ESPN’s Brock Huard Doesn’t Think There’s Pressure on Russell Wilson
ESPN’s Brock Huard joins Jeff Thurn on Wednesday’s edition of Overtime. Is there pressure on Russell Wilson this season?
Huard (@BrockESPN) is a college football analyst and radio host for 710 ESPN Seattle. He played in the NFL for three seasons in 2000 and 2001 with Seattle and 2003 with Indianapolis.
How will Wilson react after Seattle beat the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl?
"I don't think he has ton. I think he still has a really good team around him and nothing is changing. I will tell you what: Ron Jaworski's list came out this month and he had Russell Wilson at number nine, and when you look at that list, and you look at who he has standing at the top, something should stand out. That something is stability and I know Peyton (Manning) changed the organization, but his scheme and system didn't. Tom Brady's scheme and system has not. Aaron Rodgers's scheme and system has not. Drew Brees scheme and system has not. You get the rhythm and feel there? Well same thing in Seattle. Darerell Bevell and Tom Cable going into year three, I think there is a tremendous amount of continuity already with this team and group. Yes, they have added weapons and yes, Percy Harvin will play a much bigger role, and will hopefully take some of that pressure off the passing game and gets even easier passing plays, completions, and big yards, but I don't think there's any pressure. I don't think anything is going to change they will continue to try to be efficient in what they do. Throw it somewhere between 25 and 28 times a game and roll with that defense and run game."
