Lol, I went 1990's on this thread, but I'm not kidding, Russell Wilson is the Real Deal Holyfield!
I've been watching him play since he transferred to Wisconsin as a college player. I know it's still early, but he may have a better pro career than RG3, and I can't believe I'm saying this but maybe even Luck, lol. He's that good. I think he'll be in the Pro Bowl this year. He's a class act on and off the field. His only drawback that I see as of now is his height, which is why I think he wasn't drafted very high. He has a lot to learn as a rookie but I think Seattle got a great player for the future.

Uhhh ... I don't see it. Note that Wilson has the benefit of a much better defense:

RG3: 67% completion, 747 pass yds, 209 rush yds, 4 pass TDs, 1 INT, 3 rush TDs, 8.4 ypa, 103 rating

Luck: 53% completion, 846 pass yds, 80 rush yds, 5 pass TDs, 4 INT, 0 rush TDs, 7 ypa, 75 rating

Wilson: 57% completion, 434 pass yds, 66 rush yds, 4 pass TDs, 1 INT, 0 rush TDs, 6 ypa, 86 rating

and if you adjusted for the Monday Night Debacle, Wilson should be at 3 pass TD and 2 INT.

The referees beat Aaron Rodgers. If anything Wilson beat the Green Bay defense.

Here is the box score if you would like to read it.

Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks - September 24, 2012 - Box Score - NFL - Sporting News

Russell Wilson threw two TD passes in a win, Aaron Rodgers threw zero TD passes in a loss. No refs played in the game, therefore, they could not have beaten Aaron Rodgers.

Russel Wilson won the battle. Russell Wilson beat Aaron Rodgers.

Not sure what your point is. Russell Wilson was 12 years old for one game, and a 19 year old freshman at NC State for the other. He didn't play in either game, I re-read the box scores twice to make sure.
