Here are the grades for the Seahawks' 12-9 win over the 49ers Sunday. "We're going to do really well, we're going to have a really good season, and I hope it shows sooner than later".
"That's how I feel about Earl", Hoyer added. It was an image of a battered boxer, and Hoyer. Actually the receiver Seattle traded before the regular season began scored two touchdowns for the Jets before the Seahawks reached the end zone.
But then the Seahawks went to the hurry-up mode with no-huddle plays that worked for their only two scores, field goals, the previous week in the 17-9 loss at Green Bay.
The 49ers rallied from a 6-0 deficit to take a 9-6 lead with 11:36 remaining in the fourth quarter.
And typically the Seahawks have beaten the 49ers by getting back to basics, averaging 160 yards rushing in those four wins.
"The fight. That's what I take away", Hyde said afterward.
"But I can't get that game back", said Lane, who played just eight snaps before being tossed. I put it all on my shoulders.
Seattle's defense, however, forced seven punts of its own and also intercepted Hoyer when his short pass over the middle to Hyde was grabbed instead by linebacker Bobby Wagner, the second time Hoyer has been fooled by an inside linebacker in as many weeks. He finished with 124 yards on just 15 carries.
"It looked out there like he struggled".
Now the Niners have a short week in preparation for Game No. 3. Although the 49ers allowed their share of pressure, the offensive line was better than a week ago with Laken Tomlinson taking over at left guard for Zane Beadles.
The goal for Sunday was to get Jimmy Graham more involved in the offense in Week 2. It's a quick turnaround. Defensively, the 49ers are yielding 23.0 points and 287.0 total yards (171.0 in passing and 116.0 in rushing per game).
"The guy (expletive) killed the quarterback", Staley said. Last Sunday, the Panthers ran off the final 8:48.
Carson, a seventh-round draft pick from Oklahoma State, has been one of the pleasant surprises for the Seahawks, who are 1-1 despite scoring only one touchdown in those two games.
The 49ers haven't beaten Seattle since December, 2013.
I've been scared of these big lines all week, but I don't see how the 49ers get a ball in the end zone here.
After 7 ½ quarters of offensive inefficiency, the Seattle Seahawks finally broke the seal on the goal line. Hyde chipped in with three catches for 19 yards. They played a lot of Cover 3 and Cover 1, and rely on their front 4 to generate pressure, which worked for all but one drive, when Russell Wilson made a decision to tuck the ball and run past edge rushers. One of which would probably have been returned for a touchdown.
-49ers WR Pierre Garcon vs. Seahawks CB Richard Sherman. "I wasn't just trying to get out there, 'Oh he's tough, he's finishing out the game.' I wanted to go make a difference". He lasted about five minutes before walking off the field with trainers again.
San Francisco lost safety Eric Reid to a knee injury in the third quarter. Victor Bolden lined up as the kick returner in his National Football League debut and delivered a 34-yard return on his first attempt. Armstrong was briefly benched for Brock Coyle in the first half after he blew a couple of assignments.
