News, notes and quotes: Wilson says he doesn't get flustered

Thursdays are spent with Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman. Here are the highlights of what they said:

> Wilson said he thinks his composure comes from a mix of things: playing professional football, professional baseball, his father dying in 2010, to trying to graduate early from college. "I believe just through experience. Having all these things on me all at once really prepared me for those situations. At the same time, I'm a self-motivator. I want those moments. I think about last week with a 1:55, I want the ball. There's nothing I could ask for more. You're going to win some, you're going to lose some, at the end of the day, I never shy away from that moment."

> Wilson also added: "I don't remember the last time I was ever flustered. The biggest thing for me is I stay composed. I know I'm really young, it's one of those things where it's my second year in the league, I'm just starting. I understand there is going to be a process to learning the whole thing. The game's not easy. Playing in the National Football League, everything's not going to be perfect. They've got great players, too."

> Wilson said the Tennessee defense kind of reminds him of the Seahawks' defense. It's a pressing, in-your-face approach, he said.

> On Sidney Rice, Russell Wilson say, "We'll connect."

> Wilson said he thought they stopped themselves against the Colts.

> Sherman said it's easy to move on from Sunday, just like moving on from a win.

> Sherman also said they had a bad communication day Sunday that led to a bust.

> He's happy for Titans cornerback Alterraun Verner, who is having a strong season. Sherman said he's friendly with Verner and hopes Verner can keep playing well just not against them.

> On the PI calls against the Seahawks last Sunday, Sherman didn't complain much. He said, "It's just one of those days."

> Sherman also says they can't take much away from facing QB Ryan Fitzpatrick when he was with the Bills last year. Sherman says corner in particular concentrate more on concepts that the specific quarterback.

> Richard Sherman also has ruled the pass to Kevin Smith in the Washington/Stanford game incomplete.
