It’s a great way to start off the month after the Seahawks finished off the month of November with a win on the road against their NFC West rival. The 49ers were dominated from start to finish and Richard Sherman was among Colin Kaepernick’s favorite targets as he hauled in two interceptions.
The 19-3 win puts Seattle in control of their own destiny for the NFC West title and for the second straight week they hold their opponent to only three points. The defense is starting to look like the one we remember from last year’s Super Bowl run and they’re hitting their stride just in time to take on one of the league’s most potent offenses.
One interesting thing about the last four games is that three of the remaining teams on the Seahawks schedule are playing with their backup quarterback. Mark Sanchez, however, has been playing better than any of them and his only loss since taking over has been against the Packers.
This is a great matchup for the Seahawks. The Eagles turn the ball over more than any other team in the league. Their strength on offense also matches up against Seattle’s strength on defense. The Seahawks are very good against defending screen passes and attacking the perimeter.
On the offensive side, the Eagles have shown they struggle against power runs inside the tackles, so we can hope to see a strong effort by Marshawn Lynch and company. If Seattle can sustain the attack on the ground that should also help them in time of possession and keeping the Eagles offense that likes to run plays as quickly as possible to wear defenses down.
After this week, it’s on to three straight NFC West opponents to close out the season. Looking forward to Sunday!

Sea Hawkers podcast: 49ers recap and Eagles preview with guests Cedric, Jenny and Norb
Not only are we celebrating a win over our NFC West rivals on Thanksgiving, we are also celebrating our 50th show. To commemorate the occasion, we form our own legion of Seahawks fans and start with a guy who is in fact a member of Mama Sherman’s Legion of Super Fans. Cedric James Morris joins the show to talk about how he got the effort started to get Richard and Beverly Sherman highlighted as the new face of Campbell’s Chunky Soup.
Right after we launched last week’s show, Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin performed an epic skit/press conference and we talk about a recent article about Marshawn Lynch considering retirement.
Next on our guest list and considering Jenny Goos has been our most frequent guest over the past 50 shows, she was a clear choice to bring on the show especially with her recent selection as STAR 101.5’s12th Woman of the week.
We move on to preview the matchup with the Eagles and then chop it up with our final guest of the day, Norb Caoili who has been entertaining us this year with his recent Rivals video series. Norb also talks about his Norb-Cam videos and the reason for the shift from YouTube to Vimeo for catching his game reactions and recaps.
Before we get into the second half of the show, we squeeze in a call that came in right after we finished recording for this week. It was just too good to leave out and it involves an offer to buy beers for Adam and Brandan when the Seahawks make the playoffs. (It had to be officially documented.) Then we get to your latest reviews, offer our nominees for “Do Better!” and announce our picks for who is better at life than Skip Bayless this week.
