It came in last week’s game against the Cardinals in Arizona, on a third-and-3 play where Wilson was in the grasp of linebacker Daryl Washington and being pulled down for a sack. Before his knee hit the turf at University of Phoenix Stadium – just before – Wilson got off a flip-pass that tight end
But also the kind of play the Seahawks have learned to expect from their second-year QB – who cornerback
“It was impressive. I didn’t even question that he was down,” Bevell said. “I knew all the way that he was up. And it’s a big play. And it’s a great job by Zach, too, because Zach had to go a long way to get over there.”
In typical Wilson fashion, when asked about that play on Friday – when the Seahawks continued to prepare for Monday night’s game against the Rams in St. Louis – he cut right to the catch, rather than the uncanny flip-pass that allowed it to happen.
As for his part in that big first down, Wilson offered, “It’s one of those things that I kind of have that never-say-die attitude, but at the same time you have to be smart with situations, too. I’m still learning. I’m still figuring things out. You’re still growing with it.”
Count that play as a growth spurt for Wilson, the offense and the entire team.
