So how many first and second year QBs will be starting week one now? 8? 9?
By my count...10.
John Schneider just signed his walking papers for next year.
Yea but this kid is a third-round pic and he's starting as a rookie in his teams season opener. The only other QB in that group who isn't a first rounder is Dalton, and he was a very high second-rounder who had a big resume coming out of TCU.
I saw this kid in the Senior Bowl like 6 months ago and he's like < 5'11" and trust me nobody speculated he'd be a starter his first year in the pros. Actually most had him as a career backup - too short you know.
I give Carrol high marks for sticking his neck out after the investment on the FA QB, but we'll see how his judgement plays out here ?
Russell Wilson is going to be a hell of a player. I'd be excited if I were a Seachicken fan.
I like him, if I was in a 2QB league I'd be targeting as my bench QB
Russell Wilson is looking like a steal. He's still got to do it in the regular season but from what I've seen in the pre-season, this kid could be special.
It takes some serious Moxie to make the Seahawks look good, other then their spiffy uniforms
Why? This is a HC decision.
I'm in this camp as well. I was really impressed when I watched the Hawks PS game. Don't remember who they were playing but Wilson just made play after play and appeared very comfortable. Didn't see any rook jitters, duck-n-run or any of the usual rookie stuff. I think the Hawks may have indeed pulled a caper on draft day.
Granted, it's the PS but sometime you can just tell who's got it and who ain't. I think Russell Wilson has *it*.
That said, yeah, he's too short.
And he's able to do it despite their.... umm.... "spiffy".... uniforms.
(seriously, they're 10x as ugly in person.)
I see quite a few people dogging their new uniforms but I think they look pretty good after watching them a whole game.
So much for the hype of Matt Flynn. I never understood all of that hype that Flynn got last season all because of hi putting up a ton of points against a terrible Lions defense.
He looks like Donovan McNabb out there. Not real fast, but makes quick cuts and navigates through traffic well.
Fans crown guys too early. Let's see him in a few full-length reg season games.
Fine, you can sit on the train surrounded by them.
I still forget that the Seahawks have a new logo to go with their unis.
Every few years you get a QB hungry team to reach for a one game wonder like Scott Johnson or Kevin Kolb. Teams without a marquee QB will take chances that they won't at other positions when it comes to QB's. Let's welcome Matt Flynn to the club.
Can vouch for that! Went into the local supermarket in Washington State recently, and boy are the gross looking in the flesh.
Hey, next time you're down here I'm dragging your butt to Rookie's, Texans gameday or not.
