After 4 games, Russell Wilson's stats rank with those of  Matt Hasselbeck, Dave Krieg, and Jim Zorn.


Just a quarter of the way into his rookie season, Wilson already has emerged with wins in head-to-head matchups against the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and the Dallas Cowboys’ Tony Romo.

His statistics during the team’s 2-2 start, while not overly impressive, are comparable to and even better in some categories than those compiled by Matt Hasselbeck, Dave Krieg and Jim Zorn in their first four starts for the Seahawks (see chart). And that trio ranks 1-2-3 in just about every meaningful category on the franchise’s all-time passing list.

Coach Pete Carroll’s bottom-line assessment: “Here’s a first-time starter. He’s been in every game, and he’s had a chance to win them. … He is not far from being really, really successful right now as a leader in that position. We just have to assess everything that’s going on. I’ve been amazed that he’s done so much and done so well.“There’s a lot going on. It’s not just one guy.”
