This week before the Seahawks took on the Minnesota Vikings, I had the extreme pleasure of meeting up with an old Navy friend. Mike and I were stationed in Idaho together, going through the Navy’s rigorous nuclear power program. I hadn’t seen him since 1985. We caught up, albeit briefly, on our lives post-Navy over dinner on Saturday at McCormick and Schmick’s downtown, and we spent some time together pre-game Sunday morning. It is always great seeing a long-lost friend.
After two weeks on the road, with two consecutive losses, I am sure the Seahawks welcomed the sight of the 12th Man with the zeal of renewing a long-lost friendship. Nothing cures the road woes like a little home cookin’, and the Seahawks served a supremely satisfying smorgasbord on Sunday.
Despite a valiant effort by Adrian Peterson of the Vikings, it was the Seahawks’ offense that provided a 10 point lead midway through the fourth quarter that forced the Vikes to abandon their running game. As I expected, with the game in Ponder’s hands and not Peterson’s, the defense stepped up with a tremendous performance against the pass, yielding a paltry 44 yards.
Russell Wilson had another impressive performance, with three touchdowns and no interceptions. It wasn’t a jaw-dropping performance, but it was very efficient and extremely impressive for a rookie. More importantly, you can see the game just slowing down for the rookie quarterback. He is making good decisions with the ball, and spraying it all over the field to multiple receivers.
If Wilson keeps developing at this rate, I am very excited for what may be coming down the road. This Sunday, it is the Jets coming to CenturyLink, and I fully expect to see the continuing maturation of Wilson at the pro level. There is no question this kid has “it.” I am looking forward to the show.
