"What once was a not-so-friendly rivalry between San Francisco and Seattle has turned into something more like an arms race, with the Seahawks making the first bold move by adding wide receiver Percy Harvin.
Now it's up to San Francisco to counter, and this just in: The 49ers on Monday acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin from Baltimore, a guy who helped beat them in Super Bowl XLVII. What's more, they have five of the first 93 choices in this year's draft and 14 overall, including three expected compensatory choices. That gives them the freedom to respond to Seattle, with speculation centered on New York Jets' cornerback Darrelle Revis.
All I know is that Seattle and San Francisco seem to be positioning themselves for a two-team race ... and I'm not talking about the NFC West. I'm talking about the NFC, period."
