What exactly about Seattle's game today was so bad?

I'm not talking ANY smack either. Just attempting a quality football conversation. No one with football knowledge will debate that the 49er's have possibly the best OL and a top DL in the game. SEA's OL and DL are banged up and average. Just curious where the confidence comes from.
Seahawks put up 12 points against some team I'm never heard of + Cam Newton. Panthers may have a solid defense and the schedule may not have fallen favorably for Seattle. According to the talking heads, Seattle is a bona fide Super Bowl favorite out of the gate. I don't think I've displayed an excessive amount of confidence by pointing out that Seattle played poorly against a sub-par team in their season opener. Even if they had to wake up early, that's not championship caliber. I'm not playing down Seattle, especially at home...but I stand by my earlier observation. I'm not sure they don't go undefeated at home again but, man, they suck it up on the road.
