Gameday: San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks

Sep 15, 2013 at 12:01 AM--




Tonight, the San Francisco 49ers will travel to Seattle to play the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field. The 49ers and Seahawks each won their home matchup against the other in 2012.

The most recent matchup was a 42-13 win by the Seahawks in Seattle on December 23 of 2012. This series will continue the ongoing rivalry of Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll, a rivalry that started in college. It will also feature a showdown between two of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the league in the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick and the Seahawks' Russell Wilson.

Another interesting matchup to watch will be Anquan Boldin and whoever lines up across from him. Will it be the Seahawks' best corner Richard Sherman or will the 49ers try to avoid Sherman by lining Boldin up all over the field as they did against the Packers last week? Boldin had 13 catches for 208 yards and a touchdown against Green Bay.


Last week, the 49ers (1-0) beat the Green Bay Packers 34-28. The Seahawks (1-0) also won their season opener 12-7 over the Carolina Panthers.

For the 49ers, RB LaMichael James (knee) is listed as questionable. For the Packers, DT Jordan Hill (biceps) is out. CB Brandon Browner (hamstring) and S Jeron Johnson (hamstring) are doubtful. DE Chris Clemons (knee) is questionable. DE Cliff Avril (hamstring), T Michael Bowie (shoulder), DT Tony McDaniel (groin), DT Brandon Mebane (ankle), WR Sidney Rice (knee) and TE Luke Willson (oblique) are probable.

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.

Where ESPN ranks the 49ers in NFL future power ranking

ESPN recently asked its panel of "experts" — Jeremy Fowler, Louis Riddick, Seth Walder, and Field Yates — to rate each NFL team's quarterback situation, remaining (non-QB) roster, drafting ability, front office, and coaching. Using those ratings, it then ranked all 32 NFL teams on how well they are positioned for the future, creating a power ranking based on projection over the next three seasons. The Kansas City Chiefs came in at No. 1 with an overall score of 88.5. The Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers came in at No. 2 with a score of 88.1. The San Francisco 49ers were the highest-ranked



PFF projects Jimmy Garoppolo as a 49ers starter, Dee Ford as a player to watch

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to be the Week 1 starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when they travel to Detroit to play the Lions. However, some wonder how quickly rookie Trey Lance will get up to speed and if the No. 3 overall pick could show enough in training camp to create a difficult decision for head coach Kyle Shanahan. Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus projected the starting lineups for all 32 NFL teams, and one of the biggest 49ers-related takeaways is that he has Garoppolo firmly situated as the team's starter, despite the analytics site stating in the past that it holds Lance in high regard and believes he will find NFL success. Lance is still a
