    If by "come back" and play football you mean go to an entirely new school, in an entirely new conference, learn a new offense, take the reins of a new team, be voted captain by his new teammates within a couple weeks, then proceed to win 11 games, win this new conference while setting a handful of school records, then get picked in the 3rd round of the NFL draft, costing his team a shocking ONE draft pick, then win 11 games and tie the all-time NFL rookie TD passing record, then yes. He did decide to come back and play football. You get a cookie.


    While a good and funny post - if RW hits the curveball in minor league and sees a future as a star then doubtful that he would have played football again.... He took a deal to play baseball. He gave back the signing money to play football. He came back.....

    Yes captain obvious, Wilson has always been an amazing football player. Not sure what prompted this idiotic, hostile reply.

  • On Wilson NC State career: Remember that the guy sitting behind Wilson at NC State was Mike Glennon, the third highest rated QB recruit behind Andrew Luck out of high school. His parents demanded that he be given a shot to play at NC State, else he would have transferred. Mike Glennon is the "prototypical NFL passer": 6ft6 tall, strong arm, somewhat mobile within the pocket. Russell Wilson really struggled his last season at NC State, because they tried to make him a pass only QB, playing him mostly from the pocket. He threw something like 14 INTs (28 TDs), the most INT he ever threw in his 3 years at NC State.
    The coach wanted an "open competition". RW saw that (rightfully) as a way for the coach to try an push him out. He decided not to come back, because he had finished school.
    RW was pushed out of NC State. There is no doubt about that. Mike Glennon has been average at best the last 2 seasons and the coach was fired a few months ago.
