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.

The 49ers Must Pursue Deshaun Watson

By Brian Renick
Jan 10, 2021

The smoke that began rising on Twitter earlier this week about Deshaun Watson being unhappy in Houston has consistently gotten thicker as the week has progressed. Typically, where there's smoke, there's fire. The 49ers absolutely must pursue all avenues available to them to bring Watson to Santa Clara. He would instantly transform this 49ers squad into a perennial Super Bowl contender. Watson finished the 2020 season as the second-highest rated passer in the league behind likely MVP Aaron Rodgers. He accomplished this on a team that was relatively bereft of talent on the offensive side of the ball, and was mired in a terrible coaching situation (Bill O'Brien was fired after four straight losses to start the season). Despite the dysfunction, Watson still led the

Saleh, Jets Could Thwart 49ers' Plans to Re-Sign Secondary

By Levin T. Black

The San Francisco 49ers don't have a secondary at this time. That's not an exaggeration. As of right now, the only player from the secondary to play significant minutes who is not a pending free agent is free safety Jimmie Ward. Here's a list of the players from the secondary who played at least 100 snaps in 2020 but would have to get new contracts if they were to play for the 49ers again: Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, Jaquiski Tartt, K'Waun Williams, Emmanuel Moseley, Akhello Witherspoon, Marcell Harris, Dontae Johnson, Jamar Taylor. Only one of these is not an unrestricted free agent. Moseley is an exclusive restricted free agent, meaning the 49ers will be able to re-sign him if they choose to. As long as the 49ers offer him a league minimum contract, Moseley is

How Much is Too Much for the 49ers to Acquire Deshaun Watson From the Texans?

By Levin T. Black
Jan 17, 2021

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson isn't happy. This has been known for a while at this point with reports of Watson not returning calls and being upset over the team's hiring process for both the general manager and the head coach. Watson was told he would get to have input but it's been reported that Watson either never got the chance or the input he gave was completely ignored by the Texans. The possibility that Watson could force his way out went from possible to a near lock on Sunday. ESPN's Adam Schefter dropped a bomb that will likely dominate sports talk all off-season. It came via a
