Desperation has driven the 49ers to a “win-at-all-cost” mentality that includes exposing Colin Kaepernick to injury (a la RG3). The experiment to turn him into a pocket passer has run its course and failed. This Sunday, if his #1 and #2 receivers are covered he will tuck the ball and run on EVERY passing play. Seahawks better shut him down early.
The iron rank rolling average looks to be rolling up for the Seahawks. Looks like we may have a blowout in week 15. I'm talking a Seattle 44-10 type blowout. I'm sure Pete Carroll will start giving the starters a rest if it gets out of hand. BUT . . . we must play as though the 49ers are the same team we played in the NFC Championship game last year, because taking any team for granted at this stage of the season could spell disaster.
This will be a easy game for the Seattle Seahawks.
in Week 15: 49ers 0 Seahawks 62
500 is dismal?
Yeah, a point differential of -12 at home is dismal. Yeah, an average score of 16.33 points per game at home is dismal, especially if the average score of your opponents at home is 18.5. Yeah, not having the ability to win a home game by more than 5 points is dismal. I think the problem with the 49ers is trying to make players like Kaepernick something they aren't (a pocket passer) instead of using each player's talents to their fullest like the Seahawks try to do. The 49ers are defensively not too bad, but the 49ers have given up trying to be a "mini-me" of the Seahawks on offense, which is actually a good fit for them. When they get back to the Seahawks basics, the 49ers will again start winning more decisively. Kaepernick, ask yourself, "What would Russell Wilson do?"
The reason for the confusion is Iron Rank updates their predictions weekly. look at how long ago some of these posts were made, and it will make sense. After week 12, they changed their mind from 49ers by 0.5 to Seahawks by 0.5. The final result was actually Seahawks by 16. Sorry 49er fans, this one can't even qualify as an "almost win." As I have said before, it would depend upon who was healthy. The Seattle D was healthy except for Brandon Mebane.
LOL. Um... They are picking the hawks to win it says it right at the top. Do you people even read anymore?
Rofl.
500 is dismal? I think you and me have a different definition of dismal.
What's the point of this conversation. If either side loses the fans will just make excuses by pointing to the refs. 49ers fan here. My confidence in the team just isn't there. Our defense is solid and with Smith back they have a great pass rush again. It's the offence that is highly questionable. There hasn't been a game all year that our offence has played well from start to finish. If our offence plays constant today then we win, but I just don't see it.
Hopefully, the latest prank by Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin criticizing the hypocrisy of the NFL won't result in any game suspensions. The Seahawk defense will be healthy (except Brandon Mebane), so the Hawks have the edge. Seattle 23 - San Francisco 49ers 16.
Check the facts before you say something stupid. Prediction is that the seahawks will win by 3 points
Whatever. We beat the 49whiners 2 times last year and they will loose again to us. GO HAWKS!!!!
I really think that Aldon, LB lynch and Cowboy will be looking to put a hurt on a wilson in this one, even at risk of penalty. I think they will play to take him down, simply because the Niners secondary turns into high gear when the pass rush is on. They play at a different level. Justin and Borland will be stuffing the Seattle Lynch game in this one to allow the game plan to unfold. It's either going to be a three point game, or with consistent pressure on Wilson, it will be a dominant Niner win with a couple of additional picks for 6. Willis and a Bowman would be nice, but LB Lynch, Borland and Aldon make for a better matchup v Seattle. I can envision Niners forcing a lot of Seahawks turnovers in this one and the secondary is much more willing to jump routes when there is pressure on Wilson. If the SF def is up to snuff, the only other question will be can Kaepernick and Roman get on the same page... And that's a big if disfunction is pissing me off. They look like a high school team when those two look like fools in the red zone.
BradT ... Just thought you might want to revisit this thread ...
You are right about everything. Especially about the Rams being no joke. They probably will get better, and they play particularly well in conference games.
Seahawks will take this game in Levi's® Stadium for many reasons, one being the Levi's® jinx. The 49ers have a dismal home record in their new stadium. The 49ers are two and two at home since moving in. The total points scored in four games played in the new stadium are 49ers 78 - Opponents 79. The 49ers lost their inaugural game in their new stadium to the lowly Bears. They also lost to the Rams, who have remained in last place in the NFC West division the whole season. The 49ers have yet to win by more than five points in that stadium. I don't think the 49ers will win a single divisional game in that stadium this season, because their home facility is unlucky for them. It is just not a good fit. Maybe going back to Candlestick Park is an option. Seahawks by 10+.
In every prediction, there is a bias factor. When they choose a winner by 0.5 points, they are calling the game a toss up (too close to call), but giving the edge to their favorite of the two teams. It should be pretty obvious where their sentiments lie with respect to the 49ers, but the stats seem to say otherwise, don't they? Both the 49ers and the Steelers seem to get more bias points from this group in my opinion, but statistics can only account for a limited number of variables. There are innumerable intangibles that can affect a game's outcome, the number one being the game plans.
Too many crucial, unknown variables to call this one now. Seattle backups are better than 49er backups, but 49ers may have more starters returning by game time, including one scheduled to come off of suspension next week. Given more playing time, some Seahawk backups are starting to get hot, so it may not be as much a factor. If the Seahawks are still using second and third string players in key positions come game time, (49ers 21, Seahawks 19 in San Francisco) and (Seahawks 22, 49ers 18 in Seattle). If both teams are at full strength, Seattle by eleven at San Francisco (28-17) and by 18 at Seattle (32-14). It all depends upon who can play on game day.
The last time the Seahawks played in San Francisco, the 49er fans were just as loud as the Seahawks fans in Seattle, and it had a noticeable effect. The 49ers and their fans have been imitating the Seahawks in virtually every category for years. The franchise and the fans have become kind of a "mini me" version of the Seahawks. Over the past 10 seasons, excluding pre-season games, the SEAHAWKS and the FORTY-NINERS have met 21 times head-to-head in regular and post season games; 11 times in SEATTLE and 10 times in SAN FRANCISCO. SEATTLE has won 13 games and scored 519 points. SF won 8 games and scored 348 points. The SEAHAWKS won 4 games in SAN FRANCISCO and the FORTY-NINERS won two games in SEATTLE. AT HOME, the FORTY-NINERS won 6 of 10 games against the SEAHAWKS by a combined score of 216 to 211; a difference of only 5 points or an average of only one-half of a point per game. AT HOME, the SEAHAWKS won 9 of 11 games by a combined score of 308 to 132; a difference of 176 more points than the FORTY-NINERS. That means the SEAHAWKS outscored the FORTY-NINERS by an average of 16 poiints per game. Twice during the past ten seasons, the SEAHAWKS shutout the FORTY-NINERS in SEATTLE. The FORTY-NINERS have not shut out the SEAHAWKS. Seven (7) times the SEAHAWKS scored 30 or more points in a game, winning all of those games. The FORTY-NINERS scored 30 or more points 3 times, losing one of them in SAN FRANCISCO to the SEAHAWKS in overtime. The SEAHAWKS scored 40 or more points 3 times, once in SAN FRANCISCO and twice in SEATTLE, winning all three. The FORTY-NINERS scored 40 or more points 1 time in SAN FRANCISCO. Over the past ten seasons, the SEAHAWKS won 6 NFC West Championships, the FORTY-NINERS won 2 NFC West Championships, and the CARDINALS won 2 NFC West Championships. Over the past ten seasons, the SEAHAWKS won 2 NFC Championships; the FORTY-NINERS won 1; and the CARDINALS won 1. Over the past ten seasons, the SEATTLE SEAHAWKS were the only team from the NFC West to win a Super Bowl. The stats clearly show that the Seahawks have dominated the NFC West conference and the 49ers over the past ten seasons, but each season and each game stands alone. Past victories mean nothing. Montana and Young were great, but cannot help the 49ers anymore. Likewise the Seahawks cannot add past scores to the upcoming games.
typical seahawk fan, always defensive.
... hmmm ... what HAPPENED? ... SF IS GOING HOME!!! ... LOSERS I MIGHT ADD!!! #GOHAWKS!
Hmmm ... they've been right on both games with the 49ers this season. They predicted the 1st matchup a Seahawks win, the second matchup a 49ers win ... and it looks like they picked the Seahawks to win the 3rd matchup. They were right the first two times ... looks like they will be right the 3rd time too. #GOHAWKS!
looks like iron rank is doing good again.. seahawks by 4.5 points..
