    I still think Luck is the future of this league. He's only getting better.

    I would have to say Peyton would be then. I don't think anyone could hate Peyton.

    If Tony Keapernick can do it, Russell Wilson can too!

    yep and the AFC is going to be wide-open...Peyton retiring soon and so is Brady, not to mention he plays in one of the worst divisions in football he will get plenty of chances to reach to top.

    Seattle fans are front runners, the stadium was damn neare empty for years,. It was like going to a Chargers game in the 80's, you could get 50 yard line seats 5 minites before a game. I get it though, they're winning now so everyone has been their fan acne they were 3yo

    It doesn't matter what type of QB he is right now. The kid is in his 2nd season in the league and 1 win away from winning the Super Bowl....that's impressive no matter what kind of numbers he's putting up in whatever offensive system. He's essentially doing the same thing Tom Brady did early on as a starter

    Averages through their first four career playoff games:
    Russell Wilson - 60% completion , 222.5 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT
    Tom Brady - 58.6% completion, 193.25 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT

    Win a Super Bowl that early on in your career and the sky's the limit for you. Keep in mind that his top WRs have been Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin, and Sidney Rice...not exactly among the best at their position.

    Whoops my bad, the TD numbers are totals, not averages. Averaging 4 TDs in four games...now that would be something special lol

    No doubt Wilson rides his defense. But he is bound to make a big play once or twice a game! I guess he's a flash in the pan type player right now.

    I really liked Wilson when he was at Wisky, but never thought any team would give him a real shot as a starting QB especially as a rookie. You gotta admit it was a bold move to decide to start him over their big money FA acquisition in Flynn, don't know how many organizations would have made that move, but it's really worked out.

    I kinda see some similarities between Wilson and Big Ben, not in size or style of play, obviously, but in situation. Just like in Ben's first couple seasons, the talent was obvious but he wasn't expected to carry the team. Both teams relied on a great defense, strong running game and neither had any real threat at WR, but they expected the QB to make good decisions and protect the ball. I think Wilson is ahead of Ben at that regard at this point in his career, I think he's smarter and better at making quick decisions. He's really in a great spot, he's getting valuable experience first hand without having to be "The Man" and if/when Seattle can add a stud WR, he'll be in a perfect spot to take full advantage and show off some of that potential.

    doesnt need to take many chances when you have the #1 defense and #1 running game. He has averaged 150 pass yards over the last month. But when your qb is asked to carry the whole team , he is bound to have a lesser rating. If you think the seahawks won the last two playoff games because of Wilson , you absolutely have zero football IQ

    O nonsense.....

    He has a way better defense as well as an offense that is molded around his bus driver/joey potatoes skillset. Put him on a lesser team and his flaws would stick out like a sore thumb.

    Exactly why Peyton has been one of the faces of the NFL and has been for the last decade or so haha. Brees, Brady, Manning will all be gone within the next 3 years or so, Rodgers likely within 5, Adrian Peterson who knows since he is a running back and Calvin Johnson may be able to hang on for another 7. Outside of that there aren't very many marquee players in the NFL on that scale.

    Of course he doesn't get 20 completions a game when he doesn't throw 20 passes...He's been amazing this year look at his qb rating

    If he's a bus driver what the heck does that make Tony, a cabbie??? His numbers just as good, and that's without the rushing or the leadership!!!
