Short Story: Russell Wilson And Other Notes From Friday's NFL Action

Russell Wilson stole the show on Friday night, but there were plenty of notable performances around the NFL as the preseason continued.

This about sums it up. Here's Matt Cassel after getting drilled and throwing a pick-six to Earl Thomas.

It's because he's being attacked by a moth.



Matt Cassel Does Something Right, Celebrates Hilariously

Matt Cassel has looked somewhat ... off on Friday night. Off is probably the word for it. He hasn't been horrid -- especially behind a rough-looking offensive line -- but he hasn't been anything special either. Whelmed is kind of a good word here.

But he did do something right. He threw a touchdown pass! And it was pretty great, capping an eight-minute drive.

And then he did this.


That's Cassel trying to jump into the celebration and failing hilariously. He ends up eating it in the most fantastic way possible.

Even when Matt Cassel does something right, he manages to add unintentional comedy to our lives. And for that, we should be thankful.



Look, I won't hide my love for Russell Wilson. I enjoyed the living hell out of him last year, and now am able to enjoy him on my own team, the Seattle Seahawks. Watching him light it up this preseason, creating what's become a full-blown quarterback competition, has been a joy. Because, really, you never know what's next.

But this is only partially about Wilson. Yes, he ran around and did stuff on this play. But he had a little help from his friends, too. Oh, and Eric Berry got absolutely wrecked.

Eric, meet Leon Washington. Leon, this is Eric.


This is like watching one of those stunt guys get launched during an explosion in an action movie. Berry got his world rocked by one heck of a cut block.

See? Isn't this fun. Hop aboard the Russell Wilson train. You'll be glad you did.
