I love how the guy writes "I know, the Seahawks beat these guys silly on Dec. 23." and then dismisses the relevance of it with this:
The 49ers, who’d already clinched a playoff spot and were one win from wrapping up the NFC West Division, had little on the line at CenturyLink Field, and played as if nothing (nor anybody) was on the line.
Which is just a weak argument. And then proceeds to worship the 49ers as assured of having beaten Seattle if we advanced to face them.
Just summarizing the article for everyone so they don't have to flatter this writer with page hits.
