  • I like it and also the assesment that he is part of the problem in 2 / 3 losses and attributing the SF loss to:

    "The loss to San Francisco was a combination of great defense and failure of receivers to catch passes in the open. "

  • :thirishdrinkers:

    Great link Spectre, thanks!

    I loved this quote:

    Wilson leads the NFL in scoring passes that travel at least 20 yards beyond the line of scrimmage.

  • Very well-written article. Thanks for sharing.

    Not sure why, but I was surprised with the shower of compliments from Golden Tate. Didn't expect that.

    Russell's pocket presense does need to improve, but that'll all come together with experience.

  • That stat of leading the league with TD passes longer than twenty yards has me a little worried. To most it has been pretty obvious we have struggled on the short middle of the field and most of Wilson's attempts at crossing patterns has seen the ball thrown late and not leading the receiver. The problem I see is the Matt Stafford effect
    Teams are dropping their safeties deep and taking away Stafford's deep threat. Forcing Stafford to beat them underneath and so far he has struggled to do so. If teams apply that same theory to us Wilson will be forced to improve on his short game and so far that is his biggest weakness.

    Hopefully he can meet the challenge but I fully expect this to happen and it will be IMO his biggest test and the deciding factor of whether he can play at this level.

    Stafford and Wilson are both dealing with the same issue.......their primary receiver is being taken away by defenses, and their other receivers aren't stepping up.

    At least the Hawks have a good run attack, the Lions don't........so defenses are making them one dimensional. I look for this trend to continue Sunday with the Hawks D. Cover the hell out of Megatron and force Stafford into mistakes.
