Seattle Seahawks See Promise in Rookie Quarterback
The Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson has begun to make a name for himself in the second half of the season.
Despite the loss on Sunday, Wilson had an impressive performance completing 21 of 27 of his passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns on the day.
Wilson ended the game with a passer rating of 125.9 and a quarterback rating of 90.7–one the best performances of his rookie career.
The rookie quarterback has continued to improve as the season goes on, putting up better numbers and an ever better quarterback and passer rating.
This season Wilson has completed just fewer than 64 percent of his passes, throwing for 2,051 yards and 17 touchdowns with eight interceptions.
Though the Seahawks are second to last in the league in passing yards, Wilson has shown that he is capable of throwing the ball and leading his team down the field. During the game against Miami, Wilson marched his team 95-yards down field for a score to start the third quarter.
If Wilson continues to improve and perform well, Seattle will be able to take the pressure of the run game and take more chances throwing the ball down field.
Wilson has developed into a decent quarterback with enough skill and composure to be a starter in the NFL. The Seahawks should be set at the quarterback position for the future as long as they continue to groom Wilson to fit their formula.
