The 49ers only scored three points against the Carolina Panthers in Week 1. The Seahawks lost, 16-9, in Green Bay last week, and they haven't lost at home to San Francisco since the 2011 season. Game kicks off on Sunday at 1:25 p.m. PT. Hear Steve's one-on-one interview with defensive end Cliff Avril, his "710 with 710" conversation with KIRO radio's Mike Salk and Danny O'Neill and more.
Shaquill Griffin breaks up a pass intended for Green Bay's Davante Adams during the first half Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017, in Green Bay, Wisconsin. While both corners proved to be up to the challenge, each will likely be counted on to play large roles again against the 49ers.
Officially, Sherman was limited in practice on Friday.
Weather could play a role in the outcome of this game as the Seattle area is expected to get some significant rainfall for the first time since June.
Excellent safety play has always been a staple of Pete Carroll defenses, and this Sunday will be no different. He looks like he can play.
Lynch told Seattle's KJR-AM radio on Thursday the 49ers first approached him about the job during last season's playoffs.
The Seahawks felt they didn't have enough chances to establish the running attack last week with just 15 called running plays and only 18 runs overall, good for 90 yards, with 40 of them coming on two Russell Wilson scrambles.
This game looks like it'll be an ugly one, so we may see another late game take a turn early on and turn into a blowout if the Seahawks perform as everyone expects them to.
"He's done just really well". With the inexperience along the offensive line it might be smarter to just to make the entire offensive scheme as simple as possible so the players can just go out and play without having to overthink everything. In the past seven, he has thrown for 1,599 yards, nine TDs and four INTs.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Sherman would be a game-time decision, but he sounded optimistic that Sherman would be able to play.
Still, if the Seahawks can't get the running game going at home against the 49ers with projected starting tailback Thomas Rawls back in the fold, it will be fair to ask when they will get it going. "They catch a ball on him and he isn't turning, his eyes wide, shocked, confused, frustrated". We have him down as the 27th-best wide receiver for Week 2. A bounce back game from Jimmy Graham should go a long way toward a Seahawks victory on Sunday.
