Dynamic Russell Wilson showing he can do it all
Russell Wilson tied a career-high with three touchdown passes in Sunday's win over Minnesota, but what the stats don't show is his multi-faceted skill set that fits perfectly within the Seahawks' gameplan.

    Great game for Wilson
    For the 1st time this year I can state that the Seahawks won a game, and it was not despite the QB play (maybe the Dallas game also, but the QB wasn't really asked to do anything at all in that game). If he has performances like yesterday in the 2nd half of the season then I will never bring up Flynn's name again. That isn't to say that I believe the Seahawks are better off in 2012 with Wilson as QB. I just won't care anymore, because Wilson will have proven to be a legitimate NFL QB. I really hope that turns out to be the case, because it would suck to waste this season.

    Are you forgetting the game against New England when Wilson when 16 of 27 for 293 yards, 3 tds, no picks, and put the team on his back in the 4th quarter? If you remember correctly, the defense gave up 475 total yards to Brady & co. and the Hawks only got 85 yards on the ground. So if they won that game despite the QB please tell me who it was that won that game for them. Wilson has been far from perfect this year but with the exception of 3 games he has been good enough for them to win. And if you're going to say the Hawks have won games despite their QB, how about last week when they lost despite the play at QB. Nobody knows if Flynn is capable of being a competent NFL QB but if you look at what we saw in the preseason, Wilson was flat out better and that is why he won the job. I for one am not sold yet on Wilson as the long term answer at QB but I cannot for the life of me figure out why there are people who think the Hawks record would be better with Flynn under center.

    That's true. New England was better than Dallas.
    I still think he was very weak, and sometimes flat out terrible, in 5 games (Arizona, Green Bay, St. Louis, Carolina, and San Francisco). I think he was average to above average in 3 games (Dallas, New England, and Detroit). And I think he was very good against Minnesota. The bar is SO low with most Seahawk fans that an OK performance by NFL standards is considered GREAT by Seattle fans. I stand by the bottom line of my post. If he performs in the future like he did yesterday then I am done asking for Flynn. He doesn't even need to perform that well, just reasonably close to that well and I'll be OK. I still don't accept that it is proof Wilson should be the QB and we are better off playing him. But it would mean that he is acceptable and I no longer need to see what Flynn could do to be happy.

    If Wilson ISN'T the answer:
    who is?

    Is there another available QB that possesses the same innate talent/athleticism, acumen, drive, dedication, thirst for knowledge, quest for perfection, that Wilson does? WHO?

    Russellism at its Best
    I'm a little worried about the quality of the Monday's B & S show with Salk in constant chatter as a zealous disciple of Russellism. Hopefully, there will be good conversations from other experts that have a more balanced view.

    ..... I gotta find shelter. Remind yourselves that the NFC West opponents pass thru the CLink again, and "sweet" isn't enough to describe this. I just can't wait!

    Russell Wilson
    Russell Wilson seemed masterful yesterday. His bearing reminds me of a matador, playing the defense like the bull.

    Keep doing what your doing...
    its working Russell. You have the perfect storm. You have a defense that is young and hungry. You have a running back that is one of the best. You have a coach who beleive's in you. The timing was right for you. Now its up to you, and so far you have shown your ability to do so. Just keep doing what your doing and the future looks bright for you and for us the 12th Man. Go Hawks!

    Interesting analogy: 'Perfect Storm'
    What follows is part of a post I created on Aug. 29 2012, before the first regular season game had been played: "A 'Perfect Storm' of success is about to settle over the Seahawk Nation. I can sense it."

    The Seahawks are perennial Super Bowl contenders for the foreseeable future. The Seahawks will surpass the 49'rs next year. Why? Because we possess an innately more talented QB.

    Coaching-wise: The conglomeration of Carroll, Schneider and Cable is a recipe for success!

    Seattle MUST retain Tom Cable in order to become a DYNASTY.

    Well Well
    All the bandwagon jumpers are back. This from the same commenters that were calling for Russel Wilsons head a few weeks back. Seahawks fans are so fairweathered you are almost as bad as the Mariners fans. That is why I don't bother except with the Sounders. There are REAL fans.

    Interesting that you just..
    idenified yourself as a Fairweathered fan. The Hawk's are still a young team with a building history. It is fair to say the fans are not no board as yet like some teams that have been around forever. Although the Fan base (true blue fans) are growing all the time and are some of the most loyal. I have been watching these guys from day one and have never faultered. Good to see the guys who stick with it and its always frustrating when guys come and go. This team is on its way to creating some head lines. Wilson, has arrived at the right time. And Carol will be writing books in 10 years about his success with the Hawks. Go Hawks!!

    First off, not everyone was calling for Wilson's head. Second, that's sports, people question everything. It's annoying, but that's just the way a lot of people are. Does it really bother you that much that you avoid nearly every sport? Anyways, have fun watching only the Sounders.

    Stop generalizing, Levy.
    "I" NEVER called for Wilson's head. As a matter of fact: I've been preaching Wilson 101 since the start of the semester.

    Don't waste your time on Levy. Levy's just a sad sack that'll either hate on the Hawks or hate on the Hawk fans, depending on the outcome of the most recent game. Not worth a response.

    Where was Kam?
    Playing center field for the most part letting Earl do his magic at the line of scrimmage. Oh, and where did his stats show up? I'd say the 44 passing yards are a start. They didn't want to pass over the middle and the corners shut down the outside.

    What I think impresses me the most about Wilson...
    ...is his poise under pressure.

    There were at least 4 or 5 plays Sunday where a less collected QB would have been running for his life. Wilson would just slide out of the way of a sack, keep his eyes down field, hang in there (or roll out as needed), and make the play.

    He has poise well beyond that of most rookies.

    EXACTLY as he performed in his College games.
    Russell is an anomaly.

    Big game
    To me, this was a must-win just like it is every week for coaches and players alike. They have addressed every aspect of team needs last year and now this year; I feel confident that the multi-faceted strengths of Seattle are going to test every team on the schedule. With a good chance of being a "legitimate" playoff team, (in the eyes of some fans, but I'll take it any old way), the most entertaining, talented Seahawk roster since the Super Bowl is taking shape. Even the best teams have a hard time with the best players, Minny didn't exactly stop Marshawn, but with the youth of this nucleus taking their roles as seriously as they have, they put themselves in a serious position to compete for the playoffs-what was that about coach Carroll not knowing QBs? (I hear "crickets"). I think the staff adjusted beautifully for the second half yesterday, both defense and offense alike.
