They gave up 30+ point to this Patriots offense.

Nope. Especially if Justin Smith is out. I definatly respect them though and know it will be a tough challenge.

I'm confident in Russell Wilson against any defense.

Definitely the best D we will play all year. Brady lit them up real good but they will be our biggest challenge since we played them last. Hopefully our OL is up to the challenge, because their front plays tough

They were beyond gassed in the second half with the up tempo offense. I think we should take care of business at home. I don't see us giving up 41 to their offense......damn it Pats defense.

I'm not scared per say. It is just football. I might say I want to win pretty bad and that presents a few nerves come game time. Every time.

Im actually more worried about the 9ers offense at this point, they had things moving REALLY well for most of that game. I hate to say it but I really like their OC.

I am super pumped about how well the Hawks are playing but there is no question that the 49ers are excellent. Offense, defense, special teams. The Hawks will have to play a perfect game to beat them. Could be the 2 best teams in the NFL

I think it will be the toughest game at CLink this year by far. This game is going to come down to the wire. Heart attack stuff in the making. I think we blew our load with blowouts for a while.

The game will be tough. This was a unexpected win for me. Good luck next week. Your qb and team are scary good. I love that we have possibly the two best teams in the NFC I feel. Go niners

patriots secondary has been there achiles heel all year..we will not give up all those long plays... it's the short middle field stuff that worries me.. our linebackers are horrible in coverage... oh and gore gashing us up the gut... wagnor had better bring his a game... hill looked slow as hell again today, that's a worry.

I'm not scared but they still got a damn good defense. Brady was on a mission in the second half, he was playing out of his mind. Til SF went back and scored and then Brady totally screwed it up. Way to go Tom. I hate you.

If we can stop the run we'll be alright. If not it's gonna be on Russell.

And if we can't run, it's gonna be a lot tougher to score.

It all comes down to line play. We gotta play great on both sides of the line.

Scared? No. Like someone said earlier, I have respect for them, but our team had chances to win in the last moments against them in the first matchup, and our team has grown, and evolved quite a bit since then.

I have confidence that this is a winnable game. Our offense will move the ball better this time.

I am. Giving up some touchdowns to the league's best QB doesn't mean they're bad. Their front seven is fast, tough, and much better suited to shut down both the zone-read and the run than the Bears were. Their secondary will be another strong matchup for our receiving corps. And our guard situation is extremely worrisome right now.

if we can't stop that quick trap run up the middle that they kept burning us with last time, we will have a hard time stopping their offense.

Right now, the 9ers are better in the trenches than the Seahawks in my opinion. Not afraid of them, since the past 4 yrs it has been a given that the rival 9ers had more talent than the upstart, retooling Seahawks.

I think they are physically stouter in the trenches but that is just based on the second half of the game from earlier this year. Time to see how things have progressed.

I believe the great equalizer will be the best home field advantage in the NFL.

Doesn't guarantee victory but it sure as Hell helps.

I know this thread is based on the Niners second half performance on defence, but take into consideration having one their best pass rushers (Justin Smith) out for the second half. Losing Smith diminished the pass rush to an extent.

I respect their defense and they are a good team. They even score points. But this time around will be a pay back whoopin' at our house. Not no whoopin' like these past two but a convincing win nontheless. I have faith.

You guys are nuts, the 49ers still have a great defense even if they did almost allow an amazing comeback.

The best thing about this game is that it's the NFL's best team versus the NFL's hottest team. I don't care who you are, if you are a fan of the NFL, you are watching this game.

Nope.

Seattle is playing lights out right now. A lot of confidence and swagger coming into this game, and Russell has just taken off. He's on another realm of existence right now. I keep expecting to see him levitate above the field, in the lotus position, and shoot the football from his mind's eye in a perfect laser spiral right into the hands of Rice, in the back of the endzone.

SF hasn't played this team yet. That game in San Fran was against another squad. And it was in SF. This will be in the Clink. This is for more than playoffs. It's a pride thing. It's for BB. It's for us. The Hawks are gonna bring it.

Yeah. They are very good and fast. They were handling the Pats until they switched up to a cover 2 zone. They create turnovers and they blitz pretty well too. They play physical and I like their swagger. They play like they think they are the best and I can appreciate that.

We have the makings but I think we are a little young and we don't have that swagger (Sherman and Thomas do). I'm curious to see if we can stop the runs up the middle. We also don't put pressure on the QB like they do. Both teams should be well prepared. We have similar QB's, run the zone read, and both coaches are familiar with each other.

You know... As soon as that happened Kaepernick would have the biggest target on his head from our head hunters right? Y'all don't want that kind of problem, do you?

If the Hawks can keep the SF ground game in check they should be in good shape... like somebody else said, this isn't the same offense that played in San Fran earlier in the season. That being said SF has a great D and it should be a great game. I don't think it's the D we need to worry about, it's the running game... and maybe a close second of keeping Vernon Davis out of the end zone.

No I am not scared of the defense and neither is our team. Can't wait for this game, but I would have been more excited if the patriots weren't full of chokers.

We will see how Kaepernick does under the noise of the 12th man. He played in a quiet collegiate conference and hasn't really been under the kind of pressure that we're about to pound him with.

Yes, an offense that had been averaging 43 points per game over the last 6 games. For perspective, despite your back to back 50-burgers, your team has only averaged 35 over the last 6 games (and several of those scores were by your defense). This offense was playing at a historical level when we came in and held them to 3 by halftime. And considering Justin Smith played all of one play in the second half, we weren't even at our best from then on on defense (if I were you I'd pray that his injury keeps him out next week. Last season when he went out against St. Louis the Rams had 7 points going into the 3rd quarter, and with him out they managed to take that to 27. He is the key to our D, and I promise if he had not been hurt NE wouldn't have passed 30).

And neither are we playing with the same offense. New quarterback, remember?

The score would indicate that but really the Pats O was stopping themselves with fumbles and drops ALL GAME. Their D is very good but can be scored on. Good luck and beat the 9ers on Sunday..

And the 49ers, with their 4 or so fumbles on snaps, including on a key 4th down, the missed fg, and the Delanie Walker fumble didn't hurt us either... Quit making excuses. You got BEAT despite every advantage, including a critical b.s. PI call late in the game (note that ever single commentator said it was a bad call, and note that every single one said the PI on Crabtree was a good call, because your guy didn't turn around for the ball despite pats fans whining about it). We caused both OUR fumbles (except the Walker one) AND YOURS by knocking the crap out of your players, and Brady's second interception was caused by how badly we knocked the crap out of your TE Herndandez earlier and putting the fear of God in him (that 15 yard penalty for #38 rocking Hernandez' world earlier). He was scared because we hurt him. Your running backs fumbled because we knocked the crap out of them. Admit your defeat without making excuses.

Pray for rain, my friend. But of course, I'm sure Harbaugh will have Kaep putting in some extra practice on the snap this week. The issue should be resolved by Sunday night.

He is the key to our D, and I promise if he had not been hurt NE wouldn't have passed 30).

And neither are we playing with the same offense. New quarterback, remember?

@ 5 rings: Who are you trying to convince with numbers? You beat the Pats the same way the Hawks did, you hit them in the mouth and gave them second thoughts. And yes, Justin Smith is the heart and soul of the D-line. Aldon Smith is getting his ass kissed by ESPN right now, but he isn't shit without Justin.

Question: How is Justin going to grab and hold two guys with an elbow injury? Pretty much the San Fran pass rush is one Smith grabs two guys, other Smith runs behind him to the QB.

Meh, slightly concerned due to the fact they're a good team and they've beat us the last few times we've played. Scared and feeling we have no hope that we can win next week? Not a chance.

They gave up 30+ point to this Patriots offense.


Yes, an offense that had been averaging 43 points per game over the last 6 games. For perspective, despite your back to back 50-burgers, your team has only averaged 35 over the last 6 games (and several of those scores were by your defense). This offense was playing at a historical level when we came in and held them to 3 by halftime. And considering Justin Smith played all of one play in the second half, we weren't even at our best from then on on defense (if I were you I'd pray that his injury keeps him out next week.

I will not deny that Justin Smith is our defensive MVP, but Aldon Smith is no slouch. He's a good player. Justin is definitely the key here, though, and without him our defense isn't the same.

I think they better be scared of our offense.

5golden,

Excuses? No an excuse would be saying the 9ers DB's got away with illegal contact the ENTIRE 1st half.. see thats an excuse, Saying the Pats blew the game by dropping balls and fumbling (which is VERY VERY unlike our team.) is an observation. Th 9ers won the game but I know I wouldn't "fear" them in a rematch even in SF. Unlike what HAWK fans saying you punched us in the mouth and won, nope we lost to the Hawks because of the 12th man, and it keeping the Pats out of the hurry up offense. We lost to the niners because of the Pats playing SLOPPY in the first half PLUS.

You and 5_Golden_Rings's back-and-forth here probably belongs in the NFL forum, as it's not really Seahawks related.

My only concern is that the Hawks have been going to the zone read more and more as their bread and butter lately. Harbaugh is pretty familiar with how to properly defend this style of offense going back to his Stanford days vs the Oregon Ducks. I would like to see our staff add another wrinkle or two off of the zone read just to keep the D off balance.

No I am not scared of the defense and neither is our team. Can't wait for this game, but I would have been more excited if the patriots weren't full of chokers.



Funny so many are bitching about the Pats.

You perhaps are forgetting that WE are the team that was full of chokers in 3-4 games this season.

Why are you blaming/expecting some other team to do our job for us? We're in this position because we lost, not because NE lost.

Fear the Niner defense? Yup. Theirs was the only game this season that I have seen our lines on BOTH sides of the ball dominated for 60 minutes solid. I hope our guys took the lesson, Cable paid attention, and they have an answer for it. Lines crumble and everything else becomes much more difficult. Both teams have evolved since the first match.... this will be very interesting.

If Seattle comes out and has a case of the dropsies like last time, it's going to be a long game. But I think Wilson and Lynch are fearless in the face of the 9ers and I expect that to be contagious.
