Frank Gore says Wagner is really fast, and a few other notes

So, you’d hardly know the Seahawks and 49ers are fierce rivals from all we heard during media sessions today.

Mostly, there were lots of bon mots thrown back and forth, one in rather humorous — if not completely printable — fashion from 49ers running back Frank Gore, who was the opposing player who spoke to the Seattle media today.

Talking about Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner, Gore said “No. 54 Bobby, man, he’s (expletive) fast as (expletive) man.”

Asked later about what Gore said Wagner responded: “It’s a great compliment coming from a great player. I love playing against him. Every time I’ve played against him it’s a fun, fun matchup. He’s a great running back. He’s very, very good. Shifty guy. So I’m looking forward to playing against him.”

Gore said despite San Francisco’s record and two-game losing streak, the team retains hope.

“We’re hoping we go up there and do whatever it takes to get a win and still have a shot at the playoffs, you know?” Gore said.

As for the Seahawks, not a ton of news from coach Pete Carroll’s press conference today.

Carroll said C Max Unger will practice today but on a limited basis. TE Cooper Helfet will practice today and sounds like he has a chance to play.

Carroll reiterated that DL Demarcus Dobbs has a severe ankle sprain, and while there ¬†was no move announced yet with Dobbs don’t be surprised if there is a move made to replace his spot on the roster.

Asked about the status of Bryan Walters and the return situation, Carroll said “you’ll have to wait and see.” So, we’ll wait and see on that one.

Here’s some video of what Wagner said, and below that some video of Carroll:
