On the week out west: "It's been a long week. It's been a long week. We just have to stay true to who we are, and we've been having a great week of practice. Keep the tempo up and try to find ways to win."
On facing Seattle: "It's game where execution is going to be key. Valuable real estate as far as protecting the ball, field position and just doing the little things right. That's going to make a big difference in the game."
On Richard Sherman's karma comment: "It's irrelevant what he says right now. I have a lot of respect for Richard. And I don't think that has anything to do with karma – an opposing team's flag was in my stadium."
On his motivation now:"Winning. Same as it's always been and same as it always will be. Just finding ways to win."
On practicing at San Jose State: "Nothing different, just practicing. I don't want to make anything out of it. We have to find ways to create our own luck, starting with this game right here."
What he likes about playing the Seahawks: "The attitude. Just from the outside looking in, it just looks like when everything is going right, they are having fun. Same for us. I always respect these type of battles and actually look forward to it."
On the season:"It's not one thing that has resulted in the position where in now. It's a culmination of things. And starting with myself, we all can be better. I don't think we're playing great team ball at times. We have get back to offense, defense, special teams playing together... We have a great locker room where guys are sticking together, and it's still a great atmosphere. But in-game, when the offense scores or when the defense makes a stop, we have to be hand in hand creating success. That's been our lull up to this point."
