Shortly after arriving in New Jersey on Sunday night, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson sat down with yours truly for an interview that aired during halftime of the Pro Bowl.

If you missed it (and we hope you didn’t), Wilson talked about his ability to remain calm no matter the circumstances, and whether he’ll still be that way on Super Sunday.

“I’m always poised, I’m always calm,” Wilson said. “I think that the biggest thing and just being the calm in the storm for the other ten guys in the huddle.”

So what will his pulse be just before kickoff?

“Probably beating real slow,” Wilson said. “It will be exciting obviously, there’s no more special moment than this in terms of playing in the NFL. You dream for this as a little kid and I’m so excited about it but at the same time I know that’s the biggest thing that I have to do is calm my nerves, making sure that I play cool, calm, and collected and just go after it.”

Go after it Wilson and his teammates will, in little more than six days.
