Rob Ryan praises Russell Wilson


The New Orleans Saints and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan have the task of trying to stop Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Ryan praised Wilson ahead of their meeting on Monday Night Football.

“Right now the guy is one of the star quarterbacks in the league,” Ryan said, via Pro Football Talk. “He does so many excellent things with his feet first of all, and then you can see the intelligence out there. I know it’s documented how smart he is, but it looks like he loves to play the game. He is so accurate, especially when he’s on the move, running around like he does making plays. He’s tremendous at that.”

Wilson is lumped in with other mobile quarterbacks in the league, like Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III, but Ryan thinks Wilson is the best.

“He’s probably the best scrambler in football,” Ryan said. “I think the guy is outstanding.  We got our work cut out for us.  The receivers are extremely talented. This is a well-coached team. They’ve got a hunter-killer back there running the ball.  This is what you get, I guess, this time of year and this will be a hell of a challenge.”
