Russell Wilson

Work never ends for ‘football junkie’ Russell Wilson

The shadow. That hovers over that ….. last few years he was a was still a good football player. But he wasn’t Ray Lewis ….. Then act when he actually does on the football for. A new team we trying to get another Video Fri, 26 Jul 2013 about ten pounds he added some muscle. And looks like he’s gonna battle for one of those starting spots I talked to the quarterback just is.

Fan interest in training camps seems to be strong throughout the NFC West. The St. Louis Rams have reported “record” crowds at their facility, where the viewing area is also relatively small. This picture provided by the team shows fans stacked far deeper than I can recall during recent camps. That is for good reason. The Rams are increasingly competitive, they have a high-profile head coach and their offense now features young skill players with promise, notably receiver Tavon Austin .

But it doesn’t sound that way when it comes out of his mouth, or when he backs it up by tracking down a phone number even general manager John Schneider didn’t have when Wilson called about Fells. “He’s a hard guy not to follow,” Schneider said. “(Fells is) a guy that’s a former basketball player that we’re doing an experiment with, and he’s trying to figure out how to get ahold of the guy so he can bring him down to the beach to work out. “He’s just very rare in that regard. He’s a football junkie.” The expectations are higher this season for the Seahawks and their quarterback, though Wilson doesn’t hesitate when asked if he believed his rookie year would go the way it did. “I did. I always believe in myself,” Wilson said. “The thing I believed in is just getting better every week.

He’s right there with Mark [Sanchez].” Although Edwards has only been a Jet for three days, that’s been enough time for him to formulate an opinion on the team’s quarterback competition. “It’s going to be a battle,” Edwards said. “It’s one where Mark can’t make mistakes like he has in the past, things have to be legit with Mark for him to be the starter on opening day. He has a legit guy knocking at the back door.” That legit guy is Smith and if Smith has the type of preseason that Wilson had in 2012, Sanchez can probably expect to spend the 2013 season on the bench. “He’s not here happy to be in the NFL, he’s not happy to be backing up Mark Sanchez . He’s here to start,” Edwards said of Smith. “He has that attitude.

Seattle Seahawks: Top 5 Fantasy Players to Target

The way we practice is so fast, it really does feel like a game. So when you get to game time it really does slow things down. Some tidbits * The six players on the PUP list remain the same in Zach Miller (foot), Greg Scruggs (knee), Tharold Simon (foot), Robert Turbin (foot), Chris Clemons (knee) and Percy Harvin (hip). Michael Robinson (ankle) returned to practice today. Heath Farwell (back), Cliff Avril (foot), Michael Bowie (unknown) and Jessie Williams (knee) did not practice today. * John Moffitt worked at right guard for the majority of the reps with the first unit today, while J.R. Sweezy worked at right guard with the second unit. * Undrafted rookie free agent Alvin Bailey got some work at left tackle with the second unit today, with Mike Person flipping over to play some right tackle. Offensive line coach Tom Cable mentioned Bailey and Bowie as young lineman who have stood out the first few days, and also said converted defensive lineman Jarred Smith is making some progress. * Rookie third round draft choice Jordan Hill worked with the starters at defensive tackle next to Brandon Mebane in Seattles base defense.

NFC West camps looking like popular draw

However, the second year man from Utah State is the backup running back on the team that led the NFL in rushing attempts last season. Marshawn Lynch is physical runner who puts is body at risk every carry. If he were to get injured, Turbin would be the man to take his place. Turbin could be a prime sleeper candidate for all formats, and he is a must-target in the late rounds of keeper leagues. Expect his workload to increase no matter what this season, and if Lynch were to go down, Turbin could be one of the breakout stars of fantasy. 3. Russell Wilson Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports Wilson had an excellent rookie season, throwing for 3,118 yards and 26 touchdowns, while rushing for 489 and another four scores.

Russell Wilson: “We’re Not Running The Read-Option That Much”

The QB has to lift the other 10 guys in the huddle up and make them believe Wilson clearly gets it. Hes just so early to root for. I embedded the online portion of the interview below. If it doesnt work on your browser, justclick the link above and you can view it there. The editing makes me think theres more to the interview that will come out at another time. I sure hope so. You can also tell that King is a fan of Wilson which is pretty cool.

That growth is really, really good. Were basically putting in the same plays that weve had in the playoffs. That type of offense right now where were really intricate and really focused on the details, and when you focus on the details and continue to harp on those details, the more youll grow and learn, and the better youll be when you have those big opportunities in games. How might enemy defenses re-structure their schemes to stop Wilson in a more expansive passing game? Odds are, he won’t throw 25 percent of his passes from outside the pocket as he did last season, and teams will look to throw a bunch of oak trees at him up the middle. That strategy may not work — despite Wilson’s lack of height, he didn’t finish in the top 10 on passes batted down last season (Weeden led the league with 24), proving that if you know how to move in the pocket and find lanes in short areas, height ain’t nothing but a number. Wilson may also see more ” scrape-exchange ” techniques thrown his way to counter Seattle’s highly effective versions of the read-option and Pistol offenses.

Second-year slumpbusters: Russell Wilson

Phish’s latest show took them within a few hours drive of Seattle and though I didn’t correctly predict Wilson as the opener, Phish certainly obliged by playing the song … with Trey wearing a customized Phish + Seahawks combo t-shirt: Trey Anastasio wore a customized Nike/Seahwks/Phish shirt Friday. (LivePhish.com) In case you can’t tell, the shirt says “Duh-Duh, Duh-Duh,” a reference to the heavy E-notes played at the intro of the song “Wilson.” During the show, per JamBase.com , Trey emphasized again how much he’d love for fans to chant “Wil-son” at Russell during games and said they invited members of the Seahawks to the show Friday, but they couldn’t come because of training camp. The shirt, which you can kind of tell from this screenshot, had “Wilson” and a “3” on the back. It’s the uber-combo to end all combos. Oh and the show was, um, OK, if you like Phish — they whipped out a rare cover with Skynard’s “Ballad of Curtis Loew,” busted out a “Moon Jam” in the middle of “Character Zero” (above) and generally crushed things. So the moral of the story?
