SANTA CLARA -- Two weeks ago, Seattle Seahawks players Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman enjoyed a turkey meal on the 50-yard line at Levi’s Stadium.
Because the made-for-TV dining experience happened after the Seahawks’ 19-3 victory on the SF logo, understandably it did not go over so well with the 49ers’ fan base.
Wilson on Wednesday said he was only doing what he was told and did not mean to show a lack of respect to the Seahawks’ NFC West rival.
“Honestly, I had no idea,” Wilson said on a conference call with Bay Area reporters. “I wasn’t even thinking about that. I had no idea. The NBC people, they just put us on the field. I don’t pay any attention to that kind of stuff. I just go where I’m directed.
“There’s no disrespect to the San Francisco 49ers and their organization. We know they’re a great organization that’s won a lot of championships and a lot of Super Bowls. And we’re trying to do a similar thing.
"And you just take it one day at a time, and you respect the game and you respect the players of the game. You respect the process of the game.”
On Wednesday, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was asked for his thoughts on the Seahawks' post-game meal.
“(It was) not something I was necessarily happy about," Kaepernick said.
