After narrowly beating the Seattle Seahawks at home Thursday night, 49ers guard Alex Boone thinks he knows why.
"We just kind of felt them start to give up a little bit, and they knew that we were just going to keep running the ball on them," he told the Seattle Times. "They're a tough team, very physical team, one of the best run defenses, so we knew we had to bring it."
And it seems bringing it is what they did. The 49ers basically owned the second half. The only TD of the game capped off an 86-yard, 10-play clock-killing 6 minute plus drive that ended in a TD when receiver Delanie Walker smartly got his foot within bounds inside the pylon.
Boone pointed to the success of the running game that wore the Seahawks down. Frank Gorehad 131 rushing yards (8.2 yds/carry), the team as a whole, 175.
"Hard running, physical football," Boone said. "That's what we knew we had to do in this game."

The 49ers entered the season as many experts favorite to make it to the Super Bowl. They've had a few rough outings but they are still my favorite for the NFC. They play great defense and run the ball, the formula works anywhere. They can play indoors, outdoors, snow, rain, you name it. No matter what team gets the top seed in the NFC, the 49ers can travel their gameplan...

Bump in the Road
I’m sure most people out there are as frustrated as I am with that disappointing Seahawks loss to the 49ers on Thursday night. Once again the defense did its job and the offense just never seemed to find its groove.
The Seahawks are now 0-3 against NFC West opponents which is a problem, however let’s just sit back and take our hands away from the panic button...
Relax everyone. Declining the safety makes sense. Yes, it may have screwed your 49ers to cover pick, and yes, taking points off the board seems to fly in the face of conventional wisdom but Jim Harbaugh’s decision to decline the penalty was the right one. I may be overreacting to a small sample size, but, …
