RW > CK
Seattle Def > SF Def

SF WRs > Sea WRs
Conclusion: Easy win for Seattle
I hate to say this given how much I love the Niners! GO NINERS!
Well, despite the fact that you are an obvious troll (btw, it's "Go Hawks!" not "Go Niners!"...Niner fans generally don't resort to that type of cliche at the end of their posts...) I will offer the following rebuttal:
Kap > Wilson. There was a time in the middle of this season that it looked pretty clear that Wilson was playing better than Kap. However, lately (to the chagrin of many) the tide has turned. Kap has been playing much better and Wilson has struggled. At this moment the stats would indicate that Kap is playing better than Wilson right now.
Defense. About equal. Perhaps a slight nod to Seattle, considering they are at home, but really, the Niners have been playing at an elite level the second half of this year. No way you can simply chalk this one up in the win column.
Lynch and Gore...well, both RB's have cooled off down the stretch. Suffice to say that San Fran finished 3rd this year and Seattle finished 4th this year in rushing yards. Looks pretty close to me.
SF WR's > Seattle WR's. That is a no-brainer.
Harbaugh > Carrol. Harbaugh's only equal is Bilicheck. He is an elite coach.
Factor in that the Niners are hot, and that they are as good on the road as they are at home. Yes, Seattle is a tough place to play, but you have never played the Niners at their best in the Clink. The Niners are and will be at their best. Good luck!
