Talking Points: Considering Russell Wilson



What’s the buzz from the world of sports? Here are some items that will have people talking:


Seems like Seahawks fans are going to have another discussion of Russell Wilson’s quarterback worthiness this week.

The Seahawks did win Sunday, so that may take some pressure off Pete Carroll about his starting QB.

To add some fuel to the fire, Frank Schwab of Yahoo Sports blog Shutdown Corner, wrote on Sunday that Wilson could be a really good QB … someday.

“… (Wilson) still needs to progress from game manager to something a little more dynamic,” wrote Schwab.

It’s been pointed out several times this season that if it weren’t for the play of Seahawks defense they wouldn’t have a chance.

Keep in mind, Wilson is a rookie learning as he goes. Matt Flynn would be the next option. So either way, be careful what wish for.


After years of being insignificant, Notre Dame has put a winner on the football field this season.

So then the Irish go ahead and do this to their helmets:

We hope the Pope forgives whoever designed that thing.

Because we’re quite sure no one else will on this planet.


Members of the Kansas City Chiefs angrily spoke out Sunday against thousands of fans who cheered when quarterback Matt Cassel left a 9-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens with a head injury.

Cassel, who committed four turnovers against Baltimore, was hammered by the Ravens’ Haloti Ngata and remained on his back for several minutes while fans began to cheer. He eventually got to his feet with some help and walked off the field under his own power.

“It’s 100-percent sickening,” Chiefs tackle Eric Winston said. “He got knocked out in a game and we’ve got 70,000 people cheering that he got knocked out. We are not gladiators and this is not the Roman Colosseum. This is a game.”
