Quote:
...............the best part about the rookie quarterback's performance, which saw him establish franchise records for rushing yards and touchdowns by a quarterback, was that on his nine rushing attempts, he wasn't hit once.

Wilson's first rush of the game saw him run out of bounds before he could take a hit. The next time he carried the ball, Wilson scored, and so it went for three dominating quarters -- he really didn't have to do much in the fourth with Matt Flynn taking over early in the quarter.

Wilson's runs, one through nine, ended in these outcomes -- ran out of bounds, scored, ran out of bounds, scored, slid, scored, ran out of bounds, ran out of bounds, and slipped before being touched down by a defender.

Nine carries, no hits. That, more than Wilson's athleticism, more than his ability to read a defense, is why what the Seahawks are doing with the zone-read option is sustainable.

I do love this about him. DEstroy the other team's confidence that they can get to him.

hah It's amusing to read "ran out of bounds, scored, ran out of bounds, scored, ran out of bounds, scored, slid, scored"
