Will quarterback Russell Wilson avoid a sophomore slump?

September 5, 2013 

Heading into his second season, Wilson said he’s not concerned about the possibility of a sophomore slump.

“I don’t even know those words,” Wilson said. “I don’t pay attention to it. I think the biggest thing is just focusing on tomorrow and focusing on the day — the rest of the day that I have and the next couple hours I have here.”

Wilson completed 64 percent of his passes and threw for 3,118 yards, including 26 touchdowns with 10 interceptions as a rookie.

But the University of Wisconsin product said he can improve those numbers. In particular, Wilson is focused on doing a better job of anticipating routes and playing with more rhythm.

“I’m a lot further along than I was last year,” Wilson said. “Even though I played a lot more last year, I’ve come a lot further. My knowledge of the game and my knowledge of the situations are farther along.”
