When the Patriots played the Packers in November, Phil Simms spoke about a conversation he had with Aaron Rodgers. In the story, he told listeners that Rodgers prefers the football to be OVER-inflated since he has big hands. He also mentioned that Aaron will routinely play with a ball that's over-inflated and simply wait for the refs to notice.

Russell Wilson says God set up his four-interception comeback win. (Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)

MMQB - In the Seahawks‘€™ locker room, maybe 45 minutes after the NFC Championship Game ended, I stood and looked around.

A story in every corner of the room. …

Then, in middle of the lockers in the corner of the room, Russell Wilson, his face still streaked with tears and eyeblack, the happiest guy in the room. …

‘€œThat may be one of the best games in NFL history,’€ said Wilson.

I found Wilson afterward, and asked him about the four picks, and going from the worst game of his life to the most exhilarating in the span of eight minutes of game time.

‘€œThat’€™s God setting it up, to make it so dramatic, so rewarding, so special,’€ he said.

I like Russell Wilson. In my unconsidered, too-lazy-too-do-the-research opinion he’s the best quarterback to be drafted since probably Ben Roethlisberger. Wilson is smart. He takes care of the football (Sunday being the rare exception). He proved last year the moment doesn’t get too big for him. He can drink from my canteen anytime.

And as a Catholic who’s “practicing” only in the sense that one of those spring training drills where the pitchers stand around where spitting sunflower seeds can be considered “practice,” I would never question Russel Wilson’s faith.

But as a Patriots fan? I couldn’t be happier about this. I’ll take an opponent who thinks it was God’s will that he throw four terrible picks over one who’s driven and intense any day of the week and twice on Super Sunday. I want Russell Wilson to believe with all his heart that starting out 1-for-8 with three giveaways was all part of the Almighty’s grand plan. I want him going into the Super Bowl believing that God’s great bucket list reads:

  • Create the universe
  • Make the Earth
  • Adam & Eve
  • Invent animals
  • Noah/Flood
  • Have a Son
  • Create Tim Tebow
  • Make Russel Wilson throw interceptions against the Patriots

…and there are check marks next to all but the last one.

Meanwhile, I’d rather have my quarterback be a guy who takes accountability, hates when he makes a mistake and treats every turnover like it’s a mortal sin that he’d rather walk into hell wearing a flammable suit than ever commit again. I’m fine with athletes like Russell Wilson believing their god guides them. I just prefer guys who believe that god is on the sidelines in a gray hoodie.
