Wilson is a lot closer to the Brady/Roethlisberger model than he is to the Dilfer/Johnson model.
Was just about to make the Roethlisberger comparison. 1st two seasons:
Big Ben: 563 att., 64.6% comp., 5006 yds, 34 TDs, 20 INTs, 8.9 ypa, 192.5 ypg, 98.3 rating.
Wilson: 800 att., 63.6% comp., 6475 yds, 52 TDs, 19 INTs, 8.1 ypa, 202.3 ypg, 100.6 rating.
If anything Wilson has been asked to do more and done it as well or better. Not sure why he gets downplayed so much.
