In my opinion, as much as I hate to admit, the Seahawks will go to the Super Bowl. The 9ers is not a bad team per se, but is just not good enough to compete for the top spot. If I am not wrong, the Seahawks have not lost a single regular season game ever since they beat the Bears on the road last year, that is 12 games in a row. That means something. And if you are talking about head-to-head match-up, that's even worse, they didn't just beat us, they beat us down, not just once but twice, there is just no other way to say it. I feel Kap is intimidated when he plays them. If we lose the December game at home, there will be no more excuse from us, but to crown the Seahawks as the new King Of NFC West.

Once again, I would be esctatic if I am wrong, but if I have to be totally honest with you and be truthful of how I look at the current situation, that is just how I feel.

In the words of the Great (heh) Dennis Green: If you wanna crown their a$$es, CROWN EM!!

God grief, man. The Seattle losses really have you shook, don't they? It's time to get over it. Both those games are over.

Remember a long time ago in a galaxy far away when the Texans had the Seahawks on the ropes? Then Matt Schaub decided to do a Matt Schaub impression and then...well. Some storm troopers showed up and everything went black...

Seriously, though. Even if you do crown them this season, is that really a good reason to give up on OUR team? Would the Seahawks winning a SB this year curse us for the rest of the franchise's history? Lighten up and have a beer. Smoke some weed (in Colorado). Enjoy the ride that is the San Francisco 49ers.

it might not, but then again a Seahawk SB might cause the universe to collapse ending life as we know it

In that case, we better figure out a way to get Daniels back.

I agree. Cooper, of all the players people are talking about in this thread, seems to be the biggest loss. by far

I would really have liked us to keep him.

I would rather have Cooper more than BJ Daniels, Cam Johnson, and Lavelle Hawkins combined.

I go to into each season not expecting much. I start each season with two major goals: a winning season and making the play-offs.

And I start the season hoping, not expecting, that the team will achieve these goals.

The moves involving BJ Daniels, Cam Johnson, and Lavelle Hawkins should not, by any stretch of the imagination, be causing you this much despair.

But, as you know, it is a free world and each person has the right to make choices. If I were you, I would stick with the 49ers.

Everyone else is not bummed by losing Daniels.

I am more bothered by losing Cooper than I am by the loss Daniels., Hawkins, and Johnson combined.

If I'm not mistaken, Ried was MOSTLY playing the deep ball - support over the top. If you'd seen him or heard his name a lot in that situation it would mean that Tavon Austin was destroying us down the field.


Is this a different assignment for him than his first two games? No need to beat a dead horse with this. Just am hoping he is 100% after his hit.

Why do you guess that Haralson is hurt? I far as I can ascertain he has played in all four of the Saints games. He started two.

The team seems to be rotating players more on the defensive line.

Justin Smith has played only 77% of the defensive snaps this year; McDonald has played 83.5% percent of the snaps.

Demarcus Dobs has played 24.3% of the defensive snaps and Tony Jerod-Eddie has played 20% of the snaps.

Dorsey has played 43.3% of the defensive snaps since the injury to Ian Williams.


I heard/read somewhere he was hurt. How do the OLB's stack up?

Seattle are a very good team and have a very good chance of doing damage in the playoffs, athough it's way too early to talk SB for anyone - all teams are one injury away from disaster. I find all this Seattle-related angst in this forum bizarre to say the least. Let's get our act sorted out first and get to the playoffs, and quit worrying about Seattle. Anyway, even if they do win it all, I would bet good money it's not going to be because they tend to sign our castoffs.

I mean, jeez, I liked Daniels as well, but this Nate Davis-like moaning and gnashing of teeth is hard to comprehend. It's all very simple: like about every other NFL team out there, we have a problem with backup QB. If the starter misses time, teams hope to get around .500 out of the backups starts. More often (recent history: Chicago, Houston, even the Raiders) the season is a writeoff because the backup doesn't cut it. Don't judge by Kaep last year, he was brought in exactly to be the QB of the future and he just got his chance earlier than planned.

So, the team have been trying all sorts of moves to address the back QB issue as much as it can be addressed: we traded (cheaply) for McCoy who had made actual NFL starts. He doesn't seem to be the answer. We tried Wallace for the same reason - and cut him for the same reason. Now we're bringing Skelton in. It's clear that management puts a whole lot of importance on having a veteran backup, and one that has actually started actual NFL games at that. A developmental QB is a luxury for their purposes. The PS is the place for such a player, and I'm sure they meant to put Daniels there if he cleared waivers. He didn't. Time to move on.

Cam: when season started everyone commented how stacked we were at OLB compared to last year, particularly if you count Tank coming back shortly. The Aldon debacle left a big unexpected hole there, but (1) it's not as if anyone expected his troubles to flare up so spectacularly; (2) Cam would still not have been the answer.

Hawkins: I was disappointed at him being cut, and I do think that of all the cuts he would have been the most help if he had stayed on. Kyle Williams (whom I usually support) has been a big disappointment both at WR and PR, although at least he holds on to the ball. Perhaps Hawkins would have been a better alternative, but that's all hindsight.

Our management sometimes gets unjustified credit for stacking the team with talent, when a lot of our stars were brought in during the previous, much-maligned regimes (both draft and FA - Justin anyone?). Similarly, they get lots of unjustified flak for not being able to sign every FA out there and not keeping every project in the world, as if there was no cap to fit under and no 45-man active squad to fit everyone in.

The only recent move that I liked was when Baalke owned up to his mistakes and traded AJ Jenkins away for Jon Baldwin, but that's it.

The drafting of Reid, Lemonier, and McDonald were good moves, weren't they?

The move to get Lattimore was a good gamble. It might not work out, but it was a good move.

The free agent pick-up of Glen Dorsey looks almost brilliant at this point.

It is what it is.

I don't think Seattle had me shook, rather I think they had the 9ers shook. While our D played OK, Kap and the offense were obviously "shook". There is no excuse out of the 4 teams that they beat, we were the only team which failed to score a single TD. Even the Jaguars scored 17 at CLink when we only scored 3.

You could say the Texans nearly beat them. But, as much as they struggled in the Texans or the Panthers game, they still managed to pulled out with a W, that is what you call resolve. And our other loss to the Colts ? It was also a complete beatdown.

You can call it crowning, a prediction or whatever you wish. But, it has nothing to do with "giving up" on the 9ers. The 9ers will do OK, they will still get into the playoffs and may be win a wildcard game or even a divisional game. To most teams, that is not too shabby. It doesn't change the fact when I switch on the TV, I will still be supporting the 9ers.

But, some humility might go a long way in recognizing the merits of your opponents. Perhaps instead of laughing at your fellow 9ers fans in seeing what's going on, it might be more productive to discuss what the 9ers need to do in order to beat the Seahawks, be it in tactics and/or personnel. Just a suggestion.

Won't happen because the Seahawks aren't the Broncos.

I searched the internet for any indication that Haralson was hurt. I could not find a thing.

Haralson's play with Saints seems to be about the same as the play of Lemonier/Skuta. It is hard to judge at this point.

The take on the Haralson trade is that the trade was made to give a good soldier the opportunity to be a starter.

Haralson will be a free agent next year. By trading him, the team gave him a chance to start now--and earn a good free agent contract.

I have no problem with the trade.

Yes. Without a doubt this notion bears consideration.
