Russell Wilson talks about upcoming game against Lions

Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson joined Bob and Groz on 710 ESPN Seattle to discuss his upcoming NFC showdown against the Detroit Lions Friday morning.

Wilson told the radio duo that he feels that the Lions secondary is very exploitable as long as can "get the ball out on time." Here's exactly what the young signal caller had to say about Detroit's defense:

"The biggest opportunity, obviously, is their secondary, just because they've had some guys in and out with injuries and everything, which is unfortunate for them...Obviously they have a tremendous, tremendous defensive line; their linebackers are playing at a high level. And they've made some plays in the defensive secondary as well."

Wilson went on to share that he hasn't faced any surprises through the first seven games of his rookie year because he's "been prepared since Day 1." He also expressed that he doesn't mind dealing with the limitations the coaches have put on some of the passing game plans as he will "do whatever it takes to win."

Overall, Wilson has compiled 1,230 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions on 104-of-175 passing (59.4%) with almost half of his rookie campaign in the books. All seven of his picks have come on the road this season though so it will be interesting to see how he deal's with Detroit's crowd come Sunday.
