Rookie quarterbacks made a huge impact on the game last season like no one has ever seen. While everyone expected Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III to perform well, everyone had low expectations for Seattle Seahawks’ rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. After having an average first five games, Wilson said his turning point came in week six against the New England Patriots when he led them on a miraculous comeback in the fourth quarter. Via NFL.com, Wilson said once the Seahawks starting loosening the leash around him, the team really starting clicking after that. That was a crazy, crazy game,” Wilson explained. “To come back and win like we did, against a quarterback like Tom Brady — who I have so much respect for — it really started clicking after that. That game gave me some credibility and it showed me that coach truly believed in me.

Seattle Seahawks – Is the Twelfth Man Bound to Win the Lombardi Trophy in 2013?

The Seattle Seahawks came out of nowhere last year and let’s think back to where they were, at this time in 2012.  They were preparing to start Matt Flynn, one of the best (at the time) free agent signings they could have made.  That obviously never happened because Pete Carroll made a controversial move, by starting Russell Wilson.  He looked far more impressive during preseason...

John Clayton: Russell Wilson won’t throw more than 28 passes a game

ESPN’s Johns Clayton doesn’t believe Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will throw more than 26-28 passes a game this coming season. This doesn’t come as a surprise at all.  As much I would love to see the Seahawks let Wilson throw more in 2013, he’s probably not ready to carry that team on his shoulders just yet. It’s going to take another year or two before the Seahawks...

NFC West: June stock watch

San Francisco 49ers, FLAT: The 49ers are a favorite to win their division, and many think they have what it takes to make it back to the Super Bowl. They'll need another big season and postseason from Collin Kaepernick, and he'll have to prove last season wasn't a fluke.
