49ers beat Seahawks in NFC West grudge match

AP

For the last week, the entire NFL world has hailed the Seattle Seahawks as the best team in football. Today the San Francisco 49ers reminded everyone that there’s still a whole lot of football to play.

In a tough, physical battle between these two NFC West rivals, the 49ers won 19-17 and made a big statement that they’re still Super Bowl contenders, even if the Seahawks remain atop the division.

San Francisco running back Frank Gore had a big day that was topped with a 51-yard run late in the fourth quarter, which helped set up the game-winning field goal in the final minute. That field goal made Phil Dawson a perfect 4-for-4 on the day.

The 49ers’ defense did a good job of keeping Marshawn Lynch in check, and although Russell Wilson was efficient and effective with his passing, the 49ers were able to contain him for the most part, and he didn’t make many big plays. If the 49ers’ defense can hold Seattle’s offense to 17 points, they’ll take that every time.

The Seahawks are still the favorites to win the division and earn home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, but the 49ers, who will likely be an NFC wild card team, have at least made the case that they’re a team to be reckoned with in the postseason.

Still, the good news for the Seahawks is that if these teams meet a third time, it will be in Seattle.

  1. Great game. 9ers made the plays at the end and the Hawk D didn’t. Any Hawk fans who honestly believed they were going into SF and blow them out were delusional. Nice game SF. Road to SB still goes through Seattle at this point.

  2. Hmmm the Seahawks scored 17 and put up less than 270 yards but all the Seahawks fans were saying this is the best O ever assembled led by the best QB to ever step on a field…you’d think they’d have done better?

  3. Can we all stop acting like Seattle won the Superbowl last week now? Great win by the 49ers and I’m really glad to see frank gore still has something left in the tank. The man deserves a ring and maybe yellow jacket when its all said and done.

  4. Big win for SF, meaningless loss for SEA.
    Glad to see frank break the run, for so long he was the only weapon we had and won’t see him much longer. Also great game by Boldin against a very good secondary. Don’t have a lot of faith in a win up there later but at least this shows they can beat this team

  5. Cue the Seahawk fans saying this game doesn’t prove anything because the Niners won by only 2 points. For crying out loud, the Seahawks needed overtime and a late field goal to beat Houston and Tampa Bay!

    GO NINERS!!

  6. Props Hawks! Every bit the great game many expected. Nice to know that we may have a shot at beating you in the playoffs, granted that would have to happen in Seattle (ugh!). Great game!

  7. Some people forgot their PED’S in Seattle. I hate the Whiners but it’s nice to see Earl Thomas misplay a tackle on Frank Gore to set up the winning FG. Hey Earl, how does that taste. Defensive POY? I think not.
    All that talk from the Seahawks is just that. TALK!
    Bwa-Haa-HaaaaaaHa!
    One and done in the playoffs 12th women!

  8. hey seahawks fans, dont forget who the reigning nfc champs are. you better respect the 49ers.

  9. If we win 2 of the final 3 we’re the number 1 seed NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS. Congrats San Francisco on a good win, but you and Kaepernick don’t scare me one bit when your playing up in Seattle. #TrueFan #GoHawks

  10. good win SF.
    Not the end of the world for the Seahawks. Sometimes a loss is needed to refocus. Not a bad time in my opinion.

  11. Seahawks suck . All the hype last week when they beat NO at HOME . Everyone was saying they were the best team in the NFL right ? But they can’t beat niners on the road . And this is suppose to be the best team in the NFL ? I’m not buying it sorry. Not to take anything away from SF.

  12. Okay you want some excuses? Well the refs continuously bailed out SF with flags and every time Seattle did something good they brought it back and killed drives. Valid excuse. Just a great record at 11-2. How’s 9-4 and still being in 2nd?

  13. Niners all day! I wonder if that chump Sherman congratulated Harbaugh after their loss??? Hard work beat PEDs today.

  14. Great game Seahawks.., we are the class the the NFC.

    We had the ball 5 minutes longer than you. I’m a bit remiss we did not get more touchdowns, but I will take the win.

    The only NA, NA NA NA thing I want to say is… I loved seeing pouty Pete on the sidelines… He’s a bit too Pop Warmer zeal lest dad coach when he wins… Rubs it in a bit… So loved his ugly loser face.

    All that said… See you again in Seattle.

  15. Nice smash mouth game today. Enjoy the week, ‘Hawk haters. Might be the last time this year you have something to chirp about.

  16. Seahawk fan here – excellent game played by two excellent teams. None of us would expect less. Congrats to SF.

  17. Good hard fraught game . Never really seemed to be clicking on offense .. You pulled this one out if we meet again I thinki it will have a decisively different outcome . Clutch win by sf they solidified a playoff spot to me . No one will win in Seattle but sf atleast knows they can .

    Congrats niners fans I hopefully we have a healthy Percy for that one today our backup cbs showed some cracks . We’ll be full strength playoffs and will compete better . Sf deserved this one off to another championship week as Seattle says …

  18. The only thing Seattle has proven this year is
    A: They are incapable of beating the Niners (that’s 5 straight losses at SF)
    B: When challenged, they’re average away from home

    Kaepernick was AWFUL and the Niners still won.

    With 2 ridiculously small minded personal fouls on SF, Seattle still couldn’t produce any offense.

    Sorry Seatrolls. SF still has it better than you. Your elite team status has been DENIED!!!

  19. Congratulations on the win. It was a good game with two good teams. Both offenses played well and both defenses good too.

  20. Hawks fan here. Niners stepped up as most intelligent people expected. Hawks played with little discipline and Niners made 2 huge plays on final drive. Hopefully the Hawks use this game to bring themselves back to earth and finish strong.

    Lol@ the idiots. Seattle is 11-2 and still has the best record in the NFL. Hawks are going to the Superbowl.

    – – – – – – – – – – – –

    Just a reminder, the last three Super Bowl winners were 10-6, 9-7, 10-6. And only 2 number 1 seeds have won the Super Bowl since 2000. So I wouldn’t buy your plane tickets for NYC just yet, Seahawk fans. There’s a lot of football left!

  22. A nice smash mouth football game. Enjoy the week, ‘Hawk haters. It may very we’ll be the last time you can chirp all year.

  23. 49ers are the far better team. That so called uhm “team” in the state of Washington are classless, proven cheaters, their coach ruined an entire college program, than just walked away. If that were my home team I would be embarrassed. Now I know all you lovers of these clowns will defend them and that makes you worse. Demand class from your team. Winning by the rules is awesome, cheating makes it all tainted. Your the Barry Bonds of football.

  24. No excuses. Good game 49ers. It was a hard fought battle and have to hand it to Gore for making that game changing play. I hope we see you again in the playoffs.

    Go Hawks.

  25. they should of called this game the cry bowl man both coaches cried about everything wow and jim crybaugh cried the whole game in the refs ear you could see the wet spot pathetic display by a NFL coach san fransico whiners

  26. Sloppy game, lost track after about the 14th penalty. SF needed more than Seahawks and it showed. SF still needs a few more wins before they continue with this playoff talk.

  27. lynch couldn’t run against our def in the 2nd half. lynch and russell both got shutdown in the 2nd half. 49ers are still the superbowl favorites. our weapons are back and clicking.

  28. Looks like the Seahawks fans are a lot more classy than the 49er fans – all I’ve seen on here is props on the win and no excuses for the loss

  29. I give SF credit for winning at their house. But the fact is, someone is gonna have to come up to Seattle and beat us and that’s not happening.

  30. All of u complaining about unfair penaltys, those weren’t def. holding?
    You are the second most penalized team in league. Give respect where it’s do children. Maybe all that “whining” Harbaugh did about your secondary was actually just the truth.

  31. Two big plays, and the Seahawks unable to finish the redzone with a TD with 6 minutes to go was the difference.

    Good game by SF.

    Blessing in disguise for Seattle to knock them down a half peg, this game likely the most pressure they’re to face until the playoffs, with NYG on the road and two home games left.

    Hopefully this refocuses Seattle, and gets them working on getting the offense clicking for more then 1 or 2 quarters (which is all they’ve needed for the most part this year), and gets them to finish in redzone with TD’s.

  32. Congrats to the Niners.
    Great game.
    It was going Seattle’s way until Gore finally showed up after having gone missing for several days.

  33. It’s certainly easy to see reading this thread who the classier fans are, Seahawk fans obviously. Again, congrats to SF on the win. Great game.

  34. It’s funny how 49er fans keep saying they can’t wait for seahawk fans to start making excuses, nobody has made any yet. We aren’t you guys lol. Good game. Seahawks still best team in the nfc by 2 games so eh it’s what ever hahahahahahahaha.

  35. Congrats to the 49ers and their fans for their SuperBowl victory today. I’m sure 49er fans will be talking trash about beating Seattle but it doesn’t make you guys any better than the Seahawk fans that were bragging last week. Just saying.

  36. Seahawk fans are annoying and think their team is gods gift. But fellow 9er fans lets not stoop to their level. Kaep is still playing awful. And we still have to go to seattle in the PO’s. Tough road ahead of us lets stay humble even tho its nice to beat a team full of cheaters and dirty players. Let the seattle fans be the arrogant & ignorant idiots

  37. Congratulations SanFran. I knew this was going to be a good game decided in the 4th quarter. I expect we’ll meet again soon. Go HAWKS!

  38. It’s nice knowing that this game really doesn’t change anything for the Hawks…

    Enjoy your victory 9er’s you needed it a lot more!

  39. Yes. Seattle is average at best. 49ers really made a statement today with a dominating 2 point victory at home in a game that they had to have to stay ahead of elite teams like Dallas, Arizona and Philadelphia. Suck it Seahawks. Niners are the best team in the league.

  40. goldrush36 says: Dec 8, 2013 7:43 PM

    Here comes the excuses or the “this game didn’t matter anyway” to no known end

    ———————————————————-

    Totally agree. All week they were talking how they were going to beat the Niner’s. Now after the pedhawks lose, the obnoxious fans are already saying it doesn’t matter. The teams and fans hate each other so much, and now suddenly it doesn’t matter? Too funny.

  41. Have respect niners act live you’ve been there before or like this wasn’t your Super Bowl and you’ll never get there again .. It’s been a long time since you had bragging rights against Seattle . You win be happy but u also barely won so keep perspective .

    A win is a win can’t compare margin of victories over other opponents that’s whack . Seattle looked flat not gunna act like it mattered but they did have a short week.. Sf just made the last plays to win ..good game and have class I think we know Seattle is the better team . They were off and down a cop players and u showed an you still barely beat them.. Literally wished Seattle took some caffeine pulls they looked lathargic ..good we’ll deserved and mandatory win by those niners .. We welcome you back in the clink anytime …

    What was up with all the flags tho couldn’t get any routine plays or game play for hitherto teams but mainly seemed to affect my hawks .. What a poorly officiate gees self up the flow of the game for everyone .. I truly think this was a bigger factor than noise..

    Seahawks have the best road record in the nfl and will easily beat Nyg and rams

  42. That was a great game! Hats off to the Niners for pulling it off. It was a close game, just as I had called it.

    As to the idiots claiming to “own” Seattle, keep in mind two things – for one, you only won by 2 points (and as I’ve posted here before, a win’s a win) and second, the Hawks kept the Niners in check until the Frank Gore run. You can thank Frank Gore for pulling off the play. Kaep should thank his lucky stars he has Gore, because no way in hell was Kaep gonna pull that off.

    Hats off to the Niners for pulling off the win, and to the ones posting here talking trash – quit acting like YOU won the Super Bowl. People may confuse you for a Seahawks fan, and we know YOU don’t want that reputation…LOL.

  43. I’ve never seen a fan base beat their chest so loudly for winning a a regular season game that gives them a leg up for the 6th seed in the playoffs. All you ever hear is that the 9ers have history of championships and wins, yet this is how you act when you win one? By 2 points? On a last second field goal?

    It was a helluva game. Any true fan of either team saw exactly what they expected today, and SF came out ahead at the end. Congratulations to SF, the REIGNING NFC WEST champs. When Seattle wins the NFC WEST this year, hopefully some of you delusional whiners will recognize as well.

    And anyone being honest with themselves has to give John Harblow the Whine Crown over Pete The Cheat, although it’s a well fought battle.

  44. I’ll be civil. Heck of a game both D’s came to play.
    Niners showed the Seattle D can be thrown on.
    The one long run by Gore broke their back (of course)
    The rest 9f the NFL should be scared. The niners look like they are heating up.

    Playoffs will be awesome. Niners – Seahawks for the third time this season possibly? Winner surely wins the SB.

  45. Well played Seahawks, exciting game to watch. Really glad my Niners made it out on top, so there is a legitimate chance of meeting again in the playoffs.
    Still, this win hasn’t proven anything beyond the fact that home field still matters a lot when both teams are about even.
    And you’re right to say that if Kap shows up like this in Seattle, it’s not going to be fun to watch. Don’t get me wrong, I am happy he is the Niners QB and I think he can be all of the things people made him out to be after last season, but some things just trip him up again and again. I know he knows, just as anyobody else on the Niners, so I am confident!
    One thing I am tired of, though, is the playcalling on offense: A lot of the time it is just entirely predictable and doesn’t show any confidence in any of the receivers, let alone Kap. I understand that against the Hawks, but it’s an issue.

    Rant over, I know they will get a lot better from here. Well played again, Seattle.

  46. Very good game by both teams. Nice to watch a game were the refs didnt have a hand in the out come.

    =============================

    LOL, I am NOT a S.F. fan, but I will say, a good portion of Seattle’s fans are by far the least classy in the NFL after a win.

    Not all, but there are a lot.

    That is why there is such a backlash after this loss. All the people (like myself) that did not have a feeling about Seattle one way or another till having to read post after post about how Seattle is better than everyone, are reacting.

    My team is in the AFC and after seeing all the posts from Seattle fans, the Seahawks have have eclipse the Patriots as my 4th least favorite team.

  48. The Seahawks could really use a game-changing offensive player. You know, someone who could be a great slot receiver, take a screen pass for 30 yards, and be a great kick and/or punt returner. Putting him on this field would make the Seahawks unstoppable. Seriously.

    Oh, and it would be great if the player could be healthy and not count in a big way toward the salary cap.

  49. Sorry Peter’s cheaters. Its obvious u need PED’s and bogus criwd noise and defensive holding not called to win.

  50. Good game by both teams. Too many flags. Just glad it wasn’t decided by them. See you in the playoffs.

    I take it you missed all the comments leading up to the game how the Seahawks were going to crush the niners in every way conceivable?

  52. Great game. Really enjoyed watching. My only complaint is to the Hawks fan who claimed SF got all the calks. What game were you watching?? Dont get me wrong, this is not a bash of the Seahawks, who have an amazing team, but they could have been flagged SO much more. If anything, SF won this game in SPITE of the horrible no-calls. That is all.

    Really? Maybe go to 49ers threads the past few weeks and see Seahawks fans showing complete and utter disrespect. Or any 49ers related thread for that matter. Pot…Kettle

  54. Thumbed up every comment except for one:

    thelionsrgreat says: Dec 8, 2013 7:46 PM

    49ers are the far better team.

    Far better might be a slight exaggeration.

    49er fan since 1970.

  55. LOL at the Niner fans talking smack over a two point win at home. The Niners HAD to have this to have a shot at the postseason. The Seahawks, coming off a short week and emotional win over the Saints, didn’t have as much to play for and still almost snuffed out the Niners’ playoff hopes at the Stick. Talk all the trash you want Niner fans, but Seattle is still sitting very pretty.

  56. Really? Maybe go to 49ers threads the past few weeks and see Seahawks fans showing complete and utter disrespect. Or any 49ers related thread for that matter. Pot…Kettle

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    All teams have fans that embarrass the rest of the overwhelmingly sane majority of fans. Sports have become an unhealthy obsession to too many people disillusioned with own lives.

  57. Maybe logical voices should comment on the poor state of his team. Rgknee sucks and o does shannahan. Surprised he hasn’t plunged off a bridge yet

    ===================================

    Your idiotic username pretty much tells us all we need to know about your point of view, but ok…I’ll humor you a bit.

    First and foremost…congrats to the Niners on the W. They and their fans enjoy to enjoy the day as they were the better team in this one.

    But at least pretend to TRY to stay in this universe with your comments. Clearly you didn’t ready the comments section before posting, because if you had, you’d see that there really aren’t a group of comments whining about def. holding calls.

    Other than that…for your own good, revisit your grade school grammar book. Please, for the sake of humanity.

  59. Remember seahawk fans 2 games totaling 4 points (1 against carolina and 3 against the saints) separate the hawks record from the niners. same scenario with two lucky wins by the hawks that went into OT and turned into lucky wins. so before you go beating your chest you have to ACTUALLY make it into a Superbowl and win it before you have lots to scream about. See you again in the playoffs!

  60. Seahawk fans upset that we’re celebrating a victory against (arguably) the toughest team in the NFL. Yet all year long they posted “42-13” as if they won the Super Bowl. lol

    It was a good game from both teams. 49ers won, Seahawks lost. End of story.

    It’s gonna be tough to go through the Hawks in Seattle, no doubt. You gotta love your chances, but nobody has won anything yet. Stay humble Seattle.

    Go NINERS!!!

  61. Calling this SF’s super bowl is funny coming from fans who only know regular season success. You lost and your db’s do hold like crazy. Get over it, Seattle is good but not so much better that this outcome was not expected.

  62. Don’t be SAD, SeaHog fans !!
    At least we kow who’s the BEST team and who’s Second Best

    Seattle’s #2, they try harder !!

    HA HA !!
    Better luck, next time !!

    ——————————————————

    Oh the irony.

    Let’s see how many Super Bowls have the pedhawks won? Maybe the pedhawks should win one before acting like they belong.

    And talk about acting like you been there, you obnoxious fans were talking like you won the Super Bowl after beating the Niners last year.

    I swear, people in glass houses.

  64. Can’t you idiots just say, “Good, hard fought game” and leave it at that? You like to talk about whoever wins or loses is the best or worst team in the league. Get over it. It was one game. Nobody owns anybody. They’re both good teams. Next.

    I give SF credit for winning at their house. But the fact is, someone is gonna have to come up to Seattle and beat us and that’s not happening.
    ————————————————————
    In the last 2 years, the Seahawks are 13-1 at home. The only people who disagree are Roger Goodell and the rent-a-refs. And a few delusional Seadderall fans.

  66. Okay you want some excuses? Well the refs continuously bailed out SF with flags and every time Seattle did something good they brought it back and killed drives. Valid excuse. Just a great record at 11-2. How’s 9-4 and still being in 2nd?

    ——————————————-

    No, what happened is…Seahawks FINALLY got called for the dirty play they exhibit every single time they play. Pass interference is their middle name and there were finally some refs that called it instead of ignoring it.

    There’s a reason that you #2 in the league for penalties…all of your players are very obviously “pumped up” on something and it ain’t adrenaline!!

    I’m not even a 49ers fan and I was rooting for them–great game 49ers!

  67. That game was insane. Seahawks are undeniable, and yes I held my breath when Wilson threw that bomb at the end, his receivers have came up huge for him these past two years. This matchup is gonna come down to home field advantage every time, or the next couple years. I hope we ont have to go through Seattle, but it sure looks like we are gonna have to. We can win that game, but we have to bring our A+ game. But I am sure glad I don’t have to read all the Seahawks bragger s, most of em are taking the high road, right now, wich is surprising. But they would’ve been thrashing us if they won, and that game could’ve gone either way. I also am glad I didn’t have to see Pete the cheat running around like a little girl, I have seen waaaay too much of that lately. And I am very interested to see how mike florio will turn this win into something negative, wich he will.

  68. Lol at Seahawk fans saying today was the Niners Super Bowl… I guess that’s now 6 more than Seattle huh?

  69. When Wilson throws an interception, he handles it like a man. When Kappy throws an interception, he cusses and rants all the way to the sidelines. That will prove itself to be the most important factor that separates these two teams in the end. Wilson’s maturity and leadership mark him as one of the true greats of the game. Kappy just acts like an immature idiot most of the time. He will be long forgotten before Wilson even reaches his peak. Go Hawks!!!

  70. Good hard-fought game really would prefer not to see the Seahawks again but think it’ll happen up in Seattle CK missed a lot of plays today and continues not to develop the way I hoped this year. We really need a receiver to take the top off the Defense. Good, much needed win and D kept us close as usual O made just enough plays.
    Niners fans keep your heads, we have a long way to go.

  71. Dervy, a number of us try.

    The recycled “ped” and “cheat” stuff gets old pretty quickly.
    To the good 49er fans I again congratulate you.
    to the trolls.. meh… whatever, have a great life.
    I wish the mods would pay as much attention to cleaning up their comments.

    Just about every team out there has PED users. The teams that don’t have anybody caught, probably have players that are better at hiding it.

    Your team has a huge advantage at home and that is the amplified 12 woman noise, without it, the Seahawks are looking up at SF in the standings. Get that through your fat skull…and remember your rafters are empty at this point.

    Niners you won a solid game.Congrats. Seahawks played so physical it was all penalties and others were weren’t called for. I believe we will split future games for another 5 years. The nfc west is no longer a laughing stock.
    It’s terrifying that the niners and Panthers are wild card teams . (The longest winning streaks in the nfl I think)

    See you in playoffs

    Yup, I did. Link me to it. Thanks

  75. Niners won a good game.
    Seahawks are still winning the division.
    Vikings fans trolling pft have no life.

    We’re going to the playoffs,
    I’ll be watching live, or in Vegas,
    So Quit hating from a keyboard

  76. It was a battle as expected. It was a tough loss because the game could’ve gone either way. Congrats to the 49ers on making plays when needed. No excuses.

    To the whiner fans, ya’ll can suck my Hawk. The comments from your fan base on here are ridiculous. -All the PED, cheat hawks, pumping noise comments just shows how simple minded you are! At least we don’t need a reminder letter on how to be a fan and maintain home field advantage. Smh

  77. Hawk fans its alright, we’re 11-2 and that was 49ers highlight of their season.

    Besides last week when we beat the Saints they tried to point at the Vikings/Packers/Patriot dominate teams as a formula for not winning the Super Bowl. Another win and the division is wrapped. The win after home-field and number 1 playoff seed is locked.

    Go Hawks!

  78. Seahawks lost a road game? Shocking. Good thing the Super Bowl is in Sea–oh wait, it’s outdoors on the east coast.. Dont’ waste our time Seahawks.

  79. A) Delusional Seahawk fans…not everyone talking smack is a Niner fans. Your team is well-hated among NFL fans.

    B) After getting our rears kicked last two times on Seattle’s turf, it was nice to get a win so of course, we’re going to be excited.

    C) Quit complaining about flags on your db’s. Fox network had a segment and spent time on discussing your “aggressive db’s” which was code for your db’s holding on every play

    D) Good game and we might see you at the Clink…though I hope not.

  80. Always nice to see the cheaters from SeaWah lose. Besides all the banned substances they take, their dbs, hold, interfere and commit penalties on every pass play. They are coached to do this and see what they can get away with. Too bad the refs are either blind or intimidated. Here’s hoping that one day they start calling them.

  81. Seahawks fans are newbooties to the party. The underage drunk at an adult function. Millenium fans straight up. That’s a fact. You kids popped on the scene after 2006. Until recently all you busters cares about was the great outdoors. Now all of a sudden you’re “lifelong fans”. Your team started to make noise in 2004. Check the history books. You are an obscurity.

  82. No way imreading all these. Great game. Glad the NINERS pulled it out. Anyone that calls Russell Wilson OR Colin Kaepernick an RG3 wannabe is clearly correct. Both of them would much rather play on an awful team, for an awful coach and an awful owner. Winning and looking like Super Bowl contenders is sooooo 2012. Kick rocks. RH3 sucks.

    GO NINERS

    What hawks are on PED’s? How is Pete Carroll a cheater? Going on 1.5 years not one person has answered me.

    NFLPA somehow got the identifying the drug banned for a failed drug test for NFL players. So what is the drug with the least stigma when they do get busted and everyone is asking “what for”…..Adderall. Unless they are all up late cramming for mid-terms and finals.

    Pete “the cheat” left USC when the hammer was coming down from NCAA. He enjoyed the recruiting and winning success while his players cheated UNDER HIS WATCH but bailed when things got hot.

  84. Who is the offensive lineman who hurt his ankle? He threw a fit on the sidelines and, according to the female reporter, it struck someone in the face. Then the camera panned to him and he looked like someone told him he could not have any candy before dinner…I’d test that guy..

  85. If Broncos and SheChicks end up in the Superbowl, I think that would be a first in post-merger era where former division opponents square off in the big one. Interesting.

    I remember SheChicks back in King Dome/Steve Largent days, seen games in their stadium, and would have soft-spot for them. But given they employ the creature named Carroll, I like cheering when they lose.

  86. Stop talking about the Hawks lucky wins… The only were missing nearly 4 starting offensive linemen.. U hear me, that’s far from lucky. Missing an all pro and I pro howl all pro type player and another linemen playing out of position. They found ways to win. Even if the competition was having a bad season they were still starters on another team and mind you the other teams strength was how deep their dl was.. For the dumb that means they had their strength against our weakness .. Of course we’d struggle..

    We won tho so calm the noise. also did you forget we lost our stating lb with a broken bone in his foot, then magically the Niners could find a couple running lanes…

    Every team has injuries, but bragging or boasting without acknowledging them makes you look just as moronic as people who don’t understand why the pack sucks without Rodgers….
    Certain players are key, not saying the weakness of losing Kj won’t last hit at least who ever is playing that position will have the opportunity to get reps and be prepared ..

    Good win but u beat a team kissing 6 key players.. The seahawks have won without them and will win going forward, Just didn’t have enough play makers to get it done. Niners still had to make plays but doesn’t hurt that the key plays made were where Seattle had just taken a hit.

  87. The way the Seahawks played defense today was an absolute disgrace to the word football.

    I can’t remember a football in my life where nearly after every play the commentators were talking about the pass interference by Seattle, and if it was called or not.

    No wonder the stop teams from scoring. Almost every single damn play they were holding the 49ers jerseys, their shoulder pad “V”, you name it.

    It was disgusting. And I hope the NFL took notice of it today. The NFL officials HAVE to be briefed before the officiate Seattles games to watch out for the PI and holds of their defenders.

    Anyone can be a good corner if your allowed to hold and grab. What happened today when the officials didn’t allow it??

    If I’m a head coach and I play Seattle then I’m making damn sure I complain publicly about how their corners cheat to get the calls in my favor.

  88. localvoicesays: Dude get a clue RG3 is not a team player his teammates don’t even help him up THE WEST THE BEST have a good time watching another team in the playoffs……….Seahawks great game much respect should be fun for the next few years RG3= mediocre

  89. Hey niners. ya all bunch a cry babies. you win and still cry yourself to sleep. glad u won so we can pound ya at the clink.

  90. OMG, I just had one of my biggest laughs of the night.

    I am trying to translate allidoiswin55’s post, having to read several parts multiple times.

    I’ve never seen a fan base beat their chest so loudly for winning a a regular season game

    SERIOUSLY?!?!? No fan base has yapped more about a regular season win than SEA’s, both this season and last. That’s not even debatable among those not delusional. Please tell me your being sarcastic. Either way it is good for a laugh…

    And all the whining about the officiating needs to stop, it’s Carroll’s game plan to have the db’s hold 100% of the time, and trust the officials are not willing to throw the flag every play until they accept it and keep them in their pocket…SEA’s db’s had a handful of jersey ever time they were flagged…just cuz you are not used to getting flagged, doesn’t me they are not legit.

  94. Eastcoastniner. So still, nobody has answered me. What Seahawks are on a PED? I’ll help you, nobody has been suspended for a PED this year. As for Carroll “cheating” he didn’t know about the Reggie bush stuff, EVERYONE has said as much. Let me ask you a question. Let’s say you are the USC coach, and you make 3 million a year right? Ok, you get a phone call from the richest owner in the NFL and he says, “hey, we want to interview you to be the coach, abc executive Vice President of the Seahawks, and we will double how much money you currently make”. What do YOU do? Say “nah, I want to stay here and have a less prestigious job, and make less money. Kick rocks…

  96. good win by the niners. not a great win by any means, but a good grind out win.

    I gotta say that it was a well deserved kick in the teeth for the hawks. dont believe the media seattle, you still have a ways to go. u guys talk more trash than any other team in recent memory.

    niners you boys got the team to win it all, but seriously you need to throw it across the middle against this team. its open all day.

    Seattle can talk all they want. I don’t recall them winning anything……ever

  97. i thought earl thomas was the best safety in the league and potential DPOY? how can that be when he had old man frank one on one and franky boy blew by him for 51 yds? earl thinks every tackle he makes is the winning superbowl tackle… so good to see him help seadderol lose! id check kj wright for ped’s too!!! he threw a very nasty roid raged temper tantrum!!!

  98. that pic by e wright was so satyisfying! thanks russel!!! is made my day and my week! im gonna catch a nice gym pump tomo thinking about how much cooler and tough harbaugh is than the gum chewing chearleader pete christmas carrol!! all he needs is a set of pom poms!!

    ——————————————————-
    Not a likely scenario with one and done Manning QB’ing the Broncos

  100. Glad to see some fans from both teams take the high road and talk only about the hard fought game and the mutual respect for two very good teams. This game has been the game all season long that I figured would be the hardest game.
    Both teams fought hard, played well and also not so well.
    While I love the rivalry between our teams it also saddens me that so many stoop to name calling, player bashing, lying and being all around jack a’s. (fans from both teams).
    Of course I think we have the better team. The argument could be made that we made it more of a game in their house than they did in our house.
    The only thing worse than the 49er/Seahawk fans acting like a.hats is the trolls from other teams stopping and talking smack in a debate they have no place.
    Good game to both of our teams. Can’t wait to see you in January!!

  101. For Seahawk fans thinking if they get homefield advantage, this thing is wrapped up, this game is a coin flip. It played out the same way as the game in Seattle, only went deeper into the 4th whereas the Seahawks took control of that tight game early in the quarter when they were at home. I’m thinking in a playoff game, I’d prepare for this kind of outcome instead of the breakaway scenario.

  102. Why didn’t Pete just let theNiners score rather than get the ball back with 19 seconds. Airman said the same thing.

  103. I’m a 9er fan, and we need to pipe down. Winning by 2 at home when you’re a big boy in the conference. Considering the D, Kap & Roman had put together a perfect game until that interception. If we had stepped on their throat then like we should’ve, I may have felt better about the win. That’s what big boys do.

  104. Wait a minute SF won their Superbowl today? This coming from the team preaching 42-13 for 10 months because that was absolutely all they had to reflect on for the season? Excuse me for a second….. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  105. Great game! Had me on the edge of my seat! Thank goodness our D is fantastic otherwise we would have been toast………we still have A LOT of work to do offensively…….as a LOYAL (and realistic) Niner fan I’m just not sure that’s going to happen in the next few weeks. But then again, we got to the SB with AS at the helm most of the year & he was the king of field goals.

    Side note – I can’t stand Pete Carrol, since his USC days. How many packs of gum do you think he goes through in one game? I’ve NEVER seen someone chomp SO HARD! Really like RW though……..he is a VERY likable guy.

What do YOU do? Say “nah, I want to stay here and have a less prestigious job, and make less money. Kick rocks…

    Bruce Irvin’s was suspended for PEDs this year and returned in game 5 of this season. Is it hard to keep track of your players on PEDs?

  110. The game could have gone either way but the 49ers stalled in the red zone and they could have been up 14 points in the 1st quarter…credit to the hawks defense for that. It’s kind of hard to expect Kaep to beat the hawks elite secondary when he’s still trying to improve. Kaep still needs to work on his reads and touch passes, I was hoping for some underneath quick slants or passes in the middle. This game was what most expected…physical, chippy and a very defensive game. I wasn’t surprised about the flags flying because last week against the Rams…flags were flying to control the players.

    The X factor was definitely Gore on that big 51 yard run and staying in bounds to run the clock out. The 49ers needed this game and they wanted it more because if the hawks clinched the NFC West in Candlestick before they move…this will definitely hurt the 49ers pride. It was a good game on both sides and it came down to who made the last play. Still 3 more games to play and the 49ers need to win it all for the 5th or 6th seed and depending on where the Panthers finish as well.

    As much as the fans talk smach to each other, its part of the game and it shows we are very passionate about our team. Good to see some humility from the hawks fans and also the 49ers faithful. In the past I rooted for the Hawks to beat the patriots in their superbowl and I did the same for when the Cardinals played against the steelers superbowl. The Best Division this year is definitely the NFC West…represent!!! now we just need a team from the NFC West to win a Superbowl…

  111. The Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers…Two of the most ignorant and arrogant fan bases in sports. The comments are classic.

  112. “Have respect niners act live you’ve been there before or like this wasn’t your Super Bowl and you’ll never get there again .. It’s been a long time since you had bragging rights against Seattle . You win be happy but u also barely won so keep perspective .

    A win is a win can’t compare margin of victories over other opponents that’s whack . Seattle looked flat not gunna act like it mattered but they did have a short week.. Sf just made the last plays to win ..good game and have class I think we know Seattle is the better team . They were off and down a cop players and u showed an you still barely beat them.. Literally wished Seattle took some caffeine pulls they looked lathargic ..good we’ll deserved and mandatory win by those niners .. We welcome you back in the clink anytime …

    What was up with all the flags tho couldn’t get any routine plays or game play for hitherto teams but mainly seemed to affect my hawks .. What a poorly officiate gees self up the flow of the game for everyone .. I truly think this was a bigger factor than noise..

    Seahawks have the best road record in the nfl and will easily beat Nyg and rams”

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Marino, Unitas, Elway, Peyton Manning all threw INT’s, guess they were all hype and not really the best QB’s ever, Jim Brown and Barry Sanders fumbled the ball. Guess they were all hype too. Silly comment. I’ll have to assume you are just another another fan who knows little to nothing about the game. Or maybe we should judge ALL 9er fans by you and make a blanket statement that you prove what horrible football fans 9rt fans are.

  114. Niner fans gonna hate, Seahawks fans gonna hate. It’s a rivalry. Not one fan base is better than the other. We’re all gonna talk smack and that’s part of what makes being a fan so much fun! Gotta hand it to the Niners, they pulled off the W. That’s all that counts. I talked a lot of talk all week. I will humbly shut my mouth for now until next time or the occasional moment here and there, lol.

    Still Wearing Blue and Bleeding Green… Hope to see you in the playoffs

  115. Lots of talking from SF fans whose team still has yet to clinch a spot in the playoffs. I’d worry much less about Seattle and more about Arizona at this point.

    Seattle avg. margin of victory at home over SF the past 2 seasons = 27.5

    SF avg. margin of victory at home over Seattle the past 2 seaosns = 4.5

    Love seeing the comments about it “only” being a 2 point win. Newsflash: close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades!

    ____________________________________

    Such wisdom and enlightenment. Here’s some; the thought process is that a 2pt win, though still a win, isn’t really all that convincing, especially when you’ve been getting blown out on the other team’s field.

  118. “Lucky KraperNoob didn’t Choke.

    Give credit to the 49ers’ Defense, DC, Gore and Boldin for this win. Roman had to pull this out of his rear and extended his time, maybe until post season.

    KraperNoob still didn’t prove in this game he was better than Wilson or the QB he replaced when he didn’t earn the job, being handed the job to a SB caliber team since the middle of the last season. He’s still a Noob.

    Seattle on the hand proved is beatable as long as the game isn’t in Seattle and the 9ers defense provided a blue print to containing Wilson in the cage (pocket).”

  119. Congrats niner fans!

    I posted last week that I thought Seattle would in 24-21. I also stated it wouldn’t surprise me if the niners won since they were playing much better the past few weeks.

    Hard fought game with too many penalties on both sides.

    On Gore’s 51 yard run; I think that’s the first time I’ve ever seen Earl Thomas out of position to make a tackle.

    Oh well. On to next week. I still believe Seattle takes the division and home field for the playoffs.

    Cue the Seahawk fans saying this game doesn’t prove anything because the Niners won by only 2 points. For crying out loud, the Seahawks needed overtime and a late field goal to beat Houston and Tampa Bay!
    **********
    The teams split this season. All it proves is both teams held serve at home.

    Tampa is playing well as of late, winning 4 of 5 since the Seattle lose. Hopefully your niners do not lose to Tampa next week, or even squeak by….because then your comments would look silly.

    Seahawks’ 2 losses came on the road, the Saints have 3 on the road…no big difference here.

    The Patriots have the best road record since 2006 (8 seasons). The Saints, well, they have the second best road record during that period.

  125. Sure…. but your “Well, well, well…I guess the Saints aren’t the only team to ‘play a little different’ away from home” is ridiculous.

    Yes, every team plays a ‘little different’ from home.

    Your comments implied that Seattle played like the Saints did in Seattle. Nothing could be further from the truth.

  126. I never implied that. What I implied was that Seattle isn’t any better on the road than any other super bowl hopeful.

    I would much rather see someone, anyone, chomp “SO HARD” than constantly see the spittle fly out of the crater of a mouth of Harbaugh’s. Seriously – say it don’t spray it. or in his case yell it, don’t expel it. ewww

  128. Just a great fought game by both teams. On a side note, what the hell happened on that punt block…Apparently Harbaugh had the option of taking the penalty and having them punt again, or just taking the ball where it went out of bounds after getting illegally batted forwards 20 yards. So essentially the illegal batting helped. What a terrible rule

    What hawks are currently on PED’s? Bruce Irvin this year, yes, got me there. I am just glad he didnt host a party, shoot guns and have someone get killed, even though that didnt bring a suspension for some reason. Go ahead and let me know that all of the Niners are above reproach, dont take the same pills every other team takes, or have guys that smoke weed. Again, how is Pete a Cheater? Give it up guys, have some self respect.

  130. To the 49ers fans talking about 5 straight at your place… well done, and you outscored us in those 5 games a combined 57 points. We’ve beat you the past 2 times out at the Clink by 55. See you up here in January if you make it.

  131. I find it hilarious you 49ers fans think you’re even remotely close to being as good as the Hawks. Congrats on your 2 point “blowout” win yesterday. Even with questionable penalties and being down a couple key players, you threw everything you had at us and could only eek out a W in the last 30 seconds of the game, on YOUR home turf not to mention. I also find it hilarious that you complain about our defense’s style of physical play (holding or PI as you Whiners call it) yet Boldin and Crabtree push off on every pass play thrown their way. I know not winning the division this year is a hard concept for some of you to grasp, BUT maybe if you’re lucky and complain to the refs a little harder, they’ll help you slide in as a six seed. Sadly that won’t be enough to get you to the Clink in January, but that’s probably a good thing seeing as how you’d lose, BADLY, anyways.

    Hmm… ok I’ll take this one.
    Seahawks and 49ers split the two games this season.
    Oh but Seattle is 11-2 and 49ers are 9-4.
    I guess that means that Seattle is better than the 49ers.
    Took 49ers 30+ years to come up with their first SB win.
    The History

    Matchups: 29

    Series Record: Seahawks lead series 15-14

    49ers Home Record vs. Seahawks: 49ers lead series 7-6

    49ers Away Record vs. Seahawks: Seahawks lead series 9-7

    First Meeting: 9/26/76, 49ers win 37-21, at Sea.

    Last Meeting: 9/15/13, Seahawks win 29-3, at Sea.

    Current Streak: Lost 2

    Longest 49ers Win Streak: 4 (12/12/10 – 10/18/12)

    Longest Seahawks Win Streak: 6 (10/12/03 – 12/11/05)

    Most 49ers Points: 40 (12/12/10): 49ers win 40-21, at SF

    Most Seahawks Points: 42 – 2 times, (Last 12/23/12): Seahawks win 42-13, at Sea.

    49ers Shutouts: None

    Seahawks Shutouts: 2 (Last 11/12/07), Seahawks win 24-0, at Sea.

    Looks like historically Seattle is at least as good if not better than the 49ers.

    But lets all get back to this year because that is what counts.

    split games, Seattle has scored more points and has the better record.

  133. dukeearl

    I looked that up a few months ago and was surprised to see it was that close. I used to follow the hawks in the 80’s and can’t remember one game they played from that time period. I expect it will stay close as both teams seem to be contending for awhile.

  134. Niners barely escape with a win on their turf and their fans are now calling them world beaters. These fans (you know who yu are) talk crap (like saying cheaters, druggies, dirty players, roid raged, etc…) and beat their chest. What pathetic bunch! I mean REALLY! Making fun of 43-13 or 29-3 and saying it was an anomaly. Do you think 96-51 in a 2 year 4 game score total is still an anomaly? Yeah right.

  135. LOL Seahawk fans are so butthurt, they are trying to boycott “Beats by Dre” headphones because there is a commercial with Kapernick endorsing them!

    Where is the info on this official boycott? Quit making crap up…

  137. Pretty nasty commercial vs the Seattle fans… Cap and Russell have been doing spots together all year, I thought for sure we’d see a comparable commercial for Wilson. He wears neon green beats before the games when he finds his spot of balance on the field before the game.

    As a Hawks fan this kinda stings and is disrespectful with out a counter commercial.
