AP Pro32 comments about Seahawks

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 04, 2012
Comments on the Seattle Seahawks by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses): --- SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (22) Chris Berman (ESPN, 20) - 4-0 preseason with young, eager team always a good sign. Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 19) - If Russell Wilson is as ready as he looks, this team will be better than expected. Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 18) - Rookie Russell Wilson talented, but is he ready to be an NFL QB? Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 25) - Russell Wilson doesn't have a ton of juice at WR ... very average group. Bob Glauber (Newsday, 24) - Russell Wilson one of most refreshing stories of season. Now comes hard part for 5-10 QB. Playing games. Will be a work in progress. We suspect Matt Flynn will get chance before long. Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 26) - Russell Wilson will become first rookie to start at quarterback for Seahawks since Rick Mirer in 1993. Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 20) - I'm nervous about anyone who starts a 5-11 rookie at quarterback. Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 20) - Tucked away in upper left corner of NFL map, Pete Carroll quietly building a winner. Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 17) - Maybe surprise team of 2012. Russell Wilson sparks offense and receiving group coming together. Defense is physical and secondary is biggest in NFL. John Lynch (Fox Sports, 19) - Team that finished strong in 2011 needs competition to bring best out of QB position. Surprise, surprise, it's Russell Wilson that emerged as starter. Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 20) - Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson picked apart Kansas City's defense in preseason to win starting spot. Can he still thrive when games are for real? Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 23) - They are taking gamble on Russell Wilson, but they still can turn to Matt Flynn if Wilson struggles. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
