I have liked Winston but I have thought that discussions of a franchise QB and a signature win were a tad premature.
I am now totally on board because he brought us back twice (and 2 pts) in a clear, concise and methodical manner. From a signature win perspective I don’t think it was all that from a performance perspective as I am not 100% on board with the defense. Improving but not there yet. Yet they pulled it out when it mattered. What makes this a signature win IMO is the timing. Just as confidence is building the team needed a confirmation. They got it today. From here on in teams will no longer look at us a W, and we will look at teams as how can we beat these bastards. That, people is why it was a signature won.
Great to see some consistent effort carried over from last week. Easily could have looked at a west coast trip coming off a huge win and thought no one would blame them if they lost. But went out with a purpose and took over in the 4th quarter to win. Think the statement win was last week. KC maybe people thought was smoke and mirrors, but the Seattle game was a beat down.
Clearly Winston is special and a natural leader. One thing I have taken note as of late is his pocket awareness, ability to avoid the danger, still read down the field and make a play. For 22, 2nd year in the league… I am just blown away. It feels good!
