  • Regardless - if he continues similarly - this is the greatest single season by a QB in Seahawk history. Period. 2005 Hass would be the only one that comes close.

    And that is what I am in awe of.

    But to some of the other comments your right other QB's miss while under duress. But there was a lot of WIDE OPEN WR's if he was taller and while he was not under duress that would have been easy throws to the other QB's I mentioned.

    You can roll your eyes but at the end it is an issue that I am interested in seeing play out. When will it cost him and the team.


    This is a baseless assumption. He missed them. Was it because he was further along in his progression and didn't have time to look back? Did he miss them because he was pressured and scrambling? Did he miss them because of a mental mistake?

    The only reason you assume it was his height is because you know he's short. The only thing you actually know is that he missed them.

  • I'd like to say I don't care what the media and the rest of the country thinks, but it all comes down to respect. I want to (eventually) become a team like the Pats or the (I shudder to have to say it) the Stealers. Perennial contenders, and with continual success comes respect and the mindset of people begins to change. Benefit of the doubt starts going our way if things are close....including from the refs.....and suddenly close calls and close games start being decided our way.

    So it ends up not just being a popularity contest that's all in our minds. It actually ends up counting out in the real world.

    To see a rookie quarterback do this is even more incredible. We as fans let our fandom curb our amazement.

    The thing that keeps occurring to me is" THIS IS HIS ROOKIE SEASON! No two or three years to get into his groove. I LOVED Hasselbeck (hell he was my avatar up until I changed it after the Dallas game) but how long did it take him before he was playing at a Probowl level? That just seems expected and not anything (at all) to be ashamed about.

    Wilson has just made a career of exceeding expectations. This has been so much fun watching him continue to do that. And will be as he continues to do it into the future.

    Now let's get him some Probowl level protection to go with his over-the-top performances. Then nothing can stop us.

    Rookie. On the road against the best defense in football and doesn't turn the ball over.

    Without a doubt it was the greatest performance I have seen by a Hawks QB since Hass against Washington in the playoffs and he willed us to win without Alexander.

    Actually it is not baseless. I do not assume I watched the game. He was pressured up front and needed to move to his left on two plays, If he was a taller QB that I mentioned he would of been able to stand and throw. On both plays he missed because of the interior line pushing into him. He needed to drop his eyes move to find open throwing lanes and make a play. It was not a mental mistake or a progression read, it was a pressure due to his height.

    It will be an issue his whole career, it is how he deals with it that I am so interested with and at awe of how he overcomes. I can't wait to see him in his prime, controlling the game. I think it is going to be special.

  • Amazing, he led 2 game winning drives the way I look at it. One in the 4th, that the D gave away, then just went back out and repeated the magic.

    Amazing.

    I remember watching T-Jack last year and wishing we had a QB who had some magic in him, that was clutch, that could will a team to a win at the end of the game. Wilson just did it twice in 1 game.

    Kid just has 'it'.

  • To those saying "if only he was two inches taller..."

    he wouldn't be as elusive in running if he was taller. His height is a blessing in disguise.

    Also, he does a great job selling the fake handoff because of his height. Those are key plays that have stretched the field in numerous drives.

    Yeah, I'm starting to think that any liabilities due to his height are offset by other benefits.

  • With 3:40 left in regulation and the Hawks down 4 points, 10-14, starting at their own 3 yard line, I said to my wife after pausing the DVR...

    "This drive will define the rest of the season for the Seahawks". And it did, imo.

    And OMFG, did Wilson come through... a 97 yard TD drive... simply AMAZING!!

    And then to come back in OT and have another TD drive... this one 80 yards... to win the game... AMAZING AGAIN!!

    And I especially love that we didn't let Chicago have the ball in OT.

  • This may be a completely, utterly, and totally unfair assessment ... but I almost got the sense like Russell Wilson said to himself, "I don't care WHAT Darrell Bevell just called -- we're doing THIS." I especially felt like that on his scrambles when he called his own number. I really DO believe that he (Wilson) is the singular reason that we won because of HIS calls. That might be totally off -- it was just the sense that I got. Any of you guys get that same sense?

    Yes.

    ...and sometimes a QB just has to do that (ala Hass in the first playoff game in '05). Love it as it happens but also scares me. Don't want him sacrificing himself for a win.

    Please don't get hurt m'man.

    Yep. And when they finally trust him to really open it up and play his game, he'll be even better. We're starting to see the beginning of how good he can be, and he isn't letting us down. He's as smart a quarterback as I've seen in a long time.

    To me, it's like he said, "Boys -- we are NOT going down. NOT TODAY." Kinda like that scene from Rocky IV (I think it was) when Rocky is getting absolutely pummeled ... and Apollo Creed's former trainer is screaming, "Don't go down! ... don't go down!" That's what kept going through my mind what Wilson was saying to his team. THAT's leadership boys!

    here's the thing. he may have missed some wide open receivers. but does anyone here think he won't catch that in film study and begin looking for that play? also, I think it shows some understanding of how defenses try to will set a qb up and try to sabotage a throw for a pick.

    Russell Wilson: "Hold your ground, hold your ground! Fellow Seahawks, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!*"

We may have became a team today, a team that has an undisputed leader. Feels good to have the most important position in the league locked down for a number of years. Most would have mailed it in after that tying FG, RW indeed willed us to victory. I have never been so proud of a young QB. Just watched his interview.......as always.....talked about everyone BUT himself, and ended with Go Hawks!


    I can't really say it any better than this. Partly, I find myself wondering if something clickled for this team . . . but partly I'm afraid they'll go take a shit in a game they should win.

    Ya know, it's possible he missed some open guys, but neither you nor Fudwamper knew the specifics of the plays and his read progressions, so how can you so emphatically say that?


    here's the thing. he may have missed some wide open receivers. but does anyone here think he won't catch that in film study and begin looking for that play? also, I think it shows some understanding of how defenses try to will set a qb up and try to sabotage a throw for a pick.

    This. Remember the kid's still only 12 games into his career. The instances of him missing open receivers will decline to near zero by his third year or so. It will happen even then though. It happens to all QBs, especially when they're pressured.

  • I don't know what exactly possessed me, but I decided to write in to ESPN's Mike and Mike (I sometimes catch their show of a morning). Here is the email ...

    Dear Greenie,

    I have no idea if Colbert is an NFL fan or not, but I can think of no better candidate for his "Alpha Dog of the Week" than Russell Wilson. Think about the magnitude of he just did this past weekend. He (a rookie) engineered not just 1 ... but 2 winning drives against the best defense in the NFL -- AT Soldier Field! Has he got an outside shot at Rookie of the Year?


    Wonder if they'll read it.

  • The best defense in the NFL? In my mind that belongs to San Fran.

    Regardless.... I think Russell should get a statue dedicated to him put up outside the Clink.


    RG3 has been playing this well all season. He's deserved the accolades.

    I just find it hilarious how someone on here always wants to turn it into a pissing match between Luck and Griffin who are both playing absolutely great this year. Why try to use Wilson's really great day to take away from that?


    Players do the same thing. Well at least Richard Sherman, voice of the downtrodden and unappreciated lower round players:

  • RW proved all the doubters wrong, and so did our WRs.
    congrats everyone on a spectacular win against the dirty Bears.

    I just got back home from Lambeau, after watching the Pack beat the crap out the Viqueens, it was priceless.

    Yes. Now I agree that a strong argument could be made for San Francisco having the best defense in the NFL (having seen both I actually agree with that) ... BUT, statistically speaking Football Outsiders in their most recent update had the Bears Defense ranked as being far and away the #1 defense in the NFL. It's hard to argue in looking at some of their numbers. BEFORE today's game that defense was ...

    2nd Fewest in Points Allowed (15.9 Pts/Game)
    2nd Best in Forced Fumbles (18)
    #1 in Interceptions (with 20)
    #1 in Interceptions Returned for TD's (7)
    #1 in the NFL with a +13 Give Away/Take Away Margin
    2nd in Fewest Rushing TD's allowed (only 3)
    3rd Best in terms of 3rd Down Conversions Allowed (only allowed 32.4% of them to be converted).
    5th in Most Sacks (30)
    6th in Passing Yards/Game Allowed (210 Yards/Game)
    8th in Rushing Yards/Game Allowed (96.9 Yards/Game)
    10th in Tackles for Loss (37)

    Just putting this all in perspective.
