A lot of defeatist talk surrounding Seattle at Centurylink.
Look at what the Patriots, Packers, and Saints have done there. Just need to have a more in sync short passing game and involvement with tight ends.
To continue allowing teams to man up and allow that to be a problem is a recipe for another disaster in the post season. I'm confident we will get it sorted out.
In fact, I think it's more important that the 49ers be the best they can be than necessarily have home field advantage. The best 49ers team I've seen (last year, NE, GB on the road come to mind) can beat anybody.
Having home field advantage without that certainty won't be a guarantee of victory against Seattle.
Let's see what Manningham and Crabtree bring back to this O.
I agree, with your whole post but specifically the bolded.
Seattle can be beat at home. We had a chance on SNF, but our offense was playing schizo at the time. with our return to our roots, and with a healthy team we can beat them there. They had 5 giveaways against the Titans and won. Imagine what we'd do to them if we had 5 takeaways in the game.
Seattle does not scare me and never will. They've won two straight home games against us and now everybody thinks they're invincible. We were winning in Seattle with Smith as our QB, I'm 100% certain we can do it with Kap if we have the right game plan.
Also, I think NO can win there AND I think GB could too. Seattle is a great team no doubt, but they are not invincible.
