Dave Krieg's Strike Beard:
When I woke up this morning, my first thought wasn't "Yay! It's Christmas!" It was "****. We lost." This one hurts. It hurts more than I thought a loss by a 7-7 Seahawks team would. It hurts because the 49ers are such a despicable, classless organization. It hurts because if one or two more plays had broken our way, we would have won. It hurts because our playoff hopes are now kaput. It hurts because now it's sinking in that season is almost over- Sometimes, like in 2009, the end of the season is a blessing. 2011 isn't like that, though. I would love to spend more than one last afternoon on New Year's Day watching these guys play. They're exciting, they're enthusiastic, and they fight...

Re-sign Big Red Bryant for starters, grab a QB of the future, have San Diego Chargers beat the Detroit Lions on Saturday, Resign The Beast. Marshawn Lynch needs to be resigned.
The Seahawks and 49ers are eerily similar teams. Both tend to play better in the second half of games than they do in the first, Seattle moreso than San Francisco. Both teams feature strong defenses; the 49ers' defense has fared better than Seattle's this season, but the difference isn't as great as you might think:
A stunning fourth-quarter sequence Saturday nearly resulted in a third consecutive road loss for the 49ers. Instead, they rallied past the host Seattle Seahawks 19-17.
