Good mojo? Seattle loses in first game at Levi’s Stadium

Aug 2, 2014 at 11:12 PM--




The San Jose Earthquakes had the honor of hosting the first game at Santa Clara's brand new Levi's Stadium. 48,765 fans attended the MLS game that would help stadium staff work out the kinks of a live event before that start of the NFL preseason. Their opponent was the Seattle Sounders FC.

For obvious reasons, there is not much love between Bay Area sports fans and Seattle sports fans. The Seahawks happen to be the most hated team among San Francisco 49ers fans and the opposite is true in Seattle.

Perhaps it is a good sign that the first loss at Levi's Stadium was by a Seattle team. The Sounders lost to the Earthquakes 1-0.

Hopefully all Seattle teams will be winless at Levi's Stadium. Now wouldn't that be nice?

The 49ers will host the Denver Broncos in a preseason matchup on August 17. The Seattle Seahawks will visit on Thanksgiving, November 27.

49ers entering NFC title game vs. Eagles in good health

Entering Sunday's playoff matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, the San Francisco 49ers listed only two players as inactive due to injuries. They were quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and cornerback Ambry Thomas. Garoppolo is recovering from a broken foot suffered during Week 13. Thomas is dealing with an ankle injury. Last week, head coach Kyle Shanahan wasn't optimistic about the chances of Garoppolo returning for the NFC Championship Game. "I'd be surprised, but I think it depends on how this whole weekend goes and stuff," Shanahan said. "But I think it's an outside chance." The coach added that Garoppolo has a better chance of suiting up for the Super Bowl, assuming the 49ers make it past the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. However, it's unlikely that

Do you smell that? It's playoff football. It's a time to celebrate. For a few more precious hours, every team in the tournament still has life, still has reason to hope. There are no more guaranteed games, but there's football to be played, and right now is the time to exult in it. No matter who you root for, you can imagine your team finding a way to win, a way to keep playing football, and filling your February with excitement and joy. Right now, there's nothing standing between your team and glory except the vagaries of chance and a well-fought effort this weekend, and hopefully the next. And for those of you who aren't rooting for a team that's made it this far, never fear. 7 of the 14 playoff entrants this year didn't make it into the dance last year. The



49ers' Nick Bosa on zero-sack performance: "I did a good part in the win today"

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Divisional round to advance to the NFC Championship Game next weekend, winning in a 19-12 bout after holding their opponent scoreless over the last 11 minutes of the game. However, their win came without a sack from their star defensive end Nick Bosa, who has now gone without a sack in two consecutive weeks for the first time since Weeks 16 and 17 of the 2021 season, playoffs included. Bosa had only gone three games without a sack in the regular season, but has now missed a sack in two consecutive games, including a zero-pressure game against the Seahawks last weekend. But, zero sacks don't mean zero impact, and Bosa believed that his performance was a good one following San Francisco's



49ers' Deebo Samuel on facing hostile Philly crowd: "No stadium is as loud as ours"

The noise at Levi's Stadium has been off the charts in the San Francisco 49ers' two playoff games. This past Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys was the team's last home game, though. Next, they will travel to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia to face the top-seeded Eagles. While Levi's Stadium crowds have been impressive this season, there are certain venues famous for their loud, passionate fans. Lincoln Financial Field is one of them. One 49ers player didn't sound too concerned about the Philadelphia home crowd. "We know it's going to be loud," wide receiver Deebo Samuel told reporters on Wednesday, "but no stadium is as loud as ours at the end of the day. They're at home, NFC Championship. They're going to be all riled up. We don't really too much feed
