This is my first fan post and while I wish I had some kind of clever intro, I don't. This has just been nagging at me and I haven't heard this point made here, on local sports radio or national media. If it has already been mentioned and I missed it I apologize.
As the off season quarterback competition dragged on, it seemed like the main argument against it was that whoever won was losing valuable practice reps to whoever was going to lose. How could the starting quarterback possibly succeed going into the season having lost so many reps in camp? How could he develop a rapport with the receivers? He was losing valuable time. Russell Wilson then won the job in the preseason and has since struggled with all the things everyone expected the winning quarterback to struggle with. WHY IS THIS SUCH A SURPRISE?!!!
PC has decided to run things the way he has and it seems to me like Russell's initial struggles are a result of that. He did lose valuable reps in the offseason. He hasn't had near as much time as other quarterbacks in the league to get into a rhythm and develop a rapport with his receivers. It seems to me that the man is human and needs to clock the hours. He has succeeded everywhere he has been and I believe that if given enough time, he will do the same here. Last year, it took our offensive line half the season to be passable. Wilson should at least have the same opportunity. Are our memories that short or am I just being too forgiving?
