Rich Eisen asks about the adversity faced by the Seattle Seahawks

Wilson, during an interview with Rich Eisen, was asked about his current state of adversity. “Let’s talk about your current situation,” Rich Eisen said to Wilson. “Sitting there at three and seven. The last time you were four games under 500 was freshmen year of College for you. This has not been the feeling you’ve been used to, but what is it like to be in your current state right now?”

Judging by the downfall of the Seahawks since the Week 5 matchup against the Rams. Wilson’s injury has had an enormous impact on the whole franchise, as they have won just one out of their previous six games. The replacement quarterback Geno Smith has failed to deliver frequently. Even the return game of Wilson against the Packers in week 10 was a colossal flop.

“Oh, you know what it is? It’s an opportunity.” Wilson exclaimed. “You know its adversity and adversity fades if you have the right mentality. If you be neutral with it and understand it, it’s a process. And understand it you take every day, you try to find ways to get better and despite all the noise, despite all the mess. You stay focussed on the task and the mission is one game a week, one day at a time, one snap at a time.”
