Seahawks win in OT, improve to 7-5

Seattle Seahawks v Chicago Bears Getty Images

Russell Wilson, by definition, is still a rookie.

He just doesn’t play like one.

Wilson led a 97-yard go-ahead touchdown drive in regulation, then kept the Bears from getting the ball in overtime for a 23-17 win on the road.

Wilson’s 12-play, 80-yard drive was a beauty, capped by a 13-yard touchdown to Sidney Rice. Rice  crossed the plane before losing the ball, and the play stood up on review.

Wilson finished with 293 yards passing with two scores, and added another 71 yards rushing.

The Bears (8-4) gave away chances at points, and are having a hard time doing anything other than throw to Brandon Marshall. As maligned as their offensive line has been (and justifiably so), their lack of a complement to Marshall had Jay Cutler looking frustrated (though he often looks that way).

    The Bears are literally good for nothing. At home, in December, lose to a mediocre team. How very Chicago of them.

    Wilson is the real deal, he has been all season. The game should have been over on Tate’s TD. Marshall was a monster but Seahawk schemes were terrible in trying to cover him. Some really bad calls from the officials that could have changed the outcome of this game Lynch fumble, penalty called on special teams McCoy thrown to the ground by facemask – called on him for low block?? Edwards TD overturned….

    Chicago will miss the playoffs again, even with Cutler healthy. Old defense and a terrible oline won’t get you very far. Carimi is a bust…

    Russell. Wilson. Even.

  5. truthofthefootballbusiness says: Dec 2, 2012 4:42 PM

    Thank God Jerry Angelo isn’t the GM any more. Maybe now we can get a couple big-name OL in free agency and a few receivers and OL in the draft. Go Bears.

    Dang. Seahawks win is already half buried on the front page under news that happened earlier.

    Going from Tavaris Jackson one year to Russell Wilson the next year is like trading in a ten-year-old Chevy Cavalier for a brand-new Ferrari.

    Getting Wilson in the third round is like getting that Ferrari at the retail price of a Honda Accord.

    Wilson’s legend grows!

  9. kylexitron says: Dec 2, 2012 4:48 PM

    are Luck and RG3 so definitively better than wilson that he doesn’t deserve to enter the rookie of the year conversation?

    4 games in a row with a passer rating over 100, 5 in a row with it over 90-something? 19 TD’s, leading all rookies?

    Seabags are for real, and can win the division, now that the 49ers now have what amounts to two losses in the standings to St. Louis ha.

  11. dericivy says: Dec 2, 2012 4:49 PM

    Can we finally, at least mention, Russell Wilson in the RoY running now?

  12. bucrightoff says: Dec 2, 2012 4:50 PM

    Its amazing him and Luck both are already right there for most clutch. Exciting young QBs or what?

  13. Bearfan54 says: Dec 2, 2012 4:55 PM

    Hats off to Wilson. He’s definitely a gamer. The Bears unfortunately aren’t very good. letting a rookie QB drive down the field twice is not acceptable to Bears fans.

  14. bigbaldpapahawk says: Dec 2, 2012 5:00 PM

    Do you really think that the NFL is going to let Russell Wilson enter the run for RoY over the #1 and #2 picks?

  15. otis52gsh says: Dec 2, 2012 5:08 PM

    I can’t believe we lose at home to these clowns. Soon the roid brothers will be sitting and chicken hawks will be done. The league might want to test carrol too.

  16. larryboodry says: Dec 2, 2012 5:13 PM

    It is so tempting to say we beat ourselves, but I won’t…Yes, we should have kicked that early FG, and yes, Earl Bennett dropped a perfectly-thrown pass that would have been a TD…BUT…Seattle driving 93 yards on their final drive in regulation, and then driving 80 yards to open the overtime period is what really beat us. Our D looked absolutely pathetic trying to stop Wilson from scrambling, and couldn’t tackle for squat on Tate’s TD.

    Starting to look like 11-5 (if we’re even that lucky) and a Wild Card berth…I mean, seriously, if we can’t win today’s game at home, my faith in beating GB at home just went from ‘so-so’ to ‘nonexistent.’

  17. joeychargers says: Dec 2, 2012 5:24 PM

    Everyone knows they should be 6-6.

  18. bearssuck says: Dec 2, 2012 5:35 PM

    Even though Pete Carol is a doooosh. Man i love it when the Bears loose!

    And as we say in good old Wisco (after further review the Bears still suck)! :)

    Great post Larry, as a hawks fan, it’s comforting to see a rational mature post from the team we just beat. Rather than “we just lost to a mediocre/crap team”. Wilson is going to be fun to watch over his career. Always respect the Bears, for what that’s worth. Love urlacher.

  20. nomoreseasontix says: Dec 2, 2012 5:54 PM

    Hmmm.
    They beat the Bears AND the officials.

    Someone’s gonna catch some grief over that. It’s off script…

  21. jtylert says: Dec 2, 2012 5:57 PM

    I say hats off to the Bears pass blocking. Seahawks basically got two touches on Cutler for the entire game. I think the Hawk’s run D had a legitimate chip on their shoulder after giving up some big games, so they came out and stopped Forte effectively. But… the Bears totally snuffed out the pass rush.

    Exciting game is an understatement. Fun to watch from either side.

    Thanks…For what it’s worth from me, your team always plays us tough, and I thought your win over GB was legit, but to be honest I am not a fan of Pete Carroll, and was (selfishly) upset that your CBs were allowed to play pending appeal…That said, my team had a WR busted for trying to be a Chicago drug lord, so who am I to talk?

  23. Spencer says: Dec 2, 2012 6:18 PM

    I’ve been so impressed with Wilson. He’s a fun guy to watch.

  24. jshawaii22 says: Dec 2, 2012 6:26 PM

    …I say hats off to the Bears pass blocking. Seahawks basically got two touches on Cutler for the entire game…

    and by NOT getting to Cutler we avoided the “Roughing the QB” that COST us the Miami game last week when Thomas whacked the QB on Bobby Wagner’s int. Go Figure?

  25. anyonebutbrady says: Dec 2, 2012 7:10 PM

    While I normally would agree with you, @papahawk, it appearsbthat Wilson is going to force his way into RoY discussions whether the haters like it or not. He may not have come into the league with the pedigree ofLuck or the swagger of RGIII, but he came into the league nonetheless & has found a way to lead his team to wins against Rodgers, Brady, & Cutler…

  26. 88ibis says: Dec 2, 2012 7:28 PM

    First 8 games Wilson had 10 TDs and 8 INTs.
    Last 4 games Wilson has 9 TDs and 0 INTs.

  27. beastmode5150 says: Dec 2, 2012 7:54 PM

    Another thing to remember, 4 of Wilson’s INT’s are on off of Receivers hands, and another when the TE fell down on his route.

  28. iowahbr says: Dec 2, 2012 8:08 PM

    Out coached and outplayed in the 4th quarter and OT. The best thing for the Bears would be to lose the next 4 so we and Lovie could part company. If you watched the game the Seattle coach seemed involved (although I don’t like all the antics) and Lovie had that old “I’m dazed” look on his face.

  29. tone360 says: Dec 2, 2012 11:42 PM

    I’m still in shock. They got us, Lynch played well and so did Tate. Not enough pressure on Wilson and they picked apart the D.B’s. Nice win Seattle. If we can it together, maybe we see you in the playoffs.
