Some quick hits from after the game. We expect to have full quote sheets shortly:
First, here’s my game story.
> Overwhelming sentiment in the lockerroom was disappointment as opposed to anger that filled the lockerroom after the loss to the Colts.
“We’re not worried about anything,” cornerback Richard Sherman said. “There’s no chance for us to be worried about anything. We would have loved to get the win, but it doesn’t really change anything for us.”
> As noted in the postgame reaction, K.J. Wright broke a bone in his right foot. He’s out six weeks. Malcolm Smith took his place. No one commented on or was asked about if Wright’s helmet hit anyone when he threw it in frustration after the injury.
> Despite attempts to push the story earlier in the week, there was no postgame vitriol. Really, there was a lot of credit being given from each side.
“It was a tough, tough game,” Frank Gore said. “Seattle, give it up to them.”
“They played a great game,” Red Bryant said. “You’ve got to give them a lot of credit.”
> Here’s Gore explaining what happened on his 51-yard run:
“When I saw the hole, I kind of knew 29 (Earl Thomas) was going, he’s so fast to the ball. I kind of knew he was going to overrun it. So, I kind of set him outside and then broke him back because he’s so aggressive.”
Here’s what Thomas said:
“I don’t know if it was a trap or what,” Thomas said. “You just try to track the hip and close the space and force him to your help, but I didn’t know there was no help.”
Thomas said he was a little frustrated playing middle field safety the whole game because he wanted to be involved in more plays.
“You just take care of that stuff in-house and get back to work,” Thomas said. “This is a great learning experience for us where we didn’t come out on top. This is going to tell us a lot about our team.”
> On the blocked punt, Pete Carroll said they just missed a block on a routine fit. They just blew it.
> Both teams could hardly move the ball in the second half. The Seahawks had 83 yards and the 49ers 141.
> Russell Wilson had his lowest completion rate (60 percent) since the Monday night game against St. Louis (55.6).
> Pete Carroll:
“Everything is out there. We have got three huge games coming up here and we got to get back to work.”
“It may be a good team. It may be a good time for us to get back to work and still focus. All of our goals are still in front of us.”
