Podcast: Catching up with Russell Wilson

By Mike Sando

NEW ORLEANS -- A group featuring Russell Wilson was immediately visible in the New Orleans Convention Center upon my return from the San Francisco 49ers' media session Wednesday morning.

Rather than interrupting Wilson awkwardly and trying to wrangle an interview, I'm happy to pass along a link to Wilson's extended conversation with "Mike & Mike in the Morning" from the ESPN set.

They discussed the most prominent strategic subject in the NFL this season: the sustainability of offenses featuring quarterbacks as runners. Dosage is key, of course. While Wilson and the Seahawks have mixed in designed QB runs, they haven't built their offense around them.

On a side note, Wilson led the NFL in drop backs and ranked fourth in Total QBR when outside the pocket. He ranked ninth in Total QBR from inside the pocket.
