    The only stat that means anything to me is the CenturyLink Field 8‐4 record, and that doesn’t really mean a whole lot.

  2. BlowMontana says:

    Here we go folks.
    The ref is Gene Steratore … who happens to be from Stealer Country.

    More importantly, his crew got hammered by the NFL for not calling pass interference and roughness more closely several weeks ago:
    http://mmqb.si.com/2013/12/06/peter-king-week-with-officiating-crew-part-three/

    Just like last week in Carolina, the refs are going to be in the tank for the Whiners. If you’re in the stadium … let them know that’s not acceptable.

  3. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    If I can quote Cortez Kennedy “stats are for losers because when you win it don’t matter”

  4. I might be naïve and maybe even a bit foolish but I doubt that Gene Steratore’s crew will call this game any different from what they would normally call it. I’d be interested in knowing the flag stats for this crew before the situation back several weeks vs. what they’ve called in the weeks since. Is there a statistical difference? I bet not a lot, if any.

    That said, both these teams play very physical on both sides of the ball. Maybe it will be a bit tighter in the first quarter in order to maintain control of the game, but that will lean more towards the personal foul types than the PI types.

    I’ve got a sneaking hunch the 49ers will try to be the tough guys much like the Saints did. Only difference is the 49ers are tough, the Saints not so much. But the Hawks are awfully tough themselves, so it will be chippy. I’d be willing to take a late hit call on Breno IF it happens early, IF it sets the tone for the entire team, and IF it’s not while we’re in a scoring position.

    Beyond that, our guys are going to have to be mentally tough as well as physically tough. Bottom line, whichever team has more “mental midgets” that go getting themselves stupid personal foul penalties, is the team that’s going to hurt most.

  5. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    The 9ers will not bully us, impossible… Also I believe the referees will call a few 15 yard penalties early in the game to try and take control. I just hope we dont kill ourselves with dumb Mistakes.

  6. bird_spit says:

    turn-overs is significant, and same is true for the game. All it takes is one fumble or interception and the game will change momentum.

    Sunday yet?

  7. wow, the seahawks allowed 700 yards less than the niners this season.

  8. I always dislike comparing old statistics. What happened more than a few weeks ago doesn’t mean much in the NFL. We know these teams are even. On any given Sunday, either of these teams can and just might pound their opponent into the dirt.

  9. seahawksteven777 says:

    I love how the media talks about the Seahawks and their “slumping” passing game. What’s not slumping? Throwing for 300+ yards every game? The Seahawks are a running team. Maybe this whole “slump” thing would be more of a concern if we were a passing team but we are not. We win with a good defense, running game, and efficiency at quarterback. Ala, a point guard. Wilson doesn’t need to put up big numbers for Seattle to win. Week 2 proved that.

    And it’s not like the 49ers are a much better passing team. They average 200 yards passing in the last 2 playoff games. Um, not really that impressive. And their stats on the year in passing aren’t that great either. What makes that more unimpressive is that they have Vernon Davis, Boldin, and Crabtree. With the addition of Crabtree returning from injury, they only average 232 yards passing.

  10. Seahawksteven777 +1

    The Seahawks and Niners aren’t passing teams; they are winning teams that pass enough to win. There are plenty of good passing teams out there losing games every week.

  11. PFF has Michael Bennett as the 7th highest rated edge rusher. Thats pretty cool considering he spends a significant part of his time rushing from inside as a DT. I hope he is a priority and the team finds a way to resign him this off season.

  12. seahawksteven777 says:

    And let’s not forget the strength of this offensive line. The run blocking. That plays a factor into the “slumping” passing numbers too. The strength and mantra of this team is to run the ball. I know, it’s obvious but it does explain things a little bit as Marshawn got 28 carries in the Saints game. Going to need another great game from the Beast.

  13. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    I actually think Bennet would have more sacks if were a fulltime DE.

  14. MoSeahawk12 says:

    But not the very worst o-line in the entire NFL as often mentioned….weekly. Starters missing half the season hurt the continuity of the group as well. If they keep blocking for Lynch the way they have the past few weeks, I don’t think this ranking will mean much. Wilson has been sacked less than earlier in the season as well. These are the guys we have and they have to finish strong to win it all.

  15. I agree Mike, but he is also our best interior pass rusher….. so he is a pretty valuable guy where ever he lines up. I say we pay the man.

  16. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    Yes Bennett is a keeper

  17. banosser says:

    I’m stoked Bowie has replaced McCarp @ LG… but I will be interested to see how he and Okung handle the sf R DL stunts..

  18. I think the PFF rankings are bunk. The only important statistic in football is Wins vs Losses. The other statistics are all suspect and belong in the realm of fantasy football. Any team with a 13-3 record had a pretty decent offensive line.

  19. SEA 27 SF 23

  20. shoehawks says:

    The most significant stat.? Seahawks vs. 49ers record in the NFC championship game… 0-0.

    Go ‘Hawks. Another championship opportunity.

  21. Michael Bowie is a rookie. A rookie. However, he’s such an improvement over McQuistan and Carpenter that it utterly baffles me. Our OL with Bowie at LG our OL is significantly better which is crazy considering he hasn’t played much and is an undrafted rookie (who played bad at RT).

  22. This game is tighter than Jenna Jameson in the late 80′s.

  23. Seahawks 21, Douchebags 17.

  24. I’m watching the replay of the Seahawks/Whiners game on NFLN right now from early in the season right now.

    I knew that this was the game in which Okung went down, but didn’t remember that the game was 0-0 early in the 2nd quarter when he went out and missed the rest of the game (and following months).

    Wilson went on to take a huge hit from Smith shortly after Okung went out, too.

    However, the Hawks would pound them without their LT so that is encouraging, too (even though they lost with him on the road).

  25. I don’t know her exact age in the late eighties but I doubt Jenna Jameson was still tight.

    I would have loved to see Bowie starting sooner but thank the maker he’s in now. Ravens pulled a similar o line switch up for the playoffs last year and we know it worked.

  26. WiscCory says:

    No press conferences today?!?

    Oh, perhaps there wasn’t practice. WTH, it’s championship week! They should be practicing.

    I hate this newest collective bargaining agreement!

    Guess I’ll just settle on some of the podcasts on 710 website.

  27. You can bid on the jersey that Wilson wore during the Saints play-off game:

    http://auctions.seahawks.com/items/1998/russell-wilson-game-worn-3-jersey-1-11-14-vs-new-orleans-saints

    Still over 6 days to go on the bidding and it’s over $4,000 already!

  28. Tomorrow is when all the teams have pressers. NFLN is covering it for 6 hours or so..

  29. You mean this game is tighter than Harbaugh’s sphincter 24/7.
    He is a strange one.
