"A lot of goods things happened, a lot of speed it feels like. Guys are playing real aggressive. I know we look like we are somewhat of a young team but we have a lot of football in us. Guys seem to have a good sense for what we are trying to do on both sides of the ball at an early date and we are executing a lot of stuff. We are going to just keep on marching and see what happens…. I thought the whole thing was really fast and sharp and all of that."
Pete Carroll on the play of the quarterbacks:
"I thought we were a little inaccurate throwing the ball. We were behind guys a lot with the football and I think it was a number of guys. All three of the guys threw some balls that weren't as sharp and it was the first day in pads so they can feel the rush a little bit more, which it takes a little bit to get used to."
Pete Carroll on the play of Nick Howell at offensive tackle:
"He's really handling himself, he never did really do well at center and it wasn't a good spot for him. He's a real physical kid, a tough kid at the line of scrimmage, tough at the point of attack. He's just grown up in the system and he's really performed at a rate that gives him a chance to compete for the playing time. Nobody is starting right now. Guys are just rolling through here but he has given himself a chance to."
Pete Carroll on the offensive line:
"This is an athletic group. It's more of an athletic group than probably we have had. (Kristofer) O'Dowd feels really comfortable with what is going on and Mike Reardon is a really sharp kid. They are making their calls and not always are they right but they are communicating well. This is a group that has to come together and we will figure that in time but being verbal and communicating like they are will really help us come together and grow fast."
