Sure but there were also many, many plays were there was nothing and Russ made something out of nothing. The net gain with Russ was far more then then the net lost because of scramble plays. We had a historically bad line for years(Petes fault) and Russ had to play background football often just to sustain drives. I'm not a fan of the narrative that all the scrambling was all Russ when multiple years they lead the league in quick pressure which has nothing to do with the QB. People will view this how they want. If they love Pete then they will look for ways to make it all Wilsons fault and if they love Russ they will look for ways to make it all Pete's fault. I think the truth lies somewhere in between but I also believe Russ is an all time great so I'm going to slightly lean that direction.I think it goes without saying, Russell Wilson is a DIFFERENT kind/style of Quarterback, & Coaching for his tendencies to consistently leave the pocket & take off on a scramble, voided a lot of what Pete could do for him (clean Pocket) Etc., there were MANY TIMES that he took off running when he really didn't have to, he didn't take the many, many layups that were there for the taking.
