Charlie Frye said it is incalculable how much the two preseason games and three weeks of practice meant to his development as a QB in this system. Now, because of that, he feels he can step in and be effective. Before that, he may have felt lost. He said he felt lost all of that last year, but things really clicked in the San Diego exhibition.
Seneca Wallace said his body was not ready to play receiver, in part because he had had a tight hamstring in the week leading up to the Niners game. He said he should not have pushed it, but felt the team needed him because of the shortage at WR. When he was playing a position his body did not feel comfortable playing, combined with the tight hammy, he popped his calf. He said it felt like somebody shot him (which is what everybody says, but unless you have been shot how do you know how that feels?). He was wearing a boot and had crutches at his locker.
Patrick Kerney said the 10 am lifting session was completely full because so many players wanted to get right back to work after Sunday's distasteful loss. He said they need to focus on getting the QB to cough up the football if they are going to get to him 8 times. And they should have gotten to him more.
Never miss a local story.
As I wrote earlier, Kelly Jennings said he can see how the refs made the PI call on him. Jennings also said he caught a knee in the ribs from tight end Delaney Walker in the first quarter, sat out a series, got his rib worked on and played the rest of the game.
Logan Payne was cruising around with a brace on and crutches.
Matt Hasselbeck said he should be playing baseball instead of football with his completion percentage. He said he just is not as comfortable with all the news guys running routes, and he doesn't always know who is going to be where. A perfect example of being off was the throw to Courtney Taylor in the end zone that went over Taylor's head -- though at the time I personally thought he should have made more of an effort. He said they just have to keep working until things turn around.
