Russell Wilson has led the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl and after the NFC Championship game, he sought out Terry Bradshaw. The FOX broadcaster won four Super Bowls with the Pittsburgh Steelers during his career and Inside the NFL showed Wilson asking Bradshaw for advice.
As transcribed by Pro Football Talk:
“I’ve got a question for you: What do we need to do to win it, that’s different? What makes you win it?” Wilson asked Bradshaw.
“You’ve got to be really cool,” Bradshaw answered. “Don’t let the moment catch up with you. You’ve got to play the game down. If you build it up, it’s so important you’ll screw it up and you won’t play well. It’s not just another game, believe me, but you can make it one, just be cool.”
Wilson answered that with, “Yes, sir.”
The whole treat it like another game seems like a cliché, but hey, you can’t question a man with four rings.
