This has a knack for being a defensive slugfest that everybody should enjoy!
Both defenses are fearless and talk a bunch of game, although they back it up with the best of them.
Seattle and San Francisco are second and third respectively, but they are fourth and first in points allowed per game respectively as well.
The playmakers on offense are not all that great, but the stars on defense are undeniable. They track down studs in their sleep and the depth is filthy good.
Bobby Wagner (Seattle) and Patrick Willis (San Francisco) are freaks on defense and they are not the only ones.
The defensive backs of Seattle may have given up a ton of yards to the Patriots, but they managed to pick up a huge interception in the endzone towards the end of the game. That play was significant in deciding the outcome and they will need Alex Smith to do the same.
In fact, New England had the ball inside the Seattle 25 ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Seahawks came back to beat to beat the Patriots 24-23 on Sunday, much to the delight of Richard Sherman. Sherman, a second-year corner from Stanford, intercepted Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the third quarter. His teammate, safety Earl Thomas, turned the trick in the fourth quarter. The two picks plus the team’s comeback prompted Sherman to gloat about beating Brady through...
Former Detroit Lions general manager Matt Millen was a guest on the The Wheelhouse on 95.7 The Game in San Francisco and was very critical of how 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis played.When Willis came on the show he was asked if it was fair for Millen to say that he played the worst game of his career.“[Laughs] Oh man it’s like what it is with anything,” said Willis. “We...
It is really disturbing the amount of stabbings, shootings and fights that are happening before, during and after sporting events. The latest being at Candlestick park before the 49ers vs. Giants game. The AP is reporting a fan was stabbed in the neck when he got into an argument with a group of men outside of the stadium. Two men are being sought in connection with the stabbing...
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman wants to be known as one of the league’s top corners, and he wants the respect for his team that he feels they deserve. He’s loudly taking care of both. Sherman went back and forth with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, and got the last laugh after the Seahawks upset the [...]

The San Francisco 49ers drop their record to 4-2 after being dealt a healthy dose of reality in a painfully lopsided loss to the New York Giants in week six 26-3. The Giants came into Candlestick Park on Sunday and handed the 49ers their worst loss since Jim Harbaugh took over as head coach. A night that saw the 49ers squander away numerous opportunities to the advantageous Giants...
San Francisco 49ers left tackle Joe Staley has been knocked out of today’s game against the Giants with a concussion.This is a big loss for the Niners, Staley is one of the NFL’s best left tackles.
So what does it mean that Colin Kaepernick finished the San Francisco 49ers' game Sunday against the New York Giants? Are the 49ers grooming him to eventually replace Alex Smith? Was Smith's sprained middle finger hurting more than he let on? Or were the 49ers simply protecting Smith after he was sacked four times? More than likely it's the latter. As is his pattern...
ESPN - Teddy Bruschi ChatHi Teddy. Do you think Richard Sherman twitter comments were classless. And do you think he has the guts to say to Vince Wilfork instead of going after a franchise quaterback?Tommy, Vince Wilfork doesn't play offense and Tom Brady was talking trash out there, too. The Seahawks' secondary had a huge day. There was trash-talking going on during the...
The Seattle Seahawks pulled off an upset victory of the Patriots on Sunday, beating them 24-23. Seahawks cornerback, Richard Sherman tweeted a message out to the Pats superstar Tom Brady following the game. Seems as if the QB was trash talking Sherman and safety Earl Thomas before the game. First, there was this: But that [...]

If you were looking for the hit of the weekend from the NFL's week six, it came from the Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner.
Watch as he lights up New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker:

Russell Wilson found Sidney Rice behind the secondary for a
46-yard touchdown with 1:18 remaining, and the Seattle Seahawks
rallied for 14 points in the final 7:31 to stun the New England
Patriots 24-23 Sunday.
LAST WEEK: 6-8
SEASON: 55-36 (60%)
The Seahawks are coming off a huge win against the Pats and the 49ers are coming off a really rough loss to the Giants, but San Francisco's defense is just too good to lose to Russell Wilson no matter how good the Seattle defense plays.
Both of these teams were big underdogs in their...
A humbled coach Jim Harbaugh gives his takes on the game after the 49ers were routed 26-3 by the New York Giants on Sunday at Candlestick Park.
New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride admitted that he was “shocked” by Jim Harbaugh’s comments last week.“I have great respect for their front, and I have unbelievable respect for the guy (Smith), tremendous,” Gilbride told the New York Daily News. “But it (defensive holding) is something he does. He reaches out and grabs people. …“I thought it was...
