Following the win, Lockett said, “It’s amazing what we can accomplish when no one cares who gets the credit,” via Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 in Seattle.
A Twitter firestorm quickly broke out with fans assuming Lockett was implying that in the past, Wilson wanted the credit, but now that Geno Smith is the quarterback, Seattle has a more cohesive locker room where everyone shares the credit. But Lockett insisted that is not the case.
“People need to stop reaching! I’ve said this quote like 5-10 times since I’ve been in the league. Stop looking for a story and just let us enjoy our team,” Lockett tweeted.
Before the Week One meeting between the Seahawks and Wilson’s Broncos, Lockett said he would give Wilson a hug on the field, and he urged Seahawks fans to cheer Wilson for the good he did in Seattle.
