Steady Wilson comes up with Super performance

By Tim Booth

POSTED:


WILSON WAS aggressive throwing downfield after struggling with that aspect of the pass game late in the regular season and in the playoffs. Wilson had four completions of more than 19 yards, including a 37-yard throw to Doug Baldwin in the first quarter and a 23-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse.

"For everybody who said we were mediocre, not the main dish, we came up big," Tate said. "Three of our four (receivers) scored touchdowns. Eat your words because we balled."

In the immediate aftermath, Wilson thought back to a players' meeting before the season when he presented the question, why couldn't this version of the Seahawks be the first in franchise history to win the Super Bowl? It was never a stated goal, but it fit with Carroll's championship mantra.

"It's emotional to think about all the guys, the great players that have played before us," Wilson said. "That was our thing. We wanted to say, 'Why not us?' We believed that. It was real for us.

"I knew that we were here for a reason."

IRT worth on Wilson. Actually, Wilson did no better than Manning. In fact, Manning had better stats than Wilson, except one receiver for Wilson fought his way to the end zone to give Wilson 2 TDs. Manning had better yards, completions and percent completion. A defensive player deserved the MVP. Take our pick.

The only quarterback all week that we were told was the greatest was the only one slated to win it. Instead it was given to a fill in line backer that intercepted that quarterback and was at the righ places at the right time. It defys all NFL logic that the great quarterbacks are now dinosaurs. The Newschool are quick,smart and elusive, and they have the same tint as President Obama. Oh and they are paid minimum wage according to NFL QB scale.

In this case, Wilson truly deserved it because he made the passes to get the third downs that helped keep Manning off the field and his defense the rest they needed in their all out effort to get or pressure Mannning. Kam Chancellor, Percy Harvin or the whole defensive line could have gotten it too and there would be no compliants about the game's MVP. Smith was a surprise and just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
