Yahoo Article about Russel Wilson being best value in NFL

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Article about how much of a bargain Russel Wilson is. No one even touches him. The difference between him and Matt Cassel is over 7 million bucks!


    What I did was pretty basic: I took each QB's 2012 salary cap hit number and divided it by how many wins he led his team to. Before we start, there are several things to think about: Not every QB had a chance to start all 16 games, so that skews some of the numbers; young QB's are much cheaper than veterans; QB's get paid whether their team wins or loses; and as discussed earlier, no QB is solely responsible for the outcome of each game. Taking all of that into consideration, things like injuries or being benched don't stop a player from being paid (outside of being cut without a guaranteed contract or not meeting incentives). Those who top each list probably won't blow your mind, but what it cost each team to pay their QB in relation to wins just might.



    Now, lets look at the NFL's best bargains at the quarterback position.

    Least Expensive SCH Per Win

    1.) Russel Wilson, Seahawks - $49,531 (11-5)
    2.) Andy Dalton, Bengals - $118,504 (10-6)
    3.) Christian Ponder, Vikings - $230,879 (10-6)
    4.) Colin Kaepernick, 49ers - $232,922 (5-2)
    5.) Brandon Weeden, Browns - $293,900 (5-10)

  • The money listed is per win, not per season btw.

  • That should also make him the MVP since it's "Most Valuable".

    Can't imagine another player with the impact he has had that is that cost effective.

    You're right. Probably the most cost effective/successful QB to ever play all 16 games, win 11, then win the first round and go on into the playoffs. Never heard of anyone else doing that.

    I think he led the Cardinals to their 4-0 start didn't he? That's probably why?
