Just to be the bringer of bad news, the 49ers are 1-10 in Seattle since the 2012 season, including that horrific 2013 playoff loss. But here we are in the playoff hunt while Seattle is the one looking up at everyone in the NFC West. As we have seen, fortunes can change quickly in this parity-ridden NFL landscape. Russell Wilson, coming off his finger injury, cannot carry this team these days as the Seattle defense gives up tons of yards, and the offense is struggling to score points.
All that being said, I hate playing up there, and as noted we just don’t do well up there in Grunge country. This will be yet another game that we should win. Yet we also need to do what has worked recently. Control the clock. Run well and run often. Throw quick psses between the numbers and minimize getting Jimmy into bad 3rd and long situations.
Deebo is out, but Aiyuk has been performing up to his standards of last year. Mitchell is lead back, Wilson and Hasty will back him up as Sermon is hurt again. Time to get Kittle back into the mix as he has been forgotten as an option in the passing game.
And as usual avoid the turnovers. The only thing keeping Seattle in their games is the fact they get a lot of turnovers even as they give up tons of yards. As usual the fans will be up for this so we need to get the crowd out of the game and life will be much easier. They have turned on their team so get them down early and keep them down.
Win this game and I’ll take the Joker banner off this site.
MItchell is going to shove the football down Seattle’s throat as their pathetic against stopping the run. I want him to have all the carries! Yeah I’m greedy he’s a starter on my FF team, I’m-guessing Wilson gets a bone are 2, Hasty? maybe a 3rd and long only..Jimmy G is actually one of the most consistent QB’s in football the last month, so that bodes well, even if it’s Wilson who owns are ass (16-4 in 20 career starts) but is completely struggling with both his finger injury( mallet the new finger injury from hell , looks like Taysom Hill just got the finger last nights game as well)and the whole Seahawks situation and I guarantee he’s moving on next year, which would be great getting him out of this NFC West! Nothing but respect for him though Wilson is a true warrior, but I’ve seen more then enough heartbreak losses by #3 to last a lifetime!! 49ers 31-13
I wish I had your optimism, AK. Looking at the Warriors last night, they crapped out after the emotional win over Phoenix.
Thing is, though, Shanny HAS to know that Seattle wants to cripple us any way they can. Get on top of these fuckers early and don;t let them get any hope.
Chuck- Thanks again for deleting that link on the flap.
Love kats attitude but i wouldn’t put any money on it. Wilson just seems to step up when we play them. Covering Metcalf and lockett is no easy task. One thing in our favor is their run game sucks right now. Go Niners.
Teams winning the games they should win seems to be major issue in NFL this year. As I’m typing this the Vikes are losing to Lions 20-6 at half.
wow Goff wins it on last play of game with TD pass to complete 75 yd drive. Lions win, lol.
Glad for the Lions.
Your right Chuck Pete the cheat loves sticking to the Niners, when a Seattle play is made on D or their O, the camera shows Pete doing his rah, rah with a big smile on his face. So yes Kyle needs to run up the score big time, Wilson is still dangerous IMO.
WYF was that, and why weren’t the Niners ready for something like that
Our special teams coach needs to be fired.
If they go 3 and out I will be pissed
I can’t believe this shit!!!
U stuff them for a 3 and out
And give up a fake punt for a TD!!
Goddamit what a momentum turner,,
They are obviously overplaying the run so we need to adjust. Which we didn’t.
Wilson will go deep on this possession. I guarantee it.
When is Kyle going to learn to try a pass on 2nd and long, every team in the NFL knows JG does not do well on 3rd and long, they just go get him!
The D came to play..
The D just saved the O
That’s what you do on a turnover. Go for the throat.
I haven’t seen Kyle go for the throat on anything, it was a shock
What the fuck is going on here? We ended up with better position after the pick
WtF is happening out here?
A Jimmy gift pick 6..
A 2nd and 43 you don’t see that one often!
An almost stupid penalty on 3 rd and 32 on Wilson luckily picked up..
Carrol trying a 56 yard FG? Giving up huge field position..
Well one thing the Defense came to play!
They are all over Wilson’s grill destroying their OL!!
After a bizarre start and pick, they have settled in with nice scores by Kittle&Mitchell..
Like that Kittle is involved this week, they need him to ball out..
So you are 3rd and 21, and you throw what is a glorified screen pass, It is already known that Seattle corners are crap, why not try one down the field.
We got the points. That whole drive was a shit show.
Back to not having any cornerbacks
Okay Kyle needs to respond, the Niners need to score before the half
Fuck. This game is going about as shitty as I thought.
Deebos injury is a blessing in disguise, Kyle is having to use players he has not used. Hopefully he uses all his players once Deebo is back
Well that’s what they needed!
Kittle what a play tip toeing the sidelines for his 2nd TD!!
Shit. Get a pass rush, get a penalty.
Bosa gets hooked every fucking play and the refs eat their flags.
Pisses me off no end.
How stupid can you play!!
30 yards on 2 personal fouls!!
Fuck that easy scoring drive!
I’m blowing a gasket on how bad they just let them hang around! And screw you Gould missing the Pat!!
The announcer says what a great drive by Seattle, yeah with huge help from the Niners D
They is going to be a lot of ass chewing in the locker room, there was no need for those roughing the passer penalties, they were doing fine with making Seattle pass in the middle of the field and eating up the clock.
Yeah, no chance the Niners are going to choke this one away. lol
Okay, is it better to be lucky than good? Crazy game
This is a prime example of why you don’t wait till 3rd and long to pass the ball, especially when you are on your own 5 yard line
Wilson is in a rhythm now. This is just about all over except for the details.
This is what I was afraid of Seattle getting up to play the Niners
It’s unbelievable how a team can suck so bad in a city, across multiple coaching staffs, players, seasons. Ever since Seattle moved to the NFC, San Francisco has struggled there. Today is just the latest chapter.
What a fucking nightmare game. Typical Seattle bullshit.This game will turn on a stupid penalty..
Okay, so let’s not wait till 3rd and long from the 8 yard line
Okay, Kyle has options
Garoppolo misses a wide open Sherfield and throws into double coverage.
Or stupid pick.
What a joke.
I can’t wait until Garoppolo is gone.
Fuck this shit Jimmy can’t handle adversity, bring in Lance!!! Probably a mistake but so is Jimmy Shit Crapolla!! What a waste of a winning game and now they trail again..
Now the question is Kyle going to go strictly with the run
Shanny getting outcoached yet again by Pete Carroll. Jimmy G is fucking awful. Special teams, awful. Losing Moseley was killer.
Really had it with Jimmy G. He’s fucking blind.
Carroll owns Shanahan and always will.
So much for my optimism, should of known better playing Seattle anywhere is a nightmare for this club every fucking time!!
And down goes Mitchell and it looks bad.
Hard to believe we had a 23-14 lead with the ball. This os going even worse that I could have imagined..
Kyle has no faith inJG to pass the ball
Oh yeah that was a brilliant call going with Jimmy on an option! Ugh maybe be better using Lance, hello McFly!!
I hate losing to Seattle, it’s like losing to the Dodgers in baseball ⚾️
That’s a catch
Oh, it’ll be overturned.
And the hits just keep on coming
Seattle can just run the ball and eat up the clock. The Niners have no answer for this game
This is just plain embarrassing now
Who’s on the take with that call?
Clearly Aiyuk had possession, how many steps does he need to reach the space needle?
Refs are surely affected by this 12th man BS!!
This one’s over, boys.
Well it was nice to have the playoffs in sight for one game
It doesn’t matter how bad Seattle is, the 49ers just can’t win here. Don’t see that ever changing. What a pathetic and embarrassing performance in a game that started pretty well. Kyle Shanahan teams are the most ill-prepared teams you’ll find in the NFL. And JG needs to go away, now. He’s never going to be the answer at QB, so why keep running him out there? More Shanahan shenanigans as he tries to delude himself into believing JG is the guy. The guy is average at best.
A 3-8 team and the Niners are struggling!
And now they’re turning it around.
The officiating has killed them in this game.
Kittle and Auiyu the only bright spots
Only when Kyle is backed into a corner does he call plays that he should have been calling all game long
That’s because the corners are playing off the WRs to not give up a big play.
Refs totally in on this game. Sherfield was held AND PI’ed..
And end the end they choke the chicken!!!!
That was some mugging Sherfield took in the endzone on 3 rd and goal, of course no pass interference call as the refs had their whistles so far down their throats and their yellow flags stitched inside their pants.. But fuck it they deserved to lose to a shit Seahawks squad that will always own them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Still in the last playoff spot. This game doesn’t really hurt us if we can pull our heads out.
Aiyuk’s ball earlier was a catch. The game is hard enough without the horrible officiating. Tomlinson gets a holding call for doing absolutely nothing. Bosa and Armstead were held about 12 times with no call. And of course Sherfield in the end zone held his whole route and PI on the throw with no call.
Plus our own stupid penalties. Fuck Seattle.
The good news is that Aiyuk is clearly coming on. He was good today and has been recently, playing tough and catching all the high throws from the awful JG.
Yeah, Seattle is it’s usual house of horrors self. Special teams has been a real black hole these last couple weeks.
The pass rush was strong early, but wasn’t near as effective later. Too many fucking mistakes. We let them back in the game and just gave the ball away too many times..
Fuck Seattle. That was their super bowl this year.
Kittle had a great game and so did Aiyuk. Just so fucking tired of the inconsistent officiating. And the inconsistent play of Jimmy G. Would have liked to see Lance ion that 4th and 1 play that was fucked up by Mack. He actually saved the day by doing that..
We have Jared Goff and the one-win Lions for our spot in the 7 hole. Still on the right side of the playoff hunt.
Nerw thread is up.
