Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck have played 7 common teams

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • It's obvious that RW is having a great year and statistically is better than Luck, but it's also obvious that he has been "restricted" by the play calling. If you "forced" RW to throw nearly 20 additional times a game, the spread between the 2 might not be so great.
    And this post is not directed at anyone personally.

    I doubt it. Indy is running 10 more snaps per game than Seattle, for one. That accounts for part of the difference in throwing. But the biggest part of the difference is in a stat not mentioned in this thread. Luck has run for 5 touchdowns in the red zone, which has cut some of his touchdown opportunities.

    Not disagreeing, just spinning a little here. Was Indy really a suck a$$ 2-14 team last year? Or, were they the previous four years team of 14-2, 12-4, 13-3, 10-6 that was simply sucking for Luck?

  • What's amazing is Wilson is getting it done with this less than stellar receiving corp. Our leading receiver Rice was out most of last year and the year before. Luck has Reggie Wayne (88 catches), Donnie Avery, TY Hilton. RG3 has Pierre Garcon and Santana Moss.

    Are you aware that a certain player that might have been kinda important to the team didnt play last year?

  • I think many of the comments are even more entertaining than the article.

    Here's one I loved:

    "As a Niner fan I am glad about Kaep, but how can other Niner fans continue to want to suck off Alex Smith with Russell Wilson in his rookie year has been better than Smith in his best year."

    Probably the greatest QB of the modern era and arguably of all time? That guy?

    Overall, I find the "Luck vs. Wilson" debate to be silly, particularly when we're talking about two rookies who have played 12 whole games. Wilson has helped this team more than reasonable expectations would have dictated, and that is all that matters. I'm very glad the guy didn't get noticed before the draft because that means this team got him.
