Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson just met with the media for a final look back at the just-completed season. But before that, he spent his morning in team meetings, and -- of course -- watching video of yesterday's season-ending loss in Atlanta.
"Just watching the last game one more time," he said. "It was a great battle. Obviously it was unfortunate that we lost the game. There’s a lot to look forward to. Like I said last night, there’s so much to look forward to. Now the pre-season basically starts, the off-season I guess you could say. It really starts now. That’s what we talked about in our team meeting. That’s what I’ve been talking about in terms of the guys in the locker room."
A follow-up asked what he wanted to accomplish in watching the game again.
"Just watching the game and seeing what I could have done better, and what our team could have done better, and what we did really well," he said. "I always am very, very critical of myself, so I like to watch those types of things. I like to watch my footwork more than anything and see am I getting the ball out on time, are my reads correct, am I reading it the way I want to read it in terms of the progressions. For me, when I get my depth and my drops and when I'm making the right protection calls and when I'm getting back in my drops and just trusting the right read, it's pretty hard to stop. I think that's what shows on the film, and guys really, really stepped up their game and made some huge plays for on. The offensive line did a great job. The defense did a great job of keeping us in the game. I basically play the game over in my head. I watch it again, and all the down and distances, look at the situation again, and play the game again."
