When Russell Wilson cooks it’s anything but a Kitchen Nightmare

Move order Gordon Ramsay, it’s time to let Russ cook.

Russell Wilson, the star quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, has been one of the best players in football in recent years. 

In the lead-up to Sunday’s game against the Patriots, New England head coach Bill Belichick called Wilson “underrated,” and Belichick knows a thing or two about great quarterbacks.

This is when the mantra “Let Russ Cook” comes in. Fans wanting Coach Carroll to loosen the reins on this underrated monster and let him show off to the best of his God-given ability.

Letting him loose will only benefit you, because when you let Russ cook it’s anything but a Kitchen Nightmare… unless you’re one of the 11 players on the defensive side of the ball.

Wilson is off to an incredible start in 2020. He has the fifth-most passing yards in the league with 610, but has done so on just 63 attempts. For comparison, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen leads the league with 729 passing yards but has passed the ball nearly 20 more times.

Wilson is second in the league with a 9.7 yards per pass average, and he leads the league in touchdown passes (9), completion percentage (.825), and quarterback rating (140).

So, with numbers like that, is 2020 the year Wilson finally gets his name in the MVP conversation?

Wilson is entering his ninth season in the NFL, is a six-time Pro Bowler and a Super Bowl champion, yet he has never received a single vote in the MVP race.

Let’s just call a spade a spade – Russell Wilson is being disrespected. He said so himself back in May.

Now, let’s not take away from Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson, the 2018 and 2019 MVPs respectively. Those two were more than deserving, but for Wilson to not receive a single vote is just head-scratching.

Perhaps the best player isn’t always the one walking away with all the hardware. Just look at the NBA.

Controversy has surrounded the 2019-2020 MVP of Giannis Antetokounmpo with arguments abound that LeBron James was robbed. There is little doubt that even at 35-years-old James is the best basketball player on the planet and has been for more than a decade, but he only has four MVP awards to show for it. I say “only” because it should have been more.

James didn’t shoot the three like ’14-’15,’15-16 MVP Steph Curry. James didn’t rack up triple-doubles like ’16-17 MVP Russell Westbrook. James didn’t light up the scoreboard like ’17-’18 MVP James Harden. Yet, even in the years he didn’t take home the award, he was still the best player in the game.

Wilson is much the same.

He has never rushed for 1,000+ yards like 2019 MVP Lamar Jackson did from the quarterback position last season. He has never passed for 50 touchdowns like 2018 MVP Patrick Mahomes. He has never passed for more

How Do I Stop My Jack Russell From Peeing In The House – House Training A Jack Russell Puppy

That's a good question. How to house train a Jack Russell puppy is one of the most daunting tasks you'll face as a dog owner. However, because Jack Russells are so intelligent, house training a Jack Russell puppy can be accomplished easily and quickly if you follow some basic guidelines.

Puppies 8-10 Weeks Old

Depending on how old your puppy is, you may be expecting too much. If your puppy is too young, physically, he may not be able to hold his bowels. Most dogs come to their new homes 8-10 weeks of age. At this stage, they are unable to hold their bladder for an entire night and they have to be taken out every few hours.

If your JRT is less than 6 months old, be prepared that you're going to have less than perfect compliance to house training and that you'll have accidents at times. Be patient and stay positive.

Getting Started

First, and foremost, if you really want learn how to house train a Jack Russell puppy, you have to be willing to take at least 2 weeks off work. Why? Because you'll need to keep watch over your pup very carefully so that you can sense when he has to pee and then intercede.

Designate His Own Space

Designate a space just for your JRT. Make it a space where the floor is easy to clean. This will be his play and sleep area. It should be an area that can be easily closed off and small enough to be manageable.

This will be your terrier's "room" until house training gets under way and until you introduce the crate. Get him a blanket – perferably one with your scent on it, a bowl of water and some toys, and keep it in his new "room."

Don't Let Home Roam Free

If you're serious about house training a Jack Russell puppy, and want fast results, your Jack Russell can't have free access to the house until he's fully house trained.

I know that sounds cruel, but there's a good reason for this kind of rigid restriction in the beginning. If you give your dog free reign of the house, he'll pee all over the place. You won't have an opportunity to intercept him and take him to the appropriate place you want him to eliminate – which is outside.

When you're learning how to house train a Jack Russell puppy you're going to be asked to do a lot of things that seem cruel to your dog at first. But you've got to trust the process and do what you're asked to do if you want results.

Keep Your Eyes on Him Every Minute

Your job is to watch your pup like a hawk. If you have to wash dishes, tie a tether to him, this way he can only go so far and you can still catch him in the act if he starts to go to the bathroom.

During Jack Russell house training, it's …
