Fred Warner on 49ers vs. Seahawks: ‘This loss is not going to define us’

Nov 11, 2019 at 10:59 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers and their fans are understandably disappointed about the result of the much-hyped Monday-night game against the Seattle Seahawks. The defense came through with several big plays during the game, but the team as a whole ultimately fell short.

The Seahawks won the game 27-24 in the final seconds of overtime in front of a record Levi's Stadium crowd.

For the 49ers players, they will have to shift focus and move on to the next opponent. The team is no longer undefeated after 10 weeks of NFL play, and now sits at 8-1.

Linebacker Fred Warner was asked after the game about the mood of the team after such a hard-fought defeat.

"It sucks," Warner responded. "Everybody's pretty disappointed but, at the same time, this loss is not going to define us. We have an extremely tight-knit group.

"We could take this two ways, but I think as long as we learn from this, keep moving forward — we've got a big game against Arizona coming up, so preparation starts as soon as we get home; make sure we're recovered."

Cornerback Richard Sherman called the loss a "learning experience" and, for the second post-game presser in a row, felt the defense didn't play up to its standards.

"Guys battled," Sherman said. "We had a chance to win it. But we've got to play better on both sides of the ball, all three phases, we've got to play better football. On defense, we've got to give ourselves a chance and get those stops."

Warner was asked about his teammate, linebacker Dre Greenlaw, whose workload increased due to the season-ending injury to Kwon Alexander.

"Dre did outstanding," Warner said. "I thought he had a great game. He was out there communicating, lining up with urgency, making plays. That play where he intercepted the ball was just insane. I'm thinking I was going to have a chance at it because [Russell Wilson] kind of just lobbed it up. But just the execution of that play, and what we were running, I honestly couldn't believe it; it was so surreal.

"He's a great player, very instinctive, and it showed tonight for sure."

Fred Warner's contract named the 49ers' most team-friendly by Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers are big on building through the draft, and that can lead to several team-friendly contracts for some young up-and-coming NFL stars. Now and then, you miss on a high draft pick, though. The Reuben Foster selection in 2017 forced the 49ers to spend big on Kwon Alexander when the team was forced to part ways with the troubled young linebacker. The emergence of another young linebacker may have made up for that, though. San Francisco made Fred Warner a third-round draft pick a year after the Foster selection, and that rookie contract has been named the team's best-value by Bleacher Report's Brent

February's defeat in Super Bowl LIV left a bad taste in the mouths of the San Francisco 49ers. The team had enjoyed a two-month winning streak, including a dominant playoff push, until that point. Then a fourth-quarter collapse paired with Patrick Mahomes doing Patrick Mahomes-type things ended all of that. Now, players are eager to get back on the football field, avenge the loss, and prove that they can overcome a potential Super Bowl hangover. "The one thing I've just noticed in the offseason, from guys whether just talking to them or through our Zoom calls that we had during the OTAs-part of the offseason, just how hungry the guys are," Kittle said Wednesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio

For now, file this one under "rumors" because this report hasn't yet been validated by any other media outlet. That could change, though. A Seattle Seahawks reporter for Sports Illustrated named Corbin Smith states that, per multiple sources, the Seahawks have inquired about New York Jets safety Jamal Adams. He also mentioned the San Francisco 49ers as a team that has "had preliminary discussions" with the Jets about the disgruntled defender who seeks to become the highest-paid safety in football. It isn't uncommon for NFL teams to inquire about players who may be
