    Maybe he's just getting old but I think there's a chance she just made him soft...

    Imagine being the hardest guy in the NFL out of ANY QB. Then you marry some pampered spoiled baby girl, who is super left wing social activist... I can't imagine maintaining a killer instinct when your wife is literally a spoiled, biased, selfish, aggressively activist pillow puff woman.

    I was saying this stuff 1-2 years ago, Wilson seems distracted to me. I don't want the Seahawks to lose him but at this point I'm not sure if he can win another Super Bowl the way he's been acting and playing...

    The way he acts and plays seems directly related... He's just lost the "Eye of the Tiger"... imo.

  • And of us that are married or a have a truly “significant” other know very well how much that wife/husband/other influences us in our decision making process.

    Why should it be any different for Russ?


    Edit.
    Husky gets it.

    I don't think anyone has issue with that but if that's the case don't sign your long term contract to begin with and if you have a change of heart don't out your OL to get the drama started.

  • "I'm tired if getting hit" somehow translates to "my wife says I need to play for a team with a bigger market to help our brand grow."

    Hilariously pathetic jump.
    Because Wilson plays in the PNW, his wife's ties to her hometown Atlanta are cut?
    If she had that much of an influence, he would've named the Falcons as one of teams.

    They have another home in Los Angeles. That second home doesn't help her be in close proximity with Hollywood?

    What is it with bringing this guy's personal life into this? If he didn't want to be here he would've demanded a trade.
    Some of you really want the guy gone and it shows.
    He's given this team and fan base everything he's got. Leave his personal life alone ffs

  • I think it’s safe to say Ciara has influenced how he dresses and carries himself. He went from a dork to the playboy GQ dude. Maybe that would have happened on its own, but it’s easy to see how a little voice in the ear could have made a difference.

    Claiming our coach is hamstringing our QB makes it clear where you think the problem lies.

    Difference of opinion, thats all.

    Peoples lives change. So yes its possible Russ signed and has since decided that he and his wife would rather be elsewhere. Hes been thinking about it out loud as far back as 2019.

    Its pretty simple really. Seattle isnt for everyone.


    To your first point, I believe it is obvious that Wilson is hamstrung because of the super conservative offense that is run for the first 3 quarters. If it doesn't work, the 4th quarter is a gunslinging free for all that only works if Wilson is perfection on a plate. It is my belief that if the coaching staff would allow for a more balanced offense throughout the game, our HoF quarterback would be more effective, happier, win more games, and be finishing his career right here.

    To your second point, if he has truly been thinking about leaving since 2019 he signed a huge contract with the intent of voiding it and demanding a trade. This does not seem like the person that has been the face of our team since the day he arrived. You know, the guy who isn't quite enough of a bad boy to get the respect of some teammates.



    Your first paragraph is a common fallacy that we Seahawk fans have thrown around for a while now but statistically has been proven to be at times untrue (if we define conservative with run/pass splits) Its one of those things that we have all repeated enough times it becomes believed without merit at times.
    Morever, it could be argued that Russ himself is at times responsible for the slow starts with poor play. He has struggled over long stretches of both this year and last.

    Your second paragraph is a non starter. I never claimed Russ signed it with the intention of voiding it and demanding a trade. Read it again :)


    Ok, enjoy the mediocrity that we will be in for a decade. Hope you are at least man enough to cheer when we suck again. Oh wait, without Wilson we will win the SB. Moron.



    Now we are talking about mediocrity for a decade and my manhood?

    Your arguments are all over the place. ;)

    Whatever point it is you are trying to make, you win my friend lol. Take care

    Good point.

    He definitely carries himself differently.

    Which is totally fine. But its also fine, considering the circumstances, to wonder if that influence is also affecting what may be the biggest impact to the organization ever.

    That some people are saying its off limits to discuss on a message board is so strange to me. Nobody here is knocking on his door or sitting on his lawn. We are just random dudes talking on the internet :lol:

  • How the guy at fault is escaping blame is beyond me.

    We have fans twisting themselves into knots trying to find a way to pin the blame on everyone but the people that most of what we know indicates the blame falls on.

    There is not a single piece of information leaked from a credible source that says 'Russ talked to Ciara and decided he needed to leave Seattle."

    You don't need extra explanations.

    We have plenty of evidence where Russ and Pete do not match on philosophies, goals, play style, etc.

    We have plenty of evidence where Russ and Pete are in a power struggle.

    We don't need some mystery 3rd party to pin blame on.

    The club had a choice, keep Pete and lose Russ or keep Russ and get rid of Pete. For some reason that I still cannot fathom they chose Pete. Pete and Russ cannot coexist.

    Now you can blame Russ for signing the extension knowing he couldn't continue with Pete, or you can blame Pete for stubbornly refusing to change as the entire NFL changes around him. But blaming Ciara is a weird stretch that makes little sense because you have to make up 75% of your backstory to support it.

    You don't need new reasons. There are plenty staring you in the face. Pick a side, Russ or Pete and pin the blame where it belongs.

    I'd rather not pick a side. Obviously things have been going bad behind the scenes for a while. Maybe Russ is more diva than we know of...maybe Pete is not willing to adapt or listen? The fact is something has caused the rift and the entire organization is going to feel it for a few years.

  • Russ deserves better.
    We all b!@ch about Pete.
    10 years is a long time to be married to anything.
    A fresh start does most people good in these situations.
    Ciara is doing what any good wife should do.
    Encourage her husband to be his best and maximize his potential to whatever degree.

    Like we haven't seen the rest of our beloved SB team walk away disgruntled.
    How dare Russ be any different.

    Blaming Ciara is an easy/the hot excuse to avoid discussing that the roses don't smell as pretty as we thought here in Seattle.

    The Golden Boy is disgruntled himself now.
    That outta speak it's volumes.

  • It's good to hear from those who choose not to imprison themselves within the mental trap of assigning blame. That doesn't really lead anywhere or promote growth. I suppose that is why Pete's in season program embraces a weekly tell the truth meeting.

    I value the thoughtful messages of the free thinkers that post here.

    Carry on.

    Before she met Russell Ciara had to cancel a rural fair tour because no one bought tickets. She had a couple hits in the 2000's, but hasn't done anything since musically.

    I'm sure she's a very nice woman, and she obviously makes Russell happy, but make no mistake she's definitely enjoying her fame resurgence being married to Russell, and that probably means she's chirping in his ear about all of this.

  • I don’t know what role, if any, that Ciara has played in everything. I do know that she isn’t some anonymous, civilian wife who needs to be left alone and protected. She is a purposely public figure and that makes this thread fair game. It’s a mess and both RW and PC share the blame.

  • Cyrus12 wrote:So how much do you think behind the scenes Ciara is impacting Wilson's desicion making process. She has her own "brand" and perhaps she isn't getting the attention she wants by being with a guy that doesn't play in a big market. How much do you think she in his ear? All the teams on the list would help her exposure. I had never heard of her before she was with Wilson but admittedly I am out of touch on that style of music.


    Anyone in a marriage/relationship that's not completely one-sided has heavily influence from their Significant Other. I want to say in general the happiness of your marriage/relationship should trump the happiness of your fan base.

    So that being said, how much do I think she is in his hear? A TON. Is it absurd? no.

    Do I think she is in his ear for her own benefit? No.

    Do I think she is in his ear for the benefit of both of them? Yes...

    I seriously don't think she is trying to revive her music career, but if I'm some millionaire living in Seattle. Me and my significant other have the option to live a continued great life elsewhere 6-9 months out of the year. I would seriously consider it.

    I love Seattle, but that's also because I am a middle income American. If I'm in the 1%, a lot of those places we all love to hate (LA, NYC, etc.) become a lot more desirable because your lifestyle there is just so much better when you have the money to afford the lifestyle.

    RW already has his ring, he already has his fame. It is obvious he himself wants to continue his brand, the Seattle market is not great in the grand scheme.

    In the music industry, if I were to compare the music industry to NFL QBs and lets say Beyonce is Peyton Manning, elite QB that will be remembered beyond her prime. Than Ciara is like Matt Ryan or something. Was very good at some point in time, has potential to continue being good, and remebered as such. But never quite made it to elite level HOF and will never. That being said I feel like the ability to stay in the limelight and create additional brands in the entertainment industry has more potential than for an athletee. Once you stop playing as an athlete, a few years later you kind of just become a broadcaster at best and 5-10 years later the new generation barely knows you. In the entertainment industry you have the ability to create other brands to continue your wealth...fashion, headphones, baby products, producers, record labels, etc. I mean it exists even right now, people still know Ciara and she hasn't had a hit record in a long time. Tony Romo has been out of the game for like 2 years and he's damn near forgotten already.

  • Ciara is not just a Singer, she's a model and has lines of products and probably other interests.

    There is the entourage thing as a singer and that crowd, but then you have the other crowed with the Modeling industry as well.

    Chicago would enhance her footprint in two of her interests minimal I am sure.

    A trade to New Orleans would make that interesting. Great destination for him, not so for her.

Branding...

    See also Trump, Don J. He's made business branding into an art form.
    PLEASE don't make this about politics, just branding vis-a-vis Ciara.

    For example, Ciara is worth only $20m, while Beyonce is worth $200m
    Russ is worth $135m while Brady is worth $200m and Gisele has $400m, chiefly for standing nicely.

    PLEASE don't make this about politics, just branding vis-a-vis Ciara.

    For example, Ciara is worth only $20m, while Beyonce is worth $200m
    Russ is worth $135m while Brady is worth $200m and Gisele has $400m, chiefly for standing nicely.


    Wow! Gisele's net worth is double that of Tom Brady? He sure set himself up nicely.


    Apparently he’s just a trophy husband.

    Pretty much, yeah.

    But he's still an individual. Same as Kaep. Kaep had his GF speak out for him on Twitter and still does and I'm like Dude, you are an NFL quarterback and these are negotiations and I don't care to hear from the GF. I want to hear from you.

    And Russ marketing perfume? That's so bizarre. What's the point here, eau de male fragrance? Why the hell would I want to wear anything like that?

    We have fans twisting themselves into knots trying to find a way to pin the blame on everyone but the people that most of what we know indicates the blame falls on.

    There is not a single piece of information leaked from a credible source that says 'Russ talked to Ciara and decided he needed to leave Seattle."

    You don't need extra explanations.

    We have plenty of evidence where Russ and Pete do not match on philosophies, goals, play style, etc.

    We have plenty of evidence where Russ and Pete are in a power struggle.

    We don't need some mystery 3rd party to pin blame on.

    The club had a choice, keep Pete and lose Russ or keep Russ and get rid of Pete. For some reason that I still cannot fathom they chose Pete. Pete and Russ cannot coexist.

    Now you can blame Russ for signing the extension knowing he couldn't continue with Pete, or you can blame Pete for stubbornly refusing to change as the entire NFL changes around him. But blaming Ciara is a weird stretch that makes little sense because you have to make up 75% of your backstory to support it.

    You don't need new reasons. There are plenty staring you in the face. Pick a side, Russ or Pete and pin the blame where it belongs.


    The change thing is weird, because we changed offensive philosophy last season and hung on to that change longer than we should have with him costing us three wins with his turnovers. Good coaches do not allow their QB to cost them games when they are in the hunt for home field advantage. Let Russ cook worked against average to poor defenses. When we faced defenses that were good to great, it fell on it's face. I am not against Wilson throwing as much as he'd like. I am against him not taking short and intermediate throws when the receiver is open and he did that a ton last season. Several of his interceptions were him making throws that should not have been made. It had a touch of Favre to some of them, i.e. my arm is good enough that I can complete this pass. I have actually looked at this whole saga from a different angle as Russ wanting out. I think he did not like the deserved criticism of his play (he only had three games of the last three quarters of the season that would be considered elite) and he shifted the blame to his offensive line and coaches for changing the scheme that he cost us games running.

    Oh no, Gisele ruined Tom Brady, cuz she's obviously in his ear, probably even responsible for him quitting on the Patriots.
    This blaming Ciera angle on Russ getting pi$$ed about being hit & beat all to hell, is just plain childish.
    If there's friction between Pete & Russ, maybe we should be pissed at Russ' kids, because you know that they are a probably a distraction, hell, maybe his Agent is to blame for all this foo-fer-rah LOLOLOL

    Because Russell Wilson has enough smarts to realize, that you make the money while you have the sponsors, that will promote your brand and because companies are in business to make money.
    Russ would be an IDIOT if he didn't take advantage. :irishdrinkers:

  • I agree with, and it might be a first, Twisted Huskey... I think every wife is in the ear of her man... How much, who knows.

    but... it's clear, assuming the news stories we read are accurate (i still question that but for the sake of argument).

    Wilson is thinking about Wilson and not so much the team...I do think Ciara has him going on this GQ thing.

    As far as Pete and Wilson co existing, Pete has the final say and that's the way it should be. Russ is out of line trying to pull a Brady and doing it publicly. If Russ wants to go somewhere else I have no problem with that if he feels he is bigger than the team... Go! Nobody is bigger than the team...not even Pete. So there are those that will disagree with me that's just how i see it...lets see if Pete can work this one out.

  • I’ve seen this thread for awhile now and amazingly enough, it hasn’t been removed. You can post a topic in here about an ex-Seahawk and quite possibly see it deleted or moved to another forum but, let’s have an entire thread about Russell’s wife on here.

    Regardless if she’s a public figure or not, who the f@&$ are you all to comment on this man’s spouse? Unfortunately for you, his marriage is bigger than football. Everyone’s entitled to an opinion but trying to tie in the way he dresses down to his performance is just plain stupid.

    If you’re married, been married, will get married....you should realize that “Let’s address it...Ciara” is about as ignorant as a topic can get . Additionally, most of you with these negative child-like comments would wilt like the lil’ beyotch you are if asked to talk down on his wife while in his presence. Good thing your keyboard keeps you anonymous. Whew!

    You get zero respect in my book. Just like the respect, or lack thereof, you’re showing Russ.
