If there was one NFL player that deserves your rooting interest, it would be Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
Wilson's story is one of the most unique in the National Football League since he was drafted in the both the NFL and Major League Baseball. After getting drafted by Seattle in the 4th round of the NFL draft, he beat out Matt Flynn and Tavaris Jackson for the starting quarterback role.
The folks over at Levi's put together this viral advertisement and if you're not a fan of Russell Wilson after it, you might not have a heart:

All the dynamic playmaking Russell Wilson showed throwing the ball downfield during the preseason has yet to show up for the Seattle Seahawks during the regular season.
The Seahawks head into Monday night's game at home against Green Bay with the fewest yards passing of any team in the NFL through two weeks.
While it's a small sample size, the lack of numbers from the passing...
The Seattle Seahawks are facing arguably their toughest opponent of the year this weekend. Come Monday night, the Green Bay Packers will be squaring off with Seattle in CenturyLink for some Monday Night Football action.
There is no shortage of story lines in this one as both teams have lots to prove early on in the season.
Last week, Seattle looked great against Dallas...
Golden Tate has spent most of this week hearing his name being brought up in debates about whether his block on Dallas' Sean Lee was legal or not.
It apparently was not legal as the Seattle wide receiver was hit with a hefty fine by the NFL. Tate said Thursday that he intends to appeal the fine, but that within the appeal, he wasn't going to receive clarification on what...
Wide receiver Doug Baldwin is questionable for the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night against Green Bay because of a shoulder injury.
Baldwin didn't participate in practice Saturday, the second straight day the Seahawks leading receiver from 2011 did not practice. Coach Pete Carroll says Baldwin banged his shoulder in practice earlier in the week, but that Baldwin believes he...
On Sunday, Seahawks WR Golden Tate delivered a knockout blow to Cowboys LB Sean Lee on a blindside block that made all the highlight reels, and has now left Tate $21,000 poorer after being fined by the NFL.
The hit also gave us one of the more brutal photos of the football season so far:

A number of mixed opinions have surfaced since Greg Schiano ordered the Bucs to play hard until the final whistle against the Giants last Sunday. Tom Coughlin was the most upset about it and Justin Tuck didn’t seem too far behind. Jerry Jones thinks the kneel-down play should be eliminated altogether and we here at LBS don’t see what all the fuss is about. Neither does Pete...
Green Bay will not have played a game in 10 days when it faces Seattle on Monday night.Green Bay dominated hated rival Chicago Thursday night, 23-10.Both teams are 1-1 and both teams had dismal performances in Week 1 followed by spectacular ones in Week 2.The Packers' defense that was torched and looked confused in Week 1 against San Francisco created havoc against the Bears...
Every NFL season is full of surprises. Team performance can vary wildly from year to year, earning the NFL the nickname "Not For Long" League.The Packers are usually immune to this trend. They usually have the same coach and GM for a decade or more, which brings team unity and success. Even in this time of heavy turnover, they have a GM (Ted Thompson) that joined...
Packers/Seahawks Week 3
Having an extra day this week to heal up was advantageous for both teams.
The Seattle Seahawks should have wide receiver Charly Martin (Chest) and starting left tackle Russell Okung (Knee) back this week.
Last week Frank Omiyale filled in brilliantly for Okung, yet it’s always good to have your starting left tackle back in the game.
What a run! Am I the only one who sees flashes of Marshawn Lynch in this kid? But don't get too big of a head yet, buddy. You've still got to have a lot of run-ins with the law before you reach...
