‘‘I don’t know,’’ Wilson said when asked if he had felt left out of the rookie quarterback discussion. ‘‘The goal is to win a lot of games and help my football team win games. That’s all I know.’’
Something else Wilson should know is he’s two wins away from being the first rookie quarterback in the Super Bowl. The Seahawks will have to do it on the road, but they’re peaking at just the right time and are just slight underdogs in Atlanta next Sunday.
Who knows, soon there may be a lot of people ending their sentences with a ‘‘Go ‘Hawks!’’ the way Wilson likes to end his. If it sounds a bit collegiate, just remember he is still a rookie quarterback.
Only now there’s something different. He’s the only one left.
