An Observation

  • Wilson didn't win ROTY, but has anyone noticed that he is the one on all the shows, interviews, analysis view points etc.

    Where is RGIII? Where is Luck? Where is Tannahill?, Where is Weedon?

    Is it because he is smoother on camera, looks better on camera, more articulate, or smarter and has better football IQ or all the above ?

    Just a thought really but when the whole media circuit seems to want your guy that pretty much sends a statement to what value you have. Endorsements, merchandise and all else is sure to follow. The Seahawks with Sherman and Wilson should spike really high in jersey requests next year versus the rest of the league in improved sales.

  • Hmm.. that's a good thought.

    Honestly, I love the media attention he's finally getting. Seems like Wilson is everywhere nowadays.

  • Well.....isn't RGIII recovering from major knee surgery, and Luck seems kinda shy and one that stays out of the spotlights.

    They are NFL QB's, Super Bowl week, RGIII was in some other interviews concerning ROTY, Luck didn't have issues with being in front of the camera before the draft.

    All of the above.

    Wilson is going to be huge. I was at the shopping mall the other day, and saw #3 jerseys in several stores. Not a big deal for you guys in WA. But I live in Greensboro NC. I have not seen Seahawks gear anywhere in Greensboro for the past 10 years. Now it is available everywhere.

    Nice that you have #3 jerseys there. In the Seattle area, at least the places I've seen, there isn't a #3 or #25 to be found ANYWHERE!

  • I don't recall where I saw it, but I swear that I read something about RG3 saying that he isn't going to attend the Superbowl until he's actually in it.

    Pretty cool reason, but after winning ROTY I would have assumed that he would be more present. Oh well, more facetime so Wilson can continue to make the nation love him more and more.

    I believe Russell Wilson got a degree in communications. Plus he plans on being on NFL shows after he retires. Which also means he will have multiple Super Bowl titles to his name. Everyone will ask for his opinion on things.

  • Thats not why he's on all these shows, he performed better then any QB at the end of the season, he lit up the pro bowl.

    If he was such a communications major you would have thought his season long interviews would be more then cliche's. He's invited because the NFL see's the future of the league in him, they see a marketable commodity. You don't get asked to do all those interviews typically if your not. Flacco just won a Superbowl but doesn't have that IT factor that translates everywhere. Call it charisma if you will. But leadership and charisma is Joe Namath type star power.

  • As long as his prowess wins us a super bowl, I'll be satisfied and praise him forever. The guy is impossible not to like, very different from Kaepernick.

  • The best part is that the country recognizes a player who isn't just incredible on the field but off as well. This kid's character is off the charts. It's refreshing to see athletes gain popularity not just because of their performance but for the human's they are. I realize not every 12-year-old kid with his jersey is going to give a rip about his character, but it counts. Trust me, it counts.

  • Some guys have no interest in football the day the season ends. They hit the buffet circuit and golf course and avoid football until the day they have to show up. Russell Wilson's pre-season started a couple of weeks ago. This is part of his genius. He's working the room, scouting things out, talking to everybody, working as an ambassador of the team and keeping his mindset where it should be... on football. It's his job. He's already got a media job of some sort lined up for the day he leaves the sport and he's only played in 18 games. Pretty brilliant kid.

    I guess he doesn't want to attend the superbowl 'til after he retires cause Russell Wilson will be the only QB representing the NFC until about 2035.

    Todd, it genuinely makes me happy for YOU specifically that we now have our franchise QB and a guy that is on par with Alvin Davis/Griffey Jr./Edgar, Gary Payton/Kemp/Sikma/Lenny Wilkens, Largent/Big Walt in being "the guy" that everybody in the nation knows is "Seattle" as Mr. Mariner or Mr. Sonic or Mr. Seahawk, but he's a beloved and intelligent face of the franchise and on track to be one of the best at that. I know you built this site with the dream of one day having a team that everybody would see your love for in the work you did to build the amazing graphics and forums and so on.

    Now that the team is HERE and the time is NOW, and there is a face behind the franchise that is the new "Mr. Seahawk", I just know you are full of pride and glowing blue and green (in a good way!). So, kudos to you, and your happiness and enthusiasm for your many many years of hard work and putting the Hawks out there to the public is being paid back. I know the wait has been a long time, but I have a feeling that 52 weeks or so from now it's all going to be even more worth it. Good work brother. I'm proud of you and what you've done and others have carried on. You, Mark and the rest have earned it and then some.

    What a wonderful post, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    I may have been the catalyst, but what this website has become is purely on the hundreds if not thousands over the past 15 years who have made this place a stopping point. Thank you for acknowledging my efforts but it's truly the community that makes this place so special.

    Except for Absolute...He's just weird.
