rufus-t-firefly: Subby's right, especially considering these refs won't be calling any of their games.

Read this before you flaunt your ignorance again. And notice the picture halfway down, the shot from the back of the endzone, an angle nobody in the nation but those receiving Seattle's network feed saw: two feet on the ground, possession of the ball while Jennings is still in the air. Touchdown.

Russell Wilson reminds me of the guy you work with who is just so damn nice and mature about everything, you almost want to set him up for failure or an awkward moment just so you and your friends can be like "HA! I knew it! You're NOT perfect!"

It wouldn't surprise if him and his wife invite teammates over during the season for karaoke, board games, and other really silly, safe activities and the locker room is like "uh, um, yeah, maybe...I'll...uh...get back to you...really..."

Why Would I Read the Article: LMAO. So Russell Wilson is now Bo Jackson, JFK and Kurt Cobain in one? And you completely missed the point, too. I'm not saying Wilson wouldn't be remembered, period, if he were to die young, I'm saying he wouldn't be remembered for having a "legendary" work ethic. And you still haven't explained what makes it so "legendary." But if you didn't understand that in the first go round, you probably won't understand it now, and it probably can't be explained to you. So we'll move on.


Don't take it from me, take it from the veteran players, coaches and scouts who have all been around the block and swear, to a man, that his preparation is unlike that of anyone else they've ever played with.  Look, I'm real sorry you root for a team whose QB is an unlikeable bro-douche with chin pubes and Jesus tats who will never live up to Wilson's magnetism; he's pretty good too, though, and maybe he can use that dickweed thing to his advantage by making the rest of the league dislike him so much they lose focus.

Look. That was a touchdown in the same way that Tom Brady was tucking the ball back in 2001.

Seattle got a gift. The refs got it wrong. They do that from time to time (more frequently when they are replacement refs). But pretending that there is any sort of serious argument for that to be an actual TD is silly.

It was simply bad officiating.

It wasn't even the worst call of the season. Maybe not even top 5.

#1 - Houston vs Detroit, Thanksgiving Day.

#2 - Giants vs Pitt, "Forward Fumble"

#3 - 49ers vs Vikings, 5 Timeouts for 49ers


#4 - Titans vs Lions, 27 yard penalty for the game winning FG on a personal foul

Why Would I Read the Article: Super Chronic: The guy is already a legend for his work ethic,

Lolz. This line must be repeated on air sirens throughout Seattle 24/7, because no matter where you go (fark, other message boards, anywhere), Seadderall fans are repeating this line ad nauseum. He's already a "legend," huh? So, if he were to die or retire suddenly, we'd still be talking about his "legendary" work ethic 30 years from now? Has it been immoratilized in a song by Bob Dylan? Will Obama talk about it in his state of the union address?

Legend. That word. I don't think it means what Seadderall fans think it means.


Also, everything is relative.

As a child who suffered through 2-14 seasons in the 90's, Rick Mirer, Kelly Stouffer, Dan McGwire, et al, Russell Wilson is already legend.

When Jim Zorn and Dave Kreig are the legendary all time Seattle QBs from my childhood, yes, DangeRuss is already legend.

The same questions could be asked of any team, but I still feel somewhat confident.  Here's why:

1) most of the team has returned, except for some of the one-year contract role players like Branch
2) the rest of the NFC West seemed to lose players (Rams, 49ers) and didn't really add anybody too surprising
3) everyone is worked up over Harvin's injury, but Seattle did fine without him previously
4) Wilson is too focused and aware to allow a slump; even Cam Newton acknowledged much of his slump was caused by the adulation going to his head.  The team believes in him, and he has brought a passion to the team that's been missing for ... almost ten years now.  Wilson, this year, is just learning some of the basics in the playbook.

If there's something to worry about, it's the TE.  Miller can't handle the load on his own, and losing McCoy is awful.  Willson is a capable backup, but he's a rookie, and seems unpolished.

BretMavrik: They should be able to handle the Panthers with no problem


It is a very large mistake to assume that's a free win on the road.

They should be able to handle the Panthers with no problem. It's the next week, when they have the triple whammy of their home opener against the 49ers on Sunday Night Football.

It must be frustrating for them, to finally be at a place where they could really do well and be in the playoffs for quite some time and... oh, crap, NOW the 49ers get their act together?
