Hawkblogger put some interesting screen shots from the all-22 tape. It kind of makes you wonder...

I share the same points that Hawkblogger makes.

Russell Wilson has missed wide-open players, especially in the Rams game.

*He missed Zach Miller early in the game near the end zone, when he tried to hit Sidney Rice in the end zone (for an incompletion)

*On a near interception to Doug Baldwin on the sideline, he had Golden Tate open who was running up the middle of the field.

*He also had Doug Baldwin open on the INT to Anthony McCoy (it wasn't Wilson's fault though, McCoy was also open)

Our receivers haven't been that bad this season. Zach Miller in particular has been good IMO. He is getting open across the middle, but Russell Wilson obviously struggles with those throws. He is also taking off and not looking to pass when

a) The protection is holding up
b) Receivers are open down the field.

There has been plenty of rookie QBs that have missed wideopen WRs and it has nothing to do with their height... this is all part of being a rookie..

Yeah, Russell Wilson is just making rookie mistakes, which are to be expected.

That ball was thrown well behind Baldwin. Yeah, he should have caught it but RW didn't do him any favors. RW has been terrible this season.

Talking about the one thrown to McCoy not the one that got taken away from Baldwin.

This is more pronounced problem with Wilson than most rookie QB's. He'll bail when he does not need to effectively cutting the field in half. He just looks like he is not ready for the NFL right now.

I'm not going to say Wilson hasn't been skittish in the pocket so far this year, but that's no reason to bench him either.. I say if he go out vs. the Panthers and totally falls apart then we should think about Flynn starting, but is he plays well and then comes home vs. the Patriots and we win that game he should still be the starter, no question about it.

I would say that his height has played a part in some instances. I can't say for certain though.
