Like a lot of people, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson feels that he has heard enough about Deflategate.
Asked what he thinks it means that the Patriots allegedly deflated the footballs they used on offense against the Colts, Wilson said it’s a big nothingburger.
“It had nothing to do with anything,” Wilson said. “We’re not focused on that. We’re focused on playing our football and playing one play at a time, and trying to find a way to win the Super Bowl. . . . I don’t think the integrity of the game’s under assault or whatever you want to say. I think that we have a lot of great football players in this football league and we do things the right way.”
Asked if he does anything with the footballs the Seahawks use on offense, Wilson answered, “No.”
“In terms of the football pregame, I just want to have a football out there to throw. That’s all I look forward to,” he said. “All those distractions about the footballs have nothing to do with us.”
Whether Deflategate is a distraction for the Patriots remains to be seen, but the Seahawks are doing their best to say nothing that would turn it into a distraction for their team as well.
