Locker Room Buzz: San Francisco 49ers

By Bill Williamson

SEATTLE -- Observed in the locker room after the San Francisco 49ers' 29-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks:

Humble room: The 49ers took their lumps and gave credit to the Seahawks. There wasn’t any excuse-making. The players knew they were outplayed and they owned up to it.

Kaepernick puts it on himself: San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick had a poor game, and he knew it. "We're not going to win games if I play like that," he said.

Delay not an issue: Most players said the hour-long lightning delay was not a factor. The team had dealt with a 34-minute delay at the Super Bowl, and players said they took a similar approach.
