Ron Jawarski and a lot of the ESPN talking heads have never liked Russell Wilson. They never saw him as a high draft pick. When he got drafted, they expected him to be a backup. But he won the job. When Russell was struggling early last year, they said "I told you so". Once Russell started winning, they attributed his wins to the defense.
What a lot of these fools seem to forget is that, Russell carried this team last year with his arm and legs, where the Defense failed. At Miami, Chicago, Detroit and even at Atlanta. Russell carried the team, but the defense failed to close the deal in certain situations. They will never mention that.
Russell has "struggled" the last few weeks. But every QB goes through stretches.
They will see the real Russell on Sunday. With so much negativity in the press, I hope our guys are taking it very personal. I know Lynch is. I know Sherman and Russell are. I know ALL our guys are.
Manning might get his yards on Sunday. Manning might march this team down the field on Sunday, but one thing is sure: Our defense is going to hit their players hard. The second half will tell another story.
I expect us to win by 2-3 TDs.
