I picked up the newspapers this morning, and was totally disappointed at the treatment the media meted to young great quarterback Russell Wilson, who was not only passed over as the Most Valuable Player, but the papers didn’t even think he merited his photograph displayed in the pages of their newspaper.
The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Star Ledger, didn’t think this young man who guided his team to the blow out of one of the greatest quarterbacks in history didn’t deserve recognition.
Okay, the score was 43-8 – what part didn’t we see him lead his team? His team scored 2 points off of the Broncos mistake; then he led the team to kick a 31 yard field goal; he led his team to another field goal; then he threw a touchdown; he then threw another touchdown; then he led his team to the one-yard line, where the running back bulldozed his way into the end zone. That is 27 points he was personally responsible for. The defense was only responsible for 14 points. Russell Wilson should have been awarded the MVP.
As I had said before the game, he accuracy pin point passing would lead him to victory, and it did despite the vaunted defense. Had he not guided his team well, all the talk about the defense would have been for not. We proclaim Russell Wilson, the MVP.
