(On the middle linebackers on the Seattle Seahawks including Lofa Tatupu)
"It's a very interesting week, the two times we play him a year. You know that he's going to bring a lot of energy. He's a guy who is always around the ball and he's been in the Pro Bowl ever since he's been in the NFL, so he's definitely an impact player. He's the guy who gets the defense going."
(On looking forward to playing the Seahawks)
"We haven't beaten Seattle in a while around here. We want to really re-emerge as someone competing in the division and hopefully to win the division. You have to beat off last year's defending champion and they have won it the last four years. They have had an off year and they had a lot of injuries. This is a game where both teams have to compete to show that they are trying to move things in the right direction for next year."
(On the game not being sold out)
"I didn't know that. Not having the game sold out is a disappointment, but you still have to go out there and play. Everyone is still being evaluated from their assignment execution to how they are playing. I think everyone that will suit up on Sunday has something to prove. You hate that it's not sold out but it's not going to make guys play any harder."
