player speak qb: russell Wilson

• Wilson has 20 victories through his first two seasons, third most for a QB in NFL history behind Ben Roethlisberger (22) and Dan Marino (21).

• Against the Panthers in Week 1, Wilson set a career high in passing yards (320) and tied a career high in completions (25).

• On Harvin … “He’s a special player. You don’t find too many guys that can do what he can do on the football field.”

• On personal accomplishments … “It doesn’t mean anything. The thing that means the most is it means we’re winning football games. … At the end of the day, that’s all I care about.”

coach speak pete carroll

• The 62-year old Carroll is in his eighth season as an NFL head coach (fourth with the Seahawks). He is a former Vikings and Gophers assistant.

• On his impression of Harvin … “He’s extraordinarily competitive. Fierce competitor and we couldn’t ask for an attribute that we champion more here in our program.”

• On his battered offensive line … “We really missed three guys out of last week’s game that have a chance to be back this week.”

• On the number of former Vikings players/staff on the Seahawks … “It seems like, for whatever reason, it got connected and we keep bringing in guys that played for the Vikings. I have no problem with it.”
