Great season by #3 The Seattle Seahawks really seemed to luck out with taking QB Russell Wilson in the 3rd round. Little did we know that he would soon be the starting QB for the franchise, and go on to have what some could say was the best rookie season ever from the QB position. With that said, I am going to take a look at the game by game stats, and show by the numbers, just how well Russell Wilson improved from week one, to week 16, and the playoffs. Season highs are bolded. Week 1: Seattle at Arizona. 16-20. Loss Wilson: Passing: 18/34, 153 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, sacked 3 times for 14 yards. QB rating 62.5. Rushing: 8/20 2.5 yard average, 0 TD’s, 1 fumble. First game jitters is what I’m attributing this loss to, as the Seahawks came out a bit flat. They did start to roll for a bit, but momentum was turned when Kevin Kolb came in for the Cardinals. Wilson had the chance to win it at the end, but even with 8 chances inside the red zone, just couldn’t find a receiver who wanted to hold onto
