Russell Wilson said he slept two or three hours a night to rehab more

hqdefault

Russell Wilson has water that he thinks prevents concussions, supernatural healing abilities which keep high ankle sprains and MCL sprains from causing him to miss so much as a practice, and has now admitted that he doesn’t really sleep.

Coupled with the fact he lives in the rainy Northwest and dresses stylishly, it may finally be time to consider that Wilson’s actually a vampire.

Along with the previous report in TheMMQB.com that Wilson had a rehab specialist move into his house (And Drew Morcos sounds like the kind of human name a vampire would take if I’ve ever heard one), Wilson told Peter King after Sunday’s win over the Jets that he basically doesn’t sleep.

“Drew’s a movement specialist,” Wilson said. “So I was pretty much keeping it moving all week. I’m on a bike, or I’m doing one-legged squats. I’d go to bed maybe at 1, then wake up super early to do more icing around 3 or 4.”

That sounds impressive, maybe too impressive, especially since Wilson is a newlywed with a lovely bride at home, who may not have known she was signing up for one of her husband’s vampire trainer buddies moving in during the season.

“We were all in,” Wilson said. “Ciara’s great about it. She was at the game today too, with about 30 family and friends.”

Until I see pictures of them eating garlic together in the sunlight over the bye week, this is pretty much the theory I’m going to go with.

    Don’t forget …. he also believes in fairytale religious figures who collude to determine the winners of football games. Like when his team was chosen to beat the Packers.

    This Gantt troll loves making punchlines about Wilson’s water, but there are studies on Pubmed that show oral consumption of electrokinetically modified water attenuates muscle damage and improves postexercise recovery.

    You’re just a blog writer though, so I understand that you’re not educated enough to understand scientific literature.

    It’s Tom Brady who thinks his “Neurosafe” water prevents concussions

    Sleep is good recovery too. But okay.

    Getting less sleep would make it harder for an injury to heal. Recovery of the brain and body happens with adequate sleep, purposely sleeping less is stupid.

    Super quarterback, and total flake. Sleep is a key component in recovery and getting up to ice is double stupid. Even the doctor who originally posted the study that made RICE popular has issued a retraction. Cryotherapy actually doesn’t speed healing and might actually inhibit the flow of natural anti-inflammatories to the injury site. All of the dopey pitchers sitting with a bag of ice taped to their elbow are only accelerating their visit to Dr. Andrews for Tommy John surgery. And it isn’t helping heal up Wilson either.

    John Moffitt knew: Russell is a robot.

    I’m sure Ciara is helping with rehab too which would account for less sleep…..at least for me it would.

    Vampires? Really Darrin? Piss poor attempt at humor.

    And another dummy? I would tend to believe that Russ, as “flakey” as he is, knows his body better than you do…so….perhaps pie hole shutting is in order.

    Love all the brilliant analysts in this thread.

    A virtual medical brain trust.

    Here’s a fact.

    Wilson played with a high ankle sprain and a sprained MCL

    And he had a QBR of 133.5

    I’ll go with his ideas about rehabbing.

    Not to mention, the guy has played through a lot of injuries that were never even listed.

    Plus…how about what he did after getting hit in the head, intentionally, by Clay Mathews. The guy is amazing.

    You may not agree with his beliefs or with his rah-rah attitude….but the guy can ball and is one tough SOB.

    23/32, 309 yards, 3 TD’s, 0 INT’s, 133.5 rating.

    Shut up.
