  • First comment after article:

    I don't want to sound like a hater I like Russel Wilson and I hope he does well, but the problem with QBs the live off there running ability don't last long in the NFL. Drop back passers win super bowls. Explosive plays happen sometimes, but consistency is key. He needs to learn to drop back and stay in the pocket


    Stats while in pocket:

    Comp. 198
    Att. 305
    Pct. % 64.9
    Yards 2,449
    Yards/att. 8.0
    TD-INT 22-8
    NFL rating 102.8

    Why do I even torture myself reading the comments? :?

    Anyways, good stuff, keep it up Wilson!

  • The advantage Russell brings to this team is almost unfair.

    I'm good with that.

    Unfortunately that is a false opinion that many people have about Russell Wilson. It comes from their only exposure to him being highlights on ESPN and hearing the media talk about what a great running QB he is.

    Hopefully this year Wilson can put those opinions to rest (his stats already should have, but hopefully people start to catch on).

  • Another stat to keep in mind (off the top of my head so the number may be slightly off).....in the red zone he threw 20 TD passes and ZERO interceptions (the zero I know is correct). That means he's seeing the field nearly completely and making the correct decision nearly every time and only running when necessary (as in when no one's open).


    Been waiting 38 years for you Russ. So glad you're a Hawk.

  • Rob, if you get to Russell, get an autograph for me. Tell him I have MS and managed to hobble to the Detroit game last season to see them play on the road.
    I am so jealous of you right now. I would kill to meet that kid. He truly is amazing. :)

    I think all the receivers are going.

    TE Sean McGrath is quoted in an interview by Clare on .com talking about how they are all going. If McGrath is invited, then everyone probably is.

  • I know I read somewhere that Lynch was going, too. I'm guessing it's the entire offense minus the o-line.

    Not sure if they that is true or not, but possibly. However, if true, how many of their teammates are as stoked as ours to practice with their QB?

  • What I would like to hear, is that some of our DB's go along to provide some obstruction to the practice sessions, it would hone the skills of Wilson, and his Receivers.

  • My guess would be that a lot of QBs do NOT do this. There are probably quite a few that do, but not all. I live in Chicago and I don't think Cutler is doing this with his offense. I just heard him on a radio interview a week or so ago and they asked him if he had received a playbook or anything like that from the new coach and he said no, but he was sure that it won't be a problem....they will pick it up once they get going later. There was no indication that he was doing any unofficial camps with his receivers or team mates.

  • I know there was a lot of this happening during the lockout. Russell's idol, Drew Brees, was probably the QB who got the most attention for it, but I'm sure others did it as well. Will probably become more common now across the league since there are stricter restrictions on official "practice time" during the off-season under the current CBA.

    Indeed, you get these dumb comments that are regurgitated from other dumb comments posted after other articles by other dumb commenters which then snowballs into an avalanche of dumb comments. The end result at the bottom of the hill is a large steaming pile of whiners fan comments. Ohh, what a truly ugly world we live in, ehh?

    Jay Cutler is the antithesis of the word "leader". Russell Wilson is the very definition of the word.
