I didn't want Osweiler at all, but he has looked pretty good thus far and if I had to pick between these two it would be a super tough choice. I'll take Brock just because of stuff you can't teach. Age, height, rocket arm etc.

If we didn't have Manning then Wilson is the pick no doubt. He looks ready now.

I still might go Foles ahead of either of them though.

This looks to be one hell of a QB class.
That seems to be the case ... this could turn out to be one of those once in 30 years Uber-Super QB classes assuming both Tannehill and Weeden amount to something? Wilson has the 'it' thing and Brock is going to be a really good one too, thankfully he shouldn't be needed this year.

Foles is looking like a winner in the making as well.

I say Wilson. He looks like a bonified NFL starter. Get him for a 3rd rounder and then trade him in 2 years from now for a 1st rounder. Best to pick Paytons successor in two years or more from now, so he doesn't have to wait 4-6 years to play.

Comparing Brock to Foles, the U of A kitty, seems like a better discussion. Foles played a lot more in college than Osweiler and is more ready right now, but I think they will both be good pros. I was surprised Foles didn't go higher than he did.
What gives you that idea?

Osweiler is the one leading the poll right now by a wide 46-20 margin.

I just like Osweiler's physical traits more than Wilson's. I do like Wilson and hope he does well in the NFL, but I think his mobility has made him look better than he actually is at this point. This is after all preseason where teams are more worried about evaluating players than game planning against the opponents rookie QB. Wilson is a very smart guy with lots of athleticism, and could quite possibly go on to have a better career than Osweiler but right now I would take Osweiler based on his size and potential.

Ryan Leaf looked good in the preseason of 1998 and even started 2-0 for SD

Even when they rush 5 or 6, Wilson just handles it. He's not a statue back there. I'd take him despite his height.

Three preseason games from Wilson and two from Osweiler are not enough to question our pick.

Wilson is also two full years older than Brock, remember.

If you cared to pay attention, he was responding to the dilrod who said Osweiler sucked in college. He wasn't trying to compare Osweiler's stats to Wilson's.

SSJ, i wasn't baggin' on your poll, i was just commenting on the way everyone is suddenly acting like Wilson is some sort of NFL-ready lock to start and do well. Even those who support Brock have those sentiments. He may very well be all that, but it seems premature to jump to that conclusion. I like him a lot and I hope he does make it.

No worries....I'm actually surprised the poll is turning out the way it has....I figured it would a very close vote.

It's actually a tough question for me to answer, as I like the potential of both QBs.

If I had to pick one, I'd go with Russell Wilson, but I still like Brock Osweiler.

I guess the people sniffing Brock's ass are not watching the game. Very painful. Right now today, Wilson hands down and twice on Sunday.

That's quite a sample size you've got there.

It's enough to form a knee jerk reaction, that's for sure.

I still like Brock for the purpose that we have him. Obviously, Wilson would have been wasted in sitting behind PM. Also, he would require a completely different offense to implement for him.

I think Wilson would have been a much better pick if we never got Manning and kept Tebow. But, as we know, that didn't happen.

I'm hoping Brock makes the most of this and becomes Manning 2.0.

I disagree with the bolded. Seattle didn't really even implement the zone read stuff until partway through the season. Wilson's a good pocket passer and he's mobile so his game isn't predicated on the zone read to open things up. It's just a wrinkle in Seattle's offense.
