Moneyball and Russell Wilson

 

If there was ONE podcast that people listened to I would want it to be this one.  It exemplifies all things that I would want our listeners to hear.  Pertinent issues that are not being talked about in the national media yet.  “Xtra points” regarding current play on the team.  A different point of view that provides a level of insight into what is probably going on behind closed doors.

Listen, you may or may not get your panties in a twist after hearing what we have to say.  But right, wrong, or indifferent to the issue, AN ISSUE exists.  We as 12’s aren’t talking about it much yet because it isn’t being talked about in the national conversation yet….but rest assured it will be….soon.  This is why Dad and I started this whole thing to begin with.  We like to chat-chickens for sure but also the national conversation typically revolves around “dem Boys” and “that team in Boston”.  We are not them.  We aren’t the darlings of the league any more and we aren’t coming off a SB victory.  Hell even when we were we didn’t get the press that we deserved.  Dad and I found ourselves talking about something only to hear about it in the national conversation months later.  This is another one of those issues.  Another example would be the Linebacker conversations we’ve had…..read an article on BR the other day that called our Linebacker room the strongest positional group…..Ummmm sure it is, as long as no one gets hurt.  I see the “strongest positional group” as the one that has the highest level of competition and the back-ups are pushing for playing time.  We are strong at CB, WR, RB, OL, DL, and even though it’s a stretch our Safeties…WITHOUT Earl.  But we can talk about that later….

SO listen to this podcast…it’s a little like pulling Santa Clause’s pants down or spitting into his eye but it’s time we love our team for what it is, and don’t keep calling Russell the greatest thing since sliced bread.  Although he’s done some amazing things statistically and even made some pretty amazing plays, I don’t know if there is another QB in the league that has continually put his team in such difficult spots to begin with.

  1. Enjoyed your latest podcast…agree with u to an extent on wilson. I really have high Hope’s for mcgough, but, I think it will be 3 years before he will be relevant enough. Wilson can very well price himself out of seattle, but if the salary cap keeps going up, his percentage that he takes from overall salary cap stays the same…so, it’s a wash. Teams just dont let a franchise qb “walk”
