Russell Wilson addresses the media in 2022.

Denver Broncos Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson is on his way not only to winning another Super Bowl, but also to landing in the most prestigious place in the NFL, the Hall of Fame.

So whenever a Hall of Fame quarterback speaks, you listen.

Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner has his own Youtube channel called “Kurt Warner x QBConfidential”. Warner breaks down the film for various quarterbacks and gives his breakdowns to help youngsters learn from his vast football knowledge.

Warner posted two Youtube videos of himself breaking down Wilson’s film of his time with the Seattle Seahawks.

According to Warner, there’s a lot to love about the 33-year-old quarterback.

“A lot of excitement in Denver about what Russell Wilson brings to the table with a really good formation, a really good defense, a lot of young talent offensively,” Warner said. “And there should be a lot of excitement. Russell Wilson [is] one of the best quarterbacks in the league and watching him I am more and more impressed.

Warner talked about Wilson’s deep passing in Game 2. The deep ball is what makes Wilson one of the best quarterbacks in the game. Tossing the football down the field and doing it running is what Warner loves when he sees his tape.

“Whether he stays on the run or half rolls so he can get out in space, buy some time and make those big throws down the field,” Warner said. “Those are the things he’s really good at.”

Warner’s Underdog Story

Warner’s career was featured in the new 2021 film “American Underdog,” which goes beyond football. The movie revolves around Warner being a struggling amateur football pariah who couldn’t make it in the NFL, then got another shot and became a Super Bowl champion with the St. Louis Rams.

He was a two-time MVP and achieved arguably his most impressive achievement – taking the Arizona Cardinals to the Super Bowl at the age of 37.

While losing to the Steelers in Super Bowl 43, the already accomplished quarterback still managed to throw for 377 yards, the fourth most in Super Bowl history. A few years later, Warner announced his retirement and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017.

His career stats suffer as he played in the Arena Football League for four years and suffered a lot of injuries and inconsistencies at times. Warner has consistently gone 67-49 in his career as a starter and has thrown for 208 touchdowns and 128 interceptions.
