I still really like RGIII but he's nowhere close to as far as long in the QB developmental process as Russel Wilson.

That dude, oh man...the performance he put on today was LEGENDARY. The poise, everything.

I'd trade our #1 pick and 3 future 1sts for that kid IN A SECOND.

How did he get passed on so many times? This doesn't even compare to a Tom Brady. Brady sat for a whole year and didn't really develop superhuman QB abilities for a few years after that...even after his first Super Bowl he was still kind of a system QB.

Over the course of 1 season, Wilson developed into a SUPERSTAR. The dude is a throw first QB who can extend every play, escape from any situation, break off monster runs, display unbelievable accuracy..

and in his first ever postseason he put HIS team on HIS back and brought them back down 14 one time and almost from down 20 in ONE HALF another time...starting the 2nd half 10-10 for 185 yards and 2 TDs...

I mean.

****!

That's just unbelievable. Today he looked like GOD in a football uniform.

Why can't good things happen to us?

Matt Bryant is a dickhole.

Can you blame him? It's not like GB was filling those gaps to deter him from running. I think its an unfair assessment to think he is a run first guy just because he ran frequently based on what he was given.

I loved his interview where he ended it with "Go Hawks."

He sounded like a true professional, intelligent guy and yes...a good looking man. Great muscle definition, everything.

The dude is a man's man, and he can play the shit out of QB to boot!

I just traded Colin Kaepernick (17th round value) for Russel Wilson (5th round value) in my dynasty league (along with swapping 1st round picks, I get the #1 overall, guy gets the #8 overall). You lose the round your keeper was picked in in the draft so I'll lose a 5 and he'll lose a 17 which is why we swapped 1sts.

Wilson is my choice for Offensive Rookie of the Year. He has made some big plays at an accurate level.

According to NFL Network, Wilson set a rookie record for most passing yards in the postseason since 1937.

He is a very impressive young quarterback.

A big, excellent pocket passer will never go out of style... when you make great decisions and can take a beating, you're ALWAYS going to win plenty.

Luck ended the year with 54%, a stat that will surely climb, but he made great decisions and was always able to stay in the game, and you could ALWAYS tell his team had faith in him, as evidenced by their play.

The new breed like Wilson, Kaepernick, 3... absolutely, they are thrilling players in every sense of the word, but at some point even the most durable of them (wilson, kaep imo) will have to scale back the running and focus on the passing much more, thats flashy, high risk scheming will sooner or later sideline them way too much to hold their jobs.

Running ability for a quarterback is nothing more than the gravy on top of your pocket passing meat and potatoes.

like I said, I'm omitting Brady and Manning from all future lists, but here are my 2013 QB power rankings in terms of who I'd want running my team for ONE season.

1. Russel Wilson
2. Aaron Rodgers
GAP
3. Colin Kaepernick
GAP
4. Drew Brees
5. Andrew Luck
6. Eli Manning
7. RGIII
8. Matt Ryan
9. Cam Newton
10. GSIII (of course!!!)

Hootie 01-13-2013 07:50 PM

I think Hamas hit the nail on the head with Wilson.

Steve Young.

I never thought of that.

Hootie 01-13-2013 07:51 PM

I can agree that Kaepernick and RGIII still have major development to do that their amazing running abilities will mask for 5 years.

Wilson isn't comparable. He can do the running stuff, but he doesn't ever look to do it. He doesn't need it now to be amazing, it's just another skill in his arsenal.

Kaepernick probably wouldn't be the threat he is now without the running ability, that's for sure. Same with RGIII, although I think both of them can be good pocket QB's.

How big is the gap between aaron rodgers and Kaepernick? Going into last night, I'd say a huge one. But Kaepernick looked really good, and he has the best quarterback mind coaching him. He's going to be really, really good.

Hootie 01-13-2013 07:54 PM

as a guy who watches very little college football and does very little college scouting

HOW IN THE **** DID EVERYONE MISS THIS GUY?

he's a man, so he's developed. The skill set was clearly there. Did being 5'10" really knock this guy to round 3? holy shit

I can see Brady...I don't think he was a MAN yet. I think he was still growing into his body a bit.

but this guy?

He clowned everyone.

The rare cross-racial QB comparison.

Most would agree that Harbaugh coached up Alex Smith.
Most would also agree that Kaepernick has a higher ceiling than Alex Smith.
So I think it's logical to think that with Kaepernick's athletic ability and ceiling as a pocket passer (with Harbaugh's help, of course), the guy can be much better. That's scary considering how good he was last night.
