      Why do people keep calling Rashaad Penny “Rashard?” It’s weird...like automatically calling a black man named Mark “Marcus.”

            Run the ball Seahawks. No one wants to tackle those running backs. Then... Wilson. Two defensive touchdowns against Rams.

                          I would take a positive dork in the locker room, who never even has the thought of losing over someone who gets angry at every little thing and brings the team down

                            Russell Wilson isn't a dork, he's a leader. Look at his wife, kids and how he plays football. Just because he uses proper gramer dosent meen he's not badass.

                                                This outlines the problem with our culture when it comes to masculinity in football. He could wear kitten ears and it wouldn't make him less of an athlete.

                                                    When Wilson is mic’d up, he sounds so phony and dorky when he tries to be excited. But I believe that’s just because he is naturally so stoic, and they’re kind of forcing him to show more excitement as a leader when his teammates do something positive. Wilson has always been a stone face competitor. I rather have that anyway.

                                                      Thank you both sir! You all are some of the few I hear in the media giving Russell Wilson the credit he's do. He is in my opinion one of the smartest QB's in the league. To me is should be the MVP. He has never one and that's just point blank wrong! I do not deny Lamar Jackson's greatness. However Russ haven't been rewarded for his greatness! He's been in NFL eight years and has never missed a game. And his has been the CLUTCH MAN for eight years! That alone speaks MVP to me. Not to mention he went to Superbowl his second year in the league. The Legion of Boom did not get their on their own! And Russell is the most CLASSY football player in the League. He's has never threw anyone under the bus and speaks highly of everyone! GO RUSS & HAWKS!!!!!

                                                        Wait til a big moment (like the Super Bowl) and you can count on Russell Wilson to lock into a single receiver in a critical moment and throw an interception; it's his history until he changes it.

                                                          It's disgusting how much credit he doesn't get for what he does, both on and off the field. I'd rather have a guy encouraging his teammates throughout the entire guy than some lousey trashtalker. But all in all, Russell Wilson doesn't care that nobody talks about him and he wouldn't care if everyone was talking about him. He's a winner and he's gonna winner no matter what's going on

I have never thought of an athlete as being "cool" or "nerdy". I like them on the field just like I like actors in a movie. I don't really care about them past that though.

People can say what they want but you can make some crazy things happen with the power of belief alone.

However I played football in Florida during the 1950's, where then as now football is a civic religion, and I have been a fervent fan ever since. So I know a thing or two about the game because I've seen a thing or two. And if I were starting a football team and had my pick of any player in the NFL, I WOULD CHOOSE RUSSELL FASTER THAT THE LONE RANGER COULD DRAW HIS SILVER GUNS!!!!!!!

You dont want your QB to be on the exact same page as the coach?? Maybe you prefer Cam Newton type antics or how about Phillip Rivers for that matter. RW is steady and consistent, never rattled. Why call the guy a dork? He rocks man and I loved his being Micd up

                                                                                          And then they was calling Cam Newton a thug. I notice how they call all the black QB names but not the white ones.

                                                                                      • Leroy Brown

                                                                                            Russell knows how the media and people are that's why he doesn't give you anything his father taught him at an early age how to conduct himself in interviews and the media and it has paid off. I remember the media and folks calling Cam a thug. It's funny how the black QBs get all these labels.
