I really like watching Russell Wilson play the game. He’s one of my favorite QBs to watch since he was playing at Wisconsin. How do you feel his progression into his second year as a starting QB has gone so far?
"Russell Wilson has performed well thus far. He has not fallen into any sort of “sophomore slump” because he uses his head on the field. He doesn’t force throws, and he isn’t afraid to take a hit. Like last season, he doesn’t throw the ball unless he really needs to, but he is averaging 9.1 yards per pass, showing again that he uses his head and hits open receivers all over the field — not just receivers that are a few yards away from him. The scary thing is, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get even better. He is a leader and has earned the trust and respect he deserves from his teammates."
