Is Russell Wilson the Best QB?
808 months ago3 min read
Week 10 in the NFL officially wrapped up last night as the Seattle Seahawks took down the mighty San Francisco 49ers in the Monday Night Football Game of the Week. It was an extremely entertaining game that would need overtime to settle the score. The Seahawks would kick a field goal in OT to win 27-24.
This was a huge road win for the Seahawks and that got me thinking. Is Russell Wilson the best quarterback in the NFL? Last night he completed 24-34 passes with one touchdown and one interception. He threw for 232 yards and also ran for 53 yards on 6 carries. Those are not monster numbers but when you take into fact that this was on the road against the #1 ranked defense in the leauge, it is pretty impressive.
Russell Wilson was drafted in the third round of 2012 after a very successful college career at North Carolina State and the University of Wisconsin. The NFL scouts thought he was too short and that led him to slipping to the third round to Seattle.
This season, Wilson is having a career year in several categories. He has his highest completion % at 68.5. He has his highest yards per attempt and his highest quarterback rating at 114.9. Wilson has thrown 23 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions. He is on pace to go well over the 4,000 yard mark for the third time in his career.
Wilson will ultimately be judged though on how far he can lead the Seahawks team this year. After last night's win, they are 8-2 and headed into a bye week. After that they will play @Philly, vs Minnesota, @Rams, @Panthers, vs Arizona, and will finish the regular season with a home game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Right now the Seahawks are one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl. I would love to see Russell Wilson lead them to the promise land one more time.
