Pete Carroll has shown that he’s not afraid to change boats in the middle of the river with other players. His first year here must have set a record in roster changes. Could it be that he’s invested so much ego into Wilson that he won’t back down? I find that hard to believe but the lack of progress Wilson has shown so far has me wondering.
Maybe Wilson is progressing, at a slower rate than I can see. That’s very possible and I certainly would hope it to be true. I can’t help thinking that if he’s progressing, then the opponents are too. Even I know he always bails to his right and back when he exits the pocket. At least one of the sacks against the Rams came when he ran right into a sack trying to get out to his right and rear.
I know everyone wants him to repeat what Cam Newton did in Carolina last season as a rookie. While I think Wilson could get there, he’s not there yet. Seahawks fans will see for themselves as Seattle visits the Panthers on Sunday to open the second quarter of the season.
Usually at the end of my report cards, teachers would put in comments about how I was a pleasure in class or that I spent too much time daydreaming. One of my favorites was that I could be great if I applied myself.
For this comments field, I would say that the Seahawks could be great, maybe even super, if only they applied Flynn. Only time, and a quarterback change, will tell.
