Did Russell Wilson Change Your Mind Yesterday? [POLL]
Some Seahawks fans were calling for a change at quarterback after the loss last week at St. Louis. Did Russell Wilson’s performance against the Panthers change your opinion?
Russell Wilson had his biggest offensive game so far of the season Sunday, completing 19-of-25 for 221 passing yards Sunday in the Seahawks win at Carolina. He threw one touchdown and two interceptions, though one of those picks wasn’t exactly his fault.
Wilson didn’t exactly have a Pro Bowl day Sunday, but his stats were markedly improved from the Rams game.
His first interception came early in the third quarter, when he threw the ball behind his receiver and into the hands of Carolina cornerback Captain Munnerlyn, who returned it 33 yards for a touchdown, putting the Panthers up 10-6. The blame can be squarely put on Wilson, who erred on the pass.
The second pick bounced out of the hands of the usually vise-gripped Marshawn Lynch, but the Panthers couldn’t capitalize on the take away.
But this being Seattle, where many of the fans seem quite impatient, the controversy over Wilson and Matt Flynn is likely to continue.
