Few things in life are more satisfying than a real good “I told you so!” And right now I’m feeling pretty satisfied about Russell Wilson, the undersized, rookie quarterback, who on Sunday led the visiting Seattle Seahawks to a playoff victory over the Washington Redskins.

The AFC Championship will pit the Steelers against New England with the Pittsburgh Steelers going to the Super Bowl.

In the end I pick the Steelers to defeat the 49ers to win a record seventh Super Bowl title.

With his standout performance against Kansas City Friday night, rookie Russell Wilson has probably locked up the starting quarterback spot for the Seattle Seahawks.I don’t see how he can’t be first on the depth chart now. Wilson, who started for the first time, was sensational for the visiting Seahawks, who dismantled the Chiefs early and kept pouring it on.

Two other rookie quarterbacks, the Indianapolis Colts’ Andrew Luck and the Washington Redskins’ Robert Griffin III, have drawn most of the attention this season. They are much taller and thus deemed more NFL ready than Russell Wilson. And because of that they were drafted number one and number two overall in this year’s draft.

But don’t be surprised if “little” Russell Wilson, drafted in the third round, turns out to be better than both of them, and maybe even become a future Drew Brees.

I got another chance to see University of Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson on Saturday. He starred in the Badger’s 62-17 drubbing of Purdue. Wilson continues to pass my “eyeball-test”. There simply has not been a better college quarterback this year. Based on what I’ve seen he’s been even better than Stanford’s Andrew Luck, who is considered by many to be college football’s top quarterback and the NFL’s next great passer.
