Is this truly becoming incredible? I'm trying to think of another player in Seahawks history (and I've been around since day one) that has hit a national celebrity status as quickly as Russell Wilson... Maybe the Boz? but that was different, way more of a side-show freak type of thing... RW is all over the National Media, he's a snow ball rolling down hill and it continues to build and pick up steam. And it's a respect, a reverence, a recognition of a special player in the making, a special person kind of thing. His agent's phone must be ringing off the hook this week.
The media liked Matt, and I think Matt will have a pretty good media career once he retires but it took Matt years and a Super Bowl run to get any media face time.
Where is Andrew Luck this week? Where's RG3? I know he's re-cooping from surgery but still if they wanted him they'd have a camera in his face... Kaepernick? If the 9ers had been knocked out in the first round I fully doubt he'd be getting any attention and barely a mention.
It really is incredible, a Seahawks phenomenon, and it's going to be interesting to see how it continues (to some extent) through this offseason. Hell, I'm sure they'll be all over him interviewing RW during the combine and draft weeks, analyzing his path last year and getting his thoughts on that experience...
