San Francisco 49ers vs Seattle Seahawks: preview and prediction

It may have taken the tenth week of the NFL season for the San Francisco 49ers to get their first win, but going into the bye week, it couldn’t have been a better time. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan were finally able to celebrate their first win as the duo of general manager and head coach. Going into the bye week, it was great for that first win, but it is equally as important heading into an NFC West rivalry against the Seattle Seahawks. Coming off the win against the New York Giants and...

Cassius Marsh gets Seahawks reunion—in 49ers uniform

Fourth-year defensive end drafted by the Seahawks in 2014 was a liability for the Patriots but adds depth to the ailing San Francisco defensive front

Since Cassius Marsh was released by the New England Patriots Tuesday he was immediately considered a possibility to rejoin the Seattle Seahawks—who traded Marsh to New England for draft picks in September—after they cut defensive end Dwight Freeney the same day. Instead, the San Francisco 49ers picked Marsh off the waiver wire, meaning the...

Seahawks-49ers preview: 5 Qs, 5 As with Niners Nation

In Week 2, the Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers, but the score was only 12-9 ... and it required a Russell Wilson to run a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter ... and it was at home ... and the Seahawks had Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman, and Cliff Avril ...

So nothing is guaranteed this Sunday as Seattle goes to San Francisco to face the Niners again.

The 49ers also look significantly different than they did in Week 2, so to get some more info on the team, I sent David...

Releasing Dwight Freeney was completely logical

Many fans of the Seattle Seahawks have been greatly disappointed by the release this week of veteran defensive end Dwight Freeney, who brought his veteran swagger and patented spin move to the northwest and promptly recorded three sacks in his first two games with the team. The release has left fans asking why he was released, and what the team was thinking in releasing him, but the move seems to make sense once all the pieces are put together.

The first, and most obvious piece, is that the...

I’m thankful that the Seahawks have these things

Seattle Seahawks edition

Ten years ago if I had told you the fate for the 2007-2017 Seahawks, you might have called me a liar. Hell, I would’ve called me a liar. I’m thankful for a lot, but specifically within the Seattle Seahawks organization I’m thankful for the following.

I’m thankful for good management Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Thankful for Seahawks football

It’s Thanksgiving, which means multiple things including the day off work, a full day of Thursday football, Black Friday shopping tomorrow and tons of turkey, stuffing and the likes for everyone to eat. It is also a day with historical roots in giving thanks for what the year has brought.

Some fans are not thankful that the Seattle Seahawks are 6-4 thus far in the 2017 season, as hopes and aspirations were for better. For others, 6-4 through the first ten games represents far better than...

Seahawks-49ers preview: Russell Wilson against the blitz and more to watch for

The Seattle Seahawks will head to San Francisco to take on the 49ers on Sunday, closing out their 2017 season series after defeating the 49ers all the way back in week two. For the Seahawks, it’s a quick turnaround following Monday night’s crushing loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Now 6-4 and on the outside looking in at the NFC playoff picture, Seattle desperately needs to win games like Sunday’s in San Francisco. A win would see them improve to 4-0 in the division, one game up on the...

Report: Lions claim Dwight Freeney on waivers

One day after being waived by the Seattle Seahawks, defensive end Dwight Freeney is getting a chance with another playoff contender. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Freeney was claimed by the Detroit Lions. Freeney’s sample size in 2017 was small, but impressive. After signing with Seattle in October, the seven-time Pro Bowler recorded three sacks in four games.This will reunite Freeney with Detroit head coach Jim Caldwell. Freeney was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in 2002, the...

Steve Hutchinson announced as 2018 Hall of Fame semifinalist

Late Tuesday the NFL announced that 27 former players have made the list of semifinalists for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame with the 2018 class, and included in the list are two former offensive linemen who started their careers with the Seattle Seahawks, Kevin Mawae and Steve Hutchinson.

Both were drafted by Seattle, but left in free agency at the end of their rookie contracts, with Hutchinson alienating many fans when he signed a contract containing a poison pill that made...

Identity Shift: Falcons give thanks to the Seahawks for many free yards

Giving thanks after a loss is no fun at all, but there’s one aluminum lining: the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Los Angeles Rams also lost last weekend, and by a lot. If the Seahawks keep pace with the Rams and win the head-to-head at their thirty-acre (former) fortress, the division crown will stay in Seattle.

Against the Vikings in Minnesota, the Rams looked lost on offense after an opening touchdown drive. They managed 184 total yards after their early score, and their drives...

Defensive line needs to improve quick for Seahawks to make deep postseason run

A unit with a ton of promise has made advances at stopping the run in November, but needs to transform into a premier pass rushing group to help Seattle contend in 2017

By the time you read this there might already be more clarity around the Seattle Seahawks’ decision to release veteran pass rusher Dwight Freeney following Monday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons, but as of this writing the move remains perplexing.

Perhaps Freeney initially signed with the Seahawks because at 4-2 he viewed...
