    He played great. Yards aren't what you need to look at. Comp % and YPA. Yards are dependent in how much you throw. He only got to throw 20 times, and competed 15 of em. That's great.
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.

    Honestly, we need him to be the Alex Smith of our team. Game manager who minimizes mistakes and turnovers. Our defense and special teams is good enough to win us games.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    I'm not saying hes bad but come on 150 yards with 7.6 yard avg? I'm a wisconsin fan but the numbers aren't mind blowing. I said he got the dub but its not like he was impressive.

    7.6 avg is not bad at all. Not spectacular, but our offense is built around running and short passes. 7.6 was Staffords last year, and he threw for a ton of yards.

    You are just looking for excuses now. He was efficient, smart, and effective.

    75%, an average YPA, no picks. That's pretty impressive to most people, especially for someone who is "short and was a 3rd rounder"

    Well stafford threw more passes than anyone in the NFL so thats a terrible argument. I'm a wisconsin fan and I loved him wanted him to get a chance to start but like I said hes a game manager. Not gonna go out and win a game offensively. Hes not bad. Why are people getting upset about that?

    I don't think CSSTL is saying he's awful. He's saying he did well enough to get the W and that's 100% true.

    But he said he wasn't impressive, and he was. You can't fault him for not getting opportunities to pass.

    It's not a terrible argument. Saying 7.6 isnt impressive is terrible. Only 10 QBs last year had more last year.

    So if you go 11 of 15 for 114 yards that's still impressive because it's a 7.6 average? All Wilson did today was do his job and get the W. His performance was nothing all that special. Roethlisberger did a lot of this his rookie year and while people were drooling all over him I laughed because it wasn't him that got the Steelers the 13 wins. It was the defense and running game. Sounds like a similar situation. The way a couple Seahawks fans act about Wilson is pretty much the same as some Jets fans with Sanchez. They're average at best but nothing spectacular or impressive. I like Wilson a lot, hope he's successful and can put up some solid 300 yard 3/4 TD days to put some doubters to bed but he as been nothing more than a solid enough performer that has kept his team in a position to win games.

    Haha, true. I'll admit I was a doubter of Smith, but literally nothing bad can be said about him thus far; he's been great.

    But yeah, I don't know how some of you can say he was unimpressive. He was accurate, decisive, and a perfect game manager. The rating speaks for itself, Wilson was very impressive today.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.
