The 49ers were down 34-29. The Seahawks were down 28-24. The 49ers started at their own 20. The Seahawks started at their own 20. The 49ers’ first play was an eight-yard run by Frank Gore. The Seahawks’ first play was a 31-yard pass down the left sideline to Marshawn Lynch. Gore rushed 33 yards to Baltimore’s seven-yard […]
The Seahawks have made a habit of collecting 49ers castoffs. Michael Robinson and Will Tukuafu blocked for Marshawn Lynch. B.J. Daniels is still on Seattle’s roster (checks roster on Seahawks.com — yeah, he’s still there). Demarcus Dobbs played snaps in the Super Bowl, as did … Ricardo Lockette. Yes, the guy who 49ers fans know […]
What every pundit out there picking “not Seattle” to win the Super Bowl fails to realize is that this team is full of sharks that have now tasted blood. One feeding does not satiate them. It emboldens them, and steels their belief that every hunt will result in a meal. Try telling Earl Thomas he […]
A ton of money was wagered on the Packers in the hours leading up, dropping the spread to 4/4.5, but Seattle ended up winning by 20. The Super Bowl hangover either never arrived or will reveal itself on a time-release basis. Green Bay’s defense was awful. Marshawn Lynch gets tackled harder during Seahawks practices. He’s been […]
Hate is usually too strong of a word, but it works in reference to Seahawks and 49ers fans. Seahawks fans think 49ers fans are a bunch of snooty whiners, still drunk off nostalgia from Super Bowl victories that came almost 20 years ago. 49ers fans think Seahawks fans have an inflated sense of their own […]
It worked last week, so we’ve brought back the same writers to predict the 49ers’ next game, the NFC Championship against the Seattle Seahawks. I’ve rambled enough about this game, the key players, Jim Harbaugh’s pants, silly videos, and the ever-dangerous Colin Kaepernick. So let’s just get to the predictions and see how we did […]
A lot of you probably think I’m crazy for crafting a headline like that, but what Marshawn Lynch does has been almost inconsequential over the last three years when the 49ers face the Seahawks. Not that Lynch hasn’t been effective, because he has. But his statistical output has had very little to do with the […]
They seem to create these ridiculous cartoons for every big game, regardless of the sport. Who can forget the World Series preview that featured a panda sawing off the head of a tiger and mounting it on a wall? The NFC Championship edition from Taiwanese Animators is just as weird and almost as gory, but […]
