There isn't a team in the division that scares us. Any given Sunday.

This upcoming game will give us a better indication of what may be consistent problems (o-line??) and what was just a one off performance anomaly.

I was very worried about Seattle coming into the season, but I agree, this is a game that we should be very confident about. The Seahawks struggled early against the Rams, and while we shouldn't take them lightly, we should also remember that they have a new head coach and a lot of players, including Hasselbeck, coming back from injuries.

We have flaws, but so do they. And we're at home, in front of a justifiably electrified crowd. We have to address our problems because they'll work on theirs, but yes, starting the season with the two toughest opponents in our division is a major test that will tell us a lot.

Agreed. Their front 7 is very underrated with Tatupu, Curry and Kerney and I think will create problems for us when we try to run against them.

We play this game at home which is what I think gives us the edge. I'm actually not too worried about their offense. Nobody scares me THAT much as say Fitz and Boldin.

-9fA

at least they dont got a beast like dockett in the middle of the line. that dude while i hate him is a beast. that tackle for loss while he was getting doubled was crazy

I think we will do better with the run against them. They don't have A Docket, but they do have Mebane, who is very disruptive, on the cusp of being a pro bowler. He will match up against Rachel. Controlling Mebane will be the key to this game, IMHO.

I would worry about their passing game. The truth is, they have been better at that than Zona has been this year. They do look sharp in the pass. However, I'm not confident they will be able to run worth a s**t (can't draw many conclusions from their game against the Rams) or provide adequate protection for Hass if they were to go up against a defense that wasn't at the bottom of the league. Without those two things, I think they will stumble in the pass.

I think we are going to win this game, and I think there is a good chance we may win it convincingly if we play like we did today AND get some running game going as well.

Our O-Line better pull their heads out of their asses quick.

I watched that play again. He wasn't getting doubled, he took an inside move and Baas was pulling and ran straight into Snyder's block.

Our O-line seemed very confused with the trapping scheme we ran.

We should just block straight on, like on Gores touchdown run.

I can't understand the devotion to this pulling scheme. The plays develop too slowly.
I look forward to another close win next week, but not nearly the scare from today.

Reasons:

1) Singletary has proven that he's a master motivator and there's no way in hell he doesn't have our offensive line out to prove something next week. Snyder'll be on his best after playing poorly this week and Pashos breathing down his neck.

2) From what I've heard, a couple of Seattle's key LBs are nicked up. With reasons 1) and 2) in mind, I see Gore running for close to 100 yards next week.

3) Clements, Spencer, Bly, and Brown all played nice games. I don't see any reason to fear Housh, Branch, and Burleson...although I hope Lawson can keep up with John Carlson, who caught two TDs today.

4) Shaun Hill showed the "magic" again today by leading that 4th-quarter drive. As Clark Judge said tonight, "And that, folks, is why Shaun Hill starts. All he does is win. The guy is 8-3 for the 49ers."

Go Niners!!!
We're going to beat the crap out of them and head to Minnesota 2-0
I would like to see Shaun Hill get into a rhythm throwing the ball against the sea chickens. I hope there is not a let down from the defense. Matt H is still a decent QB.

Hasselback didn't get sacked today. We need to do to him what we did to Warner . . . . and get the offense going.

We have a much better D than the Rams I bet

Hasselbeck isnt going to hold onto the ball for very long, unlike Warner did today.

Im not worried about their WR's, I'm worried about Hasselbeck reading the coverage quickly and getting the ball out of his hands.

This is going to test our pass rushers big time.
