The following is a transcript of the 4-minute sample of Sean Pamphilon's recording

You don't (expletive) apologize for how we're going to play. You're here for a reason.
You're here because we saw in you...and we hope we picked the right person that won't apologize for competing the way we have to compete. There may be better athletes, but not defensive football players that have to go into war and play we (expletive) play.

A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on victory.

The NFL's a production business don't ever forget it. Where are we at right now? We gotta tie at the top. We've got a lot of guys at the top.

Kill the head and the body will die. Kill the head and the body will die.

We've got to do everything in the world to make sure we kill Frank Gore's head. We want him running sideways. We want his head sideways.

Little 32, we want to knock the (explicative) out of him. He has no idea what he's in for. When he's on the sidelines we've gotta turn that (expletive) over, turn their coaches over, turn the spectators over, go get that (expletive) on the sidelines.

It's a great game, it's a production business.
...

We hit (expletive) (Alex) Smith right there.  Remember me, I've got the first one, I've got the first one. Go lay that (expletive) out.

We're gonna dominate the line of scrimmage and we're gonna kill the (expletive) head. Every single one of you, before you get off the pile, affect the head. Early, affect the head. Continue, touch and hit the head. They're gonna come in. They're gonna be shocked with our contact.  They're gonna be shocked with our speed. They're gonna be shocked with our strip.

Make 'em kick field goals, be the best defense in that stadium. Remember the walk-aways, and remember whatever it takes. Whatever it takes to get that bus, drive back to that airport, and get ready for the next one.

Respect comes from fear. This is how you get respect in this league.

We need to find out in the first two series of the game, the little wide receiver, number 10, about his concussion. We need to (expletive) put a lick on him right now.  He needs to decide. He needs to (expletive) decide.

We need to decide whether (Michael) Crabtree want to be a fake (expletive) primadonna, or he wants to be a tough guy. We need to find it out.  He becomes human when we (expletive) take out that outside ACL.

We need to decide on how many times we can beat Frank Gore's head.

We need to decide how many times we can bullrush and we can (expletive) put Vernon Davis' ankles over the pile.

We need to decide and when they are fearing us, they give us the ball.
Alex Smith, in the pre-season game, when you guys (expletive) avalanched that (expletive) had eyes that big. You all saw 'em.

Another thing we always say in this room is never apologize for the way we compete.  If you're in this room, you understand that. We don't apologize.
