SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS SEATTLE SEAHAWKS GAMEDAY THREAD (Week 2)

Originally posted by HawkSince79:
Lots of upset posts here, and it is understandable. I did want to reply really quick and say a few things:

1. You guys really need to evaluate your opponents correctly. You play the Rams twice again this year, and had little luck against them last year. You also play the Saints on the road. Don't call it 15-1 on pure love of your team. You play the Seahawks at home, and while you may revel in that, we will have Percy Harvin, Chris Clemons, and Bruce Irvin in that game, so don't just write us off. Sorry to say it: 42-13; 29-3.

2. The game tonight against the Hawks, forum members said (paraphrasing) that you do not fear the crowd at CLink. While that is easy to do in your armchair, your team was rattled by 136 decibel noise in their faces and ears. It matters. Next season, remember that.

3. The right approach to this game is that you lost to a good football team. You are not football gods that everyone bows down to. You are a great football team as well, but you have to play like it, just like the other 31 teams have to. You cannot just put on uniforms and expect a win. I love Joe Montana, but he isnt playing for you today, and if he was, you would likely never win a game in today's NFL.

Love you guys, you are great fierce fans that love their team (just like us) but hey... take a moment to tip your hat to the efforts of your opponents now and then. Every dog loses, any given Sunday, its a game of inches and defenses.

Take care Niner Nation! You guys will be in the playoffs, I just hope the road goes through CLink for that.

Peace :)

Nice post. It's not just us fans, but our coaches need to eat some humble pie. I felt the offensive gameplan was indicative of the coaches' stubbornness, and they did not position the players in the best way to succeed.

It wouldnt be the first time... Dont get me wrong, Roman is the best OC we've had in quite some time, but he's not god either... the dude has his off weeks where its like wtf were you thinking.


We fell into their trap, we lost our composure we got beat in just about every aspect. Its not the end of the world though, just gotta prepare for next week and do our thing. The seahawks will lose eventually, its not a big deal. If anything I'm glad its over so we can move on for at least a few months.

Agreed fellas. We'll get another shot at Seattle later this year. Now on to more pressing matters. Hopefully we regroup and defend home turf against Indy.
Thanks dude.

I think fans tend to lose sight of the fact that all NFL teams are stacked with the best talent from the college ranks, and while some players get more time in the spotlight or on the positive side of the media, it all comes down to understanding that the product on the field is always the best of the best, and in the cases of SF and Seattle... both teams are blessed with talent that is a cut above the rest, but at the same time - are just as human as the others. :)

You guys brought your gameplan tonight, and the cards fell a different way. There are 14 more games to play... you guys have a lot of wings to eat, beer to drink, and cheers to be had. In essence that is what the NFL is all about!

Till the playoffs... then screw you guys! (Kidding) :D
I keep reading about how Seattle mugs our WRs. But they've been doing that to us for the last 3 games. This means the refs will not call these borderline penalites and it's time for our WRs to adjust. Jerry Rice said to not only work on your routes, but learn how to get off the line of scrimmage.
Fair game for the first 5 yards. Remember that. Outside of that, there is back and forth contact, and Seattle does push the limit of that contact... But its not correct to say you have angels for receivers that do no wrong and run routes without causing any DB havok. To act or think as such is silly. If they call Seattle's contact, they would have to call the offenses contact as well - thus why Seattle would elect to take their chances. The contact exists on both sides of the ball anyhow.

I know that. I'm saying if the refs aren't throwing the flags, the 49ers have to adjust, and us 49er fans stop whining about the no calls.

I think the big thing for us as fans is that we know you guys have a great team, we also think we have a team that can beat you but we've been out coached the last 2 games and it's disappointing.
Per the SF Chron: The Seahawks' fans set a Guinness World Record for crowd noise, reaching 131.9 decibels. The previous record of 131.7 decibels was set during a soccer match in Turkey in 2011.

That was the first time they broke it. A later reading registered at 136.6

I didn't even watch the game. I turned it off after the suspension. I just had a feeling it was going to be one of those games.
I was wrong, we did give up a safety. Had to turn it off at the half, knew it was over, couldnt bear the thought of listening to the announcers and SEA fans. Terrible loss, hope the team and coaches learn from this. Thats two in a row to Pete, in case you are listening Jim. lol
It is time for the week 3 thread moderators
Seabags fans thanks for the pep talk, but honestly you may have beaten us 42-14, and 29-3 in the last few games. However that doesn't mean s**t when it comes down the postseason. Keep thinking you are building a dynasty lol. Trust me the wheels will come falling off sooner or later.
