOD. Guess who won?
