If only Russell Wilson could play defense, too
By 710Sports.com staff
Bret Bielema promises he wasn’t speaking in hyperbole when he said Russell Wilson would have shattered every school and FBS record had he been at Wisconsin for four years.
Bielema, now Arkansas’ head coach, only had Wilson for one season at Wisconsin. It took only two practices into that lone season, Bielema said, to notice Wilson’s “uncanny” way of leading others.
“I know he’s going to be an NFL Hall of Fame quarterback, but he also might be the president of the United States,” Bielema told “Brock and Salk” on Monday. “And I don’t think that’s an exaggeration. The kid has something that you cannot buy, you cannot bottle.”
The Seahawks can feel good heading into the offseason that they’ve found their leader on offense.
In the video below, Brock Huard and Mike Salk say the team needs a similar leader on the other side of the ball.
