Got to hand it to Brock Huard, he knows talent when he sees it! There weren't too many scouts in Russell's camp.....and many a scout has had to "eat their words" with Russell's play this year!

The most prophetic words ever spoken. Why the hell isn't Brock working in the front office already?! Seriously, I love his analysis but I almost feel like he'd be better served actually being a part of the front office, that's if he wants to.

Great find!

Thanks for posting this, since I'd not seen that video before.
It's just one more example of Brock Huard > Hugh Millen. hehe :mrgreen:

To me it's not surprising what he thought of Wilson at that time because I think just about everybody thought he could do everything. It was the fear of no QB that size ever doing it in the NFL before that he didn't have. The nice part of Brock's little speech there is committing to pulling the trigger on drafting him and being confident that the size won't matter.

And I loved how he used being 6'5" himself and lacking the qualities that Wilson has as an example. Good stuff.

Phase 1: Talk up Russell Wilson before the draft.

I really like Brock Huard and listen to his show almost daily. I think he was a better qb than he gives himself credit for but hey what do I know? I like his candid information that is very interesting and honest. Well thought out. Kicks the shit out of KJR IMHO.

Anyone who has listened to Brock & Salk since January knows about Russell Wilson and his potential. Those two have been in love with RW a long time. Justified.

And conversely, Hugh Millen prior to the draft said "If that guy ever does anything in the NFL, I'll come over there and eat your microphone."

Why on Earth there are people in this city that listen to Millen when they could be listening to Huard baffles me. This is merely a ridiculously obvious example of what goes on on a daily basis on local sports radio. Brock and Salk is the best show in town if you are looking for Hawk talk.

I like Millen when he's explaining and diagramming plays, because he's pretty good at it. I am not a fan of his prognostication or projected opinion of players.

Is Millen still hesitant to give any kind of love to Wilson still? I haven't turned on KJR in a month, coincidentally they went on this tear since.

If you put this commentary with the music from the LevyFilms San Fran video before it breaks, you end up making Brock Huard look like the patron saint of the Seahawks. I did it by accident and it was pretty friggin funny.

This. I can understand why people would be skeptical of Russell Wilson before this season, but Millen saying things like this and calling Wilson a "teacher's pet" for working so hard isn't good analysis: it's the mindless braying of an egotistical jackass who thinks he's God's gift to Seattle radio.

I also wonder if he's had the guts to man up and eat some crow after his earlier comments. Probably not.

I like both Brock and Hugh. I agree that B&S is the best show in town. There was one show in particular where Brock said he studied film at ESPN with the goal of finding three instances where Wilson was limited by his height, and despite that being his mission, he couldn't do it. He came back on the air said he didn't think that height would be a big factor. At some point after that, Mike Salk said he would be okay with taking Russell Wilson with the number 11 overall pick! Now THAT is some foresight.

I will say this though: hearing Millen talk about how much he likes Wilson now is that much sweeter since he was a complete doubter.

Because I'm limited to podcasts, I don't know whether Millen has done anything to follow through on his promise to eat a microphone if Wilson did well. I'm expecting some charity event where he will eat the edible parts of a microphone prepared by a chef, or something like that. Has something like that happen?
