49ers at Seahawks: Preview, prediction, odds and pick

Pete Carroll talked to 49ers GM, ex-Fox Sports analyst John Lynch more than he may wish he had

He was the offensive coordinator for an Atlanta team that past year put up a combined 60 points on Seattle in two games (a 26-24 regular season Seattle win and a 36-20 divisional playoff defeat). "I always tell them I'm like water; whatever you need me to be, I am". "He practiced the whole practice ... we'll see how he is tomorrow and all the way to game day, but he looked really good". We performed well in the preseason. We'll see whether or not he's going to be available. "Talked to him, a few text messages here and there, telling me, 'Welcome to the team, ' how this team is and what they do here".

"I said, we are just being cautious with him", Richard explained. "I have no doubts that we will be able to do that". He also seems to fit in well with the Seahawks' locker room; a number of players reached out to Richardson following the trade, with cornerback Richard Sherman being the first to call.

Seahawks offensive tackles Rees Odhiambo and German Ifedi had an terrible time last week in Green Bay. The 49ers haven't beaten the Seahawks since December 2013, and overall, Seattle has won nine of the last 10 meetings between the two teams. The 49ers lost to the Carolina Panthers in Week 1 and the Seahawks lost to the Green Bay Packers.

Carroll said Friday that Sherman played with the injury last week at Green Bay, a game in which he was on the field for all 82 snaps (and a game in which he had been listed as questionable with a thigh issue). But there should be no doubt that Kaepernick, were he still with San Francisco, would be by far the most talented quarterback on the roster. He finished that game and played two weeks later in the Super Bowl. He hired former Seahawks assistant coach Robert Saleh to bring in a defense similar to Seattle's. If the NFL Network is part of your cable package, you can also live stream the game through the NFL app on XBox, Apple TV, or Roku device on your TV.

This is essentially it for San Francisco to have any chance in Seattle.

Take away Wilson's 40 yards rushing on two scrambles and a 30-yard run from rookie Chris Carson, and the Seahawks rushed for just 20 yards on 15 carries. Head coach Pete Carroll did express disappointment in the play of the offensive line and made it clear no one other than center Justin Britt was guaranteed playing time moving forward. Seattle maintains high hopes for its season after an admittedly frustrating road loss to a rival for the NFC crown, while San Francisco barely put up a fight on its home turf. "I feel like he's had his best day today", Shanahan said on Friday.
