Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Tuesday, September 3 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Making Plays AND Calling Plays
“Look who’s calling plays!” Exclaimed Fox announcer Curt Menefee. It was none other than our very own QB1.
You may have noticed Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson walking up and down the sideline last Thursday during the team’s preseason finale against the Oakland Raiders. Wilson was wearing a headset with play sheet in hands, as he called some plays to ultimately lead to the Seahawks’ 17-15 win over the Raiders.
Wilson took over for the full second quarter, in which he oversaw two possessions. The first was a 52-yard touchdown drive with Geno Smith in at quarterback. In an interview with Jen Mueller, Wilson explained, “I got that first drive where Jazz (Ferguson) went on the post and Geno threw it to him and then came back with the touchdown. That was really cool. And then I got the second drive, so it was fun.”
The National Football League tweeted out a video on Saturday morning highlighting some of his offensive coordinating. The video featured an on-field interview with Wilson telling Menefee and Dave Wyman about his play-calling debut.
“Play calling in your future?” Asked Menefee on the broadcast.
“Hey, you know, who knows? Maybe. Of course, of course,” responded the Super Bowl XLVIII champ.
