Russell Wilson was on full display on this evening. The quarterback dazzled in both the running and passing game as he threw for over 300 yards and three scores and also rushed for 50 yards.
Wilson proved once and for all that size doesn’t matter. Much like his counter part Drew Brees, he was told most of his life he was too short to play the Quarterback position. Boy, were the critics wrong. Wilson is playing near flawless football in only his second season.
He is certainly a rising star at the Quarterback position. The Seattle Seahawks now sit at 11-2. This all but assures the NFC going through Seattle. Good luck to the rest of the conference. They will desperately need it.
Seattle is as tough a place to play as there is in football. The crowd is almost deafening, and the stingy Seahawks defense seems to get an energy jolt when playing at Century Link Field. The New Orleans Saints experienced this asylum first hand.
The explosive Saints offense was useless on this night, and the defense couldn’t stop a nosebleed. It was a tough night to be a Saints fan. They took an absolute thrashing at the hands of the Seahawks.
Can anyone take this juggernaut Seahawks team down especially at home? For my money? No. They boast what looks like the biggest home-field advantage in a long, long time. Communication is near impossible in that noise box of a stadium and it makes things very difficult on both offense and defense for opposing teams.
The Seahawks are on the fast track to a Super Bowl berth thanks to their team and their fans, the 12th man, truly the best fan base in the entire league.
