If you are looking for a gameday preview article that breaks down how the offensive line will play vs the defensive line, stop reading now and go to ESPN or NFL.com. I’m not going to bore you with X’s and O’s and crap like that. I’m just gonna lay it out for you on my thoughts for this game…
Let me start off by saying I can’t stand the Seattle Seahawks, from their midget quarterback to their head coach who looks like Droopy Dog. I hate them with a passion, almost as much as the Cowboys…almost.
Now that I have that out of the way, here is a quick look on what needs to be done.
Run the ball. That’s it, it is that simple. The numbers show that when Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter carry the ball 20+ times combined the 49ers win. How hard is that.
Now I know the Seahawks will put everyone in the box and make Alex Smith beat them with his arm, which is fine. I don’t expect Vernon Davis, Manningham, Crabtree or Moss to be shut down.
On the defensive side of the ball, I have a feeling the defense is going to come out pissed. They allowed a 100 yard rusher last week and Matt Millen already called out Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman on their performance against the Giants. An NFC West opponent, primetime, in their house. That doesn’t bode well for the Seahawks.
Marshawn Lynch? Not worried there…well unless he’s been drinking.
Russell Wilson, the second coming, well maybe the third, since RGIII has already been annointed Jesus by the media. I do not want to spend that much time on him, but if anyone has watched him play. He sucks. The only good thing about him is his ability to throw the ball deep in the air and hope a Seahawk catches it.
Finally Pete Carroll. Perhaps one of the coaches in the NFL I can’t stand the most. I’m not looking forward to the cameras panning in on him and seeing those doppy looks he’ll have. I so hope Harbaugh runs up the score on him.
I’m hoping the 49ers beat the crap out of the Seahawks, will it happen? Probably not. I envision trips to the redzone only resulting in 3’s. Times when the 49ers can put the game away only to falter. They’ll keep the Seahawks in the game all the way until the end. They’ll pound the ball on the ground, settle for 3’s and win 17-15.
Now I wonder if Roman and Harbaugh have figured out the whole Kaepernick carousel…guess we’ll soon find out.
