Russell Wilson on Super Bowl XLIX: 'I take full responsibility for it'
"Super Bowl XLIX, I take full responsibility for it," Wilson said.
Wilson threw an interception on Seattle's final offensive play of the game, with the ball on the one-yard line.
"I’m the one that threw the pass, but I know that I’ll throw another," Wilson said. "Hopefully I’ll be remembered for something different."
Wilson also repeatedly expressed confidence in his ability to make it back to the Super Bowl.
"I think that's how I get better, to continue to wake up every morning with this passion, with this fire, not being satisfied with the wins that we've had before and the records and the Super Bowl that I've won," he said.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll drew heavy criticism for choosing to throw the ball near the goal line rather than hand off to bruising running back Marshawn Lynch. Wilson accepted the blame after the game, though. I put the blame on me — I’m the one who threw it,” Wilson said, according to Pro Football Talk. “It’s something you learn from, it’s something you grow from."
