As we near the start of Halloween, Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson was recently interviewed by the folks over at ESPN the Magazine about his favorite costume.
Russell went with the "King of Pop":
What was your best Halloween costume?
I was Michael Jackson a few years ago, in his outfit from "Thriller."
Normally, that would be a pedestrian answer since Thriller Michael Jackson is a popular costume for All Hallow's Eve.
However, it appears that Mr. Wilson is a huge Michael Jackson fan since earlier in the interview, he provided this response to a question:
If you could go to dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be?
Michael Jackson. I’d go to Neverland
Clearly, someone needs to get Russell Wilson to Neverland, ASAP....
BEST OF MAXIM
The 2012 NFL Season is reaching the midway point of the season and the NFL Playoffs are beginning to take shape. This is the time when we begin looking at the bigger picture of things in terms of wins and losses. Every week wins and losses are important but many seem to think wins and losses aren’t as important in the beginning of the season since teams can recover.Yet, looking...
It only took a season and a half, but it would appear that Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh have carried their feud from their college days over to the professional level.
In my weekly column, we will take a long look at two rookies. I will compare their performance to date against my original expectations of them. Let’s continue this series off by looking back at Seattle Seahawks running back Robert Turbin and Indianapolis Colts running back Vick Ballard after their week seven games:
Robert Turbin, RB SEAHere is what I saw in college...
Always a Bright Spot
On days when the Seattle Seahawks‘ defense can’t even hold on (granted they are on the field for the majority of the game) and the offense is… well, being the Seahawks offense, the Special Teams unit helps out both units.
Be it by giving the opposing offense awful starting field position, or Leon WashingtonÂ electrifying the game with a stunning return...
Pull The Trigger!
Headline: The solution is a QB change; the compromise is the Chiefs WR making Seattle’s offense better.
The Seattle Seahawks need to do something for their defense, a defense that is the best in the NFL and could win a Super Bowl if given the opportunity.
Since no one in management or on the coaching staff is willing to change their minds (a stubborn bunch),...
After last Thursday’s win over the Seahawks, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh made it clear that he was unhappy with how his receivers were being covered. He felt like the Seattle cornerbacks were getting away with holding.Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll called Harbaugh out on Brock & Salk on ESPN 710 (via ProFootballTalk.com) because he told Giants offensive coordinator Kevin...
The Pete Carroll-Jim Harbaugh rivalry has thankfully continued into the NFL.
Carroll had criticism over Harbaugh's recent complaints that the Seahawks' defensive backs were getting away with too-physical play down the field, implying that it contradicted Harbaugh's accusation that Giants' offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride was trying to influence...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will try to beat the Detroit Lions Sunday at Ford Field.
In the meantime, hell be cheering for the Tigers in the World Series.
Wilson described himself as family friends with Tigers ace Justin Verlander while growing up in Richmond, Va.
Wilson, 23, was an infielder and played two seasons in the minor leagues with...
Last Thursday’s road game against the 49ers was supremely frustrating to watch. The Seahawks looked awful, and that’s led to a lot of fans voicing opinions of the “fire coach X and/or bench player Y” variety. That’s understandable, but I think it’s premature to be calling for changes that drastic. Right now, the Seahawks are 3-0 at home and 1-3 on the road, with...
