Russel Wilson is nothing special. He is a good/average QB that makes few mistakes and I'm happy for his victory. And he is from the Big 10.
Wilson is pretty special when it comes to his composure and leadership skills. He doesn't get flustered or out of sync if plays don't go his way or he gets tons of pass rush pressure. Manning sure looked flustered on Sunday, you never saw that out of Wilson during the season when he was getting lots of pressure. I would agree he doesn't throw for tons of yards like a Manning, Brady, or Rogers but give him some time and to this point he hasn't needed to throw for tons of yards to win the Super Bowl.
