Russell Wilson will try to do battle against the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl Wilson has the heart of a warrior. This guys will to win is second to none.
But lets face it, he may not have the arm strength to go toe to toe with one of the NFL’s all time best. The Seahawks offense can’t get into a battle of who can score the most points in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Wilson won’t be able to win a shoot out with Manning, he doesn’t have the arm strength required to win a shoot out with the NFL’s MVP. Our West Coast annalist Clifford breaks it down best. Here is what he had to say about Wilson’s arm strength;
If he’s just standing flat-footed with time to throw he can fire the ball in
a straight line fairly well. But that’s not the only way to measure a
quarterback’s arm strength. Wilson simply DOESN’T have the arm strength to
throw the ball across his body or off his back foot or with linemen hanging
on him or throw crisp “sideline outs”, or fit balls into very tight windows
the way many other quarterbacks do…
Russell Wilson is going to have to rely on the Seahawks running game. The Super Bowl isn’t going to be played in a dome and the
weather in Giants Stadium isn’t going to be good.
The Seahawks defense is going to have their hands full trying to stop Manning and his Broncos offense. If Manning does get his Broncos
into the end-zone often, Wilson could be in trouble.
He is at a disadvantage when it comes to arm strength and the Seahawks could be playing from behind all game long. Wilson is a tough
kid and he will give it all he has.
The problem is he may not have enough to give.
