Interesting listen: Mike Florio of PFT loves Russell Wilson

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13

    He pretty much says he can see Seattle taking over the NFC West in a year or so, simply because they have a better qb. That once they have a bit more experience as a team, they'll have what SF doesn't have, a good qb. That Seattle should only get better as Wilson grows and learns and they have this defense. And that SF will be trying to figure out if Colin Kaepernick is any good. I know a lot of people don't like Florio. But it's a very interesting listen. He also rips the hell out of Jim Harbaugh, which is always enjoyable.

    Here's the entire segment if you want to hear Brock and Salk's conversation after Florio hangs up. Pretty amusing hearing them react. They are two of the biggest Wilson fans, and even they were taken back by Florio. Alsom Salk coins the hilarious term, "Flynnicism".

  • That was just a sportwriter pandering to the home crowd, playing on their resentment and jealousy of the 49ers success.

    Yeah, no way anyone could think Wilson has a higher ceiling than Smith. :roll:

    Florio doesn't pander. Hate him or not for his brashness. But the guy doesnt mince words.

    And if we're so jealous, why are you here and feel the need to correct us? Insecure much?

  • I doubt it. He wasn't doing any pandering after the Golden Tate Hail Mary.

  • Florio was on earlier in the season and was pretty negative about Seattle. He doesn't pander.

  • Florio rips Seattle every chance he gets, which is why his Wilson love surprised me. It's cool, but just unexpected. I guess he just see's what a lot of us see in Wilson's potential.

    Cool.

  • That is a little suprising. We've been getting mostly negative press from Pft, between Sherman and Carroll. Still annoyed at how much hate there was in the comments about Carroll after he said "we could be 8-0" ala we've been in every game. But everyone and their mothers seemed to think it meant "We deserve to be 8-0".

    We are fairly hated by everybody.
