SEATTLE – Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is known for his Championship Mindset.

1 – 0 every week. That’s his motto.

Wilson took that very mindset into the NFC Championship Game. He never doubted that the Seahawks would be heading back to the Super Bowl – even when the Green Bay Packers had a commanding 16 – 0 lead over the Hawks at halftime.

Only one microphone was recording Wilson that day and Q13 FOX has the sounds of the game as he led the Hawks to one of the most incredible comebacks in NFL history.

“Jonny! We’re gonna win this game man.
Hey, keep working it baby, let’s go, let’s go, let’s go baby.
We only got four minutes left, let’s go. Stay in it.
Man, I want it. Man, I want it! I hate losing.”

Wilson shows tremendous leadership and inspiring faith both on and off the field.

“Why not us?”
“Make them notice.”
“One Mission.”
“Business Trip.”

It’s mind over matter for Russell Wilson.

“Man, I want it. Man, I want it! I hate losing.
Believe in me, love of God. It’s all about you.
You just gotta keep believing man. No doubt on my mind, bro.
Wait for the situation, bro. Let’s go big, bro. We’re meant for it, man. One play at a time. Let’s just execute.
We gotta score this drive right here. Hey man, just keep believing. One play at a time. Let’s go! We’re gonna get it done.”

Watch and hear Russell Wilson lead the Seahawks to victory Friday, January 30th at 6:00am only on Q13 FOX News This Morning.

You can catch mic’d up segments on Seahawks Saturday Night at 10:30 p.m. on Q13 FOX throughout the season.
