    Russ just needs to shut his mouth worry about only his contract and play the game. You are not the Head Coach or the GM you are the Player. You want pats on your back for doing what you are paid to do. Are you in high school looking for mommy’s approval cmon grow up and stop whining about just wanting to be heard and included in decisions and Pete’s comforting words.

    Here is the thing ? Grass always looks better on the other side . Brady jumped too the Bucks cause he was smart the team was set up but quarterback but you look around there isn't a team set up like that this year could change next year or year after that Pete Carroll knows that so I say Russ is staying for now

    This dude is a idiot. He was a Free Agent and wanted to know before he signed if Russell really wanted to leave. Wouldn't any of you want to know who the QB is going to be before you sign a contract as a FA? I bet Adams will ask Russell the same question before he signs a new contract so he won't be playing for the Seattle Jets and go back to losing 10 game's a season. I bet Lockett asked him too. But this idiot said he needs to hear Russell say exactly what he told Dunlap to belive he'll stay and he said he still doesn't belive it?

    @Brian Smith bro Bobby Wagner is the best Line Backer in the League he is worth more then a 5th round pick bro. Check the stats

  46. Brian Smith

    A first, second, and 5th for Wags? I understand a fifth. If CLE gives up a first and second too, they truly haven't learned a thing.

  47. Tall Allen

    Tall AllenПре 6 дана

    I dont want Wagner to go,but it makes more sense to trade Wagner while he still has value and we already have his replacement with Brooks than it does Wison. But I think we have a good team that can win without trades. Of KJ doesn't come back tuen we only need a LB and maybe a CB for depth on defense and on offense a Center and a 3rd WR maybe. Some more line depth too maybe? But we can't keep trading all of out top picks away either. 6 out of 10 first rounders( including the Adams trade)since Russell has been here. Those could have been lineman on cheap contracts but he always goes defense.

    Will the line protect Wilson if he gets Carrell fired? Is it possible to get rid of all your lineman & just replace them or is that too hard to do?

  61. Tall Allen

    Tall AllenПре 6 дана

    Ask yourself if you think Russell was talking about the whole line before you get brainwashed and parrot what you heard. You t h ink he was talking about LT-BROWN? Or RG Lewis? Or Shell? Could have been talking about Iupati and Pocic, but Iupati retired and Pocic Re-signed so he might need to talk to him. Thats it. We got a LG now and thst might make Pocic play better. Also Pocic has been playing out of position because of Pete's ego of thinking he can make any player he drafted into a top caliber.....making DL and basketball players OLinemen. Undrafted FA starters too. In the 8 years since Wilson's been drafted, we only got Lewis as a good lineman. Thats it. Nobody has left because thry outplayed their contract and we couldn't afford them. Until Carson Re-signed ,we only had Russell and Lockett to earn 2nd big contracts on offense that we would have missed if they left. So drsft bust don't ever get brought t up. Our whole 2013 draft were bust.

  79. josh kennedy

    josh kennedyПре 6 дана

    @Skens Saintginat 😄😄😄 ok you still didn't answer my question of why he doesn't have what wants on that team. If he has that much pull. The Patriots picked Bill over Brady. You're argument has no valid point. You are thinking of the NBA. The NFL is a coach league. Also he wouldn't have had any of that success without Carroll

  80. Skens Saintginat

    Skens SaintginatПре 6 дана

    @josh kennedy lol yes I really think he got that much pull. It boils down to.. what's easier? Finding a coach that can succeed with Wilson or finding a QB like Wilson that will do the things he's done for that franchise? I think we both know the answer to that

  81. josh kennedy

    josh kennedyПре 6 дана

    @Skens Saintginat 😆😆 ok apparently you don't understand the dynamic of a football team. But the head coach is the boss. And you really think Willson has that much pull there ? How come he isn't happy then

    @Joe Campione the Seahawks need players too. Keep in mind what the bears offered and how the Seahawks decline that gigantic package. The Seahawks need to have a quarterback, if the Jets had kept Sam darnold and put him in the package, then the Seahawks might have said yes. But either way, Russ had a no trade clause so he’d be able to veto it
