Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said QB Russell Wilson is a million miles ahead of where he was last year. 'He threw a couple of balls today, things that we talked about over the offseason that he'd like to take a shot at, and he did it today just to see what would happen with full awareness of why he was doing it,' Carroll said.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he is not worried about opponents figuring out the team's read-option offense because the team only runs 15 to 20 percent of their plays out of the formation. Wilson said he believes the formation is effective because the team likes to throw out of the formation. 'Yeah, its tough to stop,' Wilson said. 'I think the thing with us, and why it works so efficient for us, is we love throwing the ball out of the formation. We do a lot of things, a lot of play action, a lot of different looks.'

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly may have changed his mind about coaching at the pro level after watching Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick perform in the divisional round playoffs last weekend, according to former NFL head coach Tony Dungy. 'Could it be that Chip Kelly watched the playoffs and watched Russell Wilson run a little bit of his read option in the spread offense, and watched Colin Kaepernick run a little bit more of it?' Dungy said. Dungy added he believes Kelly watched the playoffs thinking, 'My offense is way farther advanced than that, and maybe if this is going through the NFL, it might not be so tough.'
