05:01 PM ET 11.01 | It's been talked about before ??? former Seahawk and NFL Hall-of-Famer Warren Moon's mentorship of rookie QB Russell Wilson. Now, it's being chronicled by NFL Films. "When it comes to this year's rookie QB class, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III have garnered most of the headlines. But up in Seattle, Russell Wilson is putting together an impressive debut season of his own ??? thanks in part to a familiar mentor." Moon, who happens to be the analyst on Seahawks radio broadcasts, first reached out to Wilson in the preseason, and Wilson didn't hesitate to take Moon up on his offer. The two talk throughout the week, and even on plane rides home immediately after games ??? an invaluable tool for the young signal-caller.

Because Russell, RGIII, Vick and Young are your normal run-of-the-mill pocket passers. Warren, other than color, are there any in the NFL like them playiing now??? You want to know why they would compare RGIII to Young???

I see improvement on-the-field from Wilson, and impeccable off-the-field responses to questions from reporters. It gives me hope that Seahowk football won't be lousy forever.

As someone who had the honour of seeing Warren Moon play in his prime in the CFL, I can tell you he's one of the greatest of all time. A fabulous player and a classy individual. Russell Wilson seems to be following in his footsteps in every way and can only get better with Moon's tutelage.

Russell Wilson is an average QB on a team with an above average defense. This guy is one of the most overrated QB's in the NFL.

Charged 2 or 3 times. She's difficult and runs her mouth too much.

So that makes it okay to beat his wife?
