Russell Wilson played well enough against the Chiefs on Friday to get strong consideration for a starting shot with the Seahawks. Going 13 for 19 with 185 yards and two touchdowns, the rookie out of Wisconsin helped guide Seattle to a 44-14 win in Kansas City. Building off impressive performances against the Broncos and Titans the first two weeks of the preseason, Wilson is definitely making a claim to be tabbed the starter going into their Week 1 game in Arizona.
The reaction to Wilson's first two outings were tempered by the fact that he was facing second or third-string competition. Doing what he did in Kansas City was impressive, however, and it may be the push he needed to convince the coaching staff to give him the reigns. Looking at the first few games on the Seahawks schedule, however, might be enough for Pete Carroll to go with the safe pick in Matt Flynn, who sat out Friday's game with elbow soreness.
