The Seattle Seahawks were not shy in admitting that they were happy to stick it to Jim Harbaugh with a 42-13 blowout win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. According to Seattle safety Earl Thomas, Harbaugh honked and sarcastically saluted the Seahawks’ team bus earlier in the season after the Niners won the first of two match-ups between the teams. Harbaugh says that never happened.
“No. No, that did not occur,” he said according to SFGate.com. “That’s a fabrication … I can’t remember a time where I left the game and the other team has still been there this entire season.”
I believe that means somebody is lying. Either Harbaugh did something to piss the Seahawks off and isn’t admitting to it, or they have some pretty wild imaginations that led to them wanting serious revenge against San Francisco.
Whatever the case, these two teams don’t like each other. That has become obvious this season. Seattle made an extremely loud statement by demolishing the Niners on national television. It’s starting to look like the Seahawks — not the Niners — may have the NFL’s best defense. Many consider San Francisco to be the team to beat after the way they played in New England, but it’s doubtful any team in the NFC is excited about the prospect of playing Seattle in the playoffs.
