He is my hero. "GO HAWKS" has there ever been a player who signs off like that. He was destine to be a hawk!

Good interview. Just amazing how he seems like hes been in the league much longer. Imagine 5 years from now. Its nice to finally hear about the Hawks here in NY.

I missed the interview [will try to catch it later] but I love when he signs off with Go Hawks. Agree with Largent just give him a 10 year deal now and be done with it.

Well the way john works I am sure they will wait till he has one year left or when they can dump Flynn and then give him a long term deal. it just feels good to have our QB. We never had luck drafting a QB. And so many years we thought maybe he is the one. Even when Mirer was a rookie I though he was good but nothing compared to wilson. In 2 years I would offer Wilson a 8-10 year contract.

You do know that if he was drafted by another team, he probably wouldn't sign off the interviews with "GO HAWKS" right?

First time I have been able to hear the "Go Hawks" sign off. A very diplomatic answer when they had to bring up the Packer game. For those who missed it, you can find the interview here

http://espn.go.com/espnradio/show?showId=mikeandmike (3rd one down).

Thank goodness for ESPN radio. Sports radio in Canada is all about the NHL lockout (would rather take a kick to the groin than hear more about that)

I watched J.J. Watt signing off, "Go Texans" on an NFL Network interview. Looks like the Wilson end of the interview sign-off is starting to catch on.

Wilson is an absolute rarity in professional sports these days. Class act, amazing athlete, great head on his shoulders, smart. Happy as a fat kid in a candy store this guy is OUR quarterback!

Let's just hope that by the time he can negotiate contracts under the CBA that our FO locks him up for around 5 years.

I don't want to blow our load and sign him 8-10 years right off the bat. What happens in the case of major injuries? What about something extraordinary like a Flynn/Wilson competition position take-over?

Granted, I don't think we're gonna land another rookie that is going to dethrone RW in the near future, but we gotta be level-headed...

If we guarantee too much and then he ends up being a dud, good luck dealing him for even close to what we're paying.

Edit: Spelling/grammar

Good point - how stupid would he sound if he was drafted by the Raiders and ended every interview with Go Hawks..........

Let's wait til his contract expires and them put a transition tag on him. That will guarantee he stays, we could match any other offer.

Cough cough

His coach at Wisconsin Bret Bielema ends his interview in a similar fashion. Wonder if it is something Russell picked up from him. Heard an interview from Bielema and he ended it with Go Hogs!

Correct, we can't even begin negotations until the end of his 3rd season in the league. Assuming he stays healthy, this is a no brainer. The cool part is that he is signed to a 4 year deal, so we have him for the 4th year and get to start negotiating at the end of year three. That gives us a good window to be able to get the man paid and locked in long term before anyone else can even talk about signing him. It also allows us to be able to pay a guy who I feel is a solid backup, a little more to stay here as our backup (Flynn), without really having the position hurt the cap.

It was "On Wisconsin!" but now it's "Gone Wisconsin!" for Bret.

But yea it's a Wisconsin thing. Bret, Russell and Watt (all former badgers) are like that. Proud and devoted to where they are.

Russell Wilson at NC State was often saying "Go Pack!". Had he gone to that green pond where cheeseheads rise out of the muck Russell Wilson could have kept that same phrase.

Exactly. We'll wait until Flynn is gone and then use some of the money in the budget we were paying Flynn to pay Wilson.

Nope it was Go hogs. It was an interview after he was hired to be the coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks.

HA!

The nightmare of the Tim Ruskell regime seems like an age long gone now, but it really wasn't. To watch that roster slowly decay over the years killed the game for some of my old friends. They just couldn't watch as Hutch left, Alexander signed to a huge contract way too late in his career, and the other bone-headed moves ole Timmay made.

Post of the day in my book. Brilliant on so many levels... well played sir.

I might suggest that we wait until after his rookie year to sign him to a lifetime contract. Next year, defenses will be doing a much better job of keeping him in the pocket. I'm sure he'll adjust brilliantly, but there is still a ton to see.

I seriously think Mike and Mike is the only show that won't drop the Packers game.. they seriously need to move on. Yes we probably got a lucky break there, but good lord.. they've won 7 other games. LET IT GO.

What's funny is that RW screams "Ruskell pick"...

4 year starter from big school, impeccable character and short. The only difference is that Timmay would have picked him in the first round.

Russell Wilson CAN NOT sign a new contract right now. He HAS TO play out most of his rookie contract before he can re-up. The new CBA wanted it this way so that the veteran players would get the bigger share of the pie after they earned their contracts. The old CBA paid rookies too much and the new one pays the rookies that play really well too little. Sucks for Wilson and all the other low round picks that have definitely outplayed their rookie contracts, but it's great for the Seahawks because these guys still have years of playing time at a very low cost before they can even THINK about re-signing them.

I suggest we wait until we are allowed to resign him which is after three years under contract. I realize he signed a four year contract but if he starts for three years there is no way the team won't pay him with a nice signing bonus on top

There is a special pool of money when rookie out play their contracts. They get a bonus from the NFL.

Out of curiosity, if DangeRuss wins us a Superbowl within the next 3 years does he get the biggest long term contract we've ever offered to a player?

Ehhh I feel like Russell's shortness would have scared Ruskell off. I think he would have chosen someone like Kirk Cousins

Russel is not likely to ever have to worry where his next meal is coming from. He will be a multi-millionaire when he leaves the Seahawks. He will then transition into a lucritive TV football commentary contract for twenty years or so.... he was a Communications major in college..........his wife isn't likely to have to pick beans in the summer time.
