no not at all,.. i was simply making the argument, that it doesn't matter what size you are, you run risk of being injured, and i used Big Ben as one example...
Both guys will be injured throughout their careers. This sport is too rough to not get injured. And honestly, it's more luck anything else if its a bad injury or a 1 or 2 game injury.
I don't think the size issue has any bearing on injuries. The size issue does effect Wilson's ability to throw over/around the O-line/D-line, but he has shown more that adequate skills to throw through windows and scramble to get passing lanes.
Both guys will be good and both guys will be good for awhile. All this bickering is just offseason doldrums. Both teams will be good and I assume that Seattle will win in Seattle and SF will win in SF (pending no big injures to Wilson or Kaep).
