The San Francisco 49ers were beat up badly last Sunday night in front of the world. With that win, may be a formula to beat them as well. It would not surprise me; however, if the 49ers crafty coach took a fall on purpose to try and not give teams more information on them or to not give Seattle a better feel for them in case they met again in the playoffs. Obviously this is all skeptical, but there was not much on the line for the 49ers to win. I know Seattle is a tough place to play for away teams, but it has never been that tough.
The Seahawks soared out to a huge lead and led 28-6 at halftime. They added another touchdown in the 3rd quarter to lead 35-6 and ultimately won 42-13. Russell Wilson threw 4 touchdowns while Marshawn Lynch rushed for 111 yards and a score. He also caught one of Wilson’s TDs. The team even was able to block an easy 49er field goal that they returned for a touchdown. Even more impressive, may have been the Seahawks giving up just 28 yards on the ground to Frank Gore. Colin Kaepernick actually led the 49ers in rushing with 31 yards.
This all seemed a bit amazing even given the tough venue and terrible weather. Nothing about San Francisco seemed like San Francisco though. They seemed way out of sink and at no time looked productive in the least bit. It certainly is bad timing for fallout and I feel more sinister things are at work.
