Russell Wilson is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, and has been since he came into the league as a third-round pick of the Seahawks in 2012. In his first eight seasons in the NFL, he’s completed 65% of his passes, thrown for nearly 30,000 yards, and has 227 touchdowns to only 68 interceptions. Pretty impressive by the numbers; the guy seems to have “it.”
But what the hell is “it?” Russy’s got me thrown on a definition here. He’s the best example of a guy having, and simultaneously not having “it.”
He’s married to Ciara, a total smoke show (“Goodies” still bangs by the way), but will show up to the Pro Bowl like a midwestern dad who just took his first flight of his life from Omaha to Orlando:
He’s the CatDog of NFL quarterbacks; two completely oxymoronic beings in one mind-boggling package.
It wouldn’t be fair for me to not post some additional proof of my research:
Does he get nerdier or less nerdier with the amount of hair on his head at a given time? I can’t decide, and it’s something that’s been weighing on my mind for years. I can’t tell if that picture on the right is a shot from a community college marketing brochure or the Steve Buscemi meme come to life:
Either way, the dude’s a baller and I am jealous of his entire life. The fact that he can rock dad jeans with a Hawaiian shirt one minute, then turn around and post a mega flex video (that was also cringe worthy since, it’s still Russell Wilson) on Instagram in bed with Ciara after signing a $140M contract the next minute should have been enough for me to never even consider writing this blog.
