“Jesus is better than the Super Bowl,” says Seahawks Defensive Passing Game Coordinator Rocky Seto, and some Seahawks players are clearly in agreement.
Before their playoff run a group of Seattle Seahawks players sat down with the pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle for a videotaped discussion called, “Who is Jesus?”
“It’s no question he gave us everything,” Seto says during the group interview.
“Literally, one plus one equals two, it’s just that simple. Jesus is better than anything we could ever hope for, even better than the Super Bowl, better than an NFL career.”
Seen nodding their heads in agreement with Seto’s comments are Seahawks’ Quarterback Russell Wilson, Offensive Tackle Russell Okung, Safety Chris Maragos and Long Snapper Clint Gresham.
Seto continued, “I think some us here – all of us here would like to say – you know, who knows what’s going to happen. But if we were ever to win the Super Bowl, to be able to tell everyone that, ‘No, Jesus is still better’”.
“Because as much as we worship this thing called a ring and championship, although we would like to have one for sure, I just can’t wait to tell people if that happens God willing, we will be able to tell people Jesus is way better still.”
“Jesus is love,” says Wilson in the interview, “At the end of the day we are all looking for somebody to comfort us, somebody to be there for us at all times.”
Mars Hill Church claims the video posted Saturday only shows part of the interview, but the full interview will be posted before the Super Bowl.
