Seahawks see Rawls, Sherman in lineup vs 49ers

Seahawks see Rawls, Sherman in lineup vs 49ers

Losing the opening game is not awful. Three points in Week 1 against Carolina was evidence of that, and it doesn't get any easier this time around with the Seahawks defense looking to dominate after a Week 1 loss. Unfortunately, the worst offensive line in the National Football League (by a longshot) lived up to its reputation as Seattle could not get anything going offensively, managing just 225 total yards in the 17-9 loss to the Packers. With Thomas Rawls set to return, the Seahawks will be at full strength.

RENTON Pete Carroll used to share with John Lynch all kinds of wisdom and philosophies on how he remade the Seahawks into a Super Bowl champion.

The 49ers performed well against the run in their season opening loss to the Carolina Panthers, 23-3. San Francisco allowed an NFL-most 2,654 rushing yards last season as well as an NFL-high 4.8 yards per carry. The 49ers are going to have to find a way to get off the field to take a step forward this season.

Seattle has its own offensive issues, beginning with the line. However, Rawls won't make much of a difference if the offensive line doesn't improve after a woeful performance against the Packers.

Unfortunately for the 49ers, if things go according to how the odds think they will, they could be in for a rough day in Seattle on Sunday afternoon.

This is going to be fun to watch as Hoyer will be venturing into a hornet's nest on Sunday as the 12s are ruthless on quarterbacks with crowd noise. He has been in a walking boot and will not play vs. the Seahawks. And yet the Seahawks had chances to win the game.

Saban said Forristall will have an MRI on Sunday. "I was really proud of the effort our football team gave tonight", Bobo said. Scarbrough outcarried fellow Crimson Tide running back Damien Harris 12 to 11 on the day.

If an upset does take place, though, it will focus on five key matchups.

Sherman, in fact, has never missed a game since coming to Seattle in 2011 and appears ready to go for Sunday after taking part in all of Friday's practice after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday with a hamstring injury. Sherman should be matched up against Garcon in what will be a tightly contested battle anytime Garcon gets the ball thrown his way.

Griffin has already garnered praise from his teammates, especially Richard Sherman who's wonderful by his poise for such a young age.

For a team that continues to say its offense is predicated by the run, those numbers aren't acceptable. Packers pass rushers were in the Seattle backfield all game long, causing havoc on Russell Wilson and stifling the running game.

In 2015, the Seahawks beat the 49ers 20-3 four days after a stunning last-second loss to Carolina and then 29-13 after an nearly equally stunning home defeat to Arizona.
