Not a hot take, not a shot at Cam, just reality: After throwing an interception on the 1-yard in the final seconds of Super Bowl 49, here’s how Seahawks QB Russell Wilson handled some media questions in 2015:
I can’t find the full video, but Wilson definitely didn’t walk out after mumbling 80 words.
No sulking, no hiding behind a hoodie, just a professional who accepted the blame and credited his opponents. I’m not drawing any sweeping conclusions here – it’s just what happened.
We all handle defeat differently – I know I didn’t take it like a professional when I didn’t make the tennis or basketball team in high school, or missed out on a job on ESPN the Magazine a little over a decade ago. I curled up in bed and cursed the world.
Live and learn.
