If you are at all like me, then you love the “America’s Game” documentaries on NFL Network, the hour-long shows that profile every Super Bowl champion. I’ve seen every one, and some on multiple occasions.
And if you are also a Seahawks fan, then you are going to love the “America’s Game” program debuting Wednesday, which details the 2013 season of the Seattle Seahawks.
It will air at 5 p.m. Seattle time, and undoubtedly will have lots of repeat viewings later, as well.
Here’s a press release from the NFL Network with some details and some quotes:
On Wednesday, September 3 at 8:00 PM ET, the Emmy-winning series America’s Game profiles the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks. America’s Game: 2013 Seattle Seahawks features quarterback Russell Wilson, Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman and head coach Pete Carroll recounting the Seahawks’ run to the franchise’s first Super Bowl title in their own words. Actor and native of Mount Vernon, WA, Jim Caviezel lends his voice to this year’s edition.
Below are select quotes from America’s Game: 2013 Seattle Seahawks:
- “We should have won that game…Myself and Earl Thomas sat there in the locker room for about three hours after that game and just [said], ‘We’ll never lose again in the playoffs, we’ll punish whoever gets in our way.’” – Richard Sherman on the playoff loss to the Atlanta Falcons the previous season
- “We were the guys that were the underdogs. People said we weren’t smart enough or couldn’t make the plays when we needed to.” – Russell Wilson on the Seahawks’ roster
- “That’s really the philosophy: we’re in a relentless pursuit of finding the competitive edge in everything we do. We’re either competing or we’re not.” – Pete Carroll on the Seahawks’ philosophy
- “He thought that was going to be a touchdown too. That would have been his third touchdown in three years against the Seattle Seahawks…But it was his seventh interception against the Seattle Seahawks. And once again, at the end of the game trying to throw a fade to [Michael] Crabtree, it’s like two years in a row your season ends the same way. You would think he would learn.” – Sherman on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s final throw of the NFC Championship Game
