Recommendation: Concern about Wilson's small stature have proven valid. Defenses use interior linemen to disrupt passing lanes, which forces Wilson to abandon the pocket lest he hold the ball too long and get pounded by the pass rush off the edge. Wilson's speed helps him avoid sacks, but he's quick to dump the ball off if his first read is not an option. So, Seattle's conservative offense isn't solely a function of unimaginative playcalling. It's also a result of Wilson's inability to make plays thus far. His 5.94 YPA ranks 31st, and he has only two completions of 25-plus yards (32nd). While coach Pete Carroll said Wilson's still the starter, he didn't sound too confident about it: " We're going with Russell right now. He's working his tail off to get it right."
