I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that the Niners can't win in Seattle based on that last butt-kicking they took up there. That game was the result of the Niner defense being tired from the previous game in New England and the fact that it was the first game played without Justin Smith in the lineup. I'm also guessing a full off-season for Kaepernick will include a number of strategies for dealing with the noise up there. I expect them to add no-huddle to their bag of tricks next year. No huddle has a tendency to cut down on crowd noise because they have to sustain the noise instead of stopping and then building it. And, it will include a more sophisticated set of hand signals.
objection.. speculation... i'll give you JS being hurt played a huge part.
When I look at that game in Seattle, I see probably the toughest game to win all season. All I'm saying is that Niner fans shouldn't look at that last ass-kicking and think that's a standard model for how things are going to go up there. I see that game as a confluence of the worst possible situations - Niners tired, Niners missing key players, Seahawks playing a great game, etc.
