I’m such a big NC State football fan that it is impossible for me to have a NFL team. I’ve tried numerous times to find “my” NFL team, but have never had anywhere close to the passion for them as I do for the Wolfpack so I finally just gave up. I have always been passionate about former Wolfpackers in the NFL so that’s who I root for when I’m watching NFL games. It makes me happy when they succeed and it’s also good for the NC State football program. Cue up the Seattle Seahawks … Super Bowl XLVIII Champs.
Congrats to Wolfpackers Russell Wilson, J.R. Sweezy, and Steven Hauschka! All 3 starters that were instrumental in the Seahawks win. And the Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was a former Wolfpack assistant coach. Couldn’t be happier for all of you. What a way to represent Wolfpack Nation!
Fair or not, NFL QBs are judged by Super Bowl wins. There have only been 31 QBs to win a Super Bowl and Russell Wilson is now on that list. So cool! If only Philip Rivers could add his name to the list too it’d be even better. Wolfpack Nation already knew how special Russell was and now the whole world knows. Below are clips from Russell’s appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. Enjoy!
Wolfpacker Nate Irving was on the flip side of the Super Bowl rout, but played a great game and also represented the Wolfpack well. He made one hell of a play breaking up a possible Russell Wilson TD pass. It sure is tough when Wolfpackers go against each other in the NFL.
