Do you want the 49ers to kick off the season @ Seattle on TNF?

Since Sherman keeps talking smack to Crabs the NFL will probably make it the opening day game. I dont like it but oh well.

You would rather watch a Den Sea snoozefest?

I really hope we play in Seattle in the first 2 weeks.
I hope we do get them the first week. Let's put these punks back in their place.
Even though they lost that first one last year, I think early September in Seattle is a lot better venue than a wet December game. And I like giving the Niners an opportunity to send a message right away. They can win up there. They know they can win up there. Go up there and spoil the Super Bowl champion's season opener. That would be sweet. And if the Niners don't get it done, nobody's going to write them off because it's in Seattle. It's the Seahawks who have everything to lose in a scenario like that, not the Niners.

There is a point to this. If you think about it, the last 2 regular season games have been in a downpour and I mean a downpour. The NFCC was NOT like that. It was much nicer out and the results were much different in how things executed. In addition, there is the "what do we have to lose?" deal. If we win? Fantastic start, if they lose? Big deal, we will get them again later in the season at home. I like our chances. Of course, last year it was a downpour in week 2, which is not the norm, in fact the September games are usually in weather very much like the Bay Area.

At first I was thinking it was the last thing I would want, but crake has a great point. Screw 'em, teams are going to lose a game here and there and there is a lot more impact from winning than there is losing. Nice.

no way they do a SB rematch. SEA/SF or SEA/Dallas or SEA/NE.

How often do you get a Super Bowl rematch the very next season? It's happening! The only other possibility is Sf/sea and the nfl won't put sf back to back sunday nighters
I really don't think you guys understand what it takes to win a football game in Seattle these days. It's a daunting task and there's a reason why even elite QB's like Tom Brady and Drew Brees fail in there.

To be the opponent in their home opener is a suicide mission. Have we forgotten how we've gotten basically blown out, and peppered with injuries when we go up there?! VD's concussions, Delanie's broken jaw, Ian Williams ankle, Iupati's knee, Bowman's leg?!?! Rememeber?!?!


I swear only a homer could have such confidence.

No of course not, but to root for the scenario to happen is silly!

I wonder if the same people rooting for it are the same ones who wanted to travel to Seattle for the NFCCG instead of playing at candlestick.

I think Sherman secretly has a crush on Crabtree. It's the only reason I can think of as to why he continues to mention someone that never talks about him.

Though, I'm sure Darelle Revis is happy Sherman found another boo thang to harass.

F**k it I'll suit up put me in coach. Give me Kyle Williams and AJ Jenkins I'll light it up. The MRI machine that is.
Yes.

The best week to play Thursday night football is week 1. There is no short week that way. (Unless it's played after a Bye week).
