Seattle QB Russell Wilson to further enhance reputation

Published Add your comment

Seattle head coach Pete Carroll feels the Seahawks' starting QB Russell Wilson is ready to add to his reputation this post-season, starting 4:35pm ET Saturday at home to New Orleans. 

Last season, the evasive QB led the Seahawks to a 24-14 road victory in the Wildcard Round of the play-offs at Washington. He put up a 92.9 passer rating that week, and a week later, he had a 109.1 rating as his team went down late on to Atlanta. 

Despite losing that game Wilson showed tremendous character to comeback from throwing a pick, and give his side a 28-27 lead with only 31 seconds remaining.  

In that particular game, it was a case of the team who has the last possession wins, with the Falcons going onto to win the game with a 49-yard field-goal by Matt Bryant. Carroll admitted to ESPN that he was impressed by his performances in the play-offs last year. 

“The playoffs have so much focus and so much attention that guys can make a reputation for themselves. It was a phenomenal comeback in Atlanta that put us in position to win that game.

“I think that added to Russell’s season. He had great numbers in the postseason. He just seems to rise up and always capture the moment. Hopefully, he can do it in this playoff run. He’s pumped up. I can see it. He gets a little glint in his eye that lets you know, this is what he lives for.”
