Russell Wilson tweets he will 'keep evolving'

Russell Wilson probably didn't get much sleep last night.

In the hours after the crushing loss to the New England Patriots, long after he was done speaking to the media in increasingly despondent tones, Wilson took to Twitter to assure his fans that he will be back.

Less than five hours later, Wilson was back for more, using more characters this time around.

Evolving is undoubtedly a good way to remain relevant in the league, and it wouldn't be all that wise to bet against Wilson, a man who has already overcome criticism for his lack of stature (which he obviously can't control) to become a starter and Super Bowl-winning quarterback in the NFL.

But it isn't just Wilson who might need to up his game in the coming seasons. Seahawks general manager John Schneider might also want to look into upgrading the wide receiver position in 2015 and beyond, as evidenced by a lack of a big-bodied wideout needed to make a touchdown grab in traffic in the final minute of the game. Previously unheralded 6-foot-5 receiver Chris Matthews made key plays throughout but wasn't on the field on the decisive second-and-goal play.

As if Seattle needed more motivation entering the offseason, the loss will only fuel a fire that burns fiercely inside a quarterback who has consistently been told he can't do what he eventually does. Putting it out there on Twitter is merely an announcement of a pursuit upon which we all knew Wilson would embark immediately after the confetti fell in Glendale, Arizona.
