What the 49ers and Seahawks Had to Say Following the Wild Card Win

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel on the team’s mindset after the Wild Card win:

“We take that and every day you don’t go into all that outside noise, we just focus on what we have here. We just go out there and do our job.”

Defensive lineman Nick Bosa on the 49ers that got fired up in the first half:

“I’m not going to piss off the guys on offense, especially Deebo, because he’s going to make you pay.”

Bosa on the Seahawks offense:

“They came up with a really good game plan and playing a team three times is real, it’s tough. There were some different looks that threw us off in the run game and (Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III) it was a little more patient than we were used to. So we had to adjust and just attack the run game to get back so he couldn’t find those lanes and get those extra yards. “

Running back Christian McCaffrey to continue improving his game:

“You want to be proud of what you put out there, and there’s always things like you might have made mistakes here or done something wrong here and that’s football. That’s what makes it so fun is what the constant pursuit of excellence.”

McCaffrey to win a playoff game at Levi’s® Stadium:

“That’s a lot of fun to win a playoff game at home with the fans going crazy. It’s a special feeling.”

McCaffrey on how quarterback Brock Purdy is in the huddle:

“Being with him in the huddle, he’s prepared and he’s calm, but he’s extremely confident, and he’s exactly what you want in a quarterback. No moment is too big for him, and he does corrections quickly. We saw it today, he’s able to go out there and play with some fluidity, hit the right guys and let everybody else do their job.”

Defensive lineman Charles Omenihu on his sack that forced a fumble:

“We’re all big players, it’s just a matter of who’s going to step up and I thank God that I’ve been able to step up to those big games and help my team win. “

Quarterback Brock Purdy on his emotions ahead of this week’s contest:

“There was some emotion going into the game, you just feel it, in the environment with the fans and our teammates. It’s win or go home. We didn’t feel that for the pregame and whatnot, but once the game started, I I’ve just got to do my job. I’ve got to send it to guys when they’re in space and run from there. But we didn’t get it any better than it was.”

Linebacker Fred Warner on the importance of forcing turnovers:

“Obviously, those turnovers were huge. We know when we get the ball, that’s how we win games. We can get it offensively, take it away defensively, and that’s when you saw us run away with a score.”

Warner on wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk’s impressive block to allow wide receiver Deebo Samuel’s score:

“Aiyuk doesn’t get the accolades and maybe he doesn’t get talked about a lot, but when I saw him block the field for Deebo when he caught him on the way and scored a touchdown — receivers don’t do that — that’s huge. the time. That’s a big play from him at that point that people probably aren’t talking about much. The receivers that do that and are able to get guys off the line, people really notice. That’s why I know he’s going to be a great player in this league for a long time, because he does all the little things necessary to play at a high level.”

Warner on the 49ers’ physical style of play:

“It’s about the little things that people don’t notice. We have great players, but our best players are the ones who are most willing to play with the most effort. To play hard, play physical, in offense, being unselfish to block. and do the dirty work. That’s what makes a great team in my opinion.”
