The new Cold War (re NFC West)

Rathman is right though, until the Seahawks have to shell out the big $$$ for Harvin, they get a better player. But trading 3 picks and taking on a big contract isn't a sustainable way to operate in this league.

THAT I can agree with. He's going to jack up the Seahags cap, and they gave up a 1st and 7th this year and at least a 4th next year for player that plays about 70% of the time, has never played a full season, has never had a 1000 yeard season, and has never had more than 5 rec tds in a season, who is also a headcase and a locker room cancer that whines when he isn't the center of the offense. He's early Moss without the production.

people need to pay attention to your take on percy. sure he may be faster and sure he can return kicks but he is not physical, he can not or will not block and our new man is 100 per cent opposite of percy in the locker room. i am sure that was a factor in the decision to bring him in here. another reason why i think someone like revis is out and if they can work it out, reed may be in. percy is early moss without the production and our new man is everything we wanted or hoped moss would be, in my opinion

Meh....I prefer the term "hereditary enmity" myself (derived from the ancient rivalry of France and Germany), but Seattle and their fans haven't even earned that honor yet, as our rivalry with them isn't even a generation old (like with the cowboys, giants, packers, rams, raiders etc.

I like this take, but the Seahags haven't replaced the Rams yet as our biggest/long term rival in the NFC West.

Thank you, CC. Every once in a while, I can actually makes sense.

This isn't the 49ers playbook on Tecmo bowl. I think it's the Bears
Seattle is without a doubt our toughest threat, period. I would have said that before they got Harvin. They're a **** good football team capable of dominating us at our own games.
Very good post.

Harvin missed 7 games last year. He'll cost mega-$$$ and the Seattle gave up a 1st rounder +.

They got a top tier receiver - he will cause problems.

We got a very good receiver who always seems to get open. Rarely drops the ball and is a VERY tough blocker.

We paid peanuts. We still have 14 picks AND an opportunity to aquire picks to build the dynasty.

Let the War start!

that is more than me. i liked the fact we gave dennis erikson a second year, i liked the nolan hire, i thought ck was not ready to play the game, i figured we would get blown in the first round of the playoffs cuz . we were not playing four quarters of ball at the end of the year and i can never remember the first name of mr cribbs . they call me MISTER CRIBBS ( old school for the kids there to a 1972 move ) oh and i wanted the team to sign david boston in 2006

VISIONQUEST!!!! I can "visualize" that. Boldin won't get bullied around by Browner like the average, prissy WR. He will muscle Browner in return (I assume Sherman will be following Crabs around during this process)
