Superstar QB Russell Wilson leads Seattle to Washington for the Rookie Bowl in Sunday's playoff between the 'Hawks and 'Skins. Which Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate is better?
I have to go with the guy who got his team from 5 wins to 9, not the guy who landed softly with a 7-win juggernaut.
Oh, that third round, Little Engine That Could guy you've been luvvin' up all season? The guy who had to earn his gig over Matt Flynn, the $$$ free agent? That's a soft landing for sure.
Wilson is a great athlete. My guy? World class. Bad knee? The guy averaged more than 10 yards a carry yesterday. Your guy? A mere 5.8.
You want to talk passing? Believe me, I know how hot Wilson is. Let me remind you he did the near-impossible yesterday, posting a passer rating of 136.3 - despite being sacked 6 times.
HOWEVUH…There are two Russell Wilsons. The guy who plays at home in Seattle has a passer rating of, oh, 123. On the road? Subtract 40 points.
This game's in Washington, right? Goodnight, pally.
It is, on the same size field that Seattle plays on in the Great Northwest.
