Here’s more of what Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had to say to the media today: Before the start of the season, the Seattle Seahawks voted quarterback Russell Wilson as one of their three team captains. “Don’t get him hit,’’ Cable says, referring to Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson. “That’s our mantra right now.” It’s just his command of what we’re asking of him. He’s just more comfortable. Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell know that every time Russell Wilson runs with the ball there’s risk involved to the one player this team can’t afford to lose. Carroll said they’re willing to accept some danger with Wilson because of his ability to make good things happen. Not nearly as hyped up as some of the guys drafted ahead of him in 2012 Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck, Washington’s Robert Griffin III, Miami’s Ryan Tannehill and Cleveland’s Brandon Weeden were the quarterbacks who went in the first round that year Wilson, chosen by Seattle with the 75th overall pick in the third round, has been as dynamic and productive as any of them. So it’s one of those things that it’s a happy medium you know? So the biggest thing is just continue to try to deliver for our football team in big situations and then third down, try to be great and in red zone, be great too as well, and in terms of just eliminating any turnovers possible.
