    ...............the best part about the rookie quarterback's performance, which saw him establish franchise records for rushing yards and touchdowns by a quarterback, was that on his nine rushing attempts, he wasn't hit once.

    Wilson's first rush of the game saw him run out of bounds before he could take a hit. The next time he carried the ball, Wilson scored, and so it went for three dominating quarters -- he really didn't have to do much in the fourth with Matt Flynn taking over early in the quarter.

    Wilson's runs, one through nine, ended in these outcomes -- ran out of bounds, scored, ran out of bounds, scored, slid, scored, ran out of bounds, ran out of bounds, and slipped before being touched down by a defender.

    Nine carries, no hits. That, more than Wilson's athleticism, more than his ability to read a defense, is why what the Seahawks are doing with the zone-read option is sustainable.

    I do love this about him. DEstroy the other team's confidence that they can get to him.

  • hah It's amusing to read "ran out of bounds, scored, ran out of bounds, scored, ran out of bounds, scored, slid, scored"
