No, it's because Russ is a triple-threat:

1.) He runs like the wind
2.) He passes like a surgeon
3.) He blocks downfield fearlessly

Fixed. ;)

On topic: It's an interesting factoid, and it really shows the amount of thought and effort he puts into the details.

Tim Tebow is crushed that he didn't come up with this idea.


He should be more crushed that he can't play like Wilson either

Fwiw, my question wasn't directed at you ... and we obviously have different standards.

No bigee.


It was incredibly douchey for the reason Calihawk stated. Your post was completely condescending and humiliating. and your explanation post was even more condescending. "Cute"? Get a grip. It was a douche post and a douche explanation of the douche post. No need.


And your calling him out for this makes you appear "douchey" if you simply believe onanygivensunday that he had a positive intent, not a negative one you assumed. Bottom line guys; drop it. Get back to the OP.

Wow, you guys need to lighten up. It was funny and light hearted. I chuckled myself and can laugh at my own miss spellings.

Glad to see that Russell isn't afraid to demonstrate his beliefs and that he does so in an under stated way so as not to offend those with sensitivities towards religion.

i typically am pretty bummed on overly religious players but russell approaches it with a lot of class, nothing too pushy or preachy. though i must say that im probably totally biased as i am pretty much completely obsessed with him at this point. might feel differently about him if he wasnt our QB. that being said.... GO HAWKS!



agree


I cringed when Kurt Warner won the superbowl and bellowed (yes he bellowed it, he didn't just shout or yell it, it was the definition of a bellow ..its not a word I use lightly) THANK YOU JESUS!.

when russell wins one I imagine he will say something about god or his faith but I don't forsee him bellowing it like christ floated down on a paper cloud ala a monty pythonesque montage and pooped the lombardi trophy into his fanny-pack.

I've always wondered how the lord chooses which team will win a game when both team's (and their fan bases) send up prayers for a victory.

Anybody know? ;)

I thought he wore number 3 because he is 3 inches too short to play QB!

Also, he has 3 dogs to boot. A doxin, a shih tzu and a great dane (which is probably bigger than him :th2thumbs: )

I find it perplexing that you spell shih tzu correctly but absolutely butcher dachshund.

Hell, you could have opted out of the spelling bee contest and simply called it a wiener dog.

A doxin... that's too much. :rofl: Thanks for the laugh.


I spelled shih tzu correctly because I goggled searched it to see what the heck it looked like lol. Than I just copy and pasted the correct way to spell it. I googled the word doxin as well and it said that that was correct so I just used it. Sorry for not being an avid dog name speller.

I googled it as well and this is what I found... Whats the difference between a doxin and a dachshund?... and the answer was... A "doxin" is owned by someone who has no knowledge of the breed or spelling. :rofl:

I'm not religious at all, but I couldn't care less what he says about his beliefs etc. Especially if he's saying it after winning the title.
