Thumbs down ESPN’s Colin Cowherd says Russell Wilson is a Top 5 QB–Better than Drew Brees

This is actually something I’d expect to hear from the likes of Mr. Skip Bayless. Colin Cowherd isn’t a stranger to his dubious opinions at times, but they are after all his opinions.

On Cowherd’s afternoon radio show on ESPN ‘The Herd’ he spent a lot of time heaping praise on rookie QB Russell Wilson. And to his credit, Wilson deserves that praise, despite the loss, but he’s had a remarkable season. Cowherd decided to one up all others by flat out proclaiming that Russell Wilson has now elevated himself to a top 5 Quarterback in the NFL, even better in some regards than Drew Brees.

I don’t know why I have to wait to say that I think the guy is a top 5-6 Quarterback in the League…He’s Drew Brees, with a better arm and better feet.

If Russel Wilson was better, he would of scored in the first half of the Seattle/Atl game.

Problem with guys like Kaepernick and Wilson is they only good for 1 hit wonders like Vick and Scam Newton.

Count the records brees owns after being told he only had a 25% chance he'd ever play again
Count the Super Bowl wins and the fact that brees has carried this team for the last 3 years when our D had been pathetic

I have a feeling both shows will be cancelled soon. Their ratings have dropped like a safe in the ocean.

It's what Cowherd does. He makes absurd points for attention and promote the show. Bad press is good press for him. Don't do him the honor and respond to his garbage.

He's the definition of a troll.

Uhhh... that's premature e ... er.... reporting. There is plenty of time before we can start making comparisons.

Re: ESPN’s Colin Cowherd says Russell Wilson is a Top 5 QB–Better than Drew Brees

I'm not sure if Russell Wilson is even a top 10 QB, yet. He was efficient enough in the things he was asked to do, and he was easily an upgrade to anything they've had since Matt Hasselbeck, in his prime. But that is a pound it out offense, and Marshawn Lynch had a really, really good year. I had no idea Lynch was capable of that kind of season, after all his previous under achievements.

I don't see Wilson being able to carry an offense without a complimentary running game, and the truly elite QB's have to be able to do that. People like cowturd are really overreacting to the fact that these rookie QB's were able to get into the playoffs. It is a team game however. These guys have a long way to go, to be elite.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Cowherd needs to lay off the crack and pay more attention to Michelle Beadle's crack.

Re: ESPN’s Colin Cowherd says Russell Wilson is a Top 5 QB–Better than Drew Brees

Wilson was impressive this year but it is too early to call him a top 5 QB.
There wasn't much film on him this year so we will see what he does next year after defenses get to look at this year's film. You do have to give him credit though, it's not like he has great receivers.
