I'm having a hard time seeing a just awful, ugly, nasty outing from Wilson. Even when he's struggled, it hasn't been just egregious screw up after screw up.
He's so innately efficient that I think any sup-par outings will be rare. After taking six sacks against Stl, his rating was still off tbe charts. That ability alone puts him in exclusive company.
Think about what caused bad outings from our QB's in the past...Who would have fared so well against such withering pressure? Hass could only take so much before making WTF type throws. Wilson is ice no matter what's happening...CHECK! Fumble-happy Dave Kieg? Wilson has hands that look like catcher's mitts..."CHA-CHING!"
Mobility? Zorn was quite the scambler, but wasn't near as elusive. Arm? The dude has a canon. Among anybody who's started for us successfully for any length of time, he clearly has the strongest arm and best deep ball. Hass was pretty good at reading D's, but I dare say Russell will pass him next season.
I wouldn't be wringing my hands over Russ somehow having a bad day. More often than not, the 'bad day' will be suffered by the opposing D.
