Power rankings of the NFC West Have the 49ers on top again

Week eight of the NFL regular season held some valuable lessons to be learned by the teams in the NFC west division. Some earned a great deal of credibility in learning what game time strategy allows them to be successful. Some learned that what counts is how you finish and not how you start, and that falling from the peak of the mountain can be the most painful experience. Some...

Can the Seahawks ever be road warriors?

As a lifelong Seahawks fan, that question is something I have pondered over and over again.  The answer I come up with is this:  I just do not know, but it is something that must be figured out in order for them to make the leap from pretender to contender. To be considered a legitimate contender, it simply must happen.  No team can win a Super Bowl, let alone a few playoff games...

Alex Smith had no idea he was close to completion percentage record: ‘We’re not a stats team’

Alex Smith was one passing attempt short of qualifying for the NFL’s single-game completion percentage record by a quarterback, and he said after Monday night’s win that he had no idea about being so close to the mark. “To be honest, I didn’t have any idea,” Smith responded when told about the mark on ESPN’s postgame show. As if that wasn’t enough, he added that he...

Seattle places Obomanu on IR, signs Kearse

Wide receiver Ben Obomanu has been placed on season-ending injured reserve by the Seattle Seahawks with a wrist injury suffered in Sunday's loss to Detroit. Obomanu was put on injured reserve Tuesday, although no details were given about how severe his injury was, or to which wrist. Seattle also released cornerback Danny Gorrer from the active roster.

San Francisco 49ers: Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#7)

Last week: 6 (-1) Record: 6-2 Alex Smith was 18 of 19 on Monday Night against the Cardinals, one completion shy of setting the all-time record for completion percentage in a single game. He did set the single game for most pass attempts with only 1 incompletion and that incompletion was actually a drop. The knock on him, however, is that he settled for mostly short stuff, completing...

NFL Rumors: NFL Denies 49ers QB Alex Smith Record After San Francisco Challenges Michael Crabtree Lateral

It was a near record setting performance by Alex Smith on Monday Night Football, following a 24-3 victory for his San Francisco 49ers against the Arizona Cardinals. I say near record setting, because the NFL has upheld the initial ruling made by the referees, even after the call was challenged by the 49ers. On Monday night, Smith completed an impressive 18 of 19 passes for 232 yards...

Stingy 49ers defense holds four of five opponent without a TD

Scoring touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers is proving to be one of the NFL's toughest tasks this season. The 49ers (6-2) have won four of their past five games, and they haven't allowed a touchdown in any of the victories during that span. "That's really impressive, really hard to do in this league," coach Jim Harbaugh said. "Everybody's...

Seattle Seahawks: Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#14)

Last week: 14 (-0) Record: 4-4 No the sky is not falling with this team. They just went on the road for 2 games. Everything will be fine this week when the play the Vikings back in Seattle, where they play 5 of their final 8 games. They’ll still be right in the NFC playoff mix, but they will have to win 1 more road game. 9 wins probably won’t cut it in the NFC and that’s assuming...

Lombardi's Look Back: Washington State

This piece was originally set to be published Monday afternoon, but seeing Alex Smith's record-breaking accuracy in Jim Harbaugh's and Greg Roman's San Francisco 49ers attack necessitated some added thoughts.

Pete Carroll disagrees with Spurrier, doesn’t believe Alabama could compete in the NFL

On Wednesday, Steve Spurrier told The Dan Patrick Show that the University of Alabama football team could compete in the NFL. Former University of Southern California head coach and current Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll shot down Spurrier’s pipe dream. “I was confronted with that at times [at USC] and the falsehood is to think that that could ever take place. It ain’t even...
