The top 10 Seahawks quotes of the season:

“I give zero (expletives) about any 0-2 stat. I don’t care about that (expletive).”

—Defensive end Cliff Avril, on the difficulty of 0-2 teams making the playoffs

“I’m not the fastest, the strongest, the most athletic, the tallest. But in order for me to be good at what I do, I have to focus on my craft so much that it alleviates those other things. I can’t have personal relationships like other people do. I can’t spend time on that.”

— Receiver Doug Baldwin before the season, on the conflict between football and his personal life

“I’ve waited all my life for this.”

— Braeden Jackson, the 9-year-old son of Seahawks running back Fred Jackson, who made the playoffs for the first time in his 10th season

“When you go to the Super Bowl twice, anything less than getting back to the championship is a waste of time. If we are going to be here, let’s go to the dance, you know what I mean? If not, then we should just all stay home. So that’s kind of my mind-set. If we are going to do this, let’s do it all the way. Let’s not half-hearted do it. Let’s go out here and whoop people’s asses and go home and watch TV, watch ‘Walking Dead.’”

— Defensive lineman Michael Bennett, on the team’s goal for the season

“That forced fumble at the end, we always strive to play to the end, play to the whistle. I saw a lot of brown of the ball. I attacked it, punished it and made a big play at the end.”

— Strong safety Kam Chancellor, after forcing Calvin Johnson to fumble to decide the Detroit game

“To have that many people cheer for you and care about you and pray for you, it’s something further than my dreams could reach. I’m forever in debt for that. It’s one of the best days of my life.”

— Receiver Ricardo Lockette, on his return to CenturyLink Field for the first time since his season-ending injury

“I’d say it’s like fine dining. We know what we do, and we’re the best at what we do.”

— Linebackers coach Michael Barrow, on Seattle’s defensive philosophy

“That’s gangsta.”

— Running back Marshawn Lynch, when told that a San Jose man had lost 170 pounds after being inspired by Lynch’s famous quote, “I’m just ‘bout that action, boss”

“I have not. I see a concussion movie every Sunday. For free. Don’t need to go to the theater.”

— Cornerback Richard Sherman, when asked if he had seen the movie “Concussion”

“Marshawn came up to me and said, ‘Look, youngin’, I’m going to pass you the torch for the day, you know what to do.’ That’s all I did. I just waited on my number to get called, and (I went) out there and served as best as I could for the team.’’

— Running back Thomas Rawls after rushing for 209 yards against the 49ers with Marshawn Lynch out because of an abdominal injury
