Harvin would have a better chance at beating them running crossing patterns across the field or other routes matched up on a LB. We shall see. Will be an interesting aspect to the chess match.
The Seahawks are already well aware of any 49ers strengths and know how to attack them even at their best. That most recent 42-13 game on SNF probably gave the Ravens a blueprint on how to win the Super Bowl. You can rest assured... the Hawks wont be dependent upon scouring fan forums to get ideas about out how to utilize one of the premier players in the league in their already dynamic offense. One simply can't imagine how many more ways the Seahawks can create mismatches with Percy Harvin on an already dangerous team with the elite Russell Wilson. There's going to be multiple ways to dissect that defense with this addition. So, it's only going to be even that much more entertaining. What's funny about all this to me how the 49ers are still being talked about that the team to beat in the NFC West
... which is fine with me because I think that helps keep that chip on the shoulder attitude and further likelihood that the Seahawks will be so fired up for those games that they absolutely destroy the 49ers.
Obviously the team won't look to the fan's site for scheme. My comment was in reference to other fan's thoughts of a formation.
And why wouldn't the Niners be considered the team to beat in the division? They won the division and went farther in the playoffs. Yes, Harvin goes add a weapon, but to think the offense is now unstoppable is fans being fans.
