It's funny you picked that play, because the Bucs actually pulled that off against Seattle this year. They did it at the goalline for a TD, similar to how Florida used to do it with Tebow.

Yea i'm talking about doing it at the 50 and just let Davis run as fast as he can up the seam and let Gore lob it to him over everybody

Could work, but like all trick plays, comes with inherent risk. You never know what can go wrong.

One thing about Seattle is they love to play cover 3. The short middle is open underneath on many occasions when the MLB drops back in zone coverage, but Wagner usually makes the quick tackle for minimal gain. Who knows? Maybe that play catches them off guard, the MLB crashes down thinking it is run, and we're off to the races.

Hopefully the 49ers can capitalize what they saw on video from the She-hawks loss vs Arizona and that Game vs The Rams in STL.
By the way we ought to say thanks to Richard Sherman.

There's no better bullet board material than "This is another glorfied practice session" I hope they play that clip at the start of briefings and end of tape sessions!
I just have to vent and say that:

I BLOODY HATE THE BLOODY NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME!

Obviously, I love our success in getting to 15 of those things when other franchises (cough, Seahawks, cough) crow that they finally got to their second (OK, and an AFC one). I like even more winning the bloody thing and going on to the SB. But I can't stand the effing tension of the week before, and the game itself is always torture. Even wins are not fun: last year my heartbeat must have gone to 150 at the end. In 1988 I was terrified that the Bears would somehow come back, or that we would collapse in the cold. Even 1989 made me nervous.

Let's face it, they may call it a "championship", but really it's a semifinal. And semifinals are the WORST matches for the fans. Total heartbreakers when you lose them, nobody remembers you being in them, and you can't even semi-console yourself by saying that "well, at least we got to the dance" like when you lose in the final. Bills fans are tortured to be sure, but they are less tortured to Browns fans when they remember the AFCCG losses to the Broncos. Wide Right was cruel, but at least it's better than the Fumble.

Even when you win the bloody thing, you get about 10 seconds of elation and then another two weeks of fretting. I mean, I haven't been able to watch a second of last year's SB, but I can foresee that in perhaps 10-15 years (or February 3 if we win this year ) I MIGHT have a glimpse at it, if only for the "redemption" story. I will never, ever, ever watch the NFCCG losses. 2011 was like a kick in the nuts. 1992 still makes me want to go out and riot when I remember the BS holding call. I don't consider 1990 to be an actual calendar year any more - time for me goes like 1987, 1988, 1989, 1991 for me (and yes, I know that the Disaster happened in calendar year 1991 and not 1990). The 1993 and 1997 capitulations depress me to the point of looking for Prozac.

OK, now I will go into a foetal position until Monday morning.

All the Hawks trolls disappearing

Don't bet on it

Such an inferior sports franchise those Seahacks.
I HATE the waiting. The 2 week wait before the Super Bowl last year was torture.

Its a weird mix of feeling good about the game, and feeling negative. On one hand, were playing our best football of the year, have a totally healthy roster, are coming off 2 huge road playoff wins, and have the past experience to draw from. But on the other hand, we've played so poorly in SEA the last couple years. They dont need to be the better team to win, just because of the atmosphere and fragile momentum. If Kap gets thrown off his game early by that D, everyone will have to hold their breath to see if he can bounce back.

Ultimately I think we escape with the W, but its going to be a battle. Jim Harbaugh describing these SEA games like going in for a root canal is a fitting analogy. Thankfully we'll have 2 weeks to recover.

Seattle is playing their worst football of the season, the OL sucks, Wilson is out of whack right now, and Harvin probably isnt going to play. Lynch might be easier to contain if they cant offset the running game with consistency through the air. It will all come down to what our offense can do against their D.

We're a WAY better team than we were in week 2, but we came into that game so confident, and left in a daze. I cant stomach a repeat of that.

On paper were the better team. If you grade out our 22 starters, plus our kicking/punting game on Pro Football Focus, vs. their 22 and kickers, we have them beat on the season by a full 50 pts total. But the crowd is a big factor that could sway the advantages. Lets hope weve made the proper adjustments to play well up there.
WOW, I just noticed something huge looking at those last two games! -In the week 2 game our recievers were just getting intimidated/pushed around by Seattle's backfield, expecting the refs to do something about it, putting the timing/confidence off on the offense. The second time around, our wide-receivers were playing defensive right back at them.

Ex-players coached by Pete Carroll will you that he trains his pupils to intimate refs, forcing them into a corner of throwing 7 rags a game, cause they know refs are scared to call a game-changing penalty. Well... now we're f**king giving to them, straight back. Boldin started this trend during the first Rams game. Our guys aren't intimidated anymore, and since they're confident, they're timing is on, and hard for a ref not to throw a flag on their D. Michael Crabtree has been taking nose dives the moment Sherman got a hold of his jersey, flag always called.

Creating a locker room culture of cheating attests to Carl's lowlife character.

We used that when we beat them at our house already. Have to come up with something new Bozo. Go Niners!!

I remember calling for our guys to fight back right after that game and entering the second contest. It seems they were thinking the exact same thing judging by the way our wideouts played with Crab and Q on the field simultaneously. We now have the physicality to fight back against their mugging DBs. I remember how ATL fought them out wide and inside with Julio, Roddy and Tony G. They were much too physical for SEA to take away. We got 3 physical targets as well and it is high time we played up to it as well! SEA has a great defense but so do we and our offensive personnel is much better suited to attack them than theirs

That's good to hear. We have to level the playing field. Boldin, Crabtree, and now Patton have all shown they can make contested catches against tight coverage. They're also not afraid to get physical.
If both teams continue to play as they have for the past few weeks we win this game by at least a touchdown.

We need that tingle more than ever.
