Russ should know as much as anyone what the results were last year down the stretch and and the playoff game.
I like to think he's going to embrace this change.
The only thing that gives me pause about this stance is that two or three days after Waldron was hired (you know that by then he and Russell had been in plenty of conversations about the offense, Chris Simms and Colin Cowherd ran with the story that Russell Wilson's Camp were saying that Wilson had zero confidence in the Seahawks coaching staff.
I do not put much stock in either "reporter" but the fact that they would even go there means that there was smoke. It may be that Wilson has warmed to the ideas of getting the ball out quicker in more difficult throws for him, but he may not have reacted well to being told about the things struggled with last year and the new offense that will feature those things.
