After what was a wild season of nail biting wins, and some heartbreaking losses, the Seahawks’ season came to an end in Green Bay as the Packers edged out Seattle 23-28. One of the main reasons the game was even close, after a horrific performance by the Seahawks in the first half, was due to Russell Wilson playing lights out.
The NFL seemed to question how one man could be so good and do it all. This isn’t the first time… there has been somewhat of a running joke in the NFL about players getting random drugs tests after what seem to be some of the players top performances… Former Seahawk, now 49er, Richard Sherman, spoke out about this recently:
Hahahaha ball out and get the double dip…. PED and HGH tests…. hahaha gotta love it …

On Monday, it was Russell Wilson’s turn to get the random test. Oddly, it came on move-out day and during his exit press conference… “Are you guys seeing this?” Luckily, Russell Wilson saw the humorous side of this, while others might have been upset.
Russell Wilson pulled for a random drug test just now. He thought he was being punked.
“Are you serious?”
He then looked at us.
“Gimme a second, guys.”
His exit interview has been delayed ???

It all came down to Russell Wilson being unbelievably good in the second half… The Seahawks erased a 21-3 halftime deficit and had the ball near midfield late in the fourth quarter, trailing 28-23.
Wilson finished the game completing 21/31 passes for 277 yards and one touchdown. He also ran the ball seven times for 64 yards, including a long of 22.
& yes… I’m pretty sure he passed that test, or we would have heard about it by now.
