(CBS Sports Eye On Football) — Ever since he marched the Seattle Seahawks to a Super Bowl victory, Russell Wilson’s been blowing up. His performance let him appear on The Late Show with David Letterman and hang with Jay-Z at a Nets game … on the same night.
He’s so big he even got be featured as the “Newsmaker” on CBS Sports Network’s ROME Thursday night. Russell, as usual, didn’t go hog wild with the quotables. But he did have an interesting response when Jim Rome asked him if he wanted the Seahawks to open up the offense more and give him “more responsibility.”
“I have a lot of responsibility already. I have a ton of checks at the line of scrimmage from run to pass and pass to run,” Wilson said. “I think for our team we try to play a very, very physical game. Some teams play to their talents, which is five wide receivers and throw the ball the whole game and spread everyone out. We have great receivers plus a great running back. We arguably have the best running back in the National Football League and he’s so physical. Our backup running back could easily be a starter on any team as well. To have guys like that with a physical running game and a great play action game and deep ball game … and then when we want to go empty and spread everyone out we can do that as well.”
