I think a comparison with Luck and Tannehill is fair. The stats between the two aren't that far apart as illustrated earlier in this thread. However, while I'm a big RT fan and think he has significant upside for our Phins, you can't dismiss that fact that Luck has a significant amount of experience over Tannehill at the QB position. If you look at it this way, the closeness of the stats is a bit more impressive on the Tannehill side....
The defense gets credit for the 1st 2 points but they did nothing to generate it. It was just a stupid play by Manning on 1st play of game.
Just run the play Peyton. Got to cute.
Then Wilson started to dominate the game. 9 and 13 play drives dominated the 1st quarter with Wilson converting 4 of 6 3rd downs. That set the tone for game. Defense forced 3 and out but Wilson still led 2 long drives from his side of field. He gave the Seahawks a good lead before the d put the game away.
I thought he should have gotten MVP.
Flacco won it last year with 124 passer rating. Wilson had a 123 with 1 less TD. But he was almost flawless.
Anybody who thinks Tannehill or any of the other QB could step in and do what Wilson is doing is fooling themselves.
They are all young and have plenty of time to give us larger and better samples of who they are.
Russell Wilson 123
9th best ever. Every QB above him won the MVP with their efforts.
He threw the same number of passes as Simms but completed 4 less with one less TD. He was that close to matching Simms top effort.
Laugh all you want.
I'd be 100% fine with having Wilson as Miami's QB. The people saying he's a game manager don't quite understand what one really is.
