?Obviously you have so much failure in baseball. You have to realize that you have to focus on one thing at a time,? Wilson explained. ?When you?re playing second base or you?re hitting at the plate or whatever, you?re one pitch at a time, one play at a time, and it?s the exact same thing playing the quarterback position.

I have to focus on one play and put my team in the best situation possible and I try to show tremendous poise on the football field and on the sideline to my teammates so they feed off my leadership, and I think that?s a positive.?

?Hopefully I won?t be done for another 15 years or so. Hopefully I?ll be a Pro Bowler. Who knows? Hopefully a Super Bowl winner,? Wilson replied when asked if he wanted to go into broadcasting or teaching after football. ?But after I?m done playing, I?d love to be a head coach or GM.?
