Gonna be a tough game. I think folks are really underestimating how good Seattle and the cards have been playing the last several weeks. Seattle has a good run game and good as run defense. They got 2 very good safeties as well. The Niners were on the verge of blowing that 1st game vs Seattle this year. Baldwin beat them on a deep pass. Ted Ginn saved the day.
Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas are the best pair of safeties in the league, and it isn't even close. Thomas is playing at an All Pro level and Chancellor at 6'3" 235 hits like a freight train and should go to the Pro Bowl.
Also Richard Sherman (6'3" 195) and Brandon Browner (6'4" 225) are the biggest CBs in the league, and they support the run defense VERY well in addition to defending the pass well. That secondary is playing very well right now.
Yep, gonna be tough.
