You're right, I'm not a fan.

You're right, I'm not arguing that they are pretty good right now. They look great in fact.

This thread is about Russell Wilson... and I like the guy. I wish I could say the same for Sherman, Tate, and Carroll.

Tell your husband not to get too excited... it's been a while since the the #1 team that everyone talked about all season on the news and ESPN actually won the Super Bowl.

First time Russell Wilson's name has been mentioned in the last fifteen posts.

I see a lot of stuff here that needs to go. Not sure if I don't need to lock this altogether.

Still haven't had time to purge this thread regarding posts that need to go.

Due to request, I'm going to re-open this thread. I'm also going to reword the thread title to Russell Wilson discussion thread.

Stay on topic. No personal attacks .I'm starting to get more active regarding inquiries to the Senior mods to have them check on newer members who are setting up with duplicate accounts. And with their contributions to this message board being iffy at best.

Thread re-opened.

Russell is like a legion commander in the Roman Army. Tools and training designed to make a machine work. If he has the humility and intelligence to play that role, he can defeat people way more brilliant than he is. I think you could go back through eons and find the principle unwavering. History books remember only superstars, but every one of them stood or fell according to the effectiveness of their followers.

I'm a Russell Wilson believer. I think he's arrived. It's astonishing how mature he is for someone who just completed only his second season in the league. I was already thinking highly of Wilson before the playoffs, but his performance against the 49ers was, in my opinion, indicative of a quarterback playing at the elite level. Statistically, he's not necessarily blowing up the stat sheet, but he makes huge plays again and again. You can't look past that. The Seahawks now are right where the 49ers were in 1981 or where the Patriots were in 2001. They're at the cusp of something big. Whether they get there or not remains to be seen, but if they do become the league's next great team, Wilson will no doubt have a lot to do with that. I really like this kid.

Wilson is a great kid. I love his attitude. I guess the problem for him, if you call it a problem, is that when you have such a great defense you don't need to put up insane QB stats. Matter of fact, you shouldn't. An offense, like Denver, that scores tons of points does it for various reasons but mainly it's because they have to to win. Wilson doesn't need to. He just needs to move the ball methodically and not make errors. Which is exactly what he does. But he also has the added ability to make big plays if need be. He's a great fit in Seattle.

Watching him in college there was never any doubt in my mind that he was the real deal.

Regardless of what anyone thinks/thought about Russell Wilson, he just showed everyone with his leadership during the Super Bowl that he is a top-notch quarterback and a great leader. He not only demonstrated his physical ability to play the game, and play it well, he also exhibited the intellect needed to lead a team to the ultimate victory.

Most significantly, Russell Wilson is a devout Christian, who is very humble. He ALWAYS gives thanks, honor and appreciation to God in same way, form or fashion. If you know the Word of God, you hear this all the time when he speaks. When he said God had "brought him from a mighty long way" after winning the Super Bowl, that was enough said; those words-albeit simple-embodied the criticisms, the loss of his father, etc., to where he is today-a Lombardi trophy-holding quarterback. His athleticism, Christianity and intelligence will make him "a force to be recknoned with" in the game of football and beyond for many years to come.

Congratulations, Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks!

I had no idea, despite watching dozens of interviews, that he was Christian and I hardly think that is the most important thing about him. Couldn't care less.

I do wish we could have won that rose bowl.
