    The Seahawks have one of the best Prime Time records in the NFL, and are unbeaten at home, and they are on a roll. The game will be a very good one with a very small margin of victory, no matter which team gets the W. Niners offense needs to be able to stop Seattle’s D to really put this one away if they want the win. Hawks will likely come out on top.

    I like your thinking Ron. The pats game is where Aldon needs to come up big. Put some pressure on Brady, make him think twice about taking that second or third look down field and disrupt his rhythm. Everybody knows, the Pats go as Tom Brady goes. Cut off the head and the body will fall. Aldon Smith not only has a chance to set a new NFL record, but also has the opportunity to propel us into a 2 seed, give us a first round bye and let the rest of the league know, WHO’S GOT IT BETTER THAN US, NOBODY!

    Glad to see the NFL show games with division and playoff implications to their prime time schedule instead of two teams playing a meaningless game that only attracts viewers of those two teams

    I am a true 49er fan, but Seatlle’s is tough at home and also have a good “D”
    If the 49ers offense does not put up alot of points it will be a tough game. We play too conservative to often, even when we need to be aggressive.It’s time to open up the play book and go for it. Make a Statement to the NFL on prime time; on the ground or in the air, we are going to kick your !!! “GO NINERS”

    Both defenses solid- Niners just a little better.
    Both offenses solid- Niners just a little better

    Seahawks/Niners- Niners just better.

    Win Niners.

    FINALLY. After the Whiners lose at NE, the whole world will see how hard it is to play in SEA. SF BETTER win against NE, if they don’t, bye bye division title.

    Man those Seahawks are looking scary good, but being a niner faithful I’m pulling for my niners. But, they need to pull their heads out and okay ball. Last 2-3 games have been sloppy on the offensive side of the ball. I love kaep but I honestly think smitty is our guy to bring this season to a Superbowl. Atleast for now. Niner nation!

    Man those Seahawks are looking scary good! But being a niner faithful I’m pulling for my niners. They do have to pull their heads out and play better ball on the offensive side. Last 2-3 games have been weak performances. I love kaep and what he has the potential but I think smitty is our guy to get us our Superbowl rings. Atleast for now. Niner nation baby!

    here we go, these next two games, three really, are the playoffs; block, contain and tackle, remember the fundamentals and everything else will take care of itself. When the 49ers bring their “A” game, noone is better, noone ! Now go and beat Brady and the Pats and then finish off the Seahawks at their house !!! Niners all the way . . . YES !!!!

    seahawks are peaking in two equally important ways! obviously @ the correct time (heading into the post-season), and more importantly they are peaking in all three aspects of the game, and with another special-teams TD (two in the last three games). Thist always important wild-card of the modern NFL can win or lose a game in an instant, on what always starts out as just another kick-off/punt or kick/punt return, and becomes a legendary “PLAY”. Seahawks fans mark my words as we head down the stretch, D has been tough all year, with the exeption of a handful of plays. O has been a work in progress, which went into over-drive against the bears, and kept humming right along Vs the cards. You throw in a few more BIG special teams plays and I will be talking in FEB! In NORLENS! FEEL MEEEEEEE!!!! STARVING, HUNGRY, HAWKFAN!!!!!

    Hey niner fans, respect the franchise, grudgingly “like” this years team! But you people talk about the “current” squad like they are already crowned! Did’nt learn anything from getting your clocks “CLEANED” by the G-MEN @ HOME AT THAT, QUIT TALKING AND LET EM PLAY! OR I WILL HAVE TO HEAR YOU TALK, TALK, TALK ALL NEXT SEASON, ENJOY THE SILENCE HAWK FANS. TIRED OF SAN FRAN’S “FAN’S!!! IN SEATTLE.

    You 9ers better take care of your business in New England, because face it, you know you don’t want the division title to come down to having to beat Seattle at home.
    You know it just won’t happen.
    Trash talk all you want.
    But you know.

    Im telling you right now, If san fran blows the game against N.E. Seattle Will Win the NFC West, They will lay it all out to beat san fran in seattle. for crying out loud if it wasnt for like 1 or 2 drops, Seattle would have beaten San Fran in Candle Stick!!!!

    Seahawks are undefeated at home, 9ers will probably lose to the Pats, and if seattle beats Bills, and then the hers, it won’t matter who wins wk 17. In that situation, Seahawks win the division. There is no guarantee to who will win the division title. But the favor leans towards the Seahawks, because 2-3 of the next games are home games. And our away game is against the Bills.

    @scott Homefield advantage = Seahawks a lot better.

    Niners bringing the heat baby yeah!

  24. By Scott on Dec 10, 2012 | Reply

    @Dehrich – a lot better? No. helps? Sure. But I would venture to say that our defense is by far the toughest Seahawks fill face. I admit Seahawks are a good defense as well. However, we are better in all aspects of the game, and if the Niners come ready (which is their weak spot) then Seahawks won’t win.

    The 58-0 blowout, while impressive, was much due to great field position due to very very very very poor play by a team that simply quite before the game even started. Any team coming in that day with a good defense would have had similar results. Your concern should be that Wilson doesn’t put up big numbers, and we stop the run.

    Carroll is have nightmares of Harbaugh no one should endure, and Wilson is thinking about the Smith Bros as much as a kid with a crush.

    It will be a very good game, but advantage goes to Niners.

    All things aside, nice to have teams to root for! This is known as “good problems.” Glad I’m not a Card or Raider fan…=)

    The Niner’s will have to play their best game of the season against the Patriots, and the Seahawks to win that NFC west.
    The Niners shouldn’t have not lost to the Rams,and to have a tie on your record is not good if you want to be the King of that division.
    My gut feeling is you guys are going to loose in NE, and Seattle, but will get the wild card berth, which is still OK.
    The Niners has a better chance with Alex Smith as the starting QB, Instead of that Tim Tebow want to be in Mr K.

    Watched the Niners beat the Suckhawks in SF. Looking forward to watching them do it again in Seatlle and wrecking their supposedly unbeatable home record.

    I see 3 records being broken in the next 2 weeks.. Patriots will lose their first home game in December since 2002, Seahawks will lose their home winning record, and Aldon Smith will break the single season sack record. People hate on the 9ers way too much, they must not watch very much football. In all reality, Patriots is going to be TOUGH.. Seahawks will be just like last year.. close until the 4th when the seahawks offense is beat up and the defense takes over the game.

    the 9er defence and secondary will come up big in both games expect the smith bros and patrick willis to make thier statements about how good they really are kapernick has to get the ball to gore and in the air to vernon davis and michael crabtree randy moss will shine in these two games also first thing is to get brady confussed and then beat the seahawks

    Look for Mcdonald and Brooks to have two big nights, Patriots and Seahawks are going to be focused on the Smith brothers that the other two guys are going to tear it up. LETS GO NINERS

    First of all let’s (SEA and S.F fans) not get ahead of ourselves, setting up another monster match up. SEA has to win Vs BUF, ON THE ROAD, and S.F. must loose to N.E., both are probable, but not etched in stone! I love the SEAHAWKS! However I’am a realist also, like I said yesterday, LET THEM PLAY BIG MOUTHS!!!

  36. By Patrick on Dec 11, 2012 | Reply

    If Sherman and Browner weren’t both suspended at the same time, I’d say the Seahawks have a much higher chance of beating the 49ers at home. Thurmond is an excellent corner and missing one of the two above corners wouldn’t be an issue with him filling in for one slot That was evidenced by shutting out the Cardinals last week. However, it will be difficult for the Seahawks without both of them. The game will tilt a little more in the 49ers direction because of it unless their other backup plays very well. I’m still going with the Seahawks winning this game since it’s in Seattle and it will be very hostile with the fans and potentially weather. Regardless of the outcome, the Seahawks are a very young and rapidly improving team. The 49ers will have their work cut out for them to maintain their division lead this year and in the coming years. Go Seahawks!

    Are you kidding me Seattle has barely beat good teams and they beat AZ who has lost 8 ina row……So what……Seattle has won 2 games on the road that is it…they can on only win at home because the 12th man is so LOUD……The Niners have beat the SEA CHICKENS twice last year and once already….

    Niner’s can win at Seattle, we have a great D! Pete and Jim do NOT like each other at all…..so it will be high scoring points. Our OLine needs to step up and the play calling is BORING for the Niners……In the early part of the season we were picked to go to the SB—we have not been picked to win since CK has been in the QB position……If we loss to the PATS we can kiss our season good bye….

    Love the respect the west is getting. Niners Aldon breaks sack record in prime time. The Strahan Giants booted to 1:00pm start!

    Niners will blow it you should have took notes on what it did to the Seahawks at the start of the season to have a qb not used to the nfl you guys will lose and we are the NFC best Champs so good not to be the nfc worst!!!!!
