Better rating, completion %, TDs, INTs and even less fumbles than Luck.
He's just not getting the attention he deserves.
This SEA team reminds me a lot of the Jets team that went to 2 straight AFC Champ games: Big D in all levels with a lockdown secondary, incredible run game and a rookie QB. Difference here is that Wilson is everything Sanchez wasn't. Sky is the limit.
ESPN's Ron Jaworski on #Seahawks QB Russell Wilson:
I've been blown away by Russell Wilson. I take a lot of pride in my prep of the college players coming in; and I thought Russell Wilson would be a good, solid back‑up quarterback for a decade in the NFL. He's come in and shown incredible poise, a pocket awareness, the strong arm, and the ability to make plays. Darrell Bevell and Pete Carroll have done a good job of managing his game out there not asking him to win games by himself. They play defense. They run the football. They have a great balance.
But I am absolutely very, very impressed with the play of Russell Wilson. You just watch him move in the pocket. And I know sometimes people say that's because he's 5'11”, just under six foot. But when you've got guys that are 6'7", 6'8", I don't care if you're 6'3", you have to move and find passing lanes, and I think he does an outstanding job of that.
There is a certain part of his game, and we all have a tendency to look at stats because that's kind of a primary thing to value players, but what's been impressive with Russell Wilson, he has made plays when the game has been tied or they're behind. The majority of his touchdown passes come in critical situations, and I'm a big believer in quarterbacks that manage critical situations. Which ends up being three, four, five a game that those are the turning points that allow you to win or lose a football game, and in those situations, Russell Wilson has been absolutely phenomenal. I'm very impressed with the way he's playing, and quite honestly, I'm surprised. I did not see this coming, but I guess
Seahawks fans are very happy.
