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.

Obviously right now it's Wilson. Os can handoff ok, but we don't know jack about how he can play NFL football.

On his worst day, Wlison is still a MUCH better QB than Brock Landers on his best day.

Brock is a superior Knee-Taker however.

Actually I think the guy to measure Brock against is Kaep. I think his playing style will end up being pretty similar also.

Wilson is still much older than Brock too so we'd lose years drafting an old guy to ride the bench.

2 years difference is pretty negligible at the QB position

Sorta of an unfair question. Wilson got the chance to play and show what he can do. Brock basically got to hold a clipboard.

Brock Osweiler is definitely a better human victory cigar.

Draft Weeden and he and Peyton Manning could have both retired as Denver Broncos in another 3 years.

Brandon Weeden, Aaron Rodgers, and Jay Cutler will all turn 30 next season.

Alex Smith seems like he's been playing a long time, and he will only be 29 next season.

Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan will both turn 28 next season and they've both played 5 NFL season.

Not even close. Wilson is dope! Hope Brock turns out to be great. But every time I have had the time to see Wilson play, my jaw hits the floor. He will own that position for the next 10+ years if he manages to stay healthy.

Idiotic is comparing two players in 2 completely different scenarios. We can't compare the two because Brock isn't playing yet. Unless you expected Wilson to beat Manning in training camp for the starting job, then the question is who would you rather have on the bench.

I agree, the comparison is a little off base. You have to look at the reasoning behind these two QBs being drafted the way the were drafted and if you do that you see two diametrically opposed reasons, that is, Wilson was drafted hoping for an immediate impact and he didn't dissappoint where as Twilight was drafted because he's a buddy of Jack and Jack needed someone to play Madden with.

Right.....and if we drafted Wilson and he sat and Brock tore it up in Seattle everyone here would be b****ing and whining abut awwww we drafted a midget qb with questionable arm and this elway clone who is big and has a rifle arm is kicking ass as a Seahawks. Way to go elway.


Until Brock gets a year as a starter under hs belt there is not a whole lot that can be said. I will say it will be hard for Brock to live up to the season and pro bowl as Wilson has tho.

Wilson is a beast but he would have still been holding a clip board here.
i like Brock's long term potential and i think he's a franchise QB for us after Manning retires.

67% of the Orangemane is completely clueless... far less than I would have thought.

Russell Wilson, turns a team around and makes the playoffs with a half ass team.

Osweiler held a freekin clipboard all season long.... Yet 67% of your dumbshiats picked him over Wilson. This place should be shut down due to stupidity.

I do not believe that Wilson was drafted for an immediate impact. The Seahawks wouldn't have signed Flynn to a big contract if that were the case.
