These are not complete quotes but what the Niners PR staff transcribed.

Head Coach Mike Holmgren

RE: The Victory

"It was a great win for us. Early in the season when you’re playing a division opponent, it’s as big of a game as you can play. We haven’t played our best football on the road, so to come here and win a game, obviously the players are very happy. We played very hard and we wanted the win badly, so we’re very happy."

RE: Defense

"They played a magnificent game. They held Gore to under 100 yards, I think, and that’s quite an accomplishment. We needed them to play that way because we were sputtering around a little bit on offense and they really came through for us. As long as you can do a good job stopping the run and make them throw the ball more, I think that plays to your advantage. Alex is probably a little more mobile than Trent is, but I have to give our guys credit. I think our defensive line and linebackers did a nice job rushing the pass and quite honestly we needed to be better at that, so that was good."

RE: Peterson

"He was fired up. Julian and I both have history here and last year was hard. He felt he didn’t play his best. So he came in with a little bit of an attitude and played well. Make no mistake, they have great fans here, this is a great place and I think he’d tell you his time here was special. But, now, he’s in a different place."

RE: Revenge from last season

"Absolutely I brought up the fact that they beat us twice, but the revenge thing…I’m getting too old for revenge. I was very disappointed in how we played last year. This is my home, where I was born and raised, taught and coached. So, I always want my teams to come here and play well. I don’t think we did that last year, so I was bummed. They’re a good football team with a good coach, but at the same time, we won the division the last few years, so I told them let’s go out there and play like I think we can play."

    was at the game, awesome game, and what an awesome turnout of seahawk fans. a ton of hawk fans. i swear i think the hawk fans were louder than the niner fans. go hawks

  3. Finally, we had a defensive front seven that looked like it can dominate the middle of the field from the get-go to the end. The O-line is improving, and Hasselbeck is looking about as good as you could ever hope for really. Not a bad time, after so much stuttering and stammering around as a team for so long.
