There is a reason you like Russell Wlson because what you saw last week was 'very real' and not a fluke. They didn't win because of the injury to RGIII and I would disagree that they would have lost had RGIII not gotten hurt. Wilson and the offense didn't blink an eye even being down early on 14-0 in the 1st qrt. By halftime it was 14-13 and the Seattle D had already begain to stifle RGIII in the early going of the 2nd qrt and all the way thru the game even prior to the injuries that day. Seattle's play on both sides of the ball that game had momentum continuingl to build more and more as the game continued even though the score was 14-13 going into the 4th qrt. IMO, Seattle still would have won that game even if RGIII doesn't re-injure himself and he still wasn't 100% to begin with which really hurt them in the long run to win that game.
