$33 Million!!! REALLY!?

Ok you guys pops and I are talking about changing some things up with regard to the format.  A little shorter for those of you on the go!  So keep an eye on us and let us know how we are doing!

Ok so was listening to Brock and Salk today…..I’m a bit disappointed in the myopic vision that apparently exists out there.  The conversation of Russell Wilson’s contract is one that is starting to take place…. we here and Seattle Hawk Talk have been having this conversation for a while already.  Apparently the agreed upon number is about $33 million!  Really!?  This is how much we value Russ?  This is how much you enjoy seeing him take sacks he shouldn’t because he is hanging on to the ball too long?  Oh I know you enjoy seeing Doug Baldwin get pissed because Russ was too busy looking LONG for TOO LONG and didn’t see Doug wide open at his break?  Or the Running Back who swung out into the flat and has 10yds of grass in front of him…..This conversation drives me nuts….Russ is not that valuable to this game plan in my mind and shouldn’t be paid.  I’d offer a reasonable contract and allow him to walk.  I continue to believe in Alex McGough’s potential and this organizations ability to put a great TEAM on the field.  I’d rather see the Hawks pay their O-line and entire Defense!  In this pass happy offense minded league nothing brings me more happiness than watching a dominant Defense crush the dreams of some basketball players with helmets.  Pay Frank Clark, start developing some LB’s and a plan for post Bobby Wagner.  What are we going to do with KJ who has been as integral to our success as most of the other supporting cast.  Thankfully due to unfortunate timing his contract will be cheaper than it might have previously been.  We don’t have to bow down and buy into the narrative of “it’s a quarterback-centric league.  We can change it and value Defense over offense.  Break the trend.  Do it different.  We are the PNW for crying out loud!  Let’s be different.

  1. I agree, homie is not worth the $, but take a look at Jacksonville…that’s a team loaded with defensive talent but no QB. Russ is a franchise qb. He doesn’t deserve the 33mill, but, you also dont let a franchise qb walk. We spent many of years in the 90s with elite defense and no qb and winning only 2 games and being able to draft the mighty rick mirer
