What I am most impressed with -- John -- and general manager Pete Carroll I don't know how that decision was made in the offseason go after Matt Flynn but they've paid a lot of money and days. Paid a lot of money because they believe that they had a guy who was going to be the starter and help this team get better and then you draft a kid in the third round well they don't draft Russell Wilson anticipate he's going to be the starter in the first game of the season. But. As sometimes it turns out this kid came in and play. Well earned the respect of his teammates and I get through the pre season and the easy thing to do for them. Would've then disabled Google map plan and then he struggles they'll put Russell Wilson. And you could see where there may be some arguments to do that because they've. You know. They've picked that guy they've they've brought back -- in. So. Their willingness to. Go with a rookie right from the start and knowing. That normally -- general growing pains that come with that. I thought settle a lot about the organization and for him then to go on and kind of do what he's done. From afar was was really impressive to me this wasn't. Andrew Luck this wasn't Robert Griffin the third round pick. Who really kind of overcame tremendous odds to even be afforded the opportunity to play in the first game of the season and many plays well and then like except -- -- -- last week. Then you get it you know then it kind of goes full circle and say you know and now I understand that this guy's the real deal.
