Well, to be perfectly honest, I didn’t expect this type of a win. Then again, I don’t how many people did. Why? I don’t think any of us really knew what to expect from this Seahawks team. With all the changes, there were just so many unknowns coming into this game.
Obviously that first quarter was not exactly ideal, but thanks to a solid defense – particularly against the run – the Seahawks were able to stay in the game when the offense was completely out of sync. Then a few turnovers and a few nice passes from Matt Hasselbeck and all of the sudden they have 28 points.
Alex Smith was absolutely terrible. And it makes me wonder if the 49ers can really win a division title with him at QB.
So it’s time to hear your thoughts …
1. What surprised you about this win?
2. Yes, it’s one game, but are the Seahawks better than you anticipated?
3. Does this game – based on the Hawks and Niners performances – change your expectations for this season?
4. Who gets the game ball?
