The Seattle Seahawks have found their Moses in QB Russell Wilson. After taking the Seahawks to the playoffs in his rookie year, Wilson has proven he is one of the most talented young quarterbacks in the NFL.

Stats are stats, so just look at his. He threw for 3,118 yards, had a 64.1 percent completion percentage, 26 TD and only 10 INT. He had a QB rating of 100.0, ranking fourth behind Aaron Rogers, Peyton Manning and Robert Griffin III. He also rushed for 489 yards, accounting for 3,607 yards of the 5,610 yards (or 64 percent) of the Seahawks’ offense.

That’s not unusual for him. In college, three years at North Carolina State and one at Wisconsin, he threw for 11,720 yards, with 109 TD, 30 INT, and rushed for 1,421 yards.

Seattle got a steal with the 75th pick in the third round. He tied Manning’s rookie record of 26 TD and seemed to get better week after week. If it wasn’t for the Atlanta Falcons’ winning field goal with eight seconds left, the Seahawks would have been in the NFC Championship against the San Francisco 49ers–a team the Seahawks beat 42-13 in week 16.

This was great news for Seahawks fans. If not for Wilson becoming their starter, Matt Flynn or Tarvaris Jackson would have been. Would Seattle have made it as far without Wilson? He has firmly planted himself as the future of the franchise.

Seattle fans are happy, happy, happy, and they should be. The future is bright with Wilson as the starting QB. He has the talent and skill set to take them even farther. Maybe this year, Wilson and the Seahawks can make it to the NFC championship—or beyond?

The Promised Land awaits.
