The Seahawks fly down to San Francisco this weekend to take on the 49ers, so you should brush up on your enemy. Follow these links to do just that.

49ers Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman Discusses Seahawks Matchup - Niners Nation - 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman took some time today to chat with the media about Sunday's game with the Seahawks. We've got some ideas about what to expect from the 49ers offense, but with a truncated offseason there are still plenty of question marks as to what we'll see this Sunday and further into the season. As Coach Roman states after the jump, the offense will likely have less volume than we would have seen if there had been no lockout.
49ers vs. Seahawks: Predicting The Unpredictable? - Niners Nation - As we head into Sunday's 49ers-Seahawks game, I was hoping to put together a prediction post for individual stats for the game. Maybe have everybody post their predictions for Alex Smith, Frank Gore, Vernon Davis, Braylon Edwards and Michael Crabtre, among others. We've been listening to what the coaches have to say and trying to anticipate the plans for Sunday and it might be fun to have everybody throw out their best guesses on the skill position players.
49ers vs. Seahawks Preview: SS Donte Whitner vs. TE Zach Miller - Niners Nation - This past offseason, the San Francisco 49ers acquired a new signal caller. No, not Colin Kaepernick -- I'm talking about safety Donte Whitner. During his tenure in Buffalo, Whitner made all the calls for their defense and is now being asked by San Francisco to take control of the secondary.
49ers vs. Seahawks: The Jim Harbaugh Era Begins In Earnest - SB Nation Bay Area - Following the debacle in Seattle to open the 2010 season, the 49ers hope to get the Jim Harbaugh era off to a better start against the Seahawks. We'll be here with news updates, injury reports and recaps of the game.
49ers WRs vs. Seahawks: Time to Get The Ball Rolling - Niners Nation - Phew... The 49ers dodged a bullet when they received news that their new big-play acquisition will not be penalized by the league by means of a suspension. Instead, the socially troublesome Braylon Edwards will be forced to pay a $50,000 fine for violating the leagues substance abuse policy.
49ers vs. Seahawks: Will We See Some Surprises From The 49ers Defense? - Niners Nation - Much of the preseason we have been discussing the idea that the 49ers offense is keeping things relatively vanilla in order to avoid revealing too much before the start of the season. The question we haven't discussed is how much the defense has revealed to date and what we will see this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Yesterday before practice, cornerback Tarell Brown commented on the subject:
Alex Smith, Offensive Line Ready For the Pass Rush? - Niners Nation - Alex Smith spoke with the media today and discussed a variety of issues heading into the 49ers matchup this Sunday with the Seattle Seahawks. One of the issues he mentioned that is on all of our minds is the idea that teams could bring a lot of pressure against the 49ers this season. The line performed well against the Raiders and Chargers but was completely bulldozed by the Saints and Texans.
Pete Carroll vs. Jim Harbaugh: Can't Get Enough Of It - Niners Nation - One of the biggest storylines heading into Sunday's 49ers-Seahawks matchup is the return of Jim Harbaugh vs. Pete Carroll. In reality it's likely an entirely overblown storyline. Harbaugh might want to take down Carroll, but in reality it's no big deal. Of course, that doesn't mean we're not going to enjoy every last drop of it.
Ted Ginn Discusses The Wide Receiver Position In The 49ers System - Niners Nation - Ted Ginn Jr. took a few minutes to chat with CSN Bay Area yesterday about preparing for the season and the work the wide receivers have done thus far in training camp (h/t to Drew for finding this video). The highlight had to be Anthony Dixon walking by behind Ginn and letting the audience know how he felt. He certainly does enjoy himself.
49ers-Seahawks Injury News: Dashon Goldson Does Not Expect To Play Sunday - Niners Nation - In case there was any need for clarification, Eric Branch just tweeted that 49ers free safety Dashon Goldson does not expect to play Sunday versus the Seahawks. This would mean either Reggie Smith or Madieu Williams would get the start in his place. It sounds like Reggie Smith is back at practice and recovered from his torn meniscus. On the other hand, Madieu Williams got almost all the free safety playing time against the Chargers. I guess we'll just have to wait until game day to see the starting lineup.
