Very simple explanation.
The reason I believe Russell Wilson is better than Peyton Manning RIGHT NOW, is Russell’s entire team can win. Only Peyton can win.
Russell doesn’t absorb all the responsibilities of winning like Peyton does. Shut down Peyton, the Broncos are down. Shut down Russell, he’ll inspire his team to win without him.

UMe’s “Respect the Classics” Features Reissued Hip-Hop Albums on Vinyl For The First Time In Years
Talib Kweli & Black Star Albums Available Now
Stay Tuned For New Releases from Jay Z, Public Enemy, Gang Starr, Warren G and more
Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) continues its “Respect the Classics” tribute to many of hip-hop’s finest with the vinyl release of rap icon Talib Kweli’s four historic Rawkus Records albums, including the underground classic, Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star, in a limited edition two-tone black on black picture disc, available now at http://smarturl.it/RespectTheClassics
Established in 1996, Rawkus Records jump-started the careers of legendary artists such as Talib Kweli, Mos Def and Pharoahe Monch, among many others.
Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star was released on August 18, 1998, to critical acclaim. The title is a reference to the Black Star Line, a shipping company founded by Pan-Africanist Marcus Garvey. The album deals with modern-day issues, philosophies and life in Brooklyn. The two MCs had planned to release solo albums around the same time, but decided instead to collaborate on a full-length album. The first single, “Definition (song),” is a reaction to hip-hop’s fascination with death, dedicated to both Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G., with a chorus that gives a nod to Boogie Down Productions’ “Stop the Violence.” “Children’s Story” is a re-imagination of the Slick Rick original, featuring Mos Def cautioning against materialism. The second single, “Respiration,” featuring Common, includes a Hi-Tek produced beat that samples Don Randi’s “The Fox” and another from the hip-hop documentary Style Wars. The track offers a melancholy ode to city life, with references to organic life functions such as breathing, eating and sleeping, but with an ominous edge, as Kweli raps about “sitting on shitty steps/we stooped to new lows, hell froze/the night the city slept.” The album peaked at No. 53 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 13 on the Hip-Hop Albums chart, but has become considered a classic since then.
The other Talib Kweli titles to be reissued on vinyl include Quality, The Beautiful Struggle and Train of Thought, the collaboration between Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek dubbed Reflection Eternal. Quality, originally released in 2002, has not been available in vinyl since 2006, and includes the singles, the Kanye West-produced “Get By” and “Waiting for the DJ.” The Beautiful Struggle, which came out in 2004, has been out of print on vinyl since 2006, and includes the singles “I Try” (featuring MJB) and “Never Been in Love.” Train of Thought, released in 2000, produced the singles “The Blast” and “Love Language,” and hasn’t been available on vinyl since 2003.
The reality all NFL fans are facing right now is, “The NFL is NOT about the Players.” It is a BUSINESS. We are entertained by the NFL Business. Roger Goodell became a Commissioner with the sole intent of running a Business, not watching Marshawn ‘Beast Mode’.
The NFL is providing job opportunities to the most talented athletes across the country to play a Professional Sport; to run a BUSINESS. Once sponsors pulled out of the Minnesota Vikings, it was clear that Adrian Peterson had to be dismissed on paid-leave. They’d rather pay him 690,000 a week to sit on his couch than lose more money by allowing him to come back to ‘work’.
The NFL is under scrutiny because of its employees and how they handle them. I knew when Ray Rice was suspended indefinitely, the rules changed. Where do you go as a disciplinarian after that? Now, the new trend on its way, players will be placed on exempt (banned with pay) while under investigation. They can now test players for HGH. Some of your favorite players are about to be sitting at home very soon without pay because of that.
Players will come and go. But if you believe the NFL will stick their necks out for one of these players again, don’t hold you breath. The playing while under investigation is over. The slap on the wrist suspensions to protect a players livelihood are over. Are you ready for some Football though?!?
