I dont think anyone called him a fluke...
But Of this Seattle World Championship team...... IS IT BECAUSE OF WILSON?
Doubtful... has he been efficient? Yes! Has he been Spectacular? FAR FROM IT
Just because he has a Ring he all of a sudden is the top of the class... sure, if thats what you base your numbers on, then Dilfer is a better QB than Marino (and you know he actually thinks he is)
That Seattle Championship team won thanks to one of the most physical defenses seen in a while.... I wont say Best defense in NFL history.... but definitely one of the most opportunistic, and aggressive.... and to that point, COCKY and boasting of swagger...... And more impressively, they did it WITHOUT schematics like the Bears and Ravens had to in 85/00
Wilson happened to be along for the ride...
In a straight comparison of QB's
Same as stated earlier today
From a Numbers game.... Foles is had the best season, Wilson the most successful, Tannehill the most responsibility riding on his shoulders.
And in the end.... How much better were WIlsons numbers (2 more TDs and a bunch less INTs) that comes from not heaving desperation throws EVERY 4th Quarter.... thats what seperates those two...
And who put whom in that position.... their respective Defenses..... If Tannehill had Seattles Defense, his numbers would probably look like 3300 23 TDs 10 INTs......not being forced to play the role of hero..... which is exactly What Wilson doesnt have to do.
Hes a game manager plain and simple.... a good one! But nothing special. Luck is a rare prodigy. Griffin is a special player (and tainted at this point).... And in all, Tannehill is an GOOD athlete, Smart QB, and has the highest ceiling of them all..... and seems to have the best work ethic of the bunch from what i've seen around the league.... one of the good ol boys, wife makes him a brown bag lunch and goes to work like a construction worker, and plays hard in his down time.... EXACTLY what I want for a QB.
Please explain to me why Tannehill has the "highest ceiling" of them all? What metrics do you have that explain this cliche? What separates Wilson from Tanny is that Tanny's interceptions are inflated from heaving prayers every 4th quarter? WTF? LOL ...... Yeah that's it. Give me a break.
Your dismissal of Russell is laughable. Remember how that Seattle team played with Tavaris Jackson under it? Of course you conveniently don't. Where were they loaded at the WR position this year? Harvin was injured 99% of the year. You gonna tell me Kearse, Tate, Lockette, and Baldwin are among the game's best units? If they were Dolphins receivers you'd be bitching that we lack talent for Tanny.
Btw, comparing the play of Trent Dilfer to that of Russell is also one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read on here. Wilson wasn't "managing" in that Super Bowl. Beast Mode was shut down and Wilson flat out made plays. He was throwing darts out there.
You want to make an argument for #2, I might listen to you. But your post is completely devoid of rational thought. Just pure homerism and not giving other guys credit where credit is deserved.
