Russell Wilson: “I believe God placed me in this city for a reason”

Russell Wilson and the Super Bowl? He says he was destined for it.

He told the Seattle Seahawks before Sunday’s NFC Championship game that they were there for a reason. Now with Seattle searching for its first Super Bowl in franchise history, he believes this is the team that is destined to bring it the Lombardi Trophy.

“I believe God placed me in this city for a reason,” Wilson said. “I’m going to trust that. That never wavers for me. I’m going to trust that the Lord has put me here for a reason and

Richard Sherman: “I wasn’t committing any crimes, doing anything illegal, I was showing passion.”

Richard Sherman spoke in a press conference for the first time since the now viral interview following the NFC Championship victory against the San Francisco 49ers when he called wide receiver Michael Crabtree “sorry” and said he is the best cornerback in the game. It came minutes after sealing the Seahawks’ victory with a deflection of a pass to Crabtree in the end zone that linebacker Malcolm Smith corralled for the interception.

Here is most of what Sherman had to say:

It is what it is. Things like that happen

Good morning.

Let’s get rolling with Seahawks stuff:

> My advance of the game talks about a lot of the “bad blood” quotes are coming out of San Francisco while the Seahawks sit back and let it be. Maybe that’s because the 49ers need this game much more than Seattle.

> Our Dave Boling writes about the stunning lack of yardage allowed by the punt team. I know we’ve touched on this prior, but the numbers just continue to get more ridiculous. From Boling:

News, notes and quotes Wednesday: Harvin on the run

In addition to the possible return to practice of Brandon Browner, Percy Harvin was back in the mix Wednesday doing some light running.

Pete Carroll once again said Harvin is day-to-day, and was cryptic when asked what procedure Harvin had done over the weekend.

“Doctor’s procedure stuff,” Carroll said. “They did some stuff to him to make sure he was relieving and kind of inflammation. He’s in good shape now. He won’t practice today, but he will run and we’ll see what happens tomorrow.”

Good morning.

I wrote about the Seahawks blasting through any potential distractions resulting from suspension talk or rust after the bye week.

I thought Red Bryant had some interesting thoughts, per usual, on the matter.

“If anything, we rallied around each other even more,” Bryant said. “It’s unfortunate a couple of our guys got jammed up. But, we support those guys fully. We know there’s a lot of facts behind the scenes in the situations that a lot of people are not privy to.

“They were quick to make judgments. We knew we wanted to go out there and play for those guys and we played for Walter (on Munday).

“We looked at it as another opportunity for this team to come together and we’re not going to let nuttin’ get in our way and deter us from what we’re trying to accomplish.”

Morning Links: Seahawks have stranglehold on NFC

Good morning.

Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas walked off the field in celebration shouting directly into a television camera to end the night.

“When we prove what we know is true, we’re going to let you know about it,” Thomas said.

The Saints had their plane break down and had to stay in Seattle overnight.

If that doesn’t sum up how things went Monday night, not sure what does. Seahawks 34, Saints 7.
