Seahawks players say they don’t know anything about deflated footballs – all they know is they’re playing the Patriots on Feb. 1 in Glendale, Arizona and that this investigation will have no bearing on their Super Bowl match-up.
“I don’t know anything about that, I honestly don’t, so there’s not much I can really comment on that,” Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said.
The Seahawks quarterback knows the Patriots are a dangerous opponent, no matter how much air is in the football.
“You know obviously they’re a great team, you know, so I don’t think that has an issue probably but I have no idea,” he said.
Wilson’s teammate Richard Sherman is never shy when it comes to speaking his mind, but even he steered clear of the accusations the Patriots are facing.
“If it’s against the rules it’s against the rules. It’s not going to have any effect on this game. You know nobody is going to get suspended nothing is going to happen. They’re going to play this game,” Sherman said.
Colts tight end Dwayne Allen said the Patriots would have won even if they played with “soap” instead of footballs, something Sherman recognized as well.
“It didn’t have much effect on the game if any,” he said. “Whatever they did, the risk reward was greater.”
The Seahawks are leaving all the talk about the Patriots being cheaters to those who will watching the Super Bowl.
Right now, they’re more concerned about what else Bill Belichick might have up his sleeve.
