Josh Wilson Gets Some Credit

by: Chris Sullivan

Well, well, well, what have we here? Josh Wilson has been nominated for NFL's Defensive Player of the Week, alongside Leon Hall, Jason Jones, Ed Reed, and Jason Taylor.

Wilson earned the nod by playing well against the Jets' wide recievers, pulling in two game-changing interceptions, and taking Favre down in a very timely sack. Check out the video on NFL.com to relive Josh's greatest hits of the week. Josh Wilson has been a huge, and pleasant, surprise this year--but so was Jennings last year, let's not forget. Do you guys think Josh is a long-term fix at corner, or should the Hawks continue seeking someone out? I think Wilson will stay on for the long haul, but only time will tell.

Either way, congrats to Josh for pulling in the game of his life on Sunday, and helping to pay Holmgren back with a home finale win! (Hat tip to Tom, thanks!)
