Will The Seahawks’ Game-Winning Touchdown That Shouldn’t Have Counted Spell The End Of The Replacement Ref Era?
So. Um. Wow. That was… eventful. The Seahawks just pulled out a last-second, 14-12 win over the Packers thanks to a 24-yard scoring strike from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate on the last play of the game. Normally, the talk surrounding such a play would be, “Holy crap, the Seahawks actually pulled it off! What a classic finish!” Not this time.
Seattle head coach Pete Carroll has named rookie Russell Wilson the starting quarterback of the Seahawks, and, as of this moment, he’s owned in only 22.1% of ESPN fantasy leagues and 24% of Yahoo! leagues. Sweet fancy Moses in a tuxedo suit, you need to go grab him right now if he’s available.
Russell Wilson was selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the 75th overall pick. Coming off a senior season at Wisconsin in which he threw 33 TDs and only four INTs, he’s now the third QB behind Matt Flynn and Tavaris Jackson. Wilson is particularly known for his ability to move and throw on the run, as well as tuck it and go when the play breaks down.
