Mmm-hmmmm.......


You got me! Was that a hindsight 20/20 on your part?

Just watched an interview with him on NFL.com...this guy is intelligent and well-spoken. He's going to be a very special QB for the Seahawks and I'd put him in the running for rookie of the year...I'd bet he has a better year than RGIII, who is playing in a ridiculously harder division than Wilson. Seahawks could steal the NFC West this year.

Lets see what happens before we decide much about him. What did you expect Carroll to say? He sucks and it was a mistake to pick him in the third? Somehow I think Flynn will start and he will be fighting for the third quarterback slot.

Why would you spend millions on a QB in Flynn and expect a 5'10 3rd rounder to start?

He's talking to the birds. This is just to help Wilson get motivated.

Hope Russell does well in the pros but this was one of my WTF draft picks. The Cousins pick for the redskins was obviously much worse and extremely dumb, but they are very similar selections.

Seahawks just invested money in Matt Flynn to be the guy and a week ago announce that there is basically an open competition for the QB job. Not a big fan of Flynn to begin with, but teams should do things to make their investments successful.

Still don't know what the Skins were thinking. Worst pick in the entire draft IMHO. Even worse than the Pats selecting a 4th string rugby player. 2 bad games from RG3 and the whispers will start.


Competition is great for everyone involved, but the draft choices could of been better spent and these two particular players (Flynn,RG3) and expected to and are being paid to be the guy.

staters i still find hilarious, as with their 2 pennies.

Seattle sure has collected a bunch of good back up QBs. I think Wilson can be good, but not in Seattle.

08:11 AM ET 12.07 | Beyond the wins, Russell Wilson has become a coach's dream. Never have the Seahawks seen a player quite like this. One so earnest, so methodical, so devoted that he almost lives at the team complex, arriving early in the morning and leaving late at night. A rumor has spread through the locker room that the team kicked Wilson out of the headquarters during the bye week. The players shrug. It sounds like Wilson. "I take copious notes," he said as he headed toward the film room. Into the year of the rookie quarterback that was only supposed to be about Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III comes Russell Wilson. No one could have expected this back on the second day of the NFL draft when Wilson was taken in the third round, seemingly to be a backup.



Sorry...just for good measure.

2,344 passing yards, 63.4% competition, 7.39 avg, 19 passing touchdowns, 8 ints

damnnnnn

Wilson, RGIII, and Luck have had phenomenal rookie campaigns

Tannehill and Weeden are about where I though they'd be

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.
