They started off the game great with the blocked punt but couldn't capitalize on it. Russell Wilson threw many signs of foreshadowing In the first half. He explicitly kept handing the ball off to Marshawn to take attention off of himself to see if the defense would fall asleep on him. Ahmad Brooks made a great tackle on him but after that no other attempt at the QB really stood out at me when he became vulnerable as a runner. But that really burned us in the second half as Russell Wilson decided to keep the ball on the option and gained big yards.
Colin Kaepernick struggled proving to be his career worst start (both career lows are at Seattle). He never caught his stride during the game and the defense did a great job breaking his rhythm. He had one interception that was out of his control which was a tipped ball but the other two were solid pro football interceptions. The Seahawks, likewise the Packers, stuffed our run game which is something that needs to be established for this offense to be successful.
My bold prediction was no where close to becoming a reality. Although, I was impressed my his tackling this game which improved from week 1.
Seattle really showcased their secondary this game by completely shutting down the 13 reception 200 yard receiver in Anquan Boldin. He didn't catch his first pass until 50 minutes into the game. Richard Sherman also added to the hurt by having an exceptional pick leaping up to grab it.
The 49ers also had some key injuries that game. One that must be attended to quickly is the broken ankle of Ian Williams who will now miss the remainder of the season. Hopefully Dorsey is ready to suit up and go for our fierce run stopping defense. Vernon Davis also left the game with a strained hamstring and he is still listed as day to day. Eric Reid, one of the key pieces in the defense with two picks already and some hits for the highlight real left the game with a concussion. These are three key injuries that need to be resolved ASAP.
Other than that the 49ers have nothing to worry about. It's still early in the year and this week we are back home facing Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. We must get back into full gear in order to beat this solid team. They are definitely not a team we are going to just roll over.
