Colin Cowherd: “They just had a top 100 list on the NFL Network voted on by players. We can argue who the best player is, but without question, the most disrespected player in the National Football League is Russell Wilson. In that top 100 players list he was ranked 61st. You think there are 60 better players than Russell Wilson?? He’s never received an MVP vote… Kordell Stewart and Chad Pennington have had several, and he’s never gotten ONE? This is what Russell Wilson deals with all the time. Remember, he was a star at NC State, his coach bailed on him for Mike Glennon, he went to Wisconsin and had the single greatest quarterback year in the history of Badger football. What is Pete Carroll’s career in the NFL without Russell Wilson? Fired with the Patriots, fired with the Jets, and 14-18 with Matt Flynn at quarterback. Then they catch a break, get Russell Wilson in the third round, and they go from 7-9 to 11-5. Many of those defensive stars, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, had already been drafted. If you watch the Seahawks of the last couple years their drafts have been atrocious, their defense has been outdated, and Russell Wilson was the life preserver to the franchise… Vegas over/unders see Seattle as a 5-win team without Russell, Denver now, mediocre for years, is now seen as a 10-11-win team with Russell.” (Full Video Above)
