Don't forget coming out of week 1, we looked weak, and you guys were riding off a huge game against GB, and we all know how that turned out. Just saying I wouldn't go making bold predictions about that Dec 8 game. Assuming both teams are healthy when it comes around, really could go either way. Seahawks may be considered a weak road team historically, but we're 4-1 this year so far on the road, maybe not dominating victories, but victories nonetheless. And the one team that we lost to on the road, was a close one against the team that stomped you guys at home. Dec 8 will be a fun game to watch, but I really don't think it'll be a stomping on either side.
I think that the huge game in GB made the coaching staff overconfident in Kaepernick's passing abilities going up to Seattle. They got away from the run, scripting a lot of passes and going three and out repeatedly. No designed screen passes. Seattle stacked defenders in the box and Boldin couldn't get open man-to-man, so Kaepernick had no one to pass to. The game plan sucked, once again. Since the Colts game, they are not relying solely on Kaep to win games with his arm. Even so, Manningham will be a big upgrade over Kyle Williams, if he's close to 100%. Crabtree will be a big X-factor come playoff time.
Seattle won't have the advantage of the 12th Retard. If Kellen Clemens wasn't so careless passing the ball, and St. Louis had just kept handing the ball to Zac Stacy, they could have easily won the game. Kaepernick should have more pump fakes like the one midway through his run. At this point, secondaries are probably locked onto his first read, so if he can fake a throw, he can probably get everyone to bite. I think if St. Louis proved anything today, it's that a steady dose of the run can net plenty of yardage on the ground against Seattle's D-line.
