Sunday night wrap-up: Lynch leads the way


The lightning made the 49ers sit and wait for an hour.

But the force of nature that cost them a game was Marshawn Lynch.

The Seahawks running back had 135 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns, leading the Seahawks to a 29-3 win over the 49ers.

It was a performance that was little short of amazing, especially considering the Seahawks played more than a half without Pro Bowl left tackle Russell Okung (turf toe).

Lynch showed the familiar power style, but also the ability to adjust quickly and make plays as a receiver as well. And while running the ball isn’t fashionable, the way Lynch pounded the 49ers defense became a philosophical as well as physical statement. As the game wore on, and he wore on the 49ers defense, and his own defensive teammates started popping a little harder.

Last week, he was bottled up on the road against the Panthers, with 43 yards on 17 carries. But against a more accomplished defense, on a bigger stage, he was that much better.

And for a night, at least, the same was true of the Seahawks.

Here are five more things we learned during Sunday Night Football:

1. For a guy who has been harping about hits on quarterbacks in the read option, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh doesn’t mind it when his guys are doing the hitting.

In the second quarter, 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks unloaded on Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, while Wilson was still in the handing-off posture.

Harbaugh’s just trying to protect Colin Kaepernick by doing a little agenda-setting, at the risk of being a hypocrite.

But the hits these quarterbacks are taking will be a cumulative issue, hurting more as the season progresses.

2. Speaking of those young quarterbacks: At halftime, Kaepernick and Wilson had combined to complete eight passes for 94 yards, and each had thrown an interception.

Kaepernick’s 21.7 rating looked bad, but next to Wilson’s 7.5 in the first half, it looked positively sharp.

There’s a temptation in the media to ordain the newest shiny thing we see the greatest thing ever.

But the hyperbole heaped upon the young passers in this league can be stifling, and it’s worth remembering how young these two are (it was Kaepernick’s ninth regular season start, Wilson’s 18th), and how early in their development as passers they actually are.

3. Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett didn’t get much attention this offseason, but could prove to be a huge addition as the season progresses.

The Buccaneers didn’t make much if any effort to keep him after a 9.0-sack season last year, and the Seahawks also brought in former Lions pass-rusher Cliff Avril, making Bennett easy to overlook.

But Bennett has a versatility to rush from inside, and when the Seahawks are fully staffed (with Chris Clemons healthy and Bruce Irvin off suspension), they will be able to put plenty of speed on the line on passing downs.

4. It was easy to make fun of the Ravens a week ago, when Anquan Boldin was catching everything in sight.

This week, he looked a little less worth that $6 million the 49ers are paying him, after acquiring him in a salary dump/trade.

The Seahawks were able to keep the veteran receiver from being a factor, and that’s going to happen with a guy about to turn 33.

But on a night when Kaepernick was struggling to find anything, he didn’t find Boldin until the game was more than 50 minutes old.

5. As dominant as the Seahawks looked Sunday night/Monday morning, they could get better.

Remember, they’re playing without cornerback Brandon Browner and wide receiver Percy Harvin, two guys who could possibly make a bit of a difference down the road.

You get the sense they’d be all right without them next week against the Jaguars.

    49er fan here, keeping it real. The Seahawks “Came with some knuckles!”. Sometimes you need to get punched in the nose. The Seahawks right now are the better team in the NFC west and we got ALOT of work to do. They completely owned us in every facet of the game tonight. Physically and mentally. Stupid penalties, Facemask sacks, and 41 yard PI calls. Our only highlight was a blocked punt that we got because we got an assist from the 12th man. Our 200 yard receiver last week was blanketed all game. Our O-Line was manhandled. We couldn’t shed blocks to stop Lynch. We deserved to lose. The one bright spot is that it is week 2 and there is still a ton of football left to be played. We meet again in week 14 and by then both teams will be different teams both for good and bad. Hopefully we can give Seattle the same choice in our house that they gave us in theirs, with or without Vaseline. Any other fan who says or thinks otherwise, tries to cry and complain about “non calls” and referee’s, and be closed minded or in denial is either related to Logicalvoice or Rush Limbaugh.

    Game day bucket go boom!

    I wish the niners would have had a better gameplan than intimidation.

  4. dannyreneau says: Sep 16, 2013 12:43 AM

    That is back to back blow outs. SO if the niners fans would kindly zip it until we meet you at Candlestick in December that would be great.


  5. blacknole08 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:44 AM

    49ers got STOMPED! No one is going into Seattle and winning this season.

  6. joey49er says: Sep 16, 2013 12:44 AM

    Good game guys. See us hope in the playoffs no excuses here.

  7. osiris33 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:44 AM

    Complete physical dominance by the Seahawks. Time to shave an eyebrow Colin.

  8. copack20 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:44 AM

    The Fortywhiners got whipped, and wouldn’t even shake hands. Classless, and starts with the head coach.

  9. bert1913 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:45 AM

    when the seahawks play at sf we’ll be even stronger. (harvin, browner, clemons and irvine)

  10. shayeezy says: Sep 16, 2013 12:45 AM

    and that’s why you don’t crown a guy after less than one full season.

  11. mf1849 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:45 AM

    Where are my forty whiners brethren. So much smash talk early on. Go HAWKS!

  12. greej1938l says: Sep 16, 2013 12:45 AM

    49ers look like poopy. Wonder what harbaby will complain about this time!

  13. spytdi says: Sep 16, 2013 12:45 AM

    Love it!

  14. bonecrushinghits says: Sep 16, 2013 12:45 AM

    Sorry Niners fans, Your QB isn’t quite the hall of fame lock you’ve been told he is. Looked much like the overrated QB that he really is tonight. Thanks for playing!

  15. jrmbadger says: Sep 16, 2013 12:45 AM

    Maybe HarBAWL should have worried more about next week’s opponent and worried less about slandering last week’s opponent.

    Lots of personal foul calls on the 49ers as well – a reflection of their hot-head coach.

  16. jerjaxon says: Sep 16, 2013 12:45 AM

    looks like we win

  17. thegreatgabbert says: Sep 16, 2013 12:46 AM

    Kaepernick officially finished with a worse game than Gabbert last week. Tattoo the Midget was on his way to the same, but the refs intervened on his behalf once again to make him seem more than he is.

  18. mrpolarbear99 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:46 AM

    A sad, pathetic show from the 49ers. Refs looked like they were really enjoying themselves out there.

  19. scmems07 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:46 AM

    30% Seattle defense-70% kaep severely overrated.

  20. bucrightoff says: Sep 16, 2013 12:47 AM

    Seahawks D is straight up nasty.

  21. slugbaitspace says: Sep 16, 2013 12:48 AM

    Even if they were to plant a whistleblower in the stands, the 49ers wouldn’t be able to beat the ‘hawks in the CLink.

    Oh, wait…

  22. seatownballers says: Sep 16, 2013 12:48 AM

    Where ya at boss haters?

    Hawks won by 26! Your team is overrated! 4 injuries to your starters is gonna hurt down the stretch! Only scoring 3 isn’t gonna win the division clowns.

    I only posted one comment all week,,
    ‘May the best team win’- was all
    And in the end that happened

  23. msclemons67 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:48 AM

    Seattle can place this game in their empty trophy case.

  24. ninersince81 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:48 AM

    I truly hate that stadium!!! Well seahawks own us on that field…good old fashioned butt kicking. ..hats off to Seattle no excuses got a beat down…niners go home and regroup…

  25. ratsfoiledagain says: Sep 16, 2013 12:49 AM

    One eyebrow Kaep…..

  26. bftigers724 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:49 AM

    I figured Kaepernick would show his true colors soon enough.

    Maybe he should have had that extra glass of water tonight before the game that his friend the First Lady told everyone to drink for some energy?

  27. thebirdofprey says: Sep 16, 2013 12:50 AM

    Now that was an excellent defensive win and just a glimpse of what Seattle can do. Avril/Bennett were excellent pick ups, its going to be nasty when we get Clem/Irvin on the field as well. Again 49ers WR/TE can not beat our secondary. Special teams I thought maybe they were equal but we had huge advantage. Boldin’s stat line was 1 catch for 7 yards? Sherman took him out of the game. Only negative of the game is our Pro Bowl LT is hurt. Okung heal up and get ready for week 4. Let me do that 49er trash talkers headcount again.

  28. scmems07 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:51 AM

    Listening to “analysts”, once again, Seattle d wins the game against an overrated qb, Wilson gets the credit. Unbelievable

  29. oddte says: Sep 16, 2013 12:54 AM

    Was that enough knuckles for you, Jim?

  30. braceyourselffor12 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:54 AM

    Yeah no excuses, our ass was cheaper than a Tiajuana hooker tonight. Rather than conjure some obscure reasoning as to why we played like the Jaguars, I will admit we got beat in obvious fashion.

    I HOPE THIS SINKS IN INTO EVERY NINER FAITHFUL. The rivalry between us and the Cowboys is DEAD, the rivalry between us and the Packers is DEAD.

    We have a new NEMESIS.

    It is colored in navy blue and seizure inducing neon green.

    We will undoubtedly meet up again without the benefit of your loud stadium.

    So soak it up Seekock fans, you won’t be winning the division nor the Conference nor the League.

    As you are cursed as being perpetual over achievers who treat this match up as your Super Bowl.

    Thumbs down you worthless hacks.

    GO NINERS!!!!!

  31. vikescry1 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:55 AM

    I said it on friday and I’ll say it again, the whiners were to focused on complaining about a win against the packers and they were gonna lose this game. Niners got lucky in week one and forgot their knuckles this week!

  32. atwatercrushesokoye says: Sep 16, 2013 12:55 AM

    One thing I wish would have been covered in the wrap up is why does Lynch wear a balaclava during a warm weather game?

  33. kevjones75 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:55 AM

    Hey Niners, next week, spend a little more time focusing on your opponent and a little less time bragging about Green Bay. Also, I loved seeing Granny Harbaugh pouting on the sidelines most of the game. This team is a reflection of their coach and their lack of discipline and self control will continue to haunt them in the future.

  34. doublezero74 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:55 AM

    At home that team is formidable.on the road not so much. Cheerleader/head coach Pete carrol is a nice guy but he’s an ass clown on the sidelines

  35. oaktown49er says: Sep 16, 2013 12:56 AM

    Seattle got it done, they are a great football team. They own the 49ers at home. I am a die hard Niner fan but I didn’t see this one going well. No worries, lots of football left to play.

  36. wilsonwillbreaku says: Sep 16, 2013 12:56 AM

    Niners got what they asked for.

  37. goldrush4949 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:57 AM

    The only team that has consistently given Harbaugh’s 49ers fits has been the Seahawks. From top to bottom the roster is just built to beat the Niners at their own game.

    Remember She-hawks fans, they still have to go Candlestick. They don’t hand out division championships after Week 2.

  38. franklinandbashandflorio says: Sep 16, 2013 12:57 AM

    I had 49ers 28-24. Looked like Bizarro World 49ers out there. Good game Seahawks and I’m looking forward to December.

  39. dukeearl says: Sep 16, 2013 12:58 AM

    Glad to have this one over with.
    This game was one that I was concerned that the Seahawks might lose.

    I can’t give it to much to the Seattle offense though… kudos should go to the defense.

    49er offense is still a machine, though somewhat banged up after tonight. Hopefully both teams are at full strength for the battle the next meeting in December.

  40. kuranda84 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:58 AM

    Sherman locked up Boldin ALL NIGHT! Agree with it or not, right now Sherman is the best corner in the league.

  41. beastmode5150 says: Sep 16, 2013 12:58 AM

    I would love to say “good game niners” but man, that was yet another beat down. Boldin 1 catch, same as Sherman. Vernon taps out for second straight year, a concussed player for second straight year. Kap had all bit 13 of SF’s yards. OWNED.

  42. bigbaldpapahawk says: Sep 16, 2013 1:01 AM

    Hats off to the niners. It was an absolute brawl in the first half. Two rough defenses were slugging it out.

    Grats to my Seahawks for staying with the game and finishing it out.

    Best in the West.


  43. yupseahawksfan says: Sep 16, 2013 1:03 AM

    pretty bad officiating for both sides. see ya’ll at candlestick.

  44. gottahavemyfootball says: Sep 16, 2013 1:05 AM

    No question about it, the Seahawks are legit. But dear lord let’s not crown them already just like everyone was doing for the Niners last week. It’s no coincidence that the Hawks a couple years ago (only losing team ever to make the playoffs) beat a very good Saints team in the playoffs while playing at home. Good for the twelfth man, but the advantage they get playing at that stadium is absurd.

  45. jdubb84 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:06 AM

    The bigger story is frank gore didn’t have crap, Boldin had 1 catch. Kap had 3 picks

  46. cliffordc05 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:07 AM

    They were also playing without Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin on defense.

  47. seahawksteven777 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:08 AM

    A Beatdown in Seatown! Gotta love it. Go Hawks!

  48. slbasegame257 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:09 AM

    You know there is all this hype about the great Hawks-Niners rivalry, but I don’t know. Is it really a rivalry if one team just beats the tar out of the other team everytime? I mean the 49ers aren’t very competitive. Maybe the rams or cards will be more of a challenge. 29-3, 42-13. GO HAWKS….PS I can’t believe that 49ers fans ACTUALLY think that Kaepernick is better than Wilson! HA

  49. ronaldjones says: Sep 16, 2013 1:09 AM

    3.5 yards per carry is not “little short of amazing”

  50. thefox61 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:10 AM

    Good Game 9ers Good Game

  51. djcrabby8 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:16 AM

    Where is Anthony Dixon?

  52. mikekowa says: Sep 16, 2013 1:16 AM

    There is nothing more glorious than watching the 49ers get absolutely destroyed in every aspect of the game.

    It is clear who the more dominant team is.


  53. pacificnw7722 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:17 AM

    The “Legion of Boom” secondary had three interceptions — one each for Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor.

    Nuff said…………

  54. mrwalterisgod says: Sep 16, 2013 1:18 AM

    I can’t wait to hear what excuses Jim Harbaugh will come up with.

    Go Hawks.

  55. peddealer says: Sep 16, 2013 1:23 AM

    1st Comment!

  56. gbpbacker84 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:27 AM

    Wonder if Harbaugh told Aldon Smith to come with knuckles next time after the slap to the helmet that destroyed the niners chances of forcing a punt on 3rd and 27. Maybe Harbaugh should stop worrying about calling out other teams’ players such as Clay Matthews, and start worrying about addressing his own team’s lack of discipline.

  57. seahawkfan4evr says: Sep 16, 2013 1:30 AM

    Where ya at niners fans

  58. ninerfan94954 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:32 AM

    Outplayed, outcoached and a host of stupid penalties to boot. Better be ready for Indianapolis.

  59. crowgora says: Sep 16, 2013 1:34 AM

    Clearly Lynch is a dirty player, beating on those poor defenders.

  60. dstep24 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:40 AM

    Cue the Niner excuses….

  61. fwbrodie says: Sep 16, 2013 1:40 AM

    Beat down.

  62. 12thmanseattle says: Sep 16, 2013 1:42 AM

    This is OUR year. This is a team we can be proud of and watch them roll through the competition. Lets go Seahawks!!! We deserve this

  63. softhelmet says: Sep 16, 2013 1:43 AM

    I know they are happy in Seattle, but boy that was a boring game. A 60 min delay for all of that…

    They should have interviewed Sherman during the stoppage! Hey Richard, tell us why you are better than everyone else, btw, you only have 60 mins to talk…

  64. norcalmafia says: Sep 16, 2013 1:47 AM

    Everyone knows me..I talk tons of crap..Seattle is still the lamest city in America..Your stadium design still gives them the hest advantage in the NFL..Your team is still lame and one of the most irrelevent teams in all of sports..

    AFTER that the Seahawks own the 49ers..We got our a××es kicked ..Anyone with a brain knows the 49ers have been the best team in the NFL the past two years b7t we blew it and now our window has jammed shut…Harbaugh is getting karma right back in his face and Kap is good at winning useless games..Good game Seattle you guys kicked our butts..Niners are on the way out..See ya Haurbaugh and your fake QB..Rebuild….

  65. pushn50 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:55 AM

    OMG, the whiners got owned, OWNED in every phase of the game tonight! Kaepernick looked like a chump out there, turning the ball over multiple times. It’s clear who the REAL team in the NFC West is this year!

    Can’t wait to hear Harwah whine about the game this weak! He and the 40 whiners were so busy reveling in their win last week they forgot to shut their mouths and focus on THIS week’s game. Ack, it wouldn’t have mattered, nothing they could’ve done to stop this beast known as Seattle! Sherman OWNED the whiners tonight!

  66. seattlelgt says: Sep 16, 2013 1:59 AM


    Where are all of the Whiner fans that talked ish all week?

  67. trollhammer20 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:01 AM

    No Browner, no Irvin, no Clemons, and no Jason Hill.

    This defense is allowing five points per game, and all of these guys will be back on the field in the next four weeks.

  68. fumblenuts says: Sep 16, 2013 2:01 AM

    Seattle has outscored the 49ers 71-16 over their last two meetings.

    Cry whiners cry!

  69. footballace says: Sep 16, 2013 2:01 AM

    Here are my thoughts from the game:

    This is only one game.
    If the Seahawks gets home field advantage in the playoffs, you can pencil them to represent the NFC in the Superbowl.
    The 49ers need a #2 receiver in the worst way.
    Richard Sherman is the best corner in the NFL. That was a rough game to watch if you are a Sherman hater
    The 49ers need to get back to the ground and pound game.

  70. raqaiw says: Sep 16, 2013 2:21 AM

    It was easy to make fun of the Ravens a week ago, when Anquan Boldin was catching everything in sight.

    This week, he looked a little less worth that $6 million the 49ers are paying him, after acquiring him in a salary dump/trade.

    The Seahawks were able to keep the veteran receiver from being a factor, and that’s going to happen with a guy about to turn 33.

    But on a night when Kaepernick was struggling to find anything, he didn’t find Boldin until the game was more than 50 minutes old.
    Exactly. Meanwhile the money saved on moving Boldin has turned into a defense that has registered 8 sacks in 2 games. The secondary for the Ravens still needs sorting out, but adding Dumervil,Canty,and Smith to the front 7 has been huge for the Raven’s pass rush. Always a good move to get rid of a guy a year early vice a year late.

  71. bugorfeature says: Sep 16, 2013 2:38 AM

    Weird game. First half unforced error by SF gave Seattle two points. Then Seattle got a fumble that lead to a field goal. Both defenses were tough and both offenses sucked.

    And the second half Seattles’s offense showed SF’s defense couldn’t stop them.

  72. dirtysouthniner says: Sep 16, 2013 2:49 AM

    Great win hawks! You guys beat the crap out of us!! Congrates on a dominating second half and win!! See u in Frisco

  73. raideralex says: Sep 16, 2013 3:12 AM

    If you’re going to pick a game to poke holes in the talents of two young passers and a $6 million FA receiver…

    the game with the 1-hour rain delay and wet conditions throughout is probably not the ideal game.

  74. footballfan71 says: Sep 16, 2013 3:18 AM

    Wow. All those 49er fans who repeatedly said the Hawks were going to get a beat down sure are quiet. Where is all that bravado now?

    So when will Kaep shave off that brow?

  75. mackcarrington says: Sep 16, 2013 4:58 AM

    Kaepernick need to not only shave an eyebrow, but he should shave every single bit of hair off his entire body.

  76. swaggyy says: Sep 16, 2013 5:46 AM

    The Seahawks is who the 49ers wish they could be
    Because they are better on offense and D
    You can see that so clearly
    If you cant then check the box score
    29 to 3

  77. jimmysee says: Sep 16, 2013 6:45 AM

    Seahawks = Formidable!

  78. greyhawk9 says: Sep 16, 2013 7:16 AM

    So is Kaepernick still qb Jesus Jaws??
    San Francisco looked terrible last night while getting Lynched.

  79. mavajo says: Sep 16, 2013 7:21 AM

    Looks like the 49ers shouldn’t have spent so much time worrying about Clay Matthews.

    It’s amazing how quickly the NFC West became so hate-able. They used to be that division we all kind of pitied and pulled for, because they were just so laughably bad. They have a couple good years, and now they’re that annoying former fat chick that lost 80 pounds and won’t shut up about it.

    I can’t wait until they’re fat again. I’ll give it two years. The 49ers are already on the decline, and Seattle won’t be far behind.

  80. mikeinfected says: Sep 16, 2013 7:40 AM

    7. Wow Seahawks wow like totally roolz. And is best at everything. Ever. And shizz. Ya boo you Niners sucks.

    Oh dear lord might be time to haul in the reins a little Mike…or ask Pete Carroll to write under his own name.

    This is glorious though…

    “the way Lynch pounded the 49ers defense became a philosophical as well as [a] physical statement”

    ho ho.

  81. hscorpio says: Sep 16, 2013 7:55 AM

    Maybe the 49ers spent a little too much time looking back and the last game and not enough time looking forward to the next one. With the way they were whining all week about Clay Matthews, this one was not hard to see coming against a quality opponent on their home field.

  82. wkdblc52 says: Sep 16, 2013 8:03 AM

    Way to go Hawks, way to make Mike Florio look like the ignorant idiot he really is in picking against you guys. All the talk centered around that stringbean QB with all the tats all stinking week and you so called experts bought into his hype from the GB game. All it took was a pheonomial defense that literally sent ol’ stringbean back to Frisco with his tail tween his legs. HaHaHa

    Rejoice Seahawk fans !!

  83. bordner says: Sep 16, 2013 8:53 AM

    I can’t stand the Niners and I can barely stand the Seahawks, but it’s obvious where the balance of power lies in the NFC West after last night’s game. The Seahawks own the Niners. Kaepernick looked like he was playing scared last night, especially in the second half.

  84. dhardy8207 says: Sep 16, 2013 8:54 AM

    Well Kaepernick is going to look alittle strange missing one eye brow for a few weeks…

    If I remember correctly the loser’s QB has to shave one brow… Good thing he’s already easy on the eyes….

  85. hrmlss says: Sep 16, 2013 10:17 AM

    Spent all week whining about the Packer game and didn’t prepare for this game. probably end up 4-12.

  86. boscoesworld says: Sep 16, 2013 10:24 AM

    The Miner Forty WHINER and his QB Clementine!!! Harbaugh is a stooge. Everyone knows you don’t bring knuckles to the helmet. You break your hand!

  87. scmems07 says: Sep 16, 2013 10:40 AM

    congrats seattle, you won at home, as usual, to bad the superbowl is played in NY or you might have an actual shot at winning it all.

    might want to work on that offense a little bit though, has looked pretty pedestrian these last two weeks.

    I can’t wait until we are healthy, people calling out our offense. Pro Bowl Left Tackle Okung went down in the 1st quarter. After that A. Smith ran through McQuistan for a sack easy. Seattle played conservative run offense and but moved the ball very well against solid front 7. I see a few 49er fans here and that’s commendable but talk the next game talk we will have our full defensive pass rushers and Percy Harvin. I said it for weeks, its just a tough match up for 49ers when they play us. The reality is NFC West teams are going to all give each other tough games this year. Yesterday was about the only cake walk 🙂

    You have to wonder what the Ravens feel like after seeing SF so dominated.

    The Ravens are back, waaaaaay back.

    I was expecting the niners to be at least competitive…maybe a three point game, but this was an old fashioned butt whipping. sad but true.

    Leaving the stadium last night, there were a group of tipsy 49er fans loudly and lamely blustering on about how their team has won so many Super Bowls. The ocean of Seahawks fans around them just looked on with pity and eye rolls knowing that blanketing oneself in with the distant past is a coping mechanism to protect one’s psyche from the truth of being ass-whooped in the present.

    You asked us to come with knuckles – we obliged. Go Hawks!

    Seagulls expose Kaepernick as the quarterback fraud he is.

    The only team that has consistently given Harbaugh’s 49ers fits has been the Seahawks. From top to bottom the roster is just built to beat the Niners at their own game.

    Remember She-hawks fans, they still have to go Candlestick. They don’t hand out division championships after Week 2.

    last time the two met in your stadium the game could have easily gone the other way. Can’t say that about either of the last 2 played in our stadium.

    Wilson is completely pedestrian at best. Lunch carries. The team and when he goes to jail for his DUi the she hawks are up the proverbial creek. Wilson shows his true colors and the squalks go 0-fer.

    congrats seattle, you won at home, as usual, to bad the superbowl is played in NY or you might have an actual shot at winning it all.

    They did score 29 points………..

    when the seahawks lose in san fran those are very close games, when the niners lose in seattle they get their arses handed to them

    So bracey, your stadium will carry a 26 point turnaround? Interesting. You realize it’s not loud right?

    @foreskinsfolife Your trolling would be more impressive if your team didn’t have a gimp at quarterback and a head case safety looking at a suspension. As far as Wilson goes, who’s Lunch is he carrying?

    Appreciate the handful of Whiner fans who are taking this beat-down with class. SF is a great team with a history to be envied, and I must give proper kudos to the Whiner D last night for covering our receivers so well and making Wilson struggle to find anyone to throw to.

    THIS WAS A GREAT GAME. Any fan who thinks this game was “boring” probably also thinks the Jaguars new helmet design is awesome. Perhaps the best two defenses in the NFL going toe-to-toe, the loudest crowd in the history of the game, lightning strikes overhead, scrambling QB’s, 6 turnovers, 3 Lynch TD’s, a safety, several exciting long runs and deep catches, hard hits, guys limping off the field… and all some of you can whine about is a lack of offense in the first half?

    I realize to a Whiner fan trying to avoid suicidal thoughts that translating depressing to “boring” is probably therapeutic, but just because your Gonzo-looking QB was robbed of his weekly chance to make out with his own biceps doesn’t mean you get to negate all of the other very exciting plays that occurred last night as “boring.”

    Football isn’t all about touchdowns. It’s an extremely COMPLEX sport, a major part of which is designing a game plan specific to each week’s opponent. SF has an AWESOME secondary — not as awesome as the Legion of Boom, but awesome just the same. It would not behoove the Hawks to try and rack up passing yards against the Whiners because there are other areas of their D to exploit, such as their run defense. So we pound and pound and pound on their D with runs by Lynch and hard hitting blocks by our O, and as you all saw, we wore their butts down midway through Q3, and began to put real points on the board.

    Conversely, the Whiners had NO gameplan to exploit OUR weaker areas. They assumed Gonzo’s bullet velocity throws would overcome the top secondary in the NFL, but with only two favorite targets, both Boldin and Davis were easily covered and neutralized, forcing Gonzo to default to the only real running threat he had: himself. Gore was useless against our awesome D-line and LB’s, but Gonzo is quick and difficult to catch. But not any better than last year when we also were able to contain his running threat.

    Our D is now clearly the best in the NFL, and would have lasted well into any OT periods from how they were looking. One of the most UNDERRATED attributes of players is ENDURANCE. We have it; they don’t. We plan around that. They did not. We now get to gloat a bit, and Gonzo can go back to SF and kiss his shiny, tattooed guns while he has a good cry.

    GO HAWKS!!

    The Seahawks did exactly what they had to do on Sunday night, they won at home, no more no less, they still need to win games on the road, they strugled against a bad Carolina team last week, so until they beat some solid team on the road, the jury is still out.

  101. rasta028 says: Sep 17, 2013 11:54 AM

    If Seattle goes into Houston on week 4 and wins then I’ll be convinced they’re for real, until then……Promises Promises
