Seahawks notes and quotes from the NFL Network

Here are some quick notes and quotes from NFL GameDay First and NFL GameDay Morning today concerning the Seattle-San Francisco game today and some other issues related to the Seahawks:

Quotes from NFL GameDay First

- “One of these teams is going to go a bridge too far and get a penalty that is really going to affect this game.” – Brian Billick on the San Francisco 49ers-Seattle Seahawks matchup

- “This is an Anquan Boldin type of game. Anquan Boldin plays and practices mad, he is an angry route-runner. Against the Seattle defensive schemes, he will find a way to get open.” – Brian Billick on San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin

Quotes from NFL GameDay Morning

- “In this game, the Seattle Seahawks are going to put it all on Colin Kaepernick. They’re going to make him beat them with his arm.” – Marshall Faulk on the Seattle Seahawks facing San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick

- “He is a star waiting to happen…He continues to make big play after big play for this team in special teams and as a receiver. Today is going to be his day because they’re going to focus on taking Golden Tate away.” – Marshall Faulk on Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin

- “He has done some amazing things in the short period of time that he’s [been] playing; some big plays, a lot of big plays with his feet. But if he wants to take that next step – and if he wants to win the game today – he has to…read those coverages and make some of those big throws against Seattle’s defense.” – Kurt Warner on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick

- “Colin can’t afford to throw one interception today – he has to be near spot-on perfect. He has to be the guy that gets this offense going and we haven’t seen that here in this building.” – Heath Evans on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has thrown four interceptions in his two career games in Seattle

- “I’m concerned that if one of those two areas doesn’t play up to par – if they give up some points or they can’t run the football – and it gets stuck on Russell Wilson’s shoulders…if he has to stay in the pocket against good defenses, read coverages, make the right plays, see the field, that’s where I worry.” – Kurt Warner on Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport

On Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin:

“My understanding is the Seahawks do expect Percy Harvin to be able to play in the Super Bowl if they make it.”

On the Cleveland Browns head coaching search:

“The Browns are committed to interviewing a candidate in Championship Sunday. One, Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase who at this point does seem to be their top target; the problem is, my understanding is there is no guarantee Gase would even interview. He is in a perfect situation; he’s Peyton Manning’s offensive coordinator, he’s young. It would take something perfect to pull him away from there, although Peyton is a Tennessee alum, Jimmy Haslam, the Browns owner, is a Tennessee alum. Peyton has vouched for Haslam to Gase. The other candidate, Dan Quinn, the Seahawks defensive coordinator. A lot of mutual interest there. If the Seahawks lose, I would expect that interview to happen quickly. His offensive coordinator? Two options: Gary Kubiak and Kyle Shanahan.”
