The Seahawks are today the 7th seed with an outside chance making the playoffs. The 49ers game against the Seahawks wasn't decided until Ginn's two return TDs. In the last month, Seattle has beaten Baltimore and last week knocked Chicago out of a playoff berth. Niners hasn't won in Seattle since '08 when the did so in OT. Despite the Niners winning (barely) in the noise of Detroit's stadium, they played an error-prone game of 15 penalties. Seattle's stadium may be louder. Looking at the year's stats, there's not a lot of separation between the two teams. HAWKS

If this is an easy game, the Niners will play even better than they did against Pittsburgh. But they will likely lose if they play like they did In Phoenix against the Cardinals.
This is going to be a much tougher game than some realize.
Most importantly, Seattle is a much better team now than when we played them back in September. Their defense is legit and Lynch is the last guy to get 100 yards against the 49ers, IIRC.
This game is just as important as the Steeler game, and maybe tougher. Jackson is very mobile and will likely be better overall than Ben was last night.
You never want to coast into the playoffs. Build momentum and keep it.
you forget, so are we. When we played them, we'd only had about 4 or 5 weeks of learning the playbook and actually being able to practice it. Lynch might be "Legit" but so are a lot of the running backs we played this year. Plus, Steelers defense is better than the Seahawks.
