    Let's be honest, who else but an athletic QB could survive behind that O line? That stand tall in the pocket wouldn't work.

    Wilson's first six seasons about as good as it gets to be honest about it. NFL records, SB win, NFL firsts. And he's not yet 30....I think.

    I do think Seattle is lucky to have him. I think it's safe to say he's the best QB they have had.

    I can't ignore how things really are.

    Tom Brady is a better quarterback than Russell Wilson ever was or will be. Wilson will never accomplish what Brady has.

    We already have a thread with Wilson's name in it, and it's a fine discussion: http://www.castefootball.us/index.php?threads/russell-wilson-and-alex-smith.16374/

    The mulatto Wilson is a good QB, but not in, say, Brady's or Rodgers' class. His O-line was just fine in their Super Bowl runs, along with his half-the-field rollout playcalling. As to him being the best Seattle QB ever, I'd have to take Jim Zorn myself.

    From what I've seen of Wilson he's a solid quarterback, and dangerous when the game is on the line.

    Seattle's GOAT? In the discussion, but who cares.

    He's a one trick pony - rolls out to the left anytime the pocket collapses. He's a solid QB but he isn't elite. It's also obvious that he needs a running game to assist him. He can't do what Manning/Brady have done over the years with average RBs.

    Both of Wilson’s parents are black.

    Genetics wise Wilson is a Mulatto, as for his abilities he is poor man's Brees but is on the fringes of the elite of the NFL qb's. It's strange as Plantation Pete has only wanted extremely poor man's version of Wilson in his quarterback room. Yet in USC he only used a traditional pocket passer who had prototypical size.
