49ers dominate Seahawks...again: Rapid reactions

While the performance wasn't quite as dominant as what the San Francisco 49ers put on film a week ago, the 28-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks was good enough for the team to improve to 10-3 on the season.

The 49ers offense generated several big plays, and the defense came up with some timely sacks and takeaways to send the Seahawks to a fourth-straight loss.

  • Did the 49ers break the Eagles? I sure hope so because the 49ers currently have the number-one seed in the NFC. That comes with a first-round bye, which would be nice for a team that plays as violently as the 49ers.
  • From now on, anyone who says Brock Purdy is a dink-and-dunk QB who would be nothing without his weapons gets throat-punched. Dink and dunk quarterbacks don't throw for 368 yards.

  • Speaking of McCaffrey, he's pretty good.

  • If you want to see something really impressive, watch that McCaffrey run again. This time, watch Brandon Aiyuk. No block, no rock.
  • By the way, Aiyuk went over 1,000 receiving yards for the second straight season.

  • George Kittle surpassed 6,000 career receiving yards.
  • It was good to see Mason get that early touchdown. I have 49ers fans asking me almost every week (in the 49ers mailbag) why Mason doesn't play more.
  • How many times did Nick Bosa get flagged for being offsides? He's such a slouch—even with his one-and-a-half sacks in the game.
  • This wasn't Ronnie Bell's best game.
  • Ambry Thomas isn't near as good when Ward isn't on the field.
  • Clelin Ferrell had a good game. He seemed very active.
  • Deebo Samuel continues his assault on opposing defenses. He's such a valuable weapon.
  • The 49ers offense is incredible. The team no longer has to be carried by the defense.

  • Fred Warner got in on the record-breaking, as well. Can we make the case that he's the best player on defense? I realize Bosa plays on defense. But man, Warner is incredible.

  • This is the best and most complete 49ers team since the 1994 team. I realize Jim Harbaugh had some great teams, but those offenses were never this good. And I know the 1997 and 1998 teams were good, but those defenses weren't as good as this one.
  • D.K. Metcalf is a crybaby. He sure has a short fuse.
  • Per Matt Maiocco, of NBC Sports Bay Area, the 49ers and Jason Verrett have agreed to a reunion that will have the veteran cornerback joining the team's practice squad.

Up next for the 49ers will be the Arizona Cardinals, who are coming off of a bye. The Cardinals will be more rested than the 49ers, but San Francisco has already opened up as a double-digit favorite.

By Marc Adams
Feb 28

It's been a quiet couple of weeks for the San Francisco 49ers. Other than firing defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, and that little Super Bowl thing, there hasn't been much going on. But this week kicks off the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and free agency is only a couple of weeks away. So things will soon pick up. GM John Lynch spoke with reporters at the Combine on Tuesday. And while he didn't give a lot of new information, there were still some highlights to discuss. So we opened up the 49ers Webzone Mailbag to see what questions you had about the team. Let's jump in and take a look. Who are you hoping for (as defensive coordinator)? - Brian J. I think we are all hoping for some big name from the outside, but I don't expect that to

By David Bonilla
Feb 28

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
