49ers-Seahawks could have flex appeal
Thu Dec 06, 2012 9:15 pm

    The Week 16 game between San Francisco and Seattle looks like a good candidate for flexing into prime time on NBC.

    The league and networks haven't made an announcement yet, but the currently scheduled Sunday nighter between the San Diego Chargers and New York Jets is looking like a tough sell. Both teams are struggling.

    Fox has protected the New York Giants' game at Baltimore. CBS has protected the Cincinnati-Pittsburgh game. That means neither game will be heading for NBC in prime time.

    That leaves the 49ers-Seahawks game as the most appealing game to get flexed, in my view.


    Make it so NFL.

    High probability ........ provided we win and the NFC West title is up for grabs. Therefore, Niners need to lose one of the next two games.

  • WHY!!!

    nevermind the attention, schedules are prepared for, nothing needs to change, low key is just fine, its already in the niners favor when it comes to the league and officiating

    nothing both the league and the officials would like to do more is get back at Seattle for that seahawk call everyone is still whimpering about..

    you know what they say, the squeeky wheel gets the grease, apparently all this whining s an effort to get some help for GB and screw Seattle, especially if they play one another and especially if Seattle gets home fiedl over GB which is still possible on both accounts..

    green bay has a VERY hefty schedule coming up with the lions, da bears, titans, and vikes, they could easily lose 2 and possibly every game, oddly enough even the lions are still in the wild card hunt a lot would have to happen but its possible, obviously the vikes and da bears are in for a division title so they should be playing lights out leaving everything on the field, do or die, just as it is for the hawks so those tow ending up with identical records is VERY possible and you know the whiners will be coming out of the word work claiming a catch isn't a catch cuz a couple worn out idgets that try to call games for ESPN say they it wasn't, deosnt matter the official that made the call said he called it right, deosnt matter the league said it was a good call,

    all that matters are the cry babies, between all the whiners and the league prez its going to be embarrassing to even watch a game, if they all get their way they'll stroll the QBs out in a baby carriage while he throws a nerf football at receivers who are wearing maids outfits and schoolgirl uniforms..

    its getting real bad, every player need to sign a disclaimer that dissolves any and all responsibility of injuries to every except his self, then they need to lose the rules regarding illegal enhancers and blow the game wide open, just develop high tech composite shielding and bracing along with high tech padding, so what it slows em down a bit, isn't that what they want anyways?

    fans still want to see hard hitting, they never want to see anyone get hurt, pad em up and let em play!!!

    This year.

    A quick Google Search shows we've played on Sunday night at least 3 other times since 2000, all when ESPN had the coverage:

    Nov 11, 2001, Oakland Raiders at Seattle Seahawks - 34-27 win

    Oct 12, 2003, SF 49ers at Seattle Seahawks - 20-19 win

    Oct 16, 2005, Houston Texans at Seattle Seahawks - 42-10 win

    So, it looks like we have pretty good history going for us on PrimeTime Sunday night games here in Seattle.

    Dude, not everyone is out to get us. The officials are just out there doing the best they can. They aren't trying to screw over the Seahawks, and if they were we would not have won the week 3 game. Fact.

    Do you think they've given the Packers extra wins because of that game? No? Well then they aren't looking to deal the Hawks an extra loss.

  • Watch it not happen. The entire nation views Pete Carroll as a cheater, especially after Adderallgate, and they'll do whatever it takes to keep him out of the limelight.

    We'll just have to win the division on the down-low. ;)

    I think we play better on national televised games. We still have the best MNF record to date 18-8!

  • We played on a Sunday Night in Chicago the year after the Super Bowl year and had a miserable night. I think that was the first game with Alexander injured that year

  • This whole thing was analyzed in an earlier thread, and it's playing out pretty much as suspected.

    Giants at Ravens would be a great choice, but it's been protected, as we suspected. Bengals at Steelers is a decent choice, given that whoever loses is almost certainly not going to make the playoffs, but that's protected too (and has more of a regional appeal, anyway, with no big market teams).

    If it's not us, it'll be Saints at Cowboys, because of the market size and the fact the 49ers play on the previous Sunday night. This of course assumes at least one team, ideally both, are still alive.

    (Maybe Vikings at Texans?)

    My understanding is that this will all be settled Tuesday the 11th, as they must provide essentially two weeks notice to all teams involved.

    Seems to me that if I was making the decision, I'd rather have two teams that were playing for playoff positioning, than one team that was playing to keep from being eliminated and another team that was pretty much out of it... the first type of game is likely to have people watching for 3+ hours, the second type of game could easily be a blowout with people tuning out after 90 minutes...

  • If the national fan is anything like the internet fan, then a lot of people want to see Russell Wilson. He's become quite the topic on social networks on other NFL message boards. Factor in it will more than likely be for the divisional crown, with one of the teams being a storied franchise with a huge national following, I dont see how SF @ SEA gets flexed into primetime.

  • Sucks that we won't be playing them full force. Without Sherman and Browner, we're just not nearly as physical as we would be. Not that the dry humping, Niner loving media will point any of that out.

  • Sorry, but Wilson doesn't play defense, and w/out those 2 guys, the Hawks are not nearly the team they are at full strength. Good enough to beat average teams sure, but this drastically changes our chances vs. the Niners, even at home.

  • The ONLY way I see this not happening is because NBC has the 49ers on SNF the week before.

    Otherwise - it seems like a safe bet to go down.
