That shows the evolution of QB in the NFL.]]> Russell Wilson — a third-round pick the Seattle Seahawks who was selected sooner than predicted — was the exact prospect now as he was in his draft year of 2012, how would the league view him?

“He’d be a first-round pick,” ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay said last month. “That’s the difference. That’s a perfect example.”

Wednesday night, the San Francisco Chronicle reported the Oakland A’s expect Murray to enter the NFL draft. Murray, the Heisman Trophy winner, would be walking away from a $4.6 million signing bonus, earned when the A’s selected him ninth overall in last year’s MLB draft, and a spot in big league spring training. Murray could still choose baseball over football, but the A’s reported outlook is a major signifier]]>

<![CDATA[What We Learned: Prescott is ready, Cowboys are gritty, resolved]]>
It wasn’t always pretty (sound familiar), but the Cowboys got the job done when many people didn’t think they were capable of beating Russell Wilson and Seahawks. Here’s a few things we learned.

It’s easy to watch Prescott play and come away with criticisms; he doesn’t always have the accuracy one would like and he often holds onto the ball too long to take an unnecessary sacks. However, when the Cowboys need a play in the biggest moments of the game, Prescott delivers. Just like he’s done time and time again throughout the regular season, after the Seahawks took the lead, Prescott brought the offense down the field and took the lead right back]]>

Here is a position-by-position look at the team’s performance in Saturday Night’s victory.

Head coach Jason Garrett was able to notch his second playoff win in his nine-year career.  But little thanks should go to his offensive coordinator as Scott Linehan called an extremely conservative game overall.  His mixture in the first half was somewhat tentative and allowed the Seattle offense to hang in the game despite a lack of firepower.  The defensive strategy was well conceived and executed to near perfection.  The vaunted Seattle run game was held in check, gaining just 73 yards on 24 attempts and Russell Wilson’s crew were suffocated on third downs, converting just two times in 13 tries]]>

<![CDATA[QB Russell Wilson has parting message for fans after season ends]]> Russell Wilson isn’t too familiar with cleaning out his locker early in January. Usually on the field deeper into the playoffs, Wilson’s season felt cut short after the elimination Saturday night at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys.

Regardless, Wilson is already looking ahead to next year but had a message for the fans as he packed up his belongings Sunday afternoon.

RUSSELL. WILSON.
