Wilson is a lot closer to the Brady/Roethlisberger model than he is to the Dilfer/Johnson model.

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.
If the 2014 edition of our Texans are going to have much success, this is the path they'll have to follow. Hopefully Romeo can construct a solid defense to minimize the points we give up (and maybe get a bunch of turnovers) Then lets hope Foster and A.J. can make some big plays to give us a shot at pulling out some wins. I just don't see Fitzpatrick/Yates/Keenum/rookie QB(s?) carrying this team to many wins. It's gonna have to be the 2005 Steelers/2013 Seahawks model if we're to contend in a serious fashion this year.
