Just a little side commentary here. As of 3:00 pm Central time, here on April 14th, the Russell Wilson Rumors are flying. The strongest being that he wants to leave Seattle to go play for the New York Giants. Tomorrow is Wilson's deadline of getting a deal done with Seattle. Its that deadline that has me stressed.
Believe it or not, although I've been arguing the position that trading RW would be best for the Seahawks Super Bowl chances, I don't want him to go. Russell Wilson is an amazing NFL Quarterback. I love watching him play. I still believe that trading him away will ultimately raise our chances of winning another Super Bowl. However, I do believe keeping him doesn't erase the possibility of the big game completely.
So right now, what I'm battling in my head is this:
1)Trading away a player I love for a few percentage points better of a chance of winning another Super Bowl.
2)Sticking with a player I love although I believe there would be less of an opportunity of winning another Super Bowl.
Another way to put it is...
If it comes down to which would feel the best: Winning another SB with RW or without him, the fan in me resoundingly says "with". The flip side is winning a SB without RW is greater than not going to one with RW.
My head is spinning. I don't know if I really want to trade him anymore.
Screw the chances.... Let's keep Russ.
