The Russell Wilson hype machine is in full force but the National Football Post's Joe Fortenbaugh isn't buying it.
The LVH sets the over/under on the Seahawks at 7.5 (+115) but Fortenbaugh thinks that Wilson's early success and eventual impact on the Seahawks is overblown.
Time to put my money where my mouth is. I've got nothing against Russell Wilson as a person. He's dedicated, hard-working and intelligent. But I believe he's a vastly overrated quarterback and I think the twitter universe is putting way too much emphasis on what he's done in meaningless preseason games. ...I'm going to sit tight for a few days to see if the hype forces oddsmakers to adjust north before I lock this one in, but rest assured, I'm making this play.
So the question is: Would you take the over or the under with Wilson at quarterback?
