Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is raising eyebrows after saying the four interceptions he threw Sunday were arranged by God to set up the team’s dramatic comeback.

With Wilson floundering in perhaps his worst NFL performance, the Seahawks trailed Green Bay 19-7 with about four minutes left in the NFC Championship Game. Seattle eventually won, 28-22, in overtime to advance to the Super Bowl after Wilson completed the game-winning touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse. Wilson cried after the victory.

“That’s God setting it up, to make it so dramatic, so rewarding, so special,” he said, alone for a moment in the locker room before heading out for the night.

We’ll check back and see what he has to say after the Superbowl.


“…And we pray to our Lord
Who we know is American…
He supports us in war
He presides over football games…”

Eagles – from the song Frail Grasp on the Big Picture




UPDATE February 1, 2015 –

God really isn’t a Seattle Seahawks fan after all.

The Seattle Seahawks lost to the New England Patriots by a score of 28 – 24 in today’s Superbowl. God apparently was just setting the Seahawks up for failure in the NFC championship game. Or maybe He had money on the Patriots. Or maybe He doesn’t exist and the Seahawks lost on their own merits, Which of these possibilities is most likely?
