I expect a revival. If you want to write off a guy who was a true shutdown corner for about 5 years because he had a couple bad years with a new team, go ahead. But hes still young enough and I watched how great he was with the Raiders and expect big things from him.
5. The Philly comparison is pretty damn good if you ask me. Vick is the closest NFL comparison to Russell Wilson, so its funny you bring that up. But besides that, it wasnt even Vicks fault that the Eagles struggled so much. The similarities I see:
Aso is just bad, the situation in Philly may not have been the best...but he was horrible in press coverage as well. The guy took a massive step back and that is all there is to it. You got him for a bargain because no one else wanted him. If you get anything out of him I am happy for you...I was so psyched when we got him because I got to see him in Oakland, but hes nowhere near that level anymore.
Russell and Vick are nothing alike. Russell is a pocket passer first, gets rid of the ball quickly and was extremely efficient. Vick is an athlete first, takes sack after sack, and is efficient in giving the ball up.
