Russell Wilson makes Yahoo!'s midseason All-Underrated Team at QB

Christian Petersen

Wilson gets his due, having led the Seahawks to a 5-4 record in 2012.

For the player who threw the most spectacular and infamous pass of the NFL season in Week 3, it's hard to figure out why Russell Wilson isn't getting enough credit. Well Russell, here's some. On Yahoo!'s Shutdown Corner blog, Doug Farrar names the Seahawks QB to his midseason All-Underrated Team, finishing ahead of division rival Alex Smith and Bucs QB Josh Freeman.

Farrar cites this past Sunday's three-touchdown showing against the Vikings as a sign that Pete Carroll has taken the training wheels off for Wilson, and that the third-round pick can succeed when given the opportunity. Coming out of Wisconsin, the league was uncertain that Wilson's 5'10 stature would allow him to play the position, allowing him to fall in the third round to Seattle.

As Farrar cites in the article, Wilson leads all rookie quarterbacks in touchdowns with 13. That's more than top picks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, with Griffin being the only of those two to have a superior passer rating to the Seahawks QB.
