Russell Wilson & all the other rookie QB's

This could be an interesting year. I wonder how many of the 5 rookies will do well.

Of course, I'm hoping Wilson does well. It's preseason, and when defenses have time to prep for him, things could be different. We'll see.

Makes me wish I had seen the games in person. He reminds me of a Michael Vick lite.

Now I don't want to be a hater because I really like Russell Wilson, but I want to see him play a "real" nfl game!

I think his time spent playing pro baseball (minor league for 2 years) has given him the maturity that other rookies lack. He'll be fine...

There's a lite Michael Vick? I thought Michael Vick was the lite version of Michael Vick. I wouldn't want to be compared to Vick at all if I was a rookie QB, much less a lite version. In the 8(?) or so years he's been in the league he has only completed one season, that's about as lite as it gets.

His arm doesn't seem as strong. He exerts a lot more effort getting the ball down the field. He's not as fast. He knows when to slide which he has over Vick but both take hots.

Last night, the NFL network was analyzing all the rookie QBs, and they said Russell Wilson will have the best season... for a kid that went 75th overall in the draft, that's pretty good!!

At first I was like "Brandon Weeden?", a swift googling put me right.

That's nuts, two rooks that are former baseball players.

Hopefully mine is better, but I don't count on it.

I'm just going to dredge this one up. I know I've posted a bunch of stuff about him in other threads, but I'm a huge Russelmaniac.

Love or hate the Seahawks...I think people will come to really like this kid when they get to know him. It's rare we get big stars here in Seattle, so I guess when we do get them, we pound our chests a little bit.

Here's a pretty long, but good video that shows a lot of his highlights for this year.

Wilson should be near the top, if not the winner for ROTY. He was great for most of the season. I'm still not sure that I wouldn't vote for RG3 though. I think that he still had the better overall season. I wouldn't have a problem if Wilson won it though.

I do not think that Luck should win though.

Interesting article on Drew Brees & Russell Wilson at the Pro Bowl.

Also, Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning.

I'm originally from L.A., and grew up with the Lakers. L.A. is passionate about the Lakers.

Having lived in Seattle since 1979, I pretty much grew up with the Seahawks. And I've found that many of us here support them even during the not so good seasons. When they are winning, we go nuts. I can say that I never saw that passion in L.A.

So now we are really happy to have a QB like Wilson because right now it seems like the sky is the limit for him. We'll see what happens. Meanwhile, Seattle craziness continues as articles like this have been written.

Every other team can hope that. Somehow, I have a feeling that's not going to happen

Congrats to RG3...deserved the award. Russell Wilson started slower. Either way, both QB's had great seasons. Luck did well too,

I'm sure we will be reading a lot about those 3 young quarterbacks in the years to come.

It will be interesting to see how Wilson, Luck & RG3 look next year. Hopefully Luck will have more tools around him. Also wonder if RG3 will try to run as much, or if he'll try to protect his body a little more. I think he has an awesome arm, so will be do more pocket passing, or still burn up people with runs.

On another note, I've seen this video already, but that's because I'm here in Seattle.

This was one of the first interviews I'd seen of him once he joined the Seahawks. I really like his mindset, and really look forward to seeing what he does for a while. (go to 4:06)

With everything else that has been going on in my life recently, Russell Wilson has been a big bright spot in my life.

People are starting to notice he does this every time.
