This Sunday the Seahawks starting quarterback returns to a state that knows how much talent this guy has. When Russell Wilson and his Seattle Seahawks pay a visit to Charlotte to take on the Panthers, the state of North Carolina just might be rooting for Wilson.
He spent a lot of time there in his college days and they know what a great athletic talent he is. The Seahawks should be able to destroy the Panthers. Seattle looks like a powerhouse coming into the 2013 season and Wilson is leading the way this season.
There is little hope of Carolina being able to stop this Seahawks offensive attack. Wilson and company may have the game won by the half. If Seattle’s defense can control Cam Newton, which I think they can, the Seahawks should have a blow out in week one.
This is short of like a homecoming for Wilson. He spent time at North Carolina State University before transferring to Wisconsin. In 2008, he played both football and baseball there and could have had a professional career in either sport. The Seahawks are fortunate that he picked football.
At only 24-years-old Wilson plays like a seasoned veteran. He has the calm that some playing the game for years are still missing. If he opens the season the way he is capable of playing, he is going to be unstoppable this season. And so are the Seahawks………
