    Is Russell Wilson changing the game?

    Video on NFL . com.

    1. Was that not a topic last post season with Kaepernick?

    2. Was not a topic last season with Griffin III?

    3. Was that not a topic two seasons ago with Newton?

    4. If I looked at NFL articles from a few years ago and changed a few names, could I have a sidejob as an NFL writer?

    I have already heard multiple times that Seattle is now a dynasty...

    Nah, he's just the best pro of that class. He's the smarter than Luck, has a bigger arm than Newton and he's just as athletic as RG3.

    He's the most humbled, hardworking and has the most of the three too. RG3's ego got inflated, Luck is the most pampered QB I've seen since Peyton and Newton, like RG3, needs to be humbled.

    If Flacco is worth $20 million what is Wilson worth? Younger, smarter and less ego.

    Wilson is unique in the Tarkenton mode. He scrambles to pass, he'll run as a last resort. People think Tarkenton was a runner, not true. He scrambled, always looking downfield, that why he lasted so long.
    Also kid has great intelligence, he's good. I like him.

    When I see Wilson I always think what would have happened in Flutie actually got a chance to play in the NFL.

    Very similar styles.

    It is called the "flavor of the week".  Next season when the Pats and the O, led by Brady, take off, it will be the return of the "pocket passer"!

    Maybe, but Wilson is a better passer and a better scrambler. A better athlete all the way around.

    i don't think Wilson is changing the game, but like others mentioned above, he brings the mobility factor that is hard to account for when you have a slow defense like Denver's or the pats Or an overly aggressive defense that doesn't contain and let's a guy like Wilson slip outside. 

    Combine that style with a fierce defense and you have a winning combo. Lynch, Tate, Baldwin, harvin aren't bad to have either.

    I just don't think anyone should be confusing Wilson, or really any of these guys for "running quarterbacks". I mean they obviously all can run very very well, but unlike "running quarterbacks" of years past, these guys (at least a couple of them) appear to actually be quarterbacks who happen to be able to run too.

    I never liked Mike Vick, I thought he wasn't a passer, I thought he was dumb and I thought he was very beatable. Donovan McNab played in a nice system and started out well before he just started to think it was all about him and his strong arm was going to win everything for him and his ego. Unfortunately for Donovan we all found out that making good decisions with the ball was more like a hobby for him, rather part of a job requirement.

    All these new guys will rise and fall over the next few years...Luck, Kaepernick, RG3, Wilson, Newton...I can guarantee that. There will be injuries to their offenses, they will lose players, they will lose confidence, they will have to come back from devastating injuries, etc. We will find out who survives. It's why I like Brady so much - he has never really had a bad year - all the adversity that guy has faced over the years and he is still always in the discussion of being the best QB in the league. It's pretty amazing when you think about it.

    I'll take Wilson over all of the new young guns, reason, he makes the plays when you absolutely need them. He keeps his poise. The good ones always do.

    The average football fan has the attention span of a mayfly.
