(on the Seattle Seahawks and the challenges they produce)
(Chris) Carson runs very hard. It looks like their defense played really well yesterday. (Tyler) Lockett continues to be one of the best deep ball receivers that I can remember for his stature. He is a small guy that plays the deep ball extremely well. Obviously, (DK) Metcalf and (Gerald) Everett, Russell Wilson is just composed. It will be a huge challenge to go out and handle that road environment and we are going to have to start here really quickly.
(on the challenges the Seahawks defense presents)
They are good on all levels, they are multiple in their scheme, the front – they play a lot of guys up front, they play hard. You know (Bobby) Wagner and (Jamal) Adams are solid up the middle, leaders of their defense. The inside guys are big, they are stout, they are hard to move. (Indianapolis) tried to move them a couple times in short-yardage situations and it was difficult. They play hard, they are active on the edge and really disruptive.
(on Seahawks safety Jamal Adams and the type of stresses he puts on the offense)
He is all over the place. Jamal (Adams) has done that for a long time. He is a good, instinctive player, excellent blitzer, can cover, tackle, and find the football. I think just the instincts that he plays with allows them to put him on a lot of different people.
(on utilizing the silent count)
We may fall off the bike a few times this week, but we are going to have to practice it and we are going to have to need it, we are going to need it early. It is something that we will have to prepare for and be able to function and operate and not use that as an excuse.
(on if preparing for Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is the same as preparing for Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson)
Every week is different. Kyler (Murray) is faster than Russell (Wilson). Russell (Wilson) does a great job of avoiding the rush and sliding. Third-and-nine, (Indianapolis) was coming with pressure and there was a crease in the B gap, and he took it. He has an excellent feel for being able to pump fake and get guys off their feet, but still keep his eyes downfield. He is excellent in the boot game, they ran a number of those that was successful last week as well.
(on the problems that Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf presents)
There is just a size and strength and speed element that he has. You got a big man that runs fast and is strong. I think if you get off balance, he has the ability to knock you by and use his strength and also some of his runs after the catch. There are a lot of problems, a lot of issues. (Tyler) Lockett is so in tune with the quarterback and their ability to hit plays down the field routinely, over and over again. Every game it seems like there is an amazing catch in the endzone or down the field or close to the sidelines that is really impressive.
