HEAD COACH MIKE HOLMGREN
(opening…) On the injury situation, Chuck Darby hurt his knee, he will be scanned tomorrow and I don't want to speculate. But, I don't think it's a little thing. We'll know more tomorrow on what that is all about. To credit New Orleans, they came in and I think played a good game. You can't start the game like we did against anybody and expect to have really good results, I don't think. The touchdown we handed them on the bad snap. The blocked field goal. Our special teams, we have been struggling with that during the season, and if we don't get it fixed, it's not good. That is something we will work hard on and try to fix it, but there are too many bad things happening right now on special teams. We couldn't get pressure on Drew. I thought Drew Brees had a fine football game, and we couldn't get enough pressure on him, in my opinion. Then, Reggie Bush, in the first half in particular, he showed his speed and his quickness, and he showed he's a fine back. He got around us a couple of times, he cut back and had a really good first half. It's too hard to come back, as a rule, when you dig a hole like that for yourself. We are all very disappointed in the outcome of the football game. I don't think the football team laid down, I think they played hard, and I think the Seahawks played hard in the second half. We just couldn't score enough points to get it done.
(On being 3-3…) After six games, our record is what it is. There are logical reasons, honest reasons, why we have lost games. There is only one thing to do, and that is to roll up your sleeves, keep working hard, keep supporting one another, and doing the things we believe in. Then, good things hopefully happen. This is a high character group, and they are very disappointed. It hurts when you lose a football game, when you put that much effort into it, as we do. But, we have a game next week. You can't wallow around in self pity, that's for sure. You have to roll up your sleeves and keep working.
Never miss a local story.
(On the overhead camera crashing down…) I know it almost hit Matt, when it came down. Then they were having problems with it. They moved it, and I don't think they used it any more, I don't know. It was kind of a scary thing.
(On the play of Leonard Weaver…) We'll look at the film, but I thought Leonard did a pretty good job. He did some good things. Where he still has to keep working hard because it's the hardest thing he has to do, is pass protection. That takes some time. New Orleans gave us some different looks tonight, and was successful a couple of times because of that, I think.
(On the injury to Chuck Darby…) Darby has a knee injury, and we will know more about exactly what is wrong tomorrow. It is being scanned, probably tonight.
(On having young players in the lineup…) I can't use that as an excuse. You have young people in the game, and you expect them to play, and if they don't play, you coach them up, and you do the best you can. Everybody in the league has to deal with it. I'm not willing to say that.
(On getting pressure on the quarterback…) We are going to analyze that. We have been able to put pressure on quarterbacks we have played. And tonight, I didn't think he was pressured very much. We'll have to take a look and see how they did that.
(On the fourth down and three play…) We decided to go for it, and I had a pass called, and it was changed to a run, and we didn't quite block it well enough.
(On the status of the running game…) I am always better able to answer that on Mondays, after I see the film. I thought that we did some good things on the running game tonight, but we are still not as consistent as I think we need to be, so we're going to keep working at it.
