Locker Room Buzz: Seattle Seahawks

ST. LOUIS -- Observed in the locker room after the Seattle Seahawks' 14-9 victory over the St. Louis Rams:

Tate apology: Wide receiver Golden Tate apologized to his teammates for his showboat taunting penalty on his 80-yard touchdown catch. "It won’t happen again," Tate said. "It’s a lesson learned."

Carroll on the offensive line: “We had a million problems up there,” coach Pete Carroll said on the line giving up seven sacks. “We tried a lot of different things to fix it, but nothing worked. We have a lot of work to do.”

Goal-line stand talk: "Bend but not break,” said cornerback Richard Sherman, on keeping the Rams out of the end zone when St. Louis had a first-and-goal at the 6 with 31 second to go, and fourth-and-goal at the 1 on the final play. "That’s what we do. We make the big plays when we have to make them.”
