Ranking the rookies: Russell Wilson and 2012 QB class
Those paradoxes illustrate why it is so hard to compare Wilson's season agains the other four rookies who began this season as their team's starting quarterback.
It's not just that Wilson isn't being asked to do as much as Andrew Luck in Indianapolis or Robert Griffin III in Washington; Wilson is not being allowed to do as much. He is cast in a different role for Seattle, one with less freedom and a smaller margin fo error.
