Seriously though, i think this is a game that we should all expect to win.
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.
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.
