Harbaugh on the Seahawks: “It will be a real football fight Thursday night.”

SANTA CLARA – Here’s what Jim Harbaugh said Monday afternoon about the 49ers upcoming Thursday night game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Q: What kind of challenges are there for you guys on the short turnaround?

HARBAUGH: What they are is a short week for both teams. We’ve just got to go. We’ve got to go right away starting today.

Q: Does that give you enough to time for Joe Staley to go through the things he has to go through to be ready for this game?

Q: Will you give Daniel Kilgore reps at right guard to see if he can fill that spot?

HARBAUGH: He gets reps at both center and guard.

Q: Would you stick with the way you ended the game yesterday?

HARBAUGH: I won’t reveal anything like that.

Q: What have been your impressions of the Seahawks so far?

Harbaugh: Good football team, tough football team. It will be it real football fight Thursday night. And we’ll anticipate that, and prepare for it. They’re very good, a very good football team in all phases. They play hard, they play fast, very competitive defensively. Again, really good up front. They set a high pace, set the tone, their defensive line. Linebackers are rangy and athletic, fast, outstanding safeties, corners are playing extremely well. So, ultimate challenge. They’re a good football team.

Q: Did you know much about Russell Wilson before the season started?

Harbaugh: Yeah, we knew a lot about him, yeah.

Q: Are you able to put the Giants game behind you with such a short turnaround with the Seahawks up Thursday?

Harbaugh: I think everybody handles that a little bit differently, putting a loss behind them. Some people do it as soon as they walk out of the locker room. Some take 24 hours, 48 hours, some don’t until we play the next game. It’s just that pace that we have.  In the NFL, what ails you right now is a victory. So everybody treats it a little differently. But right now we have no choice.  We have to get on to Seattle right quick.

Q: How did Seattle get so many sacks against Green Bay?

Harbaugh: It was talent. It was good scheme and talent. Some were just guys beating guys.
