THEY SAID IT
"I thought about him before the game. Might have thought about him once or twice during the game, but I might have done that in a normal week, anyway."
-- 49ers coach Mike Nolan, whose father, Dick, died Sunday.
"They're doing what they always do over there, and we're still trying to get there."
-- 49ers receiver Darrell Jackson, a former Seahawk
"Coach (Mike) Holmgren told us at the end of the week we seem to win when we protect the passer and when we get the other team's quarterback. It's a very common denominator."
-- Seahawks defensive end Patrick Kerney, who had Seattle's first sack.
- The clock is officially ticking on Alex Smith proving he isn't a bust.
- Who would have thought the 49ers could field a worse offense then the 2004 edition.
- You're welcome, New England Patriots. Enjoy the top five pick.
