On Sunday afternoon, Russell Wilson was the latest victim of a little thing we will refer to as the Twitter trap.
You know, that unfortunate thing that happens when you tweet something, and people (or an NFL franchise) uncover said tweet at an inopportune time and use it to mercilessly troll you.
It is hard to tell exactly why the Seahawks quarterback decided to tweet this the day before Seattle's season opener against St Louis.
1-0. #GoHawks— Russell Wilson (@DangeRussWilson) September 12, 2015
Some might call it a classic case of hubris. Perhaps he was just practicing a sort of winning mantra? Maybe Ciara told him to do it?
But no matter the motivation, the Rams didn't hesitate to call him out for his statement after St. Louis came up with a big overtime win Sunday:

Yes, you heard him correctly: "1-0, baby. Retweet that!"
This is why football games are played on the field, not on the Internet.
UPDATE: Russell Wilson has answered back with a cheerful message that is undoubtedly a subtweet directed at the Rams:
Our goal is to go 1-0 every week. We fell a little short today, but looking forward to getting back to work! #GoHawks— Russell Wilson (@DangeRussWilson) September 13, 2015
