The "Other" Rookie QB - Russell Wilson
My profile of the impressive QB in Seattle - Wilson is probably due for a slight regression, but he has been a massive revelation over past month or two. Bright future ahead.
He was kept on a short leash early in the season from Pete Carroll – Wilson didn’t open up the playbook a lot – the Seahawks leaned heavily on running back Marshawn Lynch, largely neglecting the passing game. Many Seahawks fans wondered if they could qualify for the postseason with a nonexistent passing game. That question isn’t asked any longer.
Wilson is proving that not only can he hold his own in the NFL, but he has that “it” factor that all great athletes possess. He makes the right play at the right time, he steps up his performance in crucial situations, and he is a game-changer. Not bad for a 24-year-old who was playing pro baseball two years ago.
