@KyleHobbs thank you for proving my point that there is this blind admiration for a guy who has proven absolutely nothing. excuses upon excuses as to why its not his fault. that was the whole point of my post: for some reason this guy has a Jesus like following for no reason. All hail Russell Wilson!!! He's a rookie yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!

@MikeRoddy Completely agree. I'm not saying that Flynn is the answer to our prayers. All I am saying is that I just can't grasp the blind infatuation people have with Wilson. Every time he has a bad game there are a 100,000 people ready to stand up and say why it isn't his fault. When he had his only good game it was a wave of "I told you he was good". If you have to get that excited when a QB does his job it says a lot about what he is doing the rest of the time.
I agree that the play calling is bad on any level, but field awareness has nothing to do with play calling. I give that at least one of those dropped passes would have probably been a TD, but if a quarter back only has one TD in him and if you miss that play you're screwed as a team is pretty sad. Wilson is not ready for this level of play. Like I said before there are glimpses of a future for him, its just not now. As for Flynn being a mistake its tough to say since we haven't had the chance to see him suck. We've seen 6 weeks of it from Wilson. @hawkiefan
I am so baffled by the love of Russell Wilson. I have seen him live and on TV 7 times now, and he is unimpressive at best. He had mediocre PRESEASON games against back ups. He had one good game against a horrible pass defense in the Patriots. Other than that he has been awful. The fact that the Seahawks have the number one rated defense in the NFL, and number 3 rated rushing game, solid special teams including one of the best punters, that only leaves one thing missing on the field: A passing game. You can say all you want about dropped passes, but 5 dropped passes don't keep good QB's from winning games. He has little to no field awareness. He misses wide open receivers on the regular because he won't turn his head, runs into defensive players behind his line because he rolls away from his blockers, and when I saw him live vs the Cardinals he blew at least 3 plays where Sydney Rice was wide open 10 yards off the line and didn't even get a look. This guy might have the ability to do something later on down the road, but the Hawks went after a player in Flynn that any other team would be starting if they had picked him up. I can't imagine he is so bad that keeping him behind one of the lowest rated QB's in the league makes sense. I like Carroll, but think at this point he doesn't want to admit a mistake. Either that or Flynn banged his wife.
