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.

That game ended with a blowout in the Niners' favor, 37-20, and the team will look to continue this success on this upcoming Sunday night. The Niners as a whole seem to be excited to play a prime time game in front of their fans, and star tight end George Kittle, for one, is as excited as can be. Kittle had this to say on Thursday about the opportunity to play the Packers in front of The Faithful after an extended hiatus: "I mean it was

Rapoport feels Richard Sherman to 49ers 'would be a really good addition'

Could Richard Sherman returning to the San Francisco 49ers be on the horizon for the veteran cornerback? Head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that the two sides had been in contact about the possibility but didn't indicate anything was imminent. Still, it is an intriguing possibility. The 49ers lost their starting cornerback, Jason Verrett, to what appears to be a season-ending ACL injury. That confirmation is expected today. A week ago, the team signed Josh Norman for depth. But a significant injury to one of your best defenders can force you to look at your options. That's what the 49ers are preparing to do. Prayers



49ers-Eagles: Kyle Shanahan says Brandon Aiyuk, Trey Sermon had a good week of practice

Earlier today, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan addressed the media speculation that wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk might be in his doghouse. "No. It's not a doghouse," Shanahan said on KNBR before explaining that the second-year receiver's reduced playing time had more to do with him returning from an earlier injury and the emergence of Trent Sherfield. Shanahan fully expects Aiyuk to earn more playing time as the season moves forward. "I want Aiyuk to get that spot back, but Trent Sherfield doesn't make that easy," the coach added. "He has played at a high level. It's not personal. It's just about guys earning spots." After
