The Bigger the Game The Bigger the Kid.
That's how I feel about Wilson. The Rams game today highlights Wilson's need to win for me. He ran the ball differently today then he has done all year. Lots of folks are simply going to zero in on how dangerous it is for a QB to take the kind of hits he took today when running the ball, but they will miss the will to win that this kid has. The game plan coming into the game met up with a very well prepared Rams defense. In order to win something had to change and I saw that change happen today with Wilson, even to the point of taking hits that he normally avoided.
From what I heard, the Seahawks were purposeful in not paying attention to what was going on in San Francisco against the Cards, so there was at least a chance the division could be won. Otherwise, I think, the Hawks would have sat starters sometime in the second half because they had no meaningful reason once it was clear San Francisco was going to hold onto the division lead.
I don't know how far that takes us this year in the playoffs, but I don't expect to lose a single game with Wilson at the helm. I haven't expected to lose from his very first start. This isn't a delusion, because overall I expect every team is most likely going to lose a game(s), but on a game to game basis, I haven't felt like the task ahead is so monumental the Hawks won't win. I felt this way since watching the simulated game the Hawks had in training camp, when that "game" was in the two minute drill, Wilson had the ball and he did everything in that simulation to make sure his part of the practice game ended with his offense scoring. It was a Field Goal, in training camp, even less relevant then a preseason game, but his future as a QB in the NFL was on the line at the time and his performance mattered.
