Found December 25, 2012 on Comedic Prose:
I sense that’s there’s a lot of people baffled about the Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson. I say that their baffled, because they don’t seemed to be saying anything at all about the Seahawks season. It seems that everyone tries to explain away every big win by the Seahawks this season. The Green Bay Packers win was dismissed, because of a blown call by the replacement referres1. Then they beat the New England Patriots, and that was dismissed because of their home field advantage2. Then they beat the Chicago Bears, in Chicago, and that game is dismissed because, “Chicago is getting old, and you know Brian Urlacher isn’t 100%. Plus Chicago isn’t really that good anyway.” I have yet to hear what the excuse will be for the beat down they put on the prematurely crowned, San Francisco 49ers. Perhaps they’ll just concede the fact that the Seattle Seahawks are a super bowl contender (excuse me for a minute; I have to take a drug test. That last statement has me questioning my sobriety). Because at some point you have to admit the Seahawks have a lot of Russell. Russell Wilson looks like he may be a franchise quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. Hell, he may be a top 10 quarterback in the NFL right now. However, those things are debatable. What isn’t debatable is that Russell Wilson has been going H.A.M. for the last 2 months – I’m not going to bore you with the stats, because I don’t have that kind of time (I still have yet to set my Christmas day fantasy basketball roster) – all you need to know is that he’s the highest rated quarterback in the NFL. A quarterback like Russell Wilson was the only thing the Seahawks were missing, and now that they have him. The Seahawks aren’t afraid to show you their Russell3, and they did a lot of flexing on Sunday night (It also helped that after the first series, Colin Kaepernick had the fear of God in his eyes. I wouldn’t have been surprised if he would have went Pacquiao sixth round, because he just wanted to go home). After watching Wilson drop a back shoulder dime to Doug Baldwin – of all people – for his second receiving touchdown. I had a revelation. For the first time since Shaun Alexander, the Seahawks could dictate the tempo of a game. They no longer have to try to keep up with the pace of a high scoring team, or grind out a game against a ground and pound team. Now they can go straight for the throat. Why…because they got that Russell4. #ShowYourRussell   The Green Bay Packers did get jobbed out of that game, but Seattle did move the ball throughout the game. “U Mad Bro?” Nothing would make me happier than to start the hash tag #ShowYourRussell “I got that Russell” sounds like advertisement for some kind of drug   Kortney Shane Williams Editor-in-Chief of Comedic Prose Follow Kortney Williams on Twitter @kortneyshane
