The play from Wilson nobody is talking about

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • What about having the awareness to trail the play and grab the fumble from Lynch along the sideline during the long TD drive to go up 17-14?

    Wow.

    That would have been a disaster losing the ball right there.

  • it was great awareness, but the ball hit the sideline, so it was out of bounds anyway. It was close, so a good thing Wilson picked it up, but by rule it was out of bounds and our ball either way

  • Yeah, that was big. Regardless, I think the ball went out before that but lord knows we didn't want the refs to have a chance to screw us. On the downside of what ifs, thank you Rice for breaking up that deep pick Russ threw right after that.

  • It fell out of bounds where he picked it up. It would've been overturned on a challenge had the bears recovered. On Second thought with the way the refs were this game, maybe not.

    If a Bear would have fallen on it, the refs would have ignore the out of bounds on the ball. You jump on that thing no matter what!

  • It was ruled a fumble. And we all know with the way that game was called today if a Bears player picked it up we would have been screwed.

    Heady play.

    Pariah would have come up with some BS reason why it should not be overturned.

  • What about that 4th down and 6 play with under 2 min to play leading to a Golden Tate score.

    It wasn't called and given the direction that game was heading, it's a damn good thing our guy scooped it up.

    Fine in this example but this is not the first time Wilson has done this. Preseason if i remember. Its a trait, an awareness and i like it. My only complaint about the lax ball security is that QBs dont belong in the pile resecuring a fumble.
