Arizona Cardinals postgame quotes: 'If you don’t block, catch, tackle, kick, we didn’t do any of the four.' | Seahawks Blog | Seattle Times
“It’s very simple. If you don’t block, catch, tackle, kick, we didn’t do any of the four. The kickers were rookies. We had ten men on the punt that got blocked. That turned the whole game around. It was strictly a guy who didn’t go out there. We as coaches didn’t see and find it in time. That was huge because our defense had set the momentum for the second half.

Seahawks player quotes: 'It’s a special win because we did it together' – Earl Thomas | Seahawks Blog | Seattle Times
“We knew we had to battle. They are a great defense, and they had a lot of great players on that side of the ball, and I thought we were relentless today. It was a championship football type game and we were able to go 1 and 0 in our stadium and we were able to battle it out and make some bigtime plays on offense and then our defense looked outstanding today.”

Seahawks 19, Cardinals 3: First impressions | Seahawks Blog | Seattle Times
Jerry Brewer: For all the pressure that the aggressive, blitzing Arizona defense generated on Sunday, the Seahawks were still the best defense on the field. It was a classic performance by Seattle, hounding Drew Stanton and taking care of an Arizona run game that ranks last in the NFL in yards per carry. Defensive end Cliff Avril (two sacks) played his best game of the season. Middle linebacker Bobby Wagner’s return was a major difference. Arizona managed just 204 total yards and averaged 4.2 yards per play.
