Thread: Russell Wilson

  1. #1

    Russell Wilson

    I'm sure this will get moved out of the Steelers Talk area...

    I've been watching the Seahawks play the last 3 or 4 weeks and, man, do I like the way this guy plays. What round was he drafted in? He'd have been great for the Steelers to have in the wings, to play QB when Ben goes down to injury, and to replace Ben in a few years (when he's too busted up to play any longer)...

    the Seahawks selected Russell Wilson in the 3rd round with the 75th overall pick.

    if we wanted Wilson we would have had to use the 2nd round pick we used to select Mike Adams or trade up in the 3rd round from pick #86 that we used to select Sean Spence.

    another 1st round talent overlooked b/c he wasn't 6' tall. To think Rex Grossman got selected in the 1st round is amazing.

    Seattle put up 40+ 3 of the last 4 reg season games and 50+ two of those weeks. I can't recall any time we have put up 50 points in a game.

    Wilson isn't the best passer out there, but what a football player!! I have to love it when a QB runs and blocks like he actually means it!

    If Wilson was 6'5", he'd have probably been the #1 pick in the draft instead of Luck. I heard people say he's 5'11", but I've seen him up close and would guess he's closer to 5'6"-5'8". He's gotta be the smallest QB by far. And I think that's why he went to the 3rd round.

    Carroll and Co. have definitely made some good drafts as of late. I think I remember seeing the LB Massey (sp?) in a few Steeler mocks last year.

    Sorry, Wagner not Massey lol!

    we would call off the dogs once we hit 40 points...

    I had Seattle's D in fantasy and they had 3 or 4 TO's and a good 21 points in one of those games.

    It amazes me that all of the experts keep discussing which QB will be the ROY - Luck or Griffin. I have watched Wilson a few times this year and he is easily the ROY in my eyes.
