He sucks, n00b.

Not to mention he is the only quarterback in the Super Bowl era to post a triple digit QB rating in his first two seasons. Russell is special. To compare him to Trent Dilfer at this point is despicable.

First of all, Superbowl win aside, he's not that great a QB. He's average at best and the years will demonstrate that. The team as a whole, mostly the defense got the Seahawks where they went last year.

Secondly, heard the latest trend these days? Sugar babies? As men we've all suspected that the "average" American woman is a gold digger and this trend has confirmed it. Hundreds of thousands of college age women across this country willing to sleep with gross older men for a price.

My point? for the few men left standing out there, who are famous and have options, I say exercise those options to their fullest extent. If the man wants to "trade up" or have what he feels is a better woman, then he should go for it. That's what most women these days do, so he beat her to the punch. Big deal!

Super Bowl win aside, indeed. Let's be as dismissive as possible to only the single greatest achievement that can be made in the entire sport of American football on every level. Since you know what the years will demonstrate and can forecast the future, do you mind PMing me with the winning numbers to the next MegaMillions? Yes of course, the defense was ranked #1 in the league. But having the 8th ranked offense in the league isn't exactly bad. Come to think of it, it's pretty good!

Oh and he's a great QB. First 2 years

100 Passer rating
52 TD's to 19 Picks
64% Completion Percentage

That's with throwing to mediocre wide Recievers at best

Yep... And I'd still take a Peyton Manning... Drew Brees... Tom Brady over Wilson if I had to have a game winning drive.

Wilson walked into the perfect situation in Seattle and is most definitely talented... But he's not a top 5 NFL QB... And doesn't have to be with the defense he has behind him.

My biggest issue last season was his up and down performance.... Good one week.... Pitiful the next. Maybe he'll improve his consistency this season.

Oh.... It wasn't hard to outperform Manning considering the rather large egg that Denver laid in that game. I knew it was over the first play...

As for his divorce... Not surprised. He's trading her in for an upgrade.

Indeed. Maybe I was premature with the Trent Dilfer comparison but over the long run I'm sure I'll be proven right.

People on this forum can continue to forecast Russell Wilson's "inevitable" downfall...but based on what? In four years as a college QB and two as a pro he's never had a bad season. Was 1st team all ACC QB as a freshman and 1st team all B1G QB as a senior. He set the single-season FBS record for passing efficiency. He tied Peyton Manning for both the rookie TD passing record and for having the 2nd most TD passes for a QB in their first two NFL seasons. Two seasons for Russell, two Pro Bowls.

I wonder if the defense was helped any by Wilson beating out high $ free-agent Matt Flynn and the ability of the Seahawks to trade Flynn to the Raiders to clear out more cap room for defensive (and offensive) signings. The defense needed to step up this year. After Wilson led the Seahawks back against the Falcons in the playoffs and the D whiffed it in the last minute, no one was saying that the defense did everything and Wilson was riding their coattails!

Yeah... all the credit goes to Wilson for Atlanta's D blowing that 20 point lead... and the 17 point lead the following week should be credited to Colin K and SF. I don't know what happened those 2 games... Atlanta's D had been dominant all season! Oh wait...

Anyway, this isn't a football thread so that's all I'll say. As far as the divorce goes I hope Wilson follows in Brady's footsteps!

I stand by my statement 100%. I've played football half my life, been a fan for over 35 years and attended scouting events, mini camps, training camps, rookie day events, all over the US and have done so for years. I know a great QB when I see one. Wilson is a good QB, he just does not possess the raw goods to ever be a great QB. He played an intricate role in a very good system, on a very good team, that is well balanced and so forth. He is not even on par with the likes of Dan Marino, Dan Fouts, Warren Moon, who had great raw talent, but never played for a super great team like Wilson does. Things evolve and change very rapidly in the NFL today. And my take is that his averageness will shine through once free agency picks off a few more of the key members of Seahawks who made this team great.

He doesn't have a "nose" for the game like a Brady, or Brees or Farve did/ does, (there are many more examples) and he does not have the arm strength for deep outs like some of the great do. He's not a thread the needle kind of passer and he has a very slow release. He telegraphs his throws. These things will all catch up with him once he has to rely more on just himself in games, as his talent around him dwindles.
