Oct 22, 2015; Santa Clara, CA, USA; Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (3) carries the ball against San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks (55) during the fourth quarter at Levi
This wasn’t vintage Russell Wilson
Russell Wilson was efficient. He completed 75% of his passes and averaged 9.8 yard per attempt. There was also a beautiful dome thrown to Tyler Lockett for a touchdown.
Unfortunately, there were also a pair of regrettable interceptions. The first was a late throw that could have been a TD if thrown on time. When pressure made Wilson move, Baldwin re-covered, and Wilson had other options wide open.
The 2nd pick was worse. Wilson wasn’t under pressure (though he had just escaped pressure) and he heaved the ball downfield into double coverage. Kearse slowed down and made no effort to go after the ball, but it never should have been thrown there.
These are the types of decisions that Wilson simply cannot make. Luckily, they are also the type that he doesn’t make most weeks.
Seattle needs Wilson to get back to avoiding those types of mistakes if they’re going to start beating teams that are better than the 49ers.
