  • Yup. You heard it here first (from a 49er fan anyways (actually, plently 49ers fans on this board have revealed their doubts regarding a 49ers win)).

    Wilson is legit. Our Defense has trouble stopping competent QBs. Especially when the QB has time to scan the field. Sure, I expect the 49ers to routinely collapse the pocket on Wilson. But Wilson knows how to escape, and he is the best in the league when throwing on the run. Doesn't bode well for our D.

    In terms of offense, you guys are too good at the CLINK. Kap will struggle to get the play in and, most importantly, he will struggle to orchestrate the complex motions our offense runs. Our WRs will be buried by your secondary. I can't see Boldin doing well against Sherman. And Kyle Williams' only threat is downfield, but ET is more than capable of breaking up the big pass play. You guys will double and even triple team Davis.

    I think the only way the 49ers have a chance is if Kap targets players like TE Vance McDonald, FB Bruce Miller, or 3rd WR Patton (he only had a handful of snaps against GB).

    Honestly, I don't see a victory here. Probably something like 31-17 Seattle. Hopefully it will be a clean, injure free game though

  • I think the Hawks will win, but I always pick the Hawks to win at home.

    I do expect this game to be much much closer than last year's 49'er beat down at home though, especially if Kaep doesn't turn the ball over. So I expect a more conservative game plan out of Harbaugh than he brought in last year. He's not going to put too much on Kaepernick's plate, expect a lot of running and playing the field position game unless you get behind early.

    Im not buying this as a fair rivalry if the fans are acting like this. Its like chemical warfare.

    lol.

    It's being realistic. That home field advantage is good for at least one touchdown in point differential every game. The NFL has never seen anything like it, except maybe Lambeau Field in winter during the late 90s. The fans are a huge part of it, but the stadium itself is so perfect for acoustics, and now there is such a specter about it that it even has an additional mental effect that only compounds things more.

  • If the Niners hope to compete in this game, it will lie on Frank Gores shoulders to do so. Though I am sure Harbaugh has plenty of film on our secondary, not a lot he can do to counter that omnipresent force. Kaepernick will be hard pressed to get anything long going, so that leaves him to either dink and dunk or to run the ball with either himself or Gore. If he maintains his composure and doesn't try to force something into Boldin or Davis he should be alright. If he does lose composure, god help him! Gore has always been solid against us but like my comment on our secondary the Hawks have plenty of Film on these guys too, so I can only assume that Dan Quinn has been emphasizing the containment this week. Our Oline is the biggest area of concern at the moment and I am sure Harbaugh will try to take advantage of this but ultimately I think it is going to be an area of major improvement after our last outing. LSS I think this will be a tighter game than last fall but I still see us winning this game by 7.

  • Just the fact that Justin Smith is healthy this time tells me it won't be a blowout like before, but I think you're right about most of that. Clink is a hard place to play and Kaep just looked straight out lost on offense. He probably won't look quite as bad this time, but I don't see him commanding the offense good enough to pull off a win.

    No way Boldin gets as open as he did against GB either, even if they move him around like Carolina did with Smith. Sherman isn't the only DB who can cover and Boldin isn't exactly known for his ability to get separation. I don't know what GB's defense was doing, but it really dropped the ball on covering Boldin.

  • If a team ever takes a dive in the regular season (to preserve) it will happen here. Honestly not being able to communicate at all is dangerous for a team. Not saying a team can’t come in and win, but they can’t do it conventionally any more. Only shot is to take huge risk early and try to get the Hawks to play from behind, and the fans to calm a bit (good luck with that) I actually feel bad for other teams…a little bit. And this experience is going to suck for the 9ers. # 12 is going to eat your team.

    Seriously do you think Kaepernick will sign a Dolphins cap for me?

    I think it'll be a closer game than that, but for the most part I agree.

    Going into that game in Seattle...thats a tall order.

    I'm predicting another season of the home team wins. Divisional split. If the Niners do win in Seattles back yard tho....that would be HUGE.

    If you win, you get to rub it in our faces under the guise of: "I never thought."

    And if you lose, you can avoid eating crow.

    Don't count on sweeping the rest of the NFCW. Cards with Palmer look entirely different and Bradford has weapons. Could this be a year when every NFC West team goes 1-1 against the division? I wouldn't be surprised...which is surprising.

    LOL.

    If thats how you choose to see it.

    No...seriously...these are 2 very evenly matched teams. I'm confident in my team tho so on a neutral field or at the 'stick, I take SF every day.

    In that building tho...its a different story. The D gets an extra step because of the noise. Play calls need to be trimmed. Its a real factor.

    BTW...I have no problem eating crow. I've never guaranteed a win all off-season. I've always respected the Seahawks but defended the Niners. I've always viewed Seattle as the SECOND best team in the NFL. :D

    No shame in admitting that I think Seattle will win in their fortress of sound.

  • Ya not expecting a win, but expecting/hoping for a closer match up than last time. We aren't quite as banged up, Colin isn't going into his 6th start, so I expect a closer end score.

    Our defense looks suspect. GB put up plenty of points and yards, it is Aaron Rodgers... but still suspect secondary. Although Reid showed bright signs. D line got little pressure on Aaron and that is one crappy Oline to not penetrate. I do not worry about teams that are more one dimensional. (Think last year teams of Packers, Pats, Saints). We do not match up well against more balanced teams. Teams with good D, good running game, decent throwing, and the ability to wear down the clock are what worry me. Teams that can beat us at our own game. (Think last year teams of Vikes, Ravens, Giants). Now take a Seattle team that has all the above but excel in more than one area, add in the home field advantage and it just equate to expecting to come home with the W.

    So a win on the road against a stellar home team with very loud stadium, it just isn't plausible to expect a win... just for a good fight.

    I'm definitely not counting on it, but I think 12-4 gets HFA this year because all the divisions are so tough in the NFC. This means that we need 8-0 at home and four road wins. We have three left to get now, and STL/ARZ represent two of the easier shots at road wins that we have left. That ARZ game is on a Thursday night, though, which is irritating. Man, I hate Thursday night games.

  • I'm not so sure.

    Don't forget the Niners also played an insane number of downs against the Patriots in the week prior to the last meeting in between traveling across three timezones twice in the span of a few days. They'll be rested and amped up this time.

    Hawks may not see much of a pass rush improvement from last week either. Clem and Avril won't be playing their best (if they even play) after missing the first four preseason games and the season opener.

    This game could be decided on four or five key plays.

    LOL.

    This thread is like my last 3 or 4 months on this forum in reverse. I've made that argument before about the number of plays, Justin injury, and travelling back from NE and been shot down in a big way.

    No worries.

    Yes, I agree with what you've said which is why I think the game will be far closer...but in the end I think it's too much to expect a win in that building. Even when the Seahawks weren't very good they were a tough out up there. CAN the the Niners win? Of course. Just sayin I predict Seattle wins this one.

  • I think the game will be much closer (how could it not?) than the home game last year. I think it will be a 1-score differential.

    But I still see the Hawks winning this one at home.

    And I see them losing in SF.

    The home/road factor is what us going to separate these two teams this year, and that's it.

  • I don't see Seattle losing either game. If the first game was at Candle[crap], then I might write this one off as a loss, but we're going to get better as the season goes along just like 2011 and 2012.

    Especially with Harvin. The 9ers need to take this one now, IMO.

    I'm not. :D

    I don't think they "need" it, but it would be huge if they got it. They might be better later with Harvin, but I'm more worried about a Harvin-less team in Seattle than a team with harvin in SF.

    Hopefully, Crabtree will be back by then as well. Not counting on it though.

  • The Hawks need to win this thing, though. That would give them a VERY good shot at 4-1 through the first five, maybe 5-0 if we can figure out how to play offense on the road.

    After week one, the schedule looks much less scary, too. @ATL, NO, @SF look like the biggest challenges. I think the Giants probably are pretty mediocre, and I think the Texans and Colts can both be had on the road. This schedule looked insanely hard before the season started, but after the first week, I think it's been downgraded to merely "challenging."

    Yup, you nailed it. I see it this way as well. Set's it up nicely for a fan, especially in a forum setting like this. Plus, it allowed for Niner fans to chime in further to say that the location is the only reason the Hawks would win against what they say is an otherwise superior team. How very patronizing.

    Still, I can grant some sincerity to it. So, not just looking to rip apart everything Niner fans say. But, come on man... of course the 12th man makes it a tough place to play. No one needs to be reminded of that.

    In all honesty, I'm not into predictions. To me, they're pretty silly - as if someone actually knows the future. Are they just so one can say, "I told you so!"? Yeah, whatever.

    Each team knows each others' strengths and weaknesses. It seems like the Hawks have a few more question marks going into this game that concern me a bit - on both the offensive and defensive lines. I sure hope for a win b/c I don't want to hear the nonsense from the Niner fanbase if their team steals a win against a quite possibly somewhat more depleted team. If some of those guys are active (Browner, Avril, Clemons), are they 100%? We've got some new pieces in place that take time to gel. Of course so do the Niners, but it doesn't invalidate where the Seahawks are at as a team at this point. It's early and they are still working on some things. The injury bug has tempered my confidence.

    I think I might actually be more confident going into Candlestick than I am about this Sunday's game. By then, this team could be at full strength. If this Seahawks team can start 4-0, they are going to start getting players back and get stronger and stronger as the year unfolds. It's the early part of the season that has me feeling a bit unsettled. I know the Niners are a formidable team and so they give me a bit more concern than other teams might. But, seems like this Hawks team plays their best against better competition. I don't know if I can honestly say it will be a fun game to watch. Really, it's a quest for dominance in the NFC West. Ultimately, it's no fun at all unless the Hawks win. This is an important divisional game for a Seahawks team with championship aspirations.

    Go Hawks!

    I just don't see Carpenter or Sweezy having much success against SF. I dont think the offense is going to roll like last year.

    I do expect this game to be much much closer than last year's 49'er beat down at home though, especially if Kaep doesn't turn the ball over. So I expect a more conservative game plan out of Harbaugh than he brought in last year. He's not going to put too much on Kaepernick's plate, expect a lot of running and playing the field position game unless you get behind early.


    I think the 49ers will give the Hawks a much better challenge than Carolina. However, the 12th man is to be feared and respected. I believe that the Seattle 12th man is formidable and equals a touchdown advantage.

    The only chance for a 49er win is to control the clock with the run and hope the 49er line dominates the line of scrimmage on first down so that 2nd and 3rd downs are short downs. Finally, if the 49er special teams makes *one* mistake - it's game over. Miss a field goal, allow a return past the 50, or a bad punt - that will be the difference in the game. I think the Hawks can afford to give one turnover and still win the game, but if the 49ers make *one* turnover - it's over.

    Sweezy and Carpenter definitely will be facing a challenge. Backtiari (Green Bay's rookie left tackle) did a decent job against Aldon and Justin. I suspect Sweezy and Carpenter will do well in pass protection, simply because Wilson is so hard to sack and is mobile, so the D Line Rush can't sell out and penetrate - but have to contain rush. They may have trouble on the run blocking though - the 49er D Line is very hard to block.

    The season is early. There is a lot of unknowns on both sides of the ball on both teams. I think both fan bases won't know who is at all pro and who has declined until game 4. By then we have some sort of statistical base to see how each player is doing.

    It's going to be a good game, and I think there is a very good chance the 12th man will have their Guiness record by the end of the game.

    This is how I feel about the game later in the year at SF. I will gladly take 1-1 against Frisco and focus on maybe sweeping the rest of the NFCW


    Same here

    Do I expect the Niners to win on SNF this week? Nope!

    Do I think that the Niners have a chance to win this week? Yep!

    I respect your 12th man advantage way too much to allow myself to get mad about a 1-1 start to the season after what I believe to be the toughest part of our schedule, knowing that we won't have to play in C-link this season again thanks to our easier schedule compared to yours.

    However if we do win this Sunday night, I think there will be little doubt across the league, and even amongst those on here, that the NFCW and home filed advantage is ours for the taking.

    If Carroll and Bevell come out and continue to stubbornly try to run the ball against a defense that is clearly set on stopping the run like they did for 3 quarters in Carolina? Then yes, you're right.

    Carroll at his presser yesterday; "We didn’t zero in early enough, where we could make the adjustments that we normally make. It just took us a while. At the end of the game, we were able to run the ball enough to make the drives that we needed and things worked out. It just took us longer than we needed in that game in particular.”

    So yeah if we get off to another slow start like we seem to always do, then this is going to be a dog fight til the end. But if Pete let's Russell come out throwing downfield and make pass plays? Then that'll loosen up the run game, and we should win going away.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

  • Totally a trap. I would know since I do the exact same thing to my friends when I'm concerned about a game and don't wanna listen to all their trash talking after the fact. You cover yourself either way, either your team loses due to the reasons you presented ahead of time, or your team wins and then get to brag about it TWICE as much due to the reasons you presented ahead of time why they shouldn't be winning the game. I was already doing it this past Sunday watching at my buddy's house who's a diehard Panthers fan. I must've brought up 4 missing defensive starters, 10 am start, and 90 degree heat 5 times each prior to kickoff. Lol

  • I think Kaepernick handled last year's game about as poorly as he could. He's come a long way since then, so my gut feeling is that SF is good for 2, maybe 3 TDs. I also think Harbaugh has a secret weapon waiting for us. Some new wrinkle that he planned this offseason for just this game.

    Seattle has the matchup advantage and is at home. They will probably win. But I think it will be a very competitive game, and I expect the 49ers will hold leads during the game.

    I hope Boldin gets locked down by Browner and does jack diddly poo as Jim Mora Sr. would say. Not only because it would be huge for a Seattle win, but it might coax his fantasy owner from my league into trading him off his bench. Having watched that Packers game, I think Boldin is very much back to his old form. He looked like a 1400 yard, 13 TD WR to me.

    Guy doesn't like to lose. I'd be surprised if he didn't have something planned. Am I crazy for not worrying that much about the 49er passing game this week? My only concern is whether or not our line play will be good enough to get the job done.

    That is it exactly. This is the classic no lose set up. If they lose, oh well, they were supposed to. But if they win, that's it. Season's over. 2-0 vs the Hawks. Division's clinched. ;)

    Go Hawks.

    Agree with this. Like him or not, Kaepernick improved a lot this offseason. He won't be as rattled this time, and has a better rapport with Davis.

    And yes Douchebaugh is going to try to run a trick play or fake punt to take the crowd out of the game early. Too bad it won't work.

    I really sincerely strongly doubt that. In now way whatsoever do I think Harbaugh or the 9ers were holding things back and looking past the Packers. I can say for certain the fanbase wasn't. The Packers last year, like the Seahawks, finished 11-5 and lost in the diviosonal round. Why in the world would you not do everything you possibly could to beat them?

    As far Harb's "secret weapons" and 9ers fans trying to "trap" Hawks fans by saying the Hawks have a great chance of winning this weekend and are rightly the favorites -- and I say this in good spirit and lovingly -- your guys' (deserved) very high expectations and dueling Seattle-Sports-Victim-Complexes are SUPER entertaining. Like, seriously, it's really entertaining, and I'm seriously not poking fun or trying to be a jerk about it. It's as endearing as it is bizarre.

    As for the actual game, and again this is not a trap, I'd be surprised if the 9ers win. I'm hoping the 9ers go 3-2 through these first 5 games, and I wouldn't even be too upset if they go 2-3. I've always had this game penciled in as a loss for the 9ers. I think the only thing that would really concern me is if the 9ers get blown out. If they just lose though, I'm fine with that, and I'm expecting them to win at home later this year.

    The one thing I will say though is that if the Hawks do end up losing this game, I think the team, and in particular the fanbase, has waaaayyyy tooooo muuuuccchhhhh invested right now in what is ultimately just a regular season game. Any given Sunday, right? I think in your excitement you guys might emotionally have too much riding on this one, particularly given that a team that's rightly supposed to win (such as the Hawks this weekend) can routinely end up losing over something as meaningless as a few bounces randomly not going their way.

    Actually I'm pretty damn sure there will be a surprise. Roman does it almost EVERY week.

    From rolling our the Pistol in the playoffs (ran it earlier as well but nowhere near as often as in the playoffs), throwing passes to Isaac Sopoaga or Joe Staley, running a bootleg with Alex Smith...something. They always have something different planned every week.
