Cool as a cucumber.
Alright, I needed to get all that out.
Whew. Let's focus on happy stuff. Yay.
By the way, honorable mention for this slide goes to Richard Sherman, for making the sweetest interception I have ever witnessed in my short lifetime.
Yes, Russell Wilson is a winner.
Let me explain why. Considering all the circumstances, Wilson did just fine today. His interception came on a Hail Mary-esque play near the end of the half and had no consequences on the game.
Aside from a few balls that were a little too high and one poor end-zone throw to Braylon Edwards on a corner route, the rookie didn't make many mistakes.
And keep that word "rookie" in mind. This is a guy who still outperformed all other rookie QBs today (aside from the outstanding RG3), despite facing pressure nearly each and every play. He orchestrated a time-beating (and rule-defying) fourth-quarter comeback drive, that by all accounts should've ended in a touchdown four separate times.
So for his first game ever, and for never having a clean pocket (ever, ever, ever), I hereby dub Russell Wilson a winner from this game.
Yeah, I harped on the receivers earlier. Sue me (no please don't do that).
The one shining star amidst this group is Sidney Rice. It was amazing grab after amazing grab for the former Pro Bowler, who started his afternoon by diving for a tipped pass and highlighting it with an acrobatic, body-contorting grab for a touchdown.
If this is what healthy Sidney Rice will do for the Seahawks, I'm all in.
Yes, the stellar return man is seemingly back to form.
Washington had nearly 200 total return yards on the night, and was integral to two of Seattle's scoring drives, including the touchdown. Without Leon Washington, momentum never swings back in Seattle's favor during the second half, and a deflated Seahawks team probably never pulls ahead.
Hopefully this is a trend we see continue the rest of the year!
