(1090 The Fan) — CSN Bay Area columnist Ray Ratto joined the John Feinstein Show on Thursday to talk 49ers football. Though the 49ers’ remaining two games do not directly involve the Seahawks, it was unavoidable to talk about what has become the biggest rivalry in the NFL.

When Feinstein asked whether the 49ers were capable of beating the Seahawks in Seattle (should it come to that in the postseason), Ratto said, “Capable? Yes. Likely? No. Seattle is still the better team, and there’s no indication that has changed dramatically.”

As you may recall, the Seahawks obliterated the Niners in the second week of the season with a defensive performance that only allowed a field goal. However, the Week 14 rematch in San Francisco featured a last-second field goal from Niners kicker Phil Dawson to squeak by the Hawks with a 19-17 win.

Ratto also talked about Seattle’s depth and how injuries have not been a problem throughout the course of the year — and a suspended Brandon Browner (who has been out with an injury for several weeks) shouldn’t be any different.

“The interesting thing, though, is they’re just as good without [Brandon] Browner as with him,” said Ratto. “I think they’re that good. They don’t miss a beat when a guy vanishes.”
