49ers 23 – Seahawks 10
I know I’m going to get a lot of crap here after I say this, but the 49ers need a real QB and a real OC. Yes, I know Hill is 9-3 as a starter and 6-0 at home. But the guy can’t throw, can’t elude the pass rush, and looks like the Dan Quissenberry of the NFL. Today the victory goes to Frank Gore and the Defense. Gore accounted for 246 of the 49ers 379 yards.
He had two huge runs which basically put the game away. It was comical seeing Hill and Raye try and run the offense when Gore wasn’t out there.
The defense played great, held the Seahawks to 283 yards on the day. Allowing only 66 yards rushing. Next week will be a good test when they take on Adrian Peterson. Patrick Willis, Nate Clements, Dashon Goldson, Justin Smith, Ray McDonald are just some of the names that stand out, but overall another great outing by the defense. It is clear they have taken on Singletary’s persona out there.
The 49ers are 2-0 within the division and alone at top of the NFC West, but let’s not get to excited. Back in 2006 they also started out 2-0, but thankfully that was with Nolan at the helm and it’s clear after these first two games, this isn’t Nolan’s team.
