There was only one turnover on Sunday afternoon, and it went to the man who very likely wanted it the most.
“The scene and the situation,” said Wright, who has ‘415’ tattooed across his chest, “couldn’t have been any better.”
Wright’s first pick in the red and gold is the 15th of his career.
There was a chance he wouldn’t have even been in the game when Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson heaved a deep ball with 21 seconds left. Wright left the game in the third quarter with a potential head injury; he was struck in the helmet by an opponent’s knee.
“He was talking well right when we first got out there,” Jim Harbaugh said of the training staff, which initially pegged Wright’s return as ‘questionable.’
Wright was ready to go.
“It was important for us to be mentally and tough physically throughout this whole game,” Wright said. “That’s what it takes to beat a team like Seattle.
“Throughout the course of the game you can get dinged up a little bit, get shaken up, you fight through it and continue to build your role and help the team out. That’s all I was trying to do.”
