Fin fan here, but I come in peace! Great game yesterday! And more importantly to both our franchises, some great games by our rookie QB’s!
I thought Wilson played great yesterday. Not to sidetrack this thread, but like I’ve seen most of you comment on here, I was surprised you didn’t air it out more with him. Our secondary is horrendous, and our run defense is one of our biggest strengths. I figured you’d air it out to go after that weakness more. Wilson sure didn’t display any reason not to air it out… as I thought his play was fantastic for a rookie. He is definitely dangerous with his legs, and made us pay for it multiple times… both when running for yards, as well as rolling around, buying time, and finding an open WR (how many times did he do that yesterday to pick up first downs???).
I’m sure you all are happy with Wilson, as I’d have to believe he is the steal of the draft so far. To get a QB in the 3rd round? That’s awesome. I was a huge fan of Wilson coming out in the draft. The only one (obvious) concern I had was his height, as I believed that if he was 6’4, he would have been our pick at #8 overall instead of Tannehill (I’m quite pleased with our QB though!). Wilson has the experience, athleticism, arm, and intangibles that you’d have to love… and so far the height seems to be a non-issue.
Speaking of Tannehill, what are your thoughts on him as a QB? This may have been the first look at him that a lot of you have had, so what were your impressions? What are your feelings on his future outlook as a QB? Did yesterday’s performance either confirm or change your perception of him prior to the game?
I’ll tell you what… one thing both our franchises are happy about is that they picked the right year to invest in a QB. This class is unbelievable IMO! I’ve never seen anything like it…
