Steve, Bill & Jason talk with Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate, CBS Sports NFL expert Rob Rang, and CBS Sports Radio host John Feinstein
When the 49ers and Seahawks meet for the third time this season the stakes could not be higher. The winner will move on to the Super Bowl, while the loser will have to deal with falling just short of the big stage and to make matters worse at the hands of their hated division rival.
While I did not see a significant difference in the style — it’s still a zone blocking scheme with a goal of often getting the guards and center into the linebackers’ faces — the run play calls seemed a little bit different from Lynch’s perspective.
There was an overwhelming sense of accomplishment in Seattle’s locker room after the Seahawks knocked off the St. Louis Rams 27-9 on Sunday to wrap up the NFC West title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
I don’t care if he threw for 3,300 yards, 300 yards or three yards. Whether it’s 26 TD passed or none. Russell Wilson is the Most Valuable Player on the 53-man roster. And that’s one big-time accomplishment, considering there are several pro bowlers and at least three All-Pro’s donning Seahawks Blue every week.
Is luck something that Seattle even needs against a team they already shellacked 29-3 in Week 2? Or will San Francisco be able to make the most of their home field advantage?
Russell Wilson threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns, and the Seattle Seahawks became the first team to clinch a spot in the NFC playoffs with a 34-7 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Monday night.
The Seattle Seahawks have a tall task ahead of them in the form of the New Orleans Saints. Jason A. Churchill sees the same simple formula for victory the team enjoys every week.
While the Seahawks can’t erase the memory of last year’s 30-28 NFC Divisional Playoff loss to the Falcons, they get a decent consolation prize this season with a 33-10 beat down this Sunday.
The Seahawks are trying to bring life to an offense and a passing game that was already struggling due to poor protection for quarterback Russell Wilson.
