    It's all about "match ups" in the NFL. I think they had a good plan, just didn't execute it very well.

    That being said, the weather did play a part, but I think the "nerves" have gotten to Wilson a bit. You can see it in his facial expressions. He better "loosen up", or he's going to play "average" again, and that won't cut it against the 9'ers this time around.


    I think this is exactly what they wanted to do - and did shortly, but he got hurt.
    If he's okay to play, the 9'ers secondary is gonna have their hands full with a triple threat - Harvin, Wilson (TE), and Wilson (QB) running. They haven't used Wilson's legs much, as compared to last year. If you look at the 9'ers improvement (second half of season), Kapernick has gone back to running more. Seems like they have figured it out. It's time Seattle does the same.


    I personally think it's going to be a low scoring game (relatively). 24 to 17 being on the really high end, but think it will be more like 17 to 13 or something like that.

    In the Harvin getting hurt. I watched that game. It looked like the Saints were playing dirty pool on him. That hit in the end zone where he didn't catch the ball looked like a unnecessary hit.

    I think you are correct. Payton didn't take kindly to the trouncing he got the first time around. First rule of coaching, FIND A WEAKNESS AND CAPITALIZE ON IT. Harvin has been out for a long time and his
    play performance would not be top notch. But always a danger, take him out. Take away one more of Wilson's weapons.

    This shit about Wilson is being overblown. Obvious he didn't play well but who cares. We were up with a cozy lead in the playoffs with the best running back in football at grinding out runs. Not to mention there were 30mph winds that even made drew brees look silly at times. Why risk opening up the passing game? It's the playoffs ..you just play to win by 1. When you're up 13/16-0 in a windstorm with lynch, you run the ball and play softer d. If you star throwing it around, one wind gust and it's a pick 6 going the other way. The only time in the game Russell "had to make" a throw was late on that 3rd and 2 to Baldwin, and he threw a perfect ball.

    Lynch had one of his best games of the year and he has been the main reason why we have been so successful vs the 49ers lately. Let the media focus on Wilson all week...we can just ride the beast + our d to the Superbowl.

    I could not have said it better. Seems we are so spoiled that we are now criticizing even how we win games.

    Take it easy golfman, 2 pages - only 2 posts "criticizing" Wilson (one was just an observation "as of late")...

    If Hawks win, you can have the last laugh.

    However, it's not like they are the only two guys in the world that have noticed the offensive "drop off" ... as of late.

    Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good. San Fran came close to losing their last two regular season games but the breaks fell their way. Still I think Seattle will win , it should be a great on. As someone else said "This is the super bowl, that other game is for third place".

    I now live in Seahawks territory, but being from northern Cal, I have been a Niners fan my whole life. So, here is my prediction. The defense of both teams dominate, resulting in a low scoring game. 49ers win 17-13.
    What's your prediction?

    My prediction is that you are going to be really dissapointed Sunday.

    I heard a couple possible headlines, for Monday's paper:

    1. - Brady gets Bunched, by Super Manning.

    2. - Seahawks say, "This is our Hauschka"

    What is with all of the flags with a 12 on them?

    The twelve days of Christmas?

    This is for all the Seahawk doubters.

    My prediction: He who scores the most points will win and there will be a lot of crying on Monday. I'm in a good place because I like both teams, doesn't matter who wins, one of them will be in the Super Bowl.
