Yes it's three rookies in the playoffs, first time ever.
What a batch of rookies this year, both offensive and defensive, but the QB's are crazy good in this rookie group.
The Seahawks own Russell Wilson set multiple franchise records, and tied Peyton Manning's rookie TD record, and Wilson and RGIII both beat Roethlisbergers' rookie QB passer rating record. He was the first rookie in NFL history to lead his team to an undefeated home game season also. Lots of stats and such get thrown around, some mean more than others obviously, but I am incredibly impressed at how well Wilson did this year. Not bad for the 75th over all pick..
I can honestly say I have been behind him from the start, lots of Hawk fans can't say that, there was quite the Flynn/Wilson debate early on.
What I really like about wilson is he is such a classy guy, with amazing drive and leadership ability. He is definitely the kind of guy you can get behind as a fan and even non fans seem to appreciate it.
Yesterday toward the end of the game they called in a passing play for him in the end zone so he could beat the record, you can see him set back to pass, read the coverage and start to run it in. Along the way Zach Miller our TE got open and you could see wilson look at him and think about a short pass for a split second, but then he tucks the ball and runs in.
I guess afterwards they asked about it, and he said he thought about passing the ball but thought "no, thats not me I'm going for the sure thing", turned out to be the winning touchdown.
He's a class act, I'm glad to have him as a Seahawk.
