Russell Wilson might not be loved by the media, and is overshadowed by Rg3 and Luck, but he shouldn't be.
Lets not forget, Rg3 and Luck had their jobs HANDED TO THEM.
Wilson had to beat out free agent, Matt Flynn. You know, Aaron Rodgers prodigy.
Seahawks just beat the Cards by 50 some odd points, where's the love?

Lets also not forget Luck walked into a horrible team and has them in playoff contention. Quite a few had Seattle as a possible wild card team heading into the season.
And while Wilson is playing great he is still the third best QB of the discussion. If you're building your franchise and you get your choice of the 3 you're going to take Luck or RGIII. Which is nothing against Wilson its just those two are phenomenal rookie QB's. The Colts shouldn't be where they are now. And while Luck has thrown his share of INT's he still brings his team back when it counts.
All 3 QB's have got to have their teams excited for the future but Wilson will always be the third best among the group.

Name the quarterback who has beaten the Pats, Packers, and Bears this season?
answer: Russell Wilson
Wilson keeps his team in games. He's not prone to turn it over. Rg3 is a horrible health risk, and Luck, while great as a rookie, does throw too many tight passes.
Russell Wilson beat the best team in the league, the Patriots. #my opinion..
Luck, he got creamed.

First off this isn't between RGIII and Wilson.
Second Luck has to throw too many tight passes as you say because he is given the ball and expected to lead his team to victory. Luck doesn't have Marshawn Lynch, a great defense, and a great 12th man in the stadium that Wilson plays in.
Luck is expected to lead his team to victory from the start of the game. Wilson is expected to keep his team close and have others pick up the slack. True Wilson might be needed to lead a game winner but usually doesn't have to win shootouts. When the Seahawks "beat" the Packers they did so by keeping the Packers in the teens. The defense Seattle has is incredible. You give Luck what Wilson is working with and Seattle is a better team.
To me its as easy as that. Would Indy be where they were with Wilson? What about Seattle with Luck? Obviously this is hypothetical but I would have to think Indy isn't in the playoff hunt nor above .500 with Wilson while Seattle may have another win or two with Luck.
Both are great and neither Seattle nor Indy should have to look for another QB for about a decade or so but I gotta give the edge to Luck there isn't a thing he can't do.
