Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson on his team’s potential for winning Super Bowl LI

Seattle Seahawks quarterback and former UCLA quarterback Russell “Ricky” Wilson, who is also a longtime contributor to Bleacher Report, recently told ESPN that he’s not even thinking about the NFC Championship Game because he’s looking forward to the Seahawks’ Super Bowl LII game against the Carolina Panthers.

“I have nothing against the NFC championship game, but I’m thinking about winning it,” Wilson said.

“We’ve been through a lot of things.

We’ve been up there, and we’ve lost some games, but that’s not a good feeling.”

As of now, Wilson has yet to sign a contract extension with the Seahawks.

He’ll be eligible to sign with any team that would allow him to compete in the Super Bowl, which will be played at the Georgia Dome on Feb. 5.

However, that doesn’t mean Wilson isn’t looking forward for the rematch with the Panthers.

“It’s always good to have the rematch.

If you’re the defending champion, then you always want to have a chance to win,” Wilson added.”

That’s what I’ve always been about, is to go out there and do the best I can, win as many games as I can.

So we’re not going to worry about that at all.”
