where 9ers players discuss the impact of playing against the Rams this year.
So the Rams definitely got San Francisco’s attention in 2012, but several 49ers still list Seattle as their main rival.
“The St. Louis games are great, but we don’t see them as our rivals though,” said tight end Delanie Walker, a Central Missouri State product.
“The most physical team we played is the Rams,” Seely said.
"The Seahawks are now known league wide as the team sooooooo badass and smashmouth and hard hitting that they couldn't even go thru their own practices without laying smack down on fools." - JSeahawks
