Video: Russell Wilson talks about overcoming Super Bowl XLIX defeat and what’s ahead

Wondering how Russell Wilson is holding up after the rough Super Bowl XLIX defeat?

You can watch and listen to him talk about it here, in a roughly four-minute video produced by The Players’ Tribune, a website headed up by former baseball great Derek Jeter.

Wilson talks directly to the camera, and in his familiar demeanor, saying that while the loss was difficult he’s focusing now on what’s next.

“I take full responsibility for it, you know?” he says. “One of the reasons I always will and always do is because I know that it’s going to happen again for me. I’m going to be in that situation again.”

Wilson talks of the feeling at the moment of the Malcolm Butler interception that turned th game.

“Boom! It hits me and it’s a tough feeling of losing,” he says. “. … me feeling I didn’t make the play and knowing that it’s over. All the hard work that you’ve put in all season long — the amazing plays, the plays you didn’t make, the great games the comeback wins. All those things come down to that one moment and it feels like it’s lost.”

Wilson says that while there are a lot of moments that can be viewed as turning points in the game, he understands the focus on the final play.

“I’m the one who threw the pass,” he said. “But I know I’ll throw another one. Hopefully I’ll be remembered for something different.”
