I think it's worth recalling just how many qb's we've had that have actually won meaningful playoff games.

3 (with due respect to Jon Kitna and Tavaris Jackson). In 42 years.

I, for one, remember all too well, the days of Kelly Stouffer, Rick Mirer, and the scrub from Green Bay that we overpaid on the free agent market. And let's not forget Touchdown Jesus, aka Charlie Whitehurst.

No thanks. I'll take RW at $30+ mill any day. RW wins. The next guy or guys may not. For years to come.

I think this was some of the best quarterback play from the pocket from Russell Wilson I've seen. Getting the ball out quickly...stepping up in the pocket rather than trying to run out of it...finally!

The Seahawks at times looked like they were trying to give the game away with penalties and turnovers, but their overall talent came through.

The defensive line should improve with several good players due back from injury.

Now they need to trade for safety Minkah Fitzpatrick.

Good points Sluggo.  I was bothered by all the missed tackles on defense.

From the 3rd longest average time-to-throw mark of 3.02sec in 2018, Russell Wilson's 1.89sec average yesterday was the lowest for all quarterbacks since 2016. Also, prior to the game I'd seen a 'heat chart' for Wilson, which showed that he rarely throws to the short middle of the field. That was hardly the case yesterday.

I'm beginning to feel good about this season.

Well, no Drew Brees on Sunday.  That's gotta be good for us.

Yes, it's good to see Russell getting rid of the ball quicker. I'm guessing that's an adjustment they are making offensively although you can pretty much predict he's going to be running up the middle late in the game.  It's nice to be 2-0 but quality of opponent hasn't been that great and same old story with the offensive line.

Well sure he got rid of the ball quicker, out of necessity, after being sacked 3 times in the first half. I agree Tom that the O line is the same old same ol...too many penalties and poor pass protection. But as long as they block well enough to run the ball efficiently, limit penalties, I expect a year similar to last, which wasn't bad considering. I would, in spite of the injury risk, like to see Wilson run the ball himself more.

The thing is, I don't remember him being able to do that last year, when he was the 3rd most sacked quarterback. They kept saying the same things - "we need to get the ball out quicker" - but it never actually seemed to happen. And obviously, never at a 1.89sec average time-to-throw rate. It's only one game, but I'm so hoping that Wilson has taken that next step which will put him in the very top tier of QBs.

I think they're much better at run-blocking, less so at pass protection. frown.gif

Russell Wilson = small

It was a fluke for his 1.89 seconds.

IMO, he will go back to the way he was before.  Only upside to holding the ball a little longer is that he makes less interceptions IMO....but then he scrambles it.
