  • SBello says:

    Russell Wilson only has one Super Bowl win, not two. The Seahawks lost in their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance due to a bad play call by not giving the ball to Beast Mode who was dominating the run again the Patroits but instead throwing the ball inside the 5 yard line and having it intercepted. Also, Wilson is not one of the taller quarterbacks in teh league.
