it was " oh theyve only looked good against the Cards and Bills"
now after tonight a whole new batch " they can only win at home" "they won cause they got away with holding every play" " They just took cheap shots all night to hurt our players" " our coach cost us by not running enough"
Just all this stuff to take it from seahawks winning to trying to make it seem like the 49ers just lost it and seahawks didnt do anything.
You lost to St. Louis, Miami, Carolina, SF, Arizona and Detroit on the road...you guys freaking suck outside of your BS stadium. The league seriously needs to bring back the penalty for being too loud at home. Five of those teams HAVE LOSING RECORDS. Your entire record is a joke and the most overhyped team in the NFL. I can't wait till it comes out how Caroll is cheating too...cheaters gonna cheat.
We lost to Carolina now? Wow. We "suck" outside our stadium? Losing close games on the road "sucks". Ok. What do you call getting BLOWN OUT not once, but TWICE this season (once at home, and once tonight on the road)?
Truth is, the Seahawks are a great team at home and slightly above average team on the road. The Seahawks are hot right now, I'll give you that. I think in our stadium the Niners are still the better team and we proved that this year when we won the first game but in your stadium you are the better team. In the end though while your right the Seahawks often play competitvely outside their own arena they are still just not the same team. We have went into Green Bay and New England this year and won. The Seahawks haven't had anything close to a dominant road wins like that. Buffalo does not count as it wasn't a true home game for them. Game was in Toronto. I also believe that as much as losing Vernon and Mannigham hurt the offense, losing Justin Smith was more detrimental, we are just not the same defense without him.
Point is while our depth is apparently questionable we have never lost back to back games under Harbaugh and I don't expect that to change against Arizona. Arizona is just terrible and we've proven that we can hang with some of the big boys in their house and if we can get healthy again, I think that we'll prove it again. Tonights loss will indeed be a wake up call and the niners seem to respond best to win they do lose especially when they get manhandled. See the two games following the Giants game earlier this season. I think the Niners can still make a scare in the playoffs and as big a step as the Seahawks have taken this season their inability to play on the same level away as they do at home will be their achilles heel in the playoffs. For the most part the Seahawks have had a pretty easy road schedule and yet, they have either squeaked by in a couple of them on the road or just been beaten by some subpar teams and in the playoffs who ever they most likely travel to face will not be a subpar team. The Seahawks justb aren't quite their yet. I still see them getting knocked out in the wildcard round.
