Say what you will about the team, but apparently the curse of We’re the Hekawi is over. The 49ers exorcized a lot of demons by beating the Seattle Seahawks after losing their last 10 against them. And it was mainly at the strength of the defensive line. They bottled up Seattle’s run game, and actually got some pressure on Russell Wilson. Enough to make his day less than stellar anyway, despite the great game individually by a lot of Seahawks.
20-29 for 275, 1 TD, and 2 bad drops that killed drives. The run game was decent, except for the Wilson fumble, the passing game was solid, except for the drops, the defense was solid but for some really dumb penalties, and special teams finally made a huge contribution with the Rick James superfreak of a runback for the opening TD.
Draft pick be damned, I still think we can get a pass rusher in the top 5. And I’d like to see more of this defense getting more pressure. If they can become a solid unit by the end of the year, it begs to think they are improving. Saleh at this point is saving his own bacon.
How bout them (shut out) Cowboys!
