What a waste in Matt Flynn, almost Hurney-level pathetic on behalf of the GM.

Waste? I wouldn't say that at all, the team has cash, and a reliable backup QB. Trust me, if you were a Seahawk fan, you would be elated with the fact that there is an actual backup, and your season isn't over if your QB gets hurt. Seattle has a history of horrid backups since the DK days. Plus, we can still trade Flynn and release his contract. The Seahawks GM is one of the best out there. We got Lynch for ten cents, one of the best in the draft. Plus we got Flynn who we can trade because our THIRD ROUND pick turned out to be a gem. Very pathetic, lol

By the way. Everyone was ragging on the organization because they selected Bruce Irvin in the first round and Bobby Wagner in the second. Irvin leads the Seahawks in sacks, Wagner leads the team in tackles. Yeah, I don't think Seahawk fans are looking to fire the GM. lol

Lets see how Wilson does once folks have a bunch of tape on him.

Isn't that what they said about Cam after his rookie year?

You compared him to Hurney, which what I can see, most Panthers fans want him gone. Thats what I was getting at. To say it was a bad move just is putting your eggs in one basket. First off, they signed Flynn before they even drafted Wilson. Second of all, if the Seahawks didn't have Flynn... Who would be the backup? Josh Portis? The Seahawks want to win, and that means having depth. Flynn gives them that.

Who has he played twice so far?? No one. He still has division games against SF- last time his rating was 32, Arizona his rating was 62, and against St Louis it is 46. Even against us it was an 82 rating. Don't get me wrong I think he doing much better than everyone expected, especially me after watching him play in college where I wasn't that impressed. But lets not put him up there with Luck. He doesn't have half the talent or natural ability. But that is my opinion and that is why I am on this board instead of working as a scout in college or the pros.

He would have been a top five pick if it wasn't for his height. He has just as much natural ability. I suppose we will see, but on the other hand, it's all the rookies first year, you can say the same thing with Luck and RG3. Point is, no rookie class has done anything close to what this one has done. Those games were in the start of the season, I know you don't follow the seahawks, but his playbook was VERY limited. Wasn't until the Lions game where Bevill actually opened up the playbook.

The difference is that Wilson has Marshawn Lynch and a good offensive line which gives him an incredible running game. Also...I hate to say it but Wilson is good exactly for the same reasons he was great at NCSU and Wisky...he is a freakin smart QB.

Unlike Cam, Wilson doesn't take one play to the LOS and run it b/c the coaches make him. Wilson is a much more sophisticated play caller at the LOS and is better evaluator of the defense. Cam will get there and when he does he's going to be great but right now Luck and Wilson are reading defenses and making checks/running their teams from the LOS.

I think RGIII takes a big step back next year though...
