07:10 AM ET 09.13 | Russell Wilson's stats were impressive during his first season, particularly in taking care of the football. [Wilson] threw only 10 interceptions in 16 regular-season games as a rookie, a few of them the result of a hit as he threw, a slipping wide receiver or a pass off the hands of his target. But whereas many see the Seattle Seahawks' quarterback as one of the better caretakers of the football, Donte' Whitner sees a guy who gives the defense a chance to make a play. "He does," the San Francisco 49ers safety told FOX Sports this week, following a practice in preparation for Sunday night's NFC West rivalry game between the teams. "Whenever you play that style of football where you're running around and some guys get open sometimes by (Wilson) running, you'll give (defenders) some opportunities."

Yup. Straight from the horse's mouth.

As many years as he's been a starter in the NFL he should know better than to give his opponent a little more motivation. I smell something burning.....could it be him?

What a bunch of BS, unless they're talking about Week 1

September 13, 2013  08:10 AM ET

Since when does Donte Whitner speak for the Niners? This must be why Russell dropped 42 points on them last December

These Niners are getting pretty arrogant. Yeah, they're good, but they are just asking to be taken down a notch.

Those talkers and squawkers always end up getting roasted.

Russell Wilson is freakin' smart! I'd rather have him than RGIII or Luck!

I'd wait another couple of seasons before saying that, but, well, you may be right.

My thought exactly.

The headline in no way matches the quotes. In another context it may sound like a compliment.

Watch the four-lettered network right before one of them plays on MNF. Stuart Scott will tell you which one is best..."(insert name) is the greatest rookie QB since the NFL began!"

Exactly.....People read the headline and don't even look at the context of the article.

Gonna be watching Sun. night to see if Wilson roasts Whitner. Bet it happens.

taking note of the wide open offense, how is that being "unimpressed" with Wilson?

Yes indeed they are and i sure hope it happens when they get to Seattle.

Well, from a horse maybe. Just not necessarily from its mouth.

Well apparently you do have him on your team. He is definitely not as good as Andrew Luck.
