Personally, I don't see how this can be. I know the Sea-buzzards beat us bad when we last played but lets face it, they beat a very tired team, who just beat Brady and his high powered offense that threw 50+ times (please correct me if I'm wrong on that), and a team who had to travel from New England to Seattle in a week. Plus I really feel the Sea-buzzards snuck up on a lot of teams. But with them having a much tougher schedule this coming season (while we have an easier schedule) I think they regress. I really think the Sea-buzzards are grossly over-rated, and the 49ers under-rated. And I think this lack of respect for us is a good motivational tool for JH & Co.
Contenders win on the road. Pretenders don't.
49ers: 5 - 3
Seahawks: 3 - 5
On the other hand, if the Seahawks get home field in the playoffs, that would make all the difference for them, because they are a different team at home.
That's a great point I forgot to add. With a tougher schedule the "12th man" won't be able to save them. 3 road wins won't cut it in 2013. They aren't sneaking up on no one.
