Again although I love Wilson his style of play can and will eventually lead to injury (see RGIII, Vick, etc...). Luck is that classic passer with off the chart intangibles. Long term history says he should have an incredible career. Russ can too but the running thing really scares me which is why holding onto Flynn would make sense. Just my opinion with which the last I checked in this great country I am still entitled to.
Not sure if I agree with this (RW's style of play leading to injury). Why? Because Wilson is tougher than RG3 and Vick. He is also built differently and he's shown he is as tough as they come throughout his college career and now his rookie season.
Not only is Wilson tougher than RG3, Vick and those types of QB's. But he plays with more intelligence. He only takes a hit when he absolutely HAS to. When the game is on the line and he needs that extra yard for a 1st down. Other than that, he'll slide or run out of bounds. On top of that, Russ knows how to take a hit. He turns his shoulder into the defender and tucks his arms in to put much of the blow into his center mass. Instead of diving head first (RG3) or trying to make the last juke and end up getting hit low (Vick).
I'm not saying RW is invincible. I'm just saying, by the way he plays is different than the injury prone Vick and now RG3. The only thing he has in common with those guys, is obviously his ability to scramble (buy time to throw) or take off and run with the ball. Russell Wilson is constantly looking down field, using his peripheral vision to sense pressure. While RG3 makes two reads; not open, okay time to run it myself. Vick scrambles and makes reads, buying time. But he is the type of player that hates throwing the ball away, sliding or simply going down to avoid a hit/fumble/loss of yards. So Vick ends up taking some brutal hits. He runs like he's a RB. Problem is, Vick is not built like a tailback and ends up getting hurt.
