Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Wilson didn't know they were playing the Pack next week?

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE: PG-13
  • In the post game on the field interview Wilson admitted to not knowing they were going to play the Packers next week. Now likely he was so dialed into what he and the Hawks were doing that he did not even think to look but man I don't think I could have that laser focus. I guarantee that many of the Hawks knew who they were facing even before the game started but that is why Russ is who he is.

    Go Hawks!!!!

    So you're saying he lied.

  • There's really no way to go w/out knowing these days. I'm not calling him a liar, I think he's being a leader.

    Of course you do. You believe everyone is lying as long as their lips are flapping.

  • I don't know if he was or not. I just don't care. I love the focus and it's just another subtle way to show that he concentrates on what is in front of him. Not looking forward.

  • I can certainly understand him not knowing, it makes no difference who or where you play next week, only if there is a next week.. Worry about the game today and the rest takes care of it's self. Lose today and it doesn't matter.
    It's only the fans that get all caught up in if A and B happens, we go to C, if A gets upset, we will play J. All wasted energy in my opinion, they will prepare for the next game after today, today is the only thing that matters.

  • He wasn't trying to act like he was hot #### or anything, he just mentioned it casually and the interviewer pursued it. I think he just didn't want to look past the game they had to play, which would be dangerously presumptuous and distracting. That ain't who he is, he's a pro.

  • He's clearly the leader of this team, has been for years. It's scary to thing what the record would be w/out the guy.

    How dare you question his truthfulness!!! Actually I saw a vid after the game of another player who also said he had no idea who they were facing next week so it's possible. Either way it dont matter...

  • Honestly I believe him. Players don't focus ahead like us fans do. It's entirely probable he wasn't even thinking about next week's potential opponents before or during the game.

  • Good point, it's Russ, he probably really didn't know. Not that it matters even a little bit.
    But his focus is next level, so it's actually likely. All I know is he knew how to tear out the hearts of the Eagles.....again.

  • With the first going into OT so not ending until well into warm-ups, I can see some players getting into focus mode and not knowing. Especially these days when so many guys have headphones on (like Russ does) so you may not even catch any teammate talk.
    That last 30 min those guys are probably locked into the job at hand so I don't find it unlikely that people weren't concerned about how the first game ended.

    This is the reality. Fans way overestimate how much players care who or where they play. They don't care and they really don't care in the playoffs as long as they are still in it. They are nowhere near us fans in that category. Most of them don't even care enough to know who's next on the schedule during the regular season most of the time and that is set in stone for months before they even start.

  • Nah, Russ is so locked in, he probably didn't know. It doesn't even sort of matter. No reason to not believe him at this point. He won the game and is about to win another :lol:
    Plus, everyone knows I'm one of the biggest Russ fans. Not that it hasn't been thrown in my face about 133 times. And that's ok :irishdrinkers:

  • We'll never know if he was aware of the Vikings game -- and it doesn't matter. Don't you have anything better to think about?

  • If I’m him, I wouldn’t even want to know if I won the MegaMillions lottery before kickoff on GameDay.
    Dude was gonna have angry 300 pounders in his face all day. I’m pretty sure he was mostly focused on how to win without getting killed.

    Pre game warm ups, getting last minute stuff together and dressed, probably a offense and defense meeting before they hit the tunnel and then warm setting up for game, Vikings Saints were still playing when this all started.
